980Ti Waterforce comparison

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm about to upgrade my personal rig which is a 6700k and a 980ti waterforce. I'm wondering if my 980ti still holds up in 2019, and where does it stands in the chart compare to others 10 and 20 series cards. Specific models would be nice. 

Thanks in advance!

GTX 980 ti is like a 1070 or a 2060 or a vega 56

That is a blatant, and false rumor. They do not reduce performance of older cards.

They are all within 10-15% of each other, this is a general overview and a golden sample 980ti will beat a shitty 1070, but a good 1070 would beat the 980ti.

the 1660ti is about 8-10% slower, the 2060 is about 7-10% faster than the 980ti.

980ti is often very close to 1070s, as in margin of error differences most of the time as far as I can tell.

RX5700 dont have a miner that work for them yet so no one really knows if they will be any good, unless that has changed in the last few days since I last looked into it.

Does the card still do what you need it to do? If so, no upgrade necessary. If you want ray tracing, grab a 2060S or 2070S or an older 2070

Read what I said, IF it still does what you need then don’t upgrade. If you want ray tracing upgrade to one of the aforementioned models.

 

the 20 series will definitely improve your gaming experience - 2060 maybe not so but 2070 and up and 2060S and up.

No but upgrading to a BETTER card will. The flagship of yesteryear is the midrange of this year.
