Nvidia RTX 20 Series: Why You Should Jump Off The Hype Train

Postby FlyingPenguin » Wed Aug 22, 2018 10:18 am

I've only seen one game listed (Metro Exodus) that will support Ray Tracing. Take away Ray Tracing and this card really is not much better than a 1080Ti. I'll pass for now.

I like great graphics as much as the next person. That's why I traded up for a 1080 when they got released. However, all the pretty graphics in the world won't substitute for gameplay. There have been very few AAA PC games that have interested me lately. I'm looking forward to more Doom and Tomb Raider but having ray tracing makes no difference to me.

I'd also skip this generation of video cards to give time for the technology to mature. Remember how badly NVidia implemented PhysX? I remember having to turn it off so games wouldn't crash.

Nvidia is claiming a 50% increase from the 1080 to the 2080 without DLSS. We'll see when the real in-game performance numbers come out.

Pre-Order Pricing: https://www.guru3d.com/news-story/preorder-prices-geforce-rtx-2080-and-2080-ti.html

I'm not paying $1,000+ for a video card. You can buy a decent budget PC for that or a PS4 pro or Switch with games for half of that.

VideoCardz say they have a copy of the Nvidia official Reviewers’ Guide, with performance graphs:
