    Where is the 50% increase coming from? Looking at the 1080 specs vs the new 2080 it's no where close to 50% increase.

    nemoris, you obviously did not see the hype video.

    I was actually wrong it wont be 50 percent, it will be much much more.

    My source is directly from nvidia, and via that video I linked......if you don't think it's a big deal then I'm sure sprites to polygons was not a big deal to you aswell.....now I know nvidia always hypes their lineup, but we are talking the biggest leap in gaming history, and I stand by that.

    NVIDIA is my source

    I'm also reserving judgment for the benchmarks. The claimed multiple-times performance increase over the GTX 10 series is a little vague for me, but I have zero doubt it'll be faster.

    Either way - finally after over two years we have a new GPU from Nvidia.

    Thanks for the analysis Jensen :rolleyes:

    I'll wait for benchmarks. Raw TFLOPS have only increased marginally, so outside RTX workloads I'd be surprised if the uplift was actually that big. My guess:
    RTX 2070 = GTX 1080
    RTX 2080 = GTX 1080Ti
    RTX 2080Ti = 25% higher than 2080/1080Ti

    LOL.... i'm so sorry about yesterday guys, I was so excited I kept live posting...can't blame a guy when someone from nvidia says something like it will be 20 times more powerful than last generation....and yes the benchmarks are not out yet so I also will reserve judgement when they arrive.....I doubt it will be as big of a claim as nvidia has stated in the press conf..

    50 percent increase does seem likely though, nothing backing up that statement but why not..


    chareles is right it doesnt matter how much it will be an increase nevertheless

    Great, right when I'm planning to buy a high-end gaming laptop, the next gen graphics processor is announced. I was afraid this would happen. Now if I pay top-dollar for a GTX 1080 laptop I'll feel like a schmuck, and if I wait for the RTX 2080 who knows how long it'll be and I'll have to go even longer without gaming. Normally I'd have no problem waiting (I've had the same laptop for 10 years) but my gaming desktop is packed away in storage for the next six months and I'm going a little stir crazy here.

    @g85222456 Do you have any estimates when these cards might be available in an Aorus?
