If you’ve been on the verge of a GPU upgrade, chances are you’ve been following our past coverage regarding all sorts of speculation surrounding the Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Ti. Turns out, we finally have more details to share on the unannounced graphics card.
Promotional screenshots from EVGA are also making their rounds around the internet, each of which prominently feature different variants of the card as well as their respective packaging. Each of these screenshots can be seen below (click to enlarge).
A GPU-Z screengrab of the Nvidia GTX 980 Ti along with a series of benchmarks involving the GPU have been revealed by HardwareBattle. The information is in-line with what we have been speculating in the past.
Based on HardwareBattle’s data, the GeForce GTX 980 Ti has 2816 CUDA cores and 6GB GDDR5 Hynix memory across a 384-bit interface. The card is a new part in the GM200 family, given its DeviceID of 17C8. As expected, the ROP count is at 96 and the card features 176 texture units. The base/boost clocks are at 1000/1076 MHz, respectively. Meanwhile, the default memory clock is at 1753 MHz, although it should likely go up to 1900 or 2000 MHz, depending on the mileage of the sample.
Hardwarebattle has posted 3DMark benchmarks, putting the GTX 980 Ti up against a series of cards from both Nvidia and AMD (click to enlarge).
Additionally, the site has also provided gaming benchmarks, using games like GTA V and Assassin’s Creed Unity (click to enlarge).
Compared to the Nvidia GTX Titan X, the GTX 980 Ti is clocked lower (1000/1076 vs 1000/1089 MHz), although the memory clock remains the same (7 GHz). Based on the above charts, the GTX 980 Ti offers performance in the same ballpark as the GTX Titan X. Although, it’s worth mentioning that the benchmarks were carried out at a resolution of 1080p. The gap in performance may well be wider at higher resolutions.
The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti is expected to hit store shelves during the first week of June. TDP and pricing are still unknown, although given the hardware specifications, the card is likely to be sold for $700. Stay tuned for further updates as well as an official confirmation as they become available.
