thejinx.sheehanEveryone beating the same drum: "It should have been 40% Faster!"Like we haven't seen this from EVERY Titan-ish card since....ever. Still trying to use that FPS per Dollar math on the Mondo cards. They never learn.Same people who keep saying "OMG will there be a Ti?!?"Of course there will be. And as usual, they will be just a smidge behind these. Time = money, and you can spend money to have the beast now, or the just slightly less beastly much, much later. Pattern recognition is one of the defining traits of Homo Sapiens. Crazy how many humans lack it.
ZalavaarisIf the 3090 is 10% better than the 3080, where could they possibly slot the 3080 ti in performance wise? Like is the 3090 the best we will see from nvidia for this generation for gaming? Not value just fps
ZalavaarisBut how will they slide between the two if they are already so close? 10% away from 3090 to 3080. So a 3080 ti will be 5% better with 20 gigs of vram? This all doesn't quite add up to me. The delta in performance down the product stack makes zero sense. Its almost like the 3080 is too good if that was their plan.Side note:Is there anything they could do to the 3090 to make it better from a hardware standpoint? 3090 ti? What would that even look like? The 3090 seems maxed out on everything already.
gsrcrxsithe 3090 isnt maxed out. theres still a few SMs disabled. they could release a "full-die" card and call it a Titan, like they have in the past. Nvidia didnt call this card the "Titan" probably to leave the door open for that sku if they wanted to release it. they implied that the 3090 is "Titan-class", which is not the same as calling it a Titan replacement. Marketing is magical. I'm fairly convinced they will release a Titan for the extra lulz. why not? they have some breathing room. to beef it up a little. $2500 for full die and 24GB VRAM. would be very similar to the 2080ti vs Titan RTX situation. the titan RTX is only barely faster than a 2080ti since it only has a few more SMs, and the price spread is similar.
terry2776that should be the first sign that the 3090 isnt going to impress anyone
rain2_usaI think what's upsetting everyone is that this is advertised as an 8k 60fps card.
rain2_usaI think what's upsetting everyone is that this is advertised as an 8k 60fps card. If the performance jump is only ~20%max over a 3080, it doesn't seem reasonable to assume it can push 8k at 60fps without sacrificing a ton. I'm sure the 3080 can push 8k 60fps easily with RTX if a game was rendering in low wireframe mode (just to making a point).

I'm sure the 3080 can push 8k 60fps easily with RTX if a game was rendering in low wireframe mode (just to making a point). that shouldn’t be confusing anyone, it’s not a 8K 60fps raw/native, it’s an 8K 60fps with DLSS 2.1, which will render around 4K. it’s proven it can do that without any issues... so no BS there.
arestavoApparently the 24th, 6AM PST the same time as cards go on sale. Le Sigh.https://mobile.twitter.co...us/1308358228376461314
NereusIt's almost as if NVidia want us to make an uninformed decision when buying - and they know we can't take time to check the legit reviews first because the bots will buy all the stock up in minutes. This is on NVidia btw, not EVGA. Coming close to convincing me to wait for a 3080 Super/Ti, or just stick with my $1,500 EVGA RTX 2080 TI FTW3 ULTRA HYBRID GAMING GPU which almost halved in value overnight...
d.burnetteBots don't care about reviews LOL.They will likely be the only ones getting cards ordered tomorrow.
