I see the "marketing magic" with 2080 and 2080ti still works and people are mistaking one for another.

Also I have to nitpick one thing on Linus review... He claimed that VII does not have features similar to Raytracing or DLSS, but something is on the way. Raytracing is already present on GCN cards for years, and i admit its not for gamers, but he got that factually wrong.. DLSS is for now maybe present on Nvidias, but utilized? Not really.
