    I don't really have any need for RT, so this excites me, but I'll wait until I hear back on the -70/-80/-80ti and if they would go ahead with those or just leave them in the RTX range only.

    Funny you should mention that. I just posted this in another thread.

    Highly doubt we will see a 1170,1180,1180ti. I have the 2080ti FTW3 and honestly I never bought it for RT. I just enjoy those juicy 1440p frames on my PG279Q. Its a crazy powerful card.

    That's two now, you guys are really tempting me to get one. Especially since you're pretty much talking about my ideal display specs. (27"/144+Hz/2560x1440)

    I think this is what we're going to see happen in the notebook space. Maybe ultra-high-end DTRs will have a ray-tracing-capable GPU, but the majority of the market will get little more than faster versions of Pascal. That'll be fine if you're looking to upgrade from Maxwell or earlier, but there will be little reason to change if you already have a 10-series system.

    Its a beautiful thing! Now I just want a 2080 17” laptop with a 144hz 1440p thin bezel display. Bring on CES!

    And then ASUS goes and shows off a 240Hz laptop. What times we live in.
