The cards do look really nice I'll give them that...

Translated from page 17:
We must also note that this implementation (of DLSS) requires cooperation with Nvidia, and we can imagine that there are conditions attached to developers. We still have to see whether this leads to restrictions, but for the time being a large list of twenty-five games is available that will support dlss. It is not known when the support will come. It is considerably shorter for raytracing, with currently ten announced games. As we can see from the benchmarks of the regular games, the extra price of the RTX cards really seems justifiable only if those DLS and raytracing-supporting games show a considerable performance gain compared to previous generations and on the other hand offer visual extras that other games or cards can not deliver.
This is the first time I'm hearing about improved AA... that's something I'd be more interested in at higher resolutions than RT I suppose.

This is GN's for 2080:
https://www.gamersnexus.net/hwrevie...ders-edition-review-benchmarks-vs-gtx-1080-ti

Seems like the regular 2080's arent much faster then 1080Ti's.
However the price is near the equal, so this is an OK investment IMO, if your looking for a good top tier video card.

This is for the 2080Ti : (no non youtube one yet)

And the 2080Ti is only roughly 22-23% faster then a 1080Ti @ almost double the price...
:T

That doesn't look like a sound investment at the moment.

The CUDA core deficit hurts the 2080 in legacy (DX11) titles and it's noticeably slower than a 1080 Ti AIB in those cases. But the there is a ~20% IPC improvement plus about 5-10% clockspeed improvement does benefit DX12/Vulkan loads (this basically carried over from Volta).

The main performance difference between 2080 cards it seems will be whether or not you got a good memory sample and are able to OC it faster.

Wrong. At 4K it’s a solid 35%-40% over 1080 TI.
These cards are for 4K, not CPU-bound 1440p.

gamers nexus points 20-23% increase.
Maybe that will increase with better drivers.

Other reputable sites also reporting the same with a roughly small increase.... again, may increase with better drivers.

However this is Nvidia were talking about... better drivers? (excuse me while i drop on the floor laughing a bit).... wont see them until WAYYYYYYYYY later....

And how is a pc cpu bound at 1440p and not cpu bound at 4k?

The game becomes GPU bound at 4k, at least most games do.

Take a 8700k at 5ghz vs a Ryzen 1600 at 4gz at 1440p with most games the 8700k will give you say 100 fps vs the 1600's 70fps using a gtx1080ti. For people with a 100hz monitor this is a big deal.

Imagine running a 2080ti with a Ryzen 1600 at 4ghz at 1440p you might get 65fps ,with a 8700k at 5ghz you would be over a 100fps.
That's CPU bound with a 1600.

Take the same game at 4k, and the frames would be much closer because you would be limited by the graphics card.

They’re doing it wrong or you’re looking at it wrong (looking at 1440p results or something).
Everywhere else is averaging 35%-40% improving at 2160p.

The cards are still too expensive. The 1080Ti was originally released at a price of $699. Cards do not go up in price only performance does.

LOL. Where have you been? GPU prices climb every single gen. Been that way since...GPUs. This time was a steeper, bigger hill.

GPU prices did not used to climb every single gen. That's a somewhat recent phenomenon

Wrong. They have climbed every single gen. Do some research.

It contradicts supply and demand. What we witnessed was hyper inflation due to the crypto currency mining market.

GPU prices barely climbed up until ~5 years ago, before I used to buy each generation GPU for ~$250-300 for mid-high end card. Going from a Voodoo2 to Voodoo3 to GeForce Ti4600 to 8800GTX to GTX480 were all similar in prices (same for some ATI/AMD cards, I remember the Radeon 770Pro, HD7770, HD5770 all costed similar), GTX5xx is when prices started going up and even greater with 10xx and now 20xx with a massive jump.

IMO I think 20xx price hike is a bit unjustified, and the fact that Nvidia raised them $100-200 after announcements....

If the cards sell well at those prices, then the prices are not too high for the market.

If the cards are actually priced too high for the market, they will not sell well, and prices will have to be reduced.

I'm beginning to suspect the first part of the latter.

This is only true if you run the founders edition. Almost everyone other than miners run AIB versions that are ~15% faster. I don't think it's helpful to compare to a card most people don't use.

AdoredTV's video review. Spoiler: the 1080 is faster than the 2080.
