Just as expected, NVIDIA officially announced its new GeForce GTX 980 Ti card today.
The GTX 980 Ti is based on a 28nm GM200-310 GPU and sits a notch below in NVIDIA’s GTX Titan X. It features a total of 2,816 CUDA cores, 176 Texture Mapping Units, 96 ROPs, and a 384-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface with 6GB od video memory. The GTX 980 Ti arrives with a core clock of 1000 MHz, and boost clock of 1076 MHZ, identical to the GTX Titan X.
Like the GTX Titan X, the GTX 980 Ti is also made for 4K gaming. Supporting Microsoft’s next-generation DirectX 12 APIs, the card should be a great alternative to even the more expensive GTX Titan X. As we saw yesterday in leaked benchmarks, the GTX 980 Ti offers performance almost similar to the more expensive card in most games.
The 250W TDP card draws power from 6-pin and 8-pin PCIe power connectors. It offers three DisplayPort 1.2, one HDMI 2.0, and one DVI connectors for display output. The card will be available in both reference and custom designs from NVIDIA partners with a starting price of $649.99.
