Nvidia has announced the GTX 780 Ti, a new high-end GPU based on its Kepler architecture. The card is due for release in mid-November, although no pricing was announced.
The company also revealed that its upcoming ShadowPlay capture software–which was originally slated for launch in the summer–can now stream directly to streaming service Twitch at 720p resolution and 60 frames per second. Nvidia claims that ShadowPlay puts little to no strain on a player’s CPU, by using the GPU directly to encode video.
In a demonstration, Nvidia showed Splinter Cell: Blacklist being streamed live, with the game maintaining a consistent frame rate throughout. Players can overlay a webcam video using the Shadowplay software, and record footage locally in 1080p at 60fps.
Shadowplay is due for release on October 28.
