Gigabyte GeForce GTX 980 Ti G1 Gaming Review – Conclusion

Looking first at the build quality and design of the GTX 980 Ti G1 Gaming we have a card which is off to a good start. A metal shroud is always better than plastic and the backplate used by Gigabyte is fairly stylish while also protecting the card. The LED lighting on the top (which can change colour) is a nice touch and the fan on/off indicators will likely appeal to those with case windows. We get plenty of output options on this card and overall size is in line with other models based on this GPU which is great.

In terms of cost, at the time of writing this version of the GTX 980 Ti is more expensive than reference models, which is to be expected, however it is very competitively priced against other OC/custom models using the same GPU. So well done to Gigabyte on that.

Turning to performance and we have one note and one minor gripe. Our note is that we were testing with the latest BIOS from Gigabyte, supplied to us last week. It is designed to minimise noise levels/fan speed without significantly impacting temperatures. As far as our minor complaint goes, as we stated above Gigabyte note that users should install their OC Guru software then enable OC mode for maximum performance. We feel that the OC clocks should be the factory clocks for the card. It seems silly to have to set them manually. We are all for having an ECO mode that the user can enable, but for a card such as this the out of the box speed should be at maximum.

Looking at the thermal and power figures, we have no complaints. The card is a little higher on both than the reference card however that is to be expected given the specifications of this model. Fan noise is also good and with the latest BIOS the card is barely noticeable when gaming. In comparison to AMDs new Fury X card, the G1 Gaming easily outperforms the Radeon in gaming framerates however the AMD card does run cooler, draws a little less power and has a smaller PCB. For the comparison with the reference GTX 980 Ti, we get performance improvements in every game, sometimes into double digit FPS which is great.

Summary: An impressive version of the GTX 980 Ti which is built to a high standard, allows us to game at 4K in the latest titles and offers a good increase in framerate over the reference card and the competition.
