Last week we reported that NVIDIA will be releasing a GeForce GTX 980 Ti graphics card that will feature 3072 CUDA cores, come with a 10% higher clock than the GeForce GTX Titan X and have 6GB of VRAM. Originally it was thought that the card would be released around summer, but it looks like it will be pushed back till after summer.
NVIDIA’s current Shield portable console is 2 years old now and might be due for an update very soon. New Listings for a device described as the NVIDIA Shield Portable P2523 has appeared at both the Bluetooth and WiFi certification websites.
This week on our Weekly Tech Podcast we talk about information on upcoming graphics cards from both NVIDIA and AMD, new Intel Broadwell processors, the possibility of three new iPhone’s coming and much more!
It looks like NVIDIA is prepping yet another graphics card based on its Maxwell architecture. This time it will be the GeForce GTX 980 Ti, which will feature the full GM200 silicon. According to reports this will not be a cut-down version of the chip either and the card will feature the full 3072 CUDA cores.
Yesterday and today every graphics card maker announced their GeForce GTX Titan X graphics cards. Almost all of them have the same reference design on them. EVGA was one company that not only announced a a Titan X with the reference cooler, but also one with a custom full-cover waterblock installed. This is their GeForce GTX TITAN X HydroCopper.
Well it is finally official! NVIDIA has formally launched its GeForce GTX Titan X flagship graphics card at it s own GPU Technology conference today. While we knew most of the specifications from previous leaks, the card is based of the new Maxwell GM200 silicon. The Titan X will have 3072 CUDA cores, 192 TMUs, 96 ROPs, and a 384-bit GDDR5 memory interface that holds 12 GB of memory.
Well just before the weekend Canadian music producer Deadmau5 published a picture on his Instagram account showing off not one, but two NVIDIA Quadro M6000 graphics cards in a system which is used to run his tour visuals. While not the most reliable source for a graphics card leak, take it for what its worth. We are assuming NVIDIA provided Deadmau5 with these cards without any NDA agreement or restrictions for his tour.
The architecture block-diagram for NVIDIA’s GM200 silicon has been leaked to the web. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X will be making full use of the GM200 silicon which it is based off of. The GM200 will feature six Graphics Processing Clusters (GPCs) each will hold 4 SMMs. So that gives the full processor 24 SMMs with a total of 3072 CUDA cores based on the Maxwell architecture.
