1070 or 1080 for a 4k set up

Recommended Posts

I upgraded to a 4k moniter (not tv) over christmas time. I really like it....when theres very very little clouds in P3d. I am currently on a GTX970 and it handles 4k really well. However, once weather hits, FPS plummet. That being said, I am going to upgrade my GPU. I just dont know if shelling out an extra 225 bucks for the 1080 is worth it.

 

Can any of you guys guide me to which one will do a better job in 4k with dense cloud situations? Or are they too close performance wise and not worth shelling out the extra cash for the 1080?

 

Thanks!

I can't speak to a 1070 but I have a ASUS 1080 with an ASUS 4K monitor with a i7-6700K at 4.6ghz and overcast with rain or clear skies, it sits at 30FPS locked with PMDG 777 Fly Tampa Sydney.

 

I use legacy FSX (Deluxe Boxed) with DX10SF on Windows 10.

 

Cheers,

i have a 2700k OCED to 4.8. Do you think that would bottleneck the 1080?

I honestly don't know, my computer was built for me by a specialist technician who runs his own computer build business where I live.

 

He is a big simmer himself and he told me what I needed for what i run and how I use both FSX and X Plane. And he was spot on; I picked this machine up in July and I have not looked back.

 

All I can tell you is that 4K/i7-6700K/GTX1080/Win10 combination works.
