This train of thought is incorrect when you are simply trying to see how gpu's stack up. Why bother intentionally limiting performance?Exactly, these kinds of comparisons are essentially meaningless without a realistic matching cpu.
That's mainly due to GNC being in current gen consoles, so the underlining code for a lot of modern games still suits old GNC Radeon cards. AMD fine wine indeed.Tough to see 780ti so low, used to faster than a 290 at release and later a GTX 970 Traded blows
Obviously Nvidia has totally forgotten about 700 series owners
Foil hat removed, I understand AMD’s more core architecture is the real difference maker here. Just means these old 290’s and 390’s are awesome value if you have a big enough power supply for them
I made a mention of that in another bench article. It is well known that Nvidia stops optimizing the older products so they fall further and further down.Fascinating how AMD cards age significantly better than NVIDIA cards do. Either it's NVIDIA failing to support older hardware with optimized drivers while AMD does, or perhaps AMD's architecture is simply more future proof.
And thats a near factory clocked 980ti, add another 40O hmz or so overclock and imagine what its putting down. They overclock like a mofo, too bad they dont support adaptive sync, I would have never moved to a 1070It is amazing how much the 980 Ti holds up even today, especially at 1080P.
My lowly 780 Ti isn't doing so well. :-(
