GTX 980 Ti or wait for GTX 1070? - Page 9

Just timing, I reckon. All depends on what they have in stock at the warehouse the day a particular RMA is processed. A day either way, I might have gotten a regular 980 or even another 780ti. To be honest, I'd have been perfectly happy with a reference 780ti replacement, would've slapped my old waterblock on it, and got on with life.

A pair of regular 980s (Classified or otherwise), not so much. I'm a 1440p 60Hz guy with no plans to upgrade this monitor any time soon, so the marginal performance increases and the extra gig of (smaller bandwidth) RAM doesn't help me too much at all, and doesn't offset the cost of two new waterblocks, plus I've already invested into a loop that can handle the 780ti SLI setup so the power savings ain't no thing either.

I don't feel guilty about the 980ti upgrade though, I paid over 700 euro each for those cards back in 2013, that was right at $1000 USD per card at the time (not including the water blocks), and they're selling new "A-stock" of that particular 980ti Classified on their website for $450 right now.

I am in the 980ti or 1070 boat, and now it has become an even harder decision as I can get a new Gigabyte G1 gaming 980ti for roughly $100aud cheaper than most AIB 1070's ($663 vs $749AUD).. I'm mostly sure I want to go the 1070, but there is that part of me siding with the 980ti. Obviously the 980ti is better value at that price, but I'm also taking into consideration the driver improvements for the 1070 over time (which they could be minimal), the extra vram, better dx12 support, better efficiency etc. But saving nearly $100aud for similar performance is really REALLY tempting.. Any thoughts?

The main advantages you should think about is power consumption and lower noise...1070 consume significantly less power than a 980Ti, performance wise they are pretty much neck to neck...the difference is so minimal that you won't notice at all. The price gap here for a 980Ti vs 1070 is about $100 too. I'd just bite the bullet and get the 1070, i feel like you're going to regret the 980Ti...i'm more than happy with mine however, but i might get a 1070 on the next build.

Something to consider:

http://www.evga.com/articles/01029/evga-17th-anniversary-sale/

$389 for a ref clocked 980ti Classified, $399 for a new EVGA 980ti FTW, $429 for a 980ti Hybrid or full-speed Classifed.

Lets see what gtx1060 can do. Maybe overclocked 1060 is same as 980ti

Personally, judging form previous "technology jumps" announced over years- I highly doubt it.

Imo DX12 at ONE point will start to be really better overall than DX11, like really visible.

But then I will be probably buying 1280Ti or 1180Ti smile.gif

True, not noticeable from the data I've seen (but neither is the difference between many GPUs, honestly, haha), but absolutely measurable. DICE's Frosbite engine just gobbles up IPC. There's a big reason DICE was the first developer to add a Mantle patch.

Hi,

My name is Johan Andersson and I’m one of the Technical Directors in the Frostbite team and I have something very exciting to share with all Battlefield players: the latest Battlefield 4 update on PC includes the long-awaited new renderer in Frostbite that is using AMD’s Mantle.

Mantle is a new low-level graphics API that we’ve been working very closely with AMD on over the last 2 years and it is a major change & improvement to how we are able to program & use modern GPUs in order to get the most out of them.

Battlefield 4 on PC is already quite heavily optimized using DirectX 11 and DirectX 11.1, but with Mantle we are able to go even further: we’ve significantly reduced CPU cost in our rendering, efficiently parallelized it over multiple CPU cores and reduced overhead in many areas.

The biggest performance gains can be seen when the game is bottlenecked by the CPU which can be quite common even on high-end machines and this was main goal to improve on with Mantle. We’ve also been able to streamline and optimize some of the GPU workload. The end result is that game performance is improved in virtually all scenarios in Battlefield 4 on both Windows 7 and Windows 8 when running with Mantle!

From Tom's Hardware tesing of BF4 Mantle patch, even an i7-4770K (290X on Ultra 1440p) got a 10% boost in minimum FPS and 7% increase in average FPS. And then data from AMD, which is actually pretty damn accurate,




10% boost in a GPU-bound scenario? Yes, please. I play at 120Hz, so my CPU is on double-duty, yo. I guess...the more important question...will DX12 games show differences between 900-series and 10-series cards? Or does it only matter on your CPU?

So does anyone have more info can you overclock gtx1060 same power as stock gtx980ti?
