The GTX 1080 Ti and plenty more

Nvidia UK has released a neat teaser that suggests that something big will be coming at the Consumer Electronics Show 2017 which opens its doors on January 5th.

While it did not provide any specific details in its latest teaser posted by Nvidia UK, we already know that Nvidia has big plans for the CES 2017 show including an opening keynote address from its co-founder and CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang. According to the announcement at Nvidia's website, the company will be unveiling technologies in artificial intelligence (AI), self-driving cars, and gaming.

In an earlier LinkedIn leak, Nvidia has pretty much confirmed that the GTX 1080 Ti will be coming at CES 2017 as well as its new Club Geforce Elite, a subscription-based service that will give certain bonuses.

As rumored, the GTX 1080 Ti should pack the same 16nm GP102 Pascal GPU, as the Titan X, but with a lower number of SM units, leaving it at anywhere between 2560 CUDA cores on the GTX 1080 and 3584 CUDA cores on the Titan X. It will also market the card as a step-up card for GTX 980 Ti users, which also get the first spot in line for the GTX 1080 Ti, but also make GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 users quite angry.

Latest leaks from Nvidia also show the new Shield Console and possibly the new GTX 1050 Mobile graphics card, that should replace the GTX 960M and GTX 950M in new Kaby Lake mid-range notebooks.

In any case, Nvidia will have a big presence at CES 2017 and hopefully, it will also have a surprise or two.
