    We should note that NVIDIA will enable DLSS in games for developers for free, if a dev just sends them their code for processing on an NVIDIA DGX supercomputer. NVIDIA will hand back that code, which is reportedly just megabytes in incremental size, and enable the feature in their driver for that game. And, as with anything AI and machine learning, the more you feed the beast, the better it gets at the task at hand moving forward, in this case with a wider swath of game engines and visuals

    So games can easily enable DLSS?! Isn't that a big deal?

    A supersampled game will run 2x with the new cards! Am I wrong about this?

    That is a huge deal, plus you can expect every AAA game released moving forward to have this done, I mean it's free and it's extra marketing. Nvidia will be pushing this HARD.

    @Techy111 - I really believe the prices will drop in a few months. By then I'll see the benchmarks and can decide if I should get one. It would have to be the 80% faster then a Geforce 1080 or I'm not getting it. I'll then wait for the Geforce 7nm..

    I might be tempted to get a 2080Ti if it was 700 quid or so but won't go anywhere near paying more for that I think.

    I think they are going to come down in price in a few months to something like £999, but sod even paying that for one. It might be a long wait, but I'm not paying a penny more then £799 for a Geforce 2080Ti. I forgot how much I paid for the Geforce 1080, but I remember it taking me a couple of weeks to recover and a year to pay for it.. :D

    Congrats  :) - For a few seconds the current 2080 Ti prices did make me hesitate purchasing Swampy, but I think Swampy has some awesome graphics - and if I set up some great lighting I might be able to trace the light rays and experience fantastic realtime shadows! Swampy will be hit by 25% VAT plus $100+ for shipping, so it'll be at least 1.1k and being 24" tall it'll be IMPOSSIBLE to hide him from the wife (and Swampy's WAF is extremely low :blush: ) - so 2080 Ti wins the highest price + ability-to-hide-it-from-the-wife battles for now  ;) But let's see in 20 years who sells for the most on eBay  :D

    I might get a 2080 Ti later too - I'm still waiting for reviews.

    @Techy111 - I'm thinking of putting a empty box of Corn Flakes on ebay, I've just got to finish eating the Corn Flakes first. I'm going to start the bidding at 25p, but I'm open to offers..
    Will it have a driving licence in it?

    I'm sure that's where most people round here get theirs.

    Howcome everyone talks about going for 2080 TI at £1200?

    Whats wrong with just going for a 2080 for £750? 

    Seems to me that people just want to buy the ti just because they can but what is wrong with just going for a 2080 for half the price? Surely the 2080 is still an amazing card? They said it can do 4k and future proof for VR etc? That's the card I'm planning on buying. Why would you want or need better then a 2080?

    the 2080 may be a great card... but my worries with it (no one can be certain of anything at this point)

    my worry with it is that if NOT using tensor cores it is looking to be slower than a 1080ti (it has less cuda cores so this is not a crazy prediction)

    OTOH for RTX tombraider was running at around 50fps, dropping to the 40s and that was with a 2080ti @1080p .... the BF5 devs are *targetting* 60fps 1080p with RTX on.. .presumably again with a 2080ti.

    the RTX2080 may well be a great card, but without tensor cores support  in games i doubt it will be quicker than a 1080ti (its "only" £85 dearer so that may not worry you).... and also the jury is still out on whether it will be fast enough for Ray Tracing

    All that said i typed this all out and notice you asked this in the price comparison thread!.... you should prolly of asked in the other one. 

    (PS back on track  if you are going to pre-order one, the MSI  "Duke" looks pretty good at £715, gigabyte also have one at that price... better than paying £750 imo)

    I guess it depends what card they have now. People just want to have a really noticeable improvement. Sometimes it feels better to have a 30% improvement for £1200 than a 15% improvement for £750.


    I want a Ti but I’ll wait for prices to fall to MSRP levels (hopefully)

    Yeah true, I get your points. I currently have a 1060 so I feel like jumping to 2080 will be a massive increase. And yeah £715 sounds decent.

    I would never spend £750 on a card. I would never spend £500 on a card. Even if I had the cash to throw away. There's a limit to how much I will allow companies to overcharge me, and I won't let them rip me off by that much.

    I don't care how much research or technology has gone into it (that will likely be bugger-all use to me in any case). These cards could be a lot cheaper, but as long as the sheep of the world keep paying these silly prices, they won't come down.

    Already have a 1080ti so moving up to the 2080 is not really an option for me.

    your money etc etc but i personally would not even contemplate upgrading if i had a 1080ti!... that card should easily be good enough to see you through to the next gen imo, by which point there should be a lot more games out there supporting ray tracing.... and hopefully the new cards will have matured such that you wont have to compromise your resolution so much to run it.

    imo it is the people with the maxwell generation / or low end pascal looking to go up the ladder who will benefit from the new cards.
    as i said, to each their own however.....

    Yeah, these prices are really damping my enthusiasm. I have no doubt that ray tracing will eventually be too enticing not to have an RTX card, but I'm not sure that the performance (or the uptake from developers) will be there in the first generation of RTX.

    In 2014 I paid $650 CAD for a GTX980, which was the most I'd ever spent on a GPU (also my first "8" level card since the 8800GTX). Less than two years later I paid $850 CAD for a GTX1080 (I sold my 980 for $400, so that softened the blow). Now another two years on, I'm having trouble justifying another $270 price increase for a single-gen upgrade to the RTX2080 (never mind the RTX2080Ti, which is double the price of my 1080).

    Currently my 1080 handles everything I play, so I'm going to either wait until better prices come about, or perhaps I'll wait until the next gen to get an RTX. When CV2 comes along, depending on its requirements, that may influence my decision, but I suspect that the 1080 will still be plenty powerful for it.

    I am striving for [email protected] fps with high - max settings and the 1080ti just falls short in a number of games. I am hoping the 2080 Ti can manage it or at least can come close. Maybe I will be disappointed, maybe not. We shall see. Like I said, I expect at least a 30% improvement over the 1080ti which follows the track record of new Nvidia cards. The upgrade performance gain from the 1080 to the 1080 ti was ~ 30%. If the 2080 is 6% better than the 1080, then the 2080 Ti being 30% better than the 1080ti is not a far fetched desire.
