    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.

    "At this stage, I've stopped caring because it's become a gimmick and even cards made for it aren't really doing raytracing properly so much as a very cut down version that actually runs real time."

    "Is this an Nvidia ploy to show us that our Pascal cards are no longer powerful enough? Not falling for it, don't need ray tracing."

    "Im sorry but ray tracing is a very underwhelming effect as of right now, its not worth the price of entry nor the performance hit, no amount of marketing or expanding of availability will get me to care"

    There has been a large delta in results between new owners and review results for laptop and desktop GPU's, so here's TechYesCity trying to figure out:

    Are Tech Reviewers getting sent GOLDEN SAMPLE RTX Cards....? Possibly.... (Investigation)

    After coming off the back of my RTX 2060 vs RTX 2070 Comparison, others were saying the numbers were off and the RTX 2060 OC should match an RTX 2070. Though after checking out all the samples on hand here, I found out some alarming differences that could indeed explain the variances that you are seeing between each reviewer out there. The Culprit? GPU Boost 4.0, though it's not necessarily a bad thing for the customer, more so a bad thing for testing a single card and drawing a conclusion from it. Here's why.

    And I thought that's like a hardware feature. Doesn't seem to be the case if they are bringing it to Pascal GPUs through a driver update. :rolleyes: Let alone the fact that Pascal GPUs cannot give good FPS while tracing is on if even the RTX GPUs can barely do it.

    To me, the RTX GPUs after a 3 year long wait for a better GPU are simply a slightly overclocked GTX GPU
