Average Bench: 126% - 5th / 533

Based on 35,446 user benchmarks.  Device: 10DE 17C8 Models: NVIDIA Graphics Device, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti

The new GTX 980 Ti shares the same board as the more expensive Titan-X but with various restrictions including a reduced number of CUDA cores (3072 to 2816, -8.3%). Although the 980 Ti has the same 384-bit memory bandwidth as the Titan-X it only has 6GB of GDDR5 vs. 12GB in the Titan-X. So far we only have one user benchmark from a pre-release unit of the GTX 980 Ti so the following benchmarks are provisional. Comparing the Titan-X and 980 Ti shows that the Ti only lags by around 8%, which is in line with the CUDA core counts on the two cards. On the other hand comparing the GTX 980 and GTX 980 Ti shows that the Ti is around 16% faster. We don't have reliable prices for the GTX 980 Ti yet so a precise value rating isn't possible but as a card aimed at resolutions greater than 1080p it will struggle to match the GTX 970 for the vast majority of users. [May '15 GPUPro]

Not as beast as 1080, but almost the same price. Overclocks like a mad man, and keeps cooler then my 1080.

Excellent price/performance ratio. It is similar performance to the $1000 Titan X for $350 less.—Jun '15

Maybe you get this beast in a lower/used price than 1070 and still perform better with good cooling in your case! Also Dx12_1 will make this 6gb get filled 100%!

If you can find one for around $80 less than a 1070 then seriously consider it. for 1440p this a strong performing card (mine hits solid 90 fps in AAA maxed) and will get you easily to 144hz at 1080p.

I can get to 1540mhz/4050mhz on the MSI´s Sea Hawk version of the card at super low temperatures. Compared to a newer 1070 in gaming, an overclocked 980ti can match, and even surpass an OCed 1070 in many cases. Video editing/production really shows the raw horsepower of a 980ti, where it´s performance is tied neck-to-neck to a 1080. The only 2 downsides are the higher TDP and lower Vram. An absolute beast of a GPU!

Runs great. Gets hot and the reference cooler brings her back down. OC'ed to get some really impressive performance. No complaints, although it is a bit expensive, still a good value!

Amazing card! Got Strix OC for 300eur brand new...absolute steal. After overclocking it just destroys gtx 1070 and veeery close to 1080(8% better than average mobile 1080 according to userbenchmark). Runs hella cool considering fan speed, never over 40% , everything under that is whisper quiet and temps are max 75C after very long gaming. Only downside is coil whine which is unbearable in some games without Vsync.

This GPU is a BEAST! At 1080p, this card just embarasses video games. Unless your gaming at 144Hz, get a 1440p or higher resolution monitor for this card. You'll be maxing out every game for the forseeable future. 10/10 Would game.

Incredible ability to overclock. Some question the ability of async with this card but hopefully it can be software implemented.
