Curious how the 2070 will stand against the 1080ti - Also curious how much stock will be left of the 1080ti's by the end of October as well.
Since the 1080ti is virtually identical to the 2080 in performance, my guess is that it's going to be worse, but support the RTX extensions that most of us don't care about.

For the price of this card and the small amount of increased fps compared to my 1080 Ti FTW3. No thanks, Ill stick with my card for the next few years until these cards get much better, and faster. The current price of $1200 is beyond what these cards are worth.

The 2080 is the same price, more or less, than the 1080ti, is more futureproof, and does a bit better. If you're buying now, buying the 1080ti makes no sense.

As for you, do you routinely buy a new graphics card every year? You have the most powerful of the last generation. How many people actually buy a new card every gen? Did you also have a 980ti? Most people wait at least 2, if not 3, if not 4 or even 5 generations to upgrade. Unless you're demanding 4k or VR, 3 seems to be the sweet spot.

Sorry, but I disagree. I just bought a MSI 1080 ti new for under $400. With those prices it is asinine to purchase the 20xx cards.

Indeed, I'm seeing new 1080ti's upwards of $150-200+ (CAD) cheaper then entry level board partner 2080s (example: non strix Asus 2080). That's just browsing for a couple minutes comparing, there are likely even better deals with a little research.

I'm not looking to buy, so not really price shopping, but the cheapest 1080ti on Newegg is $675. The cheapest 2080 is $750.
I've been holding off buying a card to see how these turned out. I just put in an order for the EVGA 1080TI SC Black Edition. Even if the 2080 is a $100 more, I don't think it's worth it especially if it's going to be a pos Zotech card. I think a 12gb EVGA card with good samsung memory is a better bet at this point.

I have never been able to get Freesync working properly with my rx480. It's enabled on my monitor, but I still get awful tearing if I turn vsync off and nothing feels smooth. I cap FPS at 60 or 75, always looks and feels terrible.

FDEV should have understood that people outfitting their ships for exploration would be royally pissed over having to deal with Thargoids... my guess is most of the ships probably weren't outfitted with any weapons and/or shieldless. Maybe FDEV is just trying to reinforce the "Dangerous" part these days.

I feel like this type of game should not come out before net code has been hardened to a level where you can reasonably have 100 players. That does not seem to be the case here based on what I've been reading.

Unbelievable, another nut case kid with mental health issues that got passed though the system and no one acted upon this kid knowing he was mentally messed up.

And on top of that he was sold two guns the previous month. I mean, how the fricking hell does someone with a know mental problem get sold weapons? The system is so screwed up. Gun shop owners should be held accountable and made to be more stringent on who they sell weapons to.

Im not against the 2nd amendment or taking weapons away. I have my own weapons. but they really need to fix the system so these types cant get a hold of guns so easily.

It's a bullshit excuse used by the GOP to protect the weapon manufacturers. Fact is most gun crime are crimes of passion. So way more people who are "normal" are shooting other people simply because they said yes to the wrong impulse. If you start giving psych evaluations to everyone where does the cutoff begin? You can't accurately predict who's going to snap and go on a shooting spree and who isn't. Guy in Las Vegas was a perfect example of that. Replay any of these mass-shooting scenarios and replace the guns with a blade or club and you're not going to see anything close to the sort of harm that's done with guns.

The reality is, if you allow everyone to arm themselves to the teeth and do that in public this is going to happen. It does happen in the US every single day now. It's so common in fact most of it doesn't even make the new anymore. Yet, in countries with stringent gun controls you don't see anything remotely close to what's going on in the US. So blame it on mental health all you like, hell even change the laws on it, but you're not going to see these things stop when everyone and his dog is walking around strapped.
Well said. Having lived in both Canada and the US, I have to say there are no fewer crazy people in Canada, just fewer guns to contribute to deadly crimes of passion. Lots of knifing attacks in my old town, but rarely resulted in death.

Free speech won't be affected but idiots passing off bullshit as real might.

He definitely toes the line of free speech and libel, but it gets me really uncomfortable when guys like this are silenced. He's just someone with a lot of bad ideas that should be ridiculed, not silenced. I certainly don't want Google, Apple and Facebook deciding what should be censored and what shouldn't, our news and information streams flow too much through these companies to begin with. They should not have the power to censor what we consume on a whim- We may not loose any sleep over Alex Jones going away, but it sets a terrible prescident.

Well of course Apple and Apple users are dicks. I'm surprised they didn't go with Galileo or Newton instead.

I guess this proves there is always an opportunity to take pot shots at Apple & Apple users no matter the subject. Cutter, you are a piece of garbage, but that's been obvious for the past decade of reading your drivel on this site.

Backdoor crypto mining should have a no tolerance policy. Ban the developer for life. I have not released anything on steam, but developer accounts should be tied to real people that have to be verified by some process.

I figured this was going to turn into a NMS appreciation thread. To continue improving the game this far out after all the launch shit went down is truly impressive. I don't have the game or plan to buy it, but can't stand how horribly entitled gamers can be... those guys didn't deserve the level of backlash they got.

Oh, I think they ABSOLUTELY deserved the backlash they got, initially.
My issue was with the prolonged effort to destroy the guy's life. Gamers have every right to get mad, boycott, etc. But threatening people and doing everything in their power to destroy them is an unfortunate trait of the gaming community.

I learned my lesson with early access games once, and once is enough. I'll never give any more than $20 to a kickstarter again. I know of people who spent upwards of $1000 (some a lot more) to fund Shroud of the Avatar three years before it released and that didn't turn out too well for them.

Only game I backed that I regretted was Shroud of the Avatar. Garriot wanted to do what Roberts was doing so bad, but it never panned out quite so well for him. That said, I think the funds they got required them to be frugal and they got it done, which I admire. My disappointment is that Pillars of Eternity is a much better game and hits those single player Ultima urges better. I never wanted to be a part of a weird online community for a mostly crappy game.

Yeah, I don't understand the hate.
I think the hate was mostly around how arrogant she got. To anyone interested in fighting, her fame never came close to meeting her perceived skill level. Since leaving the sport she once "dominated", she's now doing fake fighting, something her detractors can latch on to easily. Add to that she dated (married?) a guy accused of spousal abuse.

I don't hate her, but I don't spend much time looking into anything associated with her, this thread being the exception.

I'm sure Tencent's interest in all of this had something to do with Bluehole dropping the suit. The reality is that Tencent is going to majority own Fortnight and PUBG in the next year or so.

That's like saying that George R.R. Martin is taking too long on the next Game of Thrones book, so an HBO writer should write it instead, and then try to claim that he wasn't the original author because he has a publishing company. Just let the court decide, rather than looking at the world all, "I like Guy A more than Guy B, so Guy A is totes right ya'll!"
There are a ton of details that your analogy does not consider. That said, I agree that we should just let the courts figure it out. From my perspective, it seems like Stardock is operating in good faith and the original creators are not. Stardock bought the IP with the obvious intention to make a game. There has been absolutely no movement on the IP for over 30 years so it's a stretch for me to see any damages this might cause Fred and Paul. It's not certain that Star Control is even a profitable IP at this point, Star Dock took a risk spending any money on this.
