Don't forget to add ~20% VAT for EU buyers.

Welcome to Nvidia pure monopoly.

Indeed.

 

I predict the RTX2070 prices will be between $500 and $750. If the lower end price is lower, I will be surprised. Higher, I won't be.

"A fool and his money are easily parted".

The 1070 was the smart buy for Nvidia users last gen. (SLI = more power than the titan on alot of titles). So wait out the turkey shoot.

RTX sounds like a gimmick. Ray Tracing would have to be supported by the games to get the benefits out of it. And the speed at which it happens is still far too slow for action paced games.

 

Looks like Nvidia is pulling an AMD by launching new tech that nobody has developed for......

Adored TV to the rescue!

grain of salt... but still  huge jump for 2080 Ti rrp price

should be comparing the 1080ti instead:

I'd still wait a while for actual good data on benchmarks get released before making judgement

I said it when AMD was doing it and the same goes for Nvidia: Buying a pre-order video card is fucking retarded.  You spend more money than needed on unknown performance. 

Wait for reviews, wait for the price to normalize. What you have now will last you another month.

Not sure if it’s crazy or not. Weren’t the 1080ti’s the same at release?

I purchased mine on the tail end of that craze only to see a couple weeks later they were half the price, so I’ll wait for these to come down this time around 😀

Prices on pascal have dropped way down, should be more than enough to play any game out for a couple of years...

$370 for this one. I'm lying in wait because I really do not see the need for more GPU horsepower ATM. I'm contributing to a new rig fund and if the benchmarks and prices influence me either way, I'll get a 1080 ti or the 2070 ti and continue saving for when SC finally releases

Nvidia scrapped their Titan lineup.

https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/titan/titan-v/

Granted, it's Volta and it's $3000 HBM2 memory, whatever that is

Then there's the TITAN xp: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/titan/titan-xp/

w/GDDR5X memory

apparently, there's still a market someplace.

That's the last generation. It's been around awhile. The 2080ti is the new Titan card, 2080 is the "TI" and 2070 is the "80". Nvidia hasn't been very clear about this but emails from insider sources have confirmed this is what they have done and it reflects the prices which align with previous gen cards.

Pricing puts the new 2080 Ti as the titan,

I would accept this.

BTW, initial 2080 benchmarks suggest much more than the 1080 ti, however, grain of salt, of course.

While nvidia's benchmarks suggest 50% improvement over the 1080 ti

Block of salt

      AMD has a utility program that will help you do many things with the Ryzen and Threadripper chips - like turn off hyperthreading (the core disable feature) to give you better single core performance.
