It’s packed to the rim.
Nvidia has announced its new flagship graphics card; continuing with the GTX 9xx naming series, the new card will be called the GTX 880Ti, and it will come with a staggering 6GB of on board GDDR5 memory. The 980Ti has a 336GB/s maximum bandwidth. Its display outputs are 1x HDMI, 1x DVI, and 3x DP, while it has two power connectors arranged as 1x 6pin and 1x 8pin. It will command a pretty penny too, as the entry price for this card is $650.
Nvidia claims that the GTX 980Ti will deliver the same kind of performance that Nvidia’s own, higher priced Titan X card does, at a far lower price; to sweeten the pot, they will also be offering a free copy of Batman: Arkham Knight to everybody who buys the card (the game, along with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, is also available for free with other Nvidia GPUs).
“This is, by all rights, our flagship GeForce GTX GPU, built on the GM 200 chip,” Nvidia said, “and we designed it for a lot of the top-end PC features, such as 4K, VR, and G-Sync. These are the things that this card excels at.”
The introduction of this card means that the original 980 is no longer the highest end card of the range; Nvidia has dropped its price to $500.
