I have a situation where I could either keep my MSI GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X 11GB or swap it out for a brand new MSI RTX 2080 Gaming X Trio 8GB (note: not super). There is absolute no money involved here so financials is of absolutely no importance here. I am gaming on a 2560x1440 144hz HDR monitor for reference. My thoughts are that the 1080 Ti has 3GB more VRAM and we are already seeing games like Division 2 cut well over 8GB of RAM playing at 1440p while I also play VR from time to time which we all know uses a large amount of VRAM. As for the RTX 2080, although it has 3GB less VRAM, it seems to pull around 5-10% better in modern games (I have only benched Division 2, Rainbow 6 Siege, 3D Mark Time Spy, and Ghost Recon Wild Lands) which is definitely a plus. Considering I could not care less about ray tracing as it stands, DLSS is dead, and when (and if) ray tracing actually becomes used frequently I know that the RTX 2080 is definitely going to be too under-powered to play any of the games at 1440p and at least ~120 FPS which I am accustomed to I hesitate to keep the 2080 because it seems that most reviews tend to mention how 8GB is just not going to be enough in the future and it would be nice to not have to upgrade my GPU for a few years so that extra 3GB on the 1080 Ti is leaving me unable to make this decision on my own. If it was up to you to pick up one of these cards and put it in your gaming rig without any monetary consideration, just raw gaming power, which one would you choose? Any and all feedback will be most appreciated! Thanks in advance.
