Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 980 Ti is the ultra-cool guy with all the best clothes and a flashy car, but he also has a younger brother who’s a little more down to earth. That’s the GeForce GTX 980 Ti Mini, and it’s a bit cheaper than its namesake, offering comparable performance while saving you $350 on top of that.
NVIDIA’s new GTX 980 Ti Mini uses the same Maxwell 2.0 core as its bigger Titan X sibling, but it comes in at a more palatable price point of $649. The card also shaves off an entire gigabyte from the 12GB framebuffer on Titan X, making it a whole lot more accessible for mainstream gamers.
Even more impressively, the GTX 980 Ti Mini is able to be paired with a second card to enable SLI performance for some absolutely jaw-dropping 4K gaming action. The card is powered by a hefty 250W TDP and offers a trio of DisplayPort 1.2, HDMI 2.0 and DVI outputs. Monitors with more than one connector will likely require the use of an additional DVI-to-HDMI adapter, as the card supports just two display outputs by default.
EVGA’s nine-card GTX 980 Ti lineup consists of the K|NGP|N edition, which is designed for hardcore overclockers, while the FTW model settles in just below that and carries a slightly higher base clock and memory speed. The classy FTW Hydro and the mighty OC Boost are both positioned just below that. All models are available today from Newegg, and they’re backed by a generous warranty.
