2080ti or 1080ti? RMA concerns.

Sorry if this topic has been beat to death. Recently I've been looking to upgrade my 1080 to a 2080ti. But after reading some reviews on sites, forums, etc, the amount of RMA's I'm reading about is making me reconsider my decision. I've read more negative than positive so far. The 1080ti's new nearly as expensive as the 2080ti's, there are a few used (like new) being sold on newegg for $800 however that I'm considering. I just don't know if upgrading to a 1080ti from a 1080 would be worth the money in my situation.

Just curious what do you guys think? 2080ti worth a shot or nah?

Most 2080 Tis have 3 years warranty. Get a brand that has a good reputation and go with that. No point to go from 1080 to 1080 Ti.

I'd just wait for the next GPUs or buy used, Turing has terrible price-to-performance and buying another GPU from Nvidia just ensures that prices will stay this way.

Why are you worried about 2080 TI rma's??


They are actually not common at all.


Go grab it if you want it!


Else a 1080 TI on the used market is still one heck of a card for under $600

I was planning on going with EVGA, most people seem to recommend their customer support and warrenties. And I agree, althought a 1080ti is a boost I just don't think it's a large enough boost from a 1080 imo.

I thought of this as well. Thing is idk when the next line of GPU's will be out. I remember hearing rumors of the 11xx series being released sometime this year but I'm not sure. But I agree the 2080ti price - performance isn't good, but it is the top of the line gamer gpu as of now, and I'm interested in its performance. As I said I'm just curious if it's worth the risk due to all the RMA's I've been reading about.

I do hope you're right about the RMA's not being common. But considering the amount of people posting their experiences about RMA'ing their cards, has me in disbelief. How is it that multiple people RMA'd their cards 2-3 times and had similar issues? Granted not all 20XX series owners experience this, but this imo is still alarming. Granted I know it's new tech and stuff and needs to be tuned and debugged, but you got to admit the amount of people complaining raises some questions. I truely do want the 2080ti, but I got to be wise with this $1500 decision lol.

And I wouldn't mind a 1080 ti, but as others said it might not be worth the jump performance wise from a 1080. I'm just considering it if the 2080ti option isn't a wise one.

1080 is still a great card, and does 4k gaming fairly well.


Have you thought about repasting it for possibly better temperatures, and overclocking it some more?


MSI Afterburner allows using the curve clocking feature to get more out of it, plus if you tap "L" after clocking a point on the curve, it locks the card to that voltage and frequency.




This trick allowed me to lock in 2088mhz and 1.1 volts on my 1080 TI, and its far more stable than 1.075 volts 2012mhz for some reason. I dont like being on the EDGE of stability, hence why Im running higher voltage.


But my gigabyte Aorus card has never seen above 55*C when the fans are at 100% (and silent by the way, great card)






In my opinion, unless you plan to buy an expensive high refresh rate 4K monitor, your 1080 card is going to work GREAT for you for at least a couple more years.


Get some time out of your purchase!! Have some fun gaming and think about it.

I agree the 1080 is a great card still, I'm just looking for more performance. I don't have a 4k monitor but have a ultrawide 3440x1440 120hz. I currently have a EVGA 1080 FTW Hybrid, and recently I've been considering including my GPU into my CPU's custom water loop. And I figured if I have to take apart my 1080 hybrid I might as well upgrade, Which is why I'm considering a 2080 ti.

I haven't messed with the overclock much on my 1080. I tried a few times but the improvement wasn't much. I was using the EVGA Precision X software, not MSI Afterburner. But sounds like you got good results out of MSI's software, I'll have to give it a try. I'm still new to overclocking.

I might in the future buy a high end 4k monitor when the time comes. I mostly play single player games and will play multiplayer games occasionally, so graphics are more important for me than fps. And like I said my 1080 works great, but there are a few games in which it can struggle (modded skyrim). But overall I just kinda want to upgrade to the newest tech, but had concerns with it's reliability.

if you plan to buy a brand new card and change the cooling, be sure to get an EVGA. AFAIK it's the only manufacturer that would not void the warranty for doing this.
on a 1000+$ card that's a point to consider.

(you may have to register the card with EVGA beforehand though, check if it's the case)

GB has 4 years after registration but the cooling is mediocre at best, even on the higher end models (Waterforce AIO not included).
From what I can see so far on my card, the Aorus has the same cooling arrangement as the cheapest Windforce but with worse fans (middle one is tiny) and added bling.
That would explain why it runs 76c at 92% fans in open air, even with added airflow.
