ASUS Unveils GTX 980 Ti DirectCU III STRIX at Computex 2015
The GeForce GTX 980 Ti DirectCU III STRIX cooler from ASUS is the next generation offering for their discrete design cards offering preferred cooling execution over the DirectCU II cooler before it. The outline has got an enormous facial elevate with the expansion of three extensive PWM controlled Cooltech fans with 0db innovation that will switch off the fans from dynamic cooling if the card has thermal loads in point of confinement.
In terms of specifications ASUS GeForce GTX 980 Ti DirectCU III STRIX is based on GM200-310-A1 GPU Core featuring 24 SMMs all are arranged in total 6 Graphics Processing Clusters. We can simply compare it with Titan X by disabling 2 SMMs and half the Video memory. This keeps the configurations to 2816 Cuda Cores, 176 texture mapping units and 96 ROPs. The most eye opening part is that GeForce GTX 980 Ti is featuring same numbers of ROPs as available in GTX 970, has better management built for their high-performance core offerings and we won’t see the same situation on the GTX 980 Ti. The card includes a 6 GB GDDR5 VRAM that works along a 384-bit memory interface. The 6 GB GDDR5 VRAM is clocked at 7 GHz and pumps out 336.0 GB/s of bandwidth. Clock speeds for core are not known yet.
