NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti / Core 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 . amzn_assoc_placement = "adunit0"; amzn_assoc_search_bar = "false"; amzn_assoc_tracking_id = "alexdwilsons-20"; amzn_assoc_ad_mode = "search"; amzn_assoc_ad_type = "smart"; amzn_assoc_marketplace = "amazon"; amzn_assoc_region = "US"; amzn_assoc_title = "Best NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Offers"; amzn_assoc_default_search_phrase = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti"; amzn_assoc_default_category = "Electronics"; amzn_assoc_linkid = "315127406b2046a2d339d6502b652881"; amzn_assoc_design = "in_content"; amzn_assoc_default_browse_node = "172282";

AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 / Core i7-7700K

It is clear that the RX VEGA 56 is a significantly more capable high-end card that can play AAA titles at 1080p/1440p with 50-60 frames per second. It is worth noting that the RX VEGA 56 is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. In terms of memory, the RX VEGA 56 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks.
