Average Bench: 99.4% (11th of 547)

Based on 53,767 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]

Bought used for £250 and considering it's significantly cheaper than the GTX 1070 and outperforms it in most cases, I've got to say this graphics card is an absolute bargain at the moment. Shame I only have the reference model...


Outstanding

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!


Outstanding

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.


Excellent

Beats the 1070 even in 2017, and with both overclocked it still wins. Comes rather close to the 1080 as well.


Outstanding

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.


Outstanding

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

Feel the power, not the empty bank account. You can find this card used for $280- $360 as of 8/24/17 and its PLENTY of power for 1080p gaming, i did a bit of OC and playing Rise of the Tomb Raider in 4K on high settings and maintaining 60 fps.... ON 4K...... so, keep an eye out for them as bleeding edge nerds (like im trying to be lol) and Etherium miners are dumping these for cheap right now... They are made for OC and putting up with a lot of stress, so its hard to find one that doesn't work. so unless you see the PCIe pins are burned (yes that has happened) or some other physical damage is obvious, jump on one!!!!
