    Re: Steam survey reveals why Nvidia wants GTX 10 owners to upgrade

    So the top cards are the 1060, 1050ti and 1050. With TDPs of 120W, 75W and 75W respectively.

    Exactly which of the 30xx series are 'safe' to upgrade to, given the wattages so far have been 350W, 320W and 220W?

    Depends on your power supply.

    Still waiting for a 3060 card then looking at this, should be more at where people are looking given Steam info no?

    But what about us GTX 9x users? Are we safe, yet?

    So how does Jensen know about everyone's power supply?

    Re: Steam survey reveals why Nvidia wants GTX 10 owners to upgrade

    It's not just the GPU and a possible a PSU for 10x0 series owners. The steam survey also says the dominant CPU is 4 cores and the dominant resolution is 1920x1080.

    So for many 10x0 owners, it's going to be far more than just a GPU upgrade if they want a 3070/3080.

    Re: Steam survey reveals why Nvidia wants GTX 10 owners to upgrade

    I think the key info was that two-thirds of the users are using 1920x1080 screens.
    Do they really need anything better than 1060/rx580?

    Only when most of the users go for 4K screens or ultra-wide 1440p, they will see the need for new GPUs.
    Until then, they are all good.

    This is the main reason.
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    I'm looking at a 3xxx card (or Navi depending on where they sit price/performance/spec) and a new monitor, not because I want to go over 1920x1080, but because I want a higher refresh rate..

    Re: Steam survey reveals why Nvidia wants GTX 10 owners to upgrade

    Personally I am looking at the 3070 to replace my 5700.
    Haven’t seen anything from AMD that makes me think it is worth waiting for the new cards.
    Currently running with a Ryzen 3600 and the Radeon 5700. Was hoping the red team would have something special to take nvidia down a peg like the Ryzen chips did Intel.
    Not an AMD Fanboy just someone that sees the value of viable competition over token.

    The new cards haven't even been announced yet so you can't have seen anything

    I'm waiting for the new cards to drop and for people to shift their 10 series cards for cheap.

    I'm thinking 20 series, depending on what Navi and the 3060/3070 look like when they're actually available..

    You've got less than a month or two to wait and AMD has been very careful with leaks. You haven't seen anything because they've made sure not to.

    Is your 5700 stopping you from doing anything right now?

    Seems a bit silly...
