Will the 3050 be better than the 1070

I just bought a used 1070, and I want to know if I am missing out on better performance.

Maybe? But odds are you aren't gonna find a 3050 for less than you can find a 1070 for anyway (last I checked going rate was about $350-400 for the blower models), so I wouldn't feel bad.

If the 3050 is as good or better than the 2060, we might see some slightly better performance, but chances are they'll be similar.

 

As with any product, WAIT until reviews come out and don't buy on faith. And you shouldn't buy anyway cause you just got a card.

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

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

probably not, following the normal method of each generation scales up 1 tier from the last a 1070, 2060, 3050 are all within a few percent of each other. DLSS would make it punch above it's tier but that's common on most cards and shouldn't really be a factor of "better"

Current Config:

Spoiler

R5 2600X @4.1ghz all core, 16GB Patriot 3200mhz, 1TB XPG SX8200 Pro nvme, RTX 2070 Duke, CM Elite 110 mitx, pair of KRK Rokit 6 monitors with 10in sub, BenQ TH671ST projector for 150" screen. 

MSI Prestige 14 with too many cooling mods to list out (it's quiet now)

There's a chance, but maybe the 3050Ti. Just my guess tho, don't take it too seriously.

It would come down to raytracing for the 3050 but your 1070 is still a better value.

Yup, I ordered a used blower model for 380$ from the facebook marketplace, and I have yet to receive it. By the way, are the blower models any good?

Typically they don't cool as effectively as other GPU fans. They also spin at a higher rpm and are smaller so they tend to be much louder. However if you have a small form factor PC it will perform better in these tight spaces with less air. From experience I have seen blowers work just as good as fans but depending on your rig temps will differ. I really don't think it will be a problem.

Cooling is meh, but the 1070 isn't that hot of a card. If it was like the same price to $20 more for a dual fan cooler, I would probably go with one of those since they tend to have slightly higher clock speeds, but any more than that and I'd stick with a blower model. The only exception to that rule is the FE cards or if you're running in an SFF situation, since the FE cards are usually the best binned of the generation so they clock really well even if they aren't cooled optimally, and in an SFF situation blower coolers tend to perform better than their dual fan brothers. 

 

EDIT: for proof the 1070 isn't that hot of a card

I had a Windforce 3x Cooler on my GTX1070 and it barely got above 72*c while overclocked Core and Memory were in play.
Colder days (Australia) it would easily sit in the High60s Low70s...Warmer days it might get up to 74-75*c at Max (2025Mhz Core), but no where close to 80-83*c Core Throttling point. And I never max my fans, they were on Auto so room left to increase airflow further.

 

GTX1070 is a solid GPU for 1080p today and lite-1440p as well on modern engines..
Older engines it's easy a 1440p High-Ultra GPU and Lite 4K 30-40FPS GPU at decent Medium/High settings.

Maximums - Asus Z97-K /w i5 4690 Bclk @106.9Mhz * x39 = 4.17Ghz, 8GB of 2600Mhz DDR3,.. Gigabyte GTX970 G1-Gaming @ 1550Mhz
