    I am frustrated by the lack of dual slot cooler designs! Having all of them as giant triple slot behemoths is concerning... As someone with a case that only supports dual slot cards it makes my life more difficult as I probably have to pay considerably more for the founders card

    can't wait to see what it can do. nVidia spent a bit longer developing this because let's face it they aren't being touched by AMD atm so it will be cool to see it unleashed properly.

    Was hoping for a bigger splash than this, the presentation didn't blow me away.

    I reckon $1600-1750 is where we'll see the bottom end of AIB cards. But yeah. Not cheap!

    according to the video above from gamersnexus:
    Gigabyte Windforce OC $1,169.99
    Gigabyte Gaming OC $1,199.99

    so the prices should/will be same or even more expensive with the likes of MSI Gaming X or EVGA FTW

    I'm waiting to see what the bottom end turbo models cost... I mean I'm gonna wait a bit anyway since buying GPU's at launch is typically not always the best idea, with the exception being Vega 64 since it took like 6 months to return to launch price xD

    Just keep in mind, those base level AIB models will most likely run the "reference clock speeds" rather than the "founders OC clock speeds" which are +100Mhz

    I wonder if 60w is enough to support a 4k144 monitor in the future. Would buy both a monitor and new gpu solely for the convenience of one less cable

    I don't think any gamer could justify spending that on a GPU

    I'm not planning on overclocking in my system and would prefer lower power draw preferably.

    I wonder how the 8gb gddr6 2080 will compare to the 11gb gddr5x 1080ti

    Does anyone remember when dropping $500 on a gpu was considered bat-shit insane, and in the realms of hard-core e-peen seeking nerds?

    No one? Get off my goddamn lawn!

    I received my pre-order email this morning. That price is very steep, I'm glad that I'm not aiming for a complete rebuild and probably won't be looking for one for at least two years as my PC is still going very nicely. I'm very keen on what this can do though, I am betting it won't be too much over what's currently on offer, perhaps no more than 20% improvement. I am definitely looking forward for a 4K @ easy over 100fps card though (not some POS buggy unrefined game or CS:GO), which will probably be a couple more generations from now I predict.

    yeah i miss $2-300 being somewhere you could get good mid-range performance.

    I am most interested in seeing how a 2070 compares to a 1080. Being single 8-pin it should maintain low power draw, but if it gives 1080ti performance I am more interested in that than $1800 on some I will get for $1200 in a year

    Perhaps consider a new case or water cooling?

    Yep, unless there's a big drop in price I'm not buying this is just getting silly. Not like they even have more VRAM.

    One other interesting thing to note the 2080 ti confirmed has tensor cores, ie it looks like they haven't done a GP102 style design for maximum traditional gaming performance (and no pro features), instead you're getting the biggest 754mm die that has a lot of stuff that doesn't matter for traditional gaming. That might explain the high prices essentially over half the silicon (RTX + tensor cores) is only going to be used in ray tracing.

    I doubt a 2070 will be close to a 1080 ti in non ray tracing games, it's only 7.5 tflops of fp32 (1080 ti is 11.4 for reference), it'll be around 1080 performance.
