Definitely not worth the $200+ over the 1070 MSRP.

Of course I just bought my 1070 for $230 used, which makes it an awesome bang for buck.

Why compare it to the 1070? Pricewise it's a replacement for the 1080, not the 1070.

I agree, it has awful bang for the buck, but so did the 1080 and some here still bought it.

Because I'm comparing directly to the performance boost over last gen... the extra 200+ for what you get isn't worth it, IMO. If it was like a 2x boost... then yeah... but it's not. We're used to getting a decent boost each gen (within the same-ish model as the last gen) with a similar price point for the next gen. Especially since the last gen is 2 years old. Is the RTX 2070 a decent performance boost? Yes. Is it worth a $200+ premium over the last gen? Hell No. The techspot averages a 27% increase in performance compared to the 1070, but the MSRP price is 57% increase ($380 -> $599). Even $380 to $499 is a 31% increase in price. So the price is way out of wack.

What one is really paying for is early access / future proofing of ray tracing, which never pays off. By the time there will be enough ray tracing games to support, the tech will be in 2nd or 3rd gen from the current RTX 20xx.

Nvidia is smoking some good shit with this pricing.

Well... unlike the xbone I don't have to be logged in to do anything... matter of fact the only time I login to Sony is to buy and download a single player game... otherwise I am always signed out. Prime is it's own account and so is Hulu.

That said.. I already set all the privacy stuff to maximum a long time ago when I first set it up.

The question is why bother. It looks like barf...

For nostalgia, I wouldn't mind playing a version that works on a modern OS and with modern resolutions, even with the legacy sprite world.

Well, if the game is half as good as that trailer makes it... I'll be satisfied for my $25 original backing.
Really? I mean it was a quality trailer, they did a good job. But looking at the trailer and hoping the game would be anywhere close to what you see is like watching one of the WoW trailers and thinking WoW would be like that. It just isn't so.

I wasn't referring to any "wow factor". I was referring to a modern day Wing Commander... which the trailer makes it look on target.

Have no intention of playing the MMO though. I was only looking for a modern Wing Commander game when I backed this.

$500 for a 2070? Nah.

Just bought a used GTX 1070 for $230. 5 month old card from a cryptominer. Not a bad bump from my GTX 680, and the price was right. As I said before... I only game at 1080p and have no desire to buy a new monitor.

Ridiculous Pricing for what you get in performance improvement is the real problem. The improvement is there as it is with any new generation... in this case it's just not worth it. Also, $350-ish for a 2060 next year ain't gonna fly either.

DLSS implementation will ultimately decide whether or not these cards are worth the price of admission in regards to performance and ray tracing is still too much of a pipe dream to really get excited about.

...Flip on DLSS in a compatible game engine

Since DLSS also has to be supported by a developer, I'm not convinced it's worth the "price of admission" either.

Since I only game at 1080, my GTX 680 has lasted quite a while and only on a few modern games do I have to turn some settings down.

That said... the GTX 1070 is 2x the speed of my GTX 680 and has come down to Launch MSRP finally ($380). If it gets closer to $300 when the 2070 is available... that may be my ticket. There's practically zero need for a ray-tracing card now... we'll see how the game support works out over the next generation cards.

Firefox on my Android phone too, I give enough to Google by using Android, they don't get to have my browsing data to boot.

LOL

Using Firefox on an Android device doesn't stop Google from getting your browsing data. All kinds of APP telemetry goes to Google, Your Carrier, and the APP vendor. It's called "DNS Lookups". Unless you have some secure / encrypted DNS service installed at the OS level (rooted)... your browsing data is known to at least the 3 entities I just mentioned, and nny other APP that is allowed to look at that specific telemetry.

Pretty sure mostly everyone is seriously critical. There are no jokes about Valve's game development production.

In some games, players who are willing to pay for special items or downloadable content may be able to gain a significant advantage over those playing for free who, for example, would otherwise need to spend time progressing in order to unlock said items. Such games are called "pay-to-win" or "p2w" by critics.

The fact that they took 50 people at a station, put them in various ships, some holding like 20 and flew them to another planet for Battlefield-like combat, all without loading screens is crazy impressive technically, regardless of the latency.

Are you sure?

I mean, the video cuts to different perspectives like every 5 seconds... you aren't seeing this from perspective of a single player... loading screens could have been easily edited out.

Not claiming they were edited out for sure, given RSI goals... but it is hard to tell from that video.
