The answer is no, duh. Unless you live on the bleeding edge then that is your thing, otherwise you'd be insane to waste money on a card that is gonna be outdated when AMD responds
HAAAHAAHAAHAHA!!! You had me until "AMD." What makes you think they can compete? They haven't "responded" in over 10 years.

Even if AMD doesn't respond in a competitive way (see Burrito's post) I'm sure once the step to 7 nm is taken Nvidia will quickly dump the 20X0 series. They have good reason to release the Ti together with the standard 2080: 7 nm is going to be here next year and with it an updated, entirely new line of GPUs. The 2080 chips are huge and expensive to make (one reason for the insane asking price; but the stupid customer/NV fanboy pays anyway...)

That said, It's worth reading the PCWorld article. Long story short: No, for most of us it makes no sense upgrading to a 2080 Ti because unless you have a very high end monitor that can push >60 fps @ 4k all the GPU power goes to waste.

Is it just me or does the FPS take a gigantic hit when RT is on? Gigantic as in bearable in a tech demo but not in an actual gameplay scenario. Considering this is a >1000 2080 Ti struggling at only 1080p.... ouch.

News Comments > Subnautica: Below Zero Revealed

This is a must buy for me. I'm about to start my fourth play-through. The first was stopped by an unfinished game during early access, the 2nd was completed and on my 3rd I got my ass kicked from behind by an angry Ghost leviathan while repairing my Cyclops 500 meters down, with over 25 hours on the game clock, "hardcore" difficulty. Ooops, I perma-died after 25 hours of resource gathering, vehicle and base building.
I can't get bored of this game somehow...

Are there any games that take advantage of real time ray tracing?

Yes. Battlefield 5, Metro Exodus... just to name a couple.

Wait, Battlefield 5 is confirmed? I've read about Metro Exodus, but there's no "real" proof, other than it will eventually be supported, to my eyes nothign at launch, which is still a ways off, so just seems like bullshit to me until I see something more official from the devs.

I caught this metro trailer last night saying that it'll have ray tracing, I didn't realise that this trailer was supposedly SHOWING OFF the raytracing.

Just like DX12, if the game isn't built from the ground-up to support it, this tacked-on shit doesn't impress me at all, I honestly didn't see anything impressive about that metro trailer, just looks like a current gen console game with a slightly nicer PC treatment.

The devs are experimenting with RT in early builds. So, there is a pretty high chance RT will make it into the final game. I only have a link to the German PCGames Hardware site. In their screenshot RT is off but they're using a 1080 Ti.

I was a alpha and beta tester of these games and warlords was rushed out the door so the devs could release DLC. LGM are good devs that listen to the fans. I can't except the devs rushing the alpha and beta process so they can push the DLC out the door. I'm sure the that Iceberg put pressure on LGM to do this. Warlords will be the last game I buy in the Starpoint series. Starpoint 2 was better in story also. Warlords had nothing new in terms of story. It was just a graphics upgrade with DLC.

Alas, I have to agree. The story of Warlords is pretty weak. In fact I've only kept playing to level up and get better ships... even purchased the Titans DLC when it was on sale but it's just a little more of the same. Never finished my Warlords playthrough because I lost interest at some point. I'm currently looking forward to the release of release X4: Foundations.

The company initially claimed that the new 15-inch MacBook Pro is up to 70 percent faster than its predecessor

And it is. For five seconds. Then it's 30 percent slower due to thermal throttling.

In its promotional material, Spotlite said an up-front investment of $3,400 would generate earnings of $375 a month for two years by mining Bitcoin.

However, critics said the promised profits did not take into account that mining Bitcoin is becoming increasingly difficult.

ROFL!!! So people in their infinite greed and stupidity bought this thing.

There might be a big drop in graphics card prices next month ... that might bring them back down to the original MSRP from about two years ago?

Thanks but no thanks.

Originally backed this, but once I saw it was turned based, I dumped this piece of shit. I wanted a true successor to the last Bards Tale that came out. not another fucking tuned based game.

Theirs just far to many of these types of games anymore. Its getting ridiculous! Playing Turned based games makes you feel like some old decrepit old man who cant keep up with real-time games anymore.

Turned-based is the reason why I backed this game LOL

it's a sign of the times that it's newsworthy when they are not part of a new game's design

Spot on comment. Couldn't agree more. To me it's also a sign of knowing when to quit gaming, perhaps for good. It's not as bad yet because there are still many indie developers with excellent products and there is plenty of great abandonware stuff available. But with all the AAA titles getting commercialized to the max I'm glad to have other hobbies.

Good to know that PoE2 will get a console release. I'll pass in this case. Shifting focus to other platforms will only make the PC game (and most likely the console ports too) suffer. They did it right with PoE1 with console ports released 1-2 years after the PC game. Rockstar did it right with GTA V, consoles first and EXCELLENT PC port released years after...
