The 2080 Ti is a much bigger GPU with 4352 Cuda Cores (the things that do all the rendering work) vs 2944 Cuda Cores the standard 2080. It also has more AI and Ray Tracing hardware as well as more GDDR6 memory that is clocked faster.

The 1080 Ti had only 3584 Cuda Cores, no AI or Ray Tracing hardware and the same amount of memory but it was the older slower GDDR5X.

So I've decided I'm going to buy a 1080 Ti and sell my 1080. With 1080 Tis going for as little as $1000 from the big PC parts retailers in Australia there is no way in hell the 2080 Ti is worth $900 extra.

Ordered an RX580 which arrived at the Post Office on Friday, yet still had the been put in my Parcel Locker.
I did a little research on it, and for the price (and included goodies) it seemed like a nice upgrade from my GTX960 - more than enough to game comfortably at 2560x1080 and be a little more compatible with OS X

I'm not sure if this a permanent price cut or temporary but the Samsung 860 Evo 1tb 2.5" version can now be had for $220 at Umart and there are similarly low prices from a bunch of other major PC retailers in Australia.

So if you are wanting a storage upgrade for cheap this looks like it might be a great deal.
