The Tech Report takes a look at the less of the two new Turing cards, the RTX 2080.  It has not been as well received as the 2080 Ti as it is very similar in performance to the GTX 1080 Ti.  One possible area which the new card might hold an advantage is in frametimes, with the new card providing smoother performance, as opposed to raw frames per second.  As their review shows, this is true in some cases but not all; see if your preferred games might benefit from the new RTX while we await releases which support the new features present on the RTX series.

"Nvidia's GeForce RTX 2080 brings Turing to a price point that's more accessible than the flagship RTX 2080 Ti. At $800, however, the Founders Edition card we're testing still has to contend with the GTX 1080 Ti in today's games. We see whether the RTX 2080 can establish a foothold as gamers await its future potential."

Not too bad for raster oriented gaming from the RTX 2080 against the 1080Ti but too bad for the wallet. So I'm seeing some triple fan GTX 1080Ti SKUs listed for around $620-$650 range and some dual fan SKUs even cheaper with a few questionable triple fan 1080Ti offerings below $600.

Really for raster gamers that already one GTX 1080Ti that's maybe tempting to add another and an SLI Bridge and game that way until Nvidia refreshes Turing/Newer At maybe 7nm! When that Happens I'll bet that the 12nm Turing/newer SKUs will come down in price.

It's that or wait for the first Gaming Benchmarks on the RTX 2080 that make use of all of Turing's AI/Raytracing and new Mesh Shader features.

I'm sure that Nvidia wants to get on TSMC's 7nm ASAP just to get more GPU DIEs/Wafer and better yields for any Turing Refreshes/Newer SKUs.

What makes you think the RIP OFF 2080 TI was well received?
Its outrageous release. A disgrace.

I guess they were factoring in the new tariffs, but No those prices are sure up there anyways!

RTX(Really Too eXpensive) but the Fools and their money flowing towards Nvidia's overflowing coffers!
