980 Ti --> 1070: Bad idea! - Page 2

post #11 of 32
^^ what they said.

Newer tech, newer features, similar performance. Less power usage and less heat.

I'm still on the fence on whether I should try to sell my 980 ti as well as the 1070 may hold onto it's value a bit longer than the 980 ti a year from now when the 1080 ti hits the market

I had heard about how Nvidia screwed over 700 series owners on the driver support also. If they ever get this G-Sync/FreeSync cross compatibility going I'll probably go back to AMD as they have a better track record of long-term support...

I stepped-up my 980Ti Hybrtid bought in April for a 1080 Founder Edition, pretty confident that it will be a decent upgrade for me on 4K and it cost me nothing more than 2 weeks and $30 in shipping.

Unless you're on a tight budget I'd suggest buying a 1080. Cheapest custom card is 669€ in Europe: http://geizhals.de/kfa-geforce-gtx-1080-ex-oc-80nsj6dhl4ek-a1449263.html?hloc=at&hloc=de Another option is EVGA ACX 3.0 for 679€ http://eu.evga.com/Products/Product.aspx?pn=08G-P4-6181-KR

Overclocked 1080 will be comfortably faster than oc'd 980 Ti, 15-20%.

Edit: I know even the cheapest 1080 is overpriced. It doesn't have a great price/performance value, but if you want something faster than 980 Ti, 1080 is the only option.

Thanks for the reply. I know that prices for the 1080.
I just want to buy a card that I can use for 2-4 years and I thought that the better preis/performance-relation were the 1070.

I'm starting to think 980 Ti ---> 1080 isn't such a great idea either. As more of these 3rd party cards are reviewed, there's something we're learning with the 1080 : the overclock headroom just isn't there. Overclocking the 1080 simply doesn't widen the gap nearly as much as overclocking the 980 Ti closes it. The 1080 is still faster, but is it worth hundreds of dollars over an overclocked 980 Ti? In the last week, I haven't really been thinking so.

money is a thing:
970-->1070 NOT FOUNDERS
980ti--->wait end of year or later for 1080ti or amd something.

money is not a thing:
sli 1080 now and later whatever new come out.

I switched from a 980TI to a GTX 1080 and offcourse the difference isn't staggering as we knew on forehand but my minimun FPS went up quite a bit so for me it was a upgrade on 4k.
Battlefront on 4K almost never drops below 60 @ ultra settings no AA.
On 4k my 1080 @ stock was faster than my overclocked 980ti

A lot of 980ti owners dont think the 1080 is fast enough for an upgrade....why would you think the step down version would be tongue.gif

I suppose if you sold it for a good price you might be able to get another used one for even cheaper
