    Good news that MSI is continuing the lightning series of cards.
    There were Lightning cards for the past 2 Generations of Nvidia cards as far as the Ti series of cards go (980 Ti, 1080 Ti). The only one that wasn't released was the 780 Ti Lightning because MSI refused to release the card after Nvidia didn't allow them to increase the voltage specification.

    with Nvidia gimping all other versions of the 20xx will they allow for the voltage that "lightnings" typically can handle?
    the factory hasn't allowed any overclocks beyond what they bin.

    just curious as i'm unlikely in the extreme to buy the 2080ti.
    i'm much more likely to get a "2180ti".

    I wonder if they will be able to push the limits with this card, as wit the older GTX 780Ti. As far as I know Nvidia has made it harder for these guys to make extreme overclocking cards with all the power limits in place and limiting them to fully push these GPUS. I guess time will tell...

    Currently own the 1080ti Lightening, It's stupidly overkill for most including myself, but the card has zero issues with anything you throw at it, i'm sure at some point the card will want to be ramped to max OC and not even break a sweat :p Also makes a pretty rainbow

    Well I hope you're okay waiting until the new millennium. Until AMD release something, which is not going to happen, nVidia will continue sitting around with their thumbs up their asses as money rains down on them.

    oh yeah...marketing...but money raining down is relative.
    after all people keep assuming that just because AMD gpu's can't beat Nvidia's at the high end that those gpus don't sell.
    those gpus sell, and they sell like hotcakes to the tune of as much as AMD can produce (or as many as the aib partner buy LOL).
    each gpu sold by AMD is at a lower cost of production than Nvidia and the coming generation much more so.

    i'm perfectly fine with my 1080ti, i bought a g-sync monitor last year at 1440p, Ray Tracing is immature and DLSS still needs to accrue data points.
    i'm not particularly enamored of 4k gaming yet. it still feels like 1080p was in 2004.

    I only know of 2 people who have bought nvidia cards within the last 2 years, and at least 8 who have bought AMD - for no other reason than they handle 1080p fine, and because us parents can afford them... so yeah, there IS a market.
    Going even further, i know of at least 4 people who have built AMD-ONLY pc's, and while waiting to see what (the true) Ryzen 2 has to offer, i'm contemplating going down that road myself when it's released...
