3 years ago bought a gtx 970
3 years later 1000 Series is already popular
Now im stuck with this piece of shit which Im pretty sure is outran by the 1060

Do you need an upgrade? I have a 970 and it handles everything I throw at it in 1080p.

Robert Brown

Same. OP is a fag.

Jack Morgan

A 970 should handle 1440p just fine, if you choose medium settings on games like Witcher 3. On normie games, you can probably still max out settings on 1440p.

Only in >3.5GB titles. Or leather jacket man already started to gimp it with drivers. 970 more or less equal to 1060.

bought a prebuilt for 500€
came with a radeon hd 4650 1 niggabyte
never upgraded since
I have 650€ saved. Planing on making a rig this summer after a summer job

Honestly don't know was already planning to sell my gpu along time ago when the 1000 series came out. But I get fucked in FPS most of the time I play in 1080p. Maybe I just have a shit setup

You're retarded. The 1060 is and always has been faster than the 970. It's equivalent to a 980, not a 970.

Amd GPU's are good? Never really took them into mind, no offense. Heard some positive reviews about RX series however.

Jose Watson

Because 970 shits itslef in half of those games because of 3.5GB, which makes it look worse.

4 years ago
bought an r9 290
at least high settings on AAA titles at 1440p and even can run my racing sims with the oculus at 90+fps steady

I'd like an upgrade but I can hold out a while

Drivers are solid on windows. There are also open source drivers for them on Linux (no such thing for nvidia).

As far as performance, they are outpaced by Nvidia but generally offer the same processing power for less money

How does it compare to modern AMD GPUs?

Henry Davis

I've got a GTX680 and it still runs most games fine, just limited by 2GB of Vram

Adrian Adams

You're utterly delusional. The 970 is slower even in games that use way under 3.5GB VRAM. The Witcher 3 uses ~2GB VRAM at 1080p at the 1060 is still 12% faster. Or fucking WoW, which uses well under 2GB and the 1060 is 15% faster. Both results within a couple of percent of the averaged numbers. And these are numbers from the 1060's launch, so driver gimping isn't an option.

There's nothing worse than some faggot with an old card who can't accept that it doesn't match a newer one because it's just fucking slower, rather than some grand conspiracy. You're essentially trying to claim that there's no performance difference between a 970 and a 980. There always was, even if the price jump didn't justify it.

It's suffering.

It doesn't really have an equivalent in AMD's current lineup. It's significantly faster than an RX 560 and significantly slower than an RX 570.

No SSD only 1 terrabyte 7200 RPM, 1600 MHz 8GB ram stick. Mobo is meh ASRock Z97 as for CPU cooler I have a Hyper 212. I probably should've invested into more Hard drive space, im currently fucked right now, maybe later I might end up buying another terrabyte.

600 series comes out
buy a 670
forward several years to now
no money for GPU
still using 670
works well enough to play through all the older games I bought on steam over the years like a retard.
I swear I will get a job soon.... then I will surely finally be able to get some new hardware...
I live in constant fear of shit failing, because I don't have the money to replace anything anymore.

Played the witcher 3 fine at high details and near 60 fps when i was sick last year, so still seems good enough for me.

We're all gonna make it bro, I've got a 680 and it still plays most things fine including the current Hitman. With the retarded prices theres no incentive to upgrade even if you can afford it.

That's some slow as snails RAM. An SSD also helps a ton and I recommend that you get one for your next built, if only to put your OS on it. The difference is quite noticeable.

Brayden Reyes

if you aim for 60 fps (like 99.9999% of the gamers) then it is more than enough.

Is that an AMD card? Could you explain how their naming system works to me? I don't get it like I do with the gtx cards.

They are good, for sure. Also, as another user said, AMD on Linux is very stable and has great support. The drivers on Linux are pretty good and you get good performance out of it, near that of Window's Crimson drivers.

I'm buying AMD just because I'll be dual booting Linux and the RX 580 is pretty much a GTX 1060, but with more VRAM and slightly better in some games.

this is the generation
870
this is the model the higher the number the better
this are old though, the newer ones follow the RX5xx naming scheme where RX580 is the most powerful and i think RX550 or something are the weakest. There is also the high end Vega cards with only two models Vega 56 and Vega 64 with Vega 64 being the most powerful AMD card in the market right now.

be me
bought a 7970 7 years ago
Still feel no need to upgrade until I move to 1440p or 4k HDR high refresh rate, but no truly great monitors are for sale.

Bought a shitty Nvidia GPU a few years ago
already feel the need to upgrade
How do you guys end up in this cycle? I don't see people with AMD GPUs feeling the same unless they got like a cheap 260 knowing they'll need to upgrade sooner rather than later.

7970 is the best consumer GPU ever made relative to the time it was released, but Tonga, Tahiti, and Polaris since were just been relative minor upgrades for 5 years running.

Between 560 and 570.

He's right, though. Even when games use under 3.5GB VRAM, the 970 is still pretty slow relative to the cost and time it came out. It's compute performance is around that of a 7970 despite coming out much later, and games heavily use compute for more complex shaders now days.
