Id expect the 1100 series to offer the same performance levels as the RTX lines do without the Ray Tracing, I would also expect them to issue TI versions as well eventually that exceed RTX performance to basically try and price saturate the market while the tech is in infancy. The idea behind it though is very poor as its basically trying to screw investors into the RTX to try and make a few dollars while the tech develops. If anything, I would say the ray tracing GPUs were to early and they knew it after the fact, and will try and keep money flowing for investors. The whole thing seems kind of shady to me, but I am no market professional either. I however am typically about a 50/50 Intel/AMD and nVidia/AMD guy. I buy dollar to performance/needs. This time, nVidia appears like they are pulling fast ones on consumers to me so I will be buying the new Vega RII instead unless its a dud. We will know in February on that when the new AMD releases how it truly stacks up to the green team. If your not impressed with the RTX yet, do not buy it. Besides, since your not ready to build your system, why not wait for another option to possibly drive prices down on the green side.
EDIT: If you havent checked out Microcenter yet... you are missing out... You should make it a point to visit this weekend!
