    I just bought 2 EVGA 2080 FTW 3 Ultras on the weekend. 1 for myself, the other for my sons birthday. Sold my EVGA 1080ti FTW 3 for 700.00. So that helped offset the cost of the card. Metro Exodus in 5 days, so we`ll see what
    that looks like.

    Just picked up an Asus 2080 Dual OC. So far so good, load temps @ 75c with SOTR. Pretty thick card (2.7 slot), and heavy, but overall a bit smaller than my last (Zotac 1070 Amp). After the AMD R VII disappointing launch, there was nothing out there but the 2080 and this could be for a long time.

    does anyone know how long it takes for asus to issue the bundle code
    after you apply for them from the promotion ?

    Thought I'd post this in here too so I wouldn't just get 1080 Ti bias remarks...

    MSI Gaming X 1080 TI for 840 CAD everything included (tax, shipping, etc...) I want it but I have a GTX 1080 already and the 2080 is now 900 bucks (but plus tax) so what the heck do I do? Buy the 1080 Ti and sell my card, buy the 2080 sell m y card and the 2 games, skip it all and laugh at people paying the prices for 3 year cards with 3 year old performance and new cards with 3 year old performance for more than the 3 year old card?

    Will Turing get optimized because it is a new uarch over time and become better than the 1080 ti? I already saw a bunch of dx12 and vulkcan benches where the 2080 thumped the 1080 ti with the newest drivers out.

    I don't know what to do!

    Should get it quick. Didnt get mine from Asus but from Amazon who sent me the promo codes day after placing order. Since its an Nvidia promo, you should also contact them if you dont get the codes soon (since the promo expires in a week or two I believe), with details of your order.

    Tough one. I could flip a coin and be happy with either I believe (dont care about RT since I game @ 4k). The 2080 of course will be more futureproof and have the advantage in DX12/Vulkan and newer titles. Since you say you dont know what to do, maybe you can sleep on it and keep an eye out for performance reviews of games you care about.

    Yeah it looks like I'll probably be "sleeping" on it until nVidia or AMD actually offers something worth buying. I already use 8GB of VRAM on my 2560*1440 in a few games (this is not caching but actual use) and thinking of buying a new GPU right now with only 8GB seems like one of the stupidest things I could do if I want to factor in having the card for more then 6 months to a year which is why I am leaning to the 1080 Ti although those cards should be much cheaper than they are because everyone is trying to get them due to the 2080 being probably one of the most redundant cards in history.

    I'll probably just think about upgrading and get urges from time to time until something truly next gen comes out that is worth the asking price.

    Just curious, how did you determine what caching is vs actual use? If there were any vram demanding games where 8gb was not enough, it certainly would not happen at 1440p in any current game that exists. I'm on 4k res and have no issues whatsoever even in the most demanding vram games at the moment.

    Yet you came to the 8gb 2080 thread to ask when you're already convinced 8gb is not enough? OK. :rolleyes:

    i run at 1440p and have tried many demanding games, none of which have used 8GB of VRAM (at least according to GPU tweak 2) except for one game, RE2 remake and that was using like 150% scaling.

    Caching takes time and actual vram usage jumps almost immediately. I know you are not fan of adoredtv bashing on 2080 but you saw how rottr is using 10gb vram in 2sec after loading on RVII.

    Its a DX12 bug ONLY in ROTR. It does not affect DX11 performance where I am able to go through the same Geothermal Valley area smooth as butter with my vram never exceeding 7860mb. The higher the vram capacity of the card, the more the game/driver allocates to the GPU, its as simple as that. Adored probably knew better but chose to leave these inconvenient little details out of his review.

    I scared the frack out of myself a couple days ago playing Metro Exodus I notice GPU getting to 80c,turns fans on to 100% on
    EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 XC ULTRA GAMING card and wow this thing is loud ,I almost crapped a brick.

    I told myself years ago never to buy EVGA again but like a dummy I did.Always something not right about the EVGA cards,just my opinion.

    What is surprising I can run Gigabyte GTX 1080TI SLI 100% and not even half as loud.

    So now let me say I am not a shill for gigabyte,I do not hate EVGA and I not a shill for Metro Exodus or RTX ray tracing ,did I forget anything because everyone on the net is an expert and a negative fracker. :D

    Hi guys,
    I have this really bad blinking textures or shaders in Battlefiled V.
    Almost all screen turns orange in regular time intervals.
    I'm not sure if it is software (driver, game) or hardware issue.

    Could anyone of you test it?
    If I will send back a good card they will charge me for diagnostics and replacement. :(



    Youtube is still processing the video, 1440p should be available soon.
    But even at low resolution the issue is apparent.
    This blinking is mostly visible in last chapter of campaign 'The Last Tiger'.
    I see it from the beginning, it gets worse in later acts (like in the video).

    System specs:
    Windows 10 1809
    Asus Strix RTX 2080 8GB OC
    Driver 418.91

    Game setting:
    1440p
    All setting Ultra
    HBOA+
    RTX ON
    DLSS ON

    That's just some stuck explosion that lits the area in intervals. Your GPU is fine.

    Thanks. I have this 'effect' throughout whole Last Tiger campaign, map.

    Currently running a GTX 1070; do you guys think upgrading to a RTX 2080 is worth it in the long run? My monitor is a 1440P 165hz one if that matters.

    Could be driver or game bug too, maybe report to nvidia driver thread.


    at 1440p and no DSR, I would say at least 1-2years easily.
