RT is the future, but the future will also have better products. Buying to be "future-proof" is the mistake here. The first-gen RT cards aren't exactly impressive at their marketed feature and clearly set a low bar to overcome. I wouldn't be surprised if the XX60 series card of the next architecture takes less of a performance hit than the 2080 when turning on RT.

Again, only EVGA is doing this and nobody else. So can't really pin this on nVidia.
EVGA is hurting the same way Nvidia is, neither is selling as much as they would want. EVGA relies a lot on NV because they became exclusives.

This one might have slipped under the radar then I guess:
Asus Wants Your Old Graphics Cards
There is a metric poop-ton of nVidia board partners and only two of them are doing this and only one of them covers North America buy back?
I get it though. They want people to purchase new parts wherever possible and the buyback is to get the buyer a slight(and I do mean slight) discount towards their card of preference.
I purchase once and use for the life span of 3 generations. If I had a 980Ti or a 1080Ti, I wouldn't even waste my time picking up a 2080 or Ti because RT is new tech and new tech always has some hiccups. Most notable is lack of RT games available. What, 6 games at most? My Steam Library has 100 games. I won't sweat Ray Tracing since none of those games that I have or will have will get any Ray Tracing focus. Besides that I don't Game to see all the purty visuals. If I stop to smell the roses, they will be the ones on my casket if I am not careful.
Great for screenshotting though.

At first I was like , and then I was , and finally I had to .
Really if you have to finance a GPU, you seriously need to straighten out your priorities.
However, on something smaller with shorter financing terms the potential to earn can be negligible.
