    LOL - okay so i just performed a search on GeForce GTX 980 at geizhals.at, an EU based price-watch engine. It started listingÂ*GeForce GTX 980. Few details are listed however there are some interest...

    2304 Kepler vs 2560 Maxwell. Hmm. Exactly a ninth more shader units. If this isn't at least more than a ninth faster, the 780 (with 6GB) will still be competition for it's successor, since 6GB should be nice for the moment anyway, little benefit of 8GB ver 6GB vram I'd expect.

    If it really REALLY has 64ROPs I might be impressed, and waiting to see how it performs.

    I hope they can take some voltage and sub zero cooling without soldering an as5end to it but I dought it

    Have they listed the prices already? Because i can´t see them and that´s what i want to know.

    BTW can we expect a review shortly Hilbert? Thanks.

    Saw the other listings yesterday but the pricewatch engine is a new one... if those specs are true, /drool.....

    Each maxwell core has about 2x the power efficiency and performs 35% better, confirmed per reviews and as claimed by nvidia's slides of first-gen Maxwell (750 Ti). If it really has 2560 maxwell cores it's going to be probably 25% faster than the 780 Ti.

    +1 to that request. Hope to get one myself.

    Price between 300-400$ I'd expect

    Maybe 25% faster at 720p, but the higher the resolution, the smaller the 980's advantage will become, due to its much smaller bus widt / bandwidth.

    Nope. The bandwidth is much less important for maxwell due to the scheduler improvements, 8x the L2 cache, and other architectural changes. Bandwidth is just one factor in performance regardless.

    What kind of crackhead would run a 980 at 720p?

    I don't think my 690 needs upgrade yet. Maybe 990?

    ROFL - Nope.

    Gibbo has already alluded to the performance and I would trust what he says a lot more than you or Nvidia's slides tbh.

    And JFYI, if it's 25% faster than a Ti, you can kiss your dreams of a $500.00 card goodbye and say hello to $800 (or more).

    i though gibbo was relating price and not perf.
    when sayin 980 would replace 780

    Well, I got the impression he was alluding to both but even then, there is no way that a card that is 25% faster than a Ti is selling for the same price as a Ti, not if Nvidia is involved.

    I went and found the quotes:

    He is clearly alluding to both price and performance here.
