With the drivers finally being released for Nvidia’s new GTX 9xx series, our technicians have finally had a chance to put our newest arrivals through their paces with a benchmark and temperature test. The GTX 980 and 970 are the newest additions to the Nvidia line up running on the more power efficient, DirectX 12 ready Maxwell architecture, announced today during Nvidia’s Game24 live stream.
Not being released to retail until next week, Evatech has got its hands on AMDs brand new 28nm Tonga XT GPU this afternoon and is bringing you what might be a world first, hands on with the R9 285!
So without further ado, lets get to it. Keep in mind we are not professional reviewers, just enthusiasts who got a new toy early, so we apologize in advance for the limited amount of testing & details.
UPDATE : BENCHMARK RESULTS ADDED – 02/09 12:05pm
