Likewise, still this one will be a significant step up.

Looks good if you're a new cusatomer but not a jump from a 1080 Ti that is worth it which I'll stick with probably until either big Navi comes out or the 3080 Ti comes out, Although if Nvidia continue their insane £1200 pricing then it's a no go for me.

Ideally I want 2080ti performance for like $400 but I know that won't happen

I'm afraid we're in the wrong universe for that one

Checked prices here: €800! Yeah...don't think so...!

Yeah, it is disappointing that things are taking so long to move forward. Pascal lasted too long as a hardware generation and Nvidia likes fat margins.

It is nice that GTX 1080 class performance is now available very cheaply with the RTX 2060 and RX 5700, but anything higher than that and things start to get very expensive.

In the past, we probably would have seen two new hardware generations since the launch on Pascal. This time we only have one.

Hopefully things will change in 2020/21, as by then we should have some competition from both AMD and Intel to push Nvidia to do something. Big Navi would quickly change Nvidia's high-end pricing...

Then again, how often do you need 1080+ performance? It saves you from having to adjust settings, but even at 4K it performs like a champ with some effects turned down, which only have a minor effect on performance.

That will change as we move into the next generation of consoles. Things always move on.

I agree that the GTX 1080 can run a lot of games well at 4K, but things have changed a lot since that card launched.

I remember when people joked about people using a GTX 1080 at 1080p. Now some games can struggle to run at 1080p 60 at Ultra on a GTX 1080.

Feel like the 10 series didn't age well once RTX came along... "because Nvidia gimps drivers"



Seriously though the 1080ti is the only one that aged well it seems like for anything above 1080p. My 1080 at 1440p is just barely cutting it personally. In some games not at all, but I mostly just play Siege now which is not demanding at all so it's perfectly adequate(100-144fps).

That's my back-up and current plan: I don't buy games that require more than the little lady can give. The less I buy the more I save (suck on that Jensen). I'm honestly no bothered and in no hurry. Just got Forza Horizon 4 and it's all good.

I am not either. I am waiting for the next-gen cards personally. Hopefully AMD has something good. the 5700/XT are both great cards but just not the performance jump I want. I ideally am aiming for like 50% more performance than a 1080 but not more than $400. It'll probably quite a while for that.
