    "Nvidia has brought out a card that makes them look refreshed without actually doing anything, and at the same time forces partners to dump old stock and redo all their cards"

    I'd be annoyed but I can't really blame em. Would you push for innovation, costing literal billions, when nobody but yourself is forcing it ? My only hope is someone comes at them like AMD did Intel and take a massive chunk of flesh from their thigh while they were standing around admiring the view of their empire.


    (Bit much that..but you get the drift)

    A time old argument used again and again and really explains why I have quit gaming/pc building so many times. Everyone wishes for competition in the market, show me a market where there is 'truly' competitive pricing/development and I'll bet its not and your silly if you think there are any. AMD probably spend more money paying Nvidia and vice versa for research and assets and stuff. They both have a stake in the market and so if you think about it, why would either really pursue major revolutions which would potentially eliminate profits? Nobody would need to buy a new gpu/cpu every year for a start.
    Every couple of years the big players fall out. Looks like at the moment AMD has been 'given' the lead, but its all false(improvements) to sell more stuff. Its all greed. If AMD is truly independent from intel then why are their current gains on the 7nm crap/minor/worth a buy but not revolutionary in comparison to intels current batch on the 14nm die? It makes no sense at all unless you agree its as free as the chicken i ate last sunday!

    I seriously doubt you spend any money on PC parts. You clearly spend it all on tinfoil clothing.

    Cool, anyone stupid enough to buy a 2080 will now get slightly better out-of-the-box performance (and that matters because the people buying these don't care, or know how, to overclock).

    When are we going to get 1080p cards?

    What a boring release. Feel bad for reviewers taking time out of their day for this.

    Some people got the 2080 because it was the right balance for the system at the time without being overkill. I guess it depends on your usage scenario and your disposable income, I'd probably have gone for the 2080Ti if I was only upgrading my graphics card, however I was upgrading the entire system at the time (literally everything aside from the case, which still got upgrades itself).

    It doesn't make people stupid.

    Hello? Ah, nVidia, you're selling bridges you say?

    Have you considered using the 5700 XT, rendering games at 1880p, and using the new Radeon Image Sharpening feature to sharpen at 4k? I've seen several videos on YouTube going over RIS and comparing upscaled-to-4k to native 4k, and by all accounts, it's really great. They say you can barely tell the difference visually, while you get much better performance.

    Re: Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Super Founders Edition

    There is one thing that I haven't given nVidia credit for, which I shall do now: At least they didn't rebrand these chips as a new series. I think keeping the model numbers and making the word 'super' mean sometimes very different things is not very transparent, but it's better than them releasing these new chips as 3080s etc.
