According to that article is just a bit of increase and not worth it.

How about real experience in prepar 3D? Anyone?

Most people report no fps increase in P3D worth talking about, but......you can run higher AA setting with a 980/980Ti. So you need to ask is that worth it? also helps with 4K

I would rather get a second 780, and run it in SLi :) Was looking into swapping my 980 for 980ti, but landed on 2x980 in SLi. Works a charm, but P3D (unlimited) with SGSS is still able to melt both of them in heavy clouds..  :Pig:

1. The increase in FPS in "normal conditions" with no clouds is minimal

2. Meanwhile with SGSAAx4 set via NVI I'm able to have a perfect AA with no FPS loss as it used to be with 780

3. The main benefit point - ability to fly through unlimited layers of overcast with almost zero loss in FPS. With 780 I was getting 10-12 FPS in 10-layers overcast, now it 23-25.

 

Bottom line - I upgraded and I'm totally happy. Think about the weather conditions that EGLL recently has had and you'll understand why I'm happy

Agree.   Small but not worth.

Went from 780ti/2700k at 4k to 980ti/6700k and fps went up by around 35%-40% at the same settings. Unfortunately I cant say whether it was the processor or graphics made the most difference. If you are not running 4k then you probably wont see that level of improvement.

I have to say that does sound great.

I hope in the future that SLI can be used with undocking panels. I have 2 x GTX970 and 75% of the time right now is tubes =1X970 on job and the rest 25% is VFR with SLI

 

 

But Project Cars maxed out and 95% used on both is SO cool  :wink:

Im surprised there is not a big improvement since the 980 Ti has twice as much video memory .

 

  • GPU: GeForce GTX 780
  • Core Clock: 863 MHz Base / 900 MHz Boost
  • Core Processors: 2304 Stream Processors
  • Memory: 3GB GDDR5
  • Memory Interface: 384-bit
  • Memory Clock: 6008 MHz

 

 

  • Chipset: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti
  • Core Clock: 1102 MHz
  • Video Memory: 6GB GDDR5
  • Memory Clock: 7010 MHz
  • Memory Interface: 384-bit

 

 

So what video card would be a noticeable improvement over the GTX 780

i had a 780 and now a 980Ti in fsx a little gain in preformance, in other games a huge gain.

 

but i would rather here from people going from a i7 3770k to a 6700k, what is your experiance?

Sort of like Fsx and v1.4 - FPS is more closely tied to Processor Speed - Nothing like a set of Heads - pipes - and a Full Race cam to stir things Up - SORRY "OLD GUY" Speaking - :smile: :smile: :hi:

I think it should be much better when using Nvidia Surround with three or more monitors on one card.

 

I'm just about to switch from a 780 to a 980 ti because I want to go for three monitors and performance was not too good with the 780 @  5760x1080

 

Will come back to report :smile:

I got a lot more frames from 750ti to 980ti.

 

From about 15 -20 now 30 -60 depends on the Situation

I am running two 970 in SLI and its great!

Elaine, so you bought one?   I'm thinking of upgrading from a GTX680 2 GB, to the 6GB GTX 980Ti....since the prices have stabilized to a lower point.  Right now, though, I'm just suffering through analysis, paralysis...doh!

 

Looking at an Asus, or an EVGA product....and I wonder if prices are going to drop more aggressively, towards the start of the Xmas buying season...

I'm also waiting for the prices to come down a little, Im lead to believe looking at the comparison charts regarding performance, the Asus Strix is one of the best 980Ti's closely followed by the MSI 980Ti.

 

I may go for the MSI one myself, as its slightly smaller and slightly cheaper.

Yes Mitch i bought one a while back. The cheapest i could get mine delivered to Ireland (fast post) was 800 Euro.   You see i didn't notice a big difference with P3D or X-plane because i was coming from a powerful 4 gig card already,  But you will certainly notice a very nice difference coming from a  Gtx 680. 

 

These benchmarks are not exact but you get the picture.  

 

This is my old card the Gtx 690 and your current card the Gtx 680

So as you can see the the Gtx 690 was a pretty powerful card.   Like i said you will notice a considerable upgrade going to a Gtx 980ti.    Go on Mitch treat yourself  :smile:  

 

This is when i begun my journey,  sure you know me, i love to ask questions and the nice folks on this thread were kind enough to accommodate me  http://www.avsim.com/topic/473442-gtx-980-ti-which-one-though/

G-YMML1,

 

Just curious if you use a single 980TI or two 980TI in SLI mode?

Yes...my due diligence, has also had me looking at the ASUS.  :)

Thank you VERY much, Elaine....most helpful...and yes...I will be going for it. I have been very happy with the GTX680...so I can only imagine, as you show here...the difference for myself at least. I will be staying with my present CPU, so...the card will be the one to show any more system performance over all my sims.  Thanks again for the comeback, most helpful!
