[WCCF] AMD RX 480 Rivals R9 Nano, GTX 980 - Page 18

post #171 of 410
Most people do not care for Fermi, but as a person that used an ATI 5770 successfully for 7 years with all games, Fermi still matters to me.

So yeah:
https://www.reddit.com/r/darksouls3/comments/4efemc/if_you_are_using_a_500_series_nvidia_card/

I think even older gen GPUs need be supported, especially if you want to really keep the "best drivers and support" title. And your fans on a budget or older GPUs happy tongue.gif

*In this case I think it is just lack of support, nothing malicious... but the effects can be seen and they do matter.

So one game issue that was fixed with a patch? More proof please since you are making the claim.

Agreed 100%. I have been as disappointed as anyone with Nvidia's ambivalence towards high end Kepler owners such as myself (especially given the massive price we were asked to pay for our cards at the time) but I have yet to run across any scenario in my personal testing where my cards have actually LOST performance from years ago. They just don't get any more improvements with driver releases anymore while Maxwell cards gain every time. This could be for many reasons but I do believe that Nvidia operates on the mantra that the only products they care about are their current ones and that anything sold before that is simply unimportant.

That being said, I don't consider this gimping, though it would be nice to see their support go back farther than a single generation for some gaming optimization.

I didn't think Kepler had been legacy'd yet has it?

Tired of waiting for my FTW 1080 or any custom 1080 for that matter. My new z170 mobo I just got on sale only supports crossfire. Dare I go 2 x 480 8GB's over 1 1080? Been awhile since I went ATI/AMD.

I think two 480's will absolutely be faster than a 1080, at least in games with good CF support. That's the rub though, you will be subject to all the inherent issues with multi-GPU setups. I personally ONLY run multi-GPU and have never had any real issue doing so but others will only consider single card solutions. It just comes down to what you are comfortable with.

Are you sticking with your TX's? What's your next move?

I actually have OG Titans and have stuck with them since March 2013. There is nothing on the horizon that makes me feel like a change is necessary yet. For the money I paid, these cards are going to last me a loooooong time! tongue.gif

Good cards you got there. Probably max out anything @1440p. I should go 2 480's just to save cash and make it easier to sell once the big cards come out.

I understand but you have to keep in mind that GTX980 Ti is still only 1 years old. I expect full driver/enhancement/optimization for at least 2-3 years. Not doing them is literally gimping.

I run every game I own at max settings (even max MSAA) at 1440P and my good old Titans have no issue. Plus they still have plenty of VRAM for 1440P as well. It will be somewhat deflating to see $200 RX480's stomping the performance of my $2000 Titans in the benches but such is the way of things when you hang onto a card for 3+ years...
