Im currently using a radeon hd 7970 in my pc and a gtx 970M in my laptop
Wondering if the cost justifies the increase in performance going to a gtx 980 ?
Below is a picture that shows PassMark G3D BenchMark scores
According to the picture, should I be getting almost twice as much fps with a 980 compared to 7970?
I mentioned my 970m in my laptop because its confusing, the score is alot lower than the 7970 but yet I get higher fps in different projects in ue4 on my laptop card than the 7970
So im not sure just how much of an increase I would get, my 7970 is kind of old though like 3 years
I’m just tired of seeing such low fps in the engine though I’ve been wondering why lighting on plain terrain is such a high impact on fps and well Its probably because to have non-baked dynamic lighting and everything realtime, thats next gen and next gen requires next gen hardware
Since my project probably wont be finished for 1-2 years maybe this is an investment I should make since most people will have 980 power by then?
And also I hear that ue4 does not support SLI (I was planning to do 970x2 instead) so another reason for the 980
