Today we are going to take a look at the EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti ACX SC+ ACX 2.0+ Graphics Card with Backplate 06G-P4-4995-KR.

The $600 to $700 range of video cards has become quite crowded as of late. Currently priced at $678.95, the EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti SC+ ACX 2.0+ graphics card is based on the 28 nanometer Maxwell architecture with 2816 unified shaders, 176 TMUs (texture mapping units) and 96 ROP (render output pipeline) units.
As with all GeForce GTX 980 Ti graphics cards, it is designed for at least 1750 MHz (7000 MHz effective) GDDR5 memory across a 384-bit bus.

The specifications above reveal some impressive stats.  The GeForce GTX 980 Ti graphics card offers similar performance to NVIDIA’s Titan X, but it doesn’t have all 3072 shaders enabled like the Titan X does. The EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti graphics card is capable to provide 3 times the performance previous generation cards. Currently, it is the fastest single GPU card available.  Also, it has 6 GB of fast GDDR5 memory which sits on a 384 bit bus and is really useful in terms of performance with higher resolutions. This graphics card has an improved ACX 2.0 cooler that provides temperatures up to 15% cooler than the reference design. Additional cooling is provided by the Memory/MOSFET cooling plate (MMCP). This graphics card has a 0 dB feature. Namely, fans are not started until the GPU core temperature reaches approximately 60 °C. All Maxwell based GPUs including this graphics card have impressive low power consumption, and  massive 14+3 power phase design definitely helps.
