Looking like a significant step forward in technology (and price):
Founders editions are looking crazy expensive with a $100 price markup on everything but the 2080 Ti (which add a $200 premium). Regular editions are looking ‘better’ at:
- RTX 2070: $599 US;
- RTX 2080: $799 US;
- RTX 2080 Ti: $1,199 US;
Newegg has them for preorder in Canada with the non-Founders version of the 2080 sitting at ~$1100 CDN and the non-Founders version of the 2080 Ti at ~$1700 CDN. That’s a large chunk of change, either way you cut it.
“The 2080 Ti Founders Edition will get you 11GB of GDDR6 RAM and a card running at a base clock of 1,350 MHz and a “boost” clock of 1,635 MHz. It will include 4,352 CUDA cores and 352-bit memory bandwidth running at 616 GB/sec. The more affordable 2080 Founders Edition actually clocks faster, at a “boost” clock of 1,800 MHz, but with 8GB of GDDR6 RAM. That memory operates with 256-bit bandwidth running at 448 GB/sec, and the card includes 2,944 CUDA cores.”
These cards also have the VR USB-C VirtualLink port on them (as far as I understand it) which will be available in the next gen of VR devices.
Really wish I could afford the 2080 Ti! I might have to settle for the regular ole 2080 - I am thinking that I might need a motherboard/CPU/memory upgrade coming in 6-months or so.
