    Enough said.

    Nobody likes the prices, but enough is enough.

    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.

    Im also tempted to sell my Ti's for a single 2080ti.

    But, Nvidia has said they are going to put more focus back on sli, Wishful I know.

    If in a perfect world example say that hypothetically from here on games supported sli amazingly, My 1080ti's would be faster.

    Scrathc what i said about pcie, The nvlink SHOULD make up for it.

    Its a tough decision.

    Yah, Nvidia's promises when it comes to SLI are less than confidence inspiring.

    There is always talk about how they are going to improve it right around product launches (I wonder why that could be :rolleyes: )

    It is a difficult decision but if SLI/NVLink suddenly becomes what it should be (and what it was), you can always pick up a second 2080 Ti (and by that time they will be a little cheaper).

    I think I will hold off for a bit. I game at 1440p and my 1080TI blows most games out of the water (including my rig). Though my MB is quite old now and would like to upgrade in the future, BUT that being said the next time I upgrade anything will be a near full rebuild. New motherboard, CPU, RAM and GPU. PSU is still good. Oh and case I suppose.

    Lets see how the cards get with newer drivers. As for SLI, like some of you know - once I went to a single strong card I just cannot go back to SLI. Always had so many issues with it including OC'ing.

    The new abilities of these cards look promising.

    As for the price - yes it is expensive, but if you can comfortably afford it - why not? But my advice to fellow 1080TI owners is hold off for a bit unless you REALLY need 4k potential.

    Anyone receive their 2080ti FE yet? I received the Nvlink bridge so far and waiting on the cards. I know they were pushed back a week.

    Anyone have this card yet and playing shadow of the tomb raider? Curious as to what settings it can play 4k 60fps at. I was hoping for everything maxed with maybe normal shadows and smaa (or dlss whenever that comes out).

    An analogy with dirty clothes is just perfect. However the best point they make is that in most of those demos, modern "cheating the Ray Tracing" techniques, aren't used, they are turned off for maximum "wow" effect. When in reality comparison should be made in an "apples to apples+1 new apple" fashion.
