I have put together 18 systems this year for my office. 10 with EVGA GTX 1070 SC and 8 with Gigabyte GTX 1080 Windforce. I am by no means an expert and only ran two different free bench mark programs but found my systems running the 1070 ran better than the 1080...
All machines on MSI z270 M3 boards, i7 7700K, 32gb G.Skills Ripjaws, and Samsung Evo 850 500GB SSD.
GTX 1070 Nova bench average graphics score: 1891
GTX 1080 Nova bench average graphics score: 1467
We are a engineering shop and live on Autocad so I also used Cadalyst Systems Benchmark
GTX 1070 Cadalyst Systems Benchmark 3D index: 1962, 2D Index: 549
GTX 1080 Cadalyst Systems Benchmark 3D index: 2037, 2D Index: 526
I used the same system for the test, did a clean install of the most current driver after GPU swap.... Not sure why the Nova Bench scores for the 1080 are so bad and I would have not expected the Cadalyst Systems Benchmark to be a dead heat. Anyone have thoughts on this? What am I missing here!?
Thanks in advance!
