GPU for 1440p @ >120hz

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Recently bought an Alienware Ultrawide and realized that my 980ti struggles to push 100+ fps @ 1440p.

 

So im in the market for a new GPU (honestly a whole rig upgrade but one step at a time lol). I can hold out for a while in regards to a gpu seeing how the 30xx series is rumored to release this year. Or should I just get 2080/2080ti and call it a day?

 

Suggestions? The rig being updated is in my signature

Just wait and play with ur 980 ti.

The 2080 ti is just nvidia with the crappy overpriced. Wait till nvidia and amd drop the new gpu. Sadly we don't know when thatll happened since this covid but apparently amd is going to drop the cpu in September soo gpu could also be this year.

 

Now if money ain't a big deal and you cant wait 5 months-10. Then Just get the 2080 ti.

Everything above 10%, is considered bottlenecking. Your current CPU is about 21%, which actually is a lot

If you upgrade to a 1080TI, you coulg get the FPS you want, without to much bottlenecking. The 1080TI is good for a smooth 1440 gaming experience.

You can always start upgrading cpu 1st

Should give you a nice jump. Get a ryzen 3600/x/3700x. With a b450 tomahawk you be Gucci. 

 

I would get a 3600 and b450 tomahawk till amd drops ryzen 4000,but im not sure if the b450 tomahawk will get an update to the bios to support ryzen 4000 since.

You can always get a different board. Not b450.

sorry. my fault..   still, he is above 10%, which still is not good.   Cpu upgrade first, THEN gpu

do not trust any bottlenecking calculators. the i7 6800k is still very decent gpu. waiting for new gpu's is a good idea.

rtx 2080 ti is veru good and very overpriced, you should wait for new gpu's later this year.

 

 

first the gpu then cpu, but 1440p uses your gpu more than your cpu so you are fine with that cpu of yours.

My Opinion: with a 6800k or a 3770k I see no problem with a 2070super/2080/1080Ti/2080super being an excellent 1440p120hz+ setup, I use a 1080Ti for 1440p 144hz and I enjoy it very much. you may see some CPU bottlenecking on newer titles that can use Higher core counts reliably... however IMO most games on which high refresh rates are very desirable are often less demanding due to their fast paced competitive nature over astonishing graphics and physics.

i7 6800k is 6 core 12 thread 3.4ghz cpu. With good cooling it can be oc'd to over 4ghz. it is still great cpu. do not get new one.

At 1440p a lot will be dependent on what you play.  If you play taxing games, you wont get those rates without a 2080ti.  However, if you are OK turning some settings down or play some games that arent as intense graphically, a 2070S at the lowest, or a 2080.  The 2070S would be the value buy since its so close to 2080 performance.  

 

Depending on the game I am just getting in the 60-100 fps range with a 2080ti at 1440p (obviously the big AAA games with settings at max).  On esports games and lighter games I can finally push up to 144 hz.  It is just very difficult for a GPU, hence why you have to go big (2070S minimum)

if you plan on playing now and want that performance upgrade a mean a 2070super or Ti will probably cut it, i dont think theres any need for a 2080ti


stuff is cool. stuff that has fancy lighting is cooler. stuff that has fancy lighting and works is the coolest.

 

i game so i know a bit abt gaming tech, not much abt professional tech.

 

writing this as i finish a 3 hour D2 sesh so excuse anything wrong.
