AvolateThey said in the reveal that the 3080 is for 4k and the 3070 is for 1440p. It even says that on the website.
FattysGoneWildWhat do you guys think? I almost think the 3080 is overkill for 1440p and more for 4k? I don't know if I should stay @1440p with my current G-Sync monitor or go 4K?!?!
solidus18333440x1440 on an EVGA 1080FTW is a bit of a struggle to keep 60fps in most AAA games these days without turning many things way down. Dont even get me started about Horizon Zero Dawn. I can hardly maintain 40fps in that one before crashing every 10 minutes. Both Assasins Creed Origins and Odyssey, I had to turn many settings off max and many to medium to just stay above 60fps. I feel like if I had a 1080ti I wouldn't be suffering as bad.
MatthewAMELOP- I see your monitor in your Sig. I'm a 1440 gamer too...running a 1080Ti FTW with a ASUS PG279Q. I'm grabbing a new 3000 to future-proof my setup. I know I want 4k, I'm just waiting on the monitor that checks all the boxes I am looking for.
FattysGoneWildInstead of making a whole new thread. A bit off topic. Do you think a FTW Ultra will fit okay in my case? Yes the gpu bracket is removable that helps hold my current 1080 Ti.
HoggleI would consider moving from 1440p to 4k but I am not sure it's something to do this fall. The 3080 is posting amazing numbers and at a much lower price point. It used to be for the last two years manufactures could count on someone looking for 4k gaming monitor to have of just dropped $1000 on a 2080Ti. Now that has dropped to $699 and that changes the market for gaming monitors big time. I would be waiting for CES 2021 or online versions given the pandemic to decide if it's right to go 4k now or wait for monitors shown to come out. I think what we saw from these numbers is 1440p just became the new 1080p for gaming and 4k being what gamers looking for a new monitor will probably be looking to buy. Now we just need to see the budget 4k gaming monitors to flood the market with the high end monitors really having to stand out in a way they didn't before.
