The GeForce GTX 980 Ti is an NVIDIA GPU that was released in June 2015.
This GPU is good at gaming with a score of 38% in our PC benchmark.
The GeForce GTX 980 Ti has 6 GiB of GDDR5 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 328 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 384 bits. More memory is beneficial when gaming at high resolutions as the memory needs to store the frame buffer and all the game textures. If you run out of memory, you will experience poor performance as the GPU needs to swap data in and out of the memory as it is used.
In terms of clock speed, the GeForce GTX 980 Ti GPU core runs at a frequency of 1076 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 1076 MHz. A clock speed is the frequency at which the GPU updates. A higher speed means more processing can happen per cycle. This is useful only when comparing cards of the same generation, as other architectures may process more or less per clock.
As for rendering API support, the GeForce GTX 980 Ti supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.5 features are supported. Higher level APIs such as DirectX 12 give more control to the game developer and can allow them to improve the graphics and performance.
This chip has a Thermal Design Power of 250W: the total amount of waste heat generated. A card that runs hotter will need better cooling and will draw more power from the wall.
