NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti Clock Speeds Revealed

NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce GTX 980 Ti graphics card is shaping up to be the "almost Titan-X for two-thirds its price" product the company wants, out in the market. A leaked GPU-Z screenshot of the card by Korean tech-publication HardwareBattle (the same site that broke the card's core config,) reveals its reference clock speeds. All the values displayed by GPU-Z 0.8.2 in the screenshot are pulled from the system, and not an internal lookup table (all the LUT-based values are grayed out, because version 0.8.2 lacks those values for the GTX 980 Ti). The card offers clock speeds that are similar to those of the GTX Titan-X. The core is clocked at 1000 MHz, with a maximum GPU Boost frequency of 1076 MHz (1089 MHz on the GTX Titan-X), while the memory ticks at 7012 MHz (GDDR5-effective).

From our older article, it's known that the GTX 980 Ti will feature a lower CUDA core count, at 2,816 cores, compared to 3,072 on the GTX Titan-X. The TMU count is proportionately lower, at 176. The ROP count is a bigger mystery than Nessie. The card features 6 GB of GDDR5 memory, across a 384-bit wide memory interface. While the reference board design is something that's beginning to look dated, NVIDIA will allow its AIC (add-in card) partners to come up with custom-design boards factory-overclocked to Kingdom come, from day-one. The GeForce GTX 980 Ti is expected to be launched on the sidelines of Computex 2015, in the first week of June.

Is it just me or is NVIDIA desperately trying to steer off attention from Radeon R9-390 ? Does anyone even cares about 980Ti at the moment? Especially with R9-390 being right around the corner...

so if your right the gtx 980 ti will be priced between 650-750 dollars making it a very logical choice for people who want a slightly cut down version of the Titan X.

Well I do...I care about both actually, since I am at my planned 2 year upgrade point (or will be in 2 months) on my 780.

I care. I will wait to see what the R9 390x brings and at what price before choosing. We should know in June where both cards stand. This is interesting stuff for anyone that has been waiting for an upgrade.

Oh yes! Any major release cycle brings excitement and anticipation. It also brings out the various hardcore fanboys on all sides and ends up turning into a slamfest many times.

I am not a fan boy of either side, but have had better experiences with Nvidia cards and have had very bad experience with AMD's cards. but hold no grudges towards either sides.


But either way from what iv seen some games dont like AMD graphics cards that much

No,....

The GTX 980 Ti definitely has my interest as does the R9 390. I'm not saying I will buy either but they both have my interest.

This is just business as usual and par for the course.

Same here, I hold no grudges towards either company and buy products from both companies. However, in my case I have probably had more problems with nVidia cards. This is due to the eVGA 8800GS which I had to RMA about three of four times before it finally died some time ago. Then I just gave up on it. That was probably more of an eVGA issue than anything else though.

Clocks start out pretty low considering, but then again they don't want to start higher than Titan X or else they risk overshadowing it so it makes sense. I am still beyond curious how much control and overclocking the card will have because that will determine how great it really is.

I don't know anything about using cards for work and I'm aware that the Titan X isn't as good for some types of work as the last Titans due to compute but I have seen a few people that seem to know say that it still has it's uses in some types of work due to the 12 GB VRAM. They're going for around $1,050 so that makes me wonder about the price of the 980 Ti and could be a reason that Nvidia would not want for it to beat a Titan X but we'll see soon. According to the rumors samples have been sent to reviewers so I would not be surprised to see the review pop up here when the 980 Ti is revealed first week of June.

Yes, I have heard that as well as rendering is very reliant on high amounts of VRAM. However, it is pretty apparent the Titan X is not designed with professional work in mind less so than last round (Plus with the whole logo stating "Designed by Gamers" they are pretty much aiming that at gamers in my book).

I am curious as well on the price, my guess is $750 because if they did $650 I feel it would undercut the GTX 980 because for the (Estimated) performance difference $150 would not be much for that much more performance at least to me. The down side to that guess is that versions like MSI lightning and EVGA Classified will then run close to $1000 which I would be sad to see those priced at that point.

Not even 10%. I would bet it is less than 5% weaker actually.

With the performance difference probably evened out or surpassing the Titan-X on some of the special models, I imagine.

That is an EVGA issue there. Never buy from that garbage company unless you enjoy RMA's.

We need to see an official benchmarking scores in order to proof that the 980Ti is fast in it's class while being slightly cheaper than the Titan X. For now I'm still happy with my 970 G1 Gaming video card as I'm not targeting 1440p gaming just yet. ^^;

Wow... I remember Odyssey Visual Design Computer Animation Festivals at the La Jolla Museum of Contemporary Art, 1986 & 1987 those where exciting times... all to the sound track of 91X

970 can do 1440p no problem.

Hitting walls at 1440p with 780. Will buy whichever is cheaper of the two. (Hopin' it's the 980Ti)

Captain_TomThat is an EVGA issue there. Never buy from that garbage company unless you enjoy RMA's.
I thought evga was supposed to be the best nvidia partner out there. As for me same here I've had all the problems with nvidia cards, both my Gts250 and after that my msi gtx460 started having screen artifacts and then completely died on me, and it so happened right after the warranty expired each time. I dont upgrade as frequently as most people here so longevity is important for me.AMD/ATI cards are way more future proof than nvidia card in my opinion. From the red camp I currently have my old hd5770 which is still running like a charm on an older phenom 2 gaming rig. And I helped my friend build a gaming rig around an r9 290x which is running very nicely. And as for my current I5 main rig it's running on an old spare hd4650 or something low end like that just until I make up my Mind on something, I'm currently not as hasty since hardly game as much as I used to. Any who maybe this round is the time for upgrades for me, crossing my fingers.

I just dont get it, who really wants this card?
The Titan X might be the fastest single card but in my book is a major disappointment, lacking the power it should have by a lot.

Its like buying something for (more then) maximum dollar that is outdated day 1.
And now a slower version comes out......well sign me up....right?
