This model can be overclocked to 60hz, but still maybe not the best choice for gaming with his current set up. I was actually going to make this same thread before i decided to just get the 1080, from everything that i have gathered an upgrade from a 980 to 1070 wouldn't really be worth it. They have thermal throttle in the drivers. I would choose a Buy it Now type sale if you can look up the value people are getting for their recently sold listings of the same card, used - set it a bit high and allow people to make offers on it. Which is really the other issue. My last card was a 690, so going to a 1070 has been pretty substantial. As past owner of G1 980Ti week ago, and now G1 1070 owner, I must say that 980Ti is better card despite slightly higher numbers in syntethic benchmarks on side for 1070.
Beg to differ all you want but you have subpar equipment trying to speak to equipment you don't own. Parallax Parallax occlusion mapping Stones 269 fps 349 fps Better peak texture detail. And a 100W would hardly impact the power bill unless it's calculated unrealistically. Age Newest 49 Months 36 Months More recent. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices offer more computational power. Not snooty dude just telling you how it is. I've seen review after review showing that the 980 Ti stock and 1070 stock are fairly evenly matched in every test.
The benches were run at 1920×1080, 2560×1440, and at 3840×2160. This honestly can't be said enough. Benchmarks Rather than limiting this test to a dozen or so titles, we wanted to aim for at least 30. When it comes to raw power, the 1070 Ti has a noticeably higher base and boost clock than the 1080 Ti does. Please ensure you include your system specs when asking a question about your build. Overall, that's a shady move to increase sales from the enthusiast market.
And with speed which they are developing new graphics cards I don't think that there is a need for longer duration from what we already had. Before I owned a 1080ti and 1440p monitor I owned a 1080p monitor and 1070. But if you can get a 980 Ti for as cheap as you said? Interestingly, they don't list the settings used for a lot of the games in the 980 Ti review, but they do in the 1070 review, so it's still hard to call them completely out on that. It just gives you a better idea of the design and how fast it runs as designed. Comparing performance between the shows that the newer 1070 wins by a whopping 50%. Upgrading from a 980 to a 1070 seems a tad silly to me.
If it's even cheaper than one of those I'd say it's worth it I guess. You're absolutely certifiable if you think the 1070 is going to get you that much more benifit over a 980 Ti. Also, with Tom's reviews, if you look at the actual 980 Ti ref review. Just watch wackyjacky101's videos on this subject. Holy crap I just realized you're running a 30hz monitor.
But basically I don't expect the overclock to give me a drastically different card. Heck right now with my 1050ti at 1080p i average 90-110 consistently with peaks higher. But it also makes overclocking that much easier. Granted, 1070 Ti utilizes a newer and smaller chip, but that is unlikely to yield palpable results in any department but the power consumption. As a result of the die shrink from 28 to 16 nm, Pascal based cards are more energy efficient than their predecessors. Might want to consider 2 things! Because my card is going up to 62c, so on 55c and 60c points I lose couple mhz. Parallax occlusion mapping Stones 231 fps 303 fps Much better texture detail.
From what I understand the 1080 is the first viable card for 4K resolutions, but still doesn't run most games well. I've never really had this compulsion of having to run every game on max settings at 60fps. Then lower it eventually if it's not selling. I'm sure that you understand that, as I do your thinking, but overall Maxwell was better deal in terms of overclocking. With the right tweaking i think you could achieve that. I'm just disappointed that Nvidia and a lot of major review sites lied or exaggerated. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one.
And i have a 240hz gysnc monitor as well from alienware. Simply disaggree or present your facts. Im really just trying to help you out. That's nothing really to write home about. Don't forget to also take a look at the remainder of the Discord rules while you are at it! The last game in this round is Far Cry New Dawn. I also play on it with 4gb gtx770 and although my fps are capped at 100, I'm usually around 70-80 in game so you would have no issue. Discord Join the Discord by clicking on the button below.
If you happen to live in an area where electricity is expensive as all hell then the 1070 might save you a few bucks over the course of the lifetime of the card. How long it will remain unmatched is up in the air at this point. Started a couple of patches ago for me, used to get much higher frames but no longer. I haven't had time to game for more than maybe 3-4 hours straight,but top temp I've had since purchase was 78c. Before I owned a 1080ti and 1440p monitor I owned a 1080p monitor and 1070.
