    I removed the Overclocks, that wasn't the issue, the driver is installed clean with DDU, definitely not that. I have seen this before. Either a memory module dying or one of the shader cores are also not working correctly. RTX/DXR pushes the card very hard. I think I will have to return the card before my warranty expires, which isn't long from now, 2-3 months left on it. :O

    Metro Exodus in motion, at 720p if you can play.:(




    At 1080p with RTX High it seems stable and there seems to be no big difference with Ultra

    So, who in here uses ray tracing in most of their gaming time? And if so, what percentage of your gaming with RT on in online PvP gaming (BFV for instance)? I get that the RT etc is nice for development and other tasks besides gaming. What percentage of the RTX cards are used primarily for that purpose?. I bet the overall per percentages to all three questions is very low. So, why force everyone to pay for RTX cores in the top tier products 2060 and up? Justify it all you want, but if you paid $1300 for a 2080ti, well, good luck with that.

    A bad buy is a bad buy, regardless of how wealthy you are. The 2060, an ok buy, the 70 is the worst buy of them all, maybe the 80 over a used 1080ti, but for 500vs800, probably not. The 2080ti is worth around 800 to most people. $1200 is just retarded.

    lol, are you also mad you dont own a 200 room mansion or that you dont drive a Bugatti for 2mill?
    the only thing you are forced to do is breathing and dying, everything else is optional.
    buy it, or dont, no one cares.
    im happy for the ppl that have the means to get it.

    funny how many whined rtx is only on 2 cards, and they should offer it on "all".
    now they do, and ppl still whine.

    Possible, Nvidia seems to be going farther from double or single precision compute with each generation. I guess even single precision isn't that important for gaming or deep learning tasks?

    Gaming its important, deep learning not that important (half precision is typically good enough for training, inferencing can be done with super low precision). AFAIK the only games that even make use of half precision are Farcry 5 (specifically the water shader) and Doom. I don't think I ever read if it's even been confirmed that those implementations are working on Nvidia's half-precision hardware as both were developed with AMD's shader intrinsic functions. That being said now that both companies support half precision workloads we'll probably see more use of it in various ways going forward but limited to shaders that don't really impact image quality/relatively unnoticeable to the player.

    I wonder how the GTX1660 Ti vs GTX1070 / Ti will compare with each other with RTX/DRX on. As the 1070 cards have more Shader Units and / ROP count and 2GB more VRAM. It would be very interesting to see.

    Ah, that's a good way to not have to deal with your statements that are completely off when called on it. Don't provide proof, don't provide why you stated what you stated, just try and insult.

    Good job.

    Always a good indication of lack of intellect. When no debate is left...retort to insults.

    Hats of to nvidia for opening support, but...pointless at these performance levels. Helps a consumer feel good about an old purchase, but not realistic at all to use in real time gaming.

    Wait, you're surprised that the over all percentage of folks using something new is very low? Gosh, I wonder if that is because it is in fact new and very few titles use it. Nah...that can't be it. I can't be that simple and obvious. Nobody needs to justify their purchase to you. What your post reads like is the typical complaint from an AMD fan who just recognized two things: If you want the TOP END PERFORMANCE, you will have to switch camps and pay for the privilege. The enthusiast space, which AMD has apparently abandoned (for now), is not the price/performance space and never will be.

    I'm not sure about that yet. Sure on the 3DMark bench I average 10 FPS. But as a technology mule, this might be interesting. Frankly I think a lot of effects are over done. Like in nature you see hints of reflections, whereas in games they tend make them hyper realistic almost as if the EFFECT is the point and not given the image a more natural look with visual cues. What I'm getting at is I think as the rendering tech progresses, we'll see more efficient and natural effect that may require less rendering. No, I don't expect full screen RT at 4K on a 1080 Ti. But RT effects certainly could be done.

    At least GTX users have some thing new and exciting to play with, and newer games will of course be designed with that in mind.

    With all said and done, it can only be a good thing.

    NVIDIA is STILL boicotting pascal gpus. Installed the 425.31 driver needed to run this demo and all my installed games just as the Unigine Valley and Heaven benchmarks did experience a performance loss around 8-10%
    This gtx 1080 card that I have is my last one.
    Good luck green boys.

    Sales are lower than last year specifically because of the mining market decline. Card sales to nVidia's normal customer base is not any lower than last year. I personally know far more people who bought RTX cards than did Pascal in the 6 months after each respectively was released.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not happy one bit about the prices for cards. Which is why i refuse to buy one. The fact that prices are still where they are is due to them selling just fine.

    Im curious to know how many poor indie developers are pushing the most cutting edge next-gen graphics features. They're not interested in pushing the limits of technology. Even if these cards were half the price they wouldn't be using RTX features. That's a luxury for well established devs with the money to burn on eye candy.

    I am running the game fine.... with rtx on medium and sometimes high and getting around 30 to 40fps lol Its only when i turn off the rtx off when i see the performance impact lol coming from 1080p exteme quality 104 - 110fps lol the performance impact is huge.

    multi gpu and sli does not scale well nowadays and in some cases you get even worse performance than running a single card.

    Its irrelevant, RTX is just a feature, and having it is better then not having it, they widen the market by having such features.
