Taiwan's annual Computex convention kicks off this week, and that means that Nvidia has some new goodies to show off. Nvidia's latest flagship GPU is here, and it's called the GeForce GTX 980 Ti. As you can tell from the name, it's supposed to be a beefier version of the prior flagship, the GTX 980
. But the specs suggest it might be a nice way to enjoy some of the Titan X's massive power
without paying up for that monster.
This time around, it looks like Nvidia is pumping up the 4K performance of its latest and greatest. According to the company's own benchmarks, the Maxwell-based GPU can run games like Battlefield 4
and Shadow of Mordor
in 4K at max settings while keeping framerates well over 30fps. GTA V
at Very High settings came in at 31.6fps, and the company says the GPU can run The Witcher 3
in 4K (at unspecified settings) at 45fps. It's likely that the GTX 980 Ti's 6GB of GDDR5 memory is helping keep 4K playable. (The Titan X, for comparison, has a 12GB frame buffer, but seriously, that's overkill.)
