NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti Final Configuration Confirmed

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.

As we expected that card will also have 176 texture units. The card will have half the memory (6GB) of the Titan X and that memory will run across the same 384-bit interface. The clock speeds will be a bit lower than the Titan X at 1000/1076 Mhz compared to the 1000/1089 MHz of Titan X. 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. This means that one of the GPC (Graphics Processing Cluster) has been cut in half.

Hardware battle also released some preliminary benchmarks, as you can see performance is very close to the Titan X. (Click for larger images)
