I'll bookmark these videos for when I want to take my 2080ti apart. :rolleyes:

You might be surprised how many people do, if not simply for curiosity about exactly what they just paid more than $1000 for, then for reasons including cleaning: (closed systems like this can gather lots of clogging internal dust), putting in better thermal grease to aid in overclocking, or to add aftermarket parts like water cooling. This also includes changing out a broken part like a malfunctioning fan, or even changing a bad capacitor, which might rescue an otherwise hopelessly dead card somewhere down the road.

Unfamiliarity does not necessarily mean uselessness......

This video made me very happy I chose a partner card rather than the Nvidia brand, since I don't trust what I see of its cooling setup, and it looks very very hard to service due to being held together with at least 80 (seriously) screws.

Hiflyer, you are getting a 2080ti, aren´t you? I´m really interested in reading your experience with that card with VR in P3D and XP11 mainly. I´m getting one too, but since I have to wait for an i9 9900k (need to change my whole PC) I´m afraid I´d have to wait for another month or two.

 

cheers

Check out the AIB partners GPU teardown much better less hassle.

Yes, I've preordered from NewEgg.

My sense is that I'll see improvements in Aerofly FS2 and probably X-plane, but P3D is CPU-bound enough that I'm only expecting a negligible change, there.

I get exactly the same FPS in XP11 and P3d4 for equivalent settings so I don't know where you are getting your information from.

I have no idea what an "equivalent setting" between X-Plane and 3PD would look like. To me, that's like saying equivalent settings between Checkers and chess.

So what? Even if it would be possible to have equivalent settings it can still be that you reach 30FPS in P3D due to a CPU-Limit and 30FPS in X-Plane due to a GPU-Limit, as the engines of those two sims simply do not work the same... And in such a scenario, it is possible that the novel 2080Ti will provide you some 20-30% extra FPS in X-Plane and not a single one in Prepar3d. Still questionable though if 1000$ are worth a 20-30% increase...

Nividia will be forced to drop the prices on new the gpu as some enthusiasts will not pay $1200 80ti card or $800 for 80 series card. The 1080ti is $100-$150 cheaper and trade blows with 2080 people care most about raw performance.
