    It's hard enough for me to see what's on the screen at 1920 x 1080 .... 4K would be even smaller.

    I know, it is very small.
    However, I would actually permanently down scale to 1440p/3k most of the time, or 4k with large fonts. I just dont have enough real estate with 1080p for mapping/GIS/web and even some spreadsheets and docs work.

    I have a 4K GS73. Apart from one or two older programs scaling has now been totally dealt with by Windows 10. I wouldn't go back to HD now and 4k is worth more to me than refresh rate.

    It seems very weird that it has this much power but no mention of better resolutions.

    Anyway prices are up in the UK. £2500 for the 2060. £3400 for the 2080. That's £900 purely for the card upgrade.

    And for a card that rumors suggest might not be much faster than a GTX 1080. Not the 1080 Ti, a standard run-of-the-mill 1080. Oof.

    Hey, our 1080s are not bad! They are still on the level of 2070s :p

    but yeah, I think the mobile versions of these new RTX will be less than expected. Perhaps the RTX2060 won't shine as it should either. I am still hopeful the RTX2080 max q will be near my normal GTX1080. So I am expecting around 35% perf loss over the desktop.

    Somehow I expect Nvidia / vendors will figure out a way to have the new GPU's at least 10%-15% better than the previous 10 series model. Max-Q to Max-Q, and full performance models too.

    There may be limitations preventing further OC to the full desktop performance, RTX mobile sales may be slowed, and people would buy the previous 10 series builds instead if the RTX mobile GPU's aren't significantly "better" in performance than the previous 10 series models.

    It could be that the 10 series will still be desirable in performance and lower cost, time will tell. :)

    Yes same for me. I get the gaming edge of 144Hz G-Sync for 1080p...but the higher res is what I need for work too. I would tend to use 4k and large font setting or something. Windows 10 would have it figured as you say, in Ubuntu 18.04+ it is also looking pretty nice. I have a current 3k 17" screen and is excellent for me. I think 3k's are being phased out and only 4k's being produced now. I still hope there is a GS75 4k version, even on RTX 2060.

    So the Max q 2080 is on par with a stock GTX 1080 that is found in the GT73/GT75.

    I wonder what % the RTX 2080 will have over the GTX 1080.
