The Nvidia GTX 980 is the new top end Maxwell based Nvidia GPU. The Maxwell architecture offers significantly higher clock for clock performance when compared to Kepler based cards from the previous generation. Comparing the GTX 980 and GTX 970 shows that the 970 only lags by around 17% in terms of performance but it's priced nearly 40% lower making the GTX 970 far better value for money card. Even though the GTX 970 beats the 980 in terms of value, the 980 still destroys previous generation cards. Comparing the GTX 980 and 780 Ti shows that the Newer 980 offers around 14% better performance at a 25% price discount. Nvidia have changed the price/performance landscape with their new Maxwell architecture and now pose a serious threat to AMDs high end GPU market share. The new GTX 980/970 cards replace the now discontinued GTX 780 Ti, 780 and 770. [Sep '14 GPUPro]

Hyped as the "Ultimate GEforce", the 1080 Ti is NVIDIA's latest flagship 4K VR ready GPU. It supersedes last years GTX 1080, offering a 30% increase in performance for a 40% premium (founders edition 1080 Tis will be priced at $699, pushing down the price of the 1080 to $499). It also supersedes the prohibitively expensive Titan X Pascal, pushing it off poll position in performance rankings. The 1080 Ti is based on the Pascal architecture and features a slightly modified version of the same flagship GP102 silicon found in the Titan X Pascal. It has 11GB of the high bandwidth GDDR5X video memory (versus 12GB in the Titan X Pascal) and an impressive 11GB frame buffer. Like the Titan X Pascal, it features 12bn transistors and 3584 CUDA cores which can run at a boost clock speed of 1.582 GHz – 3% faster than the Titan X Pascal's 1.531 GHz. This increased speed is partially attributable to the 1080 Ti’s new dualFET power system which allows the chip to run at higher power and more efficiently than ever before. The release of the 1080 Ti comes ahead of the competition from AMD's Vega - rumored for release in Q2 2017. Vega is AMD's next generation graphics card (following on from Polaris 10) featuring their new HBM2 die which is alleged to have eight times the capacity of GDDR5 with half of the footprint. NVDIA's own next generation graphics cards (Volta) are in the pipeline for 2018. [Mar '17 GPUPro]
