2080 ti test

If those are real, most likely with premature drivers

I have to believe that nvidia is shooting themselves in the foot. Also, why would they even release premature drivers unless they came up with this crazy system until just recently? Are the leaks using GTX1080 drivers or something (possibly Titan V)?

Apparently nvidia is convinced the faithful will ignore leaks of unapproved sources of information and only accept those that swore to only tell nvidia's side of the story in return for samples and official drivers.

Actually everything depends if those GTX 1080TI numbers are accurate.

Because the RTX 2080 Ti will be definitely faster than the GTX 1080Ti, otherwise Nvidia wouldn't bothered to make new gen. GPU that would had the exact same performance as his the previous fastest consumer chip.

I mean that sounds logical right?

And as you can see, the GTX 1080Ti is a very capable 4K gaming GPU, and if you lower the settings to high (on some games that are very demanding even for a GTX 1080Ti) there is no need for an upgrade.

Of course that also means (if those GTX 1080Ti numbers are accurate) that the GTX 1080Ti is the perfect GPU for 1440p and 1080p gaming (including the high refresh Monitors for the later)

So, everything comes down to what ray tracing has to offer, and if the game developers will use that feature on their games for making a RTX 2080Ti a worthy purchase.

We had similar over hyped GPU features like Nvidia Hairworks, but as it seems it's abandoned for good.

Because let's face it, except the greater performance an aftermarket RTX 2080Ti may cost over $1200!

Those benchmarks above tell us one more thing.

That the RTX 2080 should be almost as fast as the GTX 1080Ti.

And lastly, the price of an aftermarket RTX 2080 should come near to $850.

In comparison, you can find a GTX 1080TI for ~$600.

"Because the RTX 2080 Ti will be definitely faster than the GTX 1080Ti, otherwise Nvidia wouldn't bothered to make new gen. GPU that would had the exact same performance as his the previous fastest consumer chip."

Nvidia has clearly stated that the whole point of these boards are "RTX technology". They are willing to show the thing delivering 30fps at 1080 (while including some raytracing) but are adding never before seen locks to make absolutely sure that no real numbers leak out between taking customer money and delivering said boards. The raw shading FLOPS certainly appear to at least line up right to your assumptions, but still doesn't justify the secrecy and control nvidia feels necessary to hide exactly what these cards actually do.

They forced a lot of GTX stock on their resellers, maybe they don't want to "Osborne" them to death (although I can't see many resellers dumping nvidia over anything).

Nvidia does that with every new GPU gen. and other manufacturers as Intel and AMD does that too.

So yeah, you should wait for the real benchmarks to come out to make your final conclusion, but the RTX 2080Ti will be definitely faster than the GTX 1080Ti.

The problem is, as far as the lower resolutions concerns (<4K), does the additional performance of that GPU justify the huge starting price?

This seems a bit much. I also can't remember ever hearing of specific accounts required to download drivers tied to your specific board. Perhaps they are tired of people flashing boards with "pro" bioses. It also looks like the 2080ti is the same chip as the "pro Turing" meaning that flashing the bios could make a huge difference in raytracing power (several thousand dollar differences).

I don't recall Intel and AMD expecting fans to pre-order a month in advance and refuse to give any form of benchmarks other than "it's twice as fast. Trust us."
