The NDA for NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 980Ti will be lifted tomorrow, however Chinese website ZOL has posted earlier the first official benchmarks for this new GPU.
ohh la laa
The R9 295 x2 still holding up :0
yeah..if you like a card with buggy ass drivers, no nvidia gameworks, and no gsync + crap = go for it
And you just won the stupid of the month award. Driver issues are present on both AMD and NVIDIA GPUs, and are on a per game basis, the VAST majority of games have no issue with either GPU, it's newer games that haven't had a chance to get proper updates that affect the GPUs, NVIDIA is usually quicker about this since they have the most market share thus more power over PC games, but AMD is usually no more than a week or 2 behind, and a powerful card will pull through regardless. Gameworks is so minor it's not even worth mention. Gsync is nice, but again GPUs this high up have no need when they're running pretty much every game at 80+ fps in 1440p. Obviously you have nothing else to add. For the High end the R9 295x2 is the BEST VALUE without question, unless you absolutely want a single card GPU, in which case the R9 290 and GTX 970 is by far the best card for when it comes to Price and performance (290x also), everything else is just overpriced for the gains you get over the 290 / 970 / 290x (10% - 20% fps boost, for $200 - $700).
I've been using r9 270x with no complaints. Great performence at an even better price.
TheOpenWorlder ladies and gentlemen .... Thankyou for your crap comment.
Haha try harder fanboy! Gameworks = game doesn't work (For anyone) G-Sync = Dead on Arrival Nvidia Drivers = accidentally having your card's fan deactivated and melting. Look it up it was a big issue.
Just got witcher 3 and I'm getting 40 fps on high, but with hairworks off.
Best card for the money for the top end. It's as low as $550 with rebates. That's an insane deal, for a card that won't be beat by single card GPUs for another 2+ years.
Except in 2 weeks by Radeon Fury but enjoy your two weeks lol
i think ill be upgrading my 770 at that price unless the 770 gos way down then ill pick up another 770.
Time to sell the 970
On the same boat with you. I had 2x 970s, sold one because it was enough, but now I just want this to play all my games at higher resolutions and higher framerates.
Why not just buy another 970?
I have an itx motherboard and case. @Razputin Same here. I just got a 1440p 144hz monitor and while the 970 is good at 1080p, it's kinda slow at 1440p.
LMAO i was thinking the same thing Got the Msi gtx 970 3.5g ill put what ever i get for it on the 980ti.
I dunno man. 2 970s are still the best for performance vs cost. Then again, if your mobo doesn't support sli, 980ti is the way to go.
Wow didn't think the price was gonna be that low. Would love to see what these bad boys do when in sli. Also lets hope AMD steps up with the 300 series. We need the competition.
There were leaked benches of the 390x about a month or two ago putting up similar numbers, and similar prices...whatever article it was did the exact same thing; matches Titan X @ ~$600 rumors are rumors, but i bet AMD will also have a TX matching card by late summer/early fall...
Price drop for 980 inbound.
Off of DF: "The arrival of the GTX 980 Ti causes a mild ripple effect to prices elsewhere in Nvidia's high-end GPU line-up. The GTX 980 - still a remarkably good card, by the way - drops down to $499, but the value-rific GTX 970 remains at its previous $330. "
F**k yeah I'm ready to upgrade. It's a little more than 2x faster than my 770. This card should be prefect for that 3440x1440 master race gaming.
yeah let's all get 4 of them slotted together :-)) great news. I wish you could get them at $ prices in the UK
My next PC build will probably have this card, for the price you're getting great performance with it. Probably won't be upgrading for another 2-3 years as my current setup is just fine.
So basically a Titan X with a lower price. Sounds good.
I'm happy with my 970oc but this does look lovely. (My highest res display is only 1080p anyway) As others have said, I hope AMD bring some good competition, preferably that has decent heat/power/noise/performance ratios. The cards I've had before this one had serious compromises in one way or another.
Have to wait till E3 for news on the 300 series from AMD. They are holding a special conference on Tuesday June 16th at 8 pm. http://www.game-debate.com/... Im waiting till Black Friday 2016 for my build since both AMD and Nvidia should both have GPUs that use HBM which will be great for 4k which I would love to do.
Ugh, the 980 ti is about twice as fast as a 680 right? So I'm paying 650$ for a card twice as fast as my OC 670 that I've paid 300$ 2 years ago? :/ Not much better price/perf. I'm not sure I want to wait HMB gen 2 on pascal. What do. I'll wait and see what amd has up their sleeves.
The 980 is twice as strong as your 970. This is likely almost 3x stronger. Radeon Fury will be 4x stronger.
This card was rumoured to be priced at $700 if the true price was below that people would buy this in a heart beat, turns out it actually is under the rumoured $700 price and it seems like NVIDIA have slaughtered AMD before their 300 series cards release. Unless they price their 390x at $600 and performance similar or more than the 980 ti i dont see AMD getting anymore market share than they already have. I could be wrong though, we'll have to wait and see.
Jesus, I have always purchased Titans simply because of the good resell value (Upgrade to the newest one annually for only a few hundred bucks)... But I don't see my resell value holding up quite as well this time around which really sucks. Their has always been enough of a reason to pick up a titan in the past in terms of performance... but not this time really. If I didn't already buy an X, I'd chose this any day of the week.
My 290x from last summer still crushes everything at 1600p and I'm perfectly ok with it for probably 2 more years until HBM and the ability for 4k 60fps on every game. If I was building a PC this summer, this would be my card. Looks fantastic. I would go AMD or NVIDIA, as I've had both multiple times with no issues. 290x is best value on market for 1440/1600p until this card, and next summer will be insane.
Finally a realistically affordable "future proof" card from NVIDIA. Probably going to upgrade my 770 when this either goes on sale or when it causes the original 980's price to drop.
Not to be a negative Nancy, but its anything like the 970 fiasco it might be best to hold off a few weeks till the cards get into reviewer hands. there could always be potential issues lurking under the surface of what seems like an stellar deal.
I hate myself I just bought two 980 SC last month, woulda bought two of these :/
http://www.evga.com/support... people have been talking about it since the anouncement & i had never heard of the step up program before you might want to check it out!
well i just started my savings for this by my math i should be ready around november hopefully they will have some black friday deals i guess
just curious, i don't know much about gpus and pcs but i was wondering would i be better off getting another 980 for sli setup or better off trying to sell my current 980 and get a 980 ti?
Sigh! Just like Sony v Xbox. The Nvidia vs AMD fight is ridiculous. 980ti is a great card at a great price. So is 290x. Having choices is good! Anyone want to be forced to choose between a $1,000 card a $200 card and an iGPU? Didn't think so. There is NO BEST!
