    I don`t get it. The 3080 is everywhere on Youtube. No one has a 3090 unboxing or even a photo of one on a motherboard. Maybe they are super short on supply. I know many people say just get a 3080 but really the 3090 is only £200 more than my 2080 ti FE cost, so say i got a couple of hundred for my card it works out the same sort of price for I guess much more power.

    Its a titan renamed to be consumer card offering some extra performance and costs a kidney.

    Even Jensen himself called a 3080 flagship not 3090.

    Everyone is happy with 3090. They look themselves on the mirror, they feel super rich and drink water to Jensen's health. They really believe they acquired a life now. 3090 points please. Here here! Thank you!

    Live your myth. Live your legacy!

    You shoot me down but I won't fall
    I am titanium!

    The 3090 releases a week after the 3080 on 24th September and the 3080's were shipped to reviewers 7 days before release so my guess is that reviewers will get them for 17th September so I would expect to start seeing numerous unboxing videos on YouTube on or around that date next week.

    As you know we've got NDAs in place for the 3080 series. We got 3080 teasers yesterday, reviews are on Monday and then sales start on Thursday. I believe we've got the same thing with 3090 so we can guess that teasers will be released next thursday or something?

    Btw, there is a photo of a 3090 pre-production sample out there.

    Regarding 3080 vs 3090, the main problem really is that you pay 100% more money for ~20% more power (at least theoretically). But if you can afford it, go right ahead.

    I guess will have to see real performance in reviews on the net at 4K. One advantage is that extra week to see reviews of the 3080. I do find it amazing that Nvidia doesn’t let the reviewers who have been sent a card actually show it running. I would have thought if the jump is that amazing that they would love to show how much better it is before it’s release. I know people will comment that nvidia showed performance, but no performance compared to a 2080 ti. Will find out soon I guess

    One thought on the price. I would have thought a few people here would have spent the sort of money a 3090 costs on a holiday plus spending money etc. Well that’s gone in a week or two where a graphic card will last a few years. Just trying to justify it. That’s the point I put to my wife. He he

    I use the same, plus if you give up smoking, you can use the "I' saving £3500 a year on not smoking", so card is cheap, 3x holidays plus 3 years smoking @ $15000 or £1500 on card that will last 3 years
    I got it all sorted.... thank god she doesn't smoke and doesn't like flying lol gives me money for PC's
    roll on the 3090... or will there be a 3080ti :eek::D
