EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti Superclocked+ ACX 2.0+

Rating: 9.0.

A couple of weeks ago we reviewed the latest Nvidia GTX980Ti reference card, and today we follow up with a look at the latest flagship model from one of their key partners. The ‘EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti Superclocked+ ACX 2.0+' is quite the mouthful, but EVGA have earned a reputation for releasing some of the finest hardware to target the enthusiast audience. This particular model ships with a 6+2 power phase, custom cooler and unlike the reference Nvidia card, EVGA have decided to fit the card with a custom backplate.

In the short time since launch, we have noticed the GTX980Ti has been warmly received by the enthusiast audience. The additional 2GB of memory over the older GTX980 will certainly help drive texture heavy titles at 4K resolutions in the coming year.

Right now AMD lovers have two high end choices. The power hungry, dual GPU R9 295X2 has been reduced in price to £499.99-£599.99 via selected retailers and there are some 8GB R9 290X cards available from companies such as Sapphire. Until AMD release their new series of cards, Nvidia have been able to run amok in the high end.

The Nvidia GTX980 Ti ships with 2816 CUDA cores and 22 SM units. The memory subsystem of the GTX980 Ti consists of six 64-bit memory controllers (384-bit) with 6GB of GDDR5 memory.

The EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti Superclocked+ ACX 2.0+ has received a clock boost over Nvidia's reference card, with final speeds set at 1,102 mhz/1,190mhz. This translates into a decent ‘out of the box' clock boost, with additional headroom likely available when we get to the overclocking section later in the review.

  1. Sweet jeeeeesus. Incredible performance, really didn’t expect the Ti to be as good as it obvioulsy is!

  2. James Stephen Edge

    Kinda sucks it can’t do silent idle 🙁 that’s something the Gaming/Strix have in their favour.

  3. Uh it idles at 29c that’s silent idle…. since it’s below 60c

  4. This review sucks.

  5. ——— SSSSSSoooooo Extra Cute profit with kitguru ——- ——— Keep Reading

  6. I was curious about this card. It’s nice to see that it’s got the goods to keep cool and effecient, but I’ll be more interested to see the prices after AMD drops the fury into play. I’m hoping to see this card for around $550 currently $700 in the US.

  7. wowgivemeabreak

    Why do reviews at 4k with things like 4x msaa enabled in GTA 5 (when it’s known msaa is a performance killer nor is it needed at 4k) and hairworks on in Witcher 3?

    Do tests showing more reasonable settings that people are going to be using the damn game with.

  8. what the hell happened to the R9 295x in the Withcher III ??

  9. No Crossfire support, I assume.

  10. so how is it that Nvidia manages to get drivers ready for the newest games and release them on the day but AMD have to wait a week or so before their drivers are released ? Are Nvidia paying for early code access I wonder ??

  11. actually no .. the card is just terrible in some games. I just sold one for this exact reason. witcher runs fine in some areas while other areas give you 12fps. crap card.

  12. Not really , they just produce better hardware. Look at Dirt Rally for example. Its an AMD sponsored game and yet if you own an AMD GPU your stuck with dotted transparent textures. Team red just can’t get their driver team to produce decent drivers. Project Cars , Witcher ,Dirt Rally , Most new titles have serious issues with crossfire and the 200 series cards.

  13. The reason for this is terrible VRAM. Yes, it has 512-bit interface and the 980ti has only 386-bit interface, but Delta-Colour-Compreesion (DCC – Gen 3) helps massively.

  14. I agree with you. I am 100% Nvidia and always will be untill AMD starts to sort out their drivers. Trouble is everytime I mention this to AMD (or on any AMD related article) I get nothing but abuse from over-zealous FanBoys who can’t see the true facts because of the rose-tinted glasses they seem to view everything through…

  15. Temperature Sound level

  16. EVGA’s ACX 2.0+ fan turns off below 60°C, generating 0dB of noise.

  17. Suck my ass OK.

  18. The results shown here are the same as the 290X, which is what happens when AMD doesn’t have a crossfire driver ready.

  19. Konrad Teterwak

    Yeah, exactly what I was thinking. And why no 1440p benchmarks instead of 1600p? Who the hell uses a 1600p monitor???

  23. really? 65° in game? mmmm

  24. If you spend $500 on a card you want max settings on everything.

  25. Nop if you want max settings you’ll need 2 card at 1200$ that the price for max settings.

    If you spend 400$ on a ps4 you’ll get only 1080P

    I troll but today developper got high end pc with tri or quad sli and professionnal graphics card to developpe the game, cause if you buy a quad sli, you want to be able to use it at full power. Not only using 20% of that fabulous power !

    For me i want my card to be fully used at this price !

  26. Amd suck that’s all, if amd do great processors and graphic card, amd/ati will be the number one in the market, you want perfomance ? intel/nvidia !

    We just replaced two (3) 980 STRIX with 2 of these cards. At a +150 core 75 + mem 102 power target it beated our way more overclocked 3-Way SLI. These cards are actually okay. Take a look at them here, there is some pictures and also of the 3DMark results in comparison. http://computer.bazoom.com/dk/galleri/8503-stationaer-asus-rog-blackredmetal-extreme
