GeForce GTX 980 SOC Gamer 4096MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card (98NQH6DNC7VZ)

The new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980/970 is powered by the next generation NVIDIA Maxwell Architecture, giving you incredible performance, unmatched power efficiency, and cutting-edge features.

Maxwell is the most advanced GPU architecture ever made, designed to be the engine of next generation gaming. Inspired by light, it was designed to solve some of the most complex lighting and graphics challenges in visual computing. For the first time, gaming GPU's can dynamically render indirect light using the new VXGI (Voxel Global Illumination technology). Scenes are significantly more lifelike as light interacts more realistically in the game environment.

The GTX 980 is the worlds fastest GPU and the GTX 970 offers the most advanced performance in its class. Each delivers 2x the performance of previous-generation card, bringing new gaming experiences to virtual reality, and ultra resolution 4k displays.

Enable the detail of 4k monitors, on a 1080P display. DSR produces smoother images by rendering a game at a high resolution, then downscaling it to the native resolution of the display using advanced filtering.

GeForce GTX 980 and 970 cards support tear-free, super-fast NVIDIA G-Sync monitor display technology including 4k. Together, these technologies provide the most immersive and competitive gaming experiences possible.

Few Issues with mine, but OK card

The card has 3 stickers on the fans, which when they get hot the adhesive starts to melt a little and causes them to become loose, this may not seem serious but it will cause it to get caught in the fans and may lead to the card being damaged.

Another issue is that my card isn't very good at overclocking, in fact even slight amounts caused the driver to crash.

Otherwise it's an excellent card at it's core clock, plus at the time I bought this it was on sale for


Begging for water

purchased 2 of these to replace my 970s , currently 1st on the fire strike extreme bench (2 cards)in the ocuk Forums thanks to these baby's . Overclock like monsters , virtually zero coil whine even when benching and are so quiet . There a bit toasty in SLI but not unmanageable , 68c bottom card and 83 top card when temp limits moved to 90c and have priority. 1563 MHz on the core , 7933mhz effective vram atm but I think 1600mhz is achievable on air with these .


Top Banana

Zero coil wine, silent at when idle, not too noisy at full pelt and overclocks well


Good for 4K gaming

I bought this a few weeks ago to try and bring my system up to 4K gaming and it works fine but with some games you will need 2 of these guys to run at 60fps


Best Card For The Money

I bought this card for Christmas the best card i have had. OC like a dream, no coil whine or noise.


seriously good card

What can i say had this card nearly 2 weeks had a 290 tri-x and even from that what an upgrade handles everything you throw at it still cool temperatures overclocks like hell i have over 21000 on 3dmark 11 performance!


Blown away

Upgraded today from 1.5GB GTX 580. The 580 ran most games ok, but this card is an absolute monster. Draws hardly any power and absolutely destroys everything I have thrown at it whilst staying under 65 degrees. I cannot believe how far technology has progressed in the 3 years since I bought my 580. I only play at 1080p, but 144Hz and am getting 144fps on everything except BF4 (maxed) 64 player which sometimes dips to 125ish. And this is stock out of the box - I believe a 10+% overclock is quite easily achieved - will try after I get home from work tomorrow.
WOW what a card! The best purchase I have ever made (although my 2600k is still going at 4.9Ghz so it's a close call!)
Buy this card with confidence. I still haven't told my wife how much it cost me yet, hopefully she won't find out =).


Best card.. thats it..

I buy this card coz i trust GALAX old Galaxy and really guys trust me its one of the best cards out there :)
i play games every day 5-8 hours (shadow of mordor,sleeping dogs DE,BF4,COD,And other random games) (100FPS+) (MAX LOAD 62-72 Celsius) at 1373mhz (stock boost) card quality 10/10 very very low noise.. and always cold..
