TurtleTrax, I'm running a 6850k B-E system too, 32 GB ram, 1080ti, 950m.2.


It really runs close to our 2 8700k systems, one has a TitanXP the other 2 1080ti/sli, but in most games we play (cockpit flight sims, and the usual suspects of other AAA titles), the 6850k is only a few % behind the 8700k systems (all 3 have mild-medium overclocks on CPUs, GPUs stock). While I agree on updating, I'm moving the 6850k to a 9900k first thing on the upgrade schedule this fall, the 6850k still performs pretty well compared to the current most popular gaming chip/8700k.



We have 2 27" 165hz Gsync Asus, 1 34" Asus (looking for one more if anyone ever has or sees a used one up for sale, Acer or Asus 34" Gsync), and 1 27" PG27UQ 144hz 4k unit. That and 3 Rifts and 3 Odysseys. In the vast majority of games the difference between the 8700ks and 6850s is very negligible so far as FPS on this LCDs and in particular with VR.


I agree 100% regarding AMD, I've wanted to build an all AMD system for a while now, and if they can come out with something fantastic, and worth it, I'll do so, so I'm in that boat too waiting.

I am stuck on the fence as what to do. I have a Rampage edition 10 with ek Monoblock that is a really sweet setup, and I have been seeing 6950X chips on ebay and the like for around $900. I could drop on in my board and be good for another 3-4 years, or upgrade board and chip. I have a 32GB B-die set of ram that will last me a long while, but have no idea what to do beyond that. Might wait and see if the 6950X continues to drop.

Right now as far as my monitor goes, I am still using my Acer Predator x34, and I still love it. Might use my Credit Card points for a 55" LG OLED55C8 and throw it in my office too. If I do that, I might be up for a second reference 1080ti and throw it under a waterblock too. All speculation as it stands, but I don't see the Turing platform being amazing enough after reviews drop to change my mind.

I also have a 1700x system with 2x 1080s on waterblocks. It is a pretty sharp rig too. My son uses it on and 65" HDR Sony X900E. Works quite well, but would like AMD to have a solid release and have a AMD centric rig :)

Pascal and Turing will be sold side by side for holidays, without stepping on each other toes.

Looks like the 2080 non Ti is just as fast as the 1080 to +/- 10% like last time...

Next year probably when the sales will be low and everyone is going to aim for a 1080ti on black friday!
