Default which 2080 ti rtx to buy??

Hi, I recently read an article about the gtx 1080 tiís starting to run out so i have swap my interests to the rtx 2080 Ti. Pls recommend me a great rtx 2080 Ti gpu thanks
also i want to tell me because i must know what to do what is the difference between 2080 Ti rtx and 1080 ti? 2080 rtx has the same performance like 1080 ti>? in games?? or 1080 ti is better from 2080 Ti rtx??


the benchmarks what they say for the 1080 ti and 2080 Ti rtx?/ do you believe that 2080Ti rtx is more futureproof from 1080 ti??
what advise you can give me ?? for these 2 cards? which to buy from these 2? 1080 ti or 2080Ti rtx?>?>
1080 ti is aroynd 2 years from now and rtx 2080Ti is the new generation card
can yoy help me with my decision please?? i am very confused and i dont know what to do in this case.


I am very confused because some people told me to buy 1080 ti and some another people told me to buy 2080 Ti rtx because they believe that the newst games will be compatible with dlss and rtx technology and also the new drives from 2080Ti rtx will make the 2080Ti better in perform,ance in the newest games, from 1080 ti Ö
what is the difference between 2080 Ti rtx and 1080 ti? 2080Ti rtx has the same performance like 1080 ti>? in games?? or 1080 ti is better from 2080Ti rtx??
the vram memory between 1080 ti and rtx 2080TI is the same?
the benchmarks what they say for the 1080 ti and 2080 Ti rtx?/ do you believe that 2080TI rtx is more futureproof from 1080 ti??
if i will buy one 2080 ti now for how long will last me for ultra gaming and 2K/144hz and 1440p in resolution 2560 x 1440??
will hold me for 2 years from now to play games in ultra settings in resolution 2560 x 1440??/
because i dont want to buy example one card in 600 euros and then after 1 year to buy another
do you understand what i mean?


can you tell me please??
do you believe that 2080 TI rtx will be more powerfull if Driver updates could well improve performance - especially if the initial drivers have issues?? DLSS support could increase frame-rates for many titles and provides future-proofing?? Newer games with more modern engines tend to perform better on RTX hardware??
which are the positives and the negatives between these 4 cards::

astrix 2080 rtx ti

Evga Ftw3 2080 ti

msi rtx trio 2080 ti


Palit Gaming Pro OC 2080TI

The RTX 2080 Ti is expensive. Very expensive. But, that said, it is the fastest consumer graphics card available. The RTX portions, DLSS, ray tracing, etc have not been thoroughly evaluated due to lack of software supporting those features. Battlefield V just released their patch to include real time ray tracing. The effects vary in the "wow" factor, but the hit to performance is massive, if you don't do any tuning what-so-ever. Just leave Ultra on and turn on RTX and the performance is whacked. I have not read much on performance tuning yet, and the developers have been working with NVidia and will tune the performance over time, I'm sure.

The 2080 is slightly faster than a 1080 Ti in most applications. It is quite a bit faster than a 1080 Ti in Vulcan, for what that is worth. If you are looking for strong 1440p performance and you are willing to spend a little bit more than a 1080 Ti, then the 2080 is your choice, to save the extra expense from buying a 2080 Ti. And the 1080 Tis are becoming harder to find now, so they are going up in prices.

If I won $2000 in the lotto, I would buy a 2080 Ti tomorrow. As it is, I am waiting and watching the 2080 prices and may buy one in the new year. I have the money in the bank, but my 1080 is doing okay for now. I have a 27" 1440p 144 hz gsync Predator monitor, so my choice in GPU is focused on the NVidia ecosystem.

As for brands, I have had good experience with EVGA and Gigabyte. Currently running an EVGA 1080 FE card with an Arctic Accellero cooler self installed. Previously owned 2 Gigabyte cards, a 1070 and a 970, never had an issue with either.

In the end you have to decide what to do. Good luck.

These questions are impossible to answer unless you have a crystal ball. Buy what you can afford at the best performance level for your use.

A friend has the Zotac, his fans never stop spinning. that's a no from me.
The EVGA seems small for the amount of heat it generates, that's a no.

ASUS Strix cards are nice and beefy, my 1070 was huge, a friends 2080 is also big. that has my vote. Not sure if that's what you mean by 'astrix'.

Wait a minute, isn't the FTW3 like 2.75 slots thick? That's even too small for you?

I think he means the 1080 EVGAs which were mostly 2 slot(ish). The 2080Ti EVGAs are massive and IMO, ugly as hell now :(

someone told me some things i want to tell me what he means;;
Try NOT to buy one using the Nvidis FE pcb layout. Almost all the issues plaguing the 20 series sems to be from FE standard bosrds.

he means that 2080 ti cards arent not compatible with all the motherboards:;;;;

This. You can't predict what game requirements will be in 2+ years. But given current industry trends and extrapolating from a little bit of history... I'd say a 2080ti will be well more than you need for 1440p for quite a while. I currently run a GTX 1080 and I have absolutely no issues @ 1440p, and no desire/need to upgrade anytime soon. I'd say that a 1080ti or a 2080 would be better picks for that use. But it sounds like you're determined to buy a 2080ti, so you'll be fine.

No, this has nothing to do with a motherboard. He's telling you not to buy a 'Founders Edition' 2080ti, as they seem to be starting on fire at random. But none of those cards you listed are FE cards, so they 'should' be fine.

so if i will buy 2080 ti for 1440p will hold me for 4 years ;; also which card to buy from these 3
astrix 2080 rtx ti

Evga Ftw3 2080 ti
msi rtx trio 2080 ti


;; which you believe has better
better cooling systems, custom pcbs with more power phases and binned chips (nvidia sells two different chips to the classical cheaper manufacturers and "-A" which is cherry picked and pulls better oc).l;;;;;
