GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB is an Enthusiast Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Maxwell architecture.


Architecture
The Second variant of the Maxwell Architecture, despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, has an extremely large L2 Cache and features a Third Generation Delta Color Compression which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.
The Second Revision of Maxwell also adds VXGI (Voxel Global Illumination) which makes scenes significantly more lifelike and believable as light interacts more realistically in the game environment and the MFAA technology which provides the same effect as MSAA but at a much lower performance cost.


GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed GM200-310-A1 which has 22 SM activated and thus 2816 Shader Processing Units, 176 TMUs and 96 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1000MHz and goes up to 1076MHz, in Turbo Mode.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 6GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 384-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1753MHz.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 250W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with one available 6-pin and one available 8-pin connectors.


Performance
Benchmarks Indicate its performance is slightly above AMD's Dual Radeon R9 295X2 at 1920x1080 but at any resolution above that, the latter proves to be faster.
As expected, $999 GeForce GTX Titan X is also slightly faster but GeForce GTX 980 is beaten in around 20%.
Even so, GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB is not a competitive product because a solution of two GeForce GTX 970 in SLI is still much faster and doesn't come at a much higher cost ($658 against $649).


System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1600. We recommend a Very Strong Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.

I would say go for the 980 Ti. 980 Ti is more or less about GTX 1070 performance.

Would this even be a worthy upgrade? Prices should drop with the 1080 release so considering it.

You will have some serious bottlenecking. You should have at least an i7 2nd gen forr this.

If OC to lets say 3.5Ghz and you play on 4k you will get same FPS like playing on 1080p with same settings https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yS-yXIAiFQw
