    Hi gurus,

    As the new RTX 2000 series is on the line, just wanted to create a poll to see how many will move to the new GPU. Indeed, the bottom line is PRICING.

    No intention of upgrading soon since I still use 1080p and plan to for a while.

    I will wait for 2080Ti with AIO. However if price will be 1400 Euro, I will pass on that and go for 2080.

    My 1080 do actually handle 3440x1440 ok, but i presume i will go for the ti after a while.
    But i think i will wait a while until all the fancy coolers and models are out and hopefully prices drop a little. I do not think we will get the shortages this time (do miners till exist?) and if we do i can wait.

    if the 2080 Ti is indeed 1000, i'll just wait for AMD even if i don't buy it by then prices should be a little bit lower for these.

    My main problem is my monitor is GSync, however is stutters some games so not that much of a loss, MHW is an example, i disable it and no more stutter.

    Anyway the GTX1080 is pretty meh, i'd never buy a normal 80 again.

    Plus i want 21:9 1440p minimum average 100FPS and pref 120, i doubt the RTX2080 will handle it, since even the 1080Ti has trouble, and as we move on things get heavier too.

    If the nvlink works in the sense that it makes the gpu's act as one gpu, meaning devs won't have to do any optimizing towards it, cause the game just sees them as 1 gpu, then i am buying 2x 2080 ti's on release !

    Due to lack of competition this is where GTX 1080 (Ti) pricing i think will still not decrement.Is the GTX 1080(Ti) powerful?! ......as AAA games are not available all round a year. The answer is yet to be "judged".
    However, the good thing is the 2nd hand market usually drops in price very fast.

    Nvidia(like INTEL) needs to learn who butters the rolls around here, I'm sure I may be alone on this but the price's will be sky high again as Crypto coin is creeping back up coincidence I think NOT!
    I voted none as thats what im buying......

    None....this year as i`d lose too much selling my 1080 which i haven't had more than 4 months, i cannot justify spending another £500 or so on a gpu that will only give me a few more fps when my 1080 meets its demand @1440p with maxed settings in the games i play.....Arma3, Ets2 and Mass effect Andromeda.

    The performance difference between a 2080 and 2080 Ti is probably going to be 40 percent or more. That is a pretty substantial jump. The 2080 specs are rather mediocre. It has been 27 months since Pascal was released. It is also disappointing that the TU104 appears to be only for the RTX 2080. The RTX 2070 is apparently going to be using the TU106, and the GTX 2060 will have the TU116. Nvidia has decided once again to downgrade each sku with a lower end GPU. This is the GTX 680 scenario happening all over again. Judging by the leaks, the performance improvements on this line up are just unacceptable for the asking prices. Come on, 1000 US for an RTX 2080 Ti. This is just nonsense. I am just going to get a 2080 Ti later when prices eventually drop. I might even just sell off my GTX 1080, and step up to a GTX 1080 Ti when the price drops at retailers in the next month. I refuse to buy used, as 90 percent of used market of midrange to high end video cards have been in mining rigs.

    i still have an i7 2600, i think i will upgrade that first, and since i'm doing a lot of multithreaded heavy cpu stuff im going to the new threadripper 2990wx or similar like an i9, so probably i'm going to wait till the 2080ti or even later or next gen, since i'm using a 2560x1080 75hz 21:9 monitor with a 1080 in need to upgrade that too, and RTX looks good, but probably wont be implemented to much in games yet like the async compute thing that ovehyped thing that amd fanboys still preach about but only 5 or 6 games games on all the 4 or 5 years that was marketed are really well implemente, that still is really unused on recent games so i will wait till more RTX games are out.

    Havent voted, wouldnt know without reviews, confirmed pricing. But if I cant get at least 70% performance gain over my 1070 for less than $500, I will just skip this gen. Got a million things to keep me entertained other than gaming, so can easily wait for long time.

    Wishful thinking, that won't happen.

    "skipping this gen" is not wishful thinking :D.

    I currently have a GTX 970, been enjoying it for a few years by now. But it has shown its "age" more often than I would like it to (or more than it "should" have, imo) since the past year or so (crazy to say that imo but heh... that's how fast technology improves; and how more juice more modern games ask for). There's a bunch of games where I can't get a constant 50 or 55+ FPS at "just" 1080p. Much less 60+ FPS. I can just take a game like The Witcher 3 as an example, can't get more than around 46 or 47 FPS in most outdoor locations on max settings at 1080p. It's 'playable', but situations like that do start to get old when they get more frequent over the years.

    I did want to upgrade to a 1070 but the prices early on were already too high anyway (even before the Bitcoin mining craze skyrocketed the prices). However, because of that I also had more time for saving a bit more money since I basically skipped the whole 10xx series. So I'm ready (financially) for a 2070. With that one I'm pretty sure that fast gaming at 1080p will be guaranteed in all possible scenarios from now and in the future (since obviously it's a card that will definitely be capable of performing well at 1440p).

    2080ti for me, but not at 800-850€+. I will wait a bit until it drops to ~650€.. so a couple of months xD

    2070 if only to keep up with the tech and also pricing.
    But I need a platform upgrade as well so more likely to do that before gpu.

    Really depends on rendering performance and price, in perfect scenario if RTX2080Ti will be faster by 20-30% than current 1080Ti then I will be getting RTX2080Ti

    This AI denoiser I think is implemented in IRAY and Octane where RTX range would be better choice, but I render with Cycles or SuperFly as well and when there RTX would be around 10-15% faster then not sure if I would be upgrading, as with Maxwell generation Titan X SC with 1469MHz OC in Cycles or SuperFly has been slower than my old GTX780Ti or Titan Black when I used SSS(Subsurface Scattering) due this I will wait on few benchmarks and then I decide

    Friend company will be getting few of them for sure for rendering in Octane and there shouldn't be a problem to do few benches

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura
