GTX 1070 Ti vs R9 295X2 with i7-7700K vs i7-4770K at 1080p and ultra vs ultra settings

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti / i7-7700K

It is clear that the GTX 1070 Ti is a significantly more capable high-end card that can play AAA titles at 1080p/1440p with 50-60 frames per second. In terms of memory, the GTX 1070 Ti 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. In short the performance is exceptional, there's no question that this is one of the most powerful single GPU out there in 2017 .

AMD Radeon R9 295X2 / i7-4770K

In terms of cost, pricing clearly is a genuine issue here and the price of R9 295X2 is simply ridiculous. For those on 1080p or even 1440p monitors, the R9 295X2 is very expensive and there are better value choices in the short term. It is worth noting that the R9 295X2 is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. This combination between R9 295X2 and Intel Core i7-4770K @ 3.50GHz has less than 8% bottleneck in many games and is perfect match to avoid FPS loss. In short the performance is exceptional, there's no question that this is one of the most powerful single GPU out there in 2014 . This combination between R9 295X2 and Intel Core i7-4770K @ 3.50GHz is a perfect match to avoid FPS loss. With current 4096 MB RAM, the R9 295X2 can have very few memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games.
