Đánh giá gtx 980ti

Today we’re revisiting the GeForce GTX 980 Ti khổng lồ see how it stacks up lớn the newly released RTX 2060 và GTX 1660 Ti, particularly in more recent titles such as Apex Legends, Resident Evil 2 và Far Cry New Dawn. Of course, while the GTX 1660 Ti sells for $280 & the RTX 2060 is $350, the GTX 980 Ti was much more expensive at $650 at launch.

The GTX 980 Ti is now four years old, so you’d expect new GPUs around half the price lớn deliver a similar level of performance... or bởi they?

Whereas the 980 Ti packs 2816 CUDA cores, the RTX 2060 has 32% fewer cores and the 1660 Ti 45% fewer cores. But those Turing cores are wider, allowing them lớn exeđáng yêu more instructions, and they’re also clocked higher. The Nvidia spec for the 980 Ti calls for a boost clock of 1075 MHz. This gives the RTX 2060 a 56% cloông chồng tốc độ advantage, và the GTX 1660 Ti a 65% clock tốc độ advantage.

The Turing GPUs also feature higher clocked GDDR6 memory, so even though the RTX 2060 has a 192-bit memory bus opposed lớn the much wider 384-bit bus of the 980 Ti, the faster memory makes up for the difference, so both have sầu the same 336 GB/s memory bandwidth. The 1660 Ti has been downgraded khổng lồ 288 GB/s with its 12 Gbps memory, but as we’ve learned already, this doesn"t cripple it much.

Earlier this year in our "Ultimate Guide lớn Buying a Used Graphics Card" we found the average selling price of an used GTX 980 Ti was $235. We took a look again at completed eBay listings when we were working on this article and that price remains accurate.

So that makes this comparison all the more interesting... if you would consider it, should you get the 980 Ti for around $235 or buy a br& new GTX 1660 Ti for $280? To find out we grabbed our Core i9-9900K kiểm tra system, installed the 980 Ti và got benchmarking. We tested 33 games in total but we"ll be discussing the results for a dozen of them before looking at the summary và performance breakdown graphs. All testing took place at 1440p, và while we are using a reference thẻ, we overclocked it 1190 MHz, allowing it to lớn hold a typical boost cloông xã of 1.3 GHz. With those notes out of the way, let’s get inlớn the results.


Benchmarks

Rather than limiting this test khổng lồ a dozen or so titles, we wanted lớn alặng for at least 30. This gives us a fuller perspective of how the older Maxwell GPU stacks up & how performance in older games compare to recently released ones. We mention this because lớn chạy thử such a massive sầu range of games, it didn"t make sense to invest twice as much time testing the 980 Ti at different cloông chồng rates. In choosing to go with either the Nvidia spec or an aggressive factory overclochồng, we went with the latter. For the most part the overclocked configuration offers 10% performance, with gains as large as 15% seen under certain conditions.

Our first demo Metro Exodus was the only game in which we included the stochồng 980 Ti result as a reference. Here we see that the overclochồng provided a 9% performance boost, which is decent.

The 980 Ti goes from being slightly slower than the GTX 1070 khổng lồ slightly faster. This reference point serves us well và it"s usually what would find on the higher-end AIB models, such as Gigabyte"s Gaming G1 for example.

The overclocked 980 Ti performs extremely well in Shadow of the Tomb Raider, beating the GTX 1070 by a few frames to come in just 2fps down on the 1660 Ti and 1070 Ti.

*

Moving on we find that Forza Horizon 4 is a good game lớn include in this comparison as it utilizes modern GPU architectures really well. The GTX 980 Ti was only able lớn match the Radeon RX 590, making it ~10% slower than the 1660 Ti và RTX 2060.

*


Next up we have sầu Just Cause 4 & here the GTX 980 Ti came in just behind the GTX 1070 và 1660 Ti. Nothing that unusual about these results, so let’s move sầu on.

*

Firing up Resident Evil 2 we see that the overclocked 980 Ti is able lớn roughly match the GTX 1660 Ti, making it 16% slower than the RTX 2060.

*

Testing with Hitman 2 saw the 980 Ti match the GTX 1660 Ti while it was 14% slower than the RTX 2060 và 16% slower than Vega 56. Still a pretty solid result for the old Maxwell GPU.

*

Fortnite uses the Unreal Engine 4 và this game engine is very familiar with the Pascal architecture.

Here the overclocked 980 Ti just edged out both the GTX 1070 và 1660 Ti to come in just behind the GTX 1070 Ti và not much slower than the RTX 2060. It also beat AMD’s Vega 56 by a 6% margin.

*

The GTX 980 Ti performs really well relative khổng lồ the Pascal competition, beating the 1070 by a few frames. That said, Turing performs very well in this title & as such as the 980 Ti was 10% slower than the 1660 Ti and 22% slower than the RTX 2060.

When testing with Battlefield V we see that the overclocked GTX 980 Ti is on par with the GTX 1070 và we also find much the same when comparing it khổng lồ the GTX 1660 Ti.

The 980 Ti was 14% slower than a typical AIB version of the RTX 2060, not a massive margin but given the Maxwell GPU used lớn phối us baông chồng $650, the fact that we’re not getting more performance for just $350 is good news.

*

Although it’s gone through several major updates, World of Tanks is still a very old game at its core. It’s also well optimized for older GPU architectures and Nvidia has made sure their older GPUs still perform as they should in this popular title. In the case of the 980 Ti that means delivering GTX 1070 Ti-lượt thích performance making it 16% faster than the 1660 Ti và just 6% slower than the RTX 2060.

*

Apex Legends is one of the newest games we"re testing and as you can see the overclocked GTX 980 Ti falls just short of the GTX 1070, behind the GTX 1660 Ti, và massively behind the RTX 2060.

The gap to lớn Pascal isn’t too big but the more complex Turing architecture provides a significant performance uplift here, especially if we were to lớn compare GPUs with similar core counts.

*

The last game in this round is Far Cry New Dawn. Here the overclocked 980 Ti matched the stoông xã GTX 1070 và 1660 Ti with an average of 74 fps. It was 15% slower than the RTX 2060, though I’m not suggesting that makes the budget RTX option a worthwhile nâng cấp for current 980 Ti owners... it is not.

Individual Matchups

GTX 980 Ti vs. GTX 1070

As we’ve sầu found time và time again in the past, the GTX 980 Ti and GTX 1070 deliver basically the same performance. At the stoông xã Nvidia spec the 1070 is generally a little faster và with both overclocked to the max they are also very cthua, though the 980 Ti generally does a little better overall thanks khổng lồ its huge degree of overclocking headroom.

*

GTX 980 Ti vs. Vega 56

For the most part we found the stochồng Vega 56 beating the 980 Ti. On average the old GeForce GPU was 7% slower on average with only 5 games where the 980 Ti won by a 5% margin or better. But given what you typically pay for one of these things on the used market, they are often a better choice for budget conscious shoppers.

*


GTX 980 Ti vs. GTX 1660 Ti

Overall the venerable 980 Ti was a whisker faster, edging the budget Turing GPU by a mere 2% margin. Of course, while we used a stoông xã MSI GTX 1660 Ti Gaming X, the 980 Ti was overclocked. That said, you can only squeeze about 5-10% more out of the 1660 Ti anyway. It’s still great khổng lồ see we’re finally getting GTX 980 Ti levels of performance for under $300.

*

GTX 980 Ti vs. RTX 2060

Even with the overcloông xã boost the 980 Ti can"t hang with a stoông chồng RTX 2060. On average the Maxwell part was 12% slower, but we also saw instances where it was đôi mươi to lớn 25% slower, for example in Assassin"s Creed Odyssey, Rainbow Six Siege, Wolfenstein II và Apex Legends.

Bottom Line

The once mighty GeForce GTX 980 Ti is now a match for a sub-$300 GPU, only took about 4 years. If you dropped $650 on a 980 Ti all those years ago and you still have it today, gaming at 1440p, then it’s fair to lớn say you got your money"s worth.

Evidently for such a person the GTX 1660 Ti and RTX 2060 won’t warrant an tăng cấp, as that would be more of a side-grade. That said, if you’re a $650 GPU kind of shopper then it was unlikely these mid-range offerings were ever going lớn entice you. For that you’re probably after an RTX 2080 -- in titles such as Metro Exodus you’d been looking at just over a 60% performance boost, which is way more significant.

Now, if you’re tossing up between buying a new GTX 1660 Ti or a used GTX 980 Ti... while you could potentially save around $50 by buying the 980 Ti (used price hovers around $235), there’s always the possibility that you might have sầu lớn pay more for a good Mã Sản Phẩm. Alternatively, if you’re willing to lớn bide your time, you could manage khổng lồ get one for even less. There’s a bit of an art khổng lồ buying second hand, but no matter how good you are there are still some unavoidable pitfalls.

Obviously the 980 Ti is an old hàng hóa now, so there will be no warranty involved. The risk for $50 savings doesn’t seem worth it. There’s also the issue of driver support. Without question the GTX 1660 Ti is going khổng lồ age better moving forward with game specific optimizations.

All in all, the GTX 980 Ti has aged well và today it’s still capable of delivering an enjoyable 1440p gaming experience. Ask any enthusiast & that"s saying a lot.
