In some benchmarks from Computerbase, the GTX 980 Ti with the latest GeForce 358.50 drivers beat (even if it's just by 0.4FPS) the Radeon R9 Fury X with its new Catalyst 15.10 drivers. If we compare the older 355.60 drivers to the new 358.50 drivers, the GTX 980 Ti secures itself a pretty decent 11% increase in performance. Comparing the Catalyst 15.8 and 15.10 drivers, the R9 Fury X jumps by 6%. All of the other cards from both AMD and NVIDIA see performance increases with the latest drivers installed, too.
