would a 1080ti be overkill?

Recommended Posts

I'm currently running a  i5 4690k @ 4.2Ghz. my current card is a GTX970. I'm tempted to get a 1080ti when they become available, but would my i5 be a bottleneck in regards to flying P3dv3?

Can't answer the question unless we know what resolution you run and whether or not you run additional anti-aliasing, in particular super sampling (AKA SSAA).

I have seen benchmarks were the 1060 in mid res holds it own against the 1080ti so unless you are intending to use a large 4k panel it may be overkill.

Yes, for gpu horsepower that is overkill for 32 bit p3d.

XP11 would probably fully leverage it, but I'd be amazed if the current p3d used even half it's power.

If you plan to use 4K HDR with 4 x SGSS...you probably need this graphic power or even more.
Without HDR and 4K - where there is also no need for SGSS since shimmering is much lower - a GTX 1070 is more than sufficient.

Almost a month later and the OP hasn't posted back, I don't think this particular thread is going anywhere...
