Paving the way for its next-generation "Pascal" architecture-based performance-thru-enthusiast GPUs, NVIDIA reportedly halted further production of certain current-generation "Maxwell" GPUs. HWBattle reports that production of the GM204-based GeForce GTX 980, the popular GTX 970, and GM200-based GTX 980 Ti have seen production halts, to let the market digest existing inventories of the three cards; and letting NVIDIA's add-in card (AIC) partners prepare to stock up next-generation graphics cards, beginning with at least three SKUs based on the GP104 silicon, in June 2016.

So whats next Nvidia halting driver "optimization" for Maxwell

As predictable as predictable comments get. Going for that latest WCCFtech comment gold star to add to your sizeable collection.

This is exactly what happened to 780 Ti. Its just optimization for previous generation becomes least of their priority.

It's not a matter of priority. You can't take 3 years worth of Kepler optimizations and optimize them some more even if you wanted to. That's simply not how optimizations work.

Im using a 780 TI, two actually.
No slow-downs, as its backed up by knowing its still generally faster than a GTX 970, not even considering its massive 25%+ OC.
Can't say I've noticed any general drop in relative performance with my dual GTX 780's either. Sure I can't enable every feature, but that's the price of progress.

The law of diminishing returns. I'll expect big jumps in optimization performance when new games are optimized for older architectures.

Well you shouldn't have 2 of anything in SLI in the first place, as soon 980TiOC was available.
Now we are lead to believe that all of the GM200 production managed such high yields, just 256 cores were disabled and there will be no GM200 2560 Core Edition like the 560Ti 448 Edition at 279$.

Funny my HD 7970 GHZ started its journey racing with GTX 680 later with GTX 770, later with GTX 780 and now its slightly slower compared to GTX 780Ti and GTX 970. Your definition of performance expectancy from a graphic card is quiet different then mine.

I'm running that 780ti Kepler card you speak of, and the fact is that it still runs past the 970 left and right, just like it did on launch of the 970.

It's a different architecture. 780ti wins in every game that doesn't use extreme amounts of tesselation. The Tesselation engine in Maxwell has been improved

1+1 = 2, Apples and Oranges, and all that. Also: get some knowledge on the subject before you start copy pasting Youtube, Twitter and Reddit ramblings that go viral.

And so are your performance numbers. A 7970 doesn't come close to a 970 or 780Ti. Unless you are believe 30% is "slightly slower". Look at that summary at 1080p...
https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/ASUS/R9_380X_Strix/23.html

380x = ~280x = 7970.

= GTX 680/770 to translate it to green. (roughly) Nothing changed. Relax. *Tonga (380x) did give it some more oomph though.
Quite relaxed. Just sharing some facts. ;)

There wasn't any IPC bump though.. it, like many of their other cards, are a straight rebrand with perhaps more memory or

C'mon Mr @Fluffmeister, @GhostRyder isn't bad at all. He's actually quite measured and decent. He's certainly not an AMD fanboy but probably takes exception to certain posts that 'snipe'. He's definitely not anywhere like the other chap you mention.

Genuinely, Ghosty's a nice person (I truly believe). And you're no monster either. Let's all hug?

Seems like a fundamental lack of being able to interpret my post, and faulty reasoning if you don't mind me saying.

Allow me to reiterate:
Can't say I've noticed any general drop in relative performance with my dual GTX 780's either. Sure I can't enable every feature, but that's the price of progress.
For those games I have played that have spanned a significant (or complete) portion of the ownership of my cards, I have noticed no real degradation in performance - the relative performance across games taking into account patches or games based upon a common engine. I also don't suffer from unexplained score drops in benchmarks such as Heaven or 3DM.
Now for a couple of points that aren't directly connected with what I mentioned but are related to your Nvidia versus AMD argument:
Games now (and in the future) generally aren't optimized for a Kepler cards. AMD does however have a vested interest in having games optimized for GCN - an architecture that also gains in relation to DX12*
Secondly, my 780's run stock at 780 Ti performance levels. Even with an older CPU at stock (as are the graphics cards) I don't see any 7970's posting similar scores to the one I've posted.

* If I have a choice of running DX11 or DX12 and the latter offers no graphical improvements of the former then I don't/wouldn't run DX12 if the DX11 code path offers better performance. This flies in the face of tech site benchmarking where comparisons are generally dictated upon a single code path and graphical quality setting..

You are clearly Green Team, yet the difference you and I is a majority of my posts are not troll attempts to derail a thread like your recent ones today on the Fury thread or even on your profile.

Hey at least you thanked my post, people getting instantly defensive on the other hand is quite telling. :toast:
I don't spend my time trying to troll or derail threads unlike you. Heck your posts in threads that you clearly have no interest in are only there to try to troll/derail/talk down to others. Case and point...

Point is, once in awhile would be funny. Constantly is annoying from anyone regardless of the side is going towards.

C'mon Mr @Fluffmeister, @GhostRyder isn't bad at all. He's actually quite measured and decent. He's certainly not an AMD fanboy but probably takes exception to certain posts that 'snipe'. He's definitely not anywhere like the other chap you mention.

Its not funny when its a constant thing regardless of who it is. I am just tired of his constant trolling on every thread that pops up with AMD in the title. Heck there are a bunch of people that do it far to often as well, but Fluff just does it at an even more constant rate then others and its getting quite old since it can and has started thread derailment (No I am not blaming him exclusively either since this thread basically suffered the same problem from others). I tire of constant derailments as it makes it hard to talk about the products or if this issue is a big deal when half the thread is filled with "My card is better than your card" arguments.
