NVIDIA is planning to tap into full support for 4K gaming. Following up with its flagship model, the GTX 980, it has now introduced the GTX 980 Ti. The new graphics card has new features that makes it tailored for 4K PC gaming.

This new flagship model features an aluminum casing, making it suitable for 4K gaming support. Games like "The Witcher 3" are able to run at 45FPS, which is a big leap from the 19FPS at 4K resolution on the GTX 680. The same goes for upcoming title "Project Cars," which is looking at a 47FPS run on the new GeForce GTX 980 Ti.

The new graphics card is powered by the second-generation Maxwell architecture. It supports DirectX 12 effects and also packs in more video RAM. The jump is quite huge from the 4GB video in the GTX 980 to the 6GB video RAM in the GTX 980 Ti. The new Maxwell chipsets also offer high-resolution performance and lighting with better frame rates while consuming less power.

The GTX 980 Ti is clocked at 1000 MHz. Although, the clock speed is lower than the previous cards, NVIDIA has decided to fill up the void by including a better pixel and texture fill rate. It has also packed in 8,000 transistors compared to the 5,200 in GTX 980. It also packs in 2816 CUDA cores and a 3MB L2 cache, as stated in the official NVIDIA blog.

NVIDIA’s GTX 980 Ti is a solution for gamers wanting to shift to the world of 4K gaming without burning a hole in their pockets. The new video card also supports G-sync technology, as reported by CNET. G-Sync is the video card manufacturer’s answer to screen tearing. Screen tearing is caused by a horizontal distortion when the monitor’s refresh rate falls out of sync with the video card’s refresh rate.

The new graphics card from Nvidia is priced at $649 and also includes a copy of the upcoming “Batman: Arkham Knight” for PC. The introduction of this new graphics card will also result in a price drop of the GTX 980.
