MSI GeForce GTX 980 Ti Gaming 6G Review
Category : NVIDIA
Published by Marc Büchel on 27.08.15
With the GTX 980 Ti Gaming 6G, MSI has a Maxwell based graphics card in their portfolio, which features a rather high factory overclocking and apart from that there is the brand new Twin Frozr V cooler. MSI is combining a custom PCB with a custom cooler in order to allow for great overclocking potential and we're really curious to find out what this beast can do.

Presentation




MSI is amongst the first Nvidia add-in-card (AIC) partners that have decided to introduce a new custom GTX 980 Ti graphics card which is using NVIDIAs latest and greatest GM200-310-A Maxwell chip. For this graphics card, MSI makes use of a custom PCB along with a new version of their TwinFrozr V cooler. On the backside of the card, there is a good looking backplate. A quick glance at the specs also reveals that this card ships factory overclocked.

Browsing the specifications of this card we find 2816 CUDA cores, 176 TMUs and 96 ROPs. For comparison reasons, the GTX 980 features 2048 CUDA cores, 128 TMUs and 64 ROPs. This means that, compared to the smaller model, there are significantly more CUDA cores, TMUs and ROPs. Looking at the clock speeds of this monster we find 1'178 MHz base clock and 1'279 MHz boost clock, whereas the NVIDIA reference cards run at 1000MHz/1075MHz, therefore there is a massive 19% factory overclock on the GPU.



As we already mentioned, MSI decided to use a significant factory-overclock on their new GTX 980 Ti Gaming 6G. While the reference GTX 980 Ti is set to work at 1000 MHz for the base clock and 1075 MHz for the GPU boost clock, the GTX 980 Ti Gaming 6G runs at 1'178 MHz base clock and 1'279 MHz boost clock.

When it comes to memory clock speeds we see a slight, 100 MHz frequency boost, which makes the chips run at 7100 MHz. Combine this with a 384 Bit memory interface and you end up with a total of 340.6 GB of memory bandwidth.

Whereas the typical boost clock is set at 1'279 MHz, the maximum boost of 1'380 MHz was achieved quite easily and the GTX 980 Ti Gaming 6G held that clock most of the load time due to the capable TwinFrozr V cooler as well as good TDP target (nVidia's Boost technology being power-based and not temperature-based on this card).

The card



   


As noted earlier, the GTX 980 Ti Gaming 6G graphics card features MSI's famous Twin Frozr V cooler with a total of four heatpipes, where three measure 8mm and one comes with a diameter of 6mm. Apart from that, there are two 100mm fans which cool the large heatsink connected to the nickel-plated copper base plate. As a part of the MSI Gaming series, the this particular cooler comes with a red on black color scheme and the overall build quality of the cooler is just great.


The MSI GTX 980 Ti Gaming 6G graphics card, or to be precise our sample of it, allowed a maximum stable overclock of 1'480 MHz for the GPU and 1'800 MHz on the memory side. We used Furemark V1.11.0 Geeks3D benchmark with 15 minutes duration. With these clocks we had to feed the GPU with 1.193 Volts and the memory ran at stock voltages.


A closer look at the PCB shows that MSI equipped this card with a 8+2+1 phase digital power design. The GPU gets its current from eight phases, two phases take good care of the 6GB of GDDR5 memory and two additional phase are in charge of PLL. Once more, MSI is using high quality chokes. Checking the voltage regulation chip, we find a digital multi-phase buck controller NCP8114.



   


The memory chips used are made by SKHynix and carry the model number H5GQ4H24MFR. They are specified to run at 1'750 MHz (7'000 MHz effective).

Delivery

 


The graphics card ships well bolstered in a foam made mold. Bundled with it there is a user guide, a driver CD and a power converter (2x6-Pin to 1x8-Pin-PCIe). If you are looking for game vouchers or something like that you will be disappointed, since there is absolutely nothing like this in the box.

Conclusion


General +  
The GTX 980 Ti Gaming with 6 GB of GDDR5 memory is simply amongst the very fastest cards we've had for testing yet. The new TwinFrozr V cooler, which is capable of deactivating the fans, when the card is in idle does a great job. Apart from that there is a high quality power design, which allows overclocking the GM200 significantly. Looking at performance this card is insanely fast, overclocking itself to a maximum boost clock of a staggering 1380 MHz. Combine that with the 2816 CUDA cores, and you can grasp, that this card is seriously fast. Putting this card through all the different games, we noticed, that it is actually capable of running UHD smoothly. Apparently, when there are high detail settings used in UHD then even this card struggles, but without anti aliasing activated almost any game can be played at 3840 x 2160.
Basically there is only one drawback with this card: it is quite expensive. Already the reference GTX 980 Ti is able to tear a huge hole into your pocket and the GTX 980 Ti Gaming 6G from MSI costs about 50 Euro more than the reference card. Considering the already high price of the GTX 980 Ti reference cards and the fact, that this particular model features a great cooler as well as an equally great power design, the extra 50 Euro are the utmoste that can be justified.

Cooling / Noise Level   + -
As noted earlier, the TwinFrozr V cooler on this particular card is really powerful. We very much like the fact, that in idle this card is inaudible, since the fans are not spinning at all. Under load the card is still very silent and the cooler maintains a maximum temperature of 73°C, which is a actually a rather low temperature target.   - Inaudible in 2D
- Silent in 3D
 
 
Performance   + -

Compared to the reference design, this card features a massive 204 MHz factory overclock regarding the boost clock. Therefore the performance is significantly higher, than what you would be getting from a reference card. On average you can expect this particular card to be about 19 percent faster than the reference GTX 980 Ti. MSI even overclocked the memory chips by 100 MHz.

When it comes to power consumption we see that our system burns 68 Watts in idle and 321 Watts under full load. Overall power consumption is on the level we expected it to be and the high quality power design helps scraping off a few Watts every here and there.

  - Perforamnce
- Factory OC
 
Recommendation / Price   + -
At the moment we find this card listed in Europe for 718 Euro. At this price point the MSI GTX 980 Ti Gaming 6 GB is anything but cheap, but keeping in mind that this is one of the fastest single GPU cards available today, the price is adequate. As we already mentioned the this custom card costs about 50 Euro more than the cheapest reference model, and keeping in mind, that you get a great cooler as well as a complex custom PCB, the can be justified. Should you be looking for a seriously fast single GPU card and should the price not be a concern, then this is an excellent choice.   - 2160p Gaming
- Silent PC
 
The MSI GTX 980 Ti Gaming 6 GB receives excellent 5 out of 5 stars.
