NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Ti is a High-End desktop graphics card based on the Maxwell architecture. It uses the big GM200 chip with 2,816 CUDA cores (versus 2048 of the GTX 980) and is manufactured in 28 nm. Together with the NVidia Titan X (that uses the same chip with more graphics memory), the 980Ti was the fastest single chip graphics card for desktops in 2015. In 2016 the new Pascal based GeForce GTX 1070 and 1080 however were faster while using less energy thanks to the new architecture and the 16 nm process.
