gtx 1080 + i7 6700k vs gtx 1070 + i5 4690

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello guys, i recently bought Asus Rog Strix gtx 1080 but i m in a dilemma now after having a stutter experience while fast sync is on. I play games like WoW, Dota 2, Doom 4, Need for Speed 2015... It wud be better to give my 1080 back and get 1070 + upgrade my i5 4690 to i7 6700k or it s better like this now ( 1080 + i5 4690) ? I saw that gaming wise there is so little difference between those CPU s i think but i wanted to get opinions, i be happy if u help me decide plz, thank you.

Yeah, I don't think the CPU would help nearly as much as 1080 is helping against 1070. I would keep it.

Is this stutter present only in fast sync mode ? also,make sure you have the 368.95 hotfix driver which solves the dpc lateny related stutter on pascal cards, if you had one.
I'd take 1080+4690, should have higher min fps and avg fps still despite running a slower cpu

I had stutter when fast sync on. After i closed it i didnt see in 2 hours of gameplay also my benchmark test: first one while fast sync on and second one while fast sync off. Min. fps increased...

seems like fast sync is the problem here, not the components. trading 4690/1080 for 6700/1070 wouldn't change much, it'd be a downgrade in my book.
I haven't played much with this fast sync option since I run g-sync but seems like it's not fully functional yet

Yeah, ummm ... to what the others have said, let me just add that If there's ever been a time to completely ignore the statistic "Min FPS", in the history of the known universe ... it's the one you see in the Heaven benchmark. It's literally like 1 frame, right near the beginning, and it's been happening with like the last 7 generations of video cards ... iow every single one that's come out since that benchmark did.

It literally means nothing. Run that bench 20 times in a row w/o changing a single thing on your system and you'll probably see it vary by up to like 300% (between highest and lowest) over the course of your 20 runs. Kinda like you see between these two runs wink.gif
