NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti confirmed to feature 6GB memory

Published: 30th Apr 2015, 11:33 GMT

Today are going to talk about GeForce GTX 980 Ti.

While everyone is waiting for Radeon 300 series, NVIDIA is busy developing yet another flagship card that will target yet unreleased Fiji-based Radeon graphics cards.

Some of you might have noticed that we didn’t cover recent GTX 980 Ti rumors. It was for two reasons: nothing was confirmed (not even the name of the card) and secondly almost everything that was posted was based on speculation. This post however, is based solely on our new information provided by credible source (thanks Jen-Hsun!).

GeForce GTX 980 Ti with GM200-310 GPU

First of all, we can confirm that the next installment in GeForce 900 series is codenamed GTX 980 Ti. NVIDIA took the same path as with TITAN BLACK and GTX 780 Ti. GTX TITAN X will continue to offer maximum memory capacity (12GB), while GeForce GTX 980 Ti just a half of this enormous frame buffer (6GB).

Both cards share the same board model and probably the same reference cooler. The difference is, GTX 980 Ti will be available with custom cooling solutions (unlike TITAN X, although there are few exceptions).

We are aware of few GTX 980 Ti models already. We can tell you to expect a full variety of coolers: reference, custom-air-cooled, watercooled and hybrids.

We can also confirm that GTX 980 Ti will have five display outputs: three DisplayPorts, HDMI and DVI-I, so same as TITAN X. We were unable to confirm the existence of ‘metal enhanced edition’, so I wouldn’t probably pay too much attention to this rumor.

What still remains unconfirmed are the specifications. Although everyone is confident GTX 980 Ti has full GM200 silicon, we cannot confirm this to you just yet. We can however confirm, that GeForce GTX 980 Ti will sport GM200-310 GPU. How does it differ from GM200-400? We don’t know (yet).

To sum up:

  • cheaper GM200-based graphics card is codenamed GeForce GTX 980 Ti;
  • GeForce GTX 980 Ti has GM200-310 GPU
  • GeForce GTX 980 Ti has 6GB of GDDR5 memory;
  • GeForce GTX 980 Ti will be available with custom cooling solutions;
  • GeForce GTX 980 Ti has 5 display outputs: 3xDP, HDMI, DVI-I

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti is expected to arrive in few weeks. Stay tuned for more.
