The new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080.

Earlier this month, NVIDIA introduced its latest gaming graphics cards powered by the new Pascal Architecture, the GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070. Now, we take a closer look at these powerful beasts.

At an event in Bangkok, Thailand, we got the opportunity to witness what the GTX 1080, and its new features, can do.

Equipped with Ansel technology, the GTX 1080 brings you the art of in-game photography. It lets you take screenshots of your game with loads of extra options to choose from. When you switch this in-game camera feature on, you can easily take ultra-high-resolution image captures of your game, and it gives you the ability to make all the necessary adjustments to make them look great.

There’s Super Resolution, which produces images up to 4.5 gigapixels by stitching up to 3,600 tiles on a screen to form a single image with 1.5GB of detail.

The Free Camera mode, on the other hand, allows you to pause the game, move the camera away, zoom in or out, and roll the camera around to get the perfect stills.

You can also add filters if you want with Post-Process Filters.

Then there are EXR Capture for taking HDR images and 360 Capture for taking 360-degree panorama images in mono or stereo.

According to NVIDIA, Ansel will soon be coming to games such as Tom Clancy’s The Division, The Witness, LawBreakers, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Paragon, No Man’s Sky, and Unreal Tournament.
