Congratulations Nvidia. Last time you got a '[email protected]!k off' and this time you have earned a 'super [email protected]!k off'

This.

Nvidia lost me as a customer when they went from a £699 1080 Ti to a £1199 2080 Ti which was only 27% faster on average.

Agreed.
I think turing gets a lot of hate, but it's actually decent architecture. 30ish% on the same process node. impressive.

What does deserve hate is the pricing!

To be fair, they achieved those ~30% gains by making the dies ~50% larger, so it was far from a free gain. Ofc that increased die size also went heavily to non-shader units this time around, the features cost NVidia money to implement so in a way it makes sense they cost consumers too, but if most consumers can't use the features yet then they're obviously not going to assign as much value to them as they cost in materials, so it's still a bad business move for NVidia as most consumers probably would have preferred "low fat Turing" upto higher pricing tiers for better value on existing titles, but conversely I'd say it's probably a relatively good one for the industry as developers will have had earlier motivation to commit resources to DXR as a result of the much wider spread of hardware accelerated DXR cards on the market and have had a much wider audience to test & receive feedback from especially in lower resource situations.

Essentially I think the annoyance was primarily with the fact some consumers felt they had little viable alternative at Turings launch, so they didn't really have a choice in whether they assigned value to the genuinely fairly expensive features, but of course everyone has the choice of just, not upgrading(If they didn't fancy what AMD had), which I'm sure NVidia weighed up when they took the risk of full fat Turing for mainstream consumer cards.

As things move forward Turing's performance gap with Pascal will get wider.

Many games on modern engines make great use of Turing's performance enhancing features, with Forza Horizon 4 and RAGE 2 being great examples of this. In RAGE 2 the RTX 2060 can easily best a GTX 1080 by a significant margin.

That said, there are game engines where Turing doesn't have much impact, which is why the architecture gets a bad name. It's forward-looking nature does it no favours in older games.

Rage 2 is bland from what I read and I can play Forza on my xb1x.

Wherever am I getting £1200 worth?

I've had more fun playing fallout 3 enhanced over the past few days than when, well, I last played fallout 3. Sure the graphics are a bit crap but holy balls I forgot what a good fallout game feels like. I ran two batteries flat yesterday playing it, a first for me.

Blame the people who keep buying it. That's the worst part
