GTX1080TI or RTX2070?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP

Hi guys, 

Recently with my country basically being put on lockdown, I've had time, which I've wasted playing games and looking at computer hardware (as anyone would do in these times). While making lists for a PC I might never build, I realized that the price of the 1080TI(MYR2000 - MYR2400) in my country had fallen to about the same price as the 2070(MYR2000 - MYR2200). That got me thinking, which one would be more worth it to buy at this point? I don't know much about what makes these cards different beyond one has 8GB of RAM at GDDR6 and the other has 11GB of RAM at GDDR5X. I would love to hear your opinions on this because I honestly don't have much else to do now🤣.

 

Cheers guys!

 

Edit

It seems I let the price get the better of me and I didn't check if it was a brand new unit or not. Turns out, I was looking at a pre-loved 1080TI. Vast majority it seems are still going for over 2800. Bugger. On the plus side though, I found a 2070S which was definitely brand new for 2300 and a 2070 going for 1800, so I guess it's not all bad. Anyone know how good the GALAX GPU's are🤣?

The 1080Ti is stronger than the 2070 (especially if it's not a 2070 Super), but it doesn't do RayTracing nearly as well.

If you care about raytracing, you need RTX. Otherwise, get the 1080Ti.

Also consider power usage however, since the 1080Ti will consume significantly more power.

1080 ti is still more powerful than the 2070, but you do lose out on some new fatures like rtx, dlss, the new nvenc encoder, and a few others.

I went for a 2070 as almost every single new game will have raytracing (even minecraft) Am a person that also cares about how the game looks, not just the play mechanics. But as Cyberpunk, gta 6, flight simulator is coming soon they most likely have Raytracing and it would look incredible...

Ah shoot, you're right, I should've checked the fine print. Looks like most places are still selling for 2800+ still. Damn

Try find a used 1080 Ti that is still under factory warranty and with good cooler at Facebook Marketplace for around 1.6k-1.7k

 

or Zotac 2070 Super AMP for RM2.4k

or 5700 XT Pulse for RM1.8k+

 

RTX2070 is fine if it not a lower end model for RM2k.

How much is the difference between the 2070S and the 1080TI? Is it a noticeable one?

Depend on games, almost similar performance but 2070S edge out on newer DX12/Vulkan games.

Which model? Their low end cooler is crap, higher end is great.

Crap, unless you don't mind running it at 80c+ all the time and lower performance than reference 2070S while gaming in SEA climate.

I see, okay. So I guess paying more for the MSI would make more sense then.

For me with the release of DLSS 2.0 which really is a game changer i'd go 2070 Super. 

In addition the new DX12 Ultimate and Vulkan API's now have built in ray tracing which should make its implementation more common.

 

Both of the above features can't or don't run as well on the 1080Ti even though its technically a stronger card.

I just grabbed a 1080ti for 400usd. As much as I’d like the new encoder offered, the price won me over and I don’t encode with the primary Gpu anymore.
