New Pictures Of GTX 1080 Show Just One Power Connector, No D-Sub (VGA) Support
Nvidia has announced its next generation of Pascal GPUs, the GTX 1080 and 1070, and after learning their specs the whole internet just melted. Now, the first pictures of the flagship GTX 1080 have just hit the web.
The pictures comes via TechPowerUp, and according to the report the first glimpse of GTX 1080 was caught on its pre-Dreamhack launch event. The card looks way much cool than its previous photos.
What we can learn from these photos of GTX 1080 is that there are two main attractions: first is that GTX 1080 is drawing power through a single 8-pin PCIe power connector which speaks a lot about the power consumption capabilities of this card.
Secondly, the card features a similar display connector layout as its previous generation of graphics card, but it looks like the connectivity is revamped. The card supports DisplayPort 1.4 which supports high resolutions, and HDMI 2.0b and a dual-link DVI port.
It also looks like that Nvidia is done with supporting legacy D-Sub (VGA) analog connector in its latest graphics card. The card`s DVI connector does not have any kind of wiring for analog signals. Also, the retail card won`t include any DVI to D-sub converters, even the aftermarket converters will not work.
On the other hand, AMD had stopped supporting legacy D-Sub (VGA) analog connector way back in 2013 with the Radeon R9 290 series.
