r9 nano + watercooedl vs 980ti

aPinata

so when linus made his 7 gamers 2 cpu video with amd gpus it got me thinking and i found a r9 nano the vision tek for $450 local to me if i pick this up and water cool her will she out perform the 980ti if i get the overclocks right? cause linus said he got extra 800+ score of firestrike just woundering since most 980ti are lik $550+

Consider how much a loop, a waterblock, a pump, and a reservoir will cost 

980Ti is about par with a Fury X so take what you will from that

Nano is weaker than a 980 Ti but uses almost half the power and produces almost half the heat.

980 Ti is a good 20% faster but also runs 45% hotter and draws 45% more power

no, the nano is worse than the 980ti

and since it uses the same chip as the fury X, its overclocking capabilities are close to none

 

the price of watercooling it will be more than a 980ti anyway, so not really worth it unless you have a case that only fits short GPUs

You´d be better off with a GTX980Ti. Get a good board partner design like the EVGA FTW or so and you´ll have a card that´s going to be way faster than a Nano and won´t struggle with termal throttling due to an undersized cooler, also has more OCing potential.

The Nano is a niche product for people with limited space, and due only 1 single 8pin connector you can never OC it really far.

20% faster is based on stock clocks. A 980 Ti is probably closer to 40% faster than a Nano when you consider overclocking both of them (why wouldn't you? It's free performance).

He doesn´t understand that, he just recommends stuff without knowledge. Of course the GTX980Ti is faster than 20% over a Nano...

I'm constantly blown away by how many guys quote stock benchmarks when comparing the Fury X and the 980 Ti. You can overclock most 980 Ti's into a 25-35% increase in performance. You can overclock a Fury X probably 10% or less, for the most part.

He relates to AMD´s internal benchmarks.... as if those weren´t a mere marketing gag. Every board partner GTX980Ti is faster than any Fiji chip existing at this point and time. that´s just the truth. It has nothing to do with who is better or what not but countless free benchmarks just don´t lie. It is the same with my Titan X cards... with their stock coolers every good aftermarket GTX980Ti is faster. I just modded my BIOS added a shit ton of Volts and Watts and some beefy custom watercooling to make them competitive.

You just nailed it. The 980 Ti is an awesome piece of tech and it's currently unrivalled.

It's my hope that nvidia and AMD both manage to top it with their next gen's. I have a shield TV, so I kind of hope it's nvidia, but if it's AMD at least I'll save money on a top tier freesync monitor. I'd be happy either way.

Don is the biggest AMD f*ckboy on this site. He recommends AMD no matter the situation. Or he'll make some sly comment saying "but also runs 45% hotter and draws 45% more power." Never mind the fact he never mentions that when AMD is recommended over nVidia, seeing that their cards always draw more power and run hotter. :lol: As if somebody who's buying a high-end card gives a fuck about power consumption.

 

I'm fully convinced he's a pure troll and/or an AMD paid schill. No other way around it.

 

Hell, I'm one of the biggest nVidia fanboys you'll find but even I recommend AMD cards.

Yet he has an Intel CPU...

I guess that makes sense, since even AMD uses Intel when they build a machine...

I just wished that people wouldn´t be so ignorant and recommend stuff that they have no clue about. I mean in all seriousness, how can one recommend highend hardware, if he/she has never had anything comparable and no imagination of what´s possible and realistic?

 

That people play in such forum around as if they were some big shots is quite normal and doesn´t really bother me, but what bothers me is the point where those self proclaimed 'gurus' give other people good advice based upon nonsense... but some people just need to collect posts and likes I guess the actual content isn´t the main thing to them.

Until I built my friend's computer with a Gigabyte 980 Ti G1 Gaming, I didn't realize just how powerful the card is. It really puts into perspective the difference between reference benchmarks and overclocked partner cards, at least on Maxwell architecture.

 

In all honesty, given how well ALL of the Maxwell cards overclock, and how cool they all run (and most run quite low power), I'm actually really surprised nVidia didn't push the stock clocks a little higher. They would have made even more of a mess of this generation's race.

Yes they could have gone higher, but they didn´t do that with their reference cards for 2 good reasons.

First they wanted to make sure that all highend Maxwell chips maintain a very low Wattage out of the box, what board partners or people do with the cards at home is a different thing. But officially the card needs only the nVidia specs.

And secondly they wouldn´t beef up the GTX980Ti too much in reference, because it would make the Titan X, their top tier product, look bad. The Titan X was released as fast as possible by nVidia, to showcase what the big Maxwell can do. I´ve bought those cards as an early adopter because they fitted perfectly in my timing with my upgrading. Now I´d go with 2 EVGA GTX980Ti Classified and OC with my performance custom water cooling even further, because the Titan X reference PCB limits me.

I´ll sit it out for now and wait for Pascal in probably late 2016, but I´ll go back to EVGA (my cards are nVidia original now) that´s for sure.

Probably a good bet. The Titan X was a massive performer when it was released, but the price points of the Titans ($999 USD+) just don't fly with me. The resale on them is REALLY tough too. It would be hard for you to sell the Titan X for the same as an aftermarket 980 Ti, since as we all know, the 980 Ti's outperform the Titan X, and they only cost $649 when they were released.

Very true but I´ll probably just sell one of the Titan Xs anyhow when it´s time to say good bye to them, because my girl friend just runs a GTX970 and I think she might like a little custom loop on her machine as well :).
