post #2441 of 10420
Just wondering would you prefer 4K 60hz or 1440 100hz, and lastly with the option for 3840x1600 (though so far freesync only frown.gif at 75 Hz would that be the best of both world

I need some advice because I'm going crazy.
Did a few quick runs with +150/+500 120% on the 1080 Ti and I am still confused with my results to say the least.

i have an i7 3770k at 4.6ghz with titan x maxwell in sli and a 4k oled tv.
does it worth upgrading both my cpu and gpus or it's a waste of money to upgrade my cpu and motherboard etc as at 4k the cpu matters little.
I'm thinking to go 1080ti sli.

Here is another comparison from the Extreme benchmark

I've only tested a few games but I'm so confused. Battlefield 1 with the SLI setup would run a constant 120fps and the 1080 Ti is at 130-145fps with the same settings. Even vram used is similar, before the SLI was at 2.8-3.2gb and the 1080 Ti is at 3.8gb.

Am I expecting too much? The 10-24% increase on graphics test feels like it would of been appropriate for the Maxwell Titan. If I can remember correct, the 980Ti was ~10% over the 780Ti, so why the low numbers a generation after that?

I really want to test this card to it's best potential so that means I need a waterblock and shunt mod to bypass power limits. I was going to wait for AIB boards with better components and power delivery, the more I read I see that Pascal just does not keep scaling with extra voltage and power draw. Also did not want to wait on custom waterblocks so I bought the FE. It's been a while since I upgrade because the SLI setup has practically destroyed anything with SLI support. Plenty of times I read forums and review sites. Vram has never been an issue for me on 2k and 4k and FPS was high enough to drive high refresh rate monitors. I'm not sure what to do besides ask other owners on how they feel because I'm 50% ready to box this card up and return it thinking.gif

lol you're right. Im gonna hold out as long as i can. Would really like to see a curved 3440x1440 144Hz at some point. Id probably take that over a 4k, very taxing hobby. thinking.gif

Buy a 2nd 1080 Ti... problem solved.

At least you aren't like me... I have a 1070 I'm using to drive a QNIX 1440p 120hz display. Ordered a 1080 Ti thinking I could drive it with the adapter I have... nope. Now I'm waiting for a DL-DVI to DP adapter, a new monitor, or an aftermarket 1080 Ti...

indeed it is. it would be wise to wait a bit as some serious upgrades coming this year in monitor tech.

The 3770k is chugging along just fine, especially at 4k. Unless you want new tech, i dont see the need to upgrade your cpu/board at the present time.

I don't know what the comparative performance of these cards should be but from what you've said we could possibly conclude that your results are about as expected.

If 980 Ti = 780 Ti +10%

we could suppose that 980 Ti SLI = 780 Ti SLI + 10%

We know that that the 1080 Ti is roughly equivalent to 980 Ti SLI so we can then say

1080 Ti = 780 Ti SLI +10%

Which would be about in line with what you're seeing.

This could all be a steaming pile in the real world so I'm happy to be corrected thumb.gif

It's all about available bandwidth. HDMI 2.0 and Displayport 1.2 have roughly the same bandwidth. 4K 60hz is the limit, with 3440 x 1440, 100hz is the limit, with 3840 x 1600, 75 hz is the limit. From there you may add HDR and stuff, but you can't squeeze much more than that.

3440 x 1440 at 144 hz would likely require displayport 1.4 or HDMI 2.1, with HDMI 2.1 being a massive increase in bandwidth. Adoption of it will mean fast rise is monitor tech. Keep in mind the current geforce 1080ti doesn't support it, and Vega will likely not as well. So, for the forseable future, the choices will be one of those three resolutions, OR do what is already done and that is reduce resolution in order to increase the refresh rate on some of these other gaming monitors. The 2nd option is to do like they do in 5K monitors and that is allow the stitching of imagings into one screen by allowing you to plug in two HDMI or displayport to one screen in order to increase the bandwidth.
