Yes, but this isnt about just you.
Lots of people have older video cards that could use an upgrade. Yeah, of course if you’re running a 2080 or something then waiting makes sense. But nobody says that when they say to wait. They just make blanket statements that everyone should wait. Well no, not everyone should wait.
Yours is the only blanket statement, aimed at everyone.
Embras comment was an alternative worth considering, not a directive.
I didnt want to drag it out this far, I was pointing out where it might not be best to apply for many people.
It’s just a tiring nonstop merry-go-round of suggestions to wait whenever new cards are released.
I generally ignore the merry go round posts (unless there is something they missed or are amusing), they always happen.
I missed this,
I coincidentally just plugged up a DP to DVI adapter today for a security camera monitor on my PC.
It works very well, exactly as if plugged into an HDMI port.
My monitor auto powers on/off as normal too if I enable/disable the display.
I'mm saving for a 3080 I HOPE to god it's at least twice the power of my 2060 Super. If so I'm defo going full in...
Just the same as any other adapter
Well, there are a lot of adapters that barely work at all let alone reliably.
True, i guess i more mean just as well as any other decent working adapter haha
Dvi, hdmi and display port are all digital, so no converting of signals needed.
I'd suggest looking at reviews ofcourse before you purchase a cable, but i have never had any issues with any digital to digital adapter cables. ...but i have also never bought a cable that doesn't at least have 4 out of 5 star reviews on them lol
I’ve had problems with just straight HDMI cables with no adapter to it, and that includes 4+ star review monoprice cables which are supposed to be good. Can’t trust any kind of user reviews or brand anymore, it’s a nightmare.
You have a high-end (at that time) Maxwell GPU.
These things (3080) should be roughly 3-4 times faster than what you have, plus the new features.
For you and anyone still on 900 series, it's definitely a worthy upgrade, actually, it's going to be an amazing upgrade.
For me it would be a "nice" upgrade as well, more than twice faster than what I have ( 1080 ), so once the market stabilizes sometimes next year and they are readily available at MRSP (or lower), sure, I'll hit the CC. (But I have a strong feeling this time it will be a transition to AMD for me personally... and a doubling of VRAM)
But for those already on Pascal High-end (1080 Ti)... eeeeeh... I'm not so sure about it at this point. +60%'ish (or more at 4K) sounds like a nice upgrade, but not sure how many games will actually get that much. Talking here about people that actually care about their money (the large majority of people), not about those that just throw them away like it's nothing...
All 3090 buyers are gonna "spam" dlss usage and they will cry from being touched from it. Eww, not.
yeah wait some more... fuk that!
you order your GPU and you play some sweet games at max settings ; if asked you respond: a doctors order
Interesting. Can't say i relate lol
The difference is that a generation used to be a year... every single time, at prices that were affordable for many. Now it's an absolute minimum of 2 years at such insane prices that it's normal to keep cards for 4 years for those who can afford them. What used to be an upgrade every year, is now a giant once per 4 years event for a lot of people.
I don't need to explain why there's so much hype for this no doubt overrated (2x 2080 performance my asshole) upcoming 3080 with its borderline comical, and straight up miserly 10GB of "lol it's enough so STFU, even though we're charging you for triple what you get" RAM. The market is starved, badly, so badly that many are ready to pay $1500 USD for Jensen to laugh and take a diarrhea dump in their ears.
It's a huge gamble just buying a 3080 or 3090 ASAP. There's just not enough info available and won't be until at least Oct 28, to the point that it's not just illogical to not wait (unless you really need a card NOW), it borders on stupid.
It’s kind of a no brainer upgrade for a lot of us to get the 3080 or 3070. Not even remotely stupid if you’re running a 9 series or older. Still looking pretty good even for 10 series owners.
I agree that the 3090 doesn’t make sense for anyone that doesn’t have the kind of money where they could just throw $1500 away and not notice it.
And what if fat Navi with 80CUs and 16GB RAM rolls around and is actually faster than 2x 5700XT in the real world making it probably faster than a 3090... at $550? Even if it's as fast as a 3080, that's still $150 USD less, and would be faster at 4K or under heavy texture load.
Or if the rumours of a 3080 Ti 20GB turn out to be true, which will no doubt be priced to actually sell unlike the 3090? Not waiting an extra few weeks is going to look pretty procreating stupid then considering most these people are going to sit on that card for half a decade. How long do you think a human lives? That's a long time to be stuck with an impulse buy.
AMD hasn’t beat a 80 card for a long time now. I don’t know why everyone is so convinced that this time is any different. Good buzz marketing by AMD I guess. Even if you’re looking at RAM Nvidia cards with lower RAM have beat out higher RAM AMD cards. It’s not all about the RAM.
I’d bet money that the 3080 ti is priced closer to the 2080 ti as well. Which is out of the range of a lot of people that are looking at the 3080.
