    I didn’t buy in on 20 series. My 1080Tis are sufficient for now and realtime raytracing wasn’t a compelling proposition given the cost of upgrade for my rigs.

    Saying that, I have zero doubt raytracing IS the path forward for lighting and shadows in games. Anyone on this board who prefers to have ermagherd useless framerates in rasterisation instead is missing the point. No, I don’t like playing slideshows, but I do see immense benefits when this is adopted across the board in hardware and software.

    Call yourselves enthusiasts eh? Behave like it !

    Reading the articles that are reporting on the alleged specs of the coming 30xx/ampere series GPU's, its mentioned that pricing will be comparable to 20xx equivalents in order to attract more gamers to RT capable/inclusive hw and sw(games).

    Something that hints that gamers are looking for a little more on the game side, rather than continually funding upgrades to hw to run the eye candy in tech demo titles(games).
    That also suggests that gamers are not gravitating towards RTing in number, or as quick as nVidia would like.

    With discounting starting to appear on the 20xx cards, we may be seeing 30xx cards sooner than later.

    Shit like this gets planned months if not years in advance. The 2080ti got launched in September 2018, there's been over a year for Nvidia to come up with this special non-purchasable edition before the intended launch date of April which I assume they've kept to the original timeline for, because we know there's probably going to be a new 30xx series out before 2077 now.

    So they might do this special edition, and then do another one for the 30whatever in August, which now could be a full special edition with a copy of the game included or something like that.

    Disregarding price and ray tracing, I think the 2080 Ti is a normal update. About a 30% increase in framerates at 4K over the 1080 Ti. The price is awful though.

    I want to see the new flagship outperform the 2080 Ti by about 30% in traditionally lit games and be 100% faster in ray tracing (hopefully possible due to low-hanging-fruit improvements as it is only a second gen part).

    lets see how it ages first, pascal kepler and maxwell aged horribly but wasnt compute focused

    There is speculation the next ones could be close to 100% better in Ray Tracing which i hope is true and would finally bring the tech to proper levels. I am very swayed over the 30% increase in 4k as i rock a 1080Ti and 4k monitor however i didn't jump onto the wagon yet because i VR heavily and the gains were far less than 30%. Here is hoping 3000 series rocks my boat!
    If not is Big Navi something? most likely will shit the bed like AMD keeps doing with GPUs but there is a glimmer of hope, they finally cracked back into the CPU market.

    even IF that is true 100% improvement still = less than tradtional raster

    And definitely more than 11GB I would hope.

    I deny your reality and substitute my own.

    The 3080Ti will be released for Cyberpunk 2077 and I will be on two weeks holiday playing it.

    An old quote from the table top version of the game in relation to being jacked into the 'Net: It is 3 o'clock in the morning. Do you know where your meat body is?
