    I presumed he was referring to price after 20% ebay discount

    aaah OK,

    Yeah I do not understand these cards, giving up so much space to tensor cores but without enough grunt to do raytracing anyway.
    Maybe it's all about DLSS? Can't wait to see that in the real world to see just how bad things are for the 20x0 series cards.

    Just been looking at the EVGA 2070 Black, and it looks like it's an ITX sized card with an oversized cooler on top. If EK or one of the other watercooling companies offer a block for it, could be a really good option for us ITX people

    You can see the shot from behind that the pcb is quite short, and also the entire pcb is only as high as the pcie slot mounting, thus giving a bit of extra leeway in overall height as well.

    A number of factors:
    The Zotac 1080 Ti Arctic Storm was originally what I wanted to get for my system, however it is too tall to fit into an NCase M1. Due to my usage case, I need a short card, both in terms of length and height, in order to fit it into my case and integrate it into a watercooling loop. From my measurements, even the Air Cooled Zotac 1080 Ti Mini with an Alphacool block would be stretching it, mostly on the power input on that one though.

    If I can get an EVGA card with a full cover block, I would much prefer that option, and since the Black is the only ITX sized board amongst all their 20 series cards that I've found so far, that combined with a waterblock would be a good compromise between performance, price and cooling capability.

    LOL, ray tracing is the least of my concerns, I just want decent graphics power in the smallest possible physical package, and preferably with lowish power usage.... Not much to ask for is it??!! :D

    I dunno about 2070 and Raytracing..DLSS sure.. and DLSS is only at 4k atm. So 1080Ti is super good for 1440p. But at 4k might as well buy 2080Ti.
