From Hardware BBQ:

Like I said, Zotac 780Ti is an overclocked version of its reference counterpart, and on top of it, it has a much higher TDP compared to GTX 980 reference. It’s a no-brainer that people will be picking up GTX 980 over GTX 780Ti. Things changed. When usually cards come out, a good amount of people would buy the previous generation which would usually have a price cut. In this case, you’ll end up thinking if it’s even worth it. If a reference card has 250w TDP, imagine a non-reference counterpart. You also have to consider that the bus bandwidth is 256-bit, Vs. 384-bit. Nvidia holds the ground nicely even as a reference version.

From TechPowerUp!:

To me, the GeForce GTX 980 is the best reference design graphics card to launch in a while. NVIDIA has successfully addressed the most important challenge in today’s GPU design, which is power consumption.

Score: 9.6 out of 10

From Benchmark Reviews:

In conclusion, GeForce GTX 980 is the energy-efficient version of GTX TITAN with a decisive lead beyond what AMD’s Radeon R9 290X can produce. Even if it were possible for the competition to retool and overclock R9 290X to reach similar frame rate performance, which it’s not, temperatures and noise would still very heavily favor GeForce GTX 980. There is a modest price difference between them, but quite frankly, the competition doesn’t belong in the same class and will likely see major price reductions to remain relevant.

Score: 9.1 out of 10

From TweakTown:

As of now, with the R9 290X 4GB being priced how it is, I’d be hard press to recommend it over this new NVIDIA GPU. Yes, video cards with upgraded coolers are going to cost a little bit more, but in the end, people don’t want a card that is nearly 12 months old, when they can get something that is only 12 hours old.

Score: 93%
