The 2060 couldn't run 1440p 144hz in 99% of games lmao
It does 80-130 FPS at Ultra in 90% of AAA games
It does 80-130 FPS at Ultra in 90% of AAA games
Certainly not @ 144hz.
You won't find a new 1080ti for $680, and this has much more scope to improve with game and driver optimisations.
You're right. Having a look now, it's hard to find even a used GTX 1080 TI for less than $700.
@NiteMice: You are probably reading American forums where 1080ti stock held on longer, or just older comments.
The time to buy 10 series cards is as good as gone now IMO, 2060 on sale around $500 is good value for what it is. This is better.
@scuderiarmani: I'd honestly take the Gigabyte Windforce OC 2060 @ $500 instead of this.
@jasswolf: Give or take 20% improvement in this…id go the better GPU and be less inclined to upgrade as soon.
@scuderiarmani: It's actually a 5-15% performance drop, averaging out around 10%.
@scuderiarmani: Definitely hard to find 1080 TIs cheap, even second hand. If you check Gumtree, there are very few 1080TIs for less than $800. People seem to want a lot for them.
I did a fair bit of research and ended up biting the bullet on the 2070 today, particularly because ray tracing will become more mainstream over the next few years.
@Bog: Will it though?
@RI4V4N: Maybe. It's a big leap for graphics, and Nvidia have thrown their weight behind it.
Looks like you need eBya Plus to get it for $680 delivered. Otherwise it's $695.
I believe it's a free trial to get eBay PLUS.
I must resist upgrading my GTX 980 for a little longer.
Next series would be a lovely huge jump performance wise with a more ready rtx need.
I'm in the same boat. 2070 is pretty much twice the performance.
Just got this and I'm also upgrading from a Gtx 980… excited.
Is it worth the upgrade? Decisions…
Can only let you know on Monday when it gets here!
It doubles the score on 3D Mark from a GTX980 to RTX2070. I dare say it's worth the upgrade but I'm holding of as I'm thinking about upgrading whole computer.
@willy000: If you're planning a new build then hold off for the Intel 10th gen chips for sure as they supposedly going to be a pretty good upgrade (9th gen was just a slightly updated 8th gen chip) when they release this year; you can buy a new gpu for now and then just incorporate it to the new system later.
If you do wait through, maybe the rumored GTX 1180 will be more appealing if you're not big on RTX ; that card is supposedly a 2080 without the new features (which aren't looking like they are worth it for the time being).
@twdnewh: Those 1180 'rumors' are based on info from before or around when the 2080 released, when everyone thought the 2080 was going to be the 1180. Very unlikely they will release a non-rtx card faster than the 2060 methinks.
@Alzori: Looks like the 1180 rumors were updated just yesterday.
Please disregard then. Go for this card :)
I'd wait for Navi..
i upgraded from a GTX 980 last week, to a 1080ti from ebay US for $600USD. IMO, 980 GTX still does a terrific job and the upgrade has been minimal visually, mostly because I'm playing older games. Metal Gear Solid V still runs top FPS and looks great on both cards. Ive maxed everything in the nvidia profiles. I havent tried with more recent games yet.
I'm also gaming on a TV, so I can only assume the upgrade would look better on a gaming monitor.
I'll get $250-$300 resale for the 980, going by current prices in my area (Im living overseas).
HODL your 980s
forced selling at a high price by manipulating stock availability ie ozzie market economics by oligopoly reinforced by government policies to support price rigging.
Is this card still give free games?

This is a really good price - oh man, i've spent all my monies on hard drives :'(
I'm running this at 1440p @ 60Hz playing GTA V on near max settings. Very playable.
CPU is an i5 9600k
Did you build your machine after watching The Verge's video or something?
HAHA love it.
I see what you did here…
Why bottleneck frames with 60hz… i dont get why spend the money for nothing.
i dont have a faster monitor
I think what he's saying is that a lower spec'd 2060 or something along those lines, at a cheaper price point, would most likely run games at 1440p at or around 60 FPS. If you're capped at 60 FPS by your monitor and you don't plan to upgrade any time soon, why spend the extra on a video card when you could get a cheaper one that could dish out 60 frames to your monitor.
The only argument I could see is for future proofing for a new 144hz monitor or something
@sghetti: It's because I plan to upgrade the monitor shortly
@whaleoilbeefhooked: Then it's not spending money for nothing :) Continue on. Great price point for this GPU. Spewing as I bought a 2060 for just under $600, would've much preferred to have spent a few extra dollars on the 2070.
Good price actually, shame I'm looking at a 2080 still
Still running my ATI Radeon 5870 from 2010 #winning
Probably due for an upgrade soon - this is very enticing
There is nothing #winning about that. I recently put in my old 7870 for a laugh, and I didn't actually get to laugh. I just wanted to kill myself.
I think it comes down to what games you are playing, card and system is fine for Dota 2, Starcraft 2, 1080p youtube and netflix etc.
Haven't found the need to upgrade anything but to SSD in 9 years.
Winning in terms of not having to upgrade - spent 2k on the PC at the time, if it lasts 10 years then 200 per year isn't so bad.
After all this is ozbargain
Does it actually play 1080p smoothly? Because even my 7870 on a 4th gen i5 with 12GB of RAM (my bedroom rig that barely gets used) drops frames watching YouTube, but is fine when you drop a 1060 6GB in it.
@BradH13: Yeah it does, I've never noticed any drops, I did a test on youtube today - only 1 of the video's did it drop frames 20/10,000.
The other video's 0/10,000 were dropped.
Just taking a wild guess but could it be the i5 being an issue?
I can imagine how good a 1060 or a 2070 would be - worlds apart.
What are you playing at, 4k? otherwise its just fine.
I upgraded from a GTX580 to this. I was pleasantly surprised, lol
Man I loved those cards back when I was peak gaming/old enough to to afford whatever I wanted.
Must have owned 5 of them at various times with 2 & 3 times crossfire and searching for better clockers.
If you are actually gaming, you will fall off your chair with a modern high end card.
I had a mate go from an OEM GTX645 2GB to a GTX1060 6Gb And he "hardly saw any difference".
Put the 2GB card in another system with similar specs and he was like "whaaat?"
Same thing happened with my spare card. Had a R9 270 and back in the day these were awesome (7870)and attempted to play Black Ops 2 at 1080p and it struggled even overclocked.
You should even just buy a 1060 6GB and you'll be laughing
Yeah I am thinking of doing a full build and only carrying the storage across once this PC dies.
Just waiting to see what burns out first - graphics, cpu, mobo, ram or the water cooler haha
my msi armor 2070 on BFV Ultra outputs 80-100fps @1440, ryzen 5, 32gb ram 3200.
Can anyone comment on the various cooler designs and which is quietest/nicest tone, coolest, etc?
Heard that triple fans are supposedly quieter in that they can spin slower than twins, but then heard that the MSI ones are super quiet too?
I presume you're asking those who neg anyone who reckons this ain't much of a bargain….
Have a look at some of the reviews; I read that because this card turns the fans off when there's no load on the GPU, it revs up really hard, which can be annoying.
I didn't really care about that, so I bought one anyway.
Yeah, I'm currently running a 970 Strix which is twin fans and shuts off when not under load.
The thing sounds like a jet engine on anything past 50% with the main contributing issue being the frequency and tone of the fans.
I definitely think this price is a bargain, but thought would be good info for all readers to see if anyone had insight into (potentially) quieter card designs.
Sadly acoustics is not a thing covered very well with many reviewers :(
Edit - autocorrect Strix
I wonder how good SLI 2070 vs 2080TI even a 2080 for that matter if its any good.
Decent price, but I'm still holding out for a 2080 at least for this gen.
Just go for biggest single chip you can get.
SLI/Crossfire never worked as you would expect and they really aren't putting the effort into it anymore due to this.
Maybe one day bandwidths will get so high and they will design around "multiple chips addressed as one unit" again like they are starting to play with again in the HPC markets.
2070 does not support SLI at all. SO if you want sli , you have to at least get 2 RTX2080.
Newegg has lots of negative reviews about the this particular model failing and causing artifacts, which is a bit concerning.
Yeah, I went with the MSI version because of this and I've never had a problem with MSI before. Was $25 more, but when you're talking about close to $700, hopefully it's worth the peace of mind.
I love my 1080ti. Not moving :P
Got this in the last 15% off ebay sale when CA sold it for $749, it's fantastic. Too bad they keep increasing the price. Overclocks like a champ and super quiet most of the time. Running on 120hz 3440x1440 ultrawide on ultra or high settings and it's a breeze, never seen it go past 72C even in our disgustingly hot summer weather compared to my old 1070ti which hovered around 85 for lower performance. Have to agree ray tracing is a gimmick though.
Bought this last week but the factory OC version which is a few bucks more. Runs far cry new dawn in 4K which surprised me. Big upgrade my gtx960
theres no way a 500watt power supply would run this right? I have the silverstone 500w gold rated efficiency
it should be able to, maximum you need is 550W afaik
500w will be fine, especially if you aren't overclocking.
It definitely will as I have this card and run it off a Thermaltake Smart RGB 500W
That's not a bad unit. As people have said it can run it, bUt it also depends what else you are running.
An overclocked i9-7900? Maybe not.
A stock i5-7600 and 1-2 SSD/HDD, wouldn't be an issue.
i am running the i5-6500 with one ssd and one hdd, nothing spectacular.
do i need to take in consideration of the power consumption to power three monitors? i do have 3 dell monitors U2711, U2715H and U3415W.
No, monitors don't count. Your PSU is a good unit, it should be fine.
I was looking to build a new PC this year, will this get cheaper later or this is a good price?
