After weeks of leaks NVIDIA has officially announced the GeForce GTX 980 Ti graphics card! The card is positioned to sit below the GeForce GTX Titan X in NVIDIA’s graphics card stack. It has been made to handle 4K Ultra HD resolution. The card is based based off of NVIDIA’s 28nm GM200 silicon and features 2816 CUDA cores, 176 TMUs, 96 ROPs, and a 384-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, holding 6 GB of memory.
Over the past few weeks we have been unsure if AMD’s new Radeon flagship card will be called the R9 390X, or something different completely. According to the latest report by Expreview, the Radeon flagship will be called the Radeon Fury.
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.
When the GeForce GTX Titan X was released NVIDIA did not allow its AIC (add-in card) partners from coming up with custom-designed versions. It seems that Zotac has found a way around this either by using a loophole that allows partners to use “factory fitted water blocks” or NVIDIA could be loosening its custom-design policy with the launch of the GTX 980 Ti coming next week. In any case this bring us to Zotac’s GeForce GTX Titan X ArcticStorm Edition.
Another leaked photo of AMD’s upcoming flagship graphics card codenamed “Fiji-XT” has hit the web. The photo once again confirms the card small length. The smaller length is because AMD is using a factory-fitted AIO liquid cooling system and the Fiji-XT package is much smaller than that of Hawaii, because of the implementation of HBM.
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).
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.
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).
