    A 2080Ti with AIO would be really nice to have.

    Anyone know if NZXT Kraken G12 will be updated?

    I hate the world of tech, news always so slow and restrictive, like there's almost only RTX to talk about right now.

    Anyway this is the one i would like to buy, if it's anything like previous ones it's the most overclocked one by far (of all the 2080 Ti).

    https://www.zotac.com/us/product/graphics_card/zotac-gaming-geforce-rtx-2080-ti-amp

    Price: 1330€

    Nope.

    Not even if it was AIO i'd pay that much.

    I do really need an upgrade because like i mentioned a dozen times, the GTX1080 is bad for 3440x1440.

    However, insane price, 7nm coming next year which will provide better performance and TDP which will compensate very well the wait.

    Unfortunately i don't think that the RTX are going to drop price until 7nm ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    What is the real ray tracing acceleration capability of RT cores in new GPUs?
    Compared to hardware/DirectCompute path without RT cores

    True, but from the same article:

    "...the majority of people earn less than the average wage"

    worth remembering.

    For example I don't earn even close to the average wage for Finland (42K annual after taxes, I wish).
    Actually that's often discussed, who are these "average" people earning the average wage when no one seems to actually make that much, lols.

    But OT.

    I make a bit more than the average, it's not the money, it's that fact that no matter what the price, nVidia can put lipstick on a pig and call it PIGTX and we will buy it.

    Corporate greed at its best. Instead of working on getting more people in to buying their stuff through positive advertising and education, they choose to squeeze more from their current loyal consumer base. I am a fan, but not an idiot. I will switch when I realize you are just charging me out of pure greed, and nothing else.

    So yes, vote with your money, and don't support this pricing model of theirs. EA is a good example of people voting with their money, and not supporting their crap "vision" of games.

    Not even close to the same thing and stop insinuating that people who choose to buy these cards are idiots.

    EA is having problems because they are trying to force their stupid SJW agenda down people's throats while simultaneously rewriting history.

    Nvidia is simply taking advantage of their monopoly, welcome to business 101 ;)

    You are obviously free to 'vote with your wallet' but you might want to rethink telling other people how they should spend their money or implying people are stupid because they don't share your opinion.

    The numbers are before taxes.

    Average is that high, cause a few very wealthy people pull up the average by alot, which is also why the median income is alot lower than the average, especially in a country like 'murica - less so in denmark.

    I've had it with buying new video cards. I have a 780Ti bought for £660: current value feck all and a 980Ti worth peanuts and now they want me to spend ONE THOUSAND pounds just to sit and play video games with cheaters. No deal Nvidia. No deal.

    Well raytracing is a stuff that has been here for years, the regular one on after effect, or the advanced in cinema 4d, maya or blender, is just a that this time is hardware accelerated in realtime for gaming, nvidia is just doing it first, i remeber when amd invented the tessellation, but nvidia got this tech and did it better, nobody was expecting this to be a real deal.

    Tesselation is again not locked to any brand, unlike all the "nvidia features", like rtx, and all the other gameworks gimmicks, which barely anyone bothers to include into their games...

    The more I learn about RTX, the more underwhelmed I am. All this talk of sub-60 fps performance with RTX enabled at 1080p and on the 2080 Ti is just depressing; no-one in their right mind is going to pay £1,000 to play games at 1080p with a sub-60 fps framerate, no matter how pretty it might look. And if performance is impacted so heavily at 1080p then what will it be like at 1440p and, especially, 4K, which is the resolution most people paying this kind of money will be looking to use it at?

    Ray-tracing seems to me to be, at least on this first-gen hardware, PhysX or HairWorks all over again, i.e. effects that when enabled cut the framerate so heavily that most people will just end up turning them off. What is the point in paying an obscene premium for these cards if you aren't going to end up using the very feature you are paying all that money for?

    Maybe when the RTX is in its 3rd or 4th revision in 3-4 years time, ray-tracing might be usable at 4K and 60+ fps but here and now in 2018, I don't think these cards are worth it. Even if the standard game performance is great, say, 40%+ over the GTX 1080 Ti then it would still be a hard sell for me simply because I would rather have a cheaper card without RTX.

    P.S. I watched a HardwareUnboxed video on YouTube where they revealed that the DLSS feature which supposedly *increases* performance actually works by rendering at a lower resolution and upscaling the image to the selected resolution. Even if the results are close to traditional TAA, there are going to be artifacts much like checkerboarding on the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X. However you market it, the image is not rendered at native resolution and that is why the performance increases. Anyway, that is how I understood it.
