    Yeah no, not at that price... FE or not.

    I really hope this isn't an indication of RTX pricing overall.
    Because if it is this is the first time I can't upgrade simply because I can't afford it!

    (Lower end cards not worth it due to performance).

    So it seems that my next GPU will likely be an AMD one.
    Even if they wouldn't reach RTX performance with Vega 2 should still be powerful enough (I hope) vs. 980 Ti and definitely cheaper.

    Any rumors (or better yet, confirmations) about 20xx cards supporting Freesync? I know it's highly unlikely but I want to upgrade my HTPC/Couch gaming rig to support variable refresh on my TV. I just can't justify side-grading to Vega from the 1070 that's already in it.

    It seems like the industry has spoken and much like the format wars of the past, Freesync has come out on top. I see no reason why they couldn't support both. I mean, cracked Freesync drivers for Nvidia cards were circulating for a while there so clearly the cards are capable and I can't imagine the licensing revenue from Gsync is significant enough to matter.

    C'mon Nvidia!

    Honestly, I quite enjoyed the announcement, to my own surprise. Yet... 1k for a 2080Ti? I'm really not sure about that... also depends on that OC headroom Jensen talked about.

    All I'm sayin', "we got to make things that look like things that look like things!" and "10 Giga Rays!"

    Damn wasn't able to get it at eVGA. My cards didn't go through even though they're pretty much empty and I have a big line of credit. Not sure why. Oh well...might as well wait for the FTW3 or Hybrid.

    To be fair...they could have given us Volta which is 4 times slower in RT and then released Turing in a year. I think the improvements in tech are amazing and the pricing isn't out of this world. Is it still high? Yeah.

    Unfortunately that's what happens with a lack of competition.

    i'm considering getting a normal RTX 2080. I only plan on running 1440p... so i shouldn't need the higher memory bandwidth of the TI right?

    It's morning here, so I've only just woken up. Was there any mention of performance or benchmarks.

    Eh, not really concrete from what I saw. Just the same stuff that happens at all of these kinds of events. You know, like when they showed off the 1080 years ago and said it "easily hit 2.1GHz on air" yet I've never seen one in person that can even hit 2GHz. I am flabbergasted by the prices, but I'll reserve judgment for price versus performance against Pascal until @Hilbert Hagedoorn comes out with the benchmarks.

    hope they dont plan on selling a ton. I imagine theyre smart enough to realize that the overwhelming majority of their core audience is like.. kids and students. I know i never had that kind of disposable income until..... wait - im in my 30s and i still need to thoroughly plan that kind of purchase.

    every year prices creep up cause they can. meanwhile, wages havent increased in like 20 years. good time to be alive.

    Same, also in my 30's, and got a massive dental bill coming up, so it's gonna be tight... but then again, at least in denmark pc hardware is a fairly cheap hobby, compared to for instance horses.

    Prices are mental, over 1600usd for a 2080ti where i live. More than my whole build cost when i ordered parts. This greed isnt good for pc gaming, hope intel and amd can normalize marked in the future. If they dont charge same prices, so 1000usd+ prices becomes the new norm.
    I could order one, i got the cash. But no, just no. Dont wanna support this madness.. o_O
