What Would You Upgrade?

Recommended Posts

re 1070ti vs 1070, they are very similar but differ in the following: it has 500+ more CUDA cores and has been demonstrated to shown an additional 10-15% performance improvement over the std GTX1070. Of course it's more expensive... $$$.

I also did read it will do a better job of running 4K which your monitor has.

Think it's worth to go to a 1080 or 1080 TI with my 4K set up?

Hello All!

Here is my current setup for P3Dv4.1 If you had a budget of ~$400, what would you upgrade? CPU, GPU?

Thanks and happy holidays!

You don't mention memory so I'll guess your at, at least, 16 gig in a dual channel configuration.

IMHO (bearing in mind I have no experience with the 1080) is the jump from a 1070ti to a 1080 is a larger performance jump than 1070 to a TI version as you have more cores and your onboard memory is faster.

If you have the extra budget for a 1080 or 1080Ti I would go for it. The 1080TI has a good reputation for running 4K really well.

 

Note: The only thing I would check if you decide to bite the bullet and really move up to a 1080 is check your existing motherboard has the appropriate power cables for that GPU and your Power Supply has sufficient power to run it.

Going from a 1070Ti to a 1080 would not be worth the extra $$. Going to a 1080Ti wouyld justify the $$, IMHO.

What cooler do you have? I'd have thought you could get more out of your 4770K.

But definitely go for a GPU.

I OC to 4.4ghz already.

Your first post states 4.2. 4.4 is not too bad. Definitely get a new GPU (I'd say GTX 1070 minimum, as others have said).

GPU for sure, 1070's are most likely best bet for $400 budget. I ran one for quite some time at 4K, P3DV4. The new cards are going to be extremely high priced, from what I've seen.

How was performence with the 1070?

With one screen @ 4K it was 'excellent' with moderate settings (obviously lots of subjectivity here). I upgraded because I needed more GPU power to run two side screens.

Just ordered the 1080 TI on Amazon! Should be here on March 14th. Really looking forward to it!

At first, I too was considering the GeForce 1070.  But I got the 1080 just before Xmas at $539 (Xmas pricing?), so I thought the price made it more easy to swallow going from 1070 to a 1080.  Hey and I'm still running an i7-2600k at 4.8GHz.  That ol' little sucker keeps chugging along.  :laugh:

Im still 0n the i5 2500k OC to 4.6 ghz and its still after 7 years puching holes through FSX-SE lol
