With NVIDIA’s new second-generation Maxwell-based graphics cards out for a few weeks we were waiting for the insane overclocks and benchmarks scores and now we have a world record 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme score by a heavily overclocked GeForce GTX 980.
Don’t get your hopes up NVIDIA is not coming out with an AIO cooling version of their GeForce GTX 980 graphics card. Japanese system builder Sycom decided to take matters into their own hands and have cut a corner out of the shroud on a reference GeForce GTX 980, removed the heatsink and replaced it with the Asetek 740GN water cooling unit.
We had mentioned that NVIDIA could be possibly be working on a higher-end graphics card in the 900 series after the GTX 980. Word that MSI was holding off on releasing the GTX 980 Lightning card backed up the rumors of a higher-end card. Well it looks like we do have some leaked details on NVIDIA’s GM200 GPU which these high-end cards will be based off of!
If you have a multi-GPU setup using NVIDIA cards you know an eyesore can be the SLI bridges. Well for those who want to clean those up and also add some bling to their cases NVIDIA has announced LED SLI bridges. These will be available exclusively through the NVIDIA Store.
With the launch of their GeForce GTX 980 and GeForce GTX 970 NVIDIA has discontinued three of their top-selling graphics cards the GeForce GTX 780 Ti, GeForce GTX 780, and GeForce GTX 770. At $549 the GeForce GTX 980 takes over the spot of the GeForce GTX 780 Ti / 780 and it is cheaper to make.
At NVIDIA’s Game24 event the company has launched its next-generation GeForce GTX 900 series. This series is currently made up of the flagship GeForce GTX 980 and followed by the GeForce GTX 970. Both cards are based on NVIDIA’s GM204 “Maxwell” silicon.
Well it looks like someone let the cat out of the bag early! NVIDIA’s complete press deck on the GeForce GTX 980, GeForce GTX 970 and Maxwell GPU architecture has been leaked! This post includes official NVIDIA press slides, performance charts and photos!
The first performance review of NVIDIA’s upcoming GeForce GTX 980 and GeForce 970 graphics cards was published. It looks like it was a mistake as the review was soon taken down, but we were able to grab most of the slides to show you performance comparisons between NVIDIA’s new GM204 silicon, the older GK110 and AMD’s Hawaii.
It looks like many non-reference GeForce GTX 980 graphics cards are going to be revealed today. We have already seen one from Colorful and another from ASUS, now we have one from Inno3d. They have revealed their iChill GTX 980.
Along with the GeForce GTX 970 Strix, ASUS will also be releasing a GeForce GTX 980 Strix graphics card as well. We do not have a whole lot of information on the card itself and for the reason we do not expect it to be launched on September 19th.
