If you happened to want to get a GeForce GTX Titan X you only have one choice, the reference design from NVIDIA. NVIDIA did not allow add-in board (AIB) partners to modify the card with a custom PCB or a different cooler. Well it looks like this will change with the GeForce GTX 980 Ti, with NVIDIA apparently green-lighting custom versions of the card.
Also even better news than that, current rumors have NVIDIA announcing the card sometime in late May or early June. This put it right around Computex, where AMD is supposed to be launching their Radeon 300 series, which will be led by the Radeon R9 390X. As we expect this is NVIDIA’s plan to take some of the thunder away from AMD at the show. It should be a very interesting summer for graphics cards that is for sure!
From what we know the GeForce GTX 980 Ti will be based on the same GM200 core as the Titan X, but will have half the memory (so 6GB) and will launch at $699.
