Just ordered my second 2080TI

Recommended Posts

I have been so impressed with the single 2080TI that I have(in comparison to the SLI 1080 setup I had before) that I just ordered my second one. Main reason? I game in 4k and the way the 2080TI seems to handle heavy clouds is VERY impressive to me. I was also able to turn on HDR for the first time and while my FPS is not extremely high, the game seems to run at a more consistent FPS with more detail and better lighting. I have a 7820X OC'd to 4.7 on water. 32 Gigs of ram and a 960 M2 drive where all the P3d stuff lives.  I find myself flying more, and spending less time tweaking the P3D config. 

 

  I looked at Rob's comparison again before ordering the second card and I feel as though a second one is justified when used at my resolution. The performance gain IS worth it! If I spent all of my time in Aerofly 2, World of Warships or the latest FPS shooter then a second card would NOT be needed but this is P3d and NVLINK scaling in this game seems to do fairly well at higher resolutions. I will report back when the second card arrives.

To each their own, but you could've save a significant amount of money had you just upgraded to a current processor and OC'd higher.

How many extra FPS are you looking at with the extra card?

I don't agree. Less PCI lanes, maybe a 400MHZ difference. The PCI lanes matter to me, I run a 10GB home network and I have a ASUS 10GB card in one of the slots. Not a lot of benefit at the moment to going with the latest processor.  I think I would rather have the second card and wait for another generation of processor to come out that offers a more significant upgrade:

There is a great thread by Rob above that explains the benefit of NVLINK at HIGH resolutions. Make sure to scroll down to view single RTX2080TI vs 2.
