Our Verdict: The price of GTX 1080 TI is ridiculous. Upgrading from RTX 2070 to GTX 1080 TI 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 2070 .
