NVIDIA has introduced graphics card GeForce GTX 980 Ti
In upcoming Computex exhibition NVIDIA introduced the high-end graphics processor called GeForce GTX 980. The GeForce GTX 980 Ti based on GM200 processor, the same type as on the NVIDIA’s most powerful GTX Titan X processor. The GTX 980 Ti has all advantages of GPU devices, it uses 6GB memory and has priced around $649.
GeForce GTX 980 Ti uses new graphics board based on a version of the GM200 graphics processor with a different configuration of execution units. The Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan X graphics card features the GM200-400 graphics chip and has almost the same parameters as GM200-310.
The GTX 980 Ti produced with 2816 CUDA cores and 176 texture units versus the 3072 CUDA cores and 192 texture units of the Titan X and the ROP count is confirmed to be 96. In other cases, they are very similar GTX TITAN X.
Basic GPU frequency is set at 1000 MHz with an average acceleration up to 1076 MHz.
6GB of GDDR5 running at 7GHz attached to a 384-bit bus for 336 GB/sec of memory bandwidth is more than enough for running games.
The GeForce GTX 980 Ti supports up to 4-Way SLI, and because the TDP of the card is only 250 watts, one6-pin and one 8-pin supplemental PCI Express feeds are all that are required to power the card.
If the reference cooler or port loadout doesn’t appeal, thankfully-unlike with the Titan X-Nvidia is allowing partners to create their own custom designs.
Expect the likes of the excellent Asus Strix and MSI Twin Frozr Coolers to make an appearance on the 980 Ti sooner rather than later.GeForce GTX 980 Ti has four display outputs: DVI-I, HDMI 2.0 and three DisplayPorts 1.2.
The first results of capacity of GeForce GTX 980 Ti less on 2-4 per cent that GeForce GTX TITAN X till 4k Screen resolution. Furthermore, GeForce GTX 980 17-28 per cent faster with increasing screen resolution.
Price of GeForce GTX 980 Ti is about $649 for US market. It is enough aggressive price in comparison of $999for GeForce GTX TITAN X. At the same time with announcing of GeForce GTX 980 Ti producer has been decreased price for GeForce GTX 980. The price of GM204 is around $499, instead $549.
The GTX 980 Ti performs better than any other GPU besides the Titan X, but AMD’s Fiji with HBM should be announced within the month. There is no details on the memory configuration for AMD’s Fiji parts, and it’s possible they’ll stay at 4GB with HBM, but as the saying goes: The proof is in the eating of the pudding.Assuming you didn’t jump on Titan X when it launched, waiting another few weeks to see where AMD’s cards fall won’t hurt.
It may end up faster than 980 Ti at a better price, it may be faster with a higher price, or it could end up slower but with a better price. Whatever happens, we can expect Nvidia to respond appropriately. Unless you absolutely have to upgrade right now, in which case the 980 Ti looks primed for the future. But not everyone can afford such a graphics card. You can buy a used video card on JiJi.ng, so you buy from real people and save money.
