    At 200w more :eek:. Not sure anyone would think it worth it or would rush out to buy one.

    Irrelevant outside of making a youtube video out of it.

    If you put all that extra power on a 230-240 Watts card it's not that you could reduce its lifespan. You are killing the card, and you can expect it to die any day.

    On the other hand, if you give 400+ Watts to any card it will get faster, surprise!!!!

    Biggest online PC store in my contry:

    - Vega56: cheapest 499€

    - RTX 2070: cheapest 519€

    So do yourself a favor, and unless you like making pointless videos on youtube, buy a 2070. Or buy a Vega56.

    But don't spend 500€ on a card and fry it.

    zotac 980ti amp Extreme has default 320W and max 435W (112%), I've set my Omega model to that a long time ago and so far so good, well it doesn't go over 330w anyway, max I saw was 325w or so, but at max volts 1.230v and 1480mhz.

    this thread seems something alike seen earlier ......any way.....

    Yes.....my opinion is to wait for the next "TUNING" .....sorry ..... TURING version.....( may be RTX 2081 Ti)

    This is really useful. But I'm really not sure how to fully understand the second chart.

    Similar to first chart GTX 1080 is 100%. The confusion this is the green texted columns but that is their internal Indexing scheme ... not sure but they might place weights on certain review parameters (performance, price, etc... ) to arrive at the Index number. I think going to the review site should reveal their methodology.
    Primarily focusing on the non-green texted columns should tell the same story.

    So got the card in and played a bit, Witcher 3, Far Cry 5, Wolf 2.

    Pretty much as expected, not a huge difference but now I can go 1440p and keep 75 fps pretty much all around.
    Except in Wolf 2 where everything maxed and 1620p / 75 with ease!

    Witcher 3 seems still to be a bit tricky to run all maxed but 1440p / 75 is doable by dropping a few settings. Or 1080p / 75 with max settings, well, almost. Depends much on the environment.

    Also briefly tried the OC scanner and it gave max boost 2040 MHz.
    Card remains at around 65 C even overclocked so temps not an issue.

    Very useful table... Interested though on performance when RTX is on. Want to see the performance hit and what card can still maintain at least 60 fps for a specific screen res.

    To add something negative to the mix, RTX 2070 users like me are pretty much out of luck driverwise atm:

    - only 416.34 and hotfix 416.64 drivers support RTX 2070 cards, earlier 400 series drivers don't (only 2080 and 2080 Ti)
    - 416.34 has flickering issues in Witcher 3 and Far Cry 5 (at least)
    - 416.64 fixes it, but causes DSR to CTD in Witcher 3 and Far Cry 5 (at least)
    - Witcher 3 and Far Cry 5 are pretty much the (only) games I play atm

    darn...

    Tried (twice), didn't help. DSR works on .34 (which I also un- and reinstalled twice).

    I'm pretty sure a 1060 would match and even exceed a 970. 1070 is about the same perf. as 980 Ti and 1070 Ti is ofc even faster.

    I don't know about your area obviously but here (Finland) 1060 6 GB cards seem to go for around 300 EUR, slightly under or above depending on model.

    Ditched my 1080 Ti for a 1070, and now a RTX 2070. I got alot worse performance with my 1080 Ti as my CPU was bottlenecking it.
    Most noticeable in BF5 Beta, as a 1070 was even beating my performance...

    I got the MSI Armor, it was a bit pricey but it was the only shop that had a few in stock so totally worth it. :)
    It was still cheaper then a 1080 so.

    Just picked up the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2070 Aorus 8GB and I am impressed. The card boosts out of the box to 1970MHz and runs very, very quiet. Temps in gaming hover around the mid 60's mark...Gigabyte have released a new BIOS for the card that increases the power limit but I am a bit wary about updating the BIOS...worried I will brick it as I have never updated a GPU BIOS....
