1440p Gtx 1070 or Rtx 2070?

Hello! I am currently in the process of upgrading my gaming rig, and Im planning on playing at 1440p. I already own a Gtx 1070 which looking at the bench marks and asking other techies, they said it should run 1440p just fine. But now with the release of the Rtx 2070 as controversial as it is, do you think its worth the upgrade?

1440p 60hz or 1440p 144hz? 2560x1440 or 3440x1440 (ultrawide)?

If you already own the GTX1070 then I see no reason to upgrade to an RTX2070.

I would hold out till some raytracing benchmark results come out before trying to see if it is worth the GTX 1080 like costs for the GTX 1080 like performance

 

as for rumor wise, I have heard that the RTX implementation isn't that good right now

 

if the rumors are true then I wouldn't buy it but if they are wrong then it is down to personal preference and my opinion I don't see raytracing worth the extra costs right now

I have no problems running most games at 21:9 1440p at high to ultra settings with my 1070. It's not time to upgrade yet, in my opinion.

 

I'm thinking around the release of Cyberpunk, Far Cry 6 or 7, or possibly when Nvidia gives us a good reason to upgrade to RTX.

 

Now if you only had a 970, then maybe I'd say it's worth it. But the 1070 isn't out just yet.

There's no real reason to upgrade your 1070. Raytracing is a new thing and there will definitely be flaws. The 1070 will handle 1440p perfectly fine. If you're upgrading it'll be a waste of money. If your card still works, then what's the point of upgrading to a newer technology that not many people have tested yet?

If you're concerned with 1440p performance then a used 1080 ti will easily do better than the 2070, that would be a worthwhile upgrade.
