New Nvidia Cards

Postby MiddlePC » Sun Dec 04, 2016 5:34 pm

I currently run 2 Asus Strix 970s in SLI and I want to sell them and buy a 1070 because of the efficiency of running just one card. I've looked at benchmarks but can someone who runs a new series Nvidia card tell me their experience with the performance. Preferably someone who runs a 1070 or 1080. Compare them to your last card whatever that was... Thanks!!!

The general rule about "graphics cards" and other PC performance parts, is that you don't want to bottleneck performance in any one area. Therefor depending on what setup you are running, what monitor and resolution, is going to determine which graphics card and PC parts are best for you.

I have a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition on a Phanteks Waterblock. The CPU is a i7 6900k 8-core with 32GB ram. And the monitor I'm running is a 34" ASUS 3440x1440 100hz ultra wide. Which the GTX 1080 runs flawlessly. Albeit the frame rates could be a "little" higher in some of the newest games on ultra graphics. But you have to consider that this is an extremely high resolution monitor with a lot going on. So nothing but a 1080 is going to run well, and preferably two 1080's I hate to say. But if you are runnign 1920x1080 resolution for example, a 1080 is going to blow it out of the water by a long shot and probably not even necessary you see?
