Earlier this week we let you know the official clock speeds of the GeForce GTX 980 Ti, and now we have the final configuration of the card thanks to the guys over at Hardware Battle. The biggest news is that the card will have 96 ROPs, this was the remaining information that was not available. This is the same ROP count as the GeForce GTX Titan X, that is why both cards come so close in gaming benchmarks.
It looks like NVIDIA will be officially launching the GeForce GTX 980 Ti graphics card on June 2nd at Computex 2015. According to the below image NVIDIA will be holding an event to launch the GTX 980 Ti and it will be streamed live to the public via Twitch.
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).
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.
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.
Over the weekend Amazon had two new listings on their new products page, one was for the NVIDIA SHIELD Console and the second was for a Pro version of it. The NVIDIA SHIELD console is nothing new and was announced at GDC back in March. We were unaware of a “Pro” version though and it looks like Amazon let the cat out of the bag.
A foundry partner is always important for companies like NVIDIA. TSMC has always given priority to Apple for orders, but it looks like NVIDIA will still be retaining the company as their “primary” foundry partner. NVIDIA also has Samsung as a foundry partner, but it remains unclear which products will be fabricated by TSMC and which ones by Samsung.
