First Benchmark Scores Leaked For Nvidia GTX 980/970
The results are a wee bit disappointing…
Nvidia’s new generation of GPUs are almost here. Nvidia has decided to jump an entire number with these upcoming ones, skipping straight from the 700s to the 900s, so that would lead many to assume that there’s some sort of massive leap in performance and benefits, right?
Well… if these latest leaked benchmark scores for these graphic cards are to be believed, that doesn’t appear to be the case. There is definitely a perceptible performance benefit and improvement, but it is very minor. Almost disappointingly minor. It is, in fact, so minor that Nvidia probably won’t be able to charge a premium for these cards like they usually like to do with their products.
The benchmark results that you see above (which come to us courtesy of VideoCardz.com) show us that these cards are fairly unimpressive in the larger scheme of things. Sure, they will have their place appealing to a certain segment of the market, but as mentioned above, that can only happen if they don’t price themselves out of that market entirely.
Of course, this might all just be rumors, and the final cards may actually be fairly more impressive. Still, for now, maybe you’re better off waiting for more news, and as always, you have GamingBolt for that.
