nVidia GTX980 Maxwell Review

3D Mark Vantage

As we've just seen, a non-nVidia design usually has a better cooler which means that the card will also come out of the box with a factory overclock, which nVidia don't provide. So whilst the GTX980 doesn't necessarily blow our socks off in 3D Mark Vantage, if you cast your eyes down the graph a little to the reference nVidia GTX780Ti you'll see that the GTX980 is pretty good. Especially as we know the power draw of this beast, but we're saving it for the end.

Just skimming through the numbers on this awesome review it looks like 780 Ti owners are going to have to wait for something truly epic.
Apart from the energy efficiency the differences between the 780 Ti and 980 are miniscule.Quote

Read why....... Expecting the last card owners to upgrade everytime is a bit narrow minded IMHOQuote

BTW the GTX 980 is available for purchase in AU already, which is surprising.

Rly this is nothing spectacular at all. For something that draws so little power I was expect the temps to be much better then they are currently and performance wise this gets edged out by the R9 290x and 780ti a lot.Quote
