After the surprising yet amazing release of Nvidia GTX 980 Ti, ultra-enthusiast gamers (with big wallets) are desperately waiting for the rumored and the most important component for true 4K surround gaming.
Friends, I am talking about Nvidia GTX 990 Ti, which is supposed to be released by Q4 2016. Now, you’ll be surprised that folks at WCCFTech already had a chance to benchmark the behemoth.
But something doesn’t feel right! If they really had a chance to play with GTX 990 Ti, why would they do it on games like Solitaire and Minesweeper? I think that I have the perfect answer! It is because these two games are two of the most power hungry and graphically intense games out there that rivals with the likes of Crysis 3, Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, GTA 5, Assassin’s Creed: Unity, Need for Speed Rivals, etc.!
I understand that no other game could have tested the limit of a 2×12 GB graphics card, but you could at least test it on Max Payne (2001) and let us know if we should break our fix deposits or not! I mean, are you kidding me?
Let me tell you the specs of this card and you’ll downright drool all over your mechanical Razor keyboard. I agree that I have no proof if they are real or not, but if the growing trend on release dates on the internet is any indication, there is no longer a place for proof anymore.
|NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X||Nvidia GeForce GTX 990 Ti|
|Clock Speed||1002 MHz||1216 MHz|
|Boost Clock||1089 MHz||1352
|VRAM||12 GB GDDR5||2 x 12 GB GDDR5|
|Bandwidth||336GB/S||336GB/S per GPU|
|Memory Clock||7.0 GHz||7.0 GHz|
With that kind of horse power, you could really run each and every game on 4K, surround sound and if AR and VR (augmented reality and virtual reality, respectively) is your thing, this card will be perfect for you.
Its release is only going to confuse you because Nvidia GTX 1000 series is probably right around the corner of Q1 2016, which is the next big thing from Nvidia.
Pascal, that’s what they are going to be called and believe me, you’ll see games in a whole new way when they are released.
One can only guess what the price of this Ultra-Enthusiast-Gaming card’s price is going to be. If this is actually a dual-gpu card of Titan X, then the price is going to fall in the bracket of $2500 to $3000.
As I said this card is not for the faint of hearts. It will go great with an equally powerful CPU, Motherboard, RAM and what not!
Consider this article a place to vent yourself about Nvidia GTX 990 Ti because even if it does come out would you be purchasing it for such a ridiculous cost! I know that I won’t!
However, the comment section is the right place to start a flaming discussion. Keep it cool though!
