Indeed it does but that's not the only factor involved.

You cant compare across architectures like that. A 290x (edit not non x redface.gif) has 768 more streaming cores then a GTX 980, while the 980 has half the memory bus width. Yet we can see across a wide range of games at stock speeds the GTX 980 is faster. If you compare max overclock the 980 its faster still. Similarly the GTX 970 has much less CUDA cores then a GTX 780, yet the 970 is a bit faster. Because they have different architectures.

You can check out any review site in games, TPU is good, Hardware Canucks, Hard OCP are my favourites at the moment. I also like Techspots game bechmarks when they do them. Its the only way to compare relative performance because the numbers on the paper only tell a part of the performance story thumb.gif

Lets not crap on OPs thread to much, if you want to PM me to continue a discussion feel free.

Thanks guys, I went with the 780ti. Hopefully this hold me until pascal.

Reasons for the 780ti
- Gives 970 performance or better at a cheaper cost
- The 290x was sold lol
- AMD hasn't been optimized properly for Project Cars as yet

They were all good cards...

Project CARS is lots of fun. tongue.gif
