Would this be bad?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have a GTX 1660 Ti and I'm thinking about upgrading to a gtx 1070 Ti or a 1080 Founders edition. Would the 1080 be a bad idea?? Or should I just go with the 1070 Ti.

My current build is as follows:

CPU:Intel Core I5-9400F 2.9GHz

Ram: 16GB DDR4 

Storage: 1TB SSD

MotherBoard: H310 Chipset Motherboard Don't exactly know

Why do you want to change GPU? Are you not getting the performance you want out of it? Going to a 1070ti or 1080 won't yield you a huge difference

Welcome to the LTT forums! Unless you plan on performing productivity applications that could benefit from an additional 2GB of RAM you will see little to no improvements, as the 1660ti is about as powerful as a 1070ti.

The 1660ti is a brand new card. If you are having issue send it in for warranty.

1660 Ti and the 1070 Ti are almost level in terms of performance, with the 1070ti sitting about 10% ahead atm. But the 1660 Ti is expected to get better slowly over time as it's based on Turing and hasn't been completely optimized yet. The 1070 Ti is based on Pascal and has been out for quite some time so you won't really expect much for performance gains over time. I'd expect the 1660 Ti to level out in performance for the 1070ti in a few months.

 

As for upgrading to the 1080, unless you can get back 100% of what you spent on the 1660Ti to make it worth your while, it really isn't. You'd be getting maybe 30% better framerates than you are now with it. Save your money for a few months, sell the 1660ti and get a RTX 2070 or a 1080 ti.

Look into upgrading your CPU or overclocking. 

 

P.S. update your drivers, the launch drivers and the current drivers saw about a 10% gain in FPS for me
