RTX 2080 Step-up to a RTX 2080Ti?

Well I already dish out 800.00 bucks on my RTX 2080 I play at 4K 60FPS they said that RTX 2080 is sufficient for that in reviews if you want more FPS at 4K get the RTX 2080Ti I’m only worried of the 8GB Vram on the card is it going to be sufficient in 2020? The reason I went for RTX 2080 Mostly all reviews stated it 4K 60FPS blah blah RTX DLSS new hardware.

The card works fantastic but I don’t want to be hindered by 8GB Vram In a year or 2 I can step up for 380.00 dollars for a RTX 2080Ti I really don’t want to spend anymore on the GPU since 2080Ti is not guaranteed to get 4K 60fps in all games that are currently out. I upgrade rom GTX 1060 6GB I’m not planning to buy new GPU intill RTX 40series.

Return it, buy a 1080ti instead. Has 11gb of VRAM since you have fears it will be hindered.

2080 is 5%-10% faster in 4K but not sure how the Vram is going to do with more texture intensive games I bought it at Newegg I’m pretty sure they do re stock fee plus I had it for 18 days now.

You can watch benchmark videos on the 2080 and 2080ti where people have VRAM usage shown. Some games get up to 11.4 GB such as Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Some games require less.  If your playing at 4k and your turning all the eye candy, you can expect VRAM to be an issue in some titles now and in the future. But I am hesitant to recommend a 2080 or a 2080ti due to my own disagreement with the pricing of those two cards.

if you can afford it, then do it, you already bought the 2080, saving the 300usd isn't worth the braincells. (that's actually the trap evga wants you to fall into, the incremental spending). Though i fully expect next gen 7nm chips will crush the rtx 20 series, but that's at least a year out.

Well with DSLL you're supposed to run 1440p upscaled to 4k isntead of native 4k, so 8gb should suffice if you use this feature, if you want to render games at native 4k you should get a 1080 Ti or 2080 Ti.

 

That is, if you need ultra settings 4k gaming experience.

You are looking at a 400 dollar difference. If the future is your concern, you can use that 400 to upgrade a couple years from now and sell your 2080. Just keep that in mind. You could even use that 400 dollars to buy a 1440p 144hz ips monitor so you have the best of both worlds, high frame rates or 4k if you choose.

 

People too often forget how much of a premium you pay for supposed future proofing a card that people inevitable ditch 2 or 3 years down the road anyway, (especially with the outrageously priced 2080ti).

 

My view on future proofing is this. You future proof your CPU, because history has shown those can last a long time with minimal drop in gaming ability if you choose right, but for GPU just buy what works right now and use money saved on "future proofing" your to upgrade GPUs in the future. That money saved is the best future proofing you can do.
