Zotac AMP vs Gigabyte gaming GTX 980 Ti

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
There are 2 cards that I can buy:

Gigabyte gaming GTX 980 Ti - 1190MHz, 1291 boost, I've heard it's easy to oc it
Zotac amp GTX 980 Ti (not extreme) - 1051MHz, 1140 boost, didn't heard too much about this version

Zotac is about 60$ cheaper than gigabyte, I have 3440x1440 display - which one should I buy? Is there a big difference between them?

Imo zotac, even if gigabyte is more well known, its quality may not always be the best.
Donr worry about the noise also, you will be able to reduce the fan speed without overheating.

Also if you were going to accept the price of the figabyte card, maybe you should look into a more 'extreme' (literally') version of the zotac if you plan on ocing (useless the card was just overclocked wirh no pcb modification.)

Well, I will play on 3440 x 1440 with it 2500k, so I would go with box zotac as it's much cheaper and I wouldn't want to go into oc if I'll have some decent FPS... So, is this a good choice in this setup? Will I have enough FPS in games like witcher 3?

Or will gigabyte get me more FPS?

it's the same GPU really (980 ti), there is maybe a tiny tiny difference between the 2 (maybe compare the 2 reviews i reckon the games were the same) but absolutely not worth $60, not even $5. (also this difference can be nullified by a tiny tiny oc too).

witcher 3 easy (until 4k)

Thanks for saving my money, I'm buying zotac then!
post #6 of 11
Zotac looks good, although I'd be buying the omega or extreme version if I wanted a triple fan card. All in all you can't go wrong with aftermarket 980Ti's so congratulations on your new purchase.
And there are no better or worse versions for OC, all depends on luck of the draw. I had 980 G1 which could not go past 1450Mhz even with extra voltage, while my MSI 980Ti Gaming hits 1510Mhz stable with no added mV.

oh too bad, BTW isn't it the higher clocks that allow the maxwell series to outperform the kepler ? how would a 780 ti at the same clocks perform against a 980 ti ?

well you can easily see that comparing reference 980Ti with overclocked 780 Ti like classified. 980Ti will still pull ahead massively. It's not only the clocks, 96 ROPs on 980Ti vs 48 on 780Ti is twice as much. Much better tesselatoin performance too. Generally Maxwell is just an improved architecture.
btw such comparisons are useless. most 980Ti break 1500MHz on air. I think 780Ti's max out around 1300.

Could you enlighten me about the role of the ROPs and how the tess performance has been enhanced ?

Oh c'mon, it's not because something seems useless that you don't do it (ie gaming indtead of working, with a strict literal point of view)

I really dont see why people preffer aircooled 980ti or whatever card for that matter, the AIO cooled options tend to be only a little bit more expensive, yet managing to keep temps in the 50s while heavily oc-d.
Like the EVGA GTX 980Ti Hybrid a really nice choice, and the only AIO cooled card I would buy the 3 other 980TI-s that I know of look like crap compared to the hybrid thumb.gif
