Titan X?

AmpedUpDad

Okay, so I just won a used Titan X from a fellow streamer. I am currently using a GTX 670.

 

I know that it is going to be an upgrade, but how big of an upgrade is it going to be?

 

Also, how does it compare to things like the 2060/70/80?

Which Titan X?

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally) watch YT and write essays...  nothing, it just sits there collecting dust...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

 

The original LAN PC build log! (Old, dead and replaced by The Toaster Project & 5.0)

Well you wont be getting ray tracing capability since the Titan X is a pascal card.

However, its about 3-4 times more powerful than your old 670.

So a massive upgrade and I can hold off on upgrading....at least for a little while.

What do you mean? The brand?

 

I wasn't aware of multiple Titan Xs.

There is a Maxwell based one and a Pascal based one with quite a disparity in performance. Its a great upgrade either way

With the Maxwell one you are looking at 100%+ GPU upgrade from a GTX 670 (which has similar performance to 960)

Any titan is an upgrade from the 670, so you've scored. Take a screenshot of GPUz once you install the card and upgrade your drivers.

 

However, what CPU are you using? I hope there's no bottleneck.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

I have an i5-3570k oc'ed to 4.2ghz.

 

I plan on trying to OC it more, at some point, but for now, I can't upgrade.

 

The money I was saving to get a new GPU is now going to go towards a new case and CPU cooler to push some OCing.

Looks like i5-3570k OCed @ 4.2ghz

 

Can put GPU money to new CPU and MB in time definitely. Nice win for the GPU

Good luck then, hopefully your game library isn't so CPU intensive. Either way you'll get a performance uplift, and cranking up the resolution and details will help utilize the graphics card enough.

Well, I am waiting for the Ryzen 3000 cpus before upgrading, since I stream/game.

Now that will be a nice upgrade. For now, your GPU encoding quality will be increased, presumably that's what you've been using, or a capture card, since you only have a quad core?

When I am PC gaming, I just go straight through the PC.

 

Capture card is used for my consoles.

 

I haven't been told it looks "terrible," but it can obviously always be better.

you should look up how to use hardware encoding, to leverage your new GPU and free up the CPU

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

NVEnc makes the output look like mud, at least in that gen of cards.

And yet this Titan probably beats my 670 with a pillowcase full of bars of soap.

 

And then backs over it with its hummer.

A really well overclocked TITAN XM with 1550mhz~ 1600mhz on core clock will perform about the same as a GTX 1070 Ti.
