If you happened to want to get a GeForce GTX Titan X you only have one choice, the reference design from NVIDIA. NVIDIA did not allow add-in board (AIB) partners to modify the card with a custom PCB or a different cooler. Well it looks like this will change with the GeForce GTX 980 Ti, with NVIDIA apparently green-lighting custom versions of the card.
Now the cool part is that this kit comes to you in a hard-type suitcase! Definitely a great way to showoff a premium product like this. Of course it has a premium price of $2999, but you do get a free Acer 27-inch G-Sync monitor.
A few people have been taking a closer look at the 15.3 beta version of AMD’s Catalyst driver. They have discovered new entries that point to the upcoming Radeon Rx 300 series of graphics cards. And it looks just as we expected, most of the 300 series will be rebrands of older products.
Looks like Zotac is showing up to the GTX 960 4 GB party with not one but two different graphics cards. The first card is their normal GTX 960 4 GB model (ZT-90308-10M), which does feature a minor overclock of 1177 MHz core with 1240 MHz boost (vs. reference clocks of 1126/1178 MHz).
Inno3D has just announced their iChill GeForce GTX 980 and GTX 970 Black Series Accelero Hybrid S models. These cards use an integrated air and liquid cooling solution that the company says has a 200% better cooling performance and is 9 times quieter than the stock cooler. It is also the first LCS to have an integrated active fan specifically designed to cool RAM and VR.
According to a report from vBulletin Solutions it has not been more or less confirmed that AMD plans to do the exact same thing with the upcoming Radeon R300 series. The flagship cards will be equipped with the new GPU “Fiji” while everything else will be a rebrand. So we will see everything from Hawaii to Tonga down to Bonaire.
We have some more news on AMD’s upcoming R300 series. The Radeon R9 380X and R9 380 which will be set to compete with NVIDIA’s GTX 980 and GTX 970 will be based on a new silicon called “Grenada”. This silicon is built on the 28 nm process and will be a refined version of “Hawaii” much like “Curacao” was to “Pitcarin” in the previous generation.
It looks like we could see an AMD Radeon 300 Series launch very soon! In response to a question asked on its Facebook whether their next-generation Radeon R300 series will come out before the GTA V PC launch (March), AMD actually responded saying, “We’re still putting finishing touches to the 300 series, to make sure they live up to expectation. Can’t wait to reveal them though. We’re pretty excited.”
To celebrate the grand milestone of selling over 100 million NVIDIA GPU based graphics cards from the moment MSI started to manufacture these until 2015, MSI has prepared a special limited edition of its recently launched GTX 960 GAMING and much awarded GTX 970 GAMING models with a striking NVIDIA green color scheme.
While we still do not know a whole lot about AMD’s Radeon R300 series, the first rumors about the Radeon R400 series have already started to appear. According to a report by SweClockers the Radeon R400 series, expected in 2016, will be codenamed Arctic Islands. For those who have not been following AMD over the […]
