Gtx 1070 to 2080

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

It’s been a few months since the new cards came out, and I was wondering if there’s enough information out there to confirm (or not) that a switch from a 1070 to a 2080 is a worthy upgrade for P3D. Other specs are in my signature.

I’m fairly happy with how it’s running now, but would like to push the GPU intensive settings further to the right. Same with using higher def clouds etc..

Thanks

Hopping onto this question as well... I'm using a 1060 for the moment and getting ready to upgrade.  I get the sense the 1080TI may still be the best value solution since Prepar3D and X-Plane are not yet making use of ray tracing.  Looking forward to seeing other's opinions on Richard's question.

The 1070 and even 1060 with 6GB of RAM are more than adequate for the suggested task.

Sticking to the question, that task is running P3D, not X Plane 11 or any other simulators or games.

The best value for money is the 1070Ti.

If you have a 1080p screen, the 1080/RTX 2070 should be more than enough for anything P3D can throw at them. At 1440p/4k you'll want to look into the RTX 2080, if not the 2080ti.

 

I think finding Pascal cards is getting quite hard now, amazon's stock of 1080tis is quite low.

I forgot to mention my monitor is 1440.

If you don’t mind parting with your hard earned money then a RTX2080ti Strix OC will certainly give you a performance boost. Boost vs money spent is always a challenge for the end user to figure out. But that said I went from a TitanXP to the said card (above) and noticed a nice boost especially in VR. Mainly in clouds and 3rd party airports. The TitanXP was an awesome card but I could feel it working hard in VR whereas the 2080 seems to be eating everything I throw at it. 

It’s a nice solid card and for me it was worth the dollars but that’s for you to decide. It’s hard to state a fps percentage gain (if any) but I’ve noticed I can hold fps more in those tough graphic demanding areas.

The 2070 and 2080 are plenty in that case, you do not need the 2080ti for 1440p, it's really meant for 4K or 1440p ultrawide.

I personally have a 2080 and a 4k monitor and the sim runs like a dream, I think there's no reason to go for the ti in your case.

I think I definitely agree with the 2080, non ti version.

Thanks

I guess the question is, is the extra 3GB of VRAM that the 1080ti has over the 2080 non ti a big advantage. Where I am, 2080s are cheaper and easier to find it seems.

When I was trying to choose a graphics card for my new system I did briefly consider the 2080 as it would have Ray Tracing capability even though P3D couldn't currently take advantage of it.

I was advised the extra 3Gb of memory in the 1080 Ti was more important than ray tracing as it might be a long time before it comes into P3D.

Having been able to test my 1080Ti in P3D at 3840*2160 I can tell you that at 60Hz the GPU load is around 70% but swapping to 30Hz reduces that down to 30-35%. CPU 0 usage rarely hit 100% at 30Hz either.

A 2080 with an i7-6700K could be overkill if you only plan on running at 2560*1440. That's 30% more than 1920*1080. I would have thought a 1080 or maybe 1080Ti would be fine.

Thanks for this info Ray. I guess it's going to be between a 1080ti and 2080 no ti. Depending which is the better deal.

Richard,

I should also have asked if your monitor supports 30Hz. That will take the pressure off the system trying to maintain 60 assuming that's your monitor refresh rate. Make sure too you enable VSync and try the triple buffer option. That removed all the flashing I was getting.

1080Ti cards are becoming rare. Good luck.

I have tried at 30Hz, but I’m having a hard time getting used to it. It seems incredibly slow. For the most part, I maintain close to 60fps everywhere, with moderate to high settings. I use no traffic whatsoever.

my monitor is a Dell 34 ultra wide

I'm guessing you didn't fly 25 years ago when a friend with a new Pentium chip achieved 8fps in FS whatever it was and I was jealous. :wink:

You might get 60 when airborne but not even my system with no Ai can achieve 60 on the ground unless I reduce scenery settings to really low levels.

Remember, fluidity is better than high fps. Even at 15fps that is enough to successfully land Concorde with small adjustments required.
