Also, keep your eyes peeled for the new AU Optronics 1440p @ 240hz panels starting to get announced, I'm expecting to see them make an appearance on monday too.
lol @ AU Optronics
You do realize that every panel they have produced up to now is complete garbage, right? They have MASSIVE quality issues with BLB but worst of all pixel errors galore and dust particle enclosures. Nothing like buying a $1000+ display and then finding out it has two or three dead pixels.
Just check user reviews of any AU Optronics display or threads in corresponding forums. Those displays are so poor quality they're not even worth recycling.
Finally, 240Hz sounds like TN. Ugh. Don't people have actual standards anymore? I guess not when you are seriously considering AU Optronics. Might as well go with a TN panel since it doesn't really matter whether you have a fucked up TN, IPS or VA panel. Fucked up is fucked up.
As for RTX 2080(Ti), I'm sure at this point we can just wait for the reveal on Monday.
I would not be surprised at all if they would in fact reveal the Ti from the start this time.
Turing is probably late because of the mining craze (I'm sure they wanted it out in May but couldn't pull it off) so nVidia might be in a hurry to get out the full line-up ASAP this fall.
Also, TSMC has been making great progress with their 7nm process by all accounts so 12nm RTX 2xxx will probably be a rather short-lived affair and might get replaced by 7nm parts around the same time next year (Q3). RTX 2xxx will probably be old news again in 12 months or maybe even less depending on what AMD does.
That's also why I would not bet on something like HDMI 2.1 to be on this generation of cards. They might as well save that stuff for next year when AMD might also begin offering HDMI 2.1 on their next generation cards.
No need at all for nVidia to push this now, especially since they got their own 65" BFGDs
coming up first.
Edit: OK, just spotted some leaked datasheets
from triple fan PNY RTX 2080 and 2080Ti cards. The source is the official PNY website so, yes, both cards will definitely be revealed on Monday. According to the sheets the PNY RTX 2080 series will have HDMI 2.0b. This comment was edited on Aug 18, 2018, 02:04.
