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).
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.
We have assumed that AMD’s flagship Fiji graphics card would be called the Radeon R9 390X, but it might not be that at all. The latest rumors say that the top-end Fiji card will not appear within the 300 nomenclature, but will receive a special name, much like NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan.
In an attempt to bring more attention to the mid-range Zotac tends to over-package some of their products. This is true with their new GTX 960 Gamer Force TOP-X graphics card, which has a large triple fan cooling solution complete with a metal backplate that holds two 60 mm fans as well.
Well that did not take long at all! AMD just announced the first cards in its new R9 300 series, but as we pointed out these were all rebrands of current cards, so nothing new. Now two new teaser photos have appeared showing the liquid cooled AMD R9 390X!
KFA2 has just announced a new special edition of its GeForce GTX 980 HOF graphics card that has been designed by professional overclocker 8Pack. This card will be one of the highest clock GTX 980’s out of the box with a core clock of 1304 MHz and GPU boost up to 1440 MHz.
HP has just sent out a press release highlighting their back to school PC systems. This in itself was not all that exciting, but what was, was that the AMD R9 380 was listed as an option with the HP ENVY Phoenix Tower.
AMD has gone ahead and cut the price of their Radeon R9 285 graphics card as the Spring PC upgrade season heats up. This is in a hope to get gamers to choose the R9 285 over NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 960. The card first launched with a MSRP of $249, which has not been brought down to $200 officially.
