    Coincidentally, 21 years ago was when I retired my SLI Voodoo 2s and the Riva TNT2 Ultra and bought the GF256. Been team green ever since, with only the 9700 Pro stealing me away for a year or two. I really wish AMD would finally release something competitive, I'm tired of nvidia getting all my money all the time.

    So "Marketing" are saying that from what we have now to what is coming is as significant as the big bang??

    And "Engineering" are saying just a 20-30% jump in total in raster performance over 2080Ti...

    Hilarious.

    Or maybe marketing means the price increase will be astronomical?

    I'm assuming they're going to try to bleed us dry. Everyone's increasing prices at the top end these days. 30% over 2080Ti wouldn't be anything to scoff at, though.

    I dont think "engineering" commented on anything. Rumors of 20-30% is a nice gain if it applies to the 3080.

    I would argue with that 'SLI works well' part of your comment:D

    Exactly. I don't know what people are expecting generation over generation, but 30% would be quite a bump. I don't think the 3080 is aimed at 2080S or 2080Ti owners anyway, much like the 2080s weren't all too enticing to previous generation owners. I think nvidia spoiled many people with the 1080, which knocked it out of the park. I don't think it's realistic to expect these kind of gains now. That said, one can dream.

    They sure are referring the price, performance increase has been nothing spectacular recently.

    Nvidia is so good at milking free advertising. Have to hand it to there marketing department. They have all the fanboys and tech sites a buz about a announcement date when they plan to announce when cards will come out.

    Honestly this would be such a bad move, increasing the price even further on top of the 2080Ti would be suicide. With the new consoles rumoured to be around the $500-$600 range and this generation offering some really strong hardware they will just end up losing money and people leaving the PC platform for console, or people will just snap up a 2000 series card for a small upgrade but at a cheaper price.

    Keeping the current price structure is still bad enough, but it can be warranted. I think they tested the waters with the 2000 series prices and people brought them but they didn't have new consoles to compete with and the rumoured AMD "halo product". Nvidia would be crazy to increase prices now........ But I wouldn't put it passed them.

    SLI is dead. Dead.

    As for the 1080Ti, pretty much the best card I've had in 20 years. 3.5 years after launch and can still hold its own. But I'll retire it it for Ampere for sure.

    I'm looking at this as a possible upgrade from my EVGA 1080 down the line.

    I hope I am wrong, but probably I'm gonna keep my 1080ti for one more gen. I don't see us getting a 50% better card for 500USD or a 70% better one for 700 USD. (That's my "each 10% upgrade cost max 100 USD" rule)

    Edit : Navi 3 or Hopper it's probably the gen I will end getting...

    It's all speculation right now, anyway. We'll know soon enough. Ideally I'd like to sit this gen out too, but if Ampere does bring 20-30% improvement over the 2080Ti, it'll be very difficult to resist.

    I just sold my GTX1080Ti Duke Edition to a 'lucky' fellow from Texas on eBay.
    He got one hell of a deal.
    That thing was the 'Megalodon' of the 1080 world of graphics card.
    I am currently using a cheap 4 gb Zotac GTX770 as a 'hold-over' while waiting to see what the prices of Amphere and Big Navi 2 will be.
    If they're respectable, I'll go with either the 3070 series or the AMD equivalent...which ever has better price versus performance.
    I'll be watching the driver development as well to see if AMD gets their act together.
    If the difference in price is even remotely close and AMD still has not sorted driver support, Huang will get to smell more leather.
    If AMD have the drivers together and price again is close, Lisa will get it.
    Neither gets any new money if the prices are outrageous.
    I'll reserve that for a current GTX2080Ti owner willing to sell.

    3080 or 3080Ti ?

    If it is only 20-30% over 2080Ti that is crap. That is basically them doing nothing except putting the same 2080Ti die on to the 7/8nm process and getting that performance increase for free. ie. when you put same chip from current 2080Ti node to 7nm node you get 20-30% without doing anything else.
