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 all
       
      I have a Clevo P370EM3 laptop with a pair of GTX 680Ms in SLI mode and have never been able to get Linux to work properly with full acceleration and without tearing. I have tried every xorg config I can find, and even all the modifications from the nvidia configurator to no avail. Has anyone been able to get these things to work 100% in Linux? I have typically used ubuntu based distros, including Mint, and every available driver version from the repositories, but can never get it to work quite right.
       
      Thanks for any help anyone can provide. It is killing me to run Windows on this machine because of these issues, and I am almost to the point of installing the inferior 7970 cards.
       
      Have a great day

      Help! I created a BOS BOOT DISK and use legacy to boot in DOS.   But it is saying that "An operating system wasn't found".   I have extracted all the files (the alienware m18x r2 a11 unlocked bios) into my external hard drive (format: NTFS)

      Hi,
       
      I read a lot of different threads about the maximum possible M17X R2 configuration. But after I was more and more irritated.
       
      What is at the end the best performant GPU solution (with unlocked bios and dirver mod) but WITHOUT manual fan control and such things. Because if I want to sell one day my M17X R2 I don't want to explain and force the buyer to control the GPU fan per hand.
