    If you're a few Gens behind, worth the upgrade.

    So I have been trying to hold off on writing a review for some time so I could play with the card and see what it could handle/ do and how everything looks on some graphic intense games. So far I am not disappointed. So here is a breakdown to why I recommend it. 1) Performance: Because I also like to stream I try my best to keep up with the new games coming out and having a steady stream is important to me. So far running games such as PUBG and APEX (popular FPS currently) I haven't notice a drop below 60 fps during game play. A match from start to finish has been a smooth ride. on the other side of the spectrum I heavily mod Skyrim and the Witcher 3. Very high graphic games (post Modding with Skyrim) and I have yet to run into any clipping or other issues with rendering objects issues you would see in this game with my much older card. I currently have 4 monitors connected to the card. while one plays the game, another manages the stream, one has the stream open for me to notice any performance issues, and the fourth lets me manage any other media platform i'm also using. to date I have not notice an issue with all this running at once, and the fans on the card are very quite IMO. 2) Upgrade: I have been rocking a GTX 980 for about 4-5 years and I am able to tell the deference easily with the new upgrade. As I just noted, everything is running smoother than before even with some heavily modded games. HOWEVER because I was back in the GTX 900 series I fell that anyone else at this level or lower should make the Jump to the RTX 2080. Simply because I don't try to keep up with the newest and coolest thing that just came out. when I make the purchase for a component such as this i try to keep it for as long as i possibly can. if you are currently in the GTX 1000 series spending the money honestly right now doesn't seem to be justified just yet. I say this because this time around we are not seeing crazy outstanding performance increase from the 1080's to the 2080's. Unless you have the cash burning a hole in your pocket, you may want to wait till something new is released or Ray Tracing becomes more of a thing (i'm betting on it but i could be wrong). 3) Investing: This plays a little bit off the last part, Ray Tracing. I honestly believe this is going to be brought into play sooner than others may expect (although I could be wrong). until recently Nvidia only had what they developed and to showcased last year what the possibility of what Ray tracing could do. however just recently using Unreal engine a stunning short video with ray tracing inside of it came out. diving deeper into it i found they added the support for Dx12 ray tracing, and will be releasing this for development soon. With them moving forward with it i felt it was the right investment for me to get a 2080 rather than a cheaper 1080. In conclusion, This is a great card. the price may be high but I plan to keep my card for the next 4-5 years at the least. if you are currently rocking a GTX 1000 series, honestly hold off till the end of the year or maybe the first quarter of 2020, because your card should be fine until something better with ray tracing actually comes out. (just because its released soon doesn't mean it we'll have a new game overnight) and hopefully further in the year the price will drop for the 2080's.

    Great performance at a price

    Ugh, how to lead into this. Well, its fast. There is that. The GPU out of the box performs very well, and as an upgrade to a GTX 1080, its great. I play at 3440x1440 and in VR, and honestly this card feel just right for this resolution. Problem is, I have had a 1080ti before. This feels just like a 1080ti. The other problem with that, is the 1080ti is cheaper at the moment. If you're a value minded consumer, this isn't the GPU for you yet. I say yet because there is untapped potential in these cards. First, there is the DLSS and RTX capabilities that we are simply waiting to be released. I don't expect anyone to buy on hopes, so I wouldn't recommend this card simply based on that. Nvidia has given us no reason to believe these will be competent cards in that regard, so don't believe they are. Secondly, drivers. If this was pascal (10 series) I wouldn't recommend waiting on drivers to improve performance, but they aren't. This isn't simply a rehash of Nvidias gaming arch of old, this is a pretty fresh arch. I could dive into the techincals of it, but I'll save that for elsewhere. But know that there are new cores in here running alongside the old cores that do things the other archs couldn't. It takes time to optimize these, and thats what happening. How much, I don't know. That said, I don't recommend buying on hope. Now, if 1080ti performance is enough for you for a few dollars extra with the hope of better performance later and all the eye candy that comes with ray tracing, or the increased performance with DLSS (at a minor visual hit), then this is the card for you (unless you have 2080ti money). If not, don't buy it. Find yourself a 1080ti thats priced decently, and go with that. It has more raw performance, more memory, and steady drivers.

    Great Card For 1440p

    For what it is worth, I have a Liquid Cooled Intel 8700, 16GB of RAM, MSI z370 Gaming Plus MoBo, and an EVGA 850w GQ PSU. I have never in my life experienced something this powerful in a computer. Being happy with this card is an understatement. I fun Battlefield V with this setup on mostly High/ Ultra with Medium Raytracing and run an easy 60 fps. On 1440p. 4k works on High but not with DXR. CSGO, I'm around 400+ fps on my settings which are a mix of high/medium on 1080p. Idle temps are roughly around 50-60 and under load, I don't see it go over 71 c. If you've been debating on upgrading between this and a 1080ti, I truthfully do not regret going with a 2080 over a 1080ti. The DXR stuff really is awesome and I'm excited to see other games integrate it later in 2019. Very, VERY happy with my purchase. Make sure you pair it with a good monitor!

    This card is great. However, in all honesty it performs exactly like a gtx 1080ti, with the wonderful addition of the rtx. If you’re on the fence about getting this and you have a 1080ti please don’t upgrade, you won’t notice a difference in fps, it’ll be there, but so minuscule that you’ll hate yourself for upgrading. It’s really more of a sidegrade with added benefit of rtx. Now if you’re moving to a 2080ti, then you will absolutely feel the difference. Back to this specific gpu, it’s one of the better 2080s by a long shot. If you’re worried about sagging definitely pick up a support bracket bc it sags just a bit. In short, great card, very nice thermals and very quiet. And as always, can’t beat that evga service.

    Even if Raytracing isn’t perfect it’s still a good step forward in tech that will improve games in the future. I haven’t tried this feature out yet but this card is a BEAST at everything else. I haven’t OC’ed it or anything and every game I play is over 150 FPS except gtav. It’s cool, quiet, looks good (I still would rather have the white gigabyte card) and the leds do cool stuff too. No problems after a month. It is expensive but all new release stuff is. A 1080ti was 1200 a few months ago lol.

    Card runs fast. The issues I have are 1) fans are noisy at times, almost like their bearings aren't completely round, and it seems like maybe it is hitting the plastic bezel around them. Also, I run dual monitors, and since upgrading this card, I have had constant issues with the second monitor going to sleep, and then not being able to wake it. To get it to come back awake, I actually have to unplug the display port out of the back and then plug it back in. That resolves it 90% of the time.

    I am glad I bought this card. it is much better then my old card and from all the RTX cards I think this one was perfect, games run much smoother and frame rate is butter smooth. I have this paired with a 2700X and 32GBs of ram and I cold not be happier.. I got the card on sale so the price was good as well. The only down side to this card might be if you system cannot support the 3 slots and if it can yo need to make sure you have good air.. Temps run at about 62c while gaming

    My review factors in the price and performance compared to previous generations. Overall I think it's a great video card, performance is better than previous generation but the price has gone up too. So as long as you are aware of this, it's generally a good purchase. I like how the heatsink is bigger, but that means this video card uses 3 slots. This video card is noticeably cooler, max temps was around 62C and stays fairly quiet.

    I was a bit skeptical on buying it because it was expensive but I bought it because I was ready to take a leap and try a top of the line card and man is it nice. I have it paired with an i7 9700k cpu and they really do make gaming so much better. Glad I purchased but sad it dropped in price less than a week after purchasing.

    Overkill for 1080

    For me this was a major upgrade. I wanted something to work with either 1080 or 2550x1440 for my MMRPG settings. I have maxed out all settings for WOW and almost all settings for The Witcher. Even in crowded areas or during raids I almost never drop below 70-80 fps. The fan stays cool and though the new 16G Radeon just came out I think this still out performs it. You won't be sorry to purchase this as you wont have to upgrade for the next 5 years easy.

    I would recommend purchasing the “Black” edition and using EVGA’s step-up program (within 90 days) to pay the difference to purchase the 2080ti Black edition. I’m easily hitting 144 frames at 1440p (med/high settings) on Apex Legends. It scored 11k in Time Spy. Pro tip: Use MSI Afterburner to overlock it as the EVGA software is buggy. I hit +800 memory and + 120MHz stable.

    A very solid card....for high framerate at 1440p!

    Without being overly lengthy here, this card does a really good job at what it's supposed to. This is a good mid-borderline high performing card performing card at 4k but I feel that it's better suited for high fps at 1440p. While this can run in 4k, hitting 60 fps regularly is a bit of an issue. (look for the 2080ti if that's what you're in need of) Overall this a good card.

    2080 Ti too expensive, so I went with 2080

    I'm totally blown by the power of this GPU. I would definitely recommend this to a friend. 2080 Ti is $1200. With $350 more to go I would've had one. But overall I'm going to save that money whereas the 2080 is perfect for me. I really love my GPU. I had an Radeon RX 580 4 gig in my PC. And this card is so quiet and cool compared to the RX 580.

    Very good upgrade from 1070 but it definitely comes with a high price tag. I bought this car mainly to play PUBG with my 2k monitor. I get around 90 to 130 FPS which I am satisfied with. Only thing to complain is that led light did not work and I had to call EVGA and I had to download and install a program to get it working. I thought that LED lighting can get better.

    Bought this to replace an AMD R290. I was going to get the 1070 for cheaper but the 2080 is going to be the new standard for some time to come. Worth the extra couple of $$. Running Witcher3, Skyrim, Shadow of the Tomb Raider and ESO at max setting with no tearing or other problems. A must buy.

    Extra cooling for peace of mind

    I'd read about the overheating problems with some of the 2080 cards and read that this Ultra card had extra cooling. Well it's certainly a lot larger in the cooling dept than other options out there and I haven't had a single problem with it. The performance is very good on benchmarks too.

    This is a beast card. Huge and cool. No problems after a month now running 1440p 144htz monitor. I wanted a 1080ti but it’s hard to find and this is faster. 18 months no interest was great, didn’t have to plop all the cash at once which is why I got it at Best Buy.

    EVGA has always been my go to when it comes to video cards so when I built my new rig I had to shed out the cash for this card it has been worth every cent . It pushes everything I need it to game wise and runs 3 monitors 1x4k and 2x1080

    Too fat for my liking. Reference board with 6 pin and 8 pin connector. MSI comes with dual 8 pin connectors. Factory overclocked. Have been an EVGA supporter for many years and think they have quality cards fwiw. Warranty is second to none.

    This was my first ever build. I wanted a graphics card that would last a while performance wise. I went with this 2080 and I have not been let down one bit! Overclocked like a dream. Destroys all games at 1440p. I couldn’t ask for more!
