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]

The GTX 1650 supersedes NVIDIA’s two year old 1050, outperforming it by around 52%. It features a TU117 processor based on the latest Turing architecture, which is a reduced version of the TU116 in the GTX 1660. The 1650 has 896 NVIDIA CUDA Cores, a base/boost clock of 1485/1665 MHz and 4GB of GDDR5 memory running at up to 8Gbps. The reference version has a low (75W) power consumption and higher power variants are available with greater overclocking headroom. At a list price of USD $150, this card is the cheapest Turing based graphics card available, however, in the budget market where “value for money” reigns supreme, AMD’s two year old RX 570 8GB outperforms the 1650 by around 15%, has double the memory (therefore is more future proof) and can often be found cheaper. NVIDIA will have to discount prices significantly in order to draw budget gamers to the GTX 1650. [Apr '19 GPUPro]
