Questions and Answers

  • Question: Hi,

    I'm stuck on a gtx 980 and willing to pay the piper on the exorbitant prices for the upcoming rtx cards. My question is, should I get the normal or ti version? Based on my specs as listed below.

    Intel Core i7-5930K 3.5GHz 6-Core (Can OC)
    Corsair H100i 77.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler
    MSI X99S GAMING 9 AC EATX LGA2011-3 MOBO
    Corsair DOMINATOR Platinum 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR4-2800
    Corsair Platinum 860W ATX12V / EPS12V (Modular PSU)

    Due to being in Europe they're extra pricey. And the 2080 is at 1000€ while 2080ti is around 1400€. Ideally I'd stick to the 2080 - but would it be worth going beyond my means for the 2080ti? I'm thinking pay 400 more and make the card last longer and save money that way by holding off upgrades for when rtx & 4k does become a thing. As for what I want to use it for; I'd be happy with 1080p but wouldn't mind some 4k gaming at 60fps either. Though I'd like to make the choice on what's best based around the rest of my specs.

    Would love some help in deciding!

    SilverDealer said:
    That's good and I can certainly appreciate the wisdom in that. But I'm in a bit of a unique situation, due to starting a job in January. Meaning I'll have plenty of time to game before that and subsequently less after that. So, I'd just like to grab the 2080 or 2080ti at release and wonder based on the information available and my specs, which one is more suitable? 8 or 11 GB if we need to simplify it as much as possible.


    Do take a look at my thread: http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-3769652/gtx-1080-sli-rtx-2080.html

    I'm taking a close look at RTX 2080 Ti for benchmarks & real-world performance. Ultimately "4K" or not will matter considerably in your choice; and then again - how much fps you want to push. I don't think any of this can be determined without factual benchmarks.

    If you absolutely cannot wait & need to pick one up today (pre-order), my GTX 1080 on 4K did not meet my expectations, but isn't unplayable either. Gives me a good mix of Ultra & High Settings for most games, with smooth playback, but fps isn't great. 30fps - 60fps depending on complexity of scene. I'm sure 2080 will give you better (I can't say how much) fps at fully maxed settings for most games (maybe not all), but if you want to play it safe and get the max fps you can, at the max settings, for almost all games, then it will have to be 2080 Ti.

    Again, only real benchmarks will tell. I'm looking at 2080 Ti primarily to see if the above turns out to be the case - then I'll go for it. Otherwise the K price tag in my opinion is not justified and I'll skip this generation & hold on to my GTX 1080 for another year.
