NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti / Core i7-7700K @ 4.20GHz

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 .

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 / Core i7-6700K @ 4.00GHz

With some tuning, the GTX 1080 makes the most sense for gamers with 4K monitors. Though serious gamers hardly play at 4k. In terms of memory, the GTX 1080 '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 2016 .

It's larger than that.

Depends on who did the review and what GTX 1080 they compared against... MOST are using reference GTX 1080 cards... The Partner cards are MUCH faster.

Do i need to uninstall my drivers or does the 1080 ti run the same drivers as the 1070? i looked on the website and they looked the same.

you have to uninstall/reinstall the driver. it would cause issues as drivers target specific hardware SKUs. did the same thing with my gtx960 -> gtx1060. and it's easy, too.

1070 TI over 1080 Definitely, As all of Nvidia x80 series cards have always lead to be the one of the worst choices for gamers due to the fact that You get very similar performance for a cheaper price in the 1070 TI, and if you want performance better than a 1080, you just go for a 1080 TI.

It was same situation in the 900 series where a majority of the people bought a GTX 970 or a GTX 980 TI, leaving those that purchased a GTX 980 feeling quite hosed off and also feeling like their money was poured down the sewage drains.

1070 TI over 1080 to prevent any emotional antsy feelings from occurring.

Hi. Should i get a Gtx 1070 ti when it come out or a gtx 1080. 1070 ti Cheaper and newer so i want it but 1080 is very good too so what should i get?

grabbanked 1 month ago
well newer=better doesn't really apply here. Judging by the unconfirmed reports it's the same GPU (GP104) it's built on the same fab, identical chip size and power requirements. The 1070ti appears to be just a cut down 1080, with more CUDA cores and higher clocks than the regular 1070.

The 1080 will still perform better. End of.

(the msi costs 50 euros more)

Can someone clarify why palit is so cheap compared with other brands?

stressvanquish 2 months ago


listen if money is no object get the msi, but if you wanna get a (afaik) inferior card get the palit. if anyone else responds or has a opinion here then wait for others to respond with their suggestion.

id just hate for you to drop cash on the palit and then hear you have problems. ive heard of zero problems with the msi gpu's. but when guys DO have problems msi has sent them new cards.

Up to about a month ago I would have recommended buying a 1070 Ti over a 1080 because the 1080 was still way overpriced from miner demand. For whatever reason, the 1070 Ti pretty much stayed under the radar of the miners. However, graphics card prices in general are falling and starting to return back to normal (at least on Nvidia's side).

I'm not sure what nation you live in, but in North America (US and Canada), the 1070 Ti is now only about 10% less expensive than a 1080. Case in point, EVGA's FTW2 variants. And if you shop around, you may find that a rebate offer on a 1080 even cuts that price margin difference even less:

EVGA 1070 Ti FTW2 for - 9.99 or 9.99 after .00 rebate
https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1369702-REG/evga_08g_p4_6775_kr_geforce_gtx_1070_ti.html

EVGA 1080 FTW2 - 9.99 or 9.99 after .00 rebate
https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1322718-REG/evga_08g_p4_6686_kr_geforce_gtx_1080_ftw2.html

An aftermarket 1070 Ti like this is about 97% of the performance as a reference (stock) 1080. However, an aftermarket 1080 leaps ahead again by a larger margin. Whether or not those extra 5-10 FPS means something to you for the increased cost is up to you. I will say this though: the GTX 1080 has higher minimum frame rates than the 1070 Ti. Something critical in gaming if you are barely above 60FPS on average at say 4K resolution. I assume your 144Hz monitor is 1080p in resolution, so in your application, you likely won't notice the difference between the two GPUs much.

I think miners are holding out for Nvidia's GTX 11xx series Volta which will be coming out starting with the GTX 1180 in July. I would wait if I were you vs. buying either card right now. Rumors are that they will be a lot more powerful and use less power than Pascal. Pricing and availability however is another story when they are released.

Hello. I'm planning to upgrade from my GTX 1050 Ti to a 1060 6GB. But then i found online a bunch of used 1070 Ti for almost the same price as retail 1060. Should i upgrade to a 1070 Ti? Is it overkill for 1080p 60Hz?

1070ti for 1080p 60Hz.
It is an overkill for now but it is not a bad pick if you want a bit of a future proofing.
If the price of an 1070ti is almost the same as 1060 6GB, I would grab 1070ti without even asking.

1070 is fine for your needs......however at current mining craze inflated prices the 1070 is only -60 cheaper than the 1080; thus if you are going to buy today at those inflated prices then you might as well get the 1080.

Getting a 1070ti is the smarter choice in this scenario, performance degradation is present in the 1080 mini card that you want the 1070ti actually has a good amount of overclocking room but at the end of the day it is up to you .

Hi guys, i have a Gigabyte GTX 1080 Windforce OC, i wanted downgrade to ROG STRIX GTX 1070 ti, if i downgrade will i dissapointed very much?
I don't do hard gaming, i enjoy on 1440p, not so care about fps but demand 60fps+.
**I really wanted a strix card, they look gorgeous

grublunchbox 2 months ago
The ROG strix gtx 1070 ti can get quite close to the performance of your gtx 1080 when overclocked but it will still be a noticeable downgrade. It certainly won't be able to achieve 1440p 60fps at ultra settings in all games.

Whether you will be disappointed or not will depend on whether you'll spend more time looking at that "gorgeous card" or whether you're actually going to game on it.

For 1440p 144Hz, get a GTX 1080. It will get around 90fps in most games and if you have G-Sync on that monitor then you are set. Overclocking it will further increase the framerate.

If you decide to go 1440p 60Hz, then a 1070Ti is good.

How future proof is a GTX 1070 Ti at 1080p Max settings? Would I be able to get max setting for least 2-4 years and then another one or two in high or so? I’m pairing this Up with a i5 8400 and 2666Mhz 16 GB ram. Trying to get the best for my buck. Thank you! I know down the line CPU will need to be upgraded.

yardgone 2 months ago
The 1000 series GPUs are already 2 years old.
I highly doubt you will get max settings in 4 years from now.
That's a total of 6 years since the GPU launched.

1 or 2 years on max settings maybe yes. It all depends on the game really.
Used to have a GTX 770 (launched in 2013) and it couldn't run Crysis 3 at 60FPS on max settings.
Neither could it run Wolfenstein The New Order on max settings.
Both are games from 2013-2014.

The best for your buck would be to wait for the new Nvidia GPUs.

I will be upgrading from my 4690k to a Coffee Lake i7/i5 once it gets released. I'm also looking into adding another 1070, or sell my current 1070 and get a 1080 Ti Sadly, my monitor is only 1080p @60hz. I dont have extra cash to buy a better monitor. If ever I SLI 1070s or buy the 1080 Ti, should I just use DSR so it wont be overkill?

GTX 1080Ti...one GTX 1080Ti is as powerful as 2 GTX 1070s when SLI is supported. When SLI isn't supported things get worse for the GTX 1070s. Just sell your GTX 1070 and get the GTX 1080Ti and don't look back. Though it may be worth waiting till next year as volta is launching soon.

Greetings everyone, I'm having trouble knowing which GPU would be best suited for me and need help deciding.

My goal is to play online based shooters like Overwatch, Fortnite etc on an average of 240 FPS (with low graphic settings if needed) Planning to get a 240 hz monitor soon.
I game on 1080p monitor and my cpu is intel i7 7000k.

Nvidia's current GPUs are nearly 2 years old at this point. The GTX 1080 came out in May of 2016, and while the 1070 Ti and 1080 Ti are both somewhat newer, they're all based on the same basic architecture. The same goes for AMD's low to mid-range cards, which are currently just refreshes of what they launched in mid-2016. I would expect both Nvidia and AMD to launch new cards this year, and probably by summer, if cryptocurrency mining doesn't mess with their schedule in some way. As for mining, it's pretty much doubled GPU prices from what they should be, so it's not exactly a great time to be buying graphics cards.

Best to go with the GTX 1080.

The GTX 1070Ti will never match a GTX 1080, and you have to OC it to the moon, both GPU and Memory to even get close.

And that's with the GTX 1080 at stock speed, you can OC them also.

THat's if you are buying now, if you can wait a month or more the RTX cards will be out and benchmarks will be out to see how they perform.

hi
we all know that PCIe slot provides a maximum of 75w, speaking of the Gtx 1070ti or 1080ti which both can draw more than 250w to 300w, how does this power delivery work?
doest it always take the max 75w from the PCIe and get the rest from the 6-8pin connector ? or just pull everything from the PSU?
if yes, isnt it dangerous to draw the max power from the PCIe slot all the time for more than 3 years ?

Hey guys,

i can't decide. Should i buy the gtx 1070 ti or 1080, or should i wait for the new 11xx series to come out?

I know that gtx 1080 ti would be the best choice but i don't have that much of money to buy it.

I can get: 1. EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti SC GAMING ACX 3.0 for about 413,00€
OR
2. EVGA nVidia GF GTX1080 SC Gaming ACX 3.0 for about 452€

My current graphics card: gtx 770

Thank you guys for your advice and help.

Since you’re staying there wouldn’t go higher than a 1070 and would skip the next gen completely.

I've saved a bit of money to upgrade my graphics card but I cannot decide on which one to buy.

I'm gaming with a 1080p 144hz monitor with a GTX 970.

I was leaning towards buying a GTX 1070 but I've just seen that the 980 TI has had it's price slashed drastically, and is around £30-50 cheaper than the 1070.

Although that amount of money isn't an issue, would i see such a drastic increase in performance if any if i choose to go with the 1070 over the 980 TI?

Furthermore, which is also a better future investment?

Thanks!

The 1070 without a doubt. While there might not be a very large performance difference today, older Nvidia cards underperform in DX12. This has been fixed in the new architecture. So, as DX12 games come out, the performance difference will increase significantly.
Plus teh new card draws less power and that means less heat and noise.

Hey guys!

I'm about to order a new gaming desktop and can't decide between the two options which are priced exactly the same. My objective is to play modern games at 1440p on a 144hz G-sync monitor. I'm not planning to stream, but it could be an option at some point.

The first system has 7700K + GTX 1080
The second one has 8700K + GTX 1070Ti

My gut feeling is to go with the latest gen CPU and a decent 1070 Ti, but what confuses me is that in gaming tests 8700K and 7700K perform nearly the same, while 1080 always beats 1070Ti by a good margin.

There's also a system with 8700 (non K) with 1080, but it lacks SSD which I might buy later on, but it ships from another county and i'm not sure if it's worth the hassle.

it's not only about CPU and GPU chips. there are many important aspects.
the fact that you don't "see" the difference is not important. even i3 might give you reasonable avg FPS in many games - that not makes it good gaming CPU. it will have stutters, freezes and other unpleasant problems. just as example, watch dogs 2 can utilize up to 16 threads - 7700K have only half of that.
the list of games that can properly utilize many threads are as old as Crysis 3. Witcher is another example of very multi threaded game engine.
So as time goes on, 7700 will become mediocre at best. ghost recon wildlands is example of games that NEED more than 7700K. It simply stutters despite good avg FPS. with ryzen 1700 (which happens to have 16 threads), it has lower avg FPS but much smoother gameplay.

Since you are asking those questions, 8700 + 1080 would be the best choice. the difference between 8700 and 8700K is under 10% even overclocked.
As mentioned above, adding SSD at any point in time is very easy. and they are kinda cheap.
250GB starting at 75$.
500GB starting at 130$
1TB starting at 230$

Happy New Year.

First of all i can't really deside on what GPU would fit me the best for - Gaming/Streaming.
As in my country GTX 1080 by EVGA(LINK) is cheaper than GTX 1070 Ti by Zotec(LINK ).

Is actually 1080 better than 1070 ti?
Was taking this as example - https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1wGRZ-5sl7G9DhIgwW36g2KnrwVfZqBW7GDKHOd2vbaM/edit#gid=0

Is there any specific GPU you guys can suggest for gaming/streaming in 500-700 eur range around there.
CPU is gonna be I7-7700k.

Thanks in advance.

The GTX 1080 is faster. If it is cheaper as well. There is no reason to buy a GTX 1070 Ti. Unless you can find a GTX 1080 Ti in that price range. You aren't going to do any better than a GTX 1080.

​​​​​​Looking for new GPU and was wondering if a 1070 ti oc preform almost like a 1080? I am leaning towards the Zotac cards, but is it 1080 worth it? The clock rates seem to just be off by a hair. Also if you have a better card to recommend please do thanks.

Nvidia didn't allow factory overclocks on the 1070Ti because that will match or beat a 1080. Several board partners did include an overclock setting that will automatically overclock the card a moderate amount. An overclocked 1080 would still be faster though. It all comes down to price, and the 1070Ti MSRP was supposed to be about 0 less than the 1080. It's worth it at that price differential. But prices have been screwed up forever.

Of those 3, I'd go for MSI 1070Ti. But unless you really need a new card now, I would wait. I wouldn't want to pay more than MSRP for an architecture that's more than 2 years old. Even if prices are increased on the next generation, you should be able to get 1080 performance at an 1160 price point.
