The test system was built from scratch, a format of the hard drive was performed (NTFS) and then Windows 8.1 was installed. Following the completion of the installation, the video drivers were installed. All windows updates were then installed as were the latest builds of the benchmarking tools. Finally, the hard drives were de-fragmented (where appropriate). For each test, the video drivers were set to default quality/optimizations (unless otherwise stated).

Good Benchmarking Practice

Where possible, each benchmark was performed three times and the median result for each resolution/setting is shown in the tables that will follow. All applications had their latest patches applied and all hardware features the latest BIOS/Firmware.

    Has a release date for the MSI GTX 980 Twin Frozr V been announced yet? Any idea when it will be available at etailers? I’m showing it either hasn’t been released yet or is out of stock everywhere.

  2. Danny

    Cool review, good to see the back of the card which i can’t see on many stock images.

    Just purchased this MSI variant of the 980, can’t wait to install it and see how things go

  3. why in the test only gigabyte g1 970, you guys thinking it’s normal? if you put competitor of giga, why 970 not 980?

    • Hi, we tested the relevant cards which were available to us at the time. The reference 980 is present, the fastest single GPU AMD, a comparable 780Ti from the last generation and two 970s with different clocks so that you can make an informed decision.

  4. jon

    You say it uses 2 x 8 pin power connectors.. Wrong 2x 6

  5. Ian

    Hey,
    Is that an actual picture of the card you used or a supplied photo? I looked at the picture and it appears as 1X8/1X6. You can see 4 legs on the first and 3 on the second. Doesn’t really matter, more just curiosity.

  6. Ian

    Hey again,
    Sorry, my mistake. Looking at wrong picture. The back of the card is 2X8. The MSI photo is 1X6/1X8.
