All the discussions you see comparing cards are about things like rendering times and the like.
I'm aware that there's not much in it between these 2 cards for that but I cant help wondering if the extra 4gb of memory helps with playing-back and rendering cuda effects in 4k?
I've not been able to figure out whether my system issues (black screening, failed GPU renders, constantly having to clear the media cache etc) is down to my gtx970 and will be helped by a new GPU. I'd love to get some input before dropping $1000!
As a matter of fact, even a reference-clocked GTX 1060 6GB card equals or beats a GTX 970 SC (SuperClocked) card. However, you might want to step up to at least a GTX 1070 in order for the upgrade to be worth the cost.
well I just bought a gtx1080ti. If it doesn't help I'll sell it. I do a lot of timelapse - 7-8K sometimes, it makes premiere wimper. I'm hoping the 11gb will help a bit with that, and that it'll help with my 4k footage with effects. I'll report back just in case anyone else is wondering about the same thing.
