The Real Cost of Buying Outdated Tech
Let's say you are building a new system or planning a major upgrade and you need to buy a new video card this fall. You could buy the last-generation GTX 1080 Ti for as little as $526, but if you do, you won't be able to take advantage of key RTX features like real-time ray tracing and great 4K gaming performance until your next upgrade.

this is just...

Man, the US senate should pass a law that obligates news websites to disclose if an article is paid promotion or not. I'm from a third world country and we have that already. On any news site published here, when an article is sponsored, at the top of it should appear a line that goes by "article sponsored by X company" or something like that.

There's nothing that's going to look life-changingly better on a 20XX series than my GTX1060, certainly not for the next 6~12 months.

I'm considering buying one senpai. Currently I use a GTX970 which works for all my usual games, but it's really not good enough for VR. Of course I will wait for benches, but I guess if the price of the 2070 is around a 1080 and the performance is about the same, I will go for the 2070 for better performance with higher resolutions.

assuming novideo isnt just blowing smoke (or raytracing smoke) up everyone's ass, the reality is that no games will use this for at least 4-5 years, and by then, the RTX 7080 with ray tracer 3.0 will be out and the 2080 will be obsolete.
