The new Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 and GTX 970 graphics cards are set to launch very soon, bringing with them a wave of features that will make them the new flagship Nvidia GPU’s. There has been a lot of speculation on the cards specifications in recent weeks, but now it looks like most of the final specs have been revealed.
The GeForce GTX 980 is set to feature 2048 CUDA cores via 16 Streaming Multiprocessors Maxwell (SMM), while the GTX 970 features 1664 CUDA cores via 13 SMMs, leaving a 384 CUDA core difference between the two cards.
The GeForce GTX 980 (GM204) is being sold as the replacement for the current GK104 hardware and since the new architecture is set to offer improved power efficiency and performance, that shouldn’t be a difficult task.
We don’t have long to wait until these cards are fully revealed, but early indications are that they’re going to be a worthy step up from the current 7xx models.
