    Not that my feelings mean anything, but I bet it will beat the 1080 Ti, if only by a little, at least.

    I'm guessing the 2080 is going to be between 5-10% faster than the Ti.

    Yeah, I was more referring to the guys above my post, who obviously were throwing names at each other for no reason.

    edit: or below, name calling again... you see I was not referring to discussions but people take it way more serious than necessary if somebody is of a different opinion.

    According to Veganism, it actually is. It's a responsibility being shirked by tech hungry impatient people, who are damaging the industry, so IN A WAY, by supporting Nvidia you are actually damaging progress, and the industry as a whole.

    I am not going to go in depth as it's a TOTAL waste of time, it's like reasoning with someone who wants to eat meat so badly they will actually convince THEMSELVES they are not REALLY contributing to all the negative effects that doing so causes :p Or another good one.... them giving up meat won;t REALLY make any difference in the scheme of how many others do :D

    This is just an example BTW :D Probably go over a few heads.

    He's trying to spread the word, go watch Vegan Gains, he has a lot of haters too due to his delivery, but the message is undeniable. People who get caught up in the delivery I find a bit simple personally.

    Here, it's going to fall on deaf ears though, that's for sure.

    To make things clear, I am NOT vegan, but I do ACCEPT I am a **** for eating meat.

    I expect a few uneducated responses to this ;o;

    This is an analogy.... In a likely unsuccessful attempt to help people here understand why they really shouldn't support Nvidia, even if they feel DESPERATE to play with this new tech.

    I wish I had a more readily relatable one

    All this thread needed was Veganism, now it gets interesting, will continue to lurk to see how situation develops.

    EDIT

    Also needing to explain couple of times that something is an analogy, probably makes it a bad analogy.

    Don't get caught up, it's a pure analogy and totally relevant, and I don;t see your logic there... people are quick to judge and VERY defensive... hence my trying to make it very clear where I went with this and why

    Do you cri everitim you eat a burger with meat? Or maybe cut yourself because you are such an asshole? Also do people that will buy 2080/2080Ti need to do the same?
    Everyone should not support nvidia or meat companies because they are evil? Says who? Maybe someone should decide for everyone how to spend their money and decide if you are an asshole when you eat meat or buy 2080/2080Ti (everytime I make that comparison a chuckle a little, thanks for that). Did you smell that? I know that smell, smells like Marx just farted.

    I don't give that much of a ****

    It's just discussion and I am being devil's advocate helping translate a little, I do believe we should not support Nvidia but back to my fist point... I don;t give THAT much of a ****

    Relax.

    Oh actually correction I will reword this, I do believe it is a MISTAKE to support Nvidia right now :D

    This is a bit of enjoyable discussion regarding the 'controversial pricing' of the new 20 series cards, (that 99% of the tech industry is talking about, as in.. it's THE biggest talking point regarding the new 20 series GPU's from Nvidia) and the damage buying them could actually do to the industry and future pricing, etc.... ETC

    let's not get too worked up about an analogy I made.

    I'm relaxed as I can be. I believe that they do not need an advocate. It's rather simple, someone wants to buy those cards, they have money so they can. That does not make those people bad nvidia supporters, scum of the earth. Most of the people won't buy them and we will see if it will pay off for nvidia. Free market will do it's thing, maybe AMD can come up with something and that will also help.
    The same with meat, you can be asshole for milion other reasons, I do not know you, but eating meat does not make you one. Also funny how most of the people that I have run into, that do not eat meat were assholes.

    EDIT

    What damage can it cause? If they will see that those prices are ok and they will keep rising them then it will come to a point where that bubble will burst. Either AMD will come up with a GPU that cost less and performs the same or better or people will just say enough and they will need to drive prices down.

    Right here we would need a definition of an asshole. And this is not the place to continue this, and by reading that last post I can see I wouldn't want to anyway.

    Don't put ridiculous words in my mouth

    Peace.

    It's you who wanted to play devil's advocate, and that is exactly the impression their posts leave.

    This thread is hilarious. As a Vegan I am now conflicted when it comes to whether I should upgrade my 1080TI -> 2080TI....

    But seriously, just a few more days now guys before we get the numbers :)

    Yes, so @Hilbert Hagedoorn could you, by mistake of course, slip a little number out on the forum? Nothing major, just a little Firestrike score or something ;) Then blame the cat for walking on the keyboard, which is a totally valid excuse since our furry little friends do like doing that :>

    ... or he doesn't, and doesn't violate the NDA and is not barred from doing anything for us readers in the future :D

    But really, I would not have seen any leaks here, this aren't the droids Nvidia would be looking for... ;)

    I'm all with you, don't worry, but honestly the longer it takes the more I'm able to control my urge to upgrade, I have to admit... not nearly as hyped as a month ago tbh, they just took too long and made it too much of a mystery :D

    I've recently started to calculate more and more how to financially go through with this upgrade :) I could potentially get ~600€ for my old card but I would need another 700-800€ to cover the cost of a 2080Ti.

    And I fear these cards wont hold their value.
    The market paying near $1000 is very limited, the loss will be much greater.
