The rumour mill is spinning with full force this morning, as the guys at SweClockers report that Nvidia will be launching a more affordable GM200 based GPU this summer.
The new card, expected to be the GeForce GTX 980 Ti, will feature the GM200 hardware with 2072 CUDA cores, the same as the current Titan X. However, the card is expected to feature less memory and perhaps a few other refinements to help bring the cost down to something more affordable.
What’s crazy is that the Titan X is already proving a big hit, Nvidia is actually selling their $1000 cards like crazy, despite the concerns most of us have when we check our bank balances or try explaining such a fanciful purchase to our SO. If Nvidia can get much of the performance of the Titan X into a price point that won’t be such a bitter pill to swallow, then that can only be a good thing for consumers, because I think we can all agree that flagship GPU prices are getting out of hand.
The 980 Ti seems like a sure thing, especially given it will no doubt launch at the GAME24 event and be around the same time as the AMD 3xx series launches; Nvidia would be mad not to have something to compete with at that time.
