  1. These cards sound awesome. Can't wait to see what it does in terms of improvement in real time 3D rendering for content creation.

  2. Lol, who except for technology maniacs and idiots will buy it? You buy top of the line cards to have a) at least 144fps ultra settings in 1080p or b) at least 60fps in 4k with whatever settings let you do it. Now they come with GPU that will be maybe 15% faster without RTX than last generation. Why would normal high-end user spend 1200$+ on 2080Ti when he/she can buy 2nd 1080/1080Ti for 700-800$ and get much higher performance. And don't try to convince me that suddenly people aiming for 60fps 4k will start to use RTX in games and play with 60fps 1080p. On top of it all 1st generation GPUs with new feature were always obsolete when this new feature was being used in most/all AAA titles. Nothing will probably change this time around. I was ready to buy new 2080 or 2080Ti before siggraph, now I see no sense in it.

  3. all beatiful but to me it seems 1 hour and 23 minute of bad jokes and a lot of masturbation…….and invidia….(the mine)

  4. That is all super cool and great but Blender 3d 2.8 can do this WITHOUT that great new GPU! It can do it with my Nvidia GTX 580!
