    I'm out of the loop, but I think that Ethereum has been the go-to altcoin for miners for some time already.

    If it's 3-4 times faster than 2080? Almost undoubtedly. It's hard to imagine they've hoarded enough cards to satisfy both gaming and mining market, especially right at the launch.

    It could be a store that sells video cards who also happens to have mining setup in a back room (doesn't look like a large operation) for their own purposes.

    RTX 20xx card owners here in my neck of the woods are dumping their cards, but I think the reality of their present situation hasn't quite sunk in yet. They are asking for prices that many would not touch, not much off regularly priced new cards. The asking price of an RTX2080 Ti is higher than the expected price of a new RTX 3080, likewise the RTX2080 price may be higher than the estimated price of an RTX3070. The thing is, they're stubbornly clinging on to their pricing, refusing to allow for some discount, if at all. When the RTX3xxx series is released next week, the price of their cards would probably tank.....why pay more, or same amount, for an RTX2080 Super when an RTX3070 can be had?

    Not sure but AIB Turing cards have DVD containing utility software and drivers? I know Pascal did but not sure if they stopped.

    Turing did not get drivers on disk at launch.

    So uh...with the probability of the 3080 being difficult to get hold of at launch I'm considering all options but AIB models seem to want 3x8pin, so I went rummaging in the attic to find the box for my PSU.

    The extra 8pin that goes into the PSU only has 7pins, will that be a problem at all?

    What I would like to see is a 2080Ti card over clocked till it cries compared to a regular 3080. Then you will be able to see the real difference. As I have been saying over and over I wonder why Nvidia didn't show off their cards prowess in the release video. And a Vulcun non ray tracing demo tells me nothing. I do believe it is a better card at a way better price, but just show me!

    They did show off their card in like multiple different scenarios, you for some reason just want some ultra specific one - in the launch thread there was a bunch of people asking for the opposite of you wanted, a non-RT title, which they gave.

    Its pretty clear you can't please everyone - just wait for the cards to get launched and benchmarks then you'll have your answer.

    Anyone thinking of buying a 3080, just relax and pretend it doesnt exist for another couple months, then look for it. You'll be better off from a mental health perspective. Also pretend you didnt hear about it being a good mining card and that miners may snap them up left and right and inflate the price.

    I am thinking these cards will be in short supply to begin with... How high will the msrp+++ price be?

    Deeper dive into Ampere than anything else I've seen.

    This is good advice. I'm slowly losing my mind about trying to snatch one of these at Nvidia.com, whenever the preorders go live, but in reality I just want to get over my disappointment at not getting one, seethe for a while and move on. By the time there is any real chance of getting a 3080 RDNA2 cards will be available and I will be in a better position to see what's what.
