Sell my 1070 for a 1080? Or wait for 1080ti? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 
I hear what all of you are saying.


The Titan XP suggestion is a solid one, though I'm not sure if I'm at the point yet where i'd drop that much for a card. Epic future proofing or not. My thought is that if I had a single 1080 right now instead of a single 1070, whenever or IF the 1080ti comes out, I might be more inclined to snag another 1080 to make up the difference. It's a tough situation in my opinion. I hate that Nvidia gets away with charging so much.

The saddest part is that the price for the Titan XP won't ever go down, I'd just have to man up.

I honestly don't plan to get to 4k anytime soon. It was a little insulting to hear my resolution being called "relatively low" lol sorry for the lack of e-peen. Down the road i'd like to snag the same resolution monitor, just at a higher freq.

I really enjoy ultrawide, and can't imagine a reason to get a 4k. I had forgot that on the BF1 beta, I have the scaling up to 200%. So I could probably take down that a bit haha.

Another reason I'd want to get a 1080 is that Zotac made an Amp Extreme watercooled. They're calling it the Arctic Storm. It's the same pcb, so it'd be nice to get a card that doesn't get my OC throttled at 55c. I can't take the noise of an air-cooled card anymore. It drives me nuts. It's the first aircooled card I've had for YEARS. (4 7970s watercooled prior)


I am of course tempted to snag a second 1070 and have that be that but at the point I am with wanting to watercool them...it'd be a bit of scratch to get both cards and have em watercooled.

I'm with you on the noise thing. Just swapped from a WC'ed Nano to the 1070 FE, and I hate that it gets so damned noisy the moment I use anything but the stock fan curve, though I can't bring myself to shell out for the waterblock, even though I have all the other watercooling bits just sitting here doing nothing...the darn reference cooler and backplate just look so pretty through the side window...even if they kinda suck.

First off, my apologies on inadvertently (and unintentionally) insulting your resolution. What I should have said was "easier to drive" rather than "relatively low." After all, you're not running 1080p or 1440p. Now THOSE are low resolutions nowadays. tongue.gif

Regardless of what you do now, I would still have to strongly recommend against going dual-card unless you can avoid it. It's almost always a better idea to sell your current card and then upgrade to the best single card you can buy with your budget, unless you already have a single top-end card and need more performance. That's the only time I think SLI / Crossfire actually makes sense nowadays.

I also have had SLI or Crossfire for ages... 2x Voodoo2 12 MB SLI, 2x GTX 460, 2x GTX 570, 2x GTX 670, 2x Radeon 7970, 2x Radeon 290x, 2x GTX 980Ti... with most of those watercooled. I just think now is the time to consolidate into single GPU solutions. As deferred rendering engines (e.g. Unreal) and hybrid deferred/immediate mode engines (e.g. Id Tech 6) become more popular, we're far less likely to see native support for multi-GPU. Yes, I'm aware about the hack for Doom, but even on my 40-lane CPU running my old 2x980ti at x16/x16, there are issues with scaling in places. Also, during this transition between driver-supported multi-GPU in DX11/OpenGL and Explicit Multi-Adapter in DX12, there are bound to be quite a few titles that end up without multi-GPU support at all--or quite late if it does indeed come (e.g. Tomb Raider 2016 DX12 in EMA mode).

The best of luck with your decision, though. It's always hard when the temptation is there. I learned the hard (i.e. $1500) way with my TXP + watercooling.

Hey now, I love my 1080p 144hz display!...though 1080p 60hz, might as well be living under a rock tongue.gif

More importantly, if OP is absolutely intent on upgrading, I absolutely agree with avoiding a dual card solution, especially for gaming. It never sees enough developer support to justify the costs, and it's just begging for headaches! I learned my lesson 4 years ago with dual HD 7950s, huge pain in the rear!

Not to mention, 2x 1070s is gonna cost between $800 and $900, maybe more with taxes and shipping and the like, at that point, if you are really gonna go that hard, what's the extra $300 for a Titan XP? Not to mention people stare with more awe at a Titan than they do at two of a lesser card, regardless of which setup has more hypothetical power, so if e-peen is what you're after(which let's face it, is more of us then we'd like to admit) I'd say just say eff it and get a Titan!

Though my preferred advice still remains stick with the 1070 until something more interesting launches thumb.gif
