Wait or buy now?

Recommended Posts

are you still contented with your current GPU? if so stick with it for now. if you think that the next gen GPU are worth the wait, why not wait . Intel plans to release their Discrete GPU next year too maybe that may be something that can cause a bit of a hype.


Im with the mentaility of "IF IM NOT SURE IF ITS ENOUGH COOLING, GO OVERKILL"

 

PS: i cooled a Ryzen 5 3600(65W) with ID cooling SE207 (200W-250W tdp lol)

There is also the upcoming "big Navi" releases to contend with, and they very well could beat out the Nvidia offerings at the same price point.

If you're looking for an upgrade now, I'd say go for an RX 5700 or XT.

To be honest, it depends. If you are fine with starting to get medium to low settings in games or even a decrease in resolution just to have 60 fps or just lock it at 30fps for a few months, why not. I think 1050Ti is still fine. if not, ye, get the cheaper options first and save up for the next release. just sell whatever GPU you will get now when the time comes.

I really want to play new titles though at really high settings so should I wait?

 

The 5700 series, XT in particular, can max out settings in the majority of games at 1440p and still get you at least 60FPS. The ones it can't are just the ones that have settings that push the VRAM usage past 8GB, and have issues using shared RAM stably.

Whatever NVidia GPU is coming next at the 2070 SUPER's price point is probably going to perform like the current 2080 or 2080 SUPER.  In other words, it's not going to be enough of a speed bump to get 4K at 90hz with "ultra settings".

 

So buy the 2070 SUPER now, use it for a few years, then see what's on the market.

Yeah, no telling what the next gen will actually have. Either buy now at a lower price to hold you over, or be contented with what you have now, or be contented with what you buy now. The choice is yours.
