ASUS Strix GTX 1070 Ti Review

Total War : Warhammer

Total Warhammer - we don't care, that's a better name - is sorted in our graph by the 1080P results, but as you can see the performance is extremely variable despite this being a fixed benchmark. Nonetheless the Strix continues to better its nVidia counterpart.

I feel like there's something wrong here. In multiple benchmarks (Hitman, GOW4, Ashes) the 1070Ti Strix is beating the 1080 Strix. How can that be? I think you might need to retest some of these as something is obviously weird.Quote

Drivers maybe. When the 1080 came out it wasn't that hot in DX12. You also need to remember, the 1080 has been out for a long time now, and drivers will absolutely no doubt have improved since.

Well, unless Tom tested them all again for the review.Quote

This is a big issue with video card benchmarks in my opinion. Instead of having the most up-to-date information for each review (within reason), we have to cross-reference the data with another review of a more up-to-date card. So in this case I'm using Guru3D's review of the 1070Ti. I've gone to the Hitman benchmark, and instead of using their supplied graphs, I provide my own. As in, I take a more recent GTX 1080 review posted by them a couple of months ago and compared the two cards with that data rather than the original 1080 review from mid-2016. At 1440p, the 1070Ti scored 100 FPS in Hitman, while the 1080 scored 114 FPS. That's more indicative of what most people should be seeing. I did the same with GOW4 and the 1080 was 13% faster than the 1070Ti. Again, a more expected and accurate result.Quote

Yeah it's kinda sucky but I can totally understand it. First you would need to basically keep every single card you review (most go on to other reviewers) and then you would need to test every single one again and again.

I didn't expect the Ti to beat the 1080. We all knew it wouldn't really. It was just to make the higher mid range cheaper. The 1070 IMO is starting to creak and show its age now, not being any faster than the old gen high end. We needed something just that bit better.

Tis a good release by Nvidia, I just hope the prices are right.Quote
