ZOTAC overclocked their card out of the box with a relatively small overclock compared to other cards we've reviewed so far.

reptile, the 295x2 shits on the 980 ti
this is the most fucking broken website
Why pay $400 to gain 1-10% more fps? SLI 3 980 Ti's and own a supercomputer for around 1/3 more cost over 1 Titan X.
not beyond a certain point. after that its just bells and whistles. just like high mp cameras but too slow chipsets so they cant process the data fast enough.
But their memory is an integral feature!
you dont test cars anywhere else than on the road because thats what cars are built to do. making artificial tests to show their strongest point, is pointless since it wont show in a real world condition.
*Then buys 980 ti and 1080 is revealed
not on a nvidia biased feed, ive noticed that the feeds with amd fans are alot less biased i mean seriously nvidia guys chill out
maybe we buy the cards that have more processing power for less money
completely agree with you man nvidia have a lot of spare money to use for research and development, AMD might have the GPU world for a bit while their cards make use of DX12 better then nvidia but i guarantee nvidia are working on it. my prediction is that by the end of the year nvidia cards will be optimised for DX12 and then everyone will be back to nvidia cards. i personally don't have a favourite GPU manufacturer, both of them are around the same, like in the end AMD bought out ATI so they have GPU's and CPU's to research, and they are doing all this with nowhere near as much money for research and development. AMD cars are just as good as nvidia cards, you have got to give AMD credit for giving nvidia a run for their money when they don't have as much money for research and development and i think you, Steve Bike are the first person to agree wiht me, reply if you want just wanted to say something i'm sick of people mocking AMD, or talking shit about nvidia
probably molested thats why hes so mentaly challenged now ive seen comatose victims talk more sense than him
This comparison is total BS!
This comment section is cancer
Well the card has 4 gb but 0.5 gb are just slower.
I've always used nvidia cards, that being said I hope AMD kicks nvidia's ass with Polaris. I just like the way AMD does business. They seem care a bit more about keeping things open source. For that matter, I hope they smash intel with zen because hey, we need some CPU competition again.
Tell that to the benchmarks showing mid-tier AMD cards beating the shit out of the Titan X
Yeah, obviously not an educated answer or even anything that made sense.
Obvious troll is obvious and yet all of you guys waste your time here on it...
WHATEVER I FUCKING WANT TO ;)
God you're horrible dude. What did you even just write?
*You're
ok ngreddia victim........? Send this to Amd an ngreedia now............you win a coockie...........man YOU"RE PATHETIC........ha ha
You admire a company that puts 8gb on a card that can't utilize it. Let me see you get a 390 up to 5gbs or more and keep a good frame rate. By the time you push the 390's VRAM that hard you're pushing a lot of other things on the card as well. By the time the 970 can't keep 60fps at 1080 it won't be a vram problem. Some guy earlier said his 380x was using more than 4gb on black ops 3 at ultra and his frame rate was stuttering. Mean while my 970 is getting 75-110 fps at the same game ultra with 3.5gb of memory, what does that say? That 3 series architecture has been exactly the same since AMD started making chips on 28NM, with the exception of HBM on the newer cards. And with your DX12 argument, of course AMD will score better earlier since they already had the mantle API ready to go that is very alike with DX12. Everyone got a boner over a shitty alpha Ashes benchmark and used it as the be all end all, set in stone performance on the new DX. You really think Nvidia doesn't have the money to develop better software and isn't working around the clock on it now? look at the difference in driver support. Come on dude, AMD has been riding the struggle bus for a while with like %10 market share. The head guy there left for Apple again I think.
Using X2 970 SC GPU's atm, only bought them to see me through until the end of 2016 (when the next Nvidia GPU's are released), and I WAS MORE THAN IMPRESSED, I have to say, had to replace my X2 Radeon Sapphire Toxic's, they were fine cards, but always messed up in the games I love to play the most. I 1st bought X2 390x's and they were (sorry to say) HORRIBLE! DSR 4k (basically upscaled 1080p), looks ****ing amazing, getting a constant 60fps in GTA V with everything in ultra, what's Ironic is that my AMD FX-9590 runs superb with Nvidia GPU's and runs like a total dog turd with Radeon's...
OMG the 980ti beats the Titan X? and far cheaper.
