    First in! (Not counting Hilbert :p )

    I don't think Micron knows what Nvidia will call this card and just put in a name they guessed would work.

    So 12gb 3090 confirmed? That makes 3080 10gb card.

    Come on AMD 12/16gb Navi cards. :p

    Not enough for 8K gaming. This generation will be weak.

    You'd be daft not to root for AMD, i partly thank them for my new cpu and without them nvidia may not have as been as quick to launch these cards.
    Not too weak for CP2077 tho, enjoy your 8k gaming!

    I'd argue it's not enough going forward for 4K with ever-increasing texture demands and RTX features. Will Nvidia really be so stingy with VRAM... I might have to wait even longer for a new GPU purchase, which will drive me mad tbh.

    I'll have to see some performance numbers, but my gut feeling is telling me that nvidia is holding back. I wouldn't be surprised to see a "3090Ti" sometime next year with more bells and whistles including more vram.

    Is there some specific evidence the 3080 won't have 11 or 12 GB? I haven't been keeping up on all the rumors.

    Pretty sure the guy that wrote GDDR6x 12 for the 3090 - who was basically just proven right, also said 3080 @ 10GB.

    you know what happened last time we went with micron memory at 2080ti launch..

    Yeah I'm still holding onto my 2K monitor and GTX1070. That has been a great GPU for 2K and it still does pretty well today. I have had this card right at 4 years which is long for me. Nothing has really come out since that generation that made me think I needed a new GPU. Certainly not AMD's paltry mid-range offerings and Nvidia's overpriced overhyped RTX GPU's. I expect this to be the generation I upgrade since we should have some serious performance increases from both camps. I will be waiting to see what AMD has in store before I buy a GPU.

    With all the rumors floating around about 20GB & 24GB cards.. I wouldn't be surprised at all to see them launch with the lower memory variants and later release models using 2GB memory modules on the board to double up the memory.
    Granted I'd imagine the costs for cards with double memory would be sky high!

    I guess it will also be half the price of the model number.

    Isn't that table just full of hypothetical examples? It has RX 5700 XT with 12GB of memory. Does such a thing even exist?

    SImple logic is saying that faster memory bandwidth means that less VRAM is needed, or not? And more VRAM means more expensive card with bigger TDP which could be otherwise used for main GPU?
    Its really need with such bandwidth speed keep all asset within VRAM? Is not good enough use some good asset streaming?

    Also Titan RTX has 24GB of vram which on that table it has only 12GB. I'm pretty sure there is no Titan RTX with 12GB of vram.

    Your average mortal can't dream of 4k and you're upset about 8k? What monitor are you running right now?

    One could argue that with the much higher ram speed and better optimization, you'd be able to do with less.
    I personally would like to see at least the 10 GB on the 3070 non-Ti series...or whatever they end up calling it.
    My old GTX1080Ti had 11 GB GDDR5...of which ACC made use of 7+ with big grids in VR.
    That's the most intense RAM usage I have of any game in my possession currently, so I would be good with the slight overhead.

    Might wanna rename your account, as you clearly dont know much for a "pro".

    Unless the tv is 85in and bigger and sub 10ft away, or your sitting less than 2ft away from 49 or bigger moni, 8K is irrelevant.
