I for one know how to utilize a 1080ti over 970 specifically for Witcher 3.

HAIRWORKS.

Yes, it's resource-intense. Yes, it kills a lot of FPS.

You can turn everything to ultra AND turn on Hairworks, and still get fluid 1440p/60fps. And since I often come across furry beasts in my travels, it's actually more immersive to have global Hairworks on.

Or play at 144 fps.

really? sorry to hear man. i just got my 1080ti ftw 3 yesterday and i put gta 5 to max setting / 1440p and was so excited.. it looked so amazing and the i could see the entire city and hundreds and hundreds of cars being driven throughout the city. was very cool. im loving my 1080ti.

my eyes cant tell a diff beteen 1440p and 4k so i just do 1440p so i can max settings and get higher fps.

I don't think those are good games to compare graphic cards with.

The witcher 3 is optimized extremely well with a 970, and I remember playing it maxed out on that card with everything enabled but hair fx except for geralt.

Battlefront looks extremely well on console, so I don't believe pc can enhance it all that much.

Future games should be a more telling difference if you compare. Like my old 670 makes witcher 2 look amazing and 970 doesn't change it much. Yet if I do the same on witcher 3, it's night and day.

You know how there's bottlenecking in computer hardware? Your monitor is the bottleneck.

My buddy has the same problem. He splurged hard on the computer with a 1080ti card (one of those ibuypowers) but didn't get a new monitor, so he's been riding on a 1080p he's been using for years (so 60hz) and he was complaining about how little of a difference it was. Had him bring it over and plugged it into a 1440 and he was like "oh".
