GTX1080ti or RTX2070

Hello,

I am currently running a GTX 1070. But i am thinking to switch this card after 2 years. But now my question. What is better to go with, the GTX1080ti or a RTX2070?
RTX2070 (new) is around €600 and €700 and the 1080ti (used) is around €500 and €600.

What would be better?

specs:
i7-7700k
Asus Maximus IX Formula
16gb GEIL ram
Asus Strix GTX1070 8b gaming
Seasonic gold 750Watt

Regards.

Depends on what you want to do.

Do you want to use RTX/DLSS and have a full warranty? Get an RTX 2070
If you want to push frames and don't care about warranty, get the GTX 1080ti.

If you’re just looking for higher performance currently, GTX1080Ti...if you want newer features and performance close to the 1080Ti, then the RTX2070.

I currently run a 7700K on a GTX1080Ti, but I’ll be switching it to a RTX2080 soon after testing it out some more from my test rig. I also have the GTX1070 and the GTX1080Ti is definitely a jump in performance.

I'd rather get the new card with a full warranty, or wait a month to see Navi and possibly get a better deal. My 1080ti died shorty after its 2 yr warranty, so you are playing with fire buying used. That is the gamble.

Depends where you are and if you can even get a 1080Ti close to those prices, let alone how long will it still run? Many pascal cards were mined on and abused, are quite old now with their life often coming to an end if used a lot. Sure the silicon may be fine, but the endless heat cycling, fan spining etc. puts stress on other components, solder joints, fans, ...

1080Ti is a better performing card but not always.

A new 2070 is around 500-550 EUR with VAT.
Used 1080Ti, depends where and if you can even find and get one, some regions they go around 500 no? But other like mine people are nuts, cards rare and want near new card prices at end of life of the card, nuts, low supply for a rare card.

my screen is 60hz ultrawide 2560x1080, so pushing frames is not optimal for this i think.

I can wait tbh. I want to sell my GTX1070 before buying a new one. I never buy 2nd hand stuff for pc. But they don't offer the 1080ti new in stores anymore. Everything is RTX nowadays.

I am in the Netherlands. The "Dutch Ebay" look alike site, they sell them for €550. https://www.marktplaats.nl/a/compute...reviousPage=lr

Get a new screen before either. 60hz will hamstring any benefit either card offers.

I would keep the 1070 until AMD releases their cards and Nvidia (hopefully) drops prices.

But if you are committed, the 1080 Ti has more raw graphics power. Sure the RTX has the RT cores but its the first generation of this technology and I generally wait for the 2nd or 3rd so it can mature and I would want to make sure the technology isn't a fad that doesnt last (like PhysX).

Asus Prime Z370, Intel 8700k @5.0Ghz, Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti, 16GB @3400 CL14, Watercooling: x2 MCP355 pumps, x1 280 on front of case, x1 360 on top of case, x1 140 on back of case, x1 240 on bottom of case

Then you're probable in luck and can grab a 2nd hand one. Gotta be in a wealthy region where people will sell their 1080Ti after buying 2080Ti, only rich people are gonna do that.

If you don't want the advances from Turing then get a 1080Ti, no question about that.

used 1080ti all day long. You can find em for $500 and lower now, in the states at least.

I personally tested 2080 Vs. 1080ti, n 1080ti was near identical *(yes yes, 2080 will get a little faster due to drivers, over time, but not enough to make it worth 2x the price of a used 1080ti)

so compare that to a 2070, a card that's 2 steps slower, n one year newer, and about the same price as a used 1080ti that still has warranty.

If you're not aware of how NV does it.

1080ti = 2080
1080 = 2070
etc etc

( not literally, but in performance)

also remember that stepping down to slower memory bus means a crappier experience at higher resolutions.

Ray Tracing, in its current level of deployment, is too premature to be worth a damn. It's a trigger feature atm, put on the box as another * to convince you its BETTER and has more VALUE. Those little dots are there to brainwash you into thinking "lulz, amd sux, dedicated raytracing cores 4lyf" and "lulz, why would you buy used? this thing support quadruple floating point malicious SQL string injections, whereas 1080ti only supports to the mun"
