Is it worth to update from ZOTAC 980 Ti AMP! Omega to Palit Gamerock 1070 for 60€ difference?

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
Hello guys,

actually I am using a 980 Ti AMP! Omega from Zotac. If I sell the card I can get a "Palit Gamerock 1070" for only 60€ more.

So my question is,what do you think? Does it worth it?


Pro 980 Ti: a little bit faster,higher memory bandwith

Pro 1070: 2GB more memory,lower power consumption,better DX12 Performance

If you're planning on doing VR or multi-monitor, yes, the GTX 1070 is better.
If no, keep the 980 Ti. It is slightly faster when overclocked.

No, I am only using 1 monitor 95% of the time. Sometimes when there are several football matches or stuff like that I am also using a second screen/monitor.

And what about the power consumption and DX12 performance?

Could I save through the lower power consumption so much money when I am using the card for 3 years?

I guess that one is up to you. It is true that the 1070 will consume a lot less power and be better for DX12 in the future. However, when you consider that your 980 Ti is actually faster NOW, I'd say the 1070 would be a sidegrade at best, and a downgrade at worst.

Don't look at specs (memory bandwidth). Look at raw performance. If I were in your shoes, I would keep the 980 Ti.

Okay thanks! smile.gif

One last question. Because of the lower power consumption of the 1070,could I save these 60€ when I would use the 1070 instead of the 980Ti for 3 years? smile.gif

And I think when a game in future is not be playable on a 980Ti,it wont be playable on a 1070,may I be right? smile.gif

I have no clue what your normal power bill is over there, but it would probably yield a $5-10 savings per year for me. If the rate is about the same for you, it definitely is not worth the power savings.

As far as playable games, let me put it this way. I have 2 1070's in SLI right now. I think the ONLY game that has gone over 6GB VRAM, even with games completely maxed out @ 3440x1440 or 5160x2160 (DSR) is The Division. Now, bear in mind, this is playing games at settings that are much higher than a single 1070 or 980 Ti could handle comfortably. Because of this, I would highly doubt that 6GB VRAM will become a liability in the future, and if it does, you saved some money by not switching to a new video card, so you should be able to afford something even better by the time 6GB VRAM is no longer enough.

Okay thank you so much for your help! smile.gif

But concerning to the V-Ram....I saw some videos like "Tomb Raider" in Full HD,that needed >6GB of V-Ram. And I think the amount of the games which need 5-6GB and more V-Ram will increase in the upcoming 2-3 years.

But I think that there is a difference between "nice to have more V-Ram" and "need more V-Ram".

Perhaps Tomb Raider in Full HD could be such a game. In this video a new RX480 was used which has 8GB of memory. And you could see that Tomb Raider used 6,xx GB of the V-Ram.

So the question is,did this game use more V-Ram than normal because its already there or did it really need that much of V-Ram.

I hope my english is good enough to explain you what I mean biggrin.gif

I know exactly what you mean.

For DX12, it has been proven that 4GB is not enough VRAM for Tomb Raider (the Fury, Nano, and Fury X choke on this game because of their 4GB VRAM), but I'm fairly certain that 6GB is more than enough. Many games today pre-load assets into VRAM for future use if it's available. It cuts down on load times later in the game.

Here is one instance where 4GB VRAM is a hindrance to max performance (GTA V). Notice how the 980 Ti (in SLI) does not suffer from this issue.

The other thing to consider is Nvidia always abandons driver optimizations for their older cards to encourage people to buy new cards. Remember the 960 actually beat out the 780 Ti in a number of games due to poor driver support. Is the Palit Gamerock a good overclocker and clocked high already? You could just get a better 1070 card or save up more money until the 1080 Ti comes out, although that card could run $1000 ;p.

Been said that Pascal is pretty much just a shrunken Maxwell chip, same thing really. So when Nvidia optimizes Pascal, Maxwell gets the boost/fixes too. Could be true, not sure.

As for the gpu to choose, I'd go for the 1070 over the 980 TI.
