Very likely. It's also equally likely that many AIB's will have offering that come in lower than $350. That happened with 2070/2080/2080ti, so it seems reasonable that it will happen with the 2060/2050(?).
Wrong, and every benchmark showing performance numbers bare that out as fact. The 2080 cleanly beats out the 1080 and beats out 1080ti if it doesn't match it. Also RTX offers advancements Pascal can not. The 2080/2080ti and RTX Titan are the best on the market. NVidia knows this and demands a premium price for it. If you don't want to pay that price, ok, don't buy one. Settle for less.
Key word there..
Try again, with those facts of yours. The cards are equal and the 2080 never cleanly beats a 1080ti. So the fact remains, its yesterdays' performance at full price, or more than full price, because 1080ti's were cheaper at multiple points in the recent past. The only situations it 'wins' are those with 20 FPS minimums or sub 30 FPS averages @ 4K.
Said it before, your comparison is pitting an FE 1080ti versus AIB 2080's. Nvidia played that very well. It would be good to realize it. Note how the 2080 OC gains literally zero FPS.
Its alright though, cognitive dissonance is a bitch, isn't it.
