I'm not sure you can have a war with yourselfWell the cost of 2080ti performance has just halved
Many. But the 20xx was priced off the back of bitcoin miners. And poor chip success rates. Also their sales didn't look good so it all pointed to a drop this time. But its surprising the amount. And many pissed 2080 purchasers i am sure. The performance gain from my 1080 never warranted a buy of the 20xx Gen.I'm not sure you can have a war with yourself
Interesting marketing though, there has got to be a ton of unhappy exiting 2070s 2080 folks out there. I got my 2070 back in March and I'm feeling a little disappointed but the RTX30x wasnt a thing then.
Luckily I upgraded from a GTX970 Defo a performance change there.Many. But the 20xx was priced off the back of bitcoin miners. And poor chip success rates.

[they are much more power hungry to tho.Luckily I upgraded from a GTX970 Defo a performance change there.
Thing is with 10,000 cuda cores it might well make it viable for miners again. Not sure I can be arsed to figure out the cost benefit anymore but that has got to be a big step forward without the typical massive hike in cost.
Fair point, but still not going to break out the spreadsheet - My son loved it during the winter as his room was above the garage and I had 3-4 rigs running, bloody garage was 32 degs in the middle of winter, surprised I never had the rozzers knocking on the door asking if I was growing weed.[they are much more power hungry to tho.
The 20xx was priced off the back of Nvidia being able to do what they liked because AMD wasn't competitive.Many. But the 20xx was priced off the back of bitcoin miners. And poor chip success rates.

Well I'm certainly not happy but I had to buy a new PC last month because my old one had died. I knew the 3xxx series was out soon but I couldn't wait even a few weeks without my main office machine.Bet people that bought a 2080 Ti recently are pissed off though, even the 3070 shits on the 2080 Ti and it's less than half the price.
Exactly and I knew something like this would happen. Its also not like my 2080Ti has suddenly become a slow card. It can still pump out insane FPS on my 1440p 144Hz monitor at ultra settings. In a year or two if I think about upgrading to a 5k monitor then I could consider about upgrading to a 3080 or 3090 where those cards would actually make a noticeable difference.That is technology for you, especially graphics cards.
Ofcourse its always gonna be more expensive that a console you dont have the scale of a single build and components to decrease the prices.The 20xx was priced off the back of Nvidia being able to do what they liked because AMD wasn't competitive.
Going off all the back-of-an-envelope calculations, AMD have something either somewhere between the 3070 and the 3080 or slightly better than the 3080, with superior efficiency. It just depends how they price it. If Nvidia got wind of this, it might (partly at least) explain their aggressive pricing. I'm not sure about the console angle, whichever way you look at it PC gaming is always going to be more expensive.
None in anywhere yet and yeah the other manufacturers first fans are gonna be less asthetic cause they didnt have time. Second gen are supposed to be thinner and better looking.The Palit GeForce RTX 3080 GamingPro OC takes NVIDIA's brand-new Ampere-based GA102 GPU and powers a burly custom card, complete with massive coolerhothardware.com
If you can find any in stockTechPowerUp has a few different manufacturer 3080s:
The Palit GeForce RTX 3080 Gaming Pro OC is a close-to-reference Ampere graphics card even though it looks nothing like the Founders Edition. The triple-slot, triple-fan cooler on the Gaming Pro features fan stop and runs slightly cooler than the NVIDIA Founders Edition.www.techpowerup.comZotac's GeForce RTX 3080 Trinity comes with up to five years of warranty and a large triple-slot, triple-fan cooler. In our review, we saw excellent noise levels that are much better than the Founders Edition, and it runs cooler as well. A very solid card for $699.www.techpowerup.comThe ASUS GeForce RTX 3080 TUF Gaming OC comes with a small factory overclock and a huge cooler that achieves amazing temperatures that are much better than the NVIDIA Founders Edition. The TUF also features a dual BIOS with a "quiet" mode that makes this 4K monster card almost silent.www.techpowerup.comThe GeForce RTX 3080 Gaming X Trio is MSI's flagship RTX 3080. It comes with a large overclock out of the box, and the cooler is massive. This is the fastest RTX 3080 we've tested so far, and it's the quietest as well. Wow, and that with a classic triple-fan design that doesn't use any fancy...www.techpowerup.com
To me the big takeaway is get the cheapest version, the noise and performance differences are negligible.
And if you look at the reviews, they really shouldn't have marketed them as 8k capable. They can do 8k in a few games with DLSS 2.0 upscaling like crazy from 1440p but native they can barely get over 30fps. If you want a 4k card, the 3080 is more than capable (I'd still say wait for AMD to announce at the end of next month), if you want an 8k card, the 3090 ain't it.3080 is fine unless your 8k gaming tbh
