At the end of last week, some rumored specifications for NVIDIA's unannounced GeForce GTX 980 Ti appeared and showed some really promising information. Today we have something new about it, something that looks to be even more concrete. A GPU-Z image has surfaced that apparently is a reading of the GTX 980 Ti, and while a couple details are missing, the rest looks quite good. The name shows the GTX 980 Ti, there are 2816 shaders (CUDA cores), 6144MB of GDDR5 from Hynix, a 384-bit bus, a pixel fillrate of 96 GPixels/s, and a texture fillrate of 234 GTexels/s. The core is shown at 1000MHz, the memory at 1753MHz, and the boost is at 1076MHz; all things that are in line with the TITAN X. The big information that has a watermark over it is the ROP count, which is really the only unknown detail at this time. If it's the same as the TITAN X or slightly less because of the CUDA count is something that could factor into the total usable memory, but I guess we still have to wait to find that out.
Two leaked shots of 3DMark tests also accompany the GPU-Z image, with the 3DMark Fire Strike test hitting a total score of 14,071, and the Cloud Gate test obtaining a total of 29,444. The graphics score for Fire Strike is 17,091, while the graphics score for Cloud Gate is 107,868. All are impressive, but are still unconfirmed until we get something definitive from NVIDIA. Hopefully soon.
