2080 or 2080 Super?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

2080's are currently on sale rn for $610 with two games. Saw a report saying that 2080 super may be underwhelming. Do you guys think it's worth it, to grab a 2080 at this price?

 

I would just get the 2080 now but building for 1440p 144hz and could probably use all the extra fps I can get. However, I'll want to upgrade in two years or so. So maybe 2080 for $600 instead of Super at $740-$760 is the better call? I don't need all the anti aliasing and extra options turned on.

 

What do you guys think?

Buying 2080 after 2080 Super launch? Or is the current card underwhelmingly slow?

 

Also rumours of bigger Navi is still poping up, and it's pretty unreasonable for a "more affordable architecture" to only come in one GPU size. I mean, moving from HBM in Vega to GDDR is a step to make the card cheaper to produce.

I would wait.  If the Super model isn't worth it, you'll still be able to get a 2080 for a decent price as they will want to offload that model and lower the price to do so.

Probably the best idea. Just need something relatively soon. Was thinking about buying a 2080 now and leaving it sealed, so I could return if 2080 super doesn't seem worth it.

It's killing me having to wait as well.  I almost purchased the Asus Rog RTX 2080, but held off once I heard about the Super version.  If they give the same kind of performance gains the 2070 Super has over the original 2070, I think it will be well worth the wait and cost the same.
