    This is kinda a duplicate of your other open ended post where you ponder SLI or single 3090.

    Many things:
    a) no 3xxx in shops (I think 2080ti should be swapped to 3090, not 3080)
    b) no waterblocks for 3xxx yet
    c) bad feeling about first revisions :) Like on 2xxx start there was huge problems with dying gpus.
    d) 2080ti right now is enough - well, rdr2 could be better, but most games is running very good.
     
    So I am waiting till spring at least. And on spring - maybe swap gpu. Maybe sell my pc and build new one from scratch. Maybe - sell my pc, my monitor, all my other stuff and move to Japan :) IDK :)

    Dont feel the 3080 is worthy to replace my 2080ti Kingpin. No point.. close to the same thing. 3090 is a little notch up but is it worthy enough to spend like $2500 (guessing) on for the Kingpin? Trouble of tearing the loop apart and doing it all over again?

    I've got time and patience to wait for all those benches and the water block :).

    All great responses. I think coming from 1080 Ti's-SLI it could be a better upgrade option for myself. I just upgraded to a Samsung Odyssey G9 49" Gaming Monitor. I know I can't unlock the full protentional of the monitor without upgrading to a 20 or 30 series card. I can honestly say I love this monitor. I have gamed at 5120x1400 with 1080 Ti SLI at 120Hz. It is free of any QC defects that ruined the early launch of the product. Does anyone else have this monitor? I'm also stuck with 8-bit color depth. Until I can get a 20 or 30 series which supports full10-bit Output color depth.

    What's stopping you from upgrading to the 30 series from a 2080 Ti?

     
    As an owner of two 2080 Ti's in SLI, 3080 is not on my upgrade list. I was going to get two 3090's, but since two 3090's can't be SLI'ed together after Nvidia dropped SLI support, I'm not really happy if a single 3090 can't beat two 2080 Ti's in pre-DX12 titles, which I still mostly play.

    Yes, I'm going to go with the 2080 Ti's SLI/NVLINK. I will also pass on the 30 series after these reports. I know the 20 series would scale well at 5120x1400 it's not 4k, 5K It's a good sweet spot resolution for gaming. Just like when 3440x1400 was the thing.

    Money. 
     
    I'd like a pair of 3090's for workstation use. :)  I want to see how they compare to the RTX Titans with NVLink. 
     
    Heck, honestly, I'd like 4 if they can be stocked in 2-slot spacing.

    I think if you buy something like the 2080ti, you're looking to keep it for a generation or two. Some might enjoy how their games run and will wait for the 4000 series. I'm still on the 1070 and just had a grand old time playing AC: Odyssey in 1440p mostly highest settings. Old cards still work!

    Unless the DLss2.0 And the new Raytracing is important to you, Its not worth it IMO. I am in the Skip a Gen crowd still Personally. But I have 750ti atm So i am going for a 3090 FTW3/Ultra (either one IDC).

    Nice monitor! Here's my best 1080 Ti SLI (Kraken G10 brackets with a Kraken X41/X61 AiO for watercooling) vs my best air cooled 3090 FTW3 Ultra Time Spy score: https://www.3dmark.com/compare/spy/14215251/spy/11470743#
     
    For me, it was availability until I managed to snag one - and I only got the 3090 because I couldn't get a 3080 due to the lack of available cards at MSRP. Just say no to scalpers.
     
    Really nice having that much power in a single card without the need for SLI (press F to pay respects).

    The 3080 is an amazing card but a lot of people will still be happy to game on a 2080ti without feeling the need to spend $699 or more. I can go a generation with the flagship card without feeling like I need to upgrade.

    For me.. its the fact the 3080s are not available without spending at least $400 (likely more like $800) more then list.  I am in the step-up queue here.... so a year or less I will have my 3080.

    honestly unless you do a lot of raytracing, a 2080 ti will be enough. Its like a 30% difference. If you OC your 2080 ti, the difference will be halfed too.
