    Ahead of Monday’s official unveiling, VideoCardz has provided an early look at additional GeForce RTX 2080/Ti cards from ASUS, EVGA, PNY, ZOTAC, and Palit. The PNY leak is particularly insightful, as it includes product sheets with specifications such as CUDA cores and memory size.

    According to PNY, the RTX 2080 Ti features 4352 CUDA cores and 11GB GDRR6 memory across 352-bit memory bus. The XLR8 OC model has a TDP of 285W (because the card overclocked). It supports 2-way multi GPU through NVLink. The base clock for this card is 1350 MHz with boost around 1545 MHz.

    In for one 2080Ti, during the holiday season. I'm curious to see how the tensor cores will accelerate some of my workloads. Could be a viable alternative to a titan V, considering the price.

    Will IPC improvements allow perf over titan v with approx 1000 less cuda?

    Now, just to hope there's time to preorder before they all sell out. For $1000 per card, the TI should be good enough, and I'll end up getting two. The titans just don't seem to be worth the extra money.

    Just a note that SLI connector is dropped. They do come with NVLINK but how much a bridge costs for the Geforce RTX cards is unspecified.

    Same here.. Around $350 is my absolute max for a video card. Just got a Zotac 1080 AMP Edition for $325 so they can suck it!

    Personally I don't care much about the 20 series release right now as far as having to acquire one (cutting edge tech is almost always very expensive) but I am hoping NEW 10 series cards will keep being sold at least until the end of the year and that prices will drop to where they ought to have been a year ago ... here's to hoping

    Agreed, but the article does mention that is almost definitely a place holder.

    I fucking hope so, at least.

    ...and so there is, over on VideoCardz. Figured it wouldn't hurt to highlight the price here as well, for those who don't dance to click-throughs.

    In that same screenshot is another price which is 899. So, who knows. Of course nvidia has a lot of pricing room (thanks to lack of competition). So it's not like they couldn't go from 1k-50 dollars.

    Guess it's just one of those wait-and-see things. While it wouldn't shock me to see the Ti going for $1000, I certainly hope nVidia don't leverage their position that hard.

    Also surprises me they would be launching a Ti version along with the normal launch. Just makes me think even the Ti won't be a fully fledged chip, and we will still be waiting ~a year for the "real" Ti. But frankly I don't know enough about the architecture or chip to say.

    None of this makes sense from a historical stand point.

    Oh well.

    I'm sure in 2 years the 2080 (but probably not the TI) will be down in that price range. I could buy the TI, but I'm not sure it makes any sense...we'll see. I guess if I started gaming more or if I got into VR it might make sense, but we'll see. Up to now, I've generally spent around 200-250 on cards, but for 4k or better, that's not really an option.

    I hope everyone isn't distracted by shiny new objects and remember GPP.

    I'll just be waiting for a 2070... I'm sure it'll be way cheaper and blow my 970 out of the water....

    While GPP annoyed me, the fact remains that nvidia has the best gpu's on the market. When these release that lead is just increased.

    And if you buy used, nVidia doesn't get any of your money.

    But yeah, GPP sucked and I would rather go AMD, but they don't have anything for the price that is worth it for me.. hence why I bought a used 1080 to replace my R9 390.

    Being [H]ard has nothing to do with spending $1000 on a video card. Maybe that's E-PeenOCP you're thinking of.

    I heard a rumor that their going to release the 2080 and the 2080 Ti at the same time is that true?

    this EVGA card looks very good. It never occurred to me (or anyone else until now?) to make the shroud clear (y)

    I've made a lot of comments about pricing and other stuff I really had no clue about, don't buy so the price lowers, etc but after seeing that card ...

    The PNY leak showed HDMI 2.0b. This better be a sick joke.

    Jensen will rake in enough profits from these to buy a few factories for his jackets I'm sure. It'd be hilarious if he had an Oprah moment and voila! "Check underneath your card-everyone gets a new jacket".

    Christ sake, $1000...fuck that. Nvidia is just seeing how wide we’ll spread our asscheeks at this point.

    Clear stuff is cool until it gets dirty...then it looks like crap.

    Also, if $1000 is true...no thanks.
