Do you plan to purchase an NVIDIA Turing GPU (RTX 2070/2080/2080 Ti)?

  1. 1. Do you plan to purchase an NVIDIA Turing GPU (RTX 2070/2080/2080 Ti)?

    • Yes I plan to purchase one of the new RTX GPUs or have already put in a pre-order for one.
    • I'm waiting on reviews/benchmark analysis before I make a decision.
    • I'm going to hold on to my current graphics card and wait on the 7nm cards to be released.
    • I don't plan to upgrade my GPU anytime soon.
    • I would upgrade but the price is too expensive so I can't afford it.
    • I want to see what AMD releases with their 7nm Navi.

So with the new Turing GPUs having been announced and up for purchase, do you plan to upgrade to one given the price increase of each segment? How important are the new ray tracing and dlss functions in making a purchasing decision for you?

I'm building a new PC so I need to get something, unfortunately.

 

This was an obvious strategy by nVidia to try to sell off their glut of 10 series cards by pricing RTX like they did.  1080ti prices have actually been going up, since those are in higher demand now.  I'll probably end up getting an RTX 2080 because at this point it's only marginally more expensive than a decent 1080ti.

 

Oh, and this whole "founders prices" stuff needs to stop.  We will never see RTX cards sell for the prices nVidia stated in their press conference ($699/$999).  All the partner cards are releasing at the founders prices, and there's no reason for nVidia to drop prices with no meaningful competition in the market from AMD or anyone else.  AMD doesn't have anything to compete with either RTX card or the 1080ti for that matter.

I have been using AMD for a while now got twin MSI Gaming x RX480 Radeons with a heavy overclock on a custom water cooling loop been loving the cards they are great not only for the pocket but if you have time up your sleeve you can fine tune and hit a really nice sweet spot.. Back on topic i don't feel it's necessary to spend over a grand on a GPU i would wait and see what AMD come out with at least you get some really decent performance and not gonna hurt you'r pockets.

I'm sitting running my Gigabyte HD7970, which is still chugging along in most games I play.

 

Unless I see an actual need to upgrade(or my computer blows up) then I'll be sticking around with my 2012 build for a couple more years.

      hello everyone, I have a MSI GT683R with a dying (pretty much dead actually) GTX560M in it.
       
      I am looking to upgrade it to a new GPU, I have found a AMD Firepro M6100. (I first wanted to upgrade to a GTX970M, but that's too expensive for now... and corona is also making things difficult) I have already ordered a second heatsink to modify because I didn't want to modify the original heatsink it came with.
       
      But, my question is. Does it even work in this system? I have heard of people getting it to work in the barebone variant of this system. But I am not sure if it would work in the 'fully loaded' variant.
       
      Also, my games are mostly RAM/CPU dependent and I am looking for a little extra power in this system. I have found a I7-2860qm and I want to upgrade to 32GB of RAM, is it possible on this system? the sticker says 'max. 16GB of RAM' But I have feeling it says that due to the limitation of the cpu that's already on this system (I7-2630QM, 16GB RAM max.)

      Following the release of NVIDIAs new 436.02 driver which I mentioned in an earlier article here, I've decided to make a quick and dirty video showing off NVIDIAs new Sharpen filter which is part of their Game Filter feature. It works with the most popular APIs including DX 9, 11, 12 and Vulkan and can be set on a per-game basis with granular settings of 0-100 unlike AMDs RIS which is limited to Navi and lacks DX 11 support.
