Does this card is cooled by water?
I do not know the price,, but I have a vehicle for sale Mitsubishi Colt 1200 1981 for a price below their card ... would interest my vehícle negotiate with your old computer? :)

Yes, it has a water cooler / radiator.
If they are not broke, I would still be left on my old GTX580. Un Pascal or not, but the Grakas outdated after 2-3 months and be replaced by stronger. Therefore I do not run for new, because it is expensive and stupid. ;)

The 980 is/was just a rebadged Maxwell architecture GPU. The Pascals will be an actual die-shrink/new Architecture with an absolutely huge performance jump. Pascals should be the top GPU line for at least a few years. (Not to mention that they will have 16gigs minimum of onboard ram!)  :)

Perf stats so far: submitted reports for Nvidia:AMD cards ratio 5:2

Added 980TI for comparison:

lol... Then it's still not worth the  money...  ::) (980 Ti)

My wallet was getting worried.  Then again, it doesn't have much of anything in it anyways.  :-[

Despite the number skip (just marketing), skipping a generation still feels about right for me (at the X70 level).  Not that I'm gonna have the money then either...

Really interesting to see ATI cards start to choke past the 20480 instance mesh size. The Nvidia cards are more stable but the 960 is also having problems in this area (despite handling an insane amount of triangles/s). Bad GPU design?

I assume it's an increased inability to parallelize the rendering with large mesh sizes. There's also a factor of larger index buffers required, but the bandwidth should not be a problem so it's probably irrelevant.

What surprised us most were the odd profiles of the newer AMD series. It's even more visible on the building test, it really starts to perform only from a certain mesh size (around 5k triangles), and is rather inefficient on smaller meshes. That partly explains why some our stuff is not running as well as it could, but not all of it can be merged into larger meshes.

Isn't Amd pretty notorious for generally poorer opengl  drivers than nvidia?

That was mainly because of bugs, but it got tons better since a few years ago.
This here indicates that we also have to invest more into optimizations tailored for these performance results. Might be still related to the drivers, but also to architectural differences.

Fortunately there seems to be a region that works well for both; a narrow one, but still better than having to do separate paths.

I think I asked something along these lines before: Will Outerra be multiple card aware?

Once OpenGL drivers start allowing us to query and select individual GPUs. There are some extensions that enable that, but we haven't tried them yet.

That should be interesting, maybe especially for VR!

Bleah. I'm waiting for the Pascal GPU's  ;)

Im also waiting for Pascal.  My monitor just broke and i was thinking in a Big 40" 4k Desktop for my job (i need a big desktop or multiple screen, and i think big desktop is much more elegant solution). 

But two problems here right now.. Cant find any tv full chroma 4:4:4 4k/60 Hz in less than 500/600 € . We had some interesting models below 400 (some Panasonic) , but doing 4:2:2 and read text in certain moments will be tricky..
And a Card necesary for handle a simple game in 4k with decent framerate would be a very expensive 980 (and not doing so great).

So i decided take some other Monitor for wait 6 months/1 year and then jump to 4k.  No sense in Spend 500 in a 980 with Pascal out after this next summer, when i will pay something similar for much more. 
Or maybe i will pay less, because i hope Pascal generation be full compatible with 4k, so the "1060" ?? models would be enough for play, even if not at maximum rates like with a 1080 or new pascal titans...   (Or maybe i am dreaming, i readed Pascal performance jump will be really huge).
Also i hope we can find more tv 4k full chroma in below 500 in 2016.
