What do you think about SLI 1080 or selling my 1080 for a single 1080TI?
Single 1080ti is pretty fast. I'm not a fan of SLI/CF Unless your 4K 100Hz i dont think SLI is needed for the most part. Unless you have time to configure if something goes wrong i would be inclined to always opt for the fastest single you can afford.
Unless you need to have a rendering PC it doesn't need SLI enabled.
Im no enthusiast though so some of the other fellas here will probably give you a different perspective as im a casual gamer.
Yeah I'm thinking 1080TI as well, but than again. How far is Volta?
likely to be q2 2018. 6 months minimum. ...maybe nvidia show something at CES in january.
volta is already working
wont be this year
I was suspect we hear about it next May. NV can take their time, I want big improvements from Volta not an incremental. Basically grab a 1080ti and game untll your hears content.
Yeah I'll probably save and wait then. A GTX1080 at 3440x1440p is still very good
Thanks for that. Good read.
I'm not ready for a new build again, my current rig is the only time I've gone all out. I'm happy to skip this coming generation since my rig still pushes well beyond 100fps @ 1440p Ultra.
Maybe 2 more generations, I'll be ready. When 4k @ Ultra can push out 100fps on average Ohhhhhh yeaeeaaahh!
you saay that chino, then the hype train whistle wirrrs im the back ground, the idea of 4k at 100hz gets bantered around, next thing you know you've pre ordered two titan xp mark 2 gen x
We'll see. we'll see if I have to sell my body on the streets again.
I have a GTX 1070 from an acer predator G3 desktop, it looks a bit like a founders edition in the fan design. What options do I have to overclock? Was thinking of at least replacing the thermal compound with some liquid metal. Should I get an aftermarket cooler? Can I flash another bios on the card to increase core voltages?
1. Overclock till you hit thermals
2. No use just any normal NON CONDUCTIVE thermal paste
3. Can get a water cooling block and possibly AIO for the reference
4. No biosflash will help, you have to hard/shunt mod to get past power limit which beds water cooling at a minimum
Thanks for the replies guys , been running heaven for about an hour at these settings
Random questions guys
My water loop just leaked and a few things need replacing.
PSU is cooked.
Mobo is cooked.
CPU still works I think.
My GFX that I got from last year still works though. I am thinking of keeping it because from what I can see in the past year nvidia doesn't seem to have any signficant leaps of performance this year - is that comment more or less correct?
Is it the Titan X in your sig'? I assume it's the Pascal version?
If both those answers are yes, then I'd keep it because there's nothing worth upgrading to yet.
Yes its pascal
I read that the 1080Ti and the titan Xp are faster but even then it looked like only a few %. I haven't followed the market for a while so I just watched to make sure I was right about that bit. It used to that graphics cards advanced at least 30% per year.
Importing that titan was such a pain I will just keep using it for now.
Definitely not worth upgrading for the few percent, stick with the Titan X mate
if it is indeed a reference cooler, grab 1 of these (finding stock can be tricky) and run a decent fan.. ive never seen over 50c on my 1080ti version and its silent..
If i want to do similar can i?
