I was thinking about that. This might be a perfect opportunity for the used market. Obviously there is going to be a price drop. On top of that a select number of people not caring out budget are going to immediately want to sell their RTX 2080 ti's and they aren't going to be able to sell them used for the reduced price because you might as well just purchase new at that point. That being said, you might be seeing RTX 2080 TI's being sold anywhere from 50-70% of the original MSRP. Those select number of people are going to just want to get rid of their RTX 2080 TI to have the latest and greatest.IMO, the prices are definitely going to drop for sure as well, for the previously released RTX GPUs. They can't sell the SUPER series for the same price.
I was actually referring to the existing RTX GPU lineup, which might get a price drop, mostly the new models, not used. Though, I wouldn't be surprised if the current RTX GPU owners are going to sell their cards at a heavy discounted price on Ebay, or Amazon etc.I was thinking about that.

Good point, I think both you and I were talking about the pre-existing non-super variants (correct me if i'm wrong). To clarify, the 50-70% off current msrp had the price drop already factored in. This calculation is purely speculative, based on how much they dropped msrp with the 1000 series so definitely take this with a grain of salt. They are barely used and to be discounted that much is just something I cannot overlook, especially because of how new they are and the small percentage in performance increase of the super variant. eBay buyers could ask for all of the warranty information or somehow get everything transferred. I wonder how this could be done. Do you or anyone on this thread have experience dealing with used graphics cards and dealing with transferring seller warranty support? My bad for steering off topic.I was actually referring to the existing RTX GPU lineup, which might get a price drop, mostly the new models, not used.

The used second hand market is going to bloom I think, lol. But will gamers really buy the OLD RTX Models, unless they get them at half the price ?
What about other GPU brands ?I think mostly you CANNOT transfer the warranty, in the US. SOME models of EVGA cards allow warranty transfer, but I get the impression that's only if it was bought from EVGA. Even then, I'm not clear if it has to be bought directly from EVGA's site, or if you could also do it if EVGA was the seller on Amazon, Ebay, etc.
No, I think according to WCCFTech, the Ti SUPER variant also exists. To quote their article::The Nvidia Super was leaked, but it is not too "Super"........2080 TI didnt change
Oh snap! I'm going to actually consider getting that one if it's actually 'super'.The Nvidia Super was leaked, but it is not too "Super"........2080 TI didnt change
Why won't you use ray tracing?Oh snap! I'm going to actually consider getting that one if it's actually 'super'.
I'm still put-off by the ray tracing feature, though. Paying such a premium price for the primary feature I won't use.
Dang it, what I really want is a 1680ti SUPER...
Due to to the current limitations. A 2080ti, a 1440p and up card, struggles with 100+fps with RTX ON at 1080p, which doesn't look as nice as RTX OFF at 1440p or 4k... not that impressive in it's current iteration.Why won't you use ray tracing?
This is the exact reason why I chose to purchase a used GTX 1080 ti right after the price inflated RTX launch.Due to to the current limitations.

Once they've got it high refresh(100hz+) playable(whenever that happens), I won't mind using it at all.
I guess it's something to screw around with every once in a while.
that's only true for gamer.implementing ray tracing isn't worth it for the performance impact
how many games support DX11 tessellation on the first year of DX11?and not many games support rtx
it's not about being impressive. the primary point of RT is to get rid of those fake effect and replace it the one that is more straight forward in implementation. long term goal is to remove all the fake effect we use right now and clean the engine code from the bloat caused by implementing those fake effect codes in game engine. let me give different example: why vulkan perform better than OpenGL? that's because the API are being clean to get rid ancient codes that preventing the API to perform optimally on modern hardware. when the game engine are much more cleaner there will be less issue and if there is any it should be much more easier for game dev to deal with. well yeah RT is still very heavy to compute but going forward it should be less an issue because IVH will definitely improve their RT core effectiveness. just like how nvidia double the performance on their tessellation engine every time they come up with new architecture.it's not that impressive either
to me it was like this: ray tracing is just a bonus feature that comes with this cards. people still pay for the rasterization performance they get from those cards. the premium? that comes from the fact that competitor can't even give you that level of performance with their best performer.so why would someone pay an extra premium to buy these rtx cards, which are overpriced as well ?
