what video card would give me at LEAST a 25% boost in FPS over my 1070 ?
That’s assuming the rest of your computer isn’t holding back the 1070 already. Also depends on your games resolution and what games you are playing.
Basically that, only the 1080 Ti and Titan XP/Z would give you that much of a boost in today's market.
I would personally suggest holding off until Nvidia provides concrete information on the next-generation GPUs though.
i5-6600k @ 5ghz
ram ddr4 @ 3200 16gb
1080 ti or bust. But if you are at 60hz, I wouldn't bother.
Are you Freesync or 60Hz?
With that rig, I imagine the 1070's pushing FPS just fine for now. (Might be worth waiting for the next gen.)
Looks good. A 1080ti would be the next step up. Should be about 25% faster if not a little more.
looks like I need to wait for the 1170
That will basically perform like a 1080 ti.
Consider that you only have 4 threads, and some games are pushing more threads now.
Yeah, if you're looking for more than 60fps, you should consider a CPU and GPU upgrade.
You can reuse your DDR4, so your only cost would be a motherboard and CPU.
Use this review to see how much your performance could be CPU-limited. Compare your i5 6600k to i5 7600k:
If you're still seeing slowdowns when you crank down a few settings, then you're probably CPU-limited.
EDIT: overclocked should be just fine then.
It's more like 40-50% faster in practically every single game when running at 1440p and UHD. Only a few games that that are more cpu-heavy and are run at lower resolutions will bring that gap down to about 30%.
