    I just gotta say I'm surprised at all the reviews that complained about the small lead the 980 had over the 780 ti in performance. When you look at the 980 compared to the the 780, the performance blows it away and I'd be really surprised if Nvidia doesn't pull a 980 ti version at the beginning of next year. As much as I've loved AMD with the switch I made to the 7970 I got, I'm having a real hard time finding anything to keep me away from Nvidia this time around. The only way is if AMD responds with something impressive this thursday or before November!

    Thanks for posting. I like the Techpowerup final conclusion:
    ...but users of older cards should definitely look at NVIDIA's new products. Oh, and AMD seems f*cked..
    (couldn't help it, I'm Nvidia fan.)

    Always look beyond the limits...

    True. The 980 is just a bit better in the performance. But wen compared to the 780Ti in price. You cant go wrong.

    Another good review of 980 and 970:
    Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 and 980 reference review - Introduction
    Yeah, the performance improvements over GTX 780Ti is not that much, but price, power consumption and TDP are much lower, but in another hand if I have GTX780 or 780Ti I also have the adequate PSU to feed it. I think will keep my 2 GTX780 (SLI), and wait to see if Nvidia will launch 980Ti or just wait for GTX 1000...

    Always look beyond the limits...

    It is surprising and doesn't make much sense. The 980 is priced as, and targeted as a 780 replacement. How do you complain when the release outperforms a card higher in the line at a lower price point with less power usage and better temps? Maybe they assume the 980 will be the forever flagship in this gen, with no 980 Ti? Because, yeah....nVidia wouldn't be holding that piece back until they see what AMD does, right?

    Agreed. In fact, that's exactly what they did with tht 780 ti, waited for the 290x release.

    This will be an excellent replacement (HD6950 for GTX980) , regarding to my 2GPUs (GTX780), not so.
