This new, Maxwell-exclusive anti-aliasing technique improves edge quality with a minimal performance cost.<br><br><br>
MFAA's image quality and performance improvements make it the perfect solution for high-resolution gaming experiences, where every frame counts. On average, MFAA can deliver similar edge quality to MSAA with 30% faster frame rates.<br><br>
DirectX 10 and DirectX 11 introduced gamers to tessellation, which features heavily in many PC games, increasing the quality of characters, game worlds, objects, and much, much more. On NVIDIA GPUs, tessellation processing is handled by the Polymorph Engine, and with Maxwell we've upgraded its hardware to version 3.0.</div>

Oh man I should have done this ages ago, the week I was doing this I went on holiday and I got pretty distracted and entirely forgot, I'll try and get this done during this month hopefully.<br><br><a class="spoiler-link H-spoiler-toggle" href="#"><strong>Warning: W.I.P</strong> <span class="spoiler-help">(Click to show)</span></a><div class="spoiler-hidden"><span style="font-size:16px;"><a class="bbcode_url" href="http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2014-nvidia-geforce-gtx-970-review" target="_blank">EuroGamer: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 review</a></span><br><br><br>
Performed using the 344.75 driver.<br>
Using the 347.09 driver I've noticed that performance is improved within Tomb Raider, however I'm using the 344.74 driver so the performance isn't different from EuroGamer's own tests.<br><br><br>
GPU: Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX 970<br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/2307766/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="2307766" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/2307766/width/200/height/400/flags/LL" style="; width: 200px; height: 252px"></a><br><br>
After experimenting with overclocking and looking at various other reviews I've found out how to match GTX 980 performance with a GTX 970.<br>
EuroGamer were able to push their GTX 970 over GTX 980 performance thanks to their higher memory clocks which I was unable to achieve as I haven't been able to clock my memory to 8GHz.<br><br>
In these tests I'll be using two resolutions, 1080p and 1440p(and 2160p for Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor as I was unable to select 1440p), the aim is to match stock GTX 980 performance under both 1080p and 1440p.<br><br>
To attain this a GTX 970 will need to have both decent clocking memory and core, I am doing this on stock voltage and stock bios, however those who wish to replicate this may be unable to reach the clocks I do as every card is different and no overclock is guaranteed.<br><br>
"What if I can't overclock to GTX 980 performance?"<br>
Don't worry if you can't, just OC your card to what you are happy with or simply don't at all, at stock these cards are really powerful anyway.<br><br><br><span style="font-size:12px;"><a class="bbcode_url" href="http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2014-nvidia-geforce-gtx-970-review" target="_blank">EuroGamer: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 review</a></span><br><br>

I really didn't expect this level of performance out of the GTX 970, I'm seeing cards like the MSI Gaming and the G1 Gaming go toe to toe with the 780 Ti...</div>

Just read a post where someone is hitting over 1500mhz!

I expected this level of performance from the 970. I did not expect this price level for it. I thought it would have been around 400 for the 970. Nvidia's pricing strat at launch is usually to launch cards of similiar performance at a premium over AMD cards. AMD's R9s were very good and nvidia knew they had to price aggressively. I actually thought i would just wait for used 290s to plummet and instead got a 970.

Bought two of the blower-type GTX 970s direct from EVGA at like 3AM last night lol: <a href="http://www.evga.com/Products/Product.aspx?pn=04G-P4-1970-KR" target="_blank">http://www.evga.com/Products/Product.aspx?pn=04G-P4-1970-KR</a><br><br>
They called me around noon today to confirm my order and let me know they would be shipping out today, very cool.<br><br>
Can't wait to officially join the club!<br><br>
BTW, anyone seen any GTX 670 SLI vs. GTX 970 SLI benches? I'm hoping for a huge increase at 4K, because the 670s just don't cut it at that res.

Whats about watercoolers? so people with a watercooled system can only buy reference cards?<br><br>
Which reference card do you recommend? Is this one a reference card?<br><br>

are people required to have cards in their possession to join to club, or will an order invoice suffice? <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif">
