Are these normal results from a 980 to 1070 jump?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Ok so I upgraded from an reference EVGA 980 to a Founder's Edition EVGA 1070 and am just wondering if my results are a bit low compared to what I'm seeing elsewhere. Witcher maxed out with hairworks on my 980 was getting 63fps in the spot that I left it at, now with the 1070 It's more at high 80s low 90s. For some reason Overwatch didn't seem to change in performance at all it seems. Also, here is my Firestrike test. My 980 was at 10581, while this is 13166, but on benchmarks online I'm seeing the 1070 get 16000-17000 at stock. Here's time spy as well. 1070 was 5148, 980 was 3884. Is there something wrong here? I'm on 368.95 drivers too and in these games tested my GPU usage is pegged at 100 the vast majority of the time.

CPU & RAM - if you're looking at the same online benchmarks as me (guru3d, anandtech, pcgamer etc) they're running 6-8 core CPU's at 4.4+ GHz with 32gb ddr4 at 3000+ Mhz. Also, are ypu comparing your overall score to their graphics score?

This to me looks exactly like what is to be expected.That is a significant boost.

Yea you guys are right, the physics score being higher for the results with better CPUs influence the overall score. I was just quick to assume something was wrong due to my inherently negative thinking nature haha.

Anyways, I probably won't be getting a new cpu for awhile, which would warrant a new mobo and ram, but for the time being, could I see any benefit to getting 16gb of ddr3 2400 ram?

You would see some fps differences on witcher 3 going from 1600mhz to 2400mhz but it's not worthit in my opinion. If you want more stable fps on witcher 3 ( novigrad or in dense forests ) just set the shadows to medium (you will see no difference) and turn down the view distance a notch.

Cool thanks for the recommendation. Already done with TW3 though, just got it back to bench the new card tongue.gif. Just figured I'm not going to be able to skate by with only 8gb of ram sooner than later.

yeah you are right, 8g of ram is gonna be a limitation in the future. if you plan to keep your 3570k another 2-3 years I would get the 2400mhz 16g rams thumb.gif

Sounds like a plan, thanks all for the help and putting my overly worrying self to rest lol.
