    I'm afraid when AMD launches their offerings, they won't outperform 2080/2080TI... for me personally they'd have to beat the 1080TI (I don't expect them to do that except with their top card maybe), or force the prices on the 2080TI down (I don't expect that to happen at all).
    So all in all I think I won't upgrade my GPU in four years... which makes me silly enthusiast unhappy. That's why I'm hoping they'd drop prices down in 2019, but that would only work if the next RTX30xx series is already around the corner...

    Don't expect 7nm consumer GPUs before 2020. Also, prices are here to stay. Every ''premium'' product costs 1000$ or more now(Smartphone, GPU etc).

    Yes, I agree. Sadly...

    Prepare to maybe say goodbye to some of that resolution you're playing at :(

    For that I'd need to buy a new monitor, so spend even more to run 1080p? :D
    Or what did you have in mind?

    Well 1440p non-widescreen it is. But I'm running eye candy, I bought a gsync monitor for a reason. :D
    But I think any insecurity about how the pricing of the 2080TI as only upgrade (besides the Titan) that would make sense will develop will be solved, when the next series' 1080TI is released and we know for sure :D
    Don't get me wrong, I'd probably have bought a 2080TI when it was released if it only was 300€ cheaper, it's a great card, and I hope people love it for the sake of kick ass PC hardware geek loving, it's just... a personal point of view.

    I'm guessing 144Hz? :> Then sure, the 1080Ti is too weak to get those 144fps at all times :D (been there myself).

    I would have bought it as well for €300 less, no problem. If nVidia (or MSI or ASUS and so on), right now, would give me a €300 discount voucher for a 2080Ti I would instantly buy a card.

    Oh, yes of course, that too, 144Hz. Sure I can't get them with the 1080TI in games like BF5 for instance, but yeah Gsync, and also there's always the option not to play eye candy :D
    Yeah... I mean, I'd even go as far as saying I'd grab a watercooled card to put into my loop for 1.200$... but that's about the same situation, give me a voucher for 300$ discount to make that happen...

    Totally agree that eye candy is super important :D No eye candy - no play :D The Aorus water block looks ridiculously cool. If I had a water cooled system, I'd buy that.

    I've the EVGA SC Ultra, and while the cooling is good, if there's some AIO water-cooling solution released within next year i'm totally considering it.
    Those new cards runs hot and i like silence :oops:

    *Relieved* Buying the 2080-Ti was a huge financial bet for me, as i'm both working on a game and get some income from youtube.

    While i've been doing 100$ monthly from youtube for a couple years, back in september i really didn't felt like i needed to update my setup in any way nor did i planned a budget for it. But i knew that it would benefit my production with higher quality content to promote my game, and higher Youtube traffic from benchmark etc... with the 2080-Ti.
    Highest i had earned in a month on youtube was 450$ last december, so i thought i might be able to cover half the cost within the end of the year if i go 200% on youtube.
    Anyway, bought the card and spammed youtube content as much as i could for those last couple months, cut some monthly expenses and ended up making around 450$ monthly since october from youtube.
    Really feel relieved as i really didn't have the budget for it with my already tight budget and it stressed me so much for those last couple months.

    <- Happy gamedev :rolleyes:

    How do you make money from it, from views, ads?

    Ads. Posting gameplay from various games, but most my followers are Star Citizen backers and Unreal Engine devs.

    I put an ad. every 20min. which is rather fair when you see large channel putting 3 ads in 10-12min videos.

    This crysis video for instance brought over 100k views, made a bit less than 100$, was really cool for a single video. What counts more than views tho is watchtime, it's really the true indicator of how much you're gonna make. This crysis video for instance, people watched in average 2min40sec. , while most my Star Citizen gameplay videos, people watch for over 12min. which make them much more profitable:



    In comparison, this 23min. Star Citizen video was watched in average 4min., made 25k less views, yet brought around 150$. I did put 3 ads: start& end of video plus one in the middle:

    I probably wouldn't have bought mine either if I wasn't able to get so much back from my 1080ti. Glad I did though, great card overall for 4k and vr. I really need to get into youtube...feels like I'm missing out. I always assumed it was super hard to make money from.

    @XenthorX Imagine if Crysis became open source and the game got new maps/worlds, new 2018 physics and graphics, stories/missions/co-op as well as beastly AI, sound improvements practically everything kept evolving through the community. I'd imagine it would have been amazing.




    Imagine if in 5 - 10 years time Battle Royale games were 80+ players with such dense forrests like that runnning at 120+ fps. Using the trees etc to your advantage like it was jungle films.

    Imagine if at a point such dense foliage and shadows never became an fps drain with so many players in an area.

    Finally I have received my RTX 2080Ti which does looks like have Samsung VRAM chips,didn't tried on air what temperatures etc

    Got two waterblocks, one is EK RTX 2080Ti Vector Acetal Copper and second is Bykski RTX 2080Ti with display and backplate, on my build thinking go with EK reluctantly

    With bit of luck this weekend I should be running RTX and will be doing few tests etc and decide if I will keep it or will be putting this card to friend build

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    Just testing card on friend build Asus Maximus X Formula with 8086k as on my build I can't put there card as ports don't line up properly with my other GPUs and will need to rethink how to do run 1*GTX1080Ti and 2*GTX1080 and RTX 2080Ti together

    Using my EK RTX 2080Ti Vector Acetal Copper block, temperatures are not bad but expected bit better temperatures, tried NT-H1 and Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut and best temperatures getting with NT-H1 which is bit unexpected, temperatures are in 38-40°C

    OC +135MHz on core is max, +650MHz on VRAM, I expected again bit more on core for sure

    Tried MSI Afterburner 4.6.0 Beta 9 and OC scanner feature which works beautifully with default voltage, power limits and temp limit, but when I raise voltage, power limit to max, temp limit as well, both screens go black which is strange, I did leave PC turned on for more than hour and still screens are still black, fans are spinning and sometimes I see displays will turn on with no signal etc, did you have similar experience or issue?

    On friend loop there is EVGA P2 1200w I think and don't think is PSU as it is 3 months old

    Thanks, Jura
