    Nooo its too early for a Ti, I only got my 1080Ti a year ago lol.

    Interesting that the memory size is the same

    That would be amazing if they did launch the Ti first up.

    Nvidia knows it has to refresh next year on 7nm.. that's why they are launching a Ti so soon. They've been building 800mm2 Titan/GV100's on this process for a year now. It's not like it's a new node where they have worry about yield ramps. I'm still surprised they bothered releasing this series and not just waiting for 7nm to become available, but I guess if they are going to rush the whole thing out it makes sense.

    That’s bad ass. Thought I’d have to go the 2080 route again but would be great if I could upgrade right away to the Ti

    Nice, but I'm surprised that they aren't going any higher for the memory. Enough for 4k but what about pushing more details and post processing at 4k or at a higher hz?

    So i was right, there was indeed Ti so soon, like i also said they can always make a better version than the Ti later on that's the main reason why i thought they would make Ti so soon, in fact it only makes sense since next Year AMD 7nm should be out and so will NVIDIA 7nm.

    We might even see RTX2085/RTX2090.

    The question remains tho, when we will see Multi GPU cards again? Would 7nm make this easier to achieve?

    I think they will release it right away so they can charge higher $$, otherwise they would have to settle with the same 650-699$ later on.. now they can sell that 2080ti for 750-850$ np.

    Well even 8gb is rather overkill for many machines, 11gb is enough in my mind, most games still use around 4-6gb.

    But yeah the 2080 ti makes me question this a bit, the TI shouldn't be out for least another year, Nvidia normally do is as a mid gap jump up, its what they have always done so i assume its the same. just box art i guess

    11gb should be enough even for 4k/5k

    https://www.tweaktown.com/tweakipedia/89/much-vram-need-1080p-1440p-4k/index.html

    Bit old now but unless 4k vram usage has tripped i think we are fine, Guess if you want to game at 8k you might have some issues... Though i've not heard of higher hz needing more memory?

    That makes sense, I might just wait for that then as I don't really feel the need of an upgrade for my 1080Ti just yet. But then again, if the 2080Ti is significantly better, I might cave anyway. :oops:

    The white on the lettering where it says RTX is too bright and doesn't match the rest of the lighting on the picture.
    Some lettering is also slightly misaligned with the box perspective and other lettering.

    Also, quite low-rez and with plenty of JPG artefats, probably to hide the fact that it's 'pshopped.
    Quite poor job actually.

    WTX conclusion: Fake
    Move on, nothing to see here.

    Oh looky, my nickname is abbreviated with TX as well ^.^

    Lucky for us in Europe is going to be around 1k Euros i bet.

    649$ minimum RTX2080 and Ti 800$ maybe.

    So for EU that's like 750€ RTX2080 and Ti 950€.

    If only the RTX2080 Ti was 800€ :)

    How's that different from official pics of say GTX1080? https://www.msi.com/Graphics-card/GeForce-GTX-1080-GAMING-X-8G/Gallery

    Only difference is less JPG compression.

    Just read the news, first thought - Fake. I can see @wavetrex was ahead of me. Can't add anything.

    Videocardz is known for fakes.

    Just found a NVIDIA discord and has plenty NV employees there, not that i'm going to ask nor that they are going to answer on this matter because they're not allowed anyway.

    But is useful regardless to have this, in case someone finds it useful: https://discordapp.com/invite/nvidia

    Anyway, i'm kind of upset because Watercooler RTX2080 Ti prob 1200€

    My GTX1080 Sea Hawk X was almost 900€ ._.

    And the GTX1080 is pretty bad for Ultrawide 1440p so have to upgrade anyway

    And mine was 1030 Euro, in a country where the average wage is 400 euro. Fantastic isn't it?

    That last pic has an NVLink connector on it, not the usual SLI connector.
    So maybe SLI is gone the way of the Dodo now, and NVLink is the new SLI ?
