I think there's a gain, a decent one at that!
Significantly better floating-point performance - 4,358 GFLOPS vs 3,189 GFLOPS
Higher effective memory clock speed - 7,012 MHz vs 5,012 MHz
Higher pixel rate - 78 GPixel/s vs 66.4 GPixel/s
More shading units - 2,048 vs 1,536
More texture mapping units - 128 vs 96
Higher memory clock speed - 1,753 MHz vs 1,253 MHzGames / Benches:
Significantly better PassMark score - 9,755 vs 5,671
Better 3DMark06 score - 17,292 vs - 12,562
Better 3DMark vantage graphics score - 45,345.5 vs 34,695
Better 3DMark 11 graphics score 32,943 vs 26,811
Higher bioshock infinite framerate - 107 fps vs 89.9 fps
Higher crysis 3 framerate - 60.55 fps vs 43.25 fps
Higher FarCry 3 framerate - 66.4 fps vs 51.55 fps
I think that's a decent jump in performance! Though if he can wait, I'd wait for the 1070, lower power and heat as well as most probably paying for the same price!
I'd also try to look for a second hand 980 Ti as recommended earlier (if OP can't wait), now that would be an even bigger jump!Edited by mark_thaddeus - 6/18/16 at 5:01pm
