780 is to 980 is to? - Page 2

post #11 of 21
I also went from a 780 to a 980 ti and I was blown away by the performance jump:

780:
http://www.3dmark.com/fs/4443370
Graphics Score: 11412


980 Ti:
http://www.3dmark.com/fs/4996255
Graphics Score 19423


and looking at the detailed scores my FPS doubling from upgrading.

I'd say its worth it buying a 980 Ti coming from a 780, especially if you can find one for a deal.

at 1080p I can max pretty much all games out there out. the 780 is really held back with the 3GB of VRAM. I noticed this on Dying light when I got the 980M in my laptop and the 980M was outperforming my 780 in that game... and the GPU in the 780 was faster but it was memory starved by the 3GB of VRAM.

The 980 is not the card you want if you want a card now, the 980 ti is... the 980 was not made to replace the 780, it was made to replace the 770/680. The 980 ti was for the 780.

However regarding this part
How is that possible? I was able to run FEAR at 3360x2100 with constant 60fps on a gtx 660.

I didn't realize there was an issue with HID and the original FEAR. It can occur when randomly but it can go from 60fps to 8 fps if you have some Logitech hardware. I read up on it and disabled anything with a hardware id of 46 in it in my hid devices and I stopped having the slow downs - I did that and set the game to do a full save during section changes. You get the black screen for about 1 second but at least I haven't had the slowdown since.

One thing I'm thinking about between the 980ti and whatever comes next, I imagine the next will have the newest hdmi and display port connectors.

Ahhh - curse them for not being more forthcoming about their next card smile.gif If I knew for sure that the next card wasn't coming out until next year I'd be OK with buying a card today. But if a new one is only 6 months away I could wait.

The 980 level of GPU should be out within the next 6 months.

Has the 1080 (Or whatever it's called) as coming out in June. How accurate that is, not sure. Makes sense though.

I'd wait if you're worried about buyers remorse. The 970/980 have been out for almost a year and a half by this point.

Buy a 980ti, the replacement for that has at least a year.

I'd buy the TI if it had more VRAM. I don't want to buy a new card again next year. I think I'll want at least 8GB ideally more on my next video card.

Then buy a TX and be happy with 12GB.

Yeah the Titan X has enough memory but it seems like you are paying $650 for 6GB of memory. I have a hard time justifying $100 per gig memory. If the Titan X had 2 980 TI processors and 24GB of memory 12GB per processor, I would probably actually get one but otherwise it really seems like a ripoff based on the performance.

Ok, so what are you using now? What task do you need so much memory for anyhow?

I recently sold my 980 Ti G1 Gaming and went back to my 780 Ti at 1440p because (35-40% faster than the 780 Ti) I didn't feel the performance bump. Sure most games are smoother but not to the extent that blew me away.
