Worth upgrade from Titan xp to RTX ?

DemiSLayer
 Share

I have had 2 Titan Xp (star wars edition) cards.  I sold one in hopes of purchasing 2 RTX 2080 Ti.   I am debating just buying a second Titan Xp again to replace the one i sold.  I am not seeing ray tracing as being anything of value to purchase as in its totally worthless in fps.   Has anyone bench-marked 2080 ti in sli vs Titan Xp sli ?  just trying to justify such a price for  a Ti card.

There's no way to justify it. It will be 10% faster at best until raytracing hits, and even then it may be disappointing. Then again there was barely any reason to get a titan xp back when that was new, so... it's up to you.

Don't ask to ask, just ask... please 🤨

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

Just save your money for the next generation of cards, SLI generally isn't worth it, and the 20 series is a joke right now.

I edit my posts a lot, Twitter is @LordStreetguru just don't ask PC questions there mostly...

Agreed, I would be surprised to see a resurgence of SLI in gaming just because of Ray-Tracing. It was buggy as hell at the end, and now they have to start all over with a whole new technology. YEAH, that'll go smooth...

anything Pascal benefits from ultra-low core temps. I've got a 280mm AIO on my 1080ti but the configuration of it renders the rest of the PCIe slots inaccessible. So i'm looking to do the same, go full open loop water.

open loop stuff is so expensive though.
