  1. @BigRom Interesting. Both were listed as compatible on the G. Skill website. I am assuming you didn't see it on ASRocks listing? I guess I am asking more from a conceptual standpoint. Any opinion or insight on CL +/- 2 and +/- 400 MHz?
  2. @BigRom Yes, the 570 Taichi. It's only like $40 dollars difference too, which makes me even more suspect of the 3600 kit.
  3. I am curious what RAM experts would recommend between these two SKUs of G. Skill RAM for an AMD Zen 2 Chip like the 3700 X or 3900 X? The difference is probably negligible, but the timings on the 3600 MHz kit look pretty loose. Would the lower CL and tighter timings of the 3200 kit actually result in better performance?

  4. @Jurrunio Not sure who he is, but this is what we were talking about: https://techgage.com/article/nvidia-geforce-2060-2070-super-review/2/
  5. @Zando Bob@Jurrunio@Jon Jon@xg32 Hmm, looking back over it maybe it was exaggerated in my mind. But, what set my antennas off, were that his results seemed to contradict what everyone else was telling me - including a direct msg from Tim, Hardware Unboxed, who I consider to be an expert. He provided pictures for the in-game graphic presets, but only for 1080p. And then I probably read this comment and immediately discredited the results. So you think the benchmarks are reliable?
  6. @Jon Jon Do you think the 2080 Super could provide 100 FPS consistently at Ultrawide on "AAA shooters"? If so, do you noted any benchmarks for this use case?
  7. So, I actually found this last week and I was pretty pumped bc it indicates that the 2070 S may actually be able to drive an Ultrawide the way I am looking for. But as I went back through the benchmarking a couple times, I found myself asking questions that typically would have been covered by the highly regarded benchmarkers ie Gamers Nexus, Tech Deals, Hardware Unboxed, etc. He also didn't disclose the monitor that he was achieving the results on. To see if my red flags were valid, I went to the comment section. Take a look. What are your thoughts?
  8. @Zando Bob know any sources that have benchmarked the 2080 on ultrawide ?
  9. Yes, this makes a lot of sense to me and I think where my head is at; just wanted to confirm that I wasn't completely off and was really curious. Would you consider the 2070 S to be in the "mid range" relative to your post? @Jurrunio When is the high tier Navi rumored to launch? I see your point on the console, but respectfully disagree. Other than gaming, consoles are pretty much useless. For $400 you could make a PC that runs1080 and does pretty much anything under the sun. The closed platform nature of consoles is so limiting. Maybe future gen will change that. @Zando Bob@Jurrunio@xg32 In conclusion, should I buy the 2070 Super or the 2080 TI (waiting isn't an option)? A ultrawide monitor is a very, very attractive proposition for me due to what it can provide productivity-wise. But, I still want to play my shooters competitively and I want some "cushion" for the future and I am not sure if the 2070 Super can provide those things and the 2080 S seems Lost in Space.
  10. @Zando Bob So maybe my line of thinking (see my reply above to badreg) isn't completely off? i.e. if you bought the 2080 TI (especially on release date), it could represent a good long term value bc games, graphics, and monitor tech aren't drastically changing the next 3-7 years plus your great point about market push for mid-range focus as PC gaming becomes a more viable option and more ppl transition away from console bc its price to performance to utility is not very good?
  11. @Zando Bob I see so is another massive jump likely to happen in the foreseeable 5 range future?
  12. The 2070 Super is actually a good example for what I am trying to hash out. Yes, the 2070S can perform at 1440p, but what about Ultrawide 1440p @ 144 hz. I am not sure the 2070 Super could really take advantage of a monitor like that. Bc the monitor market is slightly ahead of the consumer GPU market but also plateauing - would it not make sense to go ahead and pay the extreme price premium now to cover all the "monitor bases" rather than getting a 2070 Super now and then having to upgrade again 2 years, which only then would you be able to comfortably get 144 hz at 1440 something that the 2080 TI could have provided all along. Again newer to the PC gaming space, so all of this could be very, very wrong. I more so wanted to poll the community. I'd be curious to see how the slightly newer flagship models compare against the Super line while thinking about GPU uselife (maintained desired results), CPI adjustments, tech advancements in GPU and other components, etc?
  13. If initial capital outlay isn't an issue, would the highest performance GPU (i.e. 2080 TI) represent the best value in the long run? I haven't been in the PC space long enough to know the GPU player's pricing tendency, but at first glance it seems that buying a high end card that will last 5-7 years (especially with monitors plateauing to some degree on what the visible eye can recognize) is a better value than buying a mid to "low-high tier" (i.e. 2070 Super) and then having to upgrade again in 3 - 5 years?
  14. @xg32 Yeah I hear you - the costs are starting to pile up though. Do you think those "esport" titles could get 144/144 on a lower settings with the 2070 S or probably not? I can't find any benchmarking specific to this scenario.
