1080ti upgrade question

I have a evga 1080ti and its great

I was just wondering if I should upgrade to the 3000 series when they come out in september (I see no reason to get a 2080ti) or should I wait this one out. I guess the only way to find out would be to read the reviews when they come out. I was just wondering about your guys opinions.

I have a pg35vq its 3440x1440 @ 200 Hz with HDR

BTK is my initials if you were wondering.

I think you missed what I was trying to say there. If you have a 1080 Ti, "See no reason to get a 2080 Ti" then the assumption is that yes, you will infact wait for the 3000 series cards.

I have been acquiring parts for a new build and have decided not to get a 2080Ti. I figured that waiting to see what actually happens with the new chip is worth seeing. First, I want to see the cost and improvements presented by new cards. The reviews might get us there, but I think there will be major improvements, but at what cost. If I decide the cost does not make the leap worthwhile, the analytics can then be done to see what happens with the 2080Ti prices which are currently out of control. I have seen used cards go for almost 75% more than what they cost new. The 1080Ti is still a monster, so it may be that the decision is to sit and wait. Seems like making the decision when more information is available is a good idea. I have always said that once the appropriate information is available, the decision is easy.

It will be a given that the 30xx series will be faster that the 20xx series (how much is to be seen) and pricing will fall in line with the current 20xx series so dropping the $1200 or so for the 3080ti would be wiser than on the 2080ti at this point.

Besides, if the 3080ti turns out to be a turd or outrageously expensive, 2080ti prices will have fallen and you can pick up a 2080ti at a reasonable price.

If it is priced in line with the 20xx series. Given there was an increase from the 10xx to 20xx, why would the improvements in the 30xx not come at a higher price?

The price jump from 10xx to 20xx was mostly due to the GPU die almost doubling in size. The die size from 20xx to 30xx will not be nearly as dramatic.

Historically, each new generation brings more performance for roughly the same price as the last generation.

I expect the 3000 series cards to slot in at the same price points as current 2000 series cards. I'm not sure what the performance will be at those price points. It's impossible to know yet. The only thing I do know is the RTX 3080 Ti will not be a "turd." It's likely to be at least 40% better than the RTX 2080 Ti. Whatever they end up charging for it, people will pay. Perhaps not you or I, but those cards will not sit on shelves anywhere.
