    Considering 1080Ti can be bought for 650 quid, you'd have to be a right muppet to buy one of these.

    Re: Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2080 Gaming OC

    And I got my MSI 1080 TI Gaming the other week from OCuk for £599. And the only difference between this and the extreme version of the same card, is an amended BIOS with slightly higher clocks. And as MSI don't bin the GPU's. It's just a matter of installing Afterburner and sticking the clocks up to the same as the extreme version. Plus there's even more head room on top of this. So this I would have thought puts this card even closer performance wise (at least in current games) to the RTX 2080. The fans are unbelievably quiet, 70% before you start to hear them! And thank God, no noticeable coil whine. Happy days.

    PS. Just out of interest. I ran Time Spy at QHD and got 9,985. So with a bit more tweaking still to do with clocks on my card, I suspect I should be able to equal the score of the RTX 2080.

    While I'm sure the RTX 2080 is a nice card. £800 seems a lot to pay (I suppose £599 is as well really!) for the hope that the new bells and whistles will get universally adopted and provide a decent performance boost to pull away from the top tier previous gen card. And of course by then, the next generation of graphics cards will be just around the corner. Got to laugh really.

    Not really - its the other way around. Judging a brand new card which still has it's very first driver release and none of it's new tech activated is a bit daft. Give it a month or two until we start to see DLSS support and that performance gap is very likely to leap upwards. At that point the proposition is much more appealing. Regardless right now if you are looking to upgrade your GPU and you *don't* have a 1080ti, then the RTX2080 is the one to go for (assuming you can't afford/justify the ti ofc ). It's the ideal card for ultra settings 1440p gaming.

    However, you would be a bit of a muppet to pay £800 for one of these when for £50 less you can get a FE card with near identical performance (to the point where it doesn't matter - £50 for 15mhz higher boost and an uglier casing? hmm).

    Re: Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2080 Gaming OC

    Nah at under £600 the GTX1080TI is the one to go for but even a GTX1080TI is bad enough, but the GTX2080 makes it look better value which is saying something. Justifying the £700+ price is only telling Nvidia it's acceptable and that every other card under it should also increase in price too.

    A 70 series card is now nearly £600,so a 60 series card will also be pushed up to compensate. The RTX3000 series is going to be an utter bargain, right?

    It can fart unicorns out of its arse to compensate, but a 80 series card for £700+ its as appealing as getting your backside waxed with boiling hot wax.

    Re: Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2080 Gaming OC

    Now you keep using 1080 Ti FE as a refenrence for an After Market OC version of 2080. I can say that my asus 1080 Ti Strix OC gets 10450 graphic points in time spy and 28000 graphic score in firestrike. That is over the 2080 OC. Dont try to make the RT 20 series look good.

    https://www.3dmark.com/fs/16321945 - firestrike, it is sli so divide by 2 the graphic score
    https://www.3dmark.com/spy/4221424 - timespy, again it is sli so divide by 2 the graphic score

    Scandalously bad value really. You can get an Xbox One X for 4k gaming and a laptop for the price of one of these; I know it's apples to oranges but it's still pretty laughable when you think about it!
