Although you may have heard rumors about it, Nvidia has never revealed anything about a GeForce GTX 980 Ti. However, thanks to a leak from the website Overclock3D, it seems likely that the chip giant is working on the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti – the worthy successor to the 980 Ti.
Here’s what the leak tell us about how the Geforce GTX 1080 Ti specs may possibly look like:
Earlier this July, Nvidia had introduced the Titan X to take over its previous-generation GeForce GTX Titan X. The Titan X is basically based on the partially disabled version of GP102, a chip with 3,840 graphics processing cores (only 3,584 of them were enabled in the Titan X). It is compatible with a base frequency of 1417 MHs, and a boost frequency of 1531 MHz.
Titan X also boasted 12 GB of GDDR5X memory.
As per the new leak, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti will be equipped with 3,328 enabled graphics core, running at the base and boost frequencies of 1503 MHz and 1623 MHz respectively. That’s no doubt significantly higher compared to the Titan X.
While the GTX 1080 Ti will probably have 12GB of memory, it is likely that the card will make use of a cheaper (and less efficient) GDDR5 memory, unlike the GDDR5X in the Titan X.
So far gaming performance is concerned, the higher clock speeds have made us think that the GTX 1080 Ti will probably have enough power to be at par with the more expensive Titan X.
