See below - this is just one of my 780 TI's active - SLI completely disabled, with a fresh reboot. Interesting results.RippyZ said:If possible could you run it with only 1 gpu active? I'd like to see how I stack up with the single 980 and then try to estimate how an sli 980 would do.
What I find most interesting is how the 980 is able to perform as well or even slightly edge out the 780ti with less cores, lower memory bandwidth, lower texture fill rate and a 165 W power vs the 780tis 250 W. Of course the Maxwell chip hits higher stock clocks which helps it.neoclerodane said:See below - this is just one of my 780 TI's active - SLI completely disabled, with a fresh reboot.

None of those things really surprise me to be honest - it's a new chip - I should fucking hope it has performance and features greater than what exists presently. I'd be more impressed if it wasn't just marginally higher performing than the 780 ti.RippyZ said:What I find most interesting is how the 980 is able to perform as well or even slightly edge out the 780ti with less cores, lower memory bandwidth, lower texture fill rate and a 165 W power vs the 780tis 250 W.

Maxwell is quite the chip and I can't wait to see what they can do with it when they push for the actual highend maxwell chips for the I'm guessing 970/80 ti. I wonder what they could have done if they produced the chips on a 22nm fab. Then we have Pascal to look forward too as well.
You are on the wrong preset you need to be on Extreme HD not Extreme.Simon719 said:that doesn't look as good score for a single card?
here is my "Heaven" single card score while we at it lol
We're not doing Haven here - just Valley. Maybe another thread would be best for Haven.Simon719 said:I am on the correct preset for each benchmark, extreme hd for valley and extreme for heaven?
I think you made a good decision for sure with the 970s, they perform admirably.Simon719 said:Thanks, I have just upgraded from ATI, having had a crossfire HD6950x2 system for a while (3 years), i wanted to try nVidia. was going to buy 2x 780ti, but then read loads of reviews regarding the 970 and they seemed to perform about the same, were the next gen, a bit cheaper (?280) and used less power, so went with them instead, the scores seem to agree with that, so I'm happy enough.
would love to see if they bring out a 980ti? with a 384bit bus? but guess that will be quite expensive too? now i have gone the 970 route, I guess my next upgrade will be another 970 (once the prices drop in 2015) to give tri-Sli a go to expensive to keep swapping cards to next gen... but then again, all depends how good the boss is and how good the 980ti is?
if 980ti kicks my two 970's I might sell them both and buy a 980ti, but loads of "IF's" there lol time will tell?
for now though I am really enjoying the huge increase in fps and picture quality going from HD6950 crossfire to GTX970 sli
