The RTX 2080 Ti, on the other
hand, is like a Porsche 911.
It's very fast, handles well,
expensive but not ostentatious
Only compared to a car which costs millions could it be considered reasonable and not ostentatious.
Guess I'll be sticking to my "poor mans" 970 GTX :p
I feel like he answered that question directly, by comparing it to an ostentatious computer. ;)
“And if you think I'm going overboard with the Porsche analogy, you can buy a DGX-1 8x V100 for $120,000 or a Lambda Blade 8x 2080 Ti for $28,000 and have enough left over for a real Porsche 911. Your pick.“
Kinda depends on which Lamborghini; an Urus probably does a better job at paying for normal in a grocery store parking lot (and is better for actually carrying groceries) than a 911.
