NVIDIA today announces the GeForce GTX 950 graphics card, which is the companies latest entry-level graphics card that is targeted at sub-$500 gaming PC builds. The card is designed to offer good gaming at 1600 x 900 and 1920 x 1080 (moderate-high details) resolutions. The GTX 950 will officially succeed the GTX 750 Ti and will be priced at $159.99.
We keep on getting closer and closer to the supposed NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950 launch, which is said to be around mid-August. With that we have another leak of a GTX 950 card, this one comes from PNY.
The possible specifications of NVIDIA’s upcoming entry-level GeForce GTX 950 have been listed online. This card has been designed to succeed the GeForce GTX 750 Ti and will compete with the Radeon R7 370. It will be based on the same GM206 silicon that powers the GeForce GTX 960, but it will have a quarter of its CUDA cores disabled.
Over the past couple of years Zotac has really distinguished themselves as a producer of high-end NVIDIA-based graphics cards. They offer some of the highest-clocked and best looking cards available. For those who did not jump on NVIDIA’s Titan X when it was first released now you have the choice of the GeForce GTX 980 Ti, which offers similar performance, will half the VRAM. Since the card has been out for a little while now we have seen many custom designs and today we will be taking a look at one such card from Zotac. On the test bench today is their GeForce GTX 980 Ti AMP! (ZT-90503-10P) graphics card. This card comes with a factory overclock of 1051 MHz base and 1140 MHz GPU Boost. On top of that this is one of the more sleek cards we have reviewed lately with its triple-fan carbon-fiber cooling solution and stylish backplate. Let’s see what this card is all about!
ASUS’s STRIX Series started with AMD’s R9 280 series and NVIDIA’s GTX 780. From there the series has branched out to gaming peripherals, many of which we have also reviewed. STRIX has become ASUS’s mainstream gaming line behind their higher-end republic of gamers line. So when it comes to graphics card STRIX has effectively replaced the DirectCU line. While the cards still make use of variations of the DirectCU cooler, the marketing has changed to STRIX, which we feel is better anyways. That brings us to the card we are reviewing today, the STRIX GeForce GTX 970. The card features a nice factory overclock of 1114 MHz core and 1253 MHz GPU Boost, ASUS’s DirectCU II cooling with 0dB fan technology, which means the card will only run once it reaches a certain temperature threshold, a 6-phase DIGI+VRM design with Super Alloy Power and much more! Let’s see what this card can do!
After weeks of leaks NVIDIA has officially announced the GeForce GTX 980 Ti graphics card! The card is positioned to sit below the GeForce GTX Titan X in NVIDIA’s graphics card stack. It has been made to handle 4K Ultra HD resolution. The card is based based off of NVIDIA’s 28nm GM200 silicon and features 2816 CUDA cores, 176 TMUs, 96 ROPs, and a 384-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, holding 6 GB of memory.
Earlier this week we let you know the official clock speeds of the GeForce GTX 980 Ti, and now we have the final configuration of the card thanks to the guys over at Hardware Battle. The biggest news is that the card will have 96 ROPs, this was the remaining information that was not available. This is the same ROP count as the GeForce GTX Titan X, that is why both cards come so close in gaming benchmarks.
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 been talking a lot about NVIDIA’s upcoming GeForce GTX 980 Ti graphics card. While everything posted over the past couple of weeks has been rumors, everything in this post comes from a credible source and can be considered confirmed.
AMD is getting closer to launching their Radeon R300 Series and NVIDIA is not going to sit on the sidelines. According to the latest report from Sweclockers NVIDIA already has their new GeForce GTX 980 Ti ready for launch, but they don’t want to release it yet. Sweclockers has a pretty impressive track record when it comes to NVIDIA rumors, so it is likely that this is true.
