Bethesda? I'll just say lol.
As CDpr is already releasing a game for the current GPU generation, I really see no reason to go for 2080ti unless you've jumped on the silly 4K hypewagon, bought 4K blurry 5+ms response videowall instead of 144Hz capable monitor and discovered that everything is either upscaled or a slideshow.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider’s NVIDIA RTX Gamescom Demo Isn’t Great, But Developers Aren’t Worried
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080Ti unable to run Shadow of the Tomb Raider with 60fps at 1080p with RTX On
PCGamesHardware have shared an off-camera video, showing the game running with real-time ray tracing on an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080Ti. Thankfully, a FRAPS overlay was present and we can see that this new GPU can run the game with 30-70fps.
