MSI GeForce GTX 980 Ti Gaming 6 GB Review

68 Packaging & Contents » NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 980 Ti was released just a few weeks ago. It is built on the same GM200 GPU as the GeForce Titan X, but has fewer shaders (2816 vs 3072). While the GTX 980 Ti's GPU is still produced on a 28 nanometer process at TSMC in Taiwan, it comes with the fantastic power efficiency optimizations of the NVIDIA Maxwell architecture, which promises lower power draw, higher performance, and reduced fan noise all at the same time. Our review of the reference design GTX 980 Ti revealed that it is barely slower than the Titan X, which means custom designs could surpass Titan X performance at a much lower price point.

Today, we are reviewing the MSI GeForce GTX 980 Ti Gaming, one of the most anticipated custom designs for the GTX 980 Ti. MSI is using their large dual-fan TwinFrozr cooler we've seen on other recent models before. The card comes with a high overclock for 1178 MHz on the base and 1774 MHz on the memory is overclock. The MSI GTX 980 Ti Gaming can be found online for $680, which is a $30 premium over NVIDIA's MSRP for GTX 980 Ti.

68 Temperatures & Clock Profiles » Overclocking results listed in this section are achieved with the default fan and voltage settings as defined in the VGA BIOS. We choose this approach as it is the most realistic scenario for the majority of users. Every sample overclocks differently, which is why our results here can only serve as a guideline for what you can expect from your card. On NVIDIA cards with Boost, the values discussed is the highest observed boost clock after overclocking.

Maximum overclock of our sample is +102 MHz to the GPU's base clock (9% overclock), which results in a maximum boost clock of 1507 MHz on the GPU and 2040 MHz on the memory (15% overclock). As expected, overclocking is quite similar to other GTX 980 Ti cards. Maximum Overclock ComparisonMax. GPU ClockMax.

Clock Profiles

Modern graphics cards have several clock profiles that are selected to balance power draw and performance requirements. The following table lists the clock settings for important performance scenarios and the GPU voltage we measured. We performed these measurement on the pins of a coil or a capacitor near the GPU voltage regulator. GPU ClockMemory ClockGPU Voltage (measured)DesktopMulti-MonitorBlu-ray Playback3D Load

The card uses NVIDIA's dynamic overclocking mechanism, GPU Boost 2.0. It will dynamically adjust clock and voltage based on render load, temperature, and other factors. For the graph below, we recorded all GPU clock and GPU voltage combinations of our 1920x1080 resolution benchmarking suite. The plotted points are transparent, which allows them to add up to indicate more often used values. A light color means the clock/voltage combination is rarely used and a dark color means it's active a lot.

  • The MSI GTX 980 Gaming can be found online for $680.
  • Large overclock out of the box makes it 10% faster than the Titan X
  • Better price/performance than the GTX 980 / 980 Ti
  • Much quieter than the GTX 980 Ti reference design
  • Fans turn off in idle and light gaming—no noise!
  • Great efficiency
  • Memory overclocked, too
  • Backplate included
  • HDMI 2.0
  • Quad-SLI support
  • New software features (MFAA and DSR)
  • Could be quieter during gaming
  • Noticeable increase in power consumption
Today, we are reviewing our first GTX 980 Ti since AMD launched their Fury X, which means the picture in the enthusiast segment is finally complete. MSI's GeForce GTX 980 Ti introduces a new TwinFrozr V cooler variant to the company's GeForce lineup and is heavily overclocked to a base clock of 1178 MHz out of the box; the memory is also overclocked by 25 MHz. With the card's large boost range, it turns out to be the fastest GTX 980 Ti we have tested so far. Compared to the GTX 980 Ti reference board, the performance increase is an impressive 15% at 4K, which makes the card 10% faster than the GTX Titan X and 15% faster than AMD's watercooled Fury X. There is one oddity I wanted to mention, though. Back when we reviewed the MSI GTX 980 Non-Ti Gaming, MSI sent us a card with a base clock of 1216 MHz, a value that was never seen in the wild. Retail cards came with 1190 MHz instead—just look at our VGA BIOS database here. The bottom-most BIOS is that of my review card and the others are retail. On retail cards, you had to use Afterburner to load that overclocking profile manually, and I suspect the same to be the case with this card—our review sample runs 1178 MHz base and retail cards run 1140 MHz base, keep that in mind when comparing cards for purchase. The new version of MSI's TwinFrozr cooler does a great job at keeping the card cool since the board never even gets close to the 84°C temperature limit at which NVIDIA Boost will start lowering clocks to keep temperatures in check. MSI also includes the fans-off-in-idle feature that lets you work, watch movies, or play light games without any fan noise at all. Fan noise during serious gaming is also much lower than with the NVIDIA reference design, but at 37 dBA, far from whisper quiet. The EVGA GTX 980 Ti is definitely quieter than that and the ASUS GTX 980 Ti Strix may even get closer to the 30 dBA mark. Another thing we criticized on the reference design was the lack of a backplate. MSI addressed the issue by including a great-looking metal backplate on their card. NVIDIA's Maxwell architecture comes with fantastic power efficiency improvements and the MSI GTX 980 Ti Gaming is no exception. However, although still nothing to worry about, the power consumption increase is a bit larger than I expected. Furmark maximum power is the same as with the reference design, though, so MSI did not increase the board's power limit, which would have made sense given they changed the board power input to dual-8-pin.

The GeForce GTX 980 Ti doesn't come cheap at a price of $650 for the reference design, and MSI is asking another $30 for their Gaming card, which is reasonable. Still, even at $680, the card's gaming price/performance ratio is better than that of the GTX 980 Ti reference at $650 or the GTX 980 at $480. AMD's Fury X at $650 lags behind in every metric except noise because it is watercooled, though the pump emits a high-pitched whine. So if you are looking for a high-end card this summer, the GTX 980 Ti is the way to go, and the price increase of a custom variant is definitely worth it. Which manufacturer's custom design you end up buying doesn't make that much of a difference because the differences are, rather, nuances you can pick between based on personal taste.

68 Tomb Raider » The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is one of the action-RPG highlights this year. You are Geralt, the Witcher, who is on a quest to find his lost friend Ciri, and you will explore the huge in-game world in the process. The game is filled with side-stories that do not feel like tacked on quests as they make you feel as though something else is really happening in the world you are a part of as Geralt. The Witcher 3 sees the introduction of the REDengine 3 game engine, which is specifically designed for open world RPG environments. It takes advantage of DirectX 11 with tessellation, and some post-processing effects. In the interest of neutrality, we ran the game with HairWorks disabled.
