I got my new toy today... a GigaByte GTX 980 G1 to replace the GTX 460 that I was temporarily using in my UberBoxen. I ran some 3DMark benchmarks just to see what the improvements are. System Configuration Intel i7-4790K GigaByte Z97X-UD5H CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 Windows 7 64-bit Samsung EVO 840 500 GB (Primary/Boot SSD drive) Crucial m4 256GB (SSD Work Drive) Video Cards GigaByte GAMING-4GD GTX 980 G1 (arrived today!) Palit GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) Sonic Platinum Overclocking Edition 1GB (purchased in July, 2010 within one month of release. Only modification was that the card was taken apart and the thermal paste replaced with Arctic Silver to resolve a overheating issue) Firestrike 460: 2838 980: 11760 (4.14x increase) Sky Diver 460: 9861 980: 29547 (3x increase) Cloud Gate 460: 16990 980: 29642 (1.7x increase) Ice Storm 460: 136994 980: 173256 (1.26x increase) NOTE: I did not run multiple tests, so I do not have a statistically valid result. Firestrike is the hardest of the four benchmarks, thus the biggest increase.
