Hello, now that I've got my new i7 7700k up and running, I'm starting to contemplate a GPU upgrade. I have a GTX770, and while my overall fps are good, when I get into clouds etc my fps do drop. I've done the check shrinking my screen size and my fps go up. I checked gpu utilization and it's at 100% when flying through clouds. My display is 1440p in p3dv3. All this leads me to believe I'm GPU limited now, so I'm contemplating an upgrade to a GTX1070.

Has anyone made a similar upgrade? Comments, thoughts? I've read a few things on this forum about the gtx1070 being overkill for P3D...any other options out there?

Thanks

I updated from a GTX670 to a 1070 and it helped a lot with stable FPS in P3Dv3 and in X-Plane.
The frame rate literally exploded in X-Plane 10, especially with high resolution photo scenery.
In P3D, the average frame rate didn't increase that dramatically, but the overall smoothness went up very noticeably. And the drops to middle teens are completely gone.
And the 99% GPU load (more or less the whole time) with the 670 went down to 30-60% with the 1070.
That is with an overclocked i5 3570@4.3 GHz.

I have the same experience as Michael. Upgraded from a 670 to 1070, noticed a huge improvement in FPS in X-Plane, and a decent improvement in FSX (but probably about 10fps more than I was getting and smoother overall). I don't regret it.

Same here. Upgraded from GTX780 to GTX1070. Since the upgrade, my fps in P3D are much more stable and the sim is more fluid (because of the more stable fps). In cloudy conditions fps are much higher in general. In X-Plane it has also given me a significant improvement in fps.

I, too, am debating making the jump from a GTX 780 to a 1070 or 1080 during an upgrade I'm planning.

I bought this one after using a 770GTX: https://www.newegg.c...N82E16814487265

 

Dramatic positive difference in both P3D and XP10/11. I love it.
