OverclockersUK: reference GeForce GTX 980/970 with 4GB, 8GB models also planned

Published: Sep 3rd 2014, 13:02 GMT

We are very close to GeForce GTX 900 series announcement. Yet the amount of leaks is not very overwhelming.

Thankfully, Gibbo from OverclockersUK spilled some beans about GTX 980 and GTX 970. According to him NVIDIA is planning 4GB reference models and also 8GB with custom cooling solutions ‘at later date’. Of course, we also heard about 8GB models. In fact flagship cards with doubled memory are nothing surprising. According to OCUK’s and our information GTX 980 and GTX 970 with 8GB models are expected somewhere between November and December.

Gibbo did not comment on GM204 performance, but he did mention that GTX 980 replaces GTX 780, not GTX 780 Ti.


980 / 970 4GB reference cards with 8GB coming at a later date with custom coolers. Can’t say any more but don’t expect a huge leap in performance over current single GPU stuff.


They replace 780, not 780Ti.

Performance wise, my lips are sealed on how it compares to 780Ti, but of course 980 is quicker than 780 for sure!

Expect more leaks later this week.
