I have both RTX 2080 or GTX 1080ti I need to get rid of one.

I have a ASUS Strix OC GTX 1080ti and EVGA RTX 2080 XC OC games are smoother at 4K with GTX 1080ti especially Black Ops 4 Blackout at 4K I’m sure is bad optimization on 2080 or lack of vram but then again GTX won’t be getting any optimizations like the RTX in the upcoming future. If you where me what card would you keep if you had to only choose one?

Sell both, get 2080 Ti.

 

Sticking to the newer card makes better sense.

Do you care about money? If so, you probably will get more money selling the 2080. And Nvidia GPUs usually don't get improvements with drivers, that's an AMD thing. So you'll have to choose between money and RTX features like DLSS (looks like gimmick from what I've seen) and Ray Tracing or money. I would stick with the 1080 Ti and save the money, this gen will probably suck at RTX anyways, it's just a quick way to get the tech out there, like a beta version of the next gen.

Give it a little bit for driver fixes on the 2080. I'd get rid of the 1080ti since it's older and has fewer features.

At 4k with settings cranked, you may hit the 8GB memory limit.  Personally, I would keep the 1080 Ti or jump to a 2080 Ti.

Nvidia got me twice on the Vram dilemma first with GTX 970 having 4GB of Vram when it really has 3.5GB of Vram and 500 separate making it a bit slower on accessing the rest of of 500GB, now the RTX being faster than GTX 1080ti and only sporting 8GB Vram. The 11GB Vram make big difference in CoD Blackout.

I know is poorly optimized game but does this poorly optimized game really need 10gb or Vram? Nvidia really hindered the RTX 2080 they should at least made it 10GB of Vram, RTX 2080Ti with 12gb of Vram but it would probably made each card go up 200.00 dollars more, and added 2x 8 pin pci-e power connecter instead of one 8 pin and a 6pin.

just my 8000 cents there....
