NVIDIA GTX 980 Review

NVIDIA GTX 980 Testing:

Unigine Heaven Benchmark 4.0 is a DirectX 11 GPU benchmark based on the Unigine engine. This was the first DX 11 benchmark to allow testing of DX 11 features. What sets the Heaven Benchmark apart is the addition of hardware tessellation, available in three modes – Moderate, Normal, and Extreme. Although tessellation requires a video card with DirectX 11 support and Windows Vista/7, the Heaven Benchmark also supports DirectX 9, DirectX 10, DirectX 11, and OpenGL 4.0. Visually, it features beautiful floating islands that contain a tiny village and extremely detailed architecture.

 

Settings

  • 8x AA
  • Ultra
  • Tesselation = Extreme
  • Measurement = FPS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In this test the performance margin for the GTX 980 over the R9 290X is roughly 5FPS at 1920x1080 and shrinks slightly as the resolution increases. When compared to the GTX 780 Ti, the GTX 980 delivers a minimal performance margin at 1920x1080 and 2560x1440, yet it is outperformed by the Kepler card at 3840x2160.
