I have a GTX 1070Ti and was considering the RTX2070S, but in the end I think I'll skip this generation. I have lots of older games I haven't played yet, and I'm not getting any newer games (really tempted with GoW5 but haven't even played GoW4 yet) so I'll keep my card for a while.
1070 is still a good card and RTX technology brings nothing exciting to the table so far in its current iteration - in the games I’ve played anyway. (Quake 2, Metro Exodus, 3d Mark, various ray tracing demos) I’d wait if RTX is the upgrade driver.

No RT isn’t a big factor in my decision. So, taking RT out of the equation, do you think it’s a good upgrade path?
Taking RT out of the equation, I think it's still a good upgrade path. You will get a 60% performance increase in most games at 1440p.
If RT doesn't interest you, maybe consider a custom 5700XT, cheaper and nearly as good performance wise as the 2070 Super.
If all you truly want is a frame rate boost and you don't really care too much about RTX features or you plan to upgrade when the 3rd gen of RTX cards hit the market then definitely grab a 2070 Super now.
I’m kind of leaning towards this. I’m tired of waiting for the next thing around the corner. I can always upgrade again when RT matures.
Great. I wouldn't to that kind of jump myself, but if you are happy, its all good.I got my 2070 Super, an EVGA one, last Friday. I posted earlier in the thread that I was changing from a 1080Ti. It's a really good card. Thought I would regret the purchase, but, I am actually glad I did.
And after playing with it for a few days, I can honestly say that you will be very happy with the jump from a 1070 to a 2070 Super.
Go for it.
