For gamer, waiting for next gen of cards is the right choice. Let's see what's price tags of AMD and Nvidia's new flagship cards. just lost my count (y) RTX 20xx cards, has accelerate command in cuda. With 88 ROPs and 11Gb memory, a cost efficient | enter level | deep-learning machine could be build with 2of this cards in Sli. Much cheaper than titan, Quadro or tesla :(
Surely you mean a price below 4 digits?
The gtx 1080 and the 1080ti are both still great cards, I was surprised how comparable the RTX 2060 super is with the the abilities of the GTX 1080, the RTX 2060 super seems like a GTX 1080 with ray tracing options.
The next gen of consoles should hopefully bring a nice 4k high to ultra 60fps gaming experience as opposed to the current consoles, 30fps with quite often lots of tricks and visual compromise to display in 4k, but I find even 1440p upscaled to 4k looks great visually, I've just bought a rtx 2060 supper as a stop gap card, I'm going to sell my RTX 2080ti whilst prices are high, I buy and resell PC parts for a living, so my RTX 2080ti was bought at a bargain price, with a nice profit to be had, even after using it for the past 10 months or so, but I'd rather cash in ahead of the crowd and hope that the RTX 3080 is a good price and is perhaps a bit faster than the 2080ti, which suits my 4k 60fps gaming setup.
You are same as me then! I am on 1080ti and play all the games I like on PC ultra wide and I am very happy with my experience. I too can't justify the price of this card but I understand this card is not aimed at people like me.
