The GeForce GTX 980 seems to perform better than every other card that we’ve tested so far on medium settings. On Ultra, it performs at the same level that factory overclocked editions of the GTX 780 Ti does. Computational benchmarks puts the Maxwell architecture in league with the AMD GPUs who’d ruled this arena for quite a few generations. So overall, this card scores better than every other card that has graced the test center with its presence. 
Maxwell, does indeed deliver given that it uses less CUDA cores than Kepler to produce the same if not better results. At the end of the day, Maxwell uses lesser amount of transistors, occupies lesser area, consumer lesser wattage to produce better results overall in gaming as well as computational benchmarks.
However, a launch price of Rs.46,000 is indeed surprising and we hear that price cuts will be announced across the entire range within this week. This will make this card a really sweet deal to let pass by. NVIDIA aims to target majority of users who’re yet to buy a 700 series GPU. A recent survey showed that 68 percent of steam gamers have a 600 series or older GPU and with the lucrative pricing that the GTX 980 and the GTX 970 have launched today tells us that these gamers are going to find it hard pressed to not upgrade.
