The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti will be launched in two days. The specifications of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti are already confirmed. The GPU is based on Maxwell GM200-310 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. While it is reputed that the world of fond memories and ROPs may be influenced by the disabled SMMs, much the same as the GTX 970, NVIDIA has better management fabricated for their superior Core offerings and we won’t see the same circumstance on the GTX 980 Ti. The card highlight a 6 GB GDDR5 VRAM that works along a 384-bit memory interface.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti Gaming Performance Revealed

We have known that the 980 Ti was coming for quite some time now. Yield theory also dictated that it would be a cut GM200 core, so the only thing that actually remained to be answered was the pricing. It looks like Nvidia is following its core competency when it comes to pricing and marking the card slightly above its apparent fair value. Since the card houses a GM200 core, it was going to be priced above the GTX 980 but since it was cut, it had to be significantly less than the GTX Titan X price tag. Setting an MSRP of $799 and targeting the $800 price point means that Nvidia will be generating significant revenues in the long run. All eyes would be now on AMD for the Fiji launch but with 4GB of vRAM (albeit HBM), something that is a tad on the sparse side in today’s era, we appear to be looking for a miracle.

Clock speeds for the GeForce GTX 980 Ti are very amazing which stay at the same levels of the Titan X. The base frequency is situated at 1000 MHz, while the Turbo boost is reaching to 1076 MHz, which is about 14 MHz slower than the X. The memory frequency is kept up at 7 GHz for the reference cards.

Today we have the Gaming benchmarks of GeForce GTX 980 Ti which have been surfaced now with the courtesy of Zol. Com. Cn from their review, which has been published earlier. Below we can see the gaming benchmarks, and we have to admit that GeForce GTX 980 Ti is a leap after Geforce GTX 780 Ti and Geforce GTX 680 released. Infact GeForce GTX 980 Ti would be the first card to cross 30FPS mark in Crysis 3 on  2560×1600 resolution. At the moment we don’t have the Gaming benchmark at 4K resolution.

Finally, lets come to the core part of this article. Folks over Zol.com.cn have tested lots Graphics power hungry titles in order to judge the full potential of GeForce GTX 980 Ti. It is worth pointing out that the GTX 980 Ti has 96 ROPs just like the TITAN X – so you are getting amazing bang for the buck. The card’s expected MSRP is $649 (with tax adjusted pricing upto $799 in some regions of the world) which is an impressive deal for the graphical horsepower you are getting.
