    That's nVidia power and influence here...

    I know it's not the same thing but I'll love to see some studios saying "eh, we'll add fp16 support in our games" when Vega cames out...

    Just not power and influence ... all it takes is an in-house demo to see that the tech works and is easy to implement. The performance gained from having DLSS likely out weights any reason not to implement it.

    Not very many developers did that last time, Nvidia was offering increased FP16 throughput. So they went ahead and did it themselves. :D

    The graphics score of this card is way too low for Firestrike. 27k is only 2k higher than the fastest submitted score for a GTX 1080 (non-Ti) on air/water with an 8700k. Either this isn't a 2080, or it's not regular Firestrike. Too bad the submission contains no content now so we can't know for sure which is the case.

    It's interesting to note that some of the drops from HDR to SDR on Pascal cards can reach up to 12% in some titles. And these are official numbers from NVIDIA, why is HDR slower than SDR in the first place? Also HDR YUV422 drops more than HDR RGB444.

    I noticed that too. Probably some bugs still to be worked out in the drivers.

    NVIDIA says Turing has a native hardware HDR tonemapping as opposed to the software tonemapping in Pascal. This is presumably what's causing the performance drops in HDR.

    4k performance even better than expected.

    The price sucks but if that performance is upheld in independent reviews, kinda wished I had preordered the 2080Ti. That way I can game at 4k while everyone else bickers about the price/value.

    Well that's completely unexpected. No one thought they'd bother with RT cores below 2070 given the apparent performance of 2080ti in demo'd games. They're very much going all in on Turing.

    TU106 is 2070.

    Yeah but what’s the point? It has the same bus width as TU104 and 75% of the SMs. Are yields so wacky on 12nm that it made sense to spin a separate chip instead of salvaging TU104 dies? Maybe yields are pretty good and they didn’t want to have to sell an expensive-to-manufacture TU104 chip with 1/4 of the units disabled.

    I could understand if RTX 2060 used a salvaged TU106 but if there’s really a TU116 the whole setup seems strange.
