Rumors say Nvidia will be lowering the price mid December to possibly $999 or $1099. Maybe it will attract more buyers. I had no intentions of getting one of these but an offer came up I couldn't say no to. I had a coworker offer me a solid amount for my 3080ti...I guess they're going for good money again on eBay after dipping down for a while. This made it so the 4080 cost me $167 after tax and discount. I know the 4090 is the better card, but it's impossible to find and would have been roughly $600 after tax. $167 for this seemed like a great deal. I see no one made a thread for this yet, so I figured I'd brave it out and be the one lol. I was able to mess with it yesterday for a bit. DLSS 3 seems decent enough. I noticed a really big improvement with Plague Tale Requiem. The game is a snooze fest for me, but demanding enough to use gamepass and download as a benchmark. The IQ was solid and the gameplay felt smooth. I was worried it would feel off. Every game I tried DLSS 3 in had a huge improvement in frames and felt fine gameplay wise. I didn't notice any crazy latency. Even in a game like Bright Memory where the gameplay is rather fast paced. Non DLSS 3 games are nice because I am able to upscale for crisper visuals with playable frames. Gears 5, I run at 4k, but then through the in-game menu I set the resolution adjuster to 150%. Still hitting 80fps this way. This really helps make the visuals pop out more. The connector was easy enough, snapped in place, used my phone flashlight to make sure it was completely plugged in. It's a great card. I would wait for the price slash. But then, if it appeals to you, it has to be quick, before it sells out or gets nabbed by scalpers and then you wind up paying current price. Which is why for $167 I said screw it, I'll do this now and not have to worry about an upgrade until possibly the 5 series. Anyone else out there brave enough to admit they bought one?
