Manli has announced its new Maxwell-based NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 and GTX 970 GPUs, both rocking a reference cooler, with a third offering a cooling design by Manli for its GTX 970.
Starting with the Manli GeForce GTX 980 which is powered by NVIDIA's GM204 Maxwell-based GPU, which has a TDP of 178W, up from the stock 165W on NVIDIA's reference GTX 980. We have a 2048 CUDA cores, 4GB of GDDR5 RAM on a 256-bit memory bus, a Core Clock of 1126MHz, Base Boost Clock of up to 1216MHz, and 7010MHz Memory Clock. For display connectivity, the Manli GTX 980 has three DisplayPort outputs, a single HDMI 2.0 out, and two DVI outputs.
Moving onto the GTX 970, we have two models: the reference GTX 970 and then the aftermarket design. The reference card features 1164 CUDA cores, 4GB of GDDR5 RAM on a 256-bit memory bus, a Core Clock of 1050MHz, Boost Clock of 1178MHz, and 7010MHz on the memory, the same as the GTX 980. When it comes to the display connectivity, we have the same ports as the GTX 980: three DisplayPort outputs, one HDMI 2.0 and two DVI ports.
Manli has also provided a slightly modified GTX 970 with an aftermarket cooler, something that comes with slightly increased Base and Boost Clocks. We have 1076MHz, up from 1050MHz for Base, and 1216MHz up from 1178MHz for the Boost Clock. The Memory Clock remains the same: 7010MHz. These cards should be available right now in select markets.
