wait for rtx 3000s or buy a 2080 ti now

What you think I should do, Either one should be good but later this year is the release of the 3000s series and could be really good

the best would be to buy the 2080ti later on when the 3000s hit the shelves

wait till the 3000 series are on the shelf. But even then you might not find a good 2080ti deal

I would wait because they may have new functions

Just heard on LTT that some 3090s might cost 1400$ which is just insane. I personally believe that 1080ti is still a beast that should take care of most things for you. Or maybe I just live on a different budget than you :D good luck!

In that price range I would wait, people with less of a budget might as well buy now as it will take longer tofr the lower end cards to come out.

Honestly, it's your money. If you want to be a "beta tester" for a card on launch day, by all means. Want to reap the deals on the previous gen? Go ahead.

Personally, I'm of the mindset that as long as you have a decent card that serves your uses, there's not enough ROI to justify an upgrade. What do you mainly do? Play GPU-heavy games? Do 3D rendering? Stream to a video platform? Your use case is going to heavily determine if it's worth it at all. If all you do is emulate classic console games or play indie titles, hard pass.

If you've got a decent card already, put the money into something else. Like a faster monitor, or an uninterruptible power supply.

Given what the just announced in terms of raw power and cost of the new cards, there's absolutely no reason to purchase a 2080 now.

A cheap 2080 for gaming or 3000 series for compute or 4k gaming
