Nvidia May Be Reviving its Old ''Ti'' Marker

By - Source: TechPowerUp | B 32 comments

The Ti marker was discovered in a leaked set of 266.44 GeForce drivers.

TechPowerUp has spotted the "Ti" marker used in a recently-retained set of leaked 266.44 GeForce drivers. The "Ti" marker is surprising given that Nvidia previously used it nearly a decade ago to differentiate GeForce 3 and GeForce 4 GPUs with programmable shaders (Ti) from the mainstream (MX) GPUs without the shaders.

Obviously present day Nvidia GPUs don't require markers like Ti and MX, as most Nvidia GPUs have nearly the same feature-set across the board. Still, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti is written as clear as day in the driver set, an unreleased and unannounced GPU that assumingly isn't slated for notebooks. It's also highly unlikely that the listing is merely a typo.

As for specs, the GeForce GTX 560 Ti is based on the new GF114 silicon and features 384 CUDA cores, a 256-bit GDDR5 memory interface, and core clock speeds of 820 MHz. The new SKU is expected to arrive on January 25, 2011.

    yea I think I'm going to put one in my laptop.

    But seriously they should think about using this in a next-gen console, could you imagine what it could do? I mean think about what a gimped 7900GT can do for the ps3. A 560 with a solid cpu and 4GB of RAM, I mean I could only imagine how much better it would be.

    I actually did some research and seems like its true. There are even leaked pics of benchmarks etc. All showing same specs and the Ti suffix. So its true I bet. Not high bet but I do bet on it :p

    Softpedia quotes a Chinese site, saying it's a full fledged graphics card, not laptop card.

    But the important thing here is: what does the "Ti" moniker actually mean in this day and age ?

    What special feature does it have compared to a non "Ti" card ? Or is "Ti" just another form of differentiating between cards, meaning this is a better card ? Sort of "GTX +" ?

    My old Nissan Skyline was a Ti. At the time it meant 15inch mag wheels, velour trim, cruise control, colour coded bumper bars, and a trip computer.

    In saying that Ti could only mean it's a better card. maybe it will Chrome exhaust fans, gold plated dvi's, and stickers to give it extra kilowatts wait I mean megahertz.

    Rapper. TI gone graphic card? Is this like when ludacris tried to save the pontiac solstice? Probably not...but I can't wait till the 25th in all seriousness. 2 of those cards are going to be a nice addition. I would have gone 460 but the vapor coolers made me hold off til these are out :) .

    It should be Ps (Programmable Shaders) not Ti - it is surely a typo error. cheers.

    Nvidia marketing guys run out of tricks so they use old material. Seems that they'll lose AMD counterparts and have to compensate with big names like "Titanium", "Ultra", and "Mega". And sadly that works.

    As if graphics cards names aren't confusing enough.
