[OverclockersClub]Overclock showdown: GTX 980Ti vs GTX 1070 vs GTX 1080 - Page 37

post #361 of 389
Just looking at pure specs you can see the 980ti potential and raw power.
1070 vs 980ti
1920 vs 2816 shaders = 47% more
120 vs 176 TMUs = 47% more
64 vs 96 ROPs = 50% more
256 vs 384 bus width = 50% more
2100 vs 1500 core clock = 40% more for 1070

The 1070 is weaker and tries to compensate with high clocks, sure it might beat stock 980ti, but the 980ti has higher relative OC to stock.
The maximum air/water overclock is 2100-2200 for 1070, while the 980ti manages 1500 on air and 1600-1700 on water(destroying the 1070), the only reason to consider the 1070 at same price, is the much lower TDP when overclocked.

The 1080 on the other hand, while it has worse specs than 980ti, the higher core clocks and GDDR5X allow it to stay ahead at a much lower TDP.

The 980Ti really holds its own when gaming at 4k - most times it is only behind the 1080 by 5-10 fps. They really built this card to last. I would have already grabbed a 1080, but for 5-10fps, it just isn't worth it yet. Hoping a Ti variant or the next iterations blow the doors off of 4k. thumb.gif

my 2GHz 1080 seems a fair bit faster than 980Ti I had, now I'm playing TW3 at 100-110 fps avg @1440p on high settings, 980Ti was hovering around 80-90 fps @1.5GHz. Not a huge gap by any means though, but definitely faster overall. Would never trade them if it weren't for the deal I managed to strike. The nicest thing is the min fps increase I see with 1080 cause 980Ti as powerful as it is could still drop below 50 fps in intense fighting,which is not okay by my standards, despite g-sync.

980Ti definitely produces a lot more heat, it's not a very big deal though.

The specs of the 980Ti are quite irrelevant now, when comparing to Pascal GPUs. Just like we don't compare how great the 780Ti was against the 980, and barely matches the 980. At the end of the day, the 1070 maxed out will match a maxed out 980 ti with a lower TDP, lower retail price, and VR features (SMP). The only reason anyone would buy a 980 Ti now is for SLI.

I bought a 980ti because it was much cheaper than a 1070. Clearance sales are a great concept!

Someone help me with my dilemma please smile.gif

I have a Zotac 980ti Amp Extreme which boosts to 1460 out of the box, but recently acquired an Asus Strix gtx 1070 for a deal that was just too good to pass up.

Should I even bother opening it to try and compare the two or just put the sealed sucker up on ebay?

I game at 1440p.

Only benefit I see is lower power draw and more memory (though I think memory wouldn't come into play unless 4k becomes common)

Any opinions?

Sell that 1070. It's not worth it to open it. And the 980 Ti is slightly faster in performance.

The only 1070 that's worth having is the msi one,they use some secret sauce that allows for better performance just look at techpowerup and other reviews,but it is in the $500 price point,otherwise a $400 980ti is a better bet as long as it can oc to at least 1460-1470mhz core,the only concern is the 6gb vram crazy as it sounds for 1440p gaming.

I agree with this ofc.
post #370 of 389
Nope. I had a MSI seahawk x gtx1080 @2088 vs my 980ti @ 1450mhz.

The gtx1080 was only 15% faster.
