re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts
The 2080 just came out 4 months ago, so how exactly is an equivalent power card 2-3 year old performance?

Really talking about the 1080ti etc. Apparently from what I saw the new card is just above a 2080. So a 1080Ti.

That's perfect. If I was on Nvidia I'd get a 1080ti and not a 2080 anyways.

My point

Brand loyality.

Welcome to performance we had for years.

I'm about to be unloyal to Pittsburgh. They are killing me.

You can't get new 1080ti's anymore they quit producing them. So it's 2080 or new Vega.

I was in a microcenter a few hours ago and they had plenty, but once they're gone that's it I'm sure.

It's weird how low my excitement level was in that store this time. Almost 2 years since I've upgraded anything on my pc.

It's just not fun anymore. Think the whole hobby side is burnt out with upgrading with little performance increase or real benefit.

Because that has nothing to do with right now lmao. 2080 or Vega 2 or 1080ti are the same performance. 2080 is most expensive and 1080ti is the same MSRP as Vega 2.

Jesus it does because your upgrade is not really an upgrade. Your brand loyality holds back your experience for a subpar experience at roughly the get same price.

It's not hard to figure out.

Lol

You do get I'm making fun of your "upgrade"? No? Stop being brand loyal. It makes no sense. Esp for you. You started this during AMD's shtt days and kissed the good days of AND/ATI.

It just makes no sense.

Of course it is, about 30% more performance than what I have now.

I think the PC market has become less of a niche is a decent chunk of the pricing scheme, but also we've exhausting the processing power they can put into these tiny dies

I didn't know that Cherry MX had an exclusive deal with Corsair for their newest "silent" keys, it apparently ended and now others offer them.

Going to grab the new Ducky Shine 7 with Cherry MX silent reds.

Watched a youtube of the sound comparison and definitely a lot quieter.

Design is getting worse also, etc.

You can see it on other forums. No one is really excited anymore. Guess that is why we are all more interested in enterprise tech now.

No clue I just ordered it, on preorder until the 24th.

I've always had reds. Whenever I first researched I always saw reds as the most popular for gaming and now that I'm so used to them there's no reason to switch.

Reds, greens and browns. Think I maybe used blues.

Reds are loud with not enough resistance. I like just a little resistance to activate. Browns are kind if that sweet spot for me.
