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.

Been a reader of Toms for many many years; I was surprised at that article. It felt out of place for topics/ideas they usually write about. Felt way to sponsored, random, and to click-baity for them, IMO anyway.
cyberguyz from the hardforum said:
"Toms Hardware and Anandtech (now under the same big-box ownership) were actually a couple of the top go to sites when they were still owned by Tom Pabst and Anand Al-Shimpi. Nowadays I hardly ever tune in to Tom's and only bother with Anandtech when they have an actual in-depth tech article (getting really rare). Most of the time both sites end up being product promotion sites with 1-pager product announcements. Sad."

Come on dude it's right there.

What I'll more than likely do if prices remain insane is trade off my 1080 and throw in some cash on top of it for my friend's 1080 Ti since he builds computers out of used hardware and call it a day.

US pre-orders for 3rd party cards have been up for a little bit now, most are sold out. All for $1200+ for the Ti across the board. Without any benchmarks, or even so much as knowing what the fucking core frequency will be... blood in the water, they don't give a fuck. It's been so long since the last gen people will buy it regardless.
Now they've proven that they'll sell @ $1200 for a Ti minimum, that's the baseline. $999 is a fucking dream. And that USD, I can't wait to see the $1600-$1700 Canadian variants.
This is a shit show, too bad, cause the BFV demo walkthrough looked incredible

What I'd really like to see is Diablo FPS. I want to shoot firebolts and chain lightning at demons!
That didn't go so well.

Torchlight 2 is a terrible game. We just replayed it and gave it a fair chance, but after a while we just alt+f4'ed out of the game never to return. Because of that, I'm not too excited about this... They better have learned from their mistakes and competition.

It's on track to lose several hundred million dollars. $350 in theater sales isn't much when compared to a $250 million original budget + $200 million reshoot budget + $150 million marketing budget. (I'm taking those numbers from a YouTube film critic's video,
