ASUS GTX980 SLI Review
This is the moment that you've been waiting for. If we're honest it's the moment we've been looking forward to as well.
We all know that the GTX780Ti was a beast of a card, and when we tested it in SLI with the Gainward Phantoms it found itself at the top of our graphs. A position it hasn't relinquished since then. The GTX980 is very similar in performance to the GTX780 but at a greatly reduced power draw making it the perfect choice for pairing up in SLI.
If there wasn't much to choose between the Kepler and Maxwell GPUs in raw horsepower then we can't wait to see if the refinement of both process and drivers has meant the GTX980 continues its march towards the title of 'only sensible purchase if you've got some cash to spare'.
You know what it is, and we know you're eager to see the results so let's get down to business.
We're running a pair of reference cooler models today so that we can test the worst case scenario out when it comes to both noise and temperatures as well as performance. Let's be honest though, the coolers look the business, especially side on.
