    Just watched a video ( google Turing HDR gaming) I turned of HDR using my 1080ti due to the performance hit I never realised there is no performance hit using RTX Gpus same FPS ON and OFF I will be re enabling it in games.

    Found a good deal on a Palit Gamerock 2080, kinda tempted to upgrade from my Palit Gamerock 1080. Anyone upgraded from 1080 to 2080? The reason I'm thinking about upgrading is that I have a 165hz Gsync monitor so the extra fps would help boost my fps and it would help to hit 90 fps in VR.

    Not a massive upgrade, I know, but it would kinda do enough is my thinking.

    I did a deal with my 1080ti for a RTX2080 (I had a good 1080ti friend wanted sli) I am really pleased with the RTX2080 It handles 4k well is a cool GPU and Is slightly quicker than 1080ti but I believe that gap will widen as drivers improve and with better game support.

    GTX1080ti to RTX2080 a very slight upgrade would not recommend if it cost more than £50.
    GTX1080 to RTX2080 a very nice upgrade.
    anything below a GTX1080 it would be an awesome upgrade.

    I have a HTC Vive the 1080ti was awesome the RTX2080 is equally awesome but again with better drivers and tech advances it can only get better

    Yeah, been looking at all possible reviews out there and at 1440p I see that I would go from 80fps to 110fps in some games and from 60 something to 80 something in others, that right there is exactly what I need, closer to 90fps in VR and any frames in general would be a plus with my monitor too.

    The only reason I'm delaying this is because overall, the 1080 is still very capable at 1440p. Damn, decisions.

    Went ahead and ordered the Palit Gamerock 2080. The Palit Gamerock 1080 I have now has served me well, a great gpu with amazing cooling, hoping this 2080 is just as good. Judging by the reviews, it should be a good one.

    I am testing my new RTX 2070 and im running out of games
    STAR WARS Battlefront II - framerate drops below 70 for long 1440p
    Battlefield 1 - adaptive sync works for not the whole bloody screen at the bottom there is wide gap where it cuts through like v-sync off
    DOOM - adaptive sync doesn't work in vulkan and open gl
    Overwatch - works perfectly
    Fallout 76 - adaptive sync doesn't work
    Borderlands The Pre-Sequel - tiny micro stutters that breaks immersion of adaptive sync which do work this time
    nvidia pendulum demo doesn't work with adaptive sync
    im downloading far cry 5 now as this is my benchmark if this is broken then yeah nvidia experience is not great

    aaaaand no
    far cry 5 has bottom parts of the screen out of sync while the rest works

    on RX 580 all of the games work just fine
    part2

    enabling fast sync
    -fixed far cry 5
    -enabled adaptive sync in DOOM but without bottom of the screen, oh it works with type of a sync in DOOM menu now

    That's the exactly the same card i wanted to upgrade from my Asus strix 1070
    but the lack of funds right now and the insane price of 1100 euros i think i will wait out till AMD or Nvidia releases their next gen gpus.
    Plus 8gb of vram might be inadequate when next gen consoles are released.

    I definitely agree about the ram ,but I couldn't justify in my head(or my wife) spending 1300.00 dollars on a 2080ti ,lol

    A lot of people buying these top end gpus will have upgraded by the time the next gen consoles arrive anyway.

    Hi guys

    I am planing on buyin a RTX 2080 card.
    At the moment I am looking at the MSI Gaming X Trio and the Asus Strix OC.
    Coming from a MSI GTX 970 Gaming I am inclined to the MSI :).

    Any thought which one is better and why?Also want the more silent one. Cost is no issue.

    Thanks
