What's coming out of nvidias mouth is not matching up with what retail stores and independent tech mags are seeing. I still don't really get your point in the original comment. Of this, clock speeds is not the end-all feature to judge performance comparisons by, as what it has been been in the past. I have a large 4K monitor which is good for working, but Im planning to upgrade my graphic card so I can play something else than WoW at 4K.
The new version supports a wider range of video standards, allows for higher resolutions and doesn't sap your processor as much as the previous version. And the community seems to agree. A 1080 ti was the bare minimum for running the game at 4k 60fps on ultra. Running them flat-out and hot is less efficient. Be prepared though, if the 2070 is a beast then you will need to be quick on the trigger to secure an order. Here's a link to back up my claim.
I figure the small difference in performance between the 2070 and 2060 was worth the cost difference. For now, 1080ti is closer to 2080. That might give the 1080 the edge in terms of performance per dollar. A YouTube video shows the scene that we tested each card on, with live frame-rate and frame time data embedded below. Another of the main games of the event was Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Other games are a different story sometimes but it is more than playable.
The 2070 is probably good for 1440p but not for 4k. I studied several articles on ray tracing and it is quite complex! The Gaming Z is pre-tweaked out of the box, resulting in a 210Mhz increase to the boost clock of the reference 2070. Always be wary of anyone selling 1080's and 1080ti's used. I think real detail is in the system configuration. I think if you plan to play 4k with different games probably the 1080ti within the options you gave would be a better idea but we aren't talking about a death choice here.
Any comments on reliability or improvements around his would be appreciated. Force Splatted Flocking Swarm 222 fps 271 fps Faster complex splatting. I wonder if 2070 and 2080 will be even able to handle ray tracing. Yeah, that's what I'm going to do. Just make sure you buy from one the brands that offer a really solid warranty due to some of the issues being reported.
Please keep in mind that we are here to help you build a computer, not to build it for you. It's a complex topic and the answers aren't all that clear yet, but we can give you a good indication of what to expect once these features start to be supported in real games. You end up spending more on power than you gain in hash rate. It is future proof and more optimized for 1440p. Since they should get in to high 4ghz range on 7nm.
That allows the graphics card to deliver a final image that looks similar to one produced with traditional anti-aliasing while using half of the shading power. So I am building a new computer but cannot really decide between 1080 and 2070. Great performance and reliable, but the newest Assetto Corsa releasing soon is implementing ray tracing, so I'm double thinking the 2070 option. It features the new 16 nm down from 28 nm Pascal architecture. This new series is built with the new Turing architecture and They have Ray Tracing technology to be able to follow much more closely the shadows and reflections in video games.
Because I always see benchmarks done at Ultra settings, I have no idea if the cheaper cards will be able to reach my target framerates just as well as the more expensive ones will. We could well see a little bit of extra performance squeezed from this card as its drivers continue to be developed. A 2070 would have to go even lower. The gap narrows at 4K, where the 2070 rounds up to 62fps on average while the 1080 comes in at 61fps. Here's what I bought and can use as soon as it comes in tomorrow. Even better it is 4K ready as you are willing use high settings. Performance is smooth for both cards throughout, with the 2070 averaging around 73fps and the 1080 at 68fps.
