I wont be purchasing one - try to pick up a used 1080ti instead

That's exactly what I did, coming from a GTX980 Ti.
For a short period, the Gigabyte Aorus was on sale (200 euro less), so I'm a happy camper now.
1080 Ti is more or less same performance as 2080 and also has more memory

You must be CPU bound... What % is the 2080 running at?

Yes he must be CPU bound for this specific test..  But that completely depends on which specific sliders are involved.  P3D is neither CPU nor GPU bound all the time though you always read 'P3D is CPU bound!".   If you're running GPU related sliders hard right then the sim can become GPU bound,.  The fair test of 1080 Ti ver 2080 would be to first intentionally set up a GPU bound scenario and then swap in the new GPU to compare, the rest is all idle prattle.   Worse still, is looking for a blanket 'FPS increase' w/ 2080 which assumes the sim is always mostly  GPU bound.  I understand there is overlap/interplay as well between GPU/CPU, but in general I believe my comments above are essentially correct.

Thta's what I'm saying yes. He's CPU bound for that test, which would explain the 0% improvement.

So many people talk here about 'FPS increases' with this GPU, and yet that comment itself is almost meaningless w/o context, so I thought I bring it up for newer folks that still don't understand what's happening.
