Wonder if the Samsung SM951 suffers from a thermal throttling issue?
Seems the SM961 does. It's not so much that it throttles as that's what it's supposed to do. Rather for large reads at full speed until it crashes:

After all the issues with TLC on the 840 and 840 EVO I really don't think Samsung's QA is not great. Winning benchmarks is all very well, but without reliability what's the point?
​It's a extended motherboard there sometimes add more features than traditional standard atx boards but mainly allow you to space your graphics cards so they have some extra breathing room
Here's a review to what Timmy Tom Logans review here's the link https://youtu.be/joyA7zrQVYQ. In there he explains about the current issues with memory post and timing issues with different memory sticks. If they launch a new bios fix soon I might nab this
What's an EATx board ?
Great price. Btw £250 would be for the non-titanium version of this board. So the price regardless of the extras is not bad.

Zotac GeForce GTX 980Ti at OcUK- £319.99 + Free delivery even Sat delivery (or pick up)

Pretty good deal for a 980Ti with 5 year warranty. Will trade places with or beat a 1070 when both overclocked. Uses a fair deal more power though and only has 6GB vs 8GB VRAM of the 1070.

This is easy, if you're spending this much just pay £40 more for a Palit GTX 1070 from Ebuyer or Scan, newer architecture and will have longer driver support.

I've been a member of that forum for over 13 years. I don't believe .what he is actually saying. He's mentioned this previously with other branded cards, then after one year it's sort it out with the manufacturer when you send a customer note to OcUK themselves. I'm willing to bet after the first 28 days, they will send the card off to Hong Kong and you are waiting at least a month for an out come.
Just for information purposes. Zotac RMA's are no longer processed in the UK. All customers now have to send their cards direct to Hong Kong.

no HDR for next generation games
and HDR capable monitors are where? Not even on the horizon ;)
monitors should not be used for the purpose, 4k TV's are the best for that, far superior for picture quality and cheaper proportionally, skip rubbish lg, Panasonic, some other rubbish makes and should be fine
bobo this is a graphics card - you bought up hdr - if you are using a tv then it probably isn't for computing unless you are going to stick it in a htpc (home theatre pc) hdr monitors are not on the horizon stay on point - this isa good deal and a card that will last 2ish years before replacement
I simply wanted to point out that at this price, the gtx 1070 is a much better deal and who can afford this one at this price can certainly afford a gtx 1070 and also less loss when it will come to sell

Less memory and fewer cores - NVidia should be a bit more honest and call this a GTX 1055 as it's likely to be somewhere between a 1050 and 1060 in performance terms. This sort of deliberate market confusion just damages the company's reputation and it's not at all necessary.

seems great bang for the buck (not everybody is concerned of the future but maybe wants to play here and now)
unfortunately Overclockers and Scan DO NOT ship to continental EU.
Do you know of any reputable seller that does this? Apart from usul Amazon.co.uk
tnx
I'm not sure if you're missing a point here. The full 6GB 1060 doesn't prevent you playing in the here and now. The card's been out for weeks and is readily available, so you're not trading the present for the future as you seem to think, you're getting a card that performs better today, and that'll still be usable when this cheaper and weaker alternative is ready to be retired.

Neither of these cards will "be retired" while playing 1080p games.

The worst case scenario is a few titles push the VRAM to past 3gb and you would have to turn down the textures a bit.

This card is absolutely a great card right now. It may have VRAM limitations in 2+ years, but at 188.99, it's a really good price.

The CUDA core reduction of 11.1% is less than the AMD 8GB->4GB VRAM clock speed reduction (8ghz->7ghz). That's over 14%.

I'm looking for a graphics card to run three monitors for work with my 4th gen i7 desktop. I'm assuming this would this be overkill? I don't really need it for gaming. Would prefer to spend less than £100, but need something that will be fine with three screens. My current graphics card (GTX 745) only has two outputs. Any advice appreciated :-)
try gtx 660, should be cheap by now. Im using 2 gtx 660 ftw for gaming and i have 3 monitors on sli surround.
Why are these so hot?
No stock,no reviews #softlaunches becoming the norm!
Very cheeky for Nvidia to call this a 1060 but cut down the chip so much. That's without even talking about the paltry 3GB of VRAM. I would steer clear of a 3GB card in 2016, even 4GB won't be enough soon for the latest games.

Zotac AMP! Omega Core Edition GTX 970 Triple Fan - £188.99 delivered @ OverclockersUK

If you're wanting the best performance for your money, you can't beat a 970 at £180~, it all depends on what you plan to use it for? The jump from £180 to £240 is 25% more and if you're playing at 1080p, there's no reason to spend 25% more on a card.

There are warehouse deals on Amazon for the GTX 970 G1 edition (overclocked, 3 fans, very silent and illuminated windforce logo with a backplate) for £181 with a damaged box but otherwise brand new.

So is the GTX970 still the best bang for bucks these days?
£190 for a GTX 970 isn't bad... but you're just £40 off a 6GB GTX 1060 which clearly outperforms the 970 in every game, and has a lower power consumption to boot. If you're spending nearly £200 on a graphics card anyway, £230 gets you a noticeably faster card and probably a lot more longevity. And you'll make back a tenner on the power savings! (Eventually ;))
You smooth talker you...
I'm swayed by a £50 Amazon gift voucher though, and 1060's are in short supply on there. The 970 is calling me :-)

Surely you can buy anything on amazon with that, it's just like 50 quid cash money.

I Was the biggest nvidia fan have not long brought a R9 Fury got one from amazon warehouse box open return for £240 I have been lucky enough to test it against a GTX 980 and at 1440p the Fury won 90% of the time when both overclocked was a bit closer but the Fury was still faster. My fury runs at 1075 and memory at 525 could go a bit higher then this but happy with this.

This has already been pointed out - the Fury drivers have drastically been improved since it was released. Your Fury benchmarks are release benchmarks. The performance difference is bigger now. We should compare what the 1060 is like in 2016 to what the Fury is like in 2016, not 2015.
Also not a single DX12 benchmark to be found.. ROTR doesn't count.
To quote myself, which you quoted:
For an arbitrary game at arbitrary FPS, a RX 480 might only be able to run it on High but have the textures on Ultra whereas the Fury may be able to run it on Ultra with the textures on High because it's simply a much better card at 1440p+. One of these options will look better than the other.
Replace RX 480 with 1060 and it's still mostly valid. At DX11 the difference is small but at DX12 it's a lot bigger.
Even at DX11, the £290 price point is not too bad. 10% better than a 1060 for about 15% of a price increase. Weigh that against the DX12 boost and you have a viable option...
It's absolutely not 10% better. You keep pretending like these reviews exist showing the Fury has gained performance.
Did you read the 'test setup' page? https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/NVIDIA/GeForce_GTX_1060/7.html
Every card was tested. Every. Card. The Fury was tested against that same setup, with AMD: Crimson 16.4.2 Beta drivers!
So, no, I reject your argument that this was 'release day drivers' with simple 'test setup' page.
Repeating myself... The difference between Overclocking is nearly exactly 10% in favor of the 1060, so at 1440p, the 1060 draws even. At 1080p, the 1060 draws 10% ahead.
15% price increase? 228 versus 289. Again, simple math proves that to be incorrect.
That's 126.7% more! 26.7% increase in cost for *no* increase in performance.
​nate the fury is at least 10% better in dx11 and like 25% in dx12 and vulkan
Got a link to back that up? Because I can't find anything that suggests that. Sounds like you are pulling numbers out of thin air. I've provided links that contradict that in dx11. Specifically, 1080p, latest drivers, the 1060 is dead center tied before OC.

I'm still waiting for you to back up your initial claim of it being better than an R9 Fury...Still waiting on your facts.

Rise of the Tomb Raider isn't a direct X 12 title. Devs patched it to work alongside DX12..Devs patch notes atually say this!!

Ashes is purposesly built for DX12 and uses low level API..Basically how DX12 should be. AMD will obviously be better on this because AMD's drivers have been more focused on DX12 for atleast past 3 years.

You're digging yourself deeper into a hole lad.

Concede that a Fury is a more powerful card at higher resolutions, concede that Fury can overclock too, Concede that by overclocking a 1060/480 will use more power, eat your humble pie and move on.

Nate,
Why such hate for AMD?
I have just trawled few a few of your comments and you are extremely Nvidia biased.
Do you work for Nvidia?http://cdn.mos.cms.futurecdn.net/K7dStKj69am7zs63jC8V4g-650-80.png
A 1060 is essentially getting worse results than a 980.

I'm not going to compare the best R9 Fury with the worst 1060 (Zotac Mini. EVGA is good but must be preordered last I checked). In stock 1060s range around £260. Despite the TDP the Nitro Fury is one of the coolest and quietest cards out there.
Again you're selectively reading my posts, namely:
DX12
DX12
DX12
And DX12.
(and Vulkan)
This is where 10% to Fury comes from. When you account for everything. Not just the games that TPU cherry picked. That site has a known bias towards Nvidia.
Yes the 1060 at least matches the Fury in DX11. But there's more to DX11 now. I'm at work so I won't find you benchmarks to disprove your overall figure but if you care about the truth you'll look for them yourself.
But you are ignoring games where NVIDIA do better anyway.
You said 'Ahh, but ROTR doesn't count!'.
Should we look at AoTS only? You seem to be choosing what is considered "Cherry picking" and what is not.
Should we include Hitman? AOTS? ROTR?
There really isn't that many games to choose from, and excluding ROTR, a mass market game, and including AOTS, a game that is essentially a glorified AMD benchmark, seems odd too, doesn't it?

I don't want to count ROTR as DX12 because it's a DX11 core in a DX12 wrapper. I have no problem including it with other DX11 games though.

AOTS isn't biased towards AMD. You just don't like it because AMD does better in it. AOTS is simply pure DX12 not only in what API it uses but how it's written. There's no specific reason not to include it except that you don't like the results. There hasn't been an under the table handshake between the devs and AMD like Nvidia has done with loads of games.

Hitman is another outlier but even being biased to AMD, AMD still shows more gains in DX12 than Nvidia does. So there's still something legitimate to take away from it.

Contextualize.

I would say so as i have a MSI Gaming r9 280 and i cant max out the graphics setting on most of the 2016 games like i used to back in 2015 (excluding games like GTA 5).All these 1060 cards have very similar performance.

Dunno what everyone thinks of flubit but worked out well for me fast delivery too. Would recommend doing the same with whatever card your interested in see what price it gives ya, obviously most aftermarket gtx 1060s will be better than refference especially if you pay reference price :)

What is pretty annoying with this card is that all through pre order it has had free postage. The moment it comes into stock they smack a tenner postage on it, pretty crappy of them really.
Yeah, I think it stinks. When you are paying this kind of money for the product itself I'm sure they could cover the postage. Like any company they will have deals with at least one if not multiple couriers to get lower rates so the postage won't cost them £10, probably not even £5.
Very high price anyway IMHO for a graphics card that started out as a budget solution, which has now risen to more expensive than the GTX1060. I know it's a special edition and all but still utter price gouging....
​the minimum carriage charged in the UK is actually around 9 pounds with most couriers, anything under this is a discount from the seller

That clearly can't be true


​it is actually, different parts of the cost are absorbed by different businesses, but couriers end up with 9 pounds per parcel.

480 8GB is 21% faster at stock than this at 1080P on average:https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/ASUS/RX_470_STRIX_OC/24.htmlhttps://tpucdn.com/reviews/ASUS/RX_470_STRIX_OC/images/perfrel_1920_1080.png

Digital Foundry does point out that the card it had for review was the MSI model which does have a nice factory OC on it.
Think I'll give PC gaming a miss for another generation. AMDs proper cards no where in sight, and judging by current performance im not holding my breath, nvidia 1060 overpriced by at least £50 and the 1070 £100, the new Intel chips is devils canyon with a fancy name, basically the same chip they designed 5 years ago. I'm desperately hoping the new AMD chips will be their new athlon, but I fear that them being distracted by supplying console manufacturers and playing catch-up with the GPU market means it will be too little too late, even if their fancy presentations show a huge improvement.

im not in the market for a new gfx, but thought id try to flubit, they couldn't get an offer probably because its too new and that amazon were out of stock.
Flubit are useless of late IMHO. About the last five products I gave them they failed to get a better offer on. Used to be possible to get some real bargains on there but I think they have updated the software and now it seems anything that is already discounted on Amazon (even by a small amount) they just auto reject making it rather redundant....

I've only shopped with OCUK twice, so not the most experience with them - I did get my radeon 6950 RMAed and replaced quickly back in the days though, and you can't really blame a company for playing the "price based on supply/demand" game?
tempt
OCUK take money on order and it might take months for the card to be despatched. Check out their forums for horror stories on pre orders.
i have got to say i really dont like the way the company do things, very sly with how they keep upping the prices of these 1060's and 480's all the time, there whole delivery system is backwards aswell, how they can charge 15 quid delivery for something that is over £200, and they want people to join there forum and post 200 times before they can get free delivery, wow
Card is now in stock.
Mini ITX? It's still a dual slot card :(
Good price. Dreaded pre-order :D

What's founders edition?
Mickey Mouse brand? clearly have 0 clue what you are talking about :)
Deal itself is bad.
Would not be risking £400 on some mickey mouse brand. If you're considering this price bracket go EVGA.
Prices for non-Founders in the US are just as inflated over MSRP as they are in the UK.

We're only just starting to see third party cards fall below Founders prices, such as this. That's on either side of the pond. Really they should be at least £50 cheaper than Founders.
Well, Nvidia is selling the Founders Edition at £399.00. They sell it for $449.00 in the US which currently works out as more expensive at £409.09 (VAT Incl.).

£379.99 may be a good deal given the current state of prices, but I'm going to wait for something a bit closer to the prices Nvidia originally stated.

Edit: The prices Nvidia originally stated for the non-Founders editions.

next day delivery, when its in stock.
Cold. As a preorder you can also get an Inno3D one for £129.99
Overclockers have said they expect to receive their stock of the card on the 29th so on Friday. the same day the card you mentioned is also expected to be in stock. The Inno3D card whilst being £10 cheaper and I would like to think the MSI card has a longer warranty and will most likely have better cooling as the board is not a reference design and has two fans.
It's still a perfectly good card, I however would personally prefer the MSI card.
At £238.99 i'd go for an EVGA card but thats personal preference and it carries the same warranty, albeit with a single fan cooler and slightly slower clocks but i take your point.

The manufacturing process for the nm silicon of today is RIDICULOUSLY expensive and wasteful - a lot of the sheet is binned through defect due to the fact there's zero tolerance.
Yields often take time to ramp for any new process but I think Intel had some major problems with 14nm which is possibly one reason why they have delayed the shift to 10nm.

The_Hoff
For consumers mGPU on possibly larger chips is the future and is more economical...
If you mean larger die sizes they are less economical as the yields are worse.
Take a high end Nvidia card which can be as much as 600 mm squared versus say a GTX 1060 which is about a third of that.
As the wafers are circular and the chips are oblong there is a lot of wasted space at the edges and more so with larger chips so you will get more than 3x as many of the smaller chips.
Plus, a defect that ruins one of the bigger chips would also have ruined one of the smaller chips but leaving the other two chips in that same 600mm sq space perfectly fine.
So as a percentage the defects for the larger chip would mean writing off 3x as much wafer space.
That’s one reason why they cost so much also they are 3 times bigger to start with, the development costs per GPU are higher because they are much lower volume which all adds up.
That’s why some of the Titans cost so much especially those on 28nm which were between 550 – 600 mmsq I believe.

The_Hoff
I think given where GPU need to go (the model CPU have) it will be the norm within 2 years for games to support it.
GPUs are already multi-core much more than CPUs are albeit the cores are very basic and specialised.
One reason for moving to multi-chip systems is that there is a limit to how big chips can be using current technology which is near 600mmsq.
Multi socket CPU systems generally scale really well compared to SLI/CF although there is an overhead for inter chip communication which will vary.
2 socket systems tend to have less overhead but 4 socket systems still scale much better than a Quad SLI system ever would.
It will be interesting to see how well DX12 handles multiple GPUs.

The_Hoff
Remember the days of CPU where a new CPU would be 0.1ghz faster? Then we got Dual and Quad cores changing the game, and for not much more cash!
That is what has been happening with GPUs for ages in that often the clock speeds didn’t change much but as the GPUs were built on a smaller node they could use maybe 45% more resources for the same size of GPU die.

Just wait for the AMD 490.
That should offer some challenge.
This is also my hope, however, rumours indicate that the 490 will be a dual GPU card, and I am concerned that dual GPU is no longer the best approach as we move into DX12.
There's some different chatter about, but confirmed that 490 don't be Vega, it'll be Polaris still.
Vega was confirmed for HBM2 and I think that will be the mGPU on a single PCB. I think the 490 will be single GPU higher clocks - but I'm speculating.
Whatever it turns out to be, I'm fairly sure their R&D have considered all options. With DX12/Vulkan developers have much better means of mGPU support, it should actually help SLI/CF setups versus DX11/OGL crappy API.
But they might listen if you email your concerns ;-)
Vega is a family of cards. They won't all be multi-GPU's. We need to see how games use the multi-adapter support in the low-level API's. Even before they weren't fully responsible for implementing it, a lot of games didn't support it at all, and others poor at it. If that doesn't change I can see them just skipping it. We can't be sure yet though.
I know chap. Which is why I also said the 490 was a Polaris architecture.
There is no products within the Vega architecture yet, but the talk is Vega will be designed with multi GPU in mind.
A lead AMD engineer was interviewed and said basically what was happening in GPU tech was the same thing that happened with CPU years ago.
SLI/CF has always been BS, the only useful purpose was compute power for rendering like CAD and modelling, gaming was junk. Besides, AMD did it already with the R9 295X2 and for its time it was (and still is, look at DX12) highly performant, especially for mining and replacing your central heating :-)
They want to sell multiple GPU's. Of course.
Nothing to do with that.

Multiple GPU's, as in 2 480's, etc...
For it to benefit us, games need to support. It's far too early to tell.

Yup, from what I understand the tools are easily available in the latest API to turn the lights on, in a way that wasn't natively available in DX11/GL.

Radeon Fury NITRO 4096MB HBM PCI-Express Graphics Card with Backplate £299.99 @ OCL

Perspective, go check benchs for 290 reference (or 390 and minus 5%), versus Fury Nitro.

In most titles you're talking 10-30fps. That's the difference between playing a game within freesync range at high resolutions, or not, including 4k.

Right now I'm on 1080p but am looking for a 1440p freesync monitor which will effectively buy me another 2 years of gaming - for £150/£180 upgrade cost, that's decent value in my eyes.

DX12/Vulkan should give it a bump further and with Vega rumoured to be using HBM2 I'm hoping that further driver optimisation in favour of the crazy bus capacity will again shove it in the back.

Other reasons are the 290 hits 95 deg (which it's designed to do), blower is loud, uses more electricity... Nitro runs -96mv at a slight OC happily, room is cooler, GPU and VRM is nice and cool, happy days!

Nvidia (how are your shares?), I'd want need to spend more on the card for a top tier one, a premium on g-sync and still get worse DX12/Vulkan performance. Only real benefit is the greater power efficiency. Pointless.

1070 would be a better card, but more than I'm willing to spend given monitor refresh, lack of stock and ludicrous pricing.

Ordered one today, here tomorrow.
If anybody is after a R9 290 drop me a PM. Great for mining/gaming.

The 290, compared to the Fury, is not that far off.

You're going to pull a 20-30% gain tops for a 299.99 card?

Looks like the 290 is going fro about 150 quid, if you're lucky.

Also, a 200 or 182 quid amd 480 that isn't on pre-order for next century? You should post it on hot uk deals. People would be interested.

​Cool thanks for the update. At the moment I'm using a R9 280 and it's great at 2560x1080 but on a 3440x1440 monitor you can notice the upscale in games like rise of the tomb raider. In optimised games like gta v I'm getting an average of 50 fps at 3440x1440 with everything on high except grass. Similar situation in payday 2, wwe 2k16 (60 fps), fifa 15 battlefield 4 and a few others.

The GTX 1070 is a beast at 3440x1440 from the benchmarks I've seen. Getting 60 FPS in latest games with high settings and average 45 fps on ultra or maximum settings in games like witcher 3.

Currently you can get one for £379 as mentioned before but only thing concerning me is how the drivers will mature in the future like 4 years down the line. Nvidia track record with the 780ti is a great example.

Where as AMD GPUs from older generations are still great performers. Problem is AMD haven't given a answer to the GTX 1070 but a RX 490 listed was leaked. I'm hoping it's not a dual GPU as crossfire support is terrible.

I have not used a 1060 and never used a fury but I did have 970 strix overclocked (faster than a stock 1060) and currently use a Fury X (a little faster than a Fury) and can say for sure the 970 comes nowhere near the performance of the Fury x at high res (I game 3440x1440).
So I imagine the same will apply for 1060 v Fury.
If you want to play dx11 games at 1080p for the next couple of years then you may as well get a 1060. Otherwise you would be crazy not to go for the fury for only a little more. For a decent 1060 your looking around £280.
​What games do you play at 3440x1440 and what's your average fps? I've considered the R9 fury x many times for ultrawide 1440p but it's cheaper to get the palit game rock gtx 1070 which is currently £379.

I get a locked 60 fps on probably 95% of games I play at the minute but only because I lower graphics settings if need be to achieve a 60fps lock with no or minimal dips. Realistically if you want to play real graphic intensive games maxed out on ultra at 3440x1440 you need 2 Fury X's in crossfire but I find games still look great at this res with 1 Fury X even with slightly lowered settings.

Recent games I have been playing...

Battlefield 1 beta (high preset) 60fps

Doom (high preset) 60fps

GTA V (mixture of medium and ultra) 60 fps

Metro 2033 (mixture of medium and ultra) 60 fps

Project Cars (mixture of low and high) 55 - 60 fps but looks worse because of some dodgy frame times since the VR update.

ROTR (bad performance no matter what unless I turn off shadows, can only recommend 1080p Ultra with this card unfortunately)

Total War Warhammer (mixture of medium and high) 60fps during battles, 45 - 55 fps during campaign map.

Witcher 3 (mix of medium and ultra) 60fps

Compared to the 970 strix, that card could not even run 2560x1080 decently. Not used a 1070 yet and no idea of its performance at 1440p ultrawide but at that price its definitely worth a look if your OK with Nvidia's extreme planned obsolescence business model.

Let's agree to disagree because irrespective of the oil futures fluctuation, the massive drop in the value of the currency effects the price of EVERYTHING.
I didn't see that we had been disagreeing as I was just pointing out that oil and other traded commodities are more complex with regard pricing fluctuations. RAM is also a traded commodity which is why its pricing fluctuates in ways that most other PC components don't.
But I do now disagree when you say that EVERYTHING is now affected by the value of the pound dropping as it doesn't necessarily impact goods which aren't imported.

But goods are also exported.

Of course the value of the pound versus the dollar impacts all pricing.

The price of delivering goods goes up, the price to purchase imported goods goes up, if your item has ANY gas involved in manufacture (plastic) transport (oil) or pretty much anything... It will absolutely be impacted by the value of the pound.

It may be a smaller impact, but certainly an impact.

"Student discount plus a few other things.
A parcel from a mate marked as a gift and from a low risk country is unlikely to gather and kind of attention or suspicion unless it's sent by an overnight insured courier"
Not able to share? How do you get a student discount on a gtx 1070? I'm not sure the US is low risk but he said he'd be willing to do it. I'm a college student but not uni.
US is definitely a low risk country when it comes to the UK post office. Unless your mail is scanned and looks like it might contain cash, narcotics or weapons then nobody at Mount Pleasant is going to care.
For Amazon student discount you just need an NUS Extra card which, as a college student, you should be eligible for. It would get you 5% off a GPU.

I'm guessing the other strings are someone working at Amazon with a staff discount.

My friend would help but I'm not sure what to fill in on the forms like value and such, can you pm me with any advice for importing? He's a bit of an **** and joked about wrapping it in EU flag paper, but I don't think my post would get scanned.

EVGA have international warranty too, so I'd get one of those, although Zotac have 5 years which is nice.

That's a lot to push. I'm surprised you've stuck with a 770 for so long on this monitor tbh. A 1080 is probably better for you.
Only playing RO2 at present, and it runs ok. Not bought any newer titles due to lack of graphic power. I've hung on a bit as even the 980ti didn't seem capable.
I have the same resolution display and a 980ti. Runs everything perfectly. Getting 80-110 fps in Doom. Over 100 in Bioshock Infinite and Titanfall. Need to try some others but amazing so far.
The 980ti sits right between the 1070 & 1080.
I can't believe you have a 770 running that display. I usually upgrade both monitor and gpu at the same time if required.

It's the best you can buy right now. If you can afford the insane cost then certainly go for it. It's amazing. Yeah. I was just going by my card against reviews. A stock reference scenario puts the 1070 ahead.
Although I really hate that review. The graphs have no specific figures on them. Incredibly annoying.

Aftermarket 980Ti vs aftermarket 1070 is an awkward comparison because Pascal cards can't really be overclocked.

Do you find yourself asking "should I have just bit the bullet on the 1080?"

No. For what little extra performance it would have given me at 2k, I don't think a 500-600 quid purchase is justified.

I'd rather just disable AA and get the frames up that way if I really have to. It is pretty much everything out though apart from GTA V. With Hairworks off and everything else maxed in The Witcher 3 I get 60-80fps at 1440p whereas my 970 never would have come close to that.
