It has finally been confirmed that NVIDIA will be launching a new graphics card, which will be the GeForce GTX 950, not the GTX 950 Ti. The card will be based off the GM206-250 GPU, which is likely a cut-down version of the GM206-300 processor that is used in the GTX 960.
AMD’s Radeon R9 Fury will be the companies second graphics cards based on the 28nm Fiji silicon. The card has been rumored to be launching in mid-July, but the specifications have been leaked online. AMD will enable 56 of the 64 compute units on the GPU, which will give it 3584 stream processors and 224 TMUs. We assume AMD will not change the ROP count so it will remain at 64. The memory will likely remain untouched at 4 GB of HBM.
After many reviews and feedback from users the biggest issue with AMD’s brand new Radeon R9 Fury X was the noisy pump-block. This pump block design has a very high-pitched whine that many users reported. It looks like AMD has gone and already revised the pump-block design on the card.
Zotac’s GeForce GTX 980 Ti AMP Extreme (model: ZT-90505-10P) has just started selling.

This will be EVGA’s fastest GTX 980 Ti card up until the point the Kingpin Edition starts selling.
