Super; new (for warranty purposes), has RTX, marginally faster. Unless the extra 3gb ram are necessary (are they ever?), I don't think I would consider a 1080ti at this point.

Lets assume for the sake of argument that the prices are equal.

I have a 2070, why? Because used 1080Ti are rare and very expensive, people are nuts and want near new money for expensive GPUs so they can recover as much as possible when they fell for the 2080Ti upgrade which costs something like 2 months of supposedly average salary.

Used 1080Ti at the cost of a new 2060/5700? Sure why not.
Used 1080Ti at the cost of a new 2070? Ehmmmm nope.

2070 Super isn't bad but the prices are probably crazy for new ones. Your best bet was to grab a stock clearance 2070.

You'd be surprised on the VRAM. Quite a few games will go over 8gb at 1440p. Farcry and division come to mind. RTX is pointless this generation. With that said getting a 1080ti is difficult these days.

Both new?

1440p and lower, 2070 Super. Ultrawide 1440p or higher, 1080 Ti.

BFV and GTA V (with mods) use more than 8GB of vRAM already >1440p.

Unless the 1080 Ti was cheaper and new, I probably wouldn't even consider it unless you were at 4K though.

AMD FX-8320 Vishera @ X4 5022mhz (+43.5%)

2070, unless high hz high res gaming.

& at this point, a sane person would only buy used 1080tis.

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

Due to that...it's a no-brainer. 2070s like everyone has mentioned

With that said...if not for the sake of arguement...then price really would muddy the waters. At the right price I'd get the 1080ti as rtx is simply not mainstream enough yet. I'd wait for it to become mainstream to spend for a feature, which in this case is a few years off.

Yep super new architecture for more demanding titles concerning resident geometry and its increase in complexity. Uses less power also.
