Nvidia has just announced their new GeForce GTX 980 Ti GPU, a model that should take the space in between GTX 980 and the Titan X both in terms of performance and in terms of price. The GTX 980 Ti is essentially a slightly stripped down version of the Titan X GPU with slightly less CUDA cores that are 2816 here and with a bit less TMUs – 176 units. The other significant difference in comparison with the Titan X is that the GTX 980 Ti comes with 6GB of video memory instead of 12 GB. The recommended end user price of the new GTX 980 Ti GPUs is $649 USD so it is significantly better priced as compared to the Titan X and considering that it should be showing a very similar performance it sounds like an interesting product not only for gaming, but for crypto mining as well.


So we are taking for a spin a single Nvidia GTX 980 Ti to compare it to the the GTX 980 and the Titan X GPUs using ccMiner 1.5.45 SP-MOD. Note that we are not using the latest version of ccMiner in order to compare the results in terms of hashrate on the other GPUs that we ran a bit ago. We’ve compared using the latest ccMiner as well and there is notable performance increase in some algorithms such as Quark, but for most others there is no significant difference. Just as a reference the GTX 980 Ti using the latest ccMiner 1.5.51 SP-MOD manages to provide a 23230 KHS hashrate for mining Quark, but as we’ve said there is not much of a difference with other algorithms. Other than that as you can see from the results the GTX 980 Ti GPU is very close in terms of performance as compared to the Titan X and much faster than the GTX 980. So if you are looking for a new high-end Nvidia GPU for gaming and crypto mining when not using your PC, then the GTX 980 Ti does seem like a great choice…
