Pricings haven't really changed for RTX 2000, particularly the 2080Ti, it's been overpriced since launch, so I wouldn't expect the new cards to be even more expensive, but we obviously don't have any official numbers on that matter.

What does matter is that you will potentially be able to get the performance of a $1100 card in a new $600 card (some rumours suggested that the RTX 3060 will perform better than the 2080Ti, which would make that margin even larger, but these are obviously not confirmed and should be taken with a grain of salt).

I was wondering if it's worth getting the 2080 ti compared to the 2080 super.

i would wait for sebtember for new rtx 3080, but if you have the money 2080 ti is around 30% faster than 2080 super. if you have the money get the 2080 ti

Tier lists for building a PC.

 

Motherboard tier list. Tier A for overclocking 5950x. Tier B for overclocking 5900x, Tier C for overclocking 5800X. Tier D for overclocking 5600X. Tier F for 4/6 core Cpus at stock. Tier E avoid.

(Also case airflow matter or if you are using Downcraft air cooler)

Gpu tier list. Rtx 3000 and RX 6000 not included since not so many reviews. Tier S for Water cooling. Tier A and B for overcloking. Tier C stock and Tier D avoid.

( You can overclock Tier C just fine, but it can get very loud, that is why it is not recommended for overclocking, same with tier D)

Spoiler

 

Psu tier List. Tier A for Rtx 3000, Vega and RX 6000. Tier B For anything else. Tier C cheap/IGPU. Tier D and E avoid.

(RTX 3000/ RX 6000 Might run just fine with higher wattage tier B unit, Rtx 3070 runs fine with tier B units)

I'd say no.

About 12% difference in games. But still people buy 2080TI's

... but I'm no expert.

If you don't have any graphics card now and need to get one I'd say get the 2080S, otherwise, definitely wait until September for Ampere to drop.

Throwing $1100+ on a graphics card now with new ones around the corner wouldn't make any sense, and depending on how well the mid-range RTX 3000 options perform compared to the 2080Ti or other high-end current-gen RTX 2000 cards, you might not even get that great of a resell value out of it.

To save about 400$£€ - better to spend it on next gen hardware on launch.

For 1440p 144Hz the 2080 Super will be enough.

Like the others said, if its possible try waiting for the RTX 3000 series if you have a GPU on Hand do that.

We're all hoping they will drop the price of the old GPUs and release the new ones at the same price.

But noone really knows how NVIDIA will handle that.

It has been worth it to me.

 

I used two GTX 1080 tis and replaced them with 2080 tis.  I bought one first and did lots of tests and got the second four months later.

 

I am a 4k 60hz and 3840 X 1600 75hz gamer so the 1080 ti sometimes felt under powered.

I also use an LG OLED TV as a 4k monitor. It does 1440p 120hz and the 2080 it can do that on games like SOTTR with a mix of high and ultra settings. 

 

There is also the matter of the vram. At 4k I use over 8gbs a lot. At 1440p and 1600 ultra wide I use less. My 1080 ti and 2080 ti give me no crashes to desktop at 4k but the GTX 1080s(8gbs) did a lot.  These crashes are mainly from my modded/ building games, but its crashes every 20 minutes vs no crashes at all. 

I consider the 2080 a downgrade from a 1080 ti because of the vram. 

 

Value. 

There is no way I could put value and a 2080 ti together. It is a performance part and performance only has value to those that crave it.

For the things you want to do a 2080 ti is not needed.

It is a want item, not a need item.

why do you still use SLI?

Mainly because I have the cards.

I have used more than one computer for work and play since the 80s so I end up with more than one card. 

I don't sell them because in the past when I did, I ended having to buy more cards.

 

The oldest SLI setup I have running now uses two GTX 1080s and the other uses two GTX 1080 tis. Older cards go into charity builds.

I do not recommend anyone buying a card for SLI to play games since the gains would be disappointing to most.

 

Both SLI setups will be replaced by RTX 2080 tis when I upgrade to next gen. 

 

This video is representative of the type of gains you see in SLI in modern games(% wise). I looked it up because I need a third RTX card and all but the 2080 ti do not have enough vram so it looks like at some point I may SLI 2080 tis.
