Lightbulb GTX 980 and GTX 970 Listed!

GTX 980 and GTX 970 have been listed on Synnex. The listing reveals that Gigabyte is working on a G1 Gaming GTX 970 and a reference GTX 980.

Both, GTX 980 and GTX 970 have 4GB 256bit memory configuration.

Quote:
Gigabyte GTX 970 G1 Gaming (GV_N970GI_GAMING_4GD)
NVIDIA GTX970 128*32 DDR5 256 BIT

Gigabyte GTX 980 (GV_N980D5_4GD_B )
NVIDIA GTX980 256BIT/4096MB/PCI-E 3.0/128*32 DDR5 256 BIT




There have been a few benchmark runs posted online of the GTX 980/970. If they are real, then the performance is a bit disappointing.

Asus Strix GTX 970 and GTX 980 have also been listed

This confirms the rumor that Nvidia is skipping the 800 series.

Old news???
Synnex was first to list them and it was less than 15 hours ago

Do you have the link to the German retailer that has GTX 970 and 980 listed?

Edit: Updated OP with more listings

I didn't even know they skipped the 8xx series. Not really paying much attention to new hardware lately, didn't read anything about x99.

Nice GPU score, looking forward to see how the new gtx 980 compares to 780 ti in a 3D render GPU application such as Octane Render. And how well it scales in different SLI configurations.

If this is true that is very disappointing.

Thanks for the heads up.

I knew that the performance increase was not going to be much, but I underestimated by how much. I think the top of the line GTX 980 would be easily beaten by a reference overclocked air cooled GTX 780TI.

Nvidia better have cut the power usage drastically/ made the card much smaller so that it fits in small htpc or there's not going to be that much point in upgrading from the 780/TI
