LOL, 1080P and under 30 FPS. Never change Crysis.

We need a new version of that, with Crisis on max settings towering over them both.

Crysis on Infinite GPU cycles?

Yeah, I'm sure that it will take all the processing power from a PS4/XBox1 for the subtle differences between the two.  Sure, Quake2 certainly looked different.  But I don't think raytracing Quake2 would slow down a PS4/XBox1.

No, of course that isn't Cyrsis.  But there was only one new game that had ray tracing available (did *anything* add raytracing other than somebody patch Quake2?).  Moral of the story: never rush and buy new features that require huge amounts of software to be written around them before using them.

I'll never understand paying thousands for a gaming console when my 299$ Switch has given me like 5,000+ hours of memorable entertainment.

To each his own though.

$299 to $499 on the new Xbox consoles is not in the thousands.

They look to be pretty strong.

I still will play on a PC.

Show me a console that can run an 8K game at 60fps with everything on.
-not going to happen.

That's what I'm talking about right there.

I learned that lesson back in the Atari 2600 days, Addons and new features may sound great in theory but it's always best to wait until you see the games that use them. I remember when the RX 580/GTX1060 generations of cards came out and people were arguing how the 580s were better due to their Directx 12 support. That was years ago and this year MS Flight Simulator comes out and it doesn't even use DX12!

If you wait until the games that use it come out you get two advantages. One, you see what it looks like in real games and you can judge whether it's actually important to you or not. Two, since time has passed the cards out at that time will have better performance for the same money.

Why would I need to run a game at 8K? I can barely notice the difference between 1080p and 4K on my TV, so an 8K TV seems like a waste for the foreseeable future.

Yep.  See also Everquest 2 for the olds that actually were around to try it.  That thing could eat 5 PC's alive at high settings, and every bit of it was not so much "technical limitations" as "how the software we used to try to produce these effects does so."  You need to wait past the "I wrote a 16 ton plate of quantum interlaced spaghetti code to do this!" for the "Oh... WTF?  No no no (writes an efficient version.)" code monkeys.

I feel really bad for anyone who shelled out for an RTX 2080 Ti.

Bring me to my knees with Rachel Riley. That's the sum total of my enemies, and if I'm wrong I'll eat my own words.

1080p is still the most popular resolution for gamers, even with systems that are capable of running much higher.
Visually, the differences are negligible. The advantage of 1080p is higher FPS, and keeping the temps down on the system.
I consider 60fps to be the bare minimum that I would want to run a game. Definitely not a number I would be bragging about achieving. And there are not many people that are going to invest in an 8k display.
My system is over built, but I also use it for video and photo editing. Still only run games at 1080p

Since there are no real world benchmarks on either of those, there is no way to say that with any certainty.

Don't go by manufacture benchmarks. Wait until they get into the hands of users and reviewers.

There are already 3080 cards in the hand of reviewers, the only restriction right now is that they can't release raw numbers (only "percent faster"), and can only talk about a subset of games. That said, the games they can talk about are reasonably common and aren't bad examples.

The RTX 3080 is looking to be a pretty impressive card, especially with a price drop from the previous generation.

If we see it.  "List price" for a 2080ti has always been $1000 (Founders edition might have been a few hundred more).
