    We just updated our GeForce RTX 3070, 3080 and 3090 preview with sone nice unboxing and product photos. NVIDIA is not allowing anything more than that. Have a peek to see what we're currently workin...

    I'm jealous!

    So 14th is the date we say some benchmarks?

    @Hilbert Please do some Vram usage testing @1080p, 1440p and 4k. I am curious how much ram is being used at 1440p since i game at that resolution. Have fun playing with the new toy :D

    Wait, wasn't the "not allowed to power it on" part of the restricted things ?

    You powered it on ! (showing the white LED)

    I have older MB with PCI-E 3.0. Will it make any difference in performance in games with RTX 3080 ?, CPU is 4790k OCed at 4.8Ghz on water. Yes I will upgrade soon but not until black friday offers in november :)

    I know you're already insanely busy but if you do get a chance to test pcie 3 vs 4 for performance that would be wonderful.

    No worries if not, just something I am curious about mind you only the 3090 might push pcie3 to the limit

    PCI-E 3 vs 4 won't make a difference and you can rest assured that it doesn't because Nvidia showed performance benchmarks in their presentation using a Core i9.

    That adapter is going to frack up the aesthetics/cable management.

    The PCB size isn't a problem i have seen them extend the pin location before using wires.

    @Hilbert Hagedoorn I guess we have to wait for the 14th of September to have some results?

    There's just no way in a gaming-related matter that even an RTX 3090 would flood the PCIe Gen 3 bus. Historically PCIe Gen lane changes are a few % in differential at best as the bus is utilized merely a few percent. You can safely assume less than 10% bus utilization for RTX 30 on PCIe Gen 3.0. With that said, at a later stage, we certainly can do a separate PCIe Generational scaling test. Which has to be done on a Ryzen platform for obvious reasons.

    Cheers for the response HH, was just on reading the AMA nvidia did saying PCIE4 could matter a small amount, but could be they are being a bit dramatic. I know RTX 2080ti was the first to go past PCIe 3 x8 in some games, so would be a big jump if this is the case

    well i think pci4 will be needed if they want to stream in those hi res textures at lightening speed into the game.

    The only time it has mattered so far is one case with the 5500 XT 4GB VRAM card. The faster PCIe 4.0 was compensating for a lack of VRAM.

    The GeForce RTX 3090 in SLI might benefit from PCIe 4.0.

    More VRAM solves that issue. You can buffer textures way ahead of time. GDDR6 is mucho faster.

    According to Nvidia 4.0 won't make much of a difference compared to a fast CPU.

    Looking forward to the review. I assume by the photos that we'll have to wait a bit longer for 3090 review?
