Prob not, unless you really need that 20-30% perf increase in some games.


QUOTE ME IN A REPLY SO I CAN SEE THE NOTIFICATION!

When there is no danger of failure there is no pleasure in success.

Just because the 3080 is here, doesn't mean your 2080Ti is bad all of a sudden. It will still get most of the new features. If you're happy with your performance, just keep it.

"worth" is very subjective

 

is paying $700 worth it to get 30% more fps? yes? then yes

 

that said, if you're CPU limited then upgrading GPU wont do anything meaningful


Things I need help with:

Spoiler

 

 

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer monitors, Gigabyte, Seagate HDD, Kingston SSD, Razer (except their mouse), XiaoMi Phones

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

Uhmmm... At 4K the gap is the biggest between the 3080 and 2080Ti compared to other resolutions. Mainly because of the G6X memory.

NO, it's not...

 

Now if you had a 2080 or a 2070 etc. then yes..

It depends on your 2080 ti.

I use EVGA FTW3 Ultra and what struck me in the reviews was how low the 2080 ti scores were. The scores that I could test were in games that stated what preset they used so some used SOTTR at 1440p at the highest preset:

 

Jay's score was 112fps for the 2080 ti and 148fps for the 3080.

Hardware Unboxed got 120fps for the 2080 ti and 154fps for the 3080.

I get 137fps average. My 2080 ti is overclocked but that is the way I play. 

The uplift from 137fps to 154fps considering that I use a 120hz OLD TV to play is not worth the upgrade.

 

So now I have to look at 4k since my TV can do 4k 120hz with HDMI 2.1

Jay's score was 62fps for the 2080 ti and 85fps for the 3080.

Hardware Unboxed got 67fps for the 2080 ti and 87fps for the 3080.

My score is 78fps.  Again not a worthwhile upgrade.

For 4k I will need a 3090 so that is what I am planning to get.

 

I did ask on the EVGA forums since there are lots of FTW3 Ultra owners on there why the reviews had such low scores for the 2080 ti and a EVGA 2080 ti Black owner said the scores were spot on compared to there card. The Black is limited in power to 280 watts and my card can do 100 watts more.

JAY tested the 2080Ti FE card, so the EVGA Black would match that.

The 3080 turned out to be a big disappointment in terms of performance. In terms of price its a big improvement over the 2080ti, but thats only because the 2080ti was so overpriced to begin with.
