Asus matrix platinum 980ti xoc or 1070ti?

Hey guys I've been put In a situation I wasn't planning on being in.

Unfortunately my STRIX 980ti died whilst servicing my Waterloop.

I have found an Asus matrix platinum near to me that I can buy for the same price as a local 1070ti.

If I got for the matrix im 99% sure I can modify my ek water block to fit and would probably get some nice clocks over my previous card 🤔

Plus I can then plumb it back in and my loop is unchanged.


If i go with the 1070ti I won't be able to resist buying a block for it (don't really mind as I'd sell my 980ti block).

I know the 1070ti is "better" but by a very small amount id imagine compared to a matrix 980ti under water with all those voltage sliders etc. How does a 1070ti generally perform under water?

So what's your thoughts, anyone with some experience with these cards?

Would I get more milage out of the matrix under water than a fairly reference 1070ti? If they weren't the same price of have made the decision already! 😂👍

Currently I don't need any more power than these cards as I only use 1080p.

Many thanks for your time!

1070Ti also has the advantage of more memory at a faster speed. I've only found two games that regularly use more VRAM than my 980Ti had (Dishonored 2 and Deus Ex: MK).

Don't know much about how they OC but the 1070Ti will do much better at higher resolutions. I had a 1070 before I got the 1080Ti and it does most games at high/medium in 4K perfectly fine. Doubt the 980ti would hold up with that. Also probably safe to assume that the 1070ti is going to last longer since it's newer.

980TI is still great (esp OC'd). However, I would probably go for the 1070ti if same price. You get an extra couple of years of warranty (hopefully!), if not the card itself is newer.

At 1550core/8400mem, the 980ti is really close to a 1080 (I'm ~5% slower than a stock 1080 in benchmarks on my 980ti [those are my clocks on air, watercooling doesn't get me any higher]), however it consumes a TON of power (granted, I have mine at 1.281v). The 1070ti should OC a bit further, run cooler, and consume less power. You should read up on the matrix's voltage. IIRC, the Strix was rather locked down, not sure how much the PCBs differ.

What makes the 980ti look bad in recent reviews are the relatively low clock speeds (granted, not all hit >1450mhz, they should all hit a decent bit more than the stock boost clock of ~1200mhz).

I thought Pascal all kind of topped out at 2050-2100 regardless of cooling?

What percentage of 980Ti's will hit 1550? 1%? Mine couldn't get anywhere near 1550.

Why don't you sell the waterblock and just buy a GTX 1080 TI? You don't have to watercool it. Mine runs pretty cool at 2070 Mhz.

Wouldn't the 1080 TI be ~double the price of the 1070Ti? But I do agree, they run pretty cool (at least all of the non-FE 10 series cards I've had [a lot] ran pretty cool with decent airflow). I would consider forgoing the block and getting the best card you can afford [and then try to get a block later down the line if you really need it [and if you can't find one, universal blocks really aren't that bad; even if they look a lot uglier]).

Sounds about right, though some get pretty close.

Even at less than that, the card gets a huge bump in performance: https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/...Gaming/19.html
Not sure what the stock boost clock on the ref 980ti is, but even a ~1400mhz core was much better (that seems to be around what the 980ti G1 Xtreme's boost is).
