The researcher Jordi Bujons from the CSIC-CID has been able to test the new NVDIA GTX 1080Ti, on the SIE Ladon G-1P Workstation, verifying a significant improvement in the tests carried out.
“For the tests, Amber 16 + update 6, CUDA 8.0 and Nvidia driver 318.13 were used, with Persistence Mode and Exclusive Mode activated.”

“The 1080Ti has generally performed somewhat better (5-6%) or similar to the XP.”

The 1080Ti in general has given excellent performances. In fact, Amber considers it to be the best value for money GPU ever, so far. The reason is that the GTX 1080Ti gives a very similar performance to the GTX Titan XP, with a much more adjusted price.
In the Amber 16 benchmarks, a price of 1.12 $ ns/day is considered and SIE has launched a Workstation that contributes in the complete system with this GPU, less than €5 ns/day. It is probably the most affordable and powerful Workstation we have released to date.
