    Right there with you, have run it since the days of 3DFx, had 4 way Titans and it does have it's benefits but I'm at an age where I don't want to tinker anymore and especially since I do a lot of VR (where SLI is essentially useless), I want to get away from it.

    Like you, if NVLink had been what I thought it was going to be (software not needed, two cards seen as one) I would have stuck with it but NVLink is just SLI 2.0 and as much as Nvidia says they are going to recommit to SLI, I have heard that before (right before the worst period of support in recent history).

    Too much fanboyism, not enough open eyes, and definitely a shortage of brains.

    That statement is as true as it is utterly ridiculous.

    I imagine there's a handful of Nvidia shills who work the forums + fanboys = what you see here.

    I am pleased that near all of the reputable reviewers are calling this for what it is.

    Ughhh,

    Can you just stop with the name calling.

    We can all have a laugh, but your insistence on attacking people who don't share your opinion is becoming irksome.

    All this because you are irrationally butthurt over an expensive GPU :rolleyes:

    There are other (far more important) things in life to concern yourself with.

    I think you need to step away from the keyboard and get some fresh air, seriously.

    Nobody works for Nvidia. Not everyone is coming from a 10XX series card so it's a nice performance jump for us.

    And you're forgetting that new tech comes at a cost. Cards can keep supporting the same tech over and over until there is little if any gains between generations. Or one of the companies can take the risk and come out with something that pushes tech in another direction. I mean I know you need to make excuses to justify your GPU purchase but don't take it out on the rest of us.

    And we both know that you won't stop with your incessant whining.

    I try to keep it civil because most of us are here to talk about new tech, not whine about crap we can't afford.

    Best of luck.

    you are pathetic, i give you the courtesy of explaining my stance and you can't do the same? its pretty much because you don't have anything and you know it. And don't give me that "the reviews speak for themselves" i'm not interested in watching a million reviews on the cards, I think HH's review was sufficient.
    When name calling shows up in an argument they call that ad hominem and is a fallacy. You are trying to convince people that nviida is a scourge upon the earth but the best you have is "only fanboys can like it".

    Take a break, nobody cares to read your continuous repeated posts attacking people who want them.

    you're the only one with a pitchfork proclaiming something like this:
    "can't let them get away with GPU Murder and the days of the internet give nobodies like me a voice."

    You now have a 7 day break from the forums, you are welcome back in next week, think, reflect but know that fighting is not accepted here.

    I just want to congratulate those of you who bought this card. Hope you're happy with it. :) is it as good as you had hoped? I'm one step from ordering an RTX 2080ti+i7-8700k build myself... :p the msi gaming trio costs almost 1700 dollars here though :(

    OK a question for ya, I have two GTX 1080ti in SLI, which when it works, works well, but not all game support SLI anymore, so, is it worth selling both my cards for one RTX2080ti?

    Go to Gamers Nexus and find the article about it, mentioned just above your post.
    It cant be posted here, blocked.

    I wouldnt sell 2x1080ti for a 2080ti unless I had a gun at my head.

    I'm doing exactly that and I have posted previously in this thread about why.

    I will say that if your primary concern is speed and the games you play support SLI, I would stick with 1080 Ti SLI.
