    We have cards to use for comparison in our coming reviews, but thanks. This is preview, a baseline. We will cover different comparisons going forward.

    Kyle, I, perhaps like others, am trying to decide if I can finally beat my SLI addiction. Is this the one at 1440? Any plans on doing a 1080Ti SLI vs single 2080Ti? OOHHH, pleeaaassseee. Grovel and beg.

    I have a 4K screen and left SLI behind several months ago. Will likely go 2080 Ti some time in the future, but right now I am really not chomping at the bit to do that.

    Kyle, I know this is going off topic but what do you shoot for in 4K gaming? Lower some settings to get frame rates as high as possible i.e. the 50 to 60 range or crank them up and try to keep them around 30?

    Just moved to this Ti, and the only game I have been playing much lately is Hunt. I have been running it in a 2650x1600 in a borderless window. But that is more because you really need to be able to see the whole "screen" while playing this game and the 48" is not good for watching your peripheral. I have played a bit of Strange Brigade too. Can run that game with everything turned on and full screen and run well over 60. Doom, pretty much the same thing. I think those are the only three games I have played on this 1080 Ti since I installed it. But I like to keep my frames above 60 for sure.

    Sorry I'm a bit slow sometimes. It wasn't till you mentioned it above that I noticed you swapped out your Titans. Could be wrong, but are there more changes to that rig?

    Good preview. 2080 Ti is a pass for me. So disappointed.

    I think the performance is there....but not at the price.

    I currently have 2 setups:
    1) 1070 SLI for 1440p (60hz/IPS monitor) on Win10. I run games that are sub $10, so you can guess the age of the games. I really haven't ever thought "Need new video card" in the last 2 years.
    2) 1080 single card on Ubuntu 18.04. Resolution on this guy is 1080p/60hz, so I think I'm ok here as well.

    I think my next upgrade will be when I can get 2080Ti performance in a 4060 for $200 or so...

    Well, you are gaming 'only' at 1080P, so stick with what you have. Your CPU is more of a bottleneck anyways at that resolution ;-)

    People keep comparing the 2080 to the 1080 Ti, which is understandable given that they're closer in price... but no one mentions that the 2080 simply DOES NOT HAVE ENOUGH MEMORY! Seriously, we already have games that can more than max out 8GB. 11GB is the minimum now for a high end card IMO, unless you want textures that look worse than on console... which isn't good. I would absolutely consider a 2080 eventually, even though I hate the price, but it would be a DOWNGRADE for me, because I have a 1080 Ti and the 11GB is just enough, and may NOT even be enough before the end of the 2080 series generation. "Ultra" quality textures, in Shadow of War for example, make a much bigger difference than most of the higher-cost graphical features... but 8GB ain't enough, and that game is already a year old!

    I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that people who "upgraded" from a 1080 Ti to a 2080 will regret it, if not now, then soon enough...

    Honestly, most games now have in-game settings for supersampling which look and perform better than DSR (mainly perform better, of course). Only in older games, or newish games that aren't high-budget graphical powerhouses, really would need or benefit at all from DSR over what is offered in-game with "supersamplish" or "resolution scaling" or whatever the given title chooses to call it.

    Plenty of us have been mentioning the meager 8GB on 2080. I guess $800-$900 just doesn't buy much DDR6. ;)

    What games are you playing that use this much RAM?

    I just played through Wolfenstein II New Colossus and the new Doom. No matter what I do with the settings I can never get them to hit 6GB, and I play at 4k. Utilization always levels off at about 5.7GB, and I have a 12GB Pascal Titan X.

    Before these two games I don't think I've ever seen anything even hit 5GB.

    I'm kind of curious what uses that much VRAM, because I've never seen it.

    Deus Ex Mankind Divided can exceed 11GB on 4K max settings.

    This is exactly what I've been waiting to see, thanks! I'm glad Nvidia's bullshit hasn't slowed you guys down much and I can't wait for the full review.

    So far, I would have REALLY liked to see another 15% - 20% performance out of the 2080 Ti... but I want more oomph than I can get out of a 1080 Ti, so fuck it, what can ya do?

    Hmm. Ok. The reason I never saw that was because my Pascal Titan (even overclocked on water) wasn't fast enough at 4k.

    I had to do a custom ultrawide 21:9 (3840x1646) resolution and play it letterboxed to make it fast enough.

    I had a Titan X Pascal when I was playing Deus Ex. It was in no way playable on 4k max, I just did it as a test. I think I was getting like 5 fps.
