Revisting the GTX 980 Ti

Now that they have had time with the new NVIDIA card to test on games both familiar and new, [H]ard|OCP have put together a longer review of the GTX 980 Ti.  The Witcher 3 shows that for 4K gamers, the extra power of the TITAN does marginally beat out the newcomer.  Indeed that tended to hold true in many games, Dying Light and Far Cry 4 all saw the 980 Ti needing to lower graphical settings to remain at a decent frame rate but still remained a far better value for those gaming at 1440p.  They compare VRAM usage at 1440p versus 4K resolutions and it is obvious how much more memory is consumed as resolution increases.  Considering how none of the games tested used even half of the 12GB of VRAM on the TITAN it will be very interesting to see how AMD's new smaller sized but higher bandwidth HBM-based card will perform.

"Now that we have had some solid gaming time with the new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti, we will be putting it up against the GTX 980 and TITAN X video cards, in the full HardOCP GPU review format. We are including new games, The Witcher 3 and Grand Theft Auto V. We also look at VRAM utilization and power and temperature levels."

Bit hard for anybody to get upset or something. There are not even reviews yet for Fury and co.

And leaked benches (if real, cannot ever discount fakeness) didn't show something extraordinary...

No, no it's obviously not hard at all.

If you can not play UHD Bluray or HDR or Netflix 4K with NVIDIA 960/970/980
what HDCP 2.2 it is ?
what hdmi 2.0 it is ?
you can't have DCI - P3 coloer
NVIDIA data bandwidth 10.2 GB WHY NOT 18GBPS ?

all information is cut Above 10.2GBPS
so what HDMI 2.0 it is ? nvidia style ?
why nvidia no registers data bandwidth ? 8.75 ? 10.2 ?
