When will the 1080Ti be dethroned?

Been looking for an upgrade for a bit, I bought my 1080Ti off Amazon in June of 2017 for $700, it looks like they go used on Ebay for $500+ these days! Probably the asset of least depreciation I've ever had in my entire life. Seems like the 2080Ti can trump the 1080Ti, but the price is just a bit too crazy for the price/performance upgrade over a 1080 Ti, which in some scenarios is a bit of a wash. The Radeon VII also doesn't look like it stacks up against the 1080Ti either.

So what's the next step up from a 1080Ti for under $1k? Will it be the next gen Radeon cards or is NV going to get aggressive in their pricing?

AIB 2080s also cost $700. Then there's the Radeon VII.

Seems bench wise 2080 and Radeon VII is a wash against a 1080Ti though

The only upgrade path for a 1080 ti is a 2080 ti. There's nothing else.

The real question is what are you doing that makes your current 1080Ti struggle and what percentage improvement do you need to make a useful difference. (spending hard earned cash for the "street cred" of high performance you do not actually need is a mug's game)

I assume you are running something like 4k at 144 fps to be having serious performance issues? The 30%improvement you get from a 2080Ti is not going to help much there - you will really be just paying for the ray tracing.

All is not lost -- Nvidia are currently releasing all sorts of non-ray tracing cards so I suppose its possible they may release a new non-ray-tracing card (GTX 1680TI ????) at a lower price with similar performance to the 2080TI in old school games.

That's an excellent point. What level of performance are you expecting? I already listed 100% of the cards available that can outperform a 1080ti within your price bracket. Maybe you could find a used 2080ti for only $1000.


Personally I wouldn't buy any GPUs on the market right now unless it were pre-owned becasue I simply will not support this sort of pricing, every one that bought into the RTX cards pretty much said "I'm fine with this level of performance at this price point even if the features were largely exaggerated."

I do play at 4K/VR - Mostly Squad, Post Scriptum, Blade & Sorcery (VR), IL-2 Sturmovik BoX (VR), the latter two have their share of slowdowns, with IL-2 dropping below 40fps on medium/high settings in VR, PS/Squad as well getting down there in the mud between 30-60 at 4K.

You can find 2080ti cards used at a good price but you need to jump on them. They do not last.

I've had my fair share of 1080tis. I never thought it was all omgz since I had a titan x pascals since 2016 and 1080tis were just a minor cutdown with faster ram. I also recently have 4 2080s on hand. 3 strix ocs and 1 trio. I didn't find the 2080s all that amusing or of interest during launch. Having compared the 2080 and 1080ti myself. I honestly would say the 2080 is a better card. Perhaps not worth the jump to from a 1080ti but non the less a better card. I think as we move towards newer releases the difference will become more apparent. My best 1080ti vs my best 2080 the 2080 still pulls ahead but more than 3-4% like reviewers want to point out. As for the 2080ti the thing is a beast (this isn't about pricing) and anyone whos hating on it either cant afford it or just wants to play the denial game. As for the 1k gpu game. You can get 2080tis for 1k the non a chips. They are slower and it can go up to a 10-12% difference unless you hard mod the non a obviously.
