NVIDIA will release 900 Series Graphics Cards equipped with Maxwell Second Generation architecture this month. We all know that Nvidia always release the High-End card first from any series, So Gtx 980 and Gtx 970 both are at first in the line and would be released on 19th September. With the release date coming closer, the heat of exposures is getting more flames. Last night the latest leaked comes from foreign media in which they show the Specifications and some pictures of Gtx 970.
NVIDIA GTX 970 Specifications Exposed
We can see that the Nvidia reference version Graphic card is looking very large in size, we can say High-End Graphic card but when we see the Custom Cooling Version Graphic card (Below the Post) the PCB is looking very short, at backside the PCB is packed with backplate.
This Reference wonderful design was first appeared on the GTX 670, after emerging now flattering, NVIDIA really do not know why it is so popular.
In terms of Specifications the The Gtx 970 would be equipped with 4GB Gddr5 256-Bit memory interface clocked at 1753 MHz (7.00 GHz Effective) which pumps out 224.4 GB/s bandwidth. The core clock is maintained at 1051 MHz and 1178 MHz boost clock. GM204 Core on Gtx 970 fuses 1664 CUDA Cores, 32 ROPs and 138 TMUs. From the first generation Maxwell core architecture, we learned that a Maxwell SMM unit has 128 cores compared to 192 on the current generation Kepler SMX units. The TMU count is a bit off since the Maxwell core architecture holds 8 TMUs per SMX so we were supposed to see 104 TMUs in total.
With the low-end Core i3-4130, 3DMark 11 Score of Gtx 970 reaches at X3963, We can compare this Score with the Public version of AMD R9 290.
In addition, on Gtx 970 we can see two six-pin auxiliary power connector (maximum 225W power supply capacity) , and according to our news, GTX 980/970 power consumption will not exceed 190W, energy efficiency is very high.
Out put interference is not visible, but reportedly will support HDMI 2.0.
