    That's very cool to hear that you got a RTX 2080Ti.

    I wonder how well these cards perform in AI and machine learning applications. With the addition of all those extra RTX and Tensor cores I am hoping to see Titan V level performance.

    I can still compile a functioning computer for half price or so. Good one including screen with 1200$

    Unfortunately the only "nice to build" things in this department are provided as docker images. Building these frameworks manually is an exercise in patience. EasyBuild helps with some but not yet all of them.

    So if you can do some inference benchmarks that would be great. Tesla T4 is supposedly very good at it at 75W only and if this 2080ti shows same numbers, gamers will whine again about availability
    This vastly underestimates the size of the 100 billion dollar gaming market. Who knows whether things like RTX cores are even useful for AI at all? We could likely see a split with server/workstation cards dropping RTX to maximize tensor processing performance while PC cards accrue more and more gaming-specialized features.

    Very interested in the rendering benchmarks (blender, octanebench)

    Michael Does this mean you are canceling your 2080 pre-order?

    Have any particular inference benchmarks in mind? (That are nice to build and script well.) I have had a few test profiles but they have tended to be messy with a load of dependencies, etc, so continuously looking for new tests in that area.

    Apparently they are designed similiarly to something Apple would do. In short: They are not made to be taken apart.
