2 x 2080 TIs vs Titan RTX

So I’m building a computer for 3D modeling/vr and I’m not afraid to go all out. I know the 2080’s are more geared for gaming and the Titan is more for productivity, but would two 2080 TIs in NVLink be better or worse than a Titan?

sli is kinda hopeless these days, but the titan is just a 2080 ti with more memory. go quadro or go single card

It just depends on which games you'll be playing.  YouTube will give you a better indicator of what to expect in specific titles.

If those are your only two options, it still depends on your software. A single Titan RTX is a little bit better than a 2080Ti, and has more than double the VRAM but costs twice as much. 

 

If what you're doing can use two cards and you don't need 24gb of VRAM, two 2080Ti will cost the same and have nearly double the processing power. 

 

@LukeSavenije like many others on here is a bit confused as SLI is not really any worse off now than it ever has been. Roughly 1/3 of games don't support it, which has pretty much been the norm ever since Nvidia's version of it began after they bought 3dfx and created their own SLI technology.

supported and scaling well are different things...

Wow, everyone responded so quickly! There is somethings I’ll have to look into, but this helped!

SLI has never really scaled 100% evenly.  It likely never will, either.  But it will provide a higher frame rate than a single card can in supported games.

 

Anti-SLI folks like to keep moving the goal posts.  Ya'all are adorable sometimes.

if you say so... I'm also the guy that says 64 gigs is overkill, just as 4 ghz ram, that doesn't like hedt platforms, things like that... don't worry too much about it, we all have our ideas about hardware

Most reviewers are still doing their "Use the RTX Titan for what it's aimed towards" reviews. I'd wait. But judging from gaming results thus far, you wouldn't even need dual RTX 2080 Tis to come close in most respects. Coming from someone who has 3 SLI systems and has no issue with someone wanting to spend the money, I still say avoid it unless someone comes out with a use case that is worth while for you.
