Hey all! so before I get started I’m looking at this from purely a vfx artist, and game artist/developer point of view.
I currently have a TR 1950x and a 980ti (I know, a dinosaur at this point).
I want to get a TR 2990wx and a Titan RTX, but given that we’re close to 2020, I have a feeling the moment I upgrade AMD will release the next gen of TR, and Nvidia with their next gen RTX cards. I’m just curious if the new versions will be worth the wait.
I know that the yearly release trends only seem to have a small margin of performance increase, so it might be better if I just go with the 2990wx, and the Titan RTX…but who knows, maybe there might be a good reason to wait? Something I don’t know about/missing?
Side note, I’m comparing the Titan RTX with the RTX 2080TI and while the performance difference is minuscule (and much more inexpensive), I’m choosing the Titan RTX because the extra VRam, for Octane and Redshift rendering software (the more VRam the better for them). Although I’m wondering if the extra cost will be worth it or not.
