11GB for RT in 4k that's why i opted for 3080Ti....
Should have gone for 3090
I am indeed happy with my choice. The 3090 has not let me down thus far.
2.7k € -> Im not crazy bro.... (almost 2x my 3080Ti lol).
I hear ya man. I would never pay an overcharged scalpers price for any hardware. I purchased my PC from Microcenter in 2020 before the insane price hikes. MSRP for me. To be totally honest it was open boxed about $170 bucks cheaper.
This kind of 3090 -> Yes
Im sure they’ll do something about this. Top few cards have more than 10-12GB of RAM. Can’t win anything against consoles like this.
Once you let the hardware genie out of the bottle, putting it back in is like trying to put the pin back in a grenade...
@Falkentyne You are absolutely, positively, without a shadow of doubt......CORRECT!
The inner techie in us just wants to see, tweak, benchmark, overclock, build and play extremely smooth with fantastic visuals. I know deep down when the 4000 series or AMD's next big cards drop I'm going to be so tempted. lol
Believe it or not, I got that quote from someone on forums back in 1997, (not the part about the grenade and the pin, I got that from either Quake 1 or Quake 2) when Unreal came out and people with Voodoo1 cards and Pentium 1 MMX's were getting 20 FPS...(needed to upgrade to Pentium 2 300 and Voodoo2 to get 60 FPS at 640x480...)
I remember those days and they were such good times. I ran 2 Voodoo cards in SLI @1024x768. Quake 2, Unreal and Shogo were my favorites in 97-98. Shadows of The Empire ran beautifully on Voodoo cards also. Jedi Knight Dark Forces II and Rogue Squadron were awesome as well. I remember the first time I held the Slot 1 Pentium 2 350mhz in my hands. I felt a rush! Lol! I got a free upgrade to 450mhz by asking my boss if I could swap processors from his office computer. He said yes LOL! A whopping 100mhz increase to go along with my Voodoos.
"Framerate is Everything!" Such a cool slogan.
Everyone has similar memories
First PS1 & 3D .... and many more, Amiga anyone
I absolutely remember the Amiga. How's that beautiful 3080 TI treating you? I've had my system for almost a year and it still runs like a champ. Have you seen your VRAM usage exceed 10gb yet? I haven't witnessed my 3090 VRAM go over 8gb. I've yet to play the new Far Cry though.
Playing 1440p 71Hz so no, mostly is sit around 5->6.5GB....
(Wolf YB is ~7GB RT+DLSS).
Im using MSI AB with GPU/dll to know process usage.
I skipped my stepup due to that. Next generation will be here before that turns out to be a big problem.
3 days ago got myself a 3080 Suprim X and i wanted to give some time for all the thermal pads and all the hardware to go progressively in efficiency. I don't know if it is generally a idea worth the patience but given the "rarity" of these products and their price i feel that i'm on the right path.
Also i wanted to ask owners of this gpu, possibly those who got one recently, if as for me, the thermal pads on Vram are of better make ? Because my card reaches bearly 78°C after one day of mixed games and benchmarks ?
Of course some other things could have improved to lower the temps on the memory chips.
Any feedback is welcome on this matter
The pattern i'll follow is 10 more percent each week.
It is a $2000 video card with a warranty,use the card luke,use the card
78C on the memory temp is good. DDR6X does get hot. Mine is in the mid 80's to low 90's depending on the game played. I'd like to get new thermal pads, but the bloody miners have bought them all up.
My 3080 is turning 1 year next month. I bought it for about USD 1.1K which I thought was ridiculous at that time and I was "biting the bullet"
so glad I "settled" for a Zotac instead of waiting (and unlikely to get) a Strix..the Strix stocks ended being almost impossible to get by and a lot more expensive
