An upgrade from my 1070 SLI was going to be the 2080. However the 2080 still has the same framebuffer limitiations as my 1070 (8GB) and useless RTX.People still defending this cards?!
If AMD wants to sell this card at a loss while white knights fan boys defend their sensibilities, lets them. Thanks for what little competition AMD offers.
If people want to wait till next month to buy a card without PhysX and RTX for the same price (and propbably more) instead of a card that available NOW, let them. You can't argue with stupid.
When people have to go as far as saying the CEO is a douchbag as a technical argument, what hope is there for a resonable discussion? Your time is better spent else where.
Want to discuss something....Why did AMD have to use an Intel CPU to bench their card in the first place?
Right now, an (old - 2017) game I'm playing (Shadow of war) with high res texture pack already eats > 8G. This means the 8G cards are useless for top eye-candy. My next upgrade will be 1080Ti or AMD new Radeon VII.
Nvidia should have gone with 12G on the 2080, really...
Full Disclosure: I have a 1440p Gsync monitor & a 1080p Freesync for my RX580 based box.
