Just a random question. What do you think is the most underrated gpu?
The equivalent of 3070 is 2080 Ti and the equivalent of 2080 is almost the 1080 Ti.1080, and 1080 TI's They are already 4+ years old but they are still good enough for most games and they are prices are very good on the used market you can get a 1080 ti for 400-500$ on the used market right now and they are equivalent to a card like an RTX 3070, pretty good cards till this day.
I got the 980 and a 4790K in 2014 and just replaced the 980 this year so it lasted a long time for a video card.Off the top of my head, I think GTX 980 from an engineering standpoint. This was at a point when GPUs were still on 28nm and the next process node wasn't ready yet. However, NVIDIA managed to make a GPU that checks off all the marks that a next-generation GPU should do (i.e., do things the last gen did, but better), all while doing it on the same process node as the previous generation.
Honestly I think they're fine for RT stuff. It really just depends on who implemented it. After all, if id Tech 6 can get a RTX 2060 Super to run a game with RT enabled at 1440p, mostly max settings, and still get 60 FPS average, anyone else can.The RTX 2000 series GPUs (from the 2060 on up).
Sure, they're a gen old already. Sure, they're NOT very good at ray tracing. But they're probably good enough for 99.9% of your games at high/max settings.
That put it at about GTX 1070 performance while using only slightly more power than the GTX 1070. But, it was a victim of two things:Using the secondary BIOS with a power limit reduced by 25% gets us 159.4W and 32.7 FPS. Compared to the stock settings, just 71.6% of the power consumption serves up 89% of the gaming performance.
thats quite a broad question. from a legacy standpoint. im not up to date on everything past the nvidia 20xx series but i can tell to the rx5xx and 9xx series are still serving well in todays games. i think the gtx970 is still an underrated card.Just a random question.
