    Metro Exodus Has Stuttering Issues

    A game that has been released 24 hours and packed with new tech has technical issue? Really?? How can this be possible?? This is why I only start playing a game a few months after release... First, it is cheaper. Secondly, favors a more stable/mature experience.

    Should have bought a 1080 Ti

    An used 1080 Ti provides 5-10% less performance than a 2080 at half the price... 2080 features are not a factor in real life given the lack of support for RTX and DLSS ... I also suspect that the 2080 is not powerful enough to push RTX anyway... Depending on budget, I would go with either a...

    Best Current 55 " OLED PANEL for PC monitor on the market for the price?

    I have a 55" LG B7 and it is great... The differences between the B7/C7 and C8 are small so I would go with the older model if cheaper by more than ~$250 .

    EVGA to not make any more 1080Ti's?????

    Since 1080 ti has been discontinued by NVIDIA, EVGA will no longer be able to offer this product. Good deals to be found in the second hand market though.

    Is it worth it to upgrade from 7700k to 9700k for gaming?

    No. Keep money for a video card upgrade or dinner at a restaurant... the former is the bottleneck most of the times... I went from 5930K (@4.2GHZ) to 9700K and no impact was noticeable (this was not planned as my motherboard died) ... I went from 1080 ti to 2080 ti and noticed significant impact

    2080Ti price returning to earth a bit

    Yep, the hype train is slowing down. For those who paid $1,200+... well consider the $200 extra as a tax for being first adopters. Hopefully, $900-ish with a coupon may be a possible thing before the end of the year... :)

    Anyone else not give a single hoot about overclocking

    I overclock but relatively conservatively. For instance, my current CPU is overclocked from 3.5 to 4.2 (so 20%)... with very little additional voltage... temps are never exceeding 70C... and it took me very little time to achieve this. 4.4 or 4.5 is achievable but this would only have...

    I just bought a 1080ti, I'm going to hold out till 2019 for my next GPU, who's with me??

    I just bought an used (but like new) 1080 ti for ~40% of the price of a 2080 ti... I game at 4K but there is no way that I can justify paying much more money for only 30% increase in performance. My plan is to hold on my 1080 Ti until the 2080 Ti reaches a more reasonable price (~$900)

    Leaked: 2080Ti FE 39% faster than 1080Ti FE on average

    35-40% additional performance for 70% (vs new 1080 ti) or 125% (vs used 1080 ti) price increase is a no go for me. Let me be clear, I do not expect performance to scale linearly with price but NVIDIA stretches too much the law of diminishing returns with the 2080 ti. While I have great...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080Ti unable to run Shadow of the Tomb Raider with 60fps at 1080p with RTX On

    I am bugged by the fact that Ray Tracing will not be supported by more mainstream cards like the 2060 and is not supported by consoles. In the short term, developers will introduce this feature in a few games to help NVIDIA promoting their new cards but it seems unlikely that RT will gain...

    When will prices drop?

    We can agree that NVIDIA has set forward a strategy that maximizes profits. I suspect that the high prices of 20XX are due to two factors: 1) overstock of 10XX. It makes sense to delay the release of the new cards at a high jacked price. This will motivate consumers with a budget to favor...

    None of the above. I sold my 980 ti and buying a 950. There are too few games that deserve a high-end setup nowadays. I may consider a come back if better and more graphic demanding games are released (tired of poor console ports). I never thought I would say this but I miss the original...
