    Is it just me or is this the laziest generation of cards I have ever seen?

    I feel like they're just using the same PCB, and just changing around vram and the chip.

    Cause a triple fan of this size on this level of card is just stupid. Just adds to cost for no reason. Should be a dual fan at most

    Damned if they do, damned if they don't .... they create the lower / cheaper TUF series for what you require, also they'll introduce a ASUS Dual. However, if they do not out ROG STRIX it would upset many people.

    Many wrote on October: " Dont buy GPU now, wait till 3060 come out".

    I'm more bothered by it being 2.5 slots, rather than the triple fan. It's a hot GPU, but it's not that hot. Regardless, as long as scalpers and miners keep damaging the supply chain, these companies might as well make a profit.

    These, in theory, should have better availability. I'm sure they're still going to be sold out everywhere, but there will still be more of them.

    I sure hope waiting will pay off.

    Still the coil whine persists. FFS, this is stupid... Seeing today's prices, the last thing I want is to pay up to 600 Euro here for a card that will squeal under average load.

    Yeah there are cheaper models, it just seems to insanely overkill... If they release a 3050 with this as well I might cry
