    RTX 2080 Ti Die Size, Ft. Der8auer (& EVGA XC2 Ultra)
    Gamers Nexus
    Published on Aug 21, 2018
    We took apart the EVGA XC2 Ultra and FTW3 video cards at Gamescom 2018, using the RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 2080 GPUs, respectively.

    This features the new RTX 2080 Ti GPU on the EVGA XC2 Ultra video card, including die shot, die size, and one Mr. Der8auer. The 2080 Ti GPU is sized at ~775mm^2, as we show in this video, and is one of the biggest NV GPUs ever made.

    GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, 2080 & 2070: My Honest Opinion

    EVGA RTX2080 and RTX2080Ti Hands-On!

    Published on Aug 21, 2018
    Soon after the official NVIDIA RTX 20XX launch, it was inevitable that AIB partners would be showing off their own custom versions of the cards. With this, we stopped by EVGA on the Caseking booth at Gamescom 2018 to check out the three models that they had on display. The dual fan RTX 2080, FTW3 triple fan RTX 2080 and the dual fan RTX 2080Ti.

    Hey, if I can get a new EVGA 1080Ti SC2 to match the one I already have for like $500-$600 or so, I would jump on that. No need to rush out and pay a stupid price for a new GPU when I can rack up a butt-load of points on HWBOT with 1080Ti SLI. The more desperate they become to sell off obsolete stock left on hand the better off I will be, LOL.

    If RTX 2080 Ti turns out to be extra special, I can always do that later on. No need to get in a hurry.

    I just keep thinking: If performance was really that great over pascal, they'd be flogging that. Not new features.

    4K 144Hz is embryonic as is RT. Simply put, Pascal is powerful enough in its current form and this is a release because Nvidia need a hype train to keep their YoY sales up, not because gamers want something newer and better.

    Why they have priced it so high then? Because they have no competition obviously, but I think they may have misjudged the hype and desperation amongst the market.

    The Ray tracing enabled games will be overly reflective just like everything was when specular lighting and bump maps started being a thing. Think Doom 3... No duct tape or dust on Mars, plenty of polish tho

    GPU Prices Plunge: GTX 1080 Ti Now $526
    by Avram Piltch August 21, 2018 at 8:00 AM

    "The king is dead. Long live the king.

    With Nvidia's new RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti due out next month and the RTX 2070 coming in October, the prices on the current-gen 10-series cards are already dropping like a rock. And we expect even more discounts as we move closer to launch.

    Zotac has been particularly aggressive with its deals on Amazon. As of this writing, you can get aZotac GTX 1080 Ti card for just $526, reduced from $679. Remember that, just a few weeks ago, you had to pay $850 to $1,000 for GTX 1080 Ti cards.

    If you want a GTX 1080, you'll find one for a mere $449 and a GTX 1070 for just $296.

    We'll update this page as more deals on Nvidia-powered cards appear.

    Geforce RTX 2080 Ti: Raytracing-Performance in Shadow of the Tomb Raider (Off-screen-Gameplay)

    PC Games Hardware
    Published on Aug 21, 2018
    Wir haben Shadow of the Tomb Raider mit Raytracing auf einer Geforce RTX 2080 Ti ausprobiert und zeigen im Video die Bilder pro Sekunde bei Full HD und vermutlich in höchster Detailstufe. Wichtig: Es handelt sich hier keinesfalls um eine finale Version von Shadow of the Tomb Raider, die Entwickler haben bereits bestätigt, dass das Spiel zum Release noch ohne Raytracing-Funktionen erscheint. Die Raytraced-Schatten werden per Patch nach Release nachgereicht.

    I don't remember Doom 3 being overly reflective. I remember it having some nice bump maps, but it was pretty dark for the most part, which was actually the perfect showcase for the unified lightning and shadowing system when the lights came on. The shadows were all hard-edged stencil shadows, but they were very accurate. Your flashlight and muzzle flashes all cast dynamic shadows, which was insane for the time. The game from that era which I remember being overly reflective was Half-Life 2.
