I agree. Also, I would never spend money on a 2080 or 2080Ti, as long as they can't provide 100+ fps on ultra settings in all games. Which they don't. Even thinking about them as 4K gaming cards, is a fallacy. They simply cost too much without offering a true superior experience. It's better to stick to a 144Hz 1080p or 1440P instead, and save a ton of money. Would rather play a game on ultra settings at 1440p, than 60fps on medium settings on 4K.
Pretty much. I used to have a Zotac 1080 Ti amp, and there was never a situation where its 11GB memory helped it over my stock 2080 8GB. Its the same as people who buy an 8GB RX 570. A card like that will not really have the sufficient performance in a situation where 8GB vram is necessary, so why not just save the money and go for 4GB which is way more applicable for it. On the subject of monitors, one would be better off with an LG OLED for around £1000 than paying more for an inferior 4K 144hz monitor. Personally looking forward to the new 48" LG OLED to replace my UW. (y)
Yeah, those 11GB are useless in games (brainwashing marketing gimmick), for the processing power of the 1080Ti. It might help a 2080Ti, with major accent on MIGHT. Also funny how people think 4K gaming is something that is affordable. They think that a £400 used card will provide that. A decent 4k IPS 144Hz is starting at £1500 alone. But yeah, let them dream b/s.
Of course, but people often bring up the "but 11GB will help at 4K" argument so that's the only reason I posted 4K averages.
Problem is, none of these cards, 1080ti or 2070S are meant to be used for 4K gaming. Even 2080Ti is problematic at 4K, and it WILL NOT produce more than 60fps on high settings, in most new titles. Without question, 2070S is a much better choice over 1080Ti, because: 1. It's 27 months newer (if bought used, this will matter 1st hand) 2. It's consuming WAY LESS power. 3. It has Ray Tracing (argue if you want about this, but this is the future for light processing) 4. It has DLSS (which will provide MASSIVE boost in FPS)
