    Will the 2070 be the decisive Turing card? :p

    I can understand why they did not include the NVLink fingers!:rolleyes:

    Yeah looks like RTX 2070 will be faster than the 1080 lets see at what price point.

    EVGA is releasing a 2070 at $500 .... let's see if other AIB's follow suit.:)

    Actually Nvidia told the AIB's they had to also send their $499 cards to be reviewed.
    From the reviews they seem to perform quite well and are likely to be a hot item though manufactured with not quite the same quality as a higher priced custom models.

    Surprisingly I've seen preorders (recieve card next monday) at less that 550€, even at 519€ if you can wait until Nov. 12th, which makes this the most reasonable release for 20XX by far.

    It's a shame that with a 1070ti and 3440x1440 it feels a sidegrade more than an upgrade, so I think I'll pass

    It's probably 2080/ti or skip this generation for me

    This seems to be the best RTX card from price/performance standpoint by far, slotting nicely between 1080 and 1080 Ti performance wise while costing less than 1080 (give or take).
    OC'ed might reach 1080 Ti even or get close.

    Useless for anyone with a Pascal card yes but given the reasonable(ish) price for Maxwell users like me worth considering, even.

    There are many scenarios where it could exceed 1080Ti performance for example even on stock i.e.
    [​IMG]
    Of course 1080 is far away after OCed both 16ghz memory with 256bit is capable of 500+GB/s where 1080 with 11-12 is doing 320-340

    Also found that curious, as I have checked multiple major reviews of that card and in some titles card literally outperforms 1080Ti, while in others its 10-15% slower than it.

    I have a suspicion that in some cases in some games RTX 2070 simply doesn't fully render some effects/elements.

    Vulkan performance seems exceptionally (suspiciously?) good on RTX cards, wonder what's the thing there.
    Shader processor counts won't explain it, especially as 2070 outperforms a 1080 Ti.

    Looking good futurewise ofc, if Vulkan becomes more popular, hope it does.

    So yeah.... I grew tired of complaining about the RTX series so bought a MSI RTX 2070 Armor :D
    (around 570 EUR w/ shipping)

    not a massive upgrade (unless Vulkan :p ) but a decent notch up in performance and memory amount + newer tech (DLSS looks very promising).
    Plus a massive upgrade in performance would have required a massive upgrade in wallet size first, lols.

    This one was fairly priced and actually quite a bit cheaper than the 980 Ti was when new.
    Granted I'm comparing Maxwell flagship to Turing mainstream / high-end but nice to get a "downgrade" in cost when upgrading every so often.

    It's funny because Vulkan is sort of "AMD" territory, and Nvidia performs best on it. Really does show how M$ + Ngreedia are artificially "limiting" the market.

    Personally, I will skip the whole 2000 Series, next year we have Navi from AMD + I predict that Nvidia will roll out whatever they have next in tandem with AMD or shortly after it. Prices are absurd, Polaris is still well above MSRP (which tells a lot about this release).

    Yeah I was gonna skip 2000 series too initially, but the allure of new hardware won in the end with RTX 2070 looking good enough.

    About 1.5 x performance boost and + 2 GB VRAM compared to 980 ti without costing an arm and a aleg so I felt it was enough to upgrade.
    Plus should be enough for me for some time as I intend to stay on 1080p (or 1440p+ with DSR) for the time being.

    Well if you watched the video till the end, you would see that:
    a) high chance of degradation over time
    b) temps
    c) power bill
