Graphics titan ‘Nvidia’ is on full throttle at Taiwan’s Annual Computex convention unveiling couple of new products. It is recently reported that Nvidia’s flagship GPU has arrived and that’s a high-end mega performance card ‘GeForce GTX 980 ti’ which will bring the latest gaming trends to desktop users. As one can tell according to its name it’s supposed to be superior to its predecessor.
Nvidia is getting high on heels with 4K performance. 6GB Frame buffer helps for 4K gaming and that’s Nvidia bet on this one. That said, it’s certainly in Nvidia’s best interest to make it seem like 4K is the new standard of high-quality gaming. If people can play games at nice settings at reasonable resolutions with their current card, they aren’t very likely to upgrade. But the reality is that 4K monitors are still relatively rare, and you’re most certainly better served by cranking up the settings at a more typical, lower resolution. GPU is designed to work hand-in-hand with the upcoming DirectX 12 graphics APIs for developers. With DirectX 12, the new GPU will be able to more efficiently use its memory when rendering complex volumetric elements, like fluids, smoke, fire, and advanced lighting effects.
The new card sports 2,816 parallel processing CUDA cores and 176 texture units, around 38 percent more than the GTX 980, as well as 2 additional gigabytes of RAM giving it 6GB. It’s also based on NVIDIA’s new GM200 GPU, which is at the heart of the company’s absurdly expensive $1,000 Titan X card. NVIDIA claims its memory bandwidth is also 50 percent faster than its predecessor, which makes a big difference when throwing huge textures around.
The GTX 980 Ti will cost you $649.99, and it will be available within a week, according to the company. Nvidia is also announcing a new set of tools that specifically caters to VR, aptly named “GameWorks VR”. Along with the original GameWorks, these tools can help game developers squeeze out every bit from NVIDIA GPUs, with features like SLI, reduced latency, and, now, support for VR headsets.
