Hi, you have to try really hard to damage newer GPUs with software OC.

Open MSI Afterburner, max your power limit, increase your core clock 50+ at a time while testing with UNIGINE Valley or Heaven benchmark at Ultra till artifacts (weird lines and colors) happen or your driver crashes. Then fine tune it by increasing 10 at a time from your previous clock. Do the same for Memory, then save your profile. Don't check apply overclocking at startup.
Example Core clock: +50 > +100 > +150 > crash > +110 > +120 > ....

Keep your temps below 85c, if you go over it or stay near it., consider installing a fan on your case near the GPU.

SLI requires the cards to have the same GPU and VRAM so a 1070 and a 1050Ti are not SLI compatible, plus the 1050Ti doesn't support SLI even with another 1050Ti.

Is the GTX 1080 worth buying today?
I have seen it selling for 50$ more than the GTX 1070 Ti.

Thanks.

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.

packagerooted 3 months 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.

Should i get a gtx 1070 or gtx 980ti? I can get the latter for about 70$ less than 1070. I've seen it being head to head with gtx 1070 ti after OC.

Then go for the 980ti. It is still quite powerful and should handle that resolution pretty well.

AFAIK, it should not bottleneck considerably. There will always be a bottleneck but since you have OC'ed it, it should give some good performance.

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?

endnotetokahee 3 months ago
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.

Hi, I just ordered a GTX 1070 ti ZOTAC mini for 250 bucks off of ebay. It has 2 fan blades broken off of one of the fans. I was wondering if I can let it run how it is or do I have to buy a new fan? If so where would I get a new fan?

cookeroxidize 3 months ago
If you want an exact match you can contact Zotac and see if they will give you a part number or send you the part.

That GPU is a little new to be needing a replacement, but you can also try your luck on places like ebay. Just enter the name of the card and replacement fan, usually someone selling something.

Myself, I would just replace the entire shroud with a pair of nice static pressure fans. Or water cool it with a universal block or all-in-one adapter like the NZXT Kraken.

I’m getting my first gaming pc and I’m stuck between the GTX 1070 SC and the GTX 1070 ti Strix. The 1070 TI Strix is only 37 dollars more than the 1070. Is it worth it? Or should I just save those 37 bucks and upgrade another part of my PC?

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

egretpunctured 3 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.

Hello
Recently my gpu died and I decided to save and buy a new gpu , a gtx 1070 . The price difference between the 1070ti and 1070 oc is 6dollars,which gpu is a better option?and is the 6 $ costlier 1070ti worth it ? I’ll be pairing it with i5 6600k but will very updating soon enough To a newer hen processor.

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.

What's the difference? The 1070Ti is only more, but the core clock is more and the boost clock is less. Can someone explain this to me?

I do not want to spend any more then this, would you recommend a different card anyways? Thanks again!

1070 ti has lower clocks, because NVidia decided that manufacturers can't make factory OC on them. But you can do it. Overall, 1070ti is always better then same model of 1070, because it has more CUDA cores - and if you OC it, it goes into 1080 territory.

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 ?

Hello, currently i am looking to buy a gtx 1070 ti (the 1080 is a lot more expensive) and the msi duke model (0 USD), along with the zotac amp dual fan (0 USD) are around -100 USD cheapers than the rest where i live. I was wondering if im losing a lot by going with this cheaper models or if they are good.

Atm im going for the msi duke, does anyone have any experience with it? is it loud?

its not like you are losing anythhing its just better GPU like Asus Strix or MSI Titanium Gaming has better Cooler so the GPu stays more cool and can be overclocked more and believe me 1070ti really heats up
go for the duke for better cooling

So I am thinking about upgrading my GTX 760s to a GTX 1070 Ti or RTX 2070. I am expecting them to run about the same speed but am concerned about bottle necking on something else, thoughts? I am upgrading to a 2560x1440 60Hz monitor and the common games I play are Insurgency: Sandstorm, War Thunder, World of Tanks, World of Warships, and Destiny 2.

CPU: Intel Core i5-4670 overclocked to 4.0 GHz

Memory: 16GB DDR3 1600

2070 performance is unknown. I would wait until the test are up.
For 1440p 60Hz, GTX1070-1080 is the recommended, if you wanna max out games.
If you aim for 1440p 144/165Hz, 1080ti or better is your only option.
I5 4xxx can still serve you well with some small bottlenecking on some new proc heavy AAA games. I would not worry about your I5 4xxx yet.
Buying 1070, 1070ti and 1080 is a bit tricky since the price is overlapping. You need to do your homework well before buying.
Rough performance guide:
1080 > 1070ti >1070
115% > 107%> 100%
Pick the best priced one or wait and see how 2070 performs

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'm planning on buying a decent graphics card and thought of going with 1070 but after some research i sathw that 1070 ti released a month ago was like 50$ more from 1070. So i was wondering which one would be better to get for the money? Also heard that 1070ti got some factory overclocking issue alough i dont know exactly what it is. Anyway need help choosing the right one. Thank you.

All 1070ti come at same clocks that nVidia recommends. But there are no issues in manually overclocking it. Actually, the 3rd party vendors keep the option open for it. The reason why nVidia barred the vendors from overclocking it at factory is that it comes very close to a 1080. So due to bureaucracy reasons, the vendors are forced to sell all 1070ti at same clocks but with different coolers. Just buy any 1070ti with a decent cooling solution and you can overclock it very easily via tools such as MSI afterburner. Also, just for a 50 dollar difference, 1070ti wins because it can almost reach the level of 1080.

Hello,

My card is working perfectly, i can OC it through Gigabyte aourus engine, but i have problems in MSI Afterburner.

First of all, the card fans stop working when i want to test them and put it on 100% instead of auto (possible conflict with aourus engine, here it works well)? Secondly, i've seen on tutorials, that gtx 1070ti could been put into 133% power limit, and mine can only do 120%.
I won't overclock it more, but i'm just curious why msi afterbrner doesn't seem to work correctly with my card.

Hey, have seen similar issues an limitations with MSI Afterburnger in the past and finally decided to use EVGA PrecisionX only for steering my GPUs. Works nicely over nearly all versions I have been using during the past years.

Hello community!

I'm looking to get my first computer build by fall of 2018, and was going to put in a gtx 1070 ti (by MSI). I have already settled on using a Ryzen CPU, to be specific a Ryzen 5 1600. and I thought earlier: "wait a minute, I forgot about potential bottlenecking".
So I thought what would be the best CPU to pair with this graphics card? I don't know so I thought I could ask you for help. (Oh yea, and I'm going to be playing at 1080p if that helps)
Again, I'm still quite new to this, and thanks for the help!

A Ryzen 1600 should be a perfectly good pairing with a GTX 1070 Ti. I know the current memory market is still pretty bad, but try pair it with a fast RAM kit if possible (2800-3200 MHz is a good sweet spot) as Ryzen greatly benefits from it in many scenarios including Gaming. I would not expect any CPU bottlenecking except in games that are either poorly optimised on the CPU or your trying to push a very high framerate where the CPU might not keep up (Shouldn't be a worry until at least 120+ FPS, give or take depending on the game). Just on a final note, i thought you should know Ryzen 2 is supposedly right around the corner! So it might be worth looking into that and potentially waiting if you feel it would be worth it! Hope this helps!

So i know they both have practically the same performance, one beating the other in some cases, and they'll both do the same in vr but I'm also considering maybe buying a 4k monitor and I don't know which would be the better buy. I know the 980 ti has 6gb of vram and the 1070 has 8gb but at 4k I heard it barely touches th 6gb mark. Plus on eBay I can get a 980 ti like cheaper than a gtx 1070. And I know your about to say "at that res you should really be going for a gtx 1080 or 1080 ti" but I can't afford the the 1080 or the 1080 ti so I'm stuck with this. I could really used some pro help.

It depends on how long it will take to get that extra , if it's like a week or so then I'd wait but if it's going to be like a month or longer then I'd go with the 1070.

Hi, after frying a MSI GTX 1070 Ti with the evga 600b after 4 hours of gameplay i manage to get a new gpu from warranty, GPU worked good on the first 4 hours of life and then started artifacting to dead. Im gonna get the new GPU tomorrow.

Im gonna change the PSU, since i dont trust that cheap evga 600b PSU
Im searching for a good quality PSU, to not to have this issue again.

My system SPecs:
Core i7 8700k
Z370 Asus rog strix H
16 GB Corsair vengeance lpx 3200 MhZ
Corsair H100i v2
Samsung evo 240 GB SSD
Western Digital 240 GB SSD
Msi Gaming 8 1070 Ti

Better than what you have, but those first generation EVGA PSUs had some build quality issues. That's why you'll see recommendations for G2, G3, B2 (but not B3) every day of the week and twice on Sunday, but won't see G1/B1 included.

Given that you have high-end components and can get a top-tier PSU for under from SeaSonic, I don't think even free is a good enough price for a lower-tier PSU.
