Mega multi eGPU benchmark: GTX 780 Ti - 980 - 980 Ti

Super Highend Hackintosh 32GB RAM - quad core i7 4,5Ghz (overclock)

MacBook Pro 2016  8GB RAM - dual core i5 2,9Ghz

 

I think eGPU result are IMPRESSIVE considering the configuration differences.

Glad I went with the 980 over the 780ti then! Similar Mac and better Windows performance. 

Soon I will add my system & eGPU details or a build link to this my signature to give context to my posts

Yes but you can find 780 Ti very cheap and optimization shine in Mac side.

@ikir Would you say the only problem with the 780 Ti is still the power consumption if gtx980 can still be powered by Dell DA-2 but 780 Ti cannot?

I tried with a 500W pc psu and it was not enough, now I have a 750w! If you search online there are video which show on the the same PC a 80W difference between 980 and 780 Ti

I wouldn't expect a 980 to do very well on DA-2. I have to underclock and underpower my Zotac 970 to make it stable with DA-2. (Stock clocks and even a mild overclock at 100% or 110% power are ok for Heaven benchmarks, but explosions/fire effects while gaming will trip and shut down the DA-2. Right now I'm mostly but not completely stable at 90% power and -50 mhz core [max ~ 1228 mhz boost], still getting the occasional shutdown.)
