its a very bold statement when you can easily see that a oc'ed 980ti(a custom model they tested) is more then 10 frames faster in the same 2 game tests against this fury card oc'ed and about 1k points higher in the fsu test....that is going by the review used in this 1st post and the same site for the 980 ti card

Certainly at max OC the 980Ti is faster but at a 20% increase in cost. Besting a stock 980Ti given the Fury's price is still a good value...

To this day, there has never been a time when I would have even considered buying a GTX 980. It has been terrible value for money all its life. I would consider both the Fury and the Nano to be better value, but still not great. Overclocked those basically match a Fury X, a good Fury might get slightly ahead. So considering that the cards to buy for anyone looking for value for money are R9 390, GTX 980Ti and for certain purposes maybe the GTX 970 and the R9 390X, it blows my mind just how much bickering there has been in this thread. I would have thought no one cares, really. redface.gif

I think the 980s value for money went up oddly enough when the fury came out.

Well when the 390X and Fury Non X exist... I see no reason to buy a 980. I do see reason in the GTX 950 and the 980 TI, but not in other Nvidia GPUs.

I said this same exact thing when the 980 launched. It was the new "flagship" card and it didn't even beat the OG Titan and 780Ti. You would have to have been crazy to "upgrade" from a 780Ti to a 980...

Wait are you saying the 980 wasn't faster than the 780 ti when it released?

I remember the 980 taking a back seat to the 970 cause the 970 was basically as good as the previous gen Titan. That card turned the GPU world upside down. It's since been shadowed by its own RAM gate shenanigans however.

It didn't, not significantly anyway. I was pretty big into the benching section at the time and it was quite a while before all the old Titan and 780Ti numbers started to get pushed down the charts...
