    Biggest reason for upgrading personally was the odd few games that I may like to play at maxed out 4K 60fps that had zero sli support. If every game supported sli then I would have stuck with my 1080 Ti's as they ran a sli supported games at 4K 60fps with plenty of headroom to spare.

    Yes they are overpriced but the performance on these cards is fantastic.

    LMAO!
    If only they’d fix and improve the game first (assuming DICE are carrying out some of these works). Absolute abortion of a BF game.

    Will be a nice additional, finally. Should put even a 2070 close to very top end 10 series in DX12 if users wish to use DLSS with RT off, assuming that scenario is allowed (DLSS with RT off). With RT on it will apparently claw back most if not all of the loss in performance caused by RT on.
    Lets hope game devs and NV can get this stuff into new releases for Day 1 launches in future.
    Roll on Tuesday!

    I abstained this gen after looking forward to upgrading.

    I don’t regret it.

    Fail

    My opinion has not changed, a FAIL for me personally. Nothing to interest me in the current gen RTX cards. Not going to **** them off though, quite sure some will find a happy upgrade path. But not a big enough improvement to induce me to upgrade and I still think the 2080ti (only card that would be a "real" upgrade) is way to highly priced (at least for me). Gaming at QHD at the moment (& probably for some time to come), I think I'll continue to sit this one out.

    I have just made the jump from a GTX 1080 to a RTX 2080 and at 4K i can defo feel and see the difference in the games i play.

    While some will say its not worth the upgrade i am more than happy with the extra performance it gives me at 4k and i dont regret making the jump.:p

    It's a big Win for me. I had to play some games at medium settings to get 4k 60fps on the 1080ti
    No such issue on the 2080ti yet, all Ultra

    It's a failure. No improvement on price/performance and barely any game support several months later. The tech is good, it just won't be anything other than a tick box for some time to come. When mid range cards and eventually consoles can implement ray tracing it will become widespread.

    2070 is an able replacement for my 980Ti and cost £80 less, quicker in everything and should improve as time passes. Knew the RT\DLSS was impracticable when I bought it, so wasn't a factor, hopefully that too will improve and become useful. Cost wise it was the only upgrade for me. Didn't see a better alternative with Amd either sadly so.................not a fail as an upgrade but a fail for the as yet redundant new tech.

    At the moment Destiny 2 and The Division are taking most of my time and they support SLI just fine, SOTTR and hellblade I need to finish (hellblade works fine with a custom SLI profile). Also playing ACO which doesn't support SLI and needs all the performance that unoptimized game can get and occasionally play Forza 4. 2080 Ti runs Forza at 4K extreme with headroom to spare, such a well optimized game.

    Used to play GTA 5 a lot but haven't in ages, that ultra grass is still ridiculously demanding but 2x 2080 Ti's at 4K it never drops below 60fps while it does with one card.

    Which is a fair bit more percentage-wise than the utilisation they get :D

    :(

    Win in terms of performance. Double fail in terms of reliability, for me at least.

    Any news if this is across all resolutions or just 4k?
