Dismissing the TITAN family of NVIDIA GPUs, the GTX 980 series is the flagship graphics card from NVIDIA. The GTX 980 when released back in September last year was met with universal praise thanks to the Earth shattering performance it gave us. Indeed, in our review of the GTX 980, it was awarded both Gold and performance accolades. Fast forward 8 months to today and NVIDIA have released the much hyped GTX 980 Ti.

With Windows 10 just around the corner and the latest DirectX 12 (which this card fully supports), now would seem to be a good time to upgrade your graphics card and NVIDIA have hopefully given us cause to do so with their latest effort. At 550 it certainly isn't a cheap upgrade and is some 120 more than the GTX 980 upon release. It is however some 400 cheaper than the TITAN-X which I think we can all agree is beyond what most enthusiasts are willing to pay for a graphics card. Flagship graphics cards have always increased in price, at least if the past five or so years are anything to go by so this price hike is expected if somewhat begrudgingly. Is it worth the cost though? Worth 120 more than the GTX 980? Should you upgrade? Should you (dare we suggest) even switch loyalties from AMD with their 290X? These and other questions we will answer throughout our review so sit back, buckle up as we take you through NVIDIA's latest and greatest: The GTX 980 Ti.
