Upgraded To GTX 980 From GTX 570 Need Performance check

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So far I am enjoying my 980 picked up the ASUS Strix From MC 2 weeks ago I am awaiting like most of you the release of GTA V as well as Evolve and Hardline. In the interim I would like to double check on the Frames I should be getting on a currently already released fps we all know BF4 On ultra settings in Dragons teeth maps 64 Man I am getting anywhere between 80 - 140 FPS however its never consistent. I have 120hz monitor and would like to keep the Frames at 120+ while maintaining the graphical fidelity of Ultra as I've experienced. Its like night and day compared to the 570 where most new games I had to run on med to low now a days. I have a 4770k no overclocked and 16gb Corsair Vengeance pro. Im using the last WHQL Nvidia Driver 344.75 All settings are ultra 2x AA and no ambient Occlusion BS ect is on or motion blur. Thanks for any insight and happy gaming! I am thinking of giving the beta drivers a shot as well I know they fix the HDMI bug. On a final note I got the GTX 980 for this very reason over the 970 @ 1080P maybe also the dragons teeth maps are poorly optimized. Any ways as always interested to see what you guys say as always!

Thanks OCN! thumb.gif

whats your cpu? you have no sig rig. its possible that you're bottlenecked by your cpu, particularly since you're on 64 player maps.

You should be able to max out settings to be honest. Considering you have a 120Hz monitor I am guessing you have a 1080p monitor, the 980 is focused on 4K ready displays so it will have no problems plowing through those games in 1080p.



Constant 120fps may be hard to achieve in multiplayer but anything above 60fps is rarely noticeable if at all. If you insist on constant 120fps you can try turning down AA to None.

Also best to get a nice aftermarket CPU cooler and cool that 4770k as they get a little hot under stock cooling even at stock speeds. Would recommend a Hyper 212+ at least ($30 cooler), there are some people on here on OCN selling some nice coolers at the marketplace for way below retail price, with those coolers you should be able to clock up to 4GHz to 4.2GHz at least with a slight voltage bump.

For consistent 1080p @ 120fps in graphics-intensive games I would have recommended 2x 970s over 1x 980. Nearly the same price ($100 difference give or take for another extra super-powerful GPU is a bargain)

Thanks for all the replies guys. After some further evaluation I am much more content with the card after switching to Windows 8.1 I gained nearly 50 fps compared to 7 64 bit. Really impressive to say the least. In terms of clocks I have the 4770k @ 4.3 Ghz on a corsair H55 which is not cutting it so much. The proc is hitting about 70-80's in game. So I will be picking up an H110 in the future. as well as new braided cables and lights for the case. will post pictures when its all done. The Card is stock no need to OC the thing in my experience so far in BF4 64 Player servers ultra with 2xAA I get 120+ FPS constant. Its a night and day difference compared to the previous setup! thumb.gif
