Default First GTX 1170 benchmarks

July 26th, 2018, 02:55
I think over the last 20 years I've realized one very rarely "wins" the price game with technology purchases. I end up just biting the bullet and buying the best deal I can find for the item I've decided on.

How about all games have a single huge lootbox you pay for up front that contains all the options, items, skins, unlocks etc? I'd pay for that!!

I almost never buy top of the line items because i figure i can buy the next lower every other generation for the price of the highest. Could never have seen myself buying a 1080 and the 1070 was around $300 when i purchased it. The only reason the 1170 caught my attention is that it is nearly 2x the 1070 and if i can find one for around $300 i might bite but as I said it has to be a mini to fit in my case.

Am I the only one who's confused by that?

No

But, like Wisdom, I've learned that there really is no ideal time to buy upgrades. It all depends on what you want and how much money you have. Buying now or later is almost always a choice with similar consequences in terms of advantages and disadvantages - as long as you can actually afford it.

You can buy the 780ti or wait a year for the 970 or another for the 1060 and get the same performance at a lower price in the form of a "new" card.

Thing is, if you don't buy high end you never get to experience high end.

What he said; I aim for 'good enough' today because when tomorrow arrives it will just be cheaper to buy the lower end item which is faster than the today's fastest at a lower price than yesterday fastest. However you have to take things with a grain of salt I don't 'game' on tv or large screens. I game on monitors - and I'm not sensitive to fps being 45 or 30 - so I have no desire for 120; screen tearing just doesn't bother me and i just want the fps fast enough that the motion doesn't stutter or hinder game play (after all how many movies run at 60fps or 120fps). Anyway that's just me. It is the same with i5 vs i7; I almost never buy i7 because the perf gain vs the $$ is not cost effective for myself (games are generally not cpu bound). I do realize that some people do compute intensive applications and so it makes sense for them to get an i7. The only area I stay near the top of the curve are ssd since hd are very slow for random access but if you are into moving large chunks of data sequentially then hd are the way to go.

Interesting for people in the UK potentially

Eurogamer.net: Nvidia offers free SSDs with GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1060 graphics cards.

It does look as an awsome deal: "GTX 1060 (6Gb) comes with a 240GB Kingston A400 SSD". Sadly I don't live in UK and don't need a new GPU.
