Nvidia Launches GeForce GTX 980 Ti GPU: 4K Gaming Support And Improved VR Optics

As expected and rumored earlier, Nvidia has officially launched its newest high-end Geforce graphics card, the Geforce GTX 980 Ti.

Based on a version of the 28nm GM200 GPU, earlier seen in the GTX Titan X graphics card, the Geforce GTX 980 Ti packs 22 enabled SMM units for a total of 2816 CUDA cores and 176 texture units (TMUs).

While the number of CUDA cores was cut down and the amount of memory was cut down to 6GB, the number of ROPs, amount of L3 cache and the memory interface remained the same as on the Titan X, so the Geforce GTX 980 Ti packs 96 ROPs, 3MB of L3 cache and 6GB of memory paired up with a 384-bit memory interface.

The new Geforce GTX 980 Ti also has the same 250W TDP and needs 8+6-pin PCI-Express power connectors as well as uses a pretty similar reference blower style fan, just with a slightly different color scheme. It also comes without the backplate. With these specifications, the Geforce GTX 980 Ti fits snugly between the GM204 based GTX 980 and the Titan X.

The new Geforce GTX 980 Ti also comes with three DisplayPort, single HDMI and single DVI display output configuration and supports 4-way SLI.

The Geforce GTX 980 Ti also shares the same reference clocks as the GTX Titan X, working at 1000MHz base GPU and 1074MHz GPU Boost clocks while memory ended up clocked at reference 7.0GHz.
