NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti Smiles for the Camera

Here are some of the first pictures of an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti graphics card, in the flesh. As predicted, the reference design board reuses the PCB of the GeForce GTX TITAN-X, and its cooler is a silver version of its older sibling. According to an older report, the GTX 980 Ti will be carved out of the 28 nm GM200 silicon, by disabling 2 of its 24 SMM units, resulting in a CUDA core count of 2,816. The card retains its 384-bit GDDR5 memory bus width, but holds 6 GB of memory, half that of the GTX TITAN-X. The card is expected to launch in early June, 2015. NVIDIA's add-in card (AIC) partners will be free to launch custom-design boards with this SKU, so you could hold out for the MSI Lightnings, the EVGA Classifieds, the ASUS Strixes, the Gigabyte G1s, and the likes.

Gigabyte Announces Three New GeForce GTX 960 Graphics Cards

Gigabyte rolled out three new graphics cards based on NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960, which look to be graded by fan count. All three are factory-overclocked. The series begins with the GV-N960IXOC-2GD, a compact model, featuring a single-fan heatsink cooling solution, and clock speeds of 1165/1228/7012 MHz (core/boost/memory), against reference speeds of 1127/1178/7012 MHz. This card also features a light display output configuration, with two DVI, and one each of HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.2 connectors.

Next up, is the GV-N960WF2OC-2GD, featuring a slightly longer PCB, a dual-fan WindForce 2X cooling solution, and a higher factory-overclock of 1216/1279/7012 MHz. This card features a full-spec FlexDisplay configuration, a Gigabyte-exclusive consisting of two DVI, three DisplayPort 1.2, and one HDMI 2.0 connectors. Leading the pack, is the GV-N960G1 GAMING-2GD (GTX 960 G1.Gaming). Featuring the highest clocks on offer, with 1241/1304/7012 MHz, this card features a massive triple-fan WindForce 3X cooling solution, the same one that cools GTX 970 G1.Gaming, which stays silent until a temperature threshold is reached. Also featured here is FlexDisplay.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 960 G1.Gaming Pictured

Here are the first pictures of Gigabyte's GeForce GTX 960 G1.Gaming graphics card. This factory-overclocked card is designed to woo mid-range graphics card buyers with a hefty, high-end looking package. To begin with, Gigabyte deployed its large WindForce 3X cooling solution on this 120W TDP chip, the same one it used on the GTX 970 and GTX 980 G1.Gaming products. This cooler may seem overkill, but Gigabyte may set a temperature-activated fan profile, which keeps the fans off until the GPU hits a temperature threshold, which we imagine will be very high, given this chip's thermals, and the size of this cooler's heatsink.

The GTX 960 G1.Gaming from Gigabyte will also be different from other offerings based on this chip, due to its display I/O. While most other GTX 960 cards will feature two dual-link DVI and one each of HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.2, this card features an I/O that looks identical to Gigabyte's GTX 980 G1.Gaming, with two dual-link DVI, three DisplayPort 1.2, and one HDMI 2.0 connectors. NVIDIA will launch the GeForce GTX 960 on the 22nd of January, 2015. Looks like some stores are already stocked-up.
