    Honestly, I'd have liked to have seen the GPU offered as both RTX and GTX Versions... RTX like what we have and a NON Ray-Tracing GTX Version... Could in theory have THREE Classes; GTX, RTX, and Titan... Dang, What would the Titan cost?!? My Wallet is Scared...

    Is the RTX 2080 Ti a "grass greener on the other side" type scenario? Or are you enjoying it?

    As far as RT goes it's simple... It's new tech with new drivers... Things will improve with new drivers and as Devs learn how to better implement RT into games... I don't for-see miracles but marginal improvement over the course of maturing drivers... I''d be curious to see info on 9xx and 1xxx...

    Aliasing depends by only PPI ?

    If you measure by PPI² (pixel per square inch) you get a roughly 22% difference... 23" 1920*1080 = 9174 PPI² = 77.52% 29" 2560*1080 = 9180 PPI² = 77.57% 27" 2560*1440 = 11834 PPI² = 100% This might explain it...
