In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA ACX 2.0+ 6GB Edition are marginally better than the AMD Radeon RX 480X 8GB.

The RX 480X has a 250 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 980 Ti, but the GTX 980 Ti has 48 more Texture Mapping Units than the RX 480X. As a result, the GTX 980 Ti exhibits a 16 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the RX 480X. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The RX 480X has a 250 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 980 Ti, but the GTX 980 Ti has 32 more Render Output Units than the RX 480X. As a result, the GTX 980 Ti exhibits a 16 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the RX 480X. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RX 480X was released over a year more recently than the GTX 980 Ti, and so the RX 480X is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 980 Ti.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The RX 480X has 2048 MB more video memory than the GTX 980 Ti, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GTX 980 Ti has superior memory performance.

The GTX 980 Ti has 336.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 480X, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 980 Ti is massively better than the RX 480X.

The Radeon RX 480X 8GB has 2048 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA ACX 2.0+ 6GB Edition has 2816. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 480X is 2560 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 980 Ti is 4091. The GTX 980 Ti having 1531 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 980 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RX 480X.

The RX 480X transistor size technology is 14 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 980 Ti. This means that the RX 480X is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 980 Ti. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the RX 480X should consume less power than the GTX 980 Ti.

The Radeon RX 480X 8GB requires 150 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA ACX 2.0+ 6GB Edition requires 250 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the RX 480X and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 980 Ti. The GTX 980 Ti requires 100 Watts more than the RX 480X to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 980 Ti may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RX 480X.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon RX 480X 8GB is an Upcoming High-End Graphics Card based on the Third Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Architecture
N/A.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Ellesmere XT which has 32 SM activated and thus 2048 Shader Processing Units, 128 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1250MHz and goes up to 1350MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 8GB frame buffer of Second Gen GDDR5X, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 150W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 8-pin connector.

Performance
N/A.

System Suggestions
Radeon RX 480X 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1600. We recommend a High-End Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Overview
GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA ACX 2.0+ 6GB Edition is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's Enthusiast GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB, created by EVGA.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit Remains the Same.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock and the Frame Buffer remain the same.

Cooling Solution
EVGA ACX 2.0+ brings new features to the award winning EVGA ACX 2.0 cooling technology. A memory MOSFET Cooling Plate (MMCP) reduces MOSFET temperatures up to 13%, and optimized Straight Heat Pipes (SHP) reduce GPU temperature by an additional 5C. ACX 2.0+ coolers also feature optimized swept fan blades, double ball bearings and an extreme low power motor, delivering more air flow with less power, unlocking additional power for the GPU.

Performance
Without Any Overclock Out of The Box, GeForce GTX 980 Ti EVGA 6GB Edition is as fast as the reference GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB.
Recommended CPU-Intel Core i7-6700K 4-Core 4.0GHz
Intel Core i7-4790K 4-Core 4.0GHz
