The younger brother of the X is expected to land in the summer, with virtually identical specifications - and a seemingly lucrative price tag

We have not yet calmed down From the launch of the GeForce GTX Titan X About ten days ago, he suggested Unprecedented performance Single core cardBut also a price tag that he was very keen to recommend in the face of the alternatives), And it seems that the talk is already starting on who will continue his path.

According to recent reports, NVIDIA may repeat its steps from the Kepler generation and launch a product that will be very similar to its flagship card - but at a more attractive price. In the previous generation it was the GTX 780 Ti launched a little less than half a year after the original GTX Titan, this time it looks like the GTX 980 Ti, The Titan X is irrelevant Only a few months after it was launched.

So what will the GeForce GTX 980 Ti give us? It seems that this will be another model that will offer the new and large GM200 core in all its glory, with 3,074, CUDA units, 24, SMM clusters, 192 and 96 units for export and redistribution. The GTX 980 Ti will offer half the memory space of the Titan X, "only" 6GB of GDDR5 memory at the same effective 7GHz working frequency (which should still be sufficient for the vast majority of existing uses in the environment) - while at the same time the big surprise of the new model To be working frequencies that are higher than the 125MHz (base and turbo) than those of the Titan X, Are slightly better than those of the monster in 1,000 dollars.

If not enough, the price of the GTX 980 Ti should be significantly lower than that of the Titan X significantly - probably 700 dollars, similar to the GTX 780 Ti at the time of its launch, which could make it a real alternative to the GTX 980 with an addition Which justifies the extra price, at least for those who can afford it.

It is not yet clear whether the GeForce GTX 980 Ti will be launched this summer or a little later - it seems that the timing of the launch depends largely on the sales volume of the Titan X and on the launch date of rival rivals AMD, Which would be able to give a proper fit to both GTX 980 and Titan X And we were careful Pull out the heavy cannon.

The core of the GM200 is on the way to proving that it is not only very powerful but also relatively profitable
