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.

      I got a msi ge60 2pf Apache pro & its specs :
       
      Processor-i7 4710MQ
      Ram-16GB 
      VGA- GTX 860M 2GB Maxwell 
       
      Could anyone tell me the best overclock that I could use on this GPU?
      Please keep in mind that the voltage cannot be changed as this is a laptop
       
      Thank you

      i want to ask two favours and a question from this community ..
       
      1.) Can someone mod my 940 mx to increase the target temperature and allow higher overclocking than 135hzband voltage control
       
      2.) Allowing my i5 7200U to be undervolted to reduce overall heat 
       
      The question : I repasted my gpu and cpu cleaned it thoroughly, made sure twice everything is connected properly, use a cooling pad and yet the upper portion of my chasis above f1-f12 keys is so hot that i can roast peanuts on it. 
       
      (if i left out any info or missed something please reply i would really love to have a page that has everything for people who have this laptop specifically for light gaming.)

      Hi,
       
      I've recently got my hands on an M17x R4 Alienware Laptop from 2013 which I love. I've replaced the screen, keyboard, RAM, and hard drive to make it into a fully modern laptop. However, I'm currently waiting on a replacement for the 680m GPU with a 980m from ebay. My question for you all is, do I need to do anything with the BIOS to make this 980m work? Is there a way to prevent the laptop from using Intel HD Graphics with Optimus? I think the Intel HD Graphics on this laptop are currently broken as I see static-looking dots flash on the screen. (See image below for example). My theory is that because Intel HD Graphics with Optimus is still in-use while in-game, the dots are being caused by it.
       
      Thanks for any help in advance.

      Required items:
      1.) Lenovo u310 (I have a Core i3 - Ivy Bridge, 8GB RAM)
      2.) 65CN99WW unwhitelisted.
      3.) eGPU (I used a EVGA GTX 750 Ti from another computer I had).
      4.) EXP GDC mPCIe Edition adapter (got from eBay - banggood seller).
      5.) ATX power supply (I used a 600W PSU from another computer I had).
      6.) USB wireless.
      7.) External monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
       
      Steps:
      1.) Obtain and install a unwhitelisted BIOS. If you are unable to obtain a unwhitelist BIOS, I think it might be possible to bypass it with Tech Inferno Fan's Setup 1.x (may need confirmation as I haven't used it myself yet.)
      2.) Shutdown computer and remove all USB devices, ethernet cables, power cables, card reader cards.
      3.) Remove mPCIe wireless card and detach antennas.
       
       
      4.) Attach EXP GDC external mPCIe cable to the former wireless slot and screw down.
       
       
      5.) Attach HDMI end of the mPCIe cable adapter to the EXP GDC device.
       
       
      6.) Attach graphics card to the EXP GDC device (I moved my laptop off the desk and onto the side shelf to make room on the desk for the monitor/keyboard/mouse).
       
       
      7.) Using the power cable adapters that came with the EXP GDC device, I hooked in my ATX power supply's 20 pin and CPU 4 pin cables. Then hooked the other end (8 pin) into the EXP GDC device. My EVGA 750 Ti also required that I use an additional PCIe power cable (6 pin) in the top of the card.
       
       
       
       
       
      8.) Then I attached my misc devices (HDMI monitor, USB keyboard/mouse/wireless adapter), and hooked in my PSU and powered it on (below is image of final product, also moved HDMI cable out of the way).
       

       
      9.) Power on your computer and let it install the standard VGA drivers and then install your drivers (I didn't have to go in the BIOS for any graphics settings, which it doesn't have anyways, nor did I have to disable iGPU in Device Manager before the card was added).
       
      Extra Info:
      I found that most games will play on med settings with about 45 FPS with this particular card.
      BDO: Upscale on - Anti Aliasing on - SSAO off - med settings.
      Skyrim: Med-High settings.
      Fallout 4: Med settings.
