    My guts tell me that the 2080ti may be up to 40% faster in some areas where optimisation is present, personally I can’t justify the $2000+ price (you are right, add tax and shit and its over) but work has 4 of these cards on order so it will be fun playing with them in mine and my work colleagues workstations.

    same as card + ek waterblock. Custom cards suck if you plan on WC ing. They dont do anything better.. Silicon lottery is all that matters. I have also heard people say that Nvidia is binning 20 series Founders cards.

    But AMD have stated they aren't interested in top tier gaming cards. They don't even want to try.

    No fucking way am I paying 2 grand for a GPU. Please guys, go for it though. If they sell well, and you all like them, I can hope for a price drop on a 1080/Ti.

    lol its barely 60-80fps in 4k for 2000+ doesnt seem worth it when 4k screens are like 500-1000 max

    just a bunch of workstation cut down quadro rtx with higher clocks, at least when pascal did this it was good in games and the 1080ti aging like wine for 1/4 of the price

    To be fair I would put the Ti on or just above that 4k line.

    No NVIDIA are now officially claiming 1080Ti isn't good enough for 4k 60FPS because otherwise people will buy those. Gotta move 2080's.
    Just more bullshit NVIDIA graphs that don't show any factual benchmarks at all..

    Damn I'm ready for an upgrade and I was ready to pay up to $1,500...

    Those cards sure do have a beautifully awesome looking shell on the outside though.

    I will wait until I find one that I can pick up for $1.5k, I need to upgrade but I'm not in a rush as Cyberpunk 2077 doesn't come out for some time.

    Is there a similar chart for the pre-1080-card to 1080-card release?

    Also, ~40% increase in FPS... not shabby (for 1080ti to 2080ti).

    did you not see the 80% price increase and 7-20% perf/dollar decrease?

    I'm looking at either a 1080ti or 2080 depending on price. If I can get a 1080ti sub $1000 or potentially $900 on clearance it might be the better buy in terms of value.

    where do these charts even come from... considering no actual official reviews have been released?

    LOL it's from Nvidia, so it's BS.
    Even their cherry picked and most likely skewed in house chart shows 5FPS gains in some games 2080 over 1080Ti.. That's a fail.

    I did, but didn't really care. I asked for a comparable table from the time the 1080ti was released so that others can see this isn't unique.

    No , not exactly, but sticking with USD, the 1080ti was launched at $699, and the 1080 dropped to $499 from $599

    This made the 1080ti:

    40% more expensive than the reduced 1080 price
    16% more expensive than the launch 1080 price
    ~35% faster

    so was significantly better perf/$ than a 1080 was a year before.

    However, moving forward to this release:

    2080ti is:
    71% more expensive than launch (and current) 1080ti RRP
    Suposedly 40% faster (nvidia numbers)


    2080 ($799) is:
    14% more expensive than 1080ti
    supposedly ~12% faster


    Seems pretty unique to me in regards to raw rendering power..

    I don't know why people are trying to see this any other way, instead of just accepting you're paying for the new hardware (RT and Tensor cores). there's no way to get around this trying to justify there value based on raw performance currently.

    Umm.. the 1080 and 1080ti are from the same gen... shouldn't you be comparing the 1080ti to the gen prior?

    Nobody buying 'the newest thing' thinks they are getting a good deal. I'm kind of confused why people use the "ermergerd waaaai is something so new so expensive?!" argument against? :confused:

    I didn't compare to the previous Gen (Maxwell) because unlike this time around, the ti wasn't released alongside. Comparing 1080ti vs 980ti wouldn't help the case though - They launched at the same price and were miles apart performance wise.. and that's kind of the point here - there's some expectation that you'll get better performance/$ moving to a new generation. Otherwise, we'd be paying $10'000s for GPU's since they're 100 times more powerful than they were in, say the early 2000's

    Perhaps in this case, viewing the new Ti' as a "Titan" would be a better way to justify it's price.. That doesn't help the 2080 though. And it doesn't help those who previously ignored titan's and bought the Ti's that followed
