    Rumour: Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti looks to have beastly performance

    And RTX 2080 not too far behind, according to rumours.

    I wonder how big the chip is?? Will be the first time in a long time if Nvidia launches a new range with a largish chip first.

    Re: Rumour: Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti looks to have beastly performance

    So, after 2 years of sucking e-mining industry they will just show that?
    I am heavily underwhelmed and I guess there will be more disappointment. My shot for the prices is 2080 at $649 and 2080 Ti at $799 to from one hand show that the 2080 is cheaper than the best card from last generation and also to silently increase the overall pricing.
    I also guess that they will tweak driver so the 2080 meets 1080 Ti in benchmarks like tend to do.

    So again, the numbers do stack up - however it is not a very great for us customers.

    I waited 2 years for the GPU upgrade and now, i don't know if i want to do that any longer - maybe its time to get a console for a half of the price of GPU card alone and forget this industry?

    Indeed, DevDrake. Nvidia is doing exactly that, i.e. eliminating the average gamer, and in turn hurting PC gaming immeasurably and irreversibly. The RTX brand (hence technology) are going to be exclusive to high-end buyers only, and so the majority of customers will be left out. In the meantime AMD is doing zero, and in my view is times more contributing to the awful state of affairs.

    My guess would be $899-$999 for the 2080 and $1149-$1249 for the 2080Ti.

    I'm beginning to think you may well be right, especially in light of the additional cost of DRAM.

    Re: Rumour: Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti looks to have beastly performance

    Nvidia have no competition at the high end, so why would anyone expect anything more than an incremental increase in performance?

    This is Intel, pre-Ryzen, all over again.

    Isn't there also a lot of talk about Nvidia raising the launch price, to minimise reductions in the prices of the 10xx series?

    Not sure exactly what product (one of the Quadro's/2080/Ti?) but in the recent Siggraph keynotes they had a slide that showed it to be 754mm2.

    AMD have pretty much made it clear that Nvidia can do what they like at the top end. They're still competitive in the mid-low end range. RX 580 is pretty equivalent to a 1060 at the same price. AMDs prices were inflated more by the mining craze. The problem is the mindset. Too many people don't even consider AMD, they just go for the Nvidia card at their budget and are just making the situation worse in the long run.

    To be fair to AMD they have less money and have pulled a rabbit out of the hat with Ryzen. We could argue that they might get back in the game - but that's a huge ask

    If we need to wait for them to be complecent, as intel did, it really could be a long time as Nvidia are successfully branching into other markets (most notably ones relating to AI) to drive their business forward.

    Intel just sat on their data centre and enterprise market share making half arsed stabs at ventures into other industries for a long, long time.

    No argument from me! But AMD still managed to do a good job CPU wise...
    Debating this is bound to be a complex issue. All I wish for is some reasonable competition across all the market segments

    Please, please, PRETTY PLEASE, don't buy it. Buy none of the new cards. This is the one and only way to MAKE them lower the price and, as we all know nVidia are making a lot of profit, of our purchases.

    It's madness. $1,000 for a graphics card? Are we that silly?

    They have kept everyone waiting so long that these things will sell like hot cakes. There is nothing that can be done about this, we just have to hope AMD and Intel have some kind of response in the near future (unlikely...)
