I guess I was. It isn't more powerful than the last gen top GPU though. It is not a bad deal for 500$, considering it's equivalent to 1080 which is similarly priced, but you get a few more benefits here if they're utilized correctly in the near future.
Nvidia needs to enable DLSS (basically fancy AI supersampling) in the driver like they did with FXAA and the 20 series will fly off the shelves. I have a feeling they're holding onto that for now, but it will probably happen in the future. There's no reason why DLSS can't be enabled on driver-level, like DSR is.
