Would you..? Gtx 1070ti —> gtx 1080ti

There is a fair bit of performance improvement going from GTX1070 Ti (similar in performance to GTX1080) to a GTX1080 Ti (additional 3GB of VRAM to boot). So, if they're offering this upgrade, why not? BTW, how much do you need to top up?

My gigabyte 1070ti ( N107Tgaming OC8GD) failed on me but luckily it had warranty. So I took it back to my service centre and they are now currently offering me a gigabyte 1080ti ( gv-n108tturbo-11gd)

From what I can tell the 1080ti has lower clock speeds than the 1070 as it isn’t overclocked.. 

would you guys/ girls change? 

Just wanted to check for your opinions?

The 1080 Ti would have lower clock speeds because it has far more CUDA cores.

 

If the upgrade is free, don't question it and go for it. I would deal with a turbo blower cooler if it meant getting 1080 Ti. The tolerance of noise is up to you though.

1080 to 1070ti not that much of an upgrade but 1080ti is a huge step over 1070ti, so go for it.

The only downside is that the 1080ti they are offering you has a blower cooler. Otherwise it's simply just better in every way (exept power consumption).

It has over 50% more CUDA cores.... I'd change, 100% of the time.

Hey thanks for the quick reply, yes it would be free as they say they cannot get parts for repairing the GTX 1070ti... noise isn’t too much of an issue as the Ryzen 2700x fan is quite noisy as well...

ok thanks for the tip!

The turbo is the variant they offered .... they were not willing to give me anything better unfortunately .... a bit relieved that it’s better ... I wasn’t quite sure if it was majorly better or not... as I was only comparing the clock speeds.. 

well gotta wait for it though .... it’s coming from Taiwan... expected delivery date mid March.....

Regardless it’s way better than a mid range 1070ti.

I mean if it's a free upgrade.... yeah... it's around 35% faster than 1070ti.

this doesn't matter in a video card. unless you match 2 of the same types together. like an evga gtx 1070 sc vs evga gtx 1070 sc for example. 

When comparing your gtx 1070ti towards something newer you always need to check the differences at least nvidia wise in the cores. cuda cores rt cores etc etc etc. 

More = better. and the gtx 1080 ti has a lot more. it was the gaming king. well.. till the rtx 2080ti released and blew the 1080ti out of the water as if it was nothing xD 

But that will probably happen with the newest "80 ti" when that releases. next year or so.
