NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 SLI Mobile vs AMD Radeon Pro 570X
Comparison of graphics card architecture, market segment, value for money and other general parameters.
General performance parameters such as number of shaders, GPU core clock speeds, manufacturing process, texturing and calculation speed. These parameters indirectly speak of performance, but for precise assessment you have to consider their benchmark and gaming test results.
Compatibility, dimensions and requirements
Information on GeForce GTX 980 SLI Mobile and Radeon Pro 570X compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For desktop video cards it's interface and bus (motherboard compatibility), additional power connectors (power supply compatibility). For notebook video cards it's notebook size, connection slot and bus, if the video card is inserted into a slot instead of being soldered to the notebook motherboard.
Parameters of memory installed: its type, size, bus, clock and resulting bandwidth. Note that GPUs integrated into processors don't have dedicated memory and use a shared part of system RAM.
Video outputs and ports
Types and number of video connectors present on the reviewed GPUs. As a rule, data in this section is precise only for desktop reference ones. OEM manufacturers may change the number and type of output ports, while for notebook cards availability of certain video outputs ports depends on the laptop model rather than on the card itself.
APIs supported, including particular versions of those APIs.
Advantages of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 SLI Mobile
Cheaper ($301 vs $2299)
More pipelines (4096 vs 1792)
CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture - an API for video card computing power usage in tasks different from 3D graphics processing. Can be used for physics simulation for instance)
PhysX (hardware acceleration of physical simulation engine named PhysX)
G-SYNC (removes screen tearing by telling the display when to renew the image. Only works with G-SYNC compatible displays)
Advantages of AMD Radeon Pro 570X
Much newer (18 March 2019 vs 22 September 2015)
Finer manufacturing process technology (14 vs 28 nm)
Lower power consumption (120W vs 330W), meaning that the rival with higher TDP might require a better cooler or other thermal solution.
So, which one is the better CPU?
Technical City couldn't decide between NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 SLI Mobile and AMD Radeon Pro 570X. We've got no test results to judge.
Be aware that GeForce GTX 980 SLI Mobile is a notebook card while Radeon Pro 570X is a workstation one.
