As expected the GTX980 AMP! Omega performs the best of all cards.

Metro Last Light


Setting: Very High, 16xAF

We get a moderate increase in framerate over the eVGA GTX 780Ti. The Zotac 980 GTX does not completely reach and average framerate of 60 fps at 2560×1440 but it is close and some extra overclocking should help it achieve that.

Bioshock Infinite


Setting: Using Adrenaline Benchmark Tool: Ultra, 16xAF

NOTE: The GTX780Ti scores are wrong (we accidently entered the 960 AMP!-scores for it). The true GTX 780Ti scores are 137,8 fps (1920×1080) and 101,1 (2560×1440). The Zotac GTX 980 AMP! Omega-edition card again comes out on top scoring a few frames extra over the old champion the GTX780Ti.

Sleeping Dogs

This is a game that seems not to benefit from a high-end video card as much as other games. This is evident from the fact that there is little difference between the GTX 970 and the GTX 980 and that the GTX 780 Ti basically ties with the GTX 980.

Shadow of Mordor


Setting: Very High

This is a newer game and also benefits a lot from the faster video card. We see an impressive 30+ fps increase over the GTX 780Ti at 1080p and 20+ fps at 2560×1440. Impressive.

The Steam Deck – Valve delivers an excellent PC handheld

Valve is an interesting company that seems to try to be a lot of things at the same time. Games company, software hub/store and hardware company. Valve is all of these. When it comes to hardware the company has had mixed success. I think many of us remember the Steam Machines. These compact computers running SteamOS, a Linux based OS, were supposed to make Windows PC’s obsolete for gaming. They didn’t succeed. Valve also released a specific controller, the Steam Controller, which also did not exactly set the world on fire. In hindsight though both these products have paved the way for the product I am testing today, the Steam Deck, Valves attempt to compete with the Nintendo Switch in the handheld market.
