So long story short.
Old build was a 8700k @ 5.0 1080Ti great for gaming sold it as a whole for a VFIO 2950X build
My new build has a WX3100 (Host) Vega 56 (Mac Guest), and at the moment a Radeon VII (Windows VM)
My thought process with getting the Radeon VII is that I’m really only holding onto Windows gaming for Battleye and a small amount of various other titles, and when the time (maybe) comes I can easily game with this on Linux.
Another selling point for me was how lateral of a upgrade was coming from a 1080Ti. On top of all this I wanted to seriously try and get into content creation once my schedule freed up a bit.
I had the 1080Ti for what felt like forever and I’m pretty disappointed buying another pre-owned 1080Ti seems like a smart choice.
So after prefacing with all this my return grace period is up Monday at Microcenter, and with the inconveniences I face with the reset bug i’m inclined to turn this in for something else. I game at [email protected] and the game I play most is PUBG (sadly).
So achieving ~144 in game is always my goal. Before the reviews came out for the 2080Super I was pretty set on it, but still seems somewhat disappointing. Also how bad I loose in VRAM from these transitions. 11GB>16GB>8GB. Gaming wise I know this doesn’t mean much, but when you’re inclined to spend this much on a GPU it would be nice to have.
So L1 do you have any suggestions for me ? I suppose if I really want to see a performance delta over my OG 1080Ti I can get a 2080Ti, but that will definitely require a cash return and a little bit of saving. If I do go that route I don’t think i’ll be able to help to feel a little burned from Nvidia.
