    CORRECTION: The V-Ray chart shows the GTX 1070 mislabeled as the GTX 1080 and vice-versa. Sorry about that. Just mentally flip them around and you're good.

    I don't think its RTX that's making them expensive, I think its the Tensor cores and DLSS that's driving the price up something about having a AI inside my GPU that's only active on certain games sounds expensive to me

    This video is a straight up lie, I just bought the Zotac Amp Extreme 2070 directly from Newegg for $450 (which is one off the highest overclocking 2070 models), and it came with a copy of Anthem. I've looked up benchmarks for more recent games and in multiple games I'm currently playing it mollywhops the 1080 and almost matches the 1080ti. All that plus the option to try RTX/DLSS whether I'm going to use them often or not (and who know how many games will support them) makes it a great deal in my mind.
    Hell, I think even $500 for one of the good models that aren't lower binned is fine, $550 and over is when it becomes less of a good deal, though.

    I did not intend to buy a RTX card, BUT we just had a deal here in germany that sold the Asus RTX 2070 Strix OC for 529€ + 35€cashback + 2 games (BF5orAnthem/COD).
    I belive it to be a good deal considering the Value of the bundle.
    Lets just hope it was...if the R7 costs 600€ il be somewhat mad at myself. :D

    I dont know if I can agree with this. Currenly The 2070 is 250 dollars cheaper on average than the 1080 and it seems to get slightly higher frames. I looked on amazon and new egg and most 2070s are around 500 dollars and most 1080s are at 700-800 dollars.

    Nvidia take the piss now, as for their CEO, who said some pretty nasty comments about AMD's new generation gfx cards...Well said Linus, thanks for being so honest when so many reviewers are not!!!! Nvidia totally are arrogant if think that people are going to pay that amount of money for the RTX cards.

    What he doesn't mention is that if you play VR and are using A GTX 960, the upgrade to RTX 2070 is worth it. If you already have a 1080, disregard for now.
    Also, while the 1080 series is still great, the RTX series will now be supported for the next decade with updates, RAY Trace games, ect., while 1080's support has just left the building.
    And for those whining about the price... Are you new?

      Buy an RTX, any RTX, because why would you pay the same money (or, usually, more!) for GTX-series cards? Even if Battlefield V is the only title with Ray Tracing, the rest of the tech the RTX-series brings make them not only future-proof, but a better value across the range.

    The story is different now in January 2019. The low prices for those GTX 1080 cards didn't last (I briefly saw some offered for under $375); they were a case of NVidia and its partners clearing out inventory of the previous generation. The few GTX 1080 cards that remain now cost as much as the RTX 2070, which happily can actually be found at the $500 list price or even less. A quick look at the featured products on a search for "RTX 2070" turned up five cards at exactly $499.99, including two that had promo codes to make the price even lower. Meanwhile, the cheapest GTX 1080 is $750, which is an utterly stupid price to pay for one when they will sell you an RTX 2080 for under $700.
    And now we have the announcement of the RTX 2060 with an expected price of $350. I expect the same thing to play out with the GTX 1070 and 1070Ti; bargains in the near term followed by disappearance from the market. If you want a 1070, February is likely to be a good time to buy one, or perhaps March if the 2060 cards are slow to arrive in stores.

    Man you guys are missing the point you talk about performance but never talk about graphics. Real time Ray tracing is the future I don't think you guys understand how important real-time Ray tracing is. If they can get RTX closest to rendering Package like V-ray. It will cut development time helping games studios focus more on gameplay. Right now you need about six different plugins to make a water shader look like water. Just to create global illumination they have add more lights point and play around with those lights points to create the illusion of bounce light. Having rtx do the bounce light, shadow and reflection for the devs will speed up development time. Your fixated on what it can do now but not what it will do in the future or how it going to change gaming. If you want to wait for a price that fine but write off the technology like it has no benefit is a huge mistake. People thought the electric car was a joke now look at Tesla.

    Nvidia lists the 1080ti at $699 in their store. They are of course sold out at the moment. But if they do go back on the store, I will likely get one. Better than paying the ridiculous markup that Newegg is raping us with. Their price is double, for the same reference style card on for $699. Seriously turning me away from buying any more components from them until they adjust their prices back to acceptable markup.

    This is kind of how new rendering tech always goes. First gen cards are nearly exclusively for developers and hard core enthusiasts who want to run the 1 or 2 games that support it. Without these though, you'd never have progress. Remember when the voodoo came out, it was a similar situation. RTX has the opportunity to make HUGE impacts on the visual quality of games but we devs don't roll out support for something new like this super fast, it's rather low priority due to low install rates. Basically if you weren't a part of the "in" crowd for making demos of the feature, we don't get access to this stuff before consumers do.
    I'll agree about competition though, if AMD releases a card supporting real time ray tracing it'll help the pricing. I kinda miss the old days when there were more than 2 of anything (CPU companies, gpu companies, etc).

    get this Linus.. there's a reason they started selling RTX that early and at 'high prices' ;) that RTX technology is much more of a deal than you think it is. they could have waited and earned much more money by first selling out the 10s, they're not stupid. but this has nothing to do with profits anymore. see technology has a purpose for humans and rolling out the newest technologies is just what they are purposed to do. RTX is all about Light, and the Elites are all about Enlightenment and High Quality Lifestyle. the Age of Technology is the Age of Enlightenment, modern philosophers calling it that way. don't you see how nvidia, asus and pretty much all IT companies use the EYE logo? nvidia comes from invidia and means to Look or to Receive. To receive the Light. THE WAY it's meant to be played is written next to the eye. EVERY game at startup has a warning about Light sensitivity causing seizures in the brain, why do you think that's so? that Light coming out of the screen is alchemically being fabricated in the body, through the eyes! and if one knows THE WAY it's meant to be played, he will receive more and more of that Light and transform his body. there will be Harvest from this, harvest which you cant imagine. but whos gift is that kind of Enlightenment, from God or the Devil called Lucifer the Lightbringer? i don't know..

    Too bad nVidia killed off the 1080 & 1080ti marked before 2070 launch, with absurd used marked prices in the netherlands for the 1080-1080ti (ti's gong for 650-700 euro's here and most part of west europe). I am anticipating a buy for a long time now, cant wait for the new AMD series.. no patience at all ;) So, with a budget of 575 im stuck to the 2070, and going to enjoy the hell out of it (bye 1060).
