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.


30fps is what they were claiming tho wasnt it. Not 60 or 100.

Pre-ordered a 3080 on launch day (Sept 17th), paid £750 upfront for the Gigabyte Eagle OC from Scan, got called a mug for paying for something I wasn't going to see, card got delivered three months to the day on 17th of December. Given the way things have gone with stock, scalping and prices, absolutely no regrets battering the pre-order queue and paying up. Probably the best upgrade since the move from HDD to SSD all those years ago.

I got a 3070 for 690 ish a few months ago. Was direct from a reseller not a scalper. I love the card also. Couldnt justify the 1k plus for a 3080 from scalpers.

Even the good gaming laptops like the Lenovo Legion 5 Pro are sold out and scalped now.

Fuck it all.

Newegg.com finally has cards in stock, but a 1660 GTX is the same price I paid for my 2070 RTX Super last year. The RTX 3080 cards in stock are $2700 (WTF!) and shipping from resellers in China and Taiwan, rather than newegg themselves.

Overclockers have some stock of cards at the moment but all at inflated prices. £699 for a 3060 and such. Fuck that.

I'm still running a 1070, but then I've only got a 24inch monitor so it'll still run everything at its max resolution without any issue.
My upgrade coincided with a monitor upgrade (34" UWQHD) so the 1070 didn't cut it. Playing in UWQHD with max settings is an absolute delight on a 144Hz G-Sync display.

Metro Exodus also got a major overhaul last month with the "enhanced edition" which brought in much improved ray-tracing along with DLSS 2.1. It's a fucking treat for the eyes.
