I never regret my purchases. Nor have the urge to upgrade in the short term. I only upgraded from a GTX1070 to a GTX1070Ti after a few months because I practically got it for free. I skipped Turing. I figured 1st gen RTX was going to be a mess and I wasn't wrong. Now its much better thanks to...
Are you talking abou DirectML?
AFAIK, its already on DX12, don't know why nobody uses it. I recall MS demoed Forza using it on a GTX1080Ti (I think) even before DLSS came out a couple of years ago or so.
It really depends on how serious you are with streaming.
Actually you don't even need a capture card for streaming, the GTX1080Ti is more than capable by itself. My kid has done some streaming only with a GTX1070Ti
But if you want to do PiP and interactions, green screen and stuff, then a 2nd...
I find it really funny when people invest on a high end card to last for a long time, yet complain when nothing else comes out that makes them want to upgrade. :D:D:rolleyes::rolleyes:
OP you did fine, your purchase lasted a whole new generation, now get ready for Ampere/Big Navi.
I have little doubt that Big Navi will at the very least match Turing in RT, but Ampere? I just don't see that happening.
The AMD ray tracing demo doesn't put Big Navi anywhere close to what nvidia has shown (heck I'd say it looks worse than the old Larrabee demos), but since is not on final...
Just like people didn't need shaders, AF, ambient occlusion, etc., etc. :D:D:D
I'm not yet sold on RT, but its been really long time in coming. I'll keep an eye on it and see what ampere brings to the table.
That's funny, I suggested that nvidia did that, back when RTX was first introduced.
either a separate card or a separate chip.
we might end up getting both
btw that would explain why the cards are power hungry in spite of the smaller manufacturing process.
