More and more GeForce GTX 980 Ti information keeps on coming out as we get closer and closer to its launch. A leaked GPU-Z screenshot has hit the web revealing its reference clock speeds. These values are pulled by the system, not an internal lookup table. The card will have clock speeds of 1000 MHz core, with a maximum GPU boost up to 1076 MHz, while the memory sits at 7012 MHz (GDDR5-effective).
Colorful who we know for their over-the-top GeForce GTX graphics cards has surpassed ASUS, MSI, and Gigabyte in terms of graphics cards shipped worldwide this year according to the latest report from DigiTimes. The report also notes that Colorful could become the second largest graphics card vendor in terms of shipments by the end of the year, next only to Palit who is the leader in terms of shipments.
Benchmarks have hit the web featuring AMD’s upcoming R9 390X, NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 980 Ti and an mysterious unconfirmed GTX 9xx card has also appeared in the benchmark listings! Here we can get a better idea of performance of the GTX Titan X, GTX 980 Ti, and AMD’s Radeon R9 390X. The unconfirmed GTX 9xx card we are guessing could be a GTX 960 Ti or GTX 965.
Well here are the first shots of the reference GeForce GTX 980 Ti. As we expected the reference card uses the same PCB as the GeForce GTX Titan X. The cooler is is silver, much like the GTX 980. The only real difference is of course the GTX 980 Ti naming on the cooler shroud.
Back in February we first reported on this. NVIDIA had disabled overclocking on their GTX 900M series mobile GPUs, this drew outrage from the gaming community. Under this pressure NVIDIA agreed to re-enable overclocking on these GPUs. Well it looks like NVIDIA has changed their mind again, it has reinstalled the overclocking block, or “clock-block” as the community is calling it in its R350 and R352 drivers.
According to the latest leak the upcoming GeForce GTX 980 Ti won’t be a repeat of the GTX 780 Ti as it won’t be faster than the Titan product at the time of launch. The GTX 980 Ti will actually feature 2816 CUDA cores, which is less than the Titan X. This is because NVIDIA will be disabling 2 of the 24 SMM (streaming multiprocessor Maxwell) units on the GM200 silicon.
It looks like AMD is not being shy with giving some free samples away of their top of the line upcoming Fiji graphics cards. One such card arrived at the desk of Johan Andersson, Technical Director on Frostbite at Electronic Arts. He posted a photo of the card on his Twitter of what looks like the flagship R9 390X (if that’s what it will be called).
eSports has grown massively over the past couple of years and game streaming keeps on getting more popular as well. There are many people who make a comfortable living from streaming. How much do they make? Masters degree student Efe Karakus is currently “focusing on human-computer interaction and data mining” and has combined Twitch.tv subscriptions with advertisements and an educated prediction to give the public an insight into how much these streamers really make.
A new report has come out that says we could see NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 980 Ti launch next month at Computex 2015. This report also states that sales of the card will start immediately after the announcement, which means this will not be a paper launch.
We have assumed that AMD’s flagship Fiji graphics card would be called the Radeon R9 390X, but it might not be that at all. The latest rumors say that the top-end Fiji card will not appear within the 300 nomenclature, but will receive a special name, much like NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan.
