Default My experience with RTX 2080 on DCS

So first of all, please apologize my english is not my native language.

Anyway I have an RTX 2080 since a couple of months and I want to share my experience.

With RTX 2080 and an I7 7700k runing at 4.7 with DDR4 16G 2800 and playing at 1080p I need to put shadows at plain and put a bit low the visual distance to compensate the use of VRAM.

So in my experience if you want to upgrade from a 1080 go for a TI card like a 2080ti or even the 1080ti. The RTX 2080 does not have all the VRAM that the game needs to run it well.

It's just a shame nVidia didn't up the VRAM on the 20s, but skyrocketed their price tags at the same time...

Yeah I'm routinely maxing the VRAM on the 2080ti.
New hotness: I7 9700k 4.8ghz, 32gb ddr4, 2080ti, TM Warthog. TrackIR, Rift CV1
Old-N-busted: i7 4720HQ ~3.5GHZ, +32GB DDR3 + Nvidia GTX980m (4GB VRAM) TM Warthog. TrackIR, Rift CV1 (yes really).

Looks like DCS is using almost all the VRAM it can. My 2080Ti is running at 93% VRAM with 11Gb available.

8086K delid @5.1Ghz under EKWB Water, 2080Ti FE, 32Gb DDR4, 970Pro NvME.

How do you think the Radeon VII with 16GB VRAM would perform? At $697, it seems like a good value.
