I appreciate that, guru!
So now that 1080ti is out of the question,basically sold out or too high new, 2080RTX is the next best thing for ~ 680-750€. Not willing to pay 1200€ for a 2080Ti, no waaay. Although I said here 2080ti or bust.
I looked at this, seems to be a very solid card judging by this German review,
also keeps it cool bellow 70C, but dunno.. Think I'll wait a bit longer if ti goes down a little bit more.. atm goes from 679-740€
EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti FTW3 ULTRA GAMING, 11G-P4-2487-KR, 11GB GDDR6, iCX2 & RGB LED
If I can find 1 in Canada, this is the 1 I want.
I love my Gigabyte Gaming OC 1080Ti , for $629.00 new , got the best of both worlds .
I sold off a GTX 560 Ti, GTX 570 and GTX 1060 and bought a MSI RTX 2070 Gaming Z.
I would have liked the 2080 or 2080 Ti, but pricing was indeed the bottom line. Of course I still had to pay quite a bit.
I really like it. I need to upgrade my CPU as now it is holding back my GPU some.
A 1080 Ti might have been a better buy, dollar wise.
I like the Aorus RTX line.
I would probably go with 2080 Extreme if i was about to buy an RTX card. Looks amazing.
The entire RTX lineup is just such poor value. I ended up convincing several different people to buy a new 1080 Ti when it was going for 650 US, instead of buying the RTX 2080. I said that it would be the first card to sell out completely, and also the first one to go up to insane pricing. Most of them bought the EVGA 1080 Ti SC2, and a few managed to get the FTW3. None of them feel like they were ripped off. They have all seen the reviews. The aftermarket 1080 Ti cards and aftermarket RTX 2080 cards are the exact same speed. At 800-850 bucks, the RTX 2080 makes no sense. Nvidia needs to stop ripping people off. Paying 1200-1300 for a 2080 Ti is nonsense. It offers only a 30 percent increase over a 1080 Ti, yet costs 75-85 percent more money. Nvidia seems to think that replacement models in the product stack now need to cost 60-85 percent more than the previous gen. They are going to have a very hard time convincing midrange gamers that they should pay 400 for an RTX 2060 instead of 250. They deserve all of the backlash they are receiving. AMD is no saint here either. They release a pointless RX 590, and still have nothing to offer in the upper mid to high end tiers. To this day, they can't even match a 1080 Ti. People are excited about what AMD will be showing in January. I am certain that the CPUs are going to be an awesome step forward, no doubt about it. I am not at all convinced though about their upcoming GPUs. I think all they will offer for "high end" GPUs is an equivalent to the RTX 2070, and priced at 400 US or so. Sure, this will sell, since it is way cheaper. It still does not address those people who are only interested in top end cards at realistic and fair prices. What AMD needs is to come out with something at 700 US that competes with an RTX 2080 Ti, but there is just no way that this is going to happen. If it did though, AMD would make a fortune. So many people are pissed right off with Nvidia, and this has resulted in them losing quite a bit of mindshare. This is something that AMD needs to take advantage of, but I don't see it happening in the high end.
I'll skip this gen.
I love the TI, but the price is just too high. Got the EVGA RTX 2080 XC Gaming...pretty pleased with the performance. In direct X 12, it blows away my 1080 TI. Direct X 11, it ties it
Any Oc on card or vanilla factory OC?
@DW75 We don't know yet what AMD will be offering in 2019, whether it's more AMD hype, or an actual offering. My contacts tell me it's more of an offering, having used this large lull of time from releasing a new chip to develop something that will offer performance. But this can also be more speculation on their part, so :shrug:
Let's keep the speculation to a minimum, and wait for more info. BTW, please use paragraphs in the furture, wall of text is hard to read.
