GTX -- er RTX -- 2080 & 2080Ti launching at once

Fri Aug 17, 2018 12:50 pm

So it's not much of a shock that we are nearing the launch of the GRTX 2080 using the mid-sized Turing silicon.

However, what's more interesting is that it looks like the RTX 2080Ti using the big Turing silicon is going to launch at about the same time instead of being delayed like Nvidia has traditionally done in the past.

Here's some Videocardz info on the RTX 2080Ti: https://videocardz.com/77369/nvidia-gef ... cuda-cores
4770K @ 4.7 GHz; 32GB DDR3-2133; GTX-1080 sold and back to hipster IGP!; 512GB 840 Pro (2x); Fractal Define XL-R2; NZXT Kraken-X60

The TU104 chip looks kinda big for a 104 class graphics card. At first glance I thought I saw 2080 Ti but then noticed the 256 bit interface.
Nvidia seems to be betting pretty heavily on ray tracing and RT cores alongside AI acceleration by Tensor cores. It would be interesting to see if any upcoming titles implement these.

Edit: Here's my guess. Since Nvidia really loves charging a premium, they'll release a Titan RTX for at least $999 alongside a 2080 for $649 or $699. That way, both parts would be meaningfully separated in terms of price. Who knows? Maybe they would release the 2080 Ti for $999 and clear things up for us. All I know is, Nvidia is unlikely to launch a 2080 with such a large die below 500 and release the big daddy for 700, especially at the launch of a brand new architecture (1080 Ti was based on the year old Pascal architecture when released).

I love guessing games. I'll make a guess:

RTX Titan $1100
2080Ti $900
2080 $700
2070 $550

They're all going to massively outperform the 1080 and maybe even the 1080Ti so no reason to bring the prices down. Unless, that is, Nvidia has some sort of vendetta against AMD and wants to put them in the ground.

Sadly, it's still not over nine-thousand.

That 2080 Ti price strikes me as a bit steep as you can get the Titan for 1100. But hey, at least it's not over 9000!
Here's my guess:
Titan RTX: $1200
RTX 2080: $700
RTX 2070: $450
RTX 2060: ~$330
I'm interested to see what the 2060 delivers. If they can pull another 1060 and match the previous gen high end (e.g. 980, 1080), it would be interesting to see how AMD would react.

I've been holding out for the 2070 or 2080 for 8 months, since Nvidia is a bit behind their normal 18-20 month release cycle. I really want a 2080 but if its over $650, I will have to settle for a 2070. I really doubt the TI gets released at exactly the same time as the 2080 because as others said they love charging a premium it makes more sense for them to wait at least 6 months. That also allows them to have make waves and keep their name in the press with a new product announcement.

:lol: whoops. Fixed that price.

Meh... I got tired of waiting. Newegg had an EVGA GTX 1080 FTW for $429 and I figured the next gen would be hard pressed to beat that on a $/performance level.

I did get to bump up the VR setting in Elite Dangerous quite nicely and BF1 runs at a locked 144fps on Ultra with a 1080p G-sync. All this ray tracing is nice but I don't see it being seriously implemented in the next 2 years, about the time I might be ready to upgrade...

Yeah, it seemed like they were really hard-selling on the whole ray tracing thing.

I feel like the new AA replacement will be the true killer feature. Better IQ and a speedup would be huge.
