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.
Colorful, who is one of NVIDIA’s largest AIB partners in the Chinese market have just unveiled their iGame GeForce GTX 980. This is not your typical reference GeForce GTX 980 card like we have seen over the past week, this is the first non-reference card in terms of cooling and PCB design!
The guys over at VideoCardz have got their hands on what looks to be the official press shots of both the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 and GeForce 970 reference cards! These photos show not only the card, but a break down of the cooler. So I’ll stop talking and let you feast your eyes on both these cards!
Ahead of the September 19th launch real pictures of the MSI GeForce GTX 970 Gaming graphics card have surfaced. Before MSI only teased renderings of the new card. These photos confirm that the card will debut with MSI’s new TwinFrozr V cooling solution.
As we get closer to the launch of NVIDIA’s 900 series cards more and more information is leaking out. Courtesy of our friends over at VideoCardz we have the final specifications on the GeForce GTX 980 and quite a lot of information on the GM204 processor. Let’s dive in!
It looks like NVIDIA will be pricing their upcoming GeForce GTX 900 series cards higher than we thought. The GeForce GTX 980 is expect to start at $599, which is nearly the same price as the GeForce GTX 780 Ti. NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 970 is said to be launching at $399, which puts it close to the GTX 780.
