    I'm getting "error story does not exist".

    I added an extra server, however, it is in write-only mode and has not picked up the latest news stories. You'll bounce around the different servers and inevitably you'll load the content until load/traffic normalizes and the primary server back kicks in.

    Okay, that was way more explaining, then I had in my head to answer :)

    Hey Hillbert, when you have the card in your hands and disassemble it, could you take note of the memory chips part number? I´m very curious about that "15.5 Gbps". Is a very strange number, so, so they exist? Could it be a 16 Gbps part clocked down?, 14 Gbps overclocked?

    (Memory clock * 2) / 1000 = Memory data rate

    (7751 * 2) / 1000 = 15.5Gbps

    Most likely these are the exact same memory modules as before, so yes, overclocked...

    If this is true I would not touch this card with at 10' pole.

    I know how memory data rate works, just asked if 14 OC or 16 DC when the card arrives. Until then all are conjectures. But yes, is probably as you say, a 14 OC....

    The earlier articles from WCCFTech said that unlike the previous boards, nVidia is not requiring the VRMs to be standardized. So while the FE card will be kinda meh (albeit even a 5% improvement at the same cost is nothing to sneeze at), OEM cards will likely be able to pull higher OCs and more stability out of their high-end boards.

    The real question is when it is the 2080 Ti Super coming?

    I think that's the card all the 1080 Ti owners want so that they can buy the reg 2080 Ti for cheaper. Still, the reg 2080 Ti would probably still cost 900 bucks really late into this gens life cycle and the 2080 Ti Super would be well over a grand. I'm fine with lowering settings on my 1080 Ti and waiting to see what prices/performance the next gen brings. Just can't see myself ever paying 1000+ dollars for a graphics card. Games are pretty at Ultra Settings and high res, but they ain't worth no 1300 dollars. We need some good competition in the top-tier to keep these prices in check going forward.

    This may very well get me to move away from my 980ti sli setup. Depending of prices of course. Otherwise I might just keep saving for a 3k series. Kind of wish they did a GTX variant with the horse power of these but no rtx parts that I don't want to pay for.

    Unless you are in a dire need I would wait for big Navi and 3K series. We should have a decent jump in performance with those.

    I don't think Nvidia will be riding the performance crown for much longer. Once "big" Navi comes next year with RDNA2, Nvidia will launch Ampere. I expect them both to be competitive if Navi 20 and RDNA2 can deliver either 100 to 128 CUs.

    Nvidia will counter with Ampere on 7nm EUV from Samsung. 5136 cores is where I'd but the RTX 3080 Ti. 16GBs 14-16Gbit memory. Ampere will likely have true hardware async compute and scheduling. Expect another 30-45% performance increase. 30% if they sandbag us like they did with the RTX series, later releasing the Super. I expect a 2.5X increase in RT cores to get RTX playable at 4K. I hope it doesn't cost $1200 again, but it likely will.

    Next year will be interesting though for sure...AMD will be going the Zen route with Radeon, so expect yearly releases of GPUs from now now. It'll likely take another generation for AMD to beat Nvidia, so not big Navi, but the next-gen architecture RDNA3, will be the one to keep an eye on. They'll not only catch up to Nvidia next year, but they'll pass them in 2021. It's going to get very competitive in 2020+. Also Intel might have something...but for now they're no threat.

    big navi won't be competitive with ampere, it'll compete with high end turing.

    reference vrms were only required on the non-A equipped boards.

    Again, you present assumptions as reality.

    I more and more think that fellow gurus are right, like I read in other threads, this is only to keep people buying cards late in the cycle. Even if they'll ever release a 2080TI Super, sure as hell I'm not buying it but rather save my money for Ampere if so. Unless upgrading from older cards, this "refresh" (I guess fab yields improve and that's why those cards even exist) is probably not even worth considering to anybody with a Turing card and maybe even not Pascal cards.

    Keep telling yourself those sweet lies, it is you that suffer from reality substitution.

    I bet you also believe Intel Xe will be competitive with Ampere at launch.

    No my dear. I do not deal with beliefs. I do not do religions, nor delusions.

    I know difference between probability and certainty. I do not use May and Will interchangeably. You do. You behave like some kind of prophet. Making claims as if you knew while you only believe you know.
    - - - -
    And as for that dumb bet. You owe me whatever you was willing to bet. What's that? A lot? Or nothing? Either way, that's exactly how much you yourself know that your claims are worth.

    So, either say that you owe me nothing for lost bet as you backed your bet/claims by nothing. Or deliver that value you put on your claims.

    You're a pretty poor troll.

    Not a troll. Logic! You made another of your baseless claims. Backed it by bet which you automatically lost.

    So, what did you back your claim by? I expect that by nothing. But you may surprise me and value your own empty claims.
    = = = =
    I am not trolling you. I want you to stop making empty claims. And start making clear distinctions between reality and assumptions. It is not that hard to know what you do not know.

    Distinction is easy. Reality is touchable now. What you assume is what you made up in your mind... as fiction or other virtual construct.
