Your chart has an error. You are showing memory frequency under memory speed for the 2070, but you have memory bandwidth listed there for the other cards. The memory speed is actually the same for the 2080 and the 2080Ti. The bandwidth is increased from the 2070s 448Gbps. You have the 2070 listed as 14Gbps, which is the memory frequency of ALL the RTX cards.

Can't forget the GTX1080 being competitively priced it's probably the best sweet spot on the high end range for GPU's. RTX2070 should ideally come close to 1080Ti performance and maybe overclocked match it for like 1070Ti price range meaning about $375-$425. I think it has to pretty much sit in that range give or take.

I think Nvidia needs to produce a Crysis-like game to actually showcase and justify the new 20-series cards. Relying on a bunch of console ports is not going to cut it. We need a new PC-busting game to take advantage of the latest hardware. I think Nvidia is wrong to rely upon companies like EA to deliver.

This card is the worst of the release. It's hard to believe this card will be fast enough for raytracing (720p anyone?) so it's hard to justify the cost increase over the 1070. If DLSS gains wide adoption then to 2070 could be a decent card. But that's a real gamble at this point. If it doesn't then paying $600 for probable 1080 performance is a dreadful proposition. 2070 is a wait and see purchase far more than the 2080 and 2080ti.

Would be perfect timing for Valve to finally release the game that shall not be named, fully designed for PC gaming.

There's a smaller difference between the 2070 and 2080, with the same memory, than the 1070 and 1080. So it should beat the 1080 easily by 10 percent unlike the 2080 being equal to the 1080 ti. Still nVidia's fake pricing is annoying. $650 I guess for board partners at launch. If they actually sold a 2 fan model for $499 instead I'd be interested.

Considering that, ray-tracing aside, the GTX 2080 & the 1080Ti are pretty much neck-and-neck (see here), it's more likely that the RTX 2070 will end up having similar performance to the GTX 1080...or possibly falling somewhere in between a 1080 & a 1080TI. Since that puts them in the same price range as the GTX 1080 (see PCPartPicker & Micro Center, for example), it's not going to be a good upgrade for those that already have a GTX 1080/1080TI...& even having a GTX 1070/1070TI isn't going to be that great of an upgrade (probably a 1-tier upgrade tops).
 

I suspect it probably won't be much more than 5% faster than a GTX 1080, since the differences in core counts between both pairs of cards are pretty similar. The 1080 Ti has about 33% more cores than a 1080, while the 2080 has about 28% more cores than a 2070, which would likely place the 2070 about 5% faster than a 1080, at last when each is clocked similar to their higher-end counterpart. They obviously don't want performance to be much closer between the 2080 and 2070, otherwise fewer people would go with the more expensive card.

But yeah, I don't expect them to be found anywhere close to $500, at least near launch. 2080 and 2080 Ti partner cards are mostly priced higher than even the Founder's Edition, so that seems likely to be the norm for this card as well, meaning they will likely cost around 30% more than a GTX 1080.


ARTIFACT: THE DOTA CARD GAME: Now, with raytraced trading cards, making it the most realistic card pack opening simulator ever.

For most people in this price bracket, buying used is a non-starter.

There were 1080 Ti deals for less than $600.. can't see how this card's pricing is anything but foolish. 1080 Ti beats it in performance, unlike the 980 Ti being equal to the 1070.

Nobody seems super impressed by this new Turding series. Well enthusiasts with deep pockets will get it anyway the rest will very likely not buy to force NV and greedy vendors to lower prices if they want to make half decent sales on it. So vote with your wallet and DON'T BUY.

cant wait till i get my hands on a EVGA RTX 2070. my 970 is dead, currently running on a old 670. so i better get the 2070 rather than 1070 ti as 2070 holds keys to the future.
 


Nvidia has many people thinking like this, which I have to give kudos to there marketing folks. If prices went up based on performance increases from the prior gen we would be paying $20,000+ per GPU if we started that back 20 years ago when Nvidia first started making GPU's. To be clear I'm saying the pricing of this 20xx generation is BS.

Unless the 2080 ti has utterly amazing RT performance, the 2070 with half the RT cores isn't going to impress in that department. If you're running a 1070-1080, it's unlikely to offer enough improvement in traditional games to let you jump a tier. Ie, go from 1440p to 4k, or 60hz to 120hz. And that's before considering the value proposition...

Toms deleted my comment about "Just buy it".......Censoring comments about your own articles is disgusting.

Unless you're looking to greatly increase your monitor resolution, take advantage of higher refresh rates, or pair the new GPU with a new & improved monitor, then replacing a dead GTX 970 with the 2070 is going to be a waste of your money. GTX 970 == GTX 1060, which is much cheaper than the 2070 will be...& even if you do need an upgrade, you'll get more for your money by even getting a GTX 1070/1070TI.
