Here are all the reviews you can gorge on:

Especially if you're like me and prefer reading at your own pace, rather than listening to the slomo review :)

What I find great is the ray-tracing performance. Check this out for a jaw to the floor:
( from the article: https://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/geforce_rtx_2080_founders_review,15.html )



This demo was real-time presented & recorded here (in 4k).   And previously it was rendered - quote from the article - "to achieve film quality at 1080p on 4 Tesla V100s, each with 16 GB of framebuffer"

But otherwise you can safely wait another generation IMO.

My result 4K optimised , running on 1 st generation i7 CPU and is only 5 FPS slower than the test system in the above Tech Chap review.

Most of the reviews I've seen on YouTube have the 1080ti and 2080 virtually identical, not worth an upgrade. Only the 2080ti with a jump in performance ~30% but over 70% price hike, again not worth it. Ray tracing is currently non existent and when it does get implemented is said to be a performance hog. As mentioned this is certainly a generation to skip, especially since the next gen 7nm stuff nvidia and AMD will possibly be out as early as next year, plus Intel gpus 2020?. Hardware Unboxed and GamersNexus on YouTube are good sources for game and hardware benchmark testing.

I think the issue is that there is virtually nothing that has been optimised for these news cards from the ground up.  Personally, I don't care too much for ray tracing.  I want to see pure grunt that will propel me through AC at 90 FPS using 180 degree 8K VR.

That probably means forking out for the 2080ti or waiting till next year, in the sweviver pimax review he said he had one on order, so worth waiting to see if it can do it, I think he said he has a 1080?

Well, one o/c 1080Ti (eg mine is a Zotac Amp extreme) can do very well on one 4k screen, but 8k ... you probably need 2x something beefy in any case, maybe even 3x since performance does not scale linear with multiple cards.
But it might just be possible that some sort of o/c 2080 founders could get you there.

Thinking of a 2080 Ti this one is good.

After suffering from a 18 hour eyestrain headache after last Tuesday night, caused by I hope, very low FPS, I have installed one of these. Gives me a 20% + increase in FPS and runs VERY quiet. Please note I think you will only get this improvement in FPS if running a 4K screen.

Good stuff Roo. Didn't you have a 1080 TI before? I thought that would easily handle 60fps on 4k

Correct Joe I was running the 1080Ti, but my system is  a new build with old parts I7 860 1st gen , only cost $500 to build not counting GPU cost and FPS would suffer under very loads and when running some Mod cars and tracks, and big fields on Tuesdays. CPU did not appear to be maxed out so I decided to go for the 2080Ti and it appears to have much improved the situation.

looks like a decent price for a 2080ti

CPU can make a surprising difference on fps more than I ever realized.

So what's happening to the 1080ti ?  ;)

Looks like half of what I spent on my entire PC (4 years ago). :o

I had no upgrade path for the CPU with my current mobo . I really find it hard to justify the cost of latest gen cpu/mobos. I am now going to build another PC which will meet WMR specs
https://support.microsoft.com/en-au/help/4039260/windows-10-mixed-reality-pc-hardware-guidelines and use the 1080ti in that , it will also be second hand parts, I only need a CPU and MOBO. I really like the specs on the HP Reverb WMR headset, and will use it for a VR setup.

For me, the CPU is the thing to shell out on most because it has less significant impact on fps and so it will lay longer without upgrading, and most importantly needs a while new mobo of upgrading again.

GPU get the cheapest you can that will give you what you want as thats the thing being upgraded most often.
