My problem with the 2070 being more powerful than the Titan xP is that they later admitted that was in computational task not gaming... those are my concerns. I would love 100 FPS in 4k, but idk. Don’t get me wrong im probably going to pick a 2080 or a Ti up cause I know it run circles around my 1070 in Machine learn which is an area of my work skills. Call me a pessimist, but I’m expecting a 20% increase in pure frame rate though. The new gpu and a 2950x or 2979wx are on my shopping list for this fall.A smart person would wait for benchmarks right? Unfortunately when the miners owned the high performance card prices locked at unreasonable levels for most of the last two years my personal decision was easy. I would rather have the card at its suggested retail than pay over 2k in a few months. Am I jumping the gun? Will card manufacturers keep the miners at bay? I don't know, but I know I got an Asus for its suggested retail and I'm happy with it.
As for performance, once I heard the RTX 2070 will outperform the current Titan I was all in. The current GTX 1070 by itself is absolutely no slouch for gaming right now, in fact I still think its a top ten card based on performance, but pales to the Titan. The new RTX cards are your 4k friendly cards and beyond. I'm expecting 100 fps in 4K from these.
Exactly, its just like that.
I was sitting at home waiting for the flood waters outside to go down and my phone dinged with a Newegg ad and I didn't hesitate. Again, hopefully the gamers are getting them and not the miners.
Personally I would rather have a Founders, Nvidia always takes the best binned chips for the Founder Editions, plus I've always gotten them in the past and have never had any issues with them.
I just wish nvidia spent more time talking about raw game performance. Does ray face reduce frame rate? It does it have no effect. Do the tensor/rtx cores play any role in game FPS when a game doesn’t utilize the new graphics rendering mode or the Ray tracing. These are the questions I wanna know! Lol.
I will say this is the first batch of Founder Card that are worthy of the binning nvidia does. The blower coolers do not produce enough cooling to coverclock these beast like some Aftermarket coolers. I’ll probably lean towards and EVGA FTW when it comes out though.
