    Wake me up when they're priced sensibly and not as though there's a mining craze.

    This just shows how insanely inflated the prices are both from original dev, aibs and retailers.

    ...even crazier is that people will now think they're an absolute bargain at $1K, so complete is the conditioning by Nvidia of the sheep to accept obscene prices on GPU's.

    IMO, the prices should be more like the following:

    RTX 2070: 429
    RTX 2080: 599
    RTX 2080 Ti: 799

    Along with this, the Pascal cards should look like this:

    GTX 1050 Ti: 129
    GTX 1060: 179
    GTX 1070: 279
    GTX 1070 Ti: 329
    GTX 1080: 379
    GTX 1080 Ti: 549

    Nvidia is just completely screwing everyone on the prices of both series of cards.

    That's USD. Here in Europe slap at least another 200 euros on top.

    I am in Canada, so slap another 50-60 percent on top of those prices. For instance, an RTX 2080 Ti costs 1850 Canadian after taxes here.

    The card is barely in stock. To say that its supply volume is minuscule would be an understatement.

    I very much doubt we'll see it in stock at $999; anytime soon that is...

    if only customers worldwide would see through the Ngreedia Scam and NOT buy ANY cards this time around..... let them sit on a mountain of cards and see if they can please shareholders with that..
    Never gonna happen tho, sadly

    I mean the chips are larger, shader core alone is comparable to previous whole card and I'm impressed by the Tensor core's TFLOPS/TOPS. It's a dam Quadro with less RAM, and there's some raytracing thing (not that impressed, though nice to have in addition). The moment it get's decent value through software implementation it's cheap AF.

    Mister @Hilbert Hagedoorn, can we do also a news about these cards being sold are broken or breaking after a few days of usage?
    Yes, they are nice cards, but people pay tons of money for them and many of them are breaking as you can see on the geforce forums.

    LE: I know it is bad press to say this truth, but since this is a legit HW site that cares about its users, I think you should post this new asap.

    There seem to be a lot of issues with them indeed. Question is - is it a bad batch, or a widespread issue which can become visible right away, or months later?

    Even with price drops, that is still one fugly looking card with its cheap and nasty gelatin-looking top casing. Putting this card next to a Founders Edition would be like putting a Lada Samara next to a Lamborghini. Or more accurately its like putting a Lamborghini engine into the chassis of a Lada Samara.

    Come on man... I get it, the card is expensive... But to make the statement that "It is one of the worse GPU's I've seen in the 20 years I've been PC gaming" is simply ridiculous. You state that only "fanboys" are backing this GPU yet your statement clearly drips of the exact opposite sentiment in the same silly regard. Given the features and performance of the 2080ti you simply have no argument to make that not only is it not a bad GPU but it is actually a great GPU. I mean it has performance gains from the previous generation anywhere from 20-50% and includes a bevy of new and ground-breaking features. To deny that is only to be a "contrarian" for no good reason. Look, I know the damn card is expensive. No doubt. But it is also an amazing card that should be recognized as such... Not crapped on simply because currently AMD sucks and due to having no competition Nvidia can basically choose it's price. I mean, 110TFLOP Tensor Cores and RT cores capable of real-time Raytracing! These are features NO ONE thought would be possible for another decade, at least! And you state that it is the worst card in 20 years?!? Come on... Get real.

    I read a number of threads in the 2080/2080ti forums...problems are seen across a number of manufacturers including Founders Edition, Asus and MSI. I doubt there is a problem with the cards themselves, more like driver/windows/psu problems.
    1) Never rush to install the latest version of windows (1809)
    2) Always do a clean install of your gpu drivers, also, don't install the latest drivers unless the change log contains a fix for an existing problem you are having
    3) Never use a cable splitter to power the 2nd and/or 3rd power connector on your gpu, each power connector should get it's own cable from the psu
