Get a 4gb GTX 970 or wait for 8gb for 1080p?

Well, that's still not perfectly representative, as it's a synthetic benchmark.

I think it'd be better to check out GPU performance charts at TechPowerUp - it's far from ideal, but at least they test the performance in games, not benchmarks.

Granted, but the particular combinations of certain driver versions with certain GPUs produce anomalous results in gaming.

Synthetic benchmarks, whilst far from perfect, are fairly representative of real-world performance.

Ideally, look at both IMO ;)

I wonder if synthetic benchmarks correspond with GFLOPS?

 

 

Some games do better on Radeon, other games do better on GeForce. I don't know if GTA games tend to do better on one of these.

Synthetic benchmarks simulate various different kinds of workload. They don't really correspond with GFLOPS, which are static values based on the maximum possible processing performance at factory-set clock speeds, especially when you start tweaking stuff like clock and memory speeds.

 

For instance, my GTX680 has a stated floating-point performance by NVidia of 3,090 GFLOPS, compared to a floating-point performance of 3,213 GFLOPS for a GTX770. I'm running a mild overclock (on top of a not-so-mild factory overclock), but my PassMark score is 6,418 as opposed to an average PassMark of 6,160 for GTX770s. Then again, the average PassMark score for a GTX680 is only 5,716, so in synthetic benchmarks I'm a little over 10% faster than an average GTX680- but in the "real world"- I.E gaming- I don't see a corresponding 10% higher frame rate. Closer 3%.

I got my GTX 670 2GB a couple of years back and it feels outdated already. Really want to upgrade to a 970 for GTA V. i5 2500k still running like a steam train after all these years now.

I've only had my 680 for about two years- possibly a little less actually- and I'm seriously considering a 970. Something like a 40% increase in performance for what, maybe £150 after selling my old bits? Let's see how the Christmas period treats me.

 

My Vishera FX chip is more than two years old and benches round about the same as a 4770S or Xeon E5 1620 v3. It cost me all of £100 when I bought it, there's still masses of overhead for further overclocking, and it keeps my office nice and warm too.

 

With a reasonably powerful CPU of any kind, additional processor spend just becomes diminishing returns.

It's crazy. Wonder how much you could get for selling a 670 second hand? Want a few bits for Christmas (too much!) so a graphics card is quite down the list, but once my pay check for December comes in and I pay off my holiday I can spoil myself.

eBay says about £120 for a 670.
