    I have the chance to swap mu current gpu and cant decide if I should.

    Currently I have a GTX 1070 that I got a few years ago when they first came out but I have the chance to swap it for a gtx 2060 super. Its located in my gaming rig that I also use to make flying video's, bit of photoshopping, watching movies etc etc, usual stuff.

    Would you swap? Should I swap?

    Wait, a straight swap? Yes!

    Part-ex plus cash? Depends how much. The 1070 is a good card, but how long before they start dropping games optimisations from the driver pack for the 10 series?

    yep, straight swap.. its now sat in my rig.

    it did force me to finally update to W10 as well so I could install dx12 and use raytracing...... such is life though. lol
