Is 4K 120Hz gaming possible on recent AAA titles?

IIRC the Titan isn't any better than the 2080Ti in games.

The Titan is about 3-5% better then the 2080 Ti in games through some gaming benchmarks... BUT, with the 2080 Ti running about 1300... and the titan running 2500. Literally makes no sense.

 

As for the OP, Only way to game at 4k 120hz currently is NVlinking(successor to SLI) two 2080 TI's, as you see these are bit older titles, with modern AAA's you'll have to drop your settings down... to like medium, even that might not help. Here's some benchmarks.

I'm currently running a 1080ti with an AIO water cooler backed by a 8700k (4.7GHz OC) and gaming on an LG 4K 60Hz IPS monitor. On games from 2016 (Division) I'm getting 100FPS and with more modern games (Farcry 5) I'm all the way down to 50FPS. I want to upgrade to this unholy beast and  I'm wondering if there is anything on the market that can drive it to its full potential. Would an EVGA watercooled 2080ti be sufficient? Or would I need to go full insane and get a Titan RTX? (I've got a line on one for a mere 2kUSD)
Or am I just SOL? Is 4K 120Hz gaming just a pipe dream on modern titles?

if you dont turn down the graphical settings, get a pair of 2080Ti for 2-way SLI.

 

Yes it's a dream atm

Wait 6 Month for the next Generation. 2k on a GPU now would be stupid.

Unless the next gen Nvidia cards give a big big big leap of performance, like more than 60%, than the 2080Ti. A single card for 4K 120fps will not be possible for most AAA games.
