    Stop mocking me, I don't disregard optimizations in general, I just question your "at least 5%", that's all. But if you're sure then great news for those who has that 2070. I don't remember getting a 25% increase over my old 980Ti and then another 5% on top of that but maybe its happened.

    Come to think of it, +5% might very well be an overestimate on my part. +5% sweeping increase across the board is actually pretty big because it includes old games which likely won't see any kind of gains.
    OTOH looking solely at upcoming games, 5% uplift vs 1080ti is proly conservative. Not that I would bet my house, but lets say a piece of periphery...?

    Oh and I forgot... add fast FP16 aka Rapid Packed Math, previously reserved for GP100/GV100, to the list of features.

    LOL i know rite
    and if you're that much into 2nd hand why not get a 2nd hand 2080 :p

    now seriously... 11GB -> 8GB is a bummer.
    ATM the impact of -3GB is proly just psychological, but 2 years down the road, it will be real, especially at 4k.
    With ~40% more VRAM (11GB), 2080 would age better no doubt about it.

    Of course it is used. There is nothing wrong with a used 1080ti. EVGA cards still have their warranty.

    People here are talking about buying a 1080ti USED on Ebay. Big difference. No one in their right mind is buying a 1080ti for full price right now.

    Second hand 2080s are not really decreasing much past what they are now. There aren't many second hand cards even out there. That's why. The 1080ti has a mature second hand market with a lot of quality cards out there for 500 bucks. And with EVGA you still have warranty. After trade in I paid 260 bucks for my card. I didn't want to spend any more than that.

    wait till the next gen after the 2xxx series come. the price will rise another $150+ I wont be buying new GPU any time soon, so 4 years altest and if prices dont go back normal for gpu i will just go console root, I already generally spend 750$ every 4-5 years for new CPU/MOBO and RAM and generally just reuse my case,psu,hdd/ssd less they need to replaced then another $300 for new gpu which is general the xx60 gts/ti cards and the prices on those card have slowly going up too a year after that. I be damned if i gona start pay 450+ gpu

    I've sold and bought many items, used with warranty, and never have I had any problems activating the warranty when needed... Most brands honor the warranty regardless of who bought it, if it has all the warranty stickers on it and you have proof of purchase.

    I was curious because if you buy at an etailer, technically the proof of purchase is between the etailer and a single person, and usually you don't set up any contracts when buying a second hand card that states the sellers name (which is in the etailers proof of purches), and the buyer's. Good to know it works though, I personally never was in that situation.

    I just checked out some local prices and was absolutely stunned. A GTX 1080 Ti at Newegg.ca is going for anywhere from $1045 to a whopping $1940! Most of the cheaper ones are also out of stock so you're likely looking at around $1400 for this GPU - prices which would match the prices at the height of the mining craze. By comparison, a RTX 2080 is far cheaper - around $1100.

    Anyone wanna buy mine? I'm gonna list it in the FS section. Evga 1080Ti SC - $400 shipped. About 4 months old. Got married, got gifts, got a 2080 vanilla. Basically same card, but the rtx features @ 10fps4k is nice, so keeping 2080, selling Ti. Sold twice on here already. No issues.

    In my experience as a consumer and a professional of the computer industry, the name in the invoice doesn't count for anything in 95% of cases.
    The warranty is for the product and it's not a contract between the person who bought the item and the store that sold it or the manufacturer that produced it. That's the case if you buy and insurance for a product or an extra warranty celebrated between you and a specific store but not by the mandatory warranty specific to the country.

    What ya folks need to do, is read the warranty terms on the AIB's website. For EVGA specifically for US warranty period, it is either the date of purchase for the original owner with receipt or the shipping date from the factory if it is 2nd hand. Unfortunately they no longer have the guest RMA process where you could check the warranty time left by ser#.

    For the same reason i dont buy certain cars or watches, i dont need them. Res Evil 7 at 4k is 60fps, BF4 is fast as is COH2 and the DCS Sim series. Its also the same reason i still have my i7 2700k @ 4.9ghz, because changing it out realy wouldnt see my gaming experience improve. Having said that il be eyeing up a Ryzen build soon as the DCS series is closing in on 32gb RAM territory.

    I want a faster card but there is only one. If I would want a faster car there are many to choose from, not just one. And regarding upgrading CPU, it depends which resolution you play at. If you play at 1080p you would see a big difference in some games, less in others, but at 4K the difference is often no more than a few frames if any.
