Upgrade to 2080 Ti or no?

I dont feel the 2080 Super is going to be a big jump from the 2080 (Just looking at it on paper its not like the 2060S and 2070S...so unless theres some magic trickery in there I dont think this is like the old x80 Ti cards vs a Titan) Regardless, Yes Im planning to see if the 2080 Super is a good alternative

I have a 1080 Ti and I play games in 4k on my Acer Predator X27. I play almost everything, Im looking forward to the heaps of ray tracing games dropping in the coming months (Modern Warfare, Control, Wolfenstein Youngblood, Doom Eternal..etc) plus I have just started Metro Exodus and I play a good deal of BFV (Im less interested in RTX on this however)

I just got done building a new rig (Ryzen 9 3900x/x570) and I guess part of me is going "Why not do graphics too" since thats one of two things I reused. I cant push my 1080 Ti OC further, I've tried.

No. The money they want for a 2080Ti is outrageous. Keep your 1080Ti as long as you can.

Problem is, 2080Ti can outrun 1080Ti in 4k by even 50%.

There is a noticeable jump in performance at 4k when going from the 1080ti to the 2080ti. You should be able to take better advantage of that monitor you have with the 2080ti, assuming you don't use ray tracing. As long as it isn't your last bit of money I would say it's a worthwhile upgrade for a predator x27 owner.

I haven't come across any games with RTX features that I would use (other than checking it out once) but maybe some of the upcoming games will have an implementation that makes a difference other than my frame rate. I wouldn't purchased based on ray tracing hope.

2080 Ti I'd say yes due to your monitor. The 1080 Ti architecture has a performance penalty up to 12% with HDR+Gsync while the 2000 series do not.

https://www.overclock3d.net/news/gpu..._over_pascal/1

Quote:
With Nvidia's RTX 2080 Ti, it was discovered that the performance impact of enabling HDR and G-Sync HDR was minimal, so low in fact that it would be impossible to notice in-game. Moving back to Nvidia's Pascal-based Titan X (Pascal), Hardware Unboxed found that enabling HDR caused a notable drop to both average and minimum framerates. In Star Wars Battlefront II, enabling HDR and G-Sync resulted in a 12% decrease in average framerate, with larger drops being possible in other games.

These results show that Nvidia's investment in a Native HDR Display Pipeline within Turing has paid off, resulting in an HDR and G-Sync HDR gaming experience that doesn't make compromises when it comes to game performance.

Now that got my attention.. How interesting, I honestly never realized this was a thing

The thread is turning into a microcosm of my head at the moment to be honest, On one hand, I totally could do it, and sure its faster, plus i do feel im tapped out in some titles (Other titles, heck the 1080 Ti is still awesome), on the other hand it FEELS like a lot of money in a way even the 1080 Ti/980 Ti just didnt really. Then theres the absolutely silly part of my brain telling me that it seems so silly I spent *checks notes* $2700 on my rig so far and am still using a 2 year old GPU

I think the 1080 Ti might be one of the best cards nVidia ever produced tbh, thats kind of the problem. Regardless of either way i want to see the 2080 Super since its silly not to wait and see on that at least.
