GeForce GTX 980

Item Details

  1. Overview
    GeForce GTX 980 4GB is a high-end Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Maxwell architecture. It surpassed previous GeForce GTX 780 Ti and cost less. It was also much more energy efficient. Read below to know more.

    Architecture
    The Second variant of the Maxwell Architecture, despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, has an extremely large L2 Cache and features a Third Generation Delta Color Compression which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.
    The Second Revision of Maxwell also adds VXGI (Voxel Global Illumination) which makes scenes significantly more lifelike and believable as light interacts more realistically in the game environment and the MFAA technology which provides the same effect as MSAA but at a much lower performance cost.

    GPU
    It equips a GPU codenamed GM204-400-A1 which has 16 SM activated and thus 2048 Shader Processing Units, 128 TMUs and 64 ROPs, on a 256-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at 1126MHz and goes up to 1216MHz, in Turbo Mode, while the memory clock operates at 1753MHz.

    Features
    DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, VXGI, MFAA, GameStream, G-SYNC, GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.

    Cooling Solution
    The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan and is identical to the one seen on GeForce GTX 780. The Card is known to run cool and has a maximum operating temperature of 98ºC.

    Power Consumption
    With a rated board TDP of 165W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with two 6-pin connectors.

    Release Price
    The release price of $550 is lower than of its predecessor - GeForce GTX 780 which was launched for $649.

    Performance
    Gaming benchmarks prove that at 4K (3840x2160) GeForce GTX 980 4GB is over 20% faster than its predecessor and even beats GeForce GTX 780 Ti in about 7%.

    System Suggestions
    We recommend a very strong processor (Intel Core i7 Quad Core/AMD FX Eight Core) and 12GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 980 4GB.
