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 .

RTX 2080 vs GTX 1080 Ti with i7-8700K vs i7-7700K at 1080p and ultra vs ultra settings

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 / i7-8700K

It is worth noting that the RTX 2080 is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. In terms of memory, the RTX 2080 's 8192 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 RTX 2080 requires careful thought. 4K gaming is joyous on this RTX 2080 , and with a little tweaking to your AA settings, it'd be hard to imagine a title not capable of 60 fps on average.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti / i7-7700K

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.

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.
