Thief
For this first test, I decided to use Thief's built-in automated benchmark, since we can't measure performance with AMD's Mantle API using Fraps. Unfortunately, this benchmark is pretty simplistic, with only FPS average(as well as a maximum and minimum numbers, for all that's worth.)

Welp, this is a pretty nice start for the GTX 980. Nvidia's newest is faster than anything else we tested at both resolutions, and the GTX 970 isn't far behind. The fastest single-GPU Radeon, the R9 290X, can't quite keep up, even when using AMD's proprietary Mantle API.

The generational increase from the GK104-based GTX 770 to the GM204-based GTX 980 is enormous.
