However, it seems that Nvidia is withholding some important information regarding its new graphics card. According to Delidded Tech, a considerable amount of information is hidden in HTML source code of Nvidia`s GTX 1080 web page.
According to the source, they data mined through the code and found some interesting information which was commented out:
- The performance benchmarks shown were conducted at 2560×1600 max settings.
- Nvidia SLI bridge is also available for pre-order, though the stock is limited.
- The SLI bridge will be available at Amazon, Microcenter and FRYS.
- Maximum VGA resolution is 2048×1536.
- Texture fill rate for the card is 176 GB/sec.
- Up to 3X times performance had a disclaimer commented out. The disclaimer is “based on test results in graphics intensive VR gaming applications”.
In the graph comparison of the GTX 980 and GTX 1080, exact numbers of comparison are not shown and fans are forced to estimate the performance for themselves. According to the site, they inspected the elements to view the width of chart bars in pixels, and GTX 1080 works 70% better on Witcher 3 and 80% better on Rise of the Tomb Raider.
It is important to mention that this commented out information inside GTX 1080 website HTML code could be changed in the future and also this information could be inaccurate.
According to the site, they found a commented out element that mentioned the memory bandwidth for the card is 336.5 GB/sec, but the GTX 1080 site mentions 320 GB/sec. This could mean that Nvidia wanted to achieve this number but lowered it, may be due to technical difficulties.
