This is definitely a decent deal if you're building a $3k+ gaming rig.

Great price (comparing the usual 2080ti pricing.....), but I'd only recommend a 2080ti for those that just have the cash to burn or are running a resolution like 4k or trying to get closer to 144hz on a 2k monitor for competitive gaming.

It's about 50%-60% more expensive than a 2080 but returns roughly 20%-25% increase in performance. I feel there is a factor of diminishing returns that needs to be considered for any 2080ti purchase.

2080ti to 2080 and other card comparison techpowerup

Thats how I try to buy my GPUs as best as I can. For example, if the 2080 is 900.00, then to get best performance to dollar ratio the 2080ti should be around 1125-1200.

Folks wondering... you won't get solid 4K 144FPS on a single RTX 2080TI.

You need (2x) NVLinked RTX 2080TIs.

The good news? It'll only cost you $2800 + tax, compared to $4,000+ on release.

Honestly, nothing is going to get you 144 fps @ 4K. Except in games that are graphically simply (like LoL) a solid 60 fps @ 4K requires top-level hardware.

Actually, NVLinking the TI's will get you pretty damn close in some games, save the bleeding edge AAAs like Tomb Raider Max Ultra and a few other games.

I've actually seen as low as 75fps in some games.

That said 4K G-Sync'ed 144Hz keeps things pretty buttery even at that fps.

I don't play fancy games but Overwatch, APEX, R6... All at ultra, 4k and I get a steady 60FPS with my 2070. Dips to 50ish are very very very rare but I've seen a few times.

Do you feel you'd benefit more from 144hz high fps gaming for something like Overwatch compared to 60fps 4k? I would figure, 4k is actually more towards those who want to play more fancy (looking) games rather than fast paced where you'll probably not hang around long enough to admire the flowers :)

I honestly regret getting a 4k monitor. It's big and sweet looking but I sit about 60cm from it. I've tried a 2k monitor and you can't see the difference. Having a 2k monitor would make the GPU's life easier and thus spending less.

Now, I don't think 144Hz would benifit in OW but in games like R6, yes, I think. When I bought my current screen, it took about 2 weeks to adjust myself and become good again.

I hear ya, I first bought a 3440x1440 100hz monitor, but driving that optimally (which I wasnt at all) without investing a significant amount in the top end GPU was not practical. I moved that monitor to productivity, net surfing etc.

I picked up a 2560x1080 144hz curved 34 inch around the holiday season (I love playing games in this widescreen format), and it didnt take too long to readjust. I just pushed the monitor about a foot further down my desk so decrease any visual differences, increase my field of vision and couldnt be happier. Much easier to drive (so less cost) and games feel better at the high refresh rates (more fluid feeling).

I tried to lower the resolution from 3440x1440 to 2560x1080, but it just looked awful especially now that I can compare between the 2 panels, native trumps simulated resolution and I think thats well known.

More questions from folks.

What is the optimal retina panel in 2019 from a price-performance perspective?

Answer: 1440P G-Sync 144Hz @ 27" or 32" (depending on viewing distance)

(1x) 2080TI ensures rock solid 144+ FPS under Max Ultra in most games.

Glad I checked this out, my 1080ti will last me a good while longer then - only AAA title I really play is TD2 @ 1440p and I maintain a stable 60fps on high with ambient occ and motion blur off.
