you bought a Zotac from USA? hope no RMA needed
Im looking at a Zotac 1060 as the Amp is a nice size for my itx case.
$399 delivered https://www.amazon.com/ZOTAC-GeForc...e=UTF8&qid=1470268658&sr=1-2&keywords=gtx1060
get the EVGA one when back in stock?
I paid $648 shipped for my FTW. Boosts to 2114 constant in Battlefield 4. Bit better than most reviewed IMO, but that's about it. RGB light is good though, set to red to match my CPU Block LED and board lighting.
Standard Blue on the SC looked pretty NAF.
SC should be white LED
Yeah. I'm hopeful everything will go smoothly, and Amazon have been pretty good in the past with after sales support. Of course, it's probably not worth the risk to save $20 AUD, but anyway. I switched to the EVGA for peace of mind.
Cool, I was waiting to hear back on your results. I think I'll be happy either way.
Strix for $429 got my pick, the FTW was about $459 the other day, and I didn't want to get that 'DT' model
Seems most of the 1070s clock to about 2ghz and anything over that yields not much difference anyway?
yup we are talking maybe 1 frames at 1440p when these things boost to their max.
That's it, I'll be playing at 1440p and should be a good upgrade over my 780ti! (about 50% I think?)
yeah should be a fair whack quicker, i went from a 780 to this. My 780 was a classified which was pretty much a 970 reference. So about 100% performance boost.
I went from 2 x 780ti to 1x 1070 because 1070 > 2 x 780ti a lot of the time, and often SLI doesn't work or scales crap.
Will get second 1070 when cheaper.
1060 strix OC $549
1060 strix $529
Pretty pricey. I think your paying for the cooler.
Phoenix 1060 $479
I reckon the Gainward is the good buy.
Contemplating not putting a block on my 1070 Strix.. seems the aftermarket air coolers keep these things really cool anyway, and wouldn't make any performance difference.. they all hang about 60c loaded and cap out at 2000-2100mhz OCed from what I've seen.
Maybe my 360 rad can be dedicated for my 4770k and save $150 on not getting a waterblock this time around
Speaking of which.. having a hard time selling my 780ti waterblock, man those things are hard to sell.
Just picked up a 1070 strix off gumtree. Cant wait to put it in and make the most of 1440p
tweaktown 1080p review http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/78...r-performance-4k-60fps-single-gpu/index5.html
titan x might almost be fast enough for those 1080p 144hz monitors. not quite 144hz in all games but maybe with some effects off.
EK waterblocks available for the Titan X on 16 August
Good news for watercoolers i should of added
good effort on the Titan, nearly there, but not yet....still dipping to low 50 in more demanding games (Division won't even run 60) based on benchmarks. 1180/1180Ti will be the card for rock solid 4K60 (or 1440p144).
However will be interesting if guys here can post some game benchmarks once their got theirs in. Will be interesting to see the "real life" numbers and especially 4K with no bloody AA (still doesn't get why all the benchmarks are benching games @4K with AA).
Not so good news here, my wait for a pair of GTX1080 EK X has been extended as the original dealer could not supply even after they accepted payment in full against supposedly known stock levels & now telling me they cant obtain supply at all.
My order has now been cancelled & waiting for the funds to clear back into my account.
Have placed new order with my local dealer as although they had no stock at time of ordering I believe that their eta's are honest & I will at least be assured of my order being fulfilled once they arrive.
Ps I spoke to MSI directly in Sydney early today & the information I obtained did not match what I was told by the original supplier... strange that!
Just have too watch you guys posting your joy with your new 1080"s etc till mine come in & i can add to the joy.
Because AA is beneficial on larger monitors with 4k ie 32"+.
