With new very good drivers now these games run much faster ,nvidia sux in every vulkan/dx12 games, they stuck in past no innovations just bought tech from others like 3dfx, ageia physx... lost in courts to amd alot of times (same story with intel they act like scammers too and lost courts) because doing business not fair , bribing companies to sell only their products, bribing game developers to make nvidia baked gpus work faster on their games,company of scammers who not bring anything new just sitting on old tech and waiting when some poor company invent something new to buy it, still bribing amd technicians to bring them on their side to steal amd secrets , wish more fair companies will come to gpu market like matrox and others for fair competition, also 3dmark is nvidia baked benchmark software from the beginning, I love amd innovations, not all are sucesful but who not trying not making anything and i not deal with cheaters like nvidia, i support amd geeks who inventing something new with passion. Im proud of amd new cpus and apus , intel is far behind with 2x more prices for slower cpus.

is it good to buy 2560x1440 monitor on gtx 1060
Nathan Kam (1 year ago)
Tito Puležan the 1060 will struggle to play all 2017 AAA titles at high settings. If you're ok with medium or low settings then maybe. But id recommend at least a 1070 if you're looking for a decent 1440p experience. The 1060 is meant for 1080p

Glad I bought the 390x a year ago. Was far cheaper than the 980, so it turned out to be the better deal.
Jason Giles (1 year ago)
So is the R9 390x at it's reduced price better than the RX 480? The newer card requires much less power and cost just about the same, but is it a better performer?

390x here cost $300-480.. while gtx 980 cost $500-680... so, easy pick I guess.

Longgshot (2 years ago)
Project cars shouldn't be in the benchmarks, since it's a game heavily based on physx and build from the start all around that. And since it's a propietary tech that is heavily locked, it skews the results, it doesn't matter if AMD would release a card 10 times more powerful than the fastest Nvidia card, it will still lose in that game because of that reason.

Whats with AOTS not rendering effects/snow on Nvidia Cards? Whats with the DX12 "Wrapper" for ROTTR which is actually slower then the DX11 render path? Also there was a huge price gap between these 2 cards all along.

PCars and Assassins Creed are very broken games and shouldn't be used for Benchmarking.
GL HF (2 years ago)
Consider the fact that you can get a 390x with very good cooler design from newegg for $310(go check now), and the fact that gcn has better asynchronous compute and better long term driver support, there is virtually no reason to go for a 980. Better yet, just wait for rx480
Krzych (2 years ago)
Overall they are equal, but 390X is much cheaper and has two times more memory, so I would choose it over 980. I sold my 980Ti for very good price 2 weeks before price cut and I want AMD card now to utilize FreeSync and 75Hz on my monitor, so if RX480 is not good enough then I will get 390X as temporary card until Vega is out, will be enough to push 3440x1440 outside of AAA games.
TheBabbage78 (2 years ago)
You'll probably be able to get a 390X for a pretty sweet price after the 480 launches.
toumobits (2 years ago)
Can you use DOOM, Dark Souls 3, Overwatch, Total War WARHAMMER or something else? I mean they're not supper demanding but it gives a better representation of what people want to play these days.

Dawei Tao (2 years ago)
no you cannot. There is only one game which might work which is Ashes of the singularity. In DX12 mode two different GPUs can work together, but if the power difference is too great then it would make things worse.

The last time I was this early, the 980 was on top of the 390X, now its the other way around!
Andarus (2 years ago)
I would not buy any of these Cards and I own a 980 myself. The 390x is just horrible and is pretty much the loudest and hottest card on the market. And the 980 isn't bad but for its price you can almost get a 1070!
TheVanillatech (2 years ago)
You have to remember that ... the GTX980 came out at £450 or thereabouts. The GTX970 was at that time £290 also. But the 390 came out (six months later) at just £240, and the 390X arrived at only £350. Which made them, pound for pound, the kings of performance. And that was in the Gameworks heavy era. These days the 390 / 390X rape the 970 / 980 in terms of price / performance.
Jonathan Tessier (2 years ago)

+TheVanillatech AMD shill detected. What does the shitty 970 have anything to do with 980 completely destroying the 390x and even competing and sometimes winning against Fury/Nano LMAO. I wish AMD were smart enough to at least buy intelligent shills.
TheVanillatech (2 years ago)
+The WrATH Whoah ... WAIT a moment! Are you talking about the dropping of the 970 price SINCE the last 2 weeks? It's a 1.5 year old card and the price didn't budge an inch. SURE you can find NOW one or two deals of the last remaining 970's with a massive discount because they are selling them all off. It's end of life for the product. I WAS talking about the situation for the last 12 months since the 390 and 390X came to market. Not cherry picking either, to support some bullshit argument or agenda. I selected AVERAGES and portrayed them as unbiased FACT. For example, only the last week has the 980Ti been dropped in price. Since it came out at over £600, it stayed ABOVE £500 until one week ago. Right? You cherry picking moron! XD You need to try a lot better than that, this is afterall the INTERNET with all the proof of what I said being absolute concrete FACT, yes? :D Did you forget about that? That this is the internet? And when the RRP of the GTX1070 is at $379, in what world was the PROMISED price of the 1070 not what I said it was? Again, you stupid fucker, you wade into a debate while knowing NOTHING about it and think that cherry picking a very recent price drop / one off special deal can support your bullshit argument. IT CAN'T! XD You lose, moron.
weiya (2 years ago)
you're all either blind fanboys raging just to fit in, or have no idea about those GPUs whatsoever. 980 destroys 390x and it's not even close, the bench on DF is just an illusion that has little to no RL relevance since 390x can barely be OC'd at all as it's already pushed to the max out of the box whereas the 980 has HUGE OC headroom. Remember they're using reference cards for benches, so you will never see a 980 as slow as the one shown here since you can only get aftermarket models but the aftermarket 390x are barely oc'd at all due to my previous statement and are still about stock level performance. 980 max oc'd even beats Fury oc'd (which again, has no headroom for OC) in tons of games. To make a realistic estimate, use those numbers of the bench and consider the 390x maxed and add 20% to the 980s fps. What happens? It pulls even with the 390x even in AMD favored games, destroys the 390x in neutral games and cannibalizes the 390x in nVidia favored games. Basically 390x OC= 390 OC with negligible difference otherwise, 980 OC >= Fury OC, never mind Fury stock. Fury X is the only AMD GPU of AMD that's generally better than the 980. RX 480 is gonna be a much better deal than either of the two obviously and neither 390x nor 980 owners need to upgrade to this (1080 is the lowest I'd go but 1080 TI/Vega makes more sense), but objectively speaking, 980 owners have the better card.

+Detmer The MSI on overclockersuk has 5 reviews all good and I have heard a lot about it, does look cool as well although I don't really give a shit about how it looks xD £420 isn't too bad, the same msi but 1080 version is £649, I will save £230 when the 1080 probably won't make much difference anyway. I've had the 770 for like 3 years I think the msi 1070 should do for another thanks.
21st Century (2 years ago)
+BrotherO4 I have a 1440p monitor 60hz so just 60 fps really (put vsync on the other day and didn't realise it made it better) And I have a 770 so really can't wait for a new one. I play Battlefield 4, bought Hardline the other day for £4 (will get BF1), Rainbow six siege which is pretty demanding can only play it on like medium settings ATM, GTA 5, Probably redownload some games like witcher 3, didn't get into it before. I also Make timelapses sometimes which I don't know if it uses GPU I think it's just ram, But I can make them into 4K 60 fps if i want, but My computer can't play them, the max it can play is 3K at 30 fps or it lags then freezes any higher resolution or fps, so could that actually be my CPU? I think it was VID usage that when it got over a certain amount it freezes the video? thanks.
BrotherO4 (2 years ago)
depends, what games you play? what resolution you play? what FPS you want? the 480 can be a good card but also the 1070...again it depends on what you looking for and what you want. simple way is if you know you are pushing your standard and what higher values on those Question than get the 1070. if you good with 1080 at 60 fps plus than the 480. if anycase if you do choose the 1070 than give it a few weeks so the price can come down to 380$

+Unlimited Motorsport & Gaming Meh, only a few games manage to drop below 60 on my 980. And those were still very playable (50-55fps on Rise of the tomb radier for example)
+Fuddy Duddy If you like to play at ultra and need 60 fps not always. Sure it is fine but 1080p is better for these cards, keep in mind that you want it to be future proof for newer games.

I bought the 390 because of the 290's great reputation. Nvidia's 970 was enticing but I couldn't overlook how well a 290 held it's own over time. I was confident a 390 would hold up through the next generation of cards and still have playable framerates in most AAA titles.

+ZedZedskiGaming *In close collaboration with AMD. There would be no HBM yet if AMD didn't invest its resources in it. I don't do multi-GPU anyways. Been there, not going back.

+ZedZedskiGaming If AMD didn't invest in HBM, there would be no HBM2. This investment was kind of needed but maybe too late since 4GB cards were already outdated on the high end.

Ok, you've got a point, but you are not totally right. Right now AMD is using better hardware, actually. You can tell that even by considering the fact they are using HBM in FURY and NANO edition, the same tecnology NVIDIA is going to imply in their new cards 1 year later. The real issue right here are the damn DRIVERS. NVIDIA surely is way better and in a higher level, mostly in games created for nvidia cards. I just hope AMD does something which will stand up to NVIDIA for the customers sake, for our sake. Otherwise, with no competition NVIDIA/AMD(if it were on the lead) would place prices in the market just like a kid playing with high numbers.

+ZedZedskiGaming nvidia uses loopholes nothing more while amd got the hardware :-) nvidia is Just trash nothing more if you can't see that you're just another sheep that keeps up with nvidia's bullshit ;-)
Omar Jimenez (2 years ago)
wouldn't it make more sense to see the differences from each card rather than all on one image to represent the game and just putting up a line graph?

+TheVanillatech I don't know why you are so angered, I thought this conversation ended long ago anyway lol. Lets just agree to disagree because obviously neither of us are going to change our stance or accept the other's opinion. Have a nice day :)

+Phantomfire335 Silly bastard. You talk like a child and like you are a good little consumer. I own over 150 GPU's from 1989-2016. I own over 50 Geforce / Nvidia cards, from the Riva 128 and TNT 2 Ultra to my current GTX980. I also own cards from 3Dfx, Matrox, PowerVR, Kyro, ATI, AMD and many more. There is no "fanboy" in my dictionary, young man. Only FACTS. Critical thinking, hardware knowledge and FACTS. Take a walk, silly cunt.

+TheVanillatech Did I hurt your feelings? Is it because I'm not praising your beloved AMD? Brand loyalty is stupid especially in PC gaming, stop being a fanboy.

+AllyourBaseArebelongToUs 1. No. 2. Yes. 3. Yes? No? Maybe? EDIT: The problem lies within select GPUs. Otherwise, the GPU would have never been certified.

+Weeaboo #404 ha ha slower than a R9 390 and GTX 970. consumes the same Watts of a 1080 pulls to many Watts from the PCI-E slot
Working Class (2 years ago)
+AllyourBaseArebelongToUs The AMD Radeon RX 480 is still a good GPU. The GPU was meant to replace the AMD Radeon R9 380 and it succeeded in doing so. The GPU consistently outperforms the Nvidia Geforce GTX 970 and AMD Radeon R9 390 mostly. https://i.redd.it/nt635hleo86x.png
Working Class (2 years ago)
+AllyourBaseArebelongToUs The AMD Radeon RX 480 benchmarks have been released. The GPU is still a good deal, but it is nothing exciting. I admit my mistakes. Really looking forward to the Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060 and the competition it brings in.
TheSilentWindow (2 years ago)
I wonder how the benchmarks would look if you tried using an FX-8350, would be interesting
M. SEE (2 years ago)
Around 10-15 fps in 1440p the difference is even lower...
alaskanhybrid (2 years ago)
Alot lower numbers. My friend had an 8350. Then he got a i7-4770K. He gained a lot more FPS out of his GTX780. So, yeah lower numbers.

it cuts the performance by 50%-70%

Those cards don't really directly compete though, at least in the US on the PC part picker, the cheapest 390X is $309, while the cheapest 980 is the $399 Suppose these benchmarks more show off DX12 on the 390X and AMD driver improvements over time possibly, as the Fury was the card for the 980 https://pcpartpicker.com/products/video-card/#c=185,312&sort=a8&page=1

+Tyler Summerlin There's like 1 1070 in stock, and it's probably gone by now ZOTAC ZT-P10700A-10P : Newegg In Stock same with the 1080, and one in stock on newegg
Tyler 2306 (2 years ago)
+Street Guru Use nowinstock.net and anyone can get a 1070 or 1080. A lot of different websites get them everyday.

Anything but ashes of the singularity.
TheVanillatech (2 years ago)
Both are REAL DX12 games. Maxwell (and Pascal) doesn't support DX12 on a hardware level. So the 390X would rape the piss out of the 980 in both of those games under DX12. Same with Warhammer Total War. Which is why NvidiaFoundry use Project Cars and Tombraider DX12 (ROFL) instead.
Detmer (2 years ago)
+Dregomz02 Totally agree on that.
Dregomz02 (2 years ago)
They should add Quantum Break and Forza 6 Apex since both uses dx12.

I'm getting a RX 480 next month. :) EDIT: In fact, no. I'll get a 970. It's almost the same price in my country so it's not worth giving up Nvidia's features for $20...
KNI Slaughterer (1 year ago)
GTX 970 is not worth it. the 900 series is slowly ding and you'll have to upgrade next year in contrast AMD hardware keeps getting better even older GPUS go check 970 vs 290x last year videos and nowdays and you'll find that RX 290x is beating it now ! Typical Nvidea hardware last for 9 months
TRANSIT0FVENUS (2 years ago)
+cristi1990an I hope you won't get too much butthurt when you'll realize that DX12 is better for new GPUs generation. Anyways, the important thing is that you are happy with that. Cheers ;)
