Introduction of the ASUS GTX 980 4GB in Single, SLI, 3-Way SLI and 4-Way SLI
It's been a while since we've done a 4K Showdown with the articles mainly being reserved for some of the highest-end product launches. The new Maxwell series of video cards from NVIDIA are not only fast, but also exciting thanks to the aggressive performance at an equally aggressive price point that has really put the hurt on AMD.
With a couple of extra GTX 980 4GB video cards on hand today thanks to ASUS, we're going to kick up our GTX 980 4GB testing a notch, and a big notch at that.
With four GTX 980 4GB cards on hand, we've got the opportunity today to test our gaming line up with the strongest video card setup to date. Outside of testing our benchmark line up with the four GTX 980 4GB, we'll also be seeing how one, two and three perform alongside it to give us an idea of just what these different setups are capable of achieving on the gaming front.
While we are using ASUS cards today, they didn't come in full retail package and they follow the reference design in both cooling and clocks. Because of that, we won't be going into any extra detail on the cards themselves. Instead, we'll be moving from here into our test system setup.
So, let's move forward and see what these setups are capable of right now over the following pages.
