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]
