    Default GTX 980Ti performance analysis in 2019

    I have recently been lucky enough to become an owner of this mighty fallen king . The specific model is MSI Lightning 980ti LE .
    With very limited time that i got , i did some testing and quick overclocking with this.
    I would like to share my experiences and benchmark results here mainly @over clocked.
    Back in their days , these beasts were released with very conservative clock speeds with a boost clock ranging from 1100mhz to 1200mhz, with a view to not disrupting their titan sales.
    An average 980ti would overclock to 1450 - 1510mhz @core pretty easily.
    So, from my point of view, it would be quite unfair to judge this card with their stock settings.

    SPECS:
    • Asus Rampage IV BE with Xeon E5 1650v2 @4.2ghz
    • 2X8 GB DDR3 Ram @ 2133mhz 11-13-13-37-2T
    • SSD Crucial MX500 500GB where the OS and tested game are installed.
    • GTX 980TI MSI Lightning LE Core @1499MHz VRam @4001mhz (hynix)

    For comparison i will provide data from youtube running gtx1080 @stock same settings with ryzen 1700x

    I will try to keep the thread updated. Now on mobile data with limited data left. So, extremely sorry for not being able to provide any images or links which might be relevant.
    But, a request to all members. Could u guys run the test with same settings and post results here plz.

    Back then I said this card would struggle with 1440p but people were saying this card is overkill for 1080p. But most good looking and graphically advanced games actually can't even maintain locked 60 fps even during gameplay. It's still possible to get locked 60 on some games at 1440p but then graphics have to be lowered to the point that it looks worse than 1080p on higher settings which runs smoother. Or in games that were designed to run at 60 fps on consoles runs fairly well at 1440p 60 fps on this card.



    I don't have Metro Exodus. But here's some RE2 benchmark:

    https://youtu.be/9p28vKQdBeo

    1080p, everything maxed [since it can handle it] except volumetric lighting to medium [gave performance boost while still looking great] and filmgrain, lens distortion off. Rendering mode was normal [progressive].

    I benchmarked almost the whole game. So you can benchmark any segment of the game you want and compare it. Got 99% locked 60 on this game so this is good enough.

    I've noticed that while giving suggestions, people underestimate the performance degradation of a gpu/cpu per year. Games have been getting more demanding of single-threaded perf as well as multiple threads, a bit more than I anticipated. As for gpus, ppl also underestimate the amount of VRAM needed. Remember when everyone said 2GB would be enough for a loooong time? The 7970 GHz edition/ R9 280X lived longer than its Nvidia counterpart becuz of the extra 1 GB of vram

    Yeah. And in the case of 980 Ti it's not even the VRAM that's affecting most. The card just doesn't have enough raw power to handle the games smoothly at 1440p. Even good looking games from 2016 and before struggled on this card like RoTR, ACU and Arkham Knight [But maybe it's for my hdd in this case since other some people got better performance in that game], Witcher 3 etc.

    Maybe when they say it will give 1440p 60 fps, they mean potato looking games or remastered old gen games like GTA V [which looks good on Seventh gen console standards but is not that impressive compared to real 8th gen games].

    And I knew 2 GB was going to be bogus right from the start, because a base Ps4 has 8GB unified memory so if games require, it could split 3-5 GB or even 4-4 GB to get good looking textures. Now on those Fermi cards, people have to either play with low res textures and on some cases pixelated shadows. Maybe the cards will have less issues on a ddr4 16 GB RAM SSD equipped pc but who knows how much will that help.

    ssd prices have come down quite a bit, i recommend getting one

    What is 8th gen games? Or 7th gen consoles?
    And are u using ur 980ti overclocked?
    What about ur cpu? It might has something to do with perfofmance cap.

    GPU isn't overclocked.
    i7 6700k, DDR4 2400MHz RAM, 7200 RPM Hdd.


    8th gen consoles= PS4/Xbox One/Wii U
    7th gen consoles= Xbox 360/Ps3

    So that means when I say a game looks like 7th gen game, I mean it looks like a game from Ps3 gen. Simple as that.

    there"s no need to be that depressed bro. nope games doesnt look like it is running like ps3.
    not even ps4. A 980ti should atleast look like ps4 pro gfx in games. first of all they run most games [email protected] or [email protected] so, this is an advantage for 980ti.
    And just for example, gta 5 (yeah an old game but still looks stunning when all setting are maxed) , looks wayyyy better than ps3 and also ps4 with better fps on 980ti.
    and please overclock it, it will be a completely tier gpu. i promise.

    And bro, could u please run the metro at the above mentioned settings please , so that i could compare?
    and what clock is it hovering around in games? so that i can get an idea?

    You completely missed my point. Let me explain what I really meant by classifying the games in xxth gen:

    Obviously games will always look better on PC and run smoother than consoles. But the core graphics of the game doesn't change that much. GTA V might look good but it only looks like an enhanced Ps3 game with high res textures and foliage, etc. This is the reason why a 980 Ti can handle the game with ease.

    Proper 8th gen games that were built to run on 8th gen consoles like ps4 looks better than 7th gen games and these games are also the ones that gives a hard time on PC GPUs that are competing alongside 8th gen consoles. Obviously these 8th gen games on PC still looks better than consoles due to extra power of the GPUs.



    About clock speed, it's around 1200 MHz as you can see on that benchmark video.

    And no. I'm not overclocking my GPU.


    I'm not depressed though. I don't know where you got that idea from. I just shared my benchmarks on a game I got in case you need it. And that's about it.

    gta V is a very bad example to sample a game to compare on benchmarks , i would rather compare ps 4 version of assassins creed origin with a 980ti both of them have very different view in terms of texture and performance and even on ps4 on 4k games are lagging these days (metro exodus and anthem) so basically it is an uneven comparison when in pc atleast you can play game smoothly without any lag or freeze
