    I guess the real question will be how important will ray-tracing be? Especially as it's an nvidia exclusive currently.

    It smells a bit like PhysX - it looks really good, but even with nvidia cards, I landed up disabling it a lot of the time because it was just eye-candy that sacrificed frame rate.

    I cannot see:
    a) this card being faster at playing games that have raytracing on than off
    b) games being unplayable on cards that don't support raytracing

    Ergo - why would I pay the eye-watering amount for one?

    I'm never going to be in a market for a 2080, but from the reviews so far, I don't see a 2070 argument being any different.

    Like the graphics on the backplate, but how do you get to see it when it is fitted into a case.
    Thanks for the honest review.
    At the moment, it seems pointless upgrading from a decent GTX 10 series card to any of the RTX cards until they get both games which can use its features and some decent testing results to see if these are really worth almost twice the price.
