Our Verdict: Upgrading from GTX 1080 Ti to RTX 2080 is not recommended as it is less than 30% of improvement in performance. In general, a reasonable upgrade is between 30% and 50% or more to justify the purchase of new hardware. The price/performance ratio is much better for RTX 2080 .

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti / i7-7700K

It is worth noting that the GTX 1080 Ti is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. In terms of memory, the GTX 1080 Ti 's 11264 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. Deciding whether to invest so much money in a high-end GPU like GTX 1080 Ti requires careful thought. 4K gaming is joyous on this GTX 1080 Ti , and with a little tweaking to your AA settings, it'd be hard to imagine a title not capable of 60 fps on average.

I'm not too hardware-savvy, so I appreciate your input. I preordered an RTX 2080 Ti today. My rig currently has a GTX 1080, i7 7700K, 32 GB RAM, Evo 960 M.2, and a WiFi card. Will a 750W PSU be enough (without overclocking), or will I need something higher? I don't plan on overclocking it. Thanks!

Hello guys, i'm thinking of upgrading my gtx 1080 ti to an "new" Rtx 2080 (still not sure is the rumor is true or something), i,m playing mostly at 4K 60 fps, but i think the rtx can give me more performance to maintain the fps, do u think this is worth? Or i could wait for another gen? (Want to sell this to buy another)

Best to wait for the reviews, and from more than one source.

Hey, here is my dilemma, I need a new gamer pc, my old one is dead. I have paid a local business for building it.

I have see the RTX launch but I'm not sold, so I went with the GTX 1080 ti instead. It's cheaper and I could get it right away. It has also been well test and supported.

I ordered it, and then the guy calls me and tells me the GTX 1080 ti won't be in stock before the 14th. He then asked me if I wouldn't rather have the
"Asus Dual RTX 2080 8GB", by model.

He offered it for the same price(even that it's a bit more expensive), and since the release date and restocking date are close together. I choose the new generation.

I have heard many online saying we should wait to see reviews or benchmarks before buying it. But I really wondered what other people would do in my place. After all it's not too late to change the order.

I guess my question is, what would you do?

Here is the system I ordered.

Intel i7-8700K
Cryorig H7
Asus Dual RTX 2080 8GB or Asus Strix GTX1080Ti 11GB
32GB G.Skill RipJaws 3200MHz
Asus Prime Z370-P
Kingston A400 240GB SSD
3TB Toshiba P300 HDD
Corsair TX650Watt Gold+
NZXT H500i - Black

First, one thing i notice was the term "dual" in asus. that dual cooler is pretty bad, and you might want to do something about it.

performance wise, I don't think there is going to be too much difference, between 1080ti and 2080. that's what people are basically guessing, and it's reasonable to say that this is the worst case scenario. (1080ti = 2080).

any chance that rtx 2080 massively improves fps over the 1080ti (2080 > 1080ti). that's an bonus.

since you are paying the same for the latest tech. i think it's worth a try.
