That’s it, I’m getting a pair of those new GTX 980. Hopefully some non-reference cards get a release date soon.

Just disappointed NVIDIA couldn’t have stayed with some extra SMX units and the 384-bit bus that the GTX 780 had.

goddamnit ZK! D:<…

@kyerea:

Gaussian filters = post-process anti-aliasing….. it’s just another form of AA. Don’t buy it just for DSR.

GTX 900 series are better for that low power consumption, so GPU Boost is better and good overclocking. Plus it comes natively with 4GB of VRAM. I’m getting a pair of GTX 980 for the extreme overclocking and the extra 1GB……. umph, that 6K resolution is getting closer and closer.

@wanakoworks:

12% better than the GTX 780, with 1GB extra memory *unzips pants*

I have the Classified-variant of the GTX 780. So mine already has 4GB of RAM. Trust me when I say the 1 extra GB of VRAM space doesn’t do much outside of Skyrim modding.

As it is, I think I’ll wait a couple of months before I purchase the GTX 980. I thought it would be much better, benchmark-wise, in the performance sector than it turned out to be in-comparison to the GTX 780. Don’t get me wrong, the 980 is still a great card. But I want to wait a couple of months on this one. At least until a superior variant, or pre-OC’d model comes out.

I may get it for the DSR-feature. That shit is sick dude. It renders in 4K, then applies a Gaussian filter to downsample the image back into 1080p for a monitor. Now I won’t need to downsample from 4K! i.e. less taxing on the GPU as a process.

Grim Winter Redux - Extra Clippings

ZeroKing is gettting closer to releasing his new GW ENB, and trainwiz is nearing completion of WoL. So I’ll be getting back into Skyrim on Monday, after I do some mod-updating, and trying out some new, and very nice 4K parallax retexture/remeshes. Regardless, I will have some new stuff up tomorrow.

Also be sure to check out Alana12’s latest mod release on Nexus: Sunhallowed, and Bloodcursed Arrow HD Retextures on Nexus.You might remember that I did a Kye’s Mod Review-Corner episode regarding the same retextures by Alana12. Well, they are out on Nexus now. Additionally, she’ll be releasing the Auriel’s Quiver HD Retexture/Redesign on Nexus sometime this week.

House of Cards

Plopped down, and started watching it on Netflix. Gotta say, Kevin Spacey’s role as Francis Underwood is one of his best acted roles to date. And that’s saying quite a lot.

Also, there’s something hilariously adorable about Frank being a gamer.

Thoughts on the show thus far: I work as a staffer for a certain political party’s campaign & elections dep’t. For the most part, the show hits the nail right on the head. It’s pretty damn close as to what goes on behind closed doors. In fact, Francis Underwood is reminding me more, and more of a former House Speaker that we had back in FSC. Good stuff.
