GTX 1070 with Athlon II X3 455 benchmarks at Ultra Quality settings

It is clear that the GTX 1070 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 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. This combination between GTX 1070 and AMD Athlon II X3 455 is going to cause serious bottlenecks in many games and cause severe 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 2016 .

If they are the same price the 1070. If the 1070 is 450 and the 980ti is say 350 get the 980ti. I have a friend that just got a evga gtx 980ti classified for 0 if you can find that take it.

Best overclock settings for GTX 1070 ti?
By best, I mean maximum performance without harming it. Mine is an ASUS CERBERUS and I have MSI Afterburner

cookeroxidize 4 months ago
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.

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.

shriekpawing 4 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.

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.

GTX 1070 or 980 ti

I got Asus 980 ti reference card and i love it, but i have someone who does a deal to a ROG OC 1070. Should i trade?

Yes, the cooler on the 1070 is far ahead of the blower-cooler on the 980ti.

Performance aside, if that's your deal breaker then go for it. It will just be a loss for the other guy.

Gainward GTX 1070 vs GTX 980 TI SC
Need a quick consensus on which card is a better performer. The Gainward GTX 1070 dual-fan (think its the base version for Gainward's 1070s) or the EVGA GTX 1070 SC ACX 2.0?

Gtx 1070 vs gtx 980ti vs gtx Titan X

Look, in my country these cards cost the same price on the aftermarket and I'm willing to buy 1 of those. Which one should I get? Same price, literally 400$.

teddymetal 5 months ago
the 980ti and 1070 are equal in performance. the titan x is faster than both. if you are talking out the box speeds with no overclock, yes the 1070 wins. but the 1070 can only overclock roughly 20% while the 980ti/titan x overclock 40%. if you take the max safe stock bios overclock @ 80c max core temp on all cards the titan x is the clear winner here if gaming performance is the only metric.

Gtx 980 Ti vs Gtx 1070
Which One is better?
The 980 Ti (Zotac Amp Omega~390€) It's 80 euros cheaper than the cheapest 1070 (EVGA FTW~470€) I could find.
Is the extra money worth it, If the answer is yes, why?

dextrousribbit 5 months ago
they were about equal. but 1070 will have extra 2GB more VRAM than 980Ti. and probably will also fare better in DX12 title using Async because of dynamic load balancing that has been introduced with Pascal architecture.

How in the world is this GTX 1070 beating a 00 GPU??? This graphic card cost around 0 which is 40% of the GTX Titan X value, but preforms even better? On another note, will there be any bottlenecks with a i7 6800k?

Is GTX 1070 Ti overkill for 1080p 60Hz?
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.

gtx 1070 vs gtx 980 ti
which is faster? ive seen so many benchmarks with these two paired against each other but some people show that the 1070 is faster while others show that the 980 ti is faster than the 1070. so in general, which is better in gaming?

synthesisgem 5 months ago
When you were comparing the benchmarks were the games operating with exactly the same settings? If the same settings were not being used then your comparisons are meaningless.

If the same test platform, game and graphics settings are being used then the reference design GeForce GTX 1070 is definitely faster than the reference design GeForce GTX 980 Ti.

GTX 1070 in main slot and 2 780 ti in sli?
I have a Rampage Black Edition motherboard was wondering can run my 780 Ti in sli with my 1070 GTX in the main slot?, Or do I just run the 780 Ti's just for the physics side on the #2 and #3 slots with out the sli option?

1070 or 780ti in SLI for gaming. Can't use both for FPS madness. You could possibly use them as physics cards but you don't get a huge benefit from that anyway

Replacement Fan for GTX 1070 ti zotac mini
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?

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.

GTX Titan X or a GTX 1070.
I've seen Titan X's on ebay for less than or roughly at 0. I'm curious and any help would be much appreciate if it's worth getting the Titan X or a 1070. What's the benefit of getting a Titan X now as compared to a GTX 1070?

GTX 1070 or 1070 ti?
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?

My 1070ti is OC'd to be better than even some 1080's that are OC'd. 1070ti all day, especially for only 37 dollars more.

GIGABYTE GRFORCE GTX 1070 G1 GAMING 8GB

I have GIGABYTE PSU 500 WATT
Could this PSU handle any of them with the i7 4770 or no???

A quality 500w will support a 1070, but not a 980 ti.

Key word being quality wich the gigabyte unit is not.

Between the two cards I would opt for the 1070 because it has dx 12, hdmi 2.0 and uses less power while being near the same performance level.
You also likley find a new 1070 for cheaper then a used 980 ti.

GTX 1070 vs 980ti
Hi, i have a GTX 970, i want something to perform better but i also do not want to spend 0 on a graphics card, i can get a 980ti for about 0-0 currently. I have looked up numerous videos and they are pretty comparable FPS wise in most games i play. Should i just get a 980 Ti for the price?

The 980 Ti might be the better option for the price in your case. Check out a few "GTX 980 Ti vs GTX 1070" benchmark videos online and see what you think. I'm assuming the 980 Ti that you're looking at is in good condition and hasn't been carelessly OC'ed.
