If there's something I've always had a passion within a passion for when it comes to technology, it's pushing graphics cards to their limits. I want to see not just what new cards can do for me today and tomorrow, but what about the future of gaming? 4K 120Hz was once thought of to be a fantasy land: something unachievable for many years, and then that future came to us much quicker than anticipated with NVIDIA's reveal of the Turing GPU architecture.
NVIDIA's introduction of the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti was a massive milestone. It opened the door to beyond 4K 60FPS gaming, a milestone even next-gen consoles won't get close to with beefed-up internals provided by AMD in the form of Navi inside of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett consoles.
The next-gen consoles will hopefully hit 4K 60FPS solid but I'm sure it won't be at Ultra settings, with anti-aliasing, 60FPS minimum, an option for 120Hz given NVIDIA's new Big Format Gaming Display (BFGD) TVs will offer 4K 120Hz gaming at a huge 65-inch.
That's PC-only territory, and will be for the forseeable future, hell consoles will have to go discrete GPU to get close and that's just to the last-gen of graphics let alone the future with NVIDIA throwing the benchmark bar into the clouds and will now see gamers, consumers, and game developers deciding where the chips fall and how high the bar was raised.
PC gaming is starting to get really expensive, so there needs to be something else that warrants spending upwards of $1199 on a new graphics card.
This is where 4K 120FPS gaming comes into play with NVIDIA's new 27-inch 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync monitors come into play from partnerships with ASUS and Acer, as well as the upcoming BFGDs offering 65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync. NVIDIA needs to absolutely own the upper echelon of PC gaming while looking into the future with multi-monitor 4K 144Hz setups, 8K 60Hz monitors and then multiple 8K60 panels.
This is all worlds above anything AMD has on the market with Radeon and its flagship Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics card, something that competes with the GeForce GTX 1080. Remember there's the GTX 1080 11Gbps, GTX 1080 Ti, TITAN Xp, RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti all above AMD's bleeding edge.
But what about 8K? :)
