GTX 980Ti Smiles for the Camera - Release imiment!

Nvidia shows off the TITAN X at GDC

GTX 980Ti Smiles for the Camera

 

The specifications and some performance numbers may have been leaked for the GTX 980Ti earlier this week, but until now we have been unable to see Nvidia's newest GPU, thank you Videocardz for the leak.

From what we have seen earlier this week regarding this GPUs specification, Nvidia's GTX 980Ti looks like it will make their Titan X almost redundant, with 6GB of DDR5 VRAM and only 1 less SMX unit than the Titan X (256 less CUDA cores) it will only have a minimal difference in performance under most situations.

From what we can see in the pictures above, this GPU looks exactly like the offspring of a GTX 980 and a Titan X. It looks like it has the same IO, it has pretty much the same cooler as the GTX 980 (with Ti on the end) and lacks the full cover backplate of the GTX 980 (just like the Titan X).

On the PCB side, this GPU looks very similar to the GTX Titan X, which is should seeing as it is based on the same GPU core.  

With leaks like these coming out from multiple sources we can be almost certain that the GTX 980Ti launch is imminent, meaning that Nvidia will have launched a whole new generation of GPUs before AMD releases any. 

 

You can join the discussion on Nvidia's GTX 980Ti on the OC3D Forums. 

 

 

The GTX 980Ti has been pictured. Is its release imminent?http://www.overclock3d.net/articles/gpu_displays/gtx_980ti_smiles_for_the_camera/1

Honestly NVIDIA if you are going to make end users pay 800$+ for a video card give it a backplate, for gods sake!Quote

I look at this and think that would look nice in my case, then I think for the games I play now it wouldn't even break a sweat to runQuote

This !!!

It would cost Nvidia maybe $1 per GPU to add a backplate, If people are adding after market EVGA Titan X backplates to their Titan X's and seeing a 1-2'c drop in temps then I do not see why Nvidia didn't add backplates to the Titan X and 980 Ti, Really makes them looks a lot neater.Quote

If NVidia were to add backplates to their cards I hope they do better than the ones on the 980 as they were very cheap and nasty.

Even the thermal pads on the 980 are crap compared to the ones used on the Titan X.Quote
