    I am waiting for benchmarks, and as i am only using 1440p my 2080 super will be fine my future upgrade is looking good. i am happy to wait for 30 series refresh in a year or sooner if RDNA2 is good and priced to compete .

    Did I not see 12 pin on those Nvidia slides? Anyway the specs of the 3080 are very impressive and at £649 UK pricing it seems like a nice upgrade over the 1080ti class cards I have now. Overall better than expected.

    Turing and Ampere do not function in Gen 1.0/1.1 motherboards.

    Nope, all 3 founders use the 12pin

    It is using DLSS, yes.

    Got carried away by this (and indeed you clearly see the 12 pins on the PCB, that's weird)

    Think i just begin to realize how big the 3090 is, it's actually 4cm wider than my previous EVGA 2080-ti XC Ultra which was 27cm.

    Just took measurements, it should fit :D

    519€ for the RTX 3070 and 719€ for the RTX 3080 in Europe... not bad at all. Prices of Founders Edition.

    It looks like my GTX 980Ti will finally get its well-deserved rest.

    Seems the 3070 basically has the same cooler design, but the rear fan is on the same side.

    The card is also open on the back and blows air towards the CPU cooler.

    Very impressed, specs were much higher than expected, pricing for the 3080 is really good, memory sizes are a little hit or miss but with their new Nvidia I/O tech this could be their answer to AMD's HBCC and Sony NVME tech.#

    The pricing of that 3080 really surprised me, that is this card I would 100% go for my self as the 3090 is just too expensive, big bulky, and probably power hungry too plus who actually has an 8K monitor?

    However, for Nvidia to be pricing the 3080 so well and not trying to price hike it upwards of the $1000 range like rumoured. This could bold very well for what AMD has got with RDNA2 as Nvidia probably knows what they have. AMD needs to start talking before September 17th as I shall be very tempted too purchase a 3080 FE otherwise as this upgrade is too good to pass up on.

    Well, can we agree that this time we did get a pleasant surprise (if benchmarks back up Huang's claims)?

    Cant wait for the reviews to see how much was slick marketing vs actual performance.

    Yeah lots of tensor flop perf and other stuff not about rasterization but the crazy cuda core count tells a story, I think. 8704 on the 3080 is a lot. O_O

    Anyone else think COVID might have had an impact on these prices? They seem too good for the specs listed especially on the 3080.

    I think its a mixture of new consoles, rdna2 performance actually being good (we hope), and the impact of covid otherwise I think the 3080 would of been a lot closer to the $999 mark.

    Either way its looking great, lets just see those benchmarks in action. I also hope availability will be good for the 3080

    Was just about to post that. So the 3080 comes with the 12-pin connector.

    Comes close to 200% in some titles (passes it in Doom a few times) but Nvidia definitely being liberal with that "up to" part lol. Still not bad.

    When the 3070 price was announced, felt the scream of dispair from all the 2080ti owners when their card lost 85% of it's value.

    I've soured a bit on DF after a few of their recent videos were sponsored by Nvidia but to be clear I don't think they're dishonest but they have amended the titles to now just say [sponsored] which doesn't inspire confidence.
