I currently have a 3070, it’s not the greatest one out there so I’m thinking to upgrade to a 3080ti. Do you think I would see a difference or should I look into any of the new amd card?

Need to know full system specifications along with power supply and what monitor resolution you use etc.

240hz 1440p Yes I would say if you can sell the RTX 3070 a 3080ti is worth the upgrade.

Not too bad right now actually.

Cheapest 3080Ti is $880, cheapest 3080 12GB is $770 (Actually the cheapest 3080 at the moment)

But generally it is about $150 more for the 3080Ti right now.

Yea $110 for like 4fps on average more performance, is simply not worth it. I have seen 6900xt, as low as $730, recently. If Ray tracing isn't a concern, it might be worth considering, as well.

I actually found a gigabyte Radeon 6900xt, 2285 mhz boost clock 5120 stream processors 16000mhz memory clock 16gb memory size gddr6 card for 729.99 on Newegg thinking about going with that. Would that be a decent jump from the 3070?

Do you really run it with 4000 Mhz?

For best performance fclk should have have the ram-speed to run in synchronouse mode. That means, for 4000 Mhz fclk should be 2000 Mhz, and sorry, but I do not beleive that.

For 3xxx-series the official limit is 3200, on most motherboards 3600 is possible ( depending on 2 or 4 ram sticks), very few can reach 3800 with flck synchron with half the ram-speed.

It will be better to lower ram-speed to 3600 and use flck of 1800 and optimize the subtimings.

So I went with the Radeon 6900xt but I just realized the power connection for it has 3, 8 pin connectors but my wire only has 2. What do I have to do order a new cable?
