It's a value proposition. The prices seem high, yes, but if it's providing value, then it may be worth it.
We don't know where the performance actually is. If it's around 50% better, as rumored, then I don't think the price is that crazy. The MSRP of the 2080 Ti is $999, so the cost increase from a $699 1080 Ti falls in line with the performance rumors.
I mean, we've been at around the same performance for a while now. Titan X Pascal came out over 2 years ago, and there hasn't been a big development since. Now Nvidia finally has something new.
Agreed that Nvidia is gouging, but if the value is there then that's just how much it costs.
Remember the new SKU lineup.
The Titan line is now a separate line since Titan V (slotted in between QUARDO and GeForce), so what you are looking at is this:
GTX Titan XP -> RTX 2080 Ti
GTX 1080 Ti -> RTX 2080
GTX 1080 -> RTX 2070
