    Hello,

    What gpu should I buy.
    I still have a i5 3570-k CPU with a GTX 680.

    So I was thinking I would buy a GTX 1070 instead of a GTX 1080(as its only 5% faster) but saves me 100€, which I can save up for a new CPU(ryzen 1800) and motherboard. But I read that a gtx 970 has more CUDA cores. So Im pretty lost atm.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    another way to save money is to get a ryzen 1700 instead of the 1800x. it can overclock to almost the same speed.

    Resolve with the 1070 performs very well, although there is a gain to be had with the 1080. For most uses the 1070 will serve you well: just think, it's as good as a hundred-thousand dollar system of just a few years ago. I wouldn't recommend the Maxwell cards, they run notably hotter, and draw more power.

    Real-world "Standard Candle" tests on a MacBook Pro with Resolve 14 public beta and the GPU over Thunderbolt 3 (meaning an internal card should perform at least as well if not a little better):

    1070 (8GB)
    9x blur: 59 fps
    18x blur: 31 fps
    30x blur: 18 fps
    66x blur: 8 fps
    1x TNR: 56 fps
    2x TNR: 33 fps
    4x TNR: 18 fps
    6x TNR: 12 fps

    1080 (8GB)
    9x blur: 59 fps
    18x blur: 39 fps
    30x blur: 24 fps
    66x blur: 11 fps
    1x TNR: 59 fps
    2x TNR: 38 fps
    4x TNR: 20 fps
    6x TNR: 14 fps

    I have the 1060 superclocked. It works well with resolve and 4k raw footage. It starts to bog down a bit with multiple power windows and NR.

    Well the 1070 and 1080's will come down in price again the next weeks. As AMD vega is beeing released. which outperforms the gtx 1080 for crypto mining at much lower price cost. So a lot of miners will be selling their 1070's for AMD vega's. As the same miners are responsible for the price increase of the GPU's in the first place.
