I've saved the Control DLC2 for 3080 since I want to experience it in 4K.
Argh... i'd say that very much depends upon the game, and your willingness to lower settings! But i personally feel that if you are going to lower settings, then that kinda defeats the purpose of playing at 4k in the first place.
I really want to enjoy specific numbers. I do not care if 2080ti was the top gpu for 5 years. If 3090 cannot provide the numbers I want I am not willing to buy even that. I do not want to compromise anything. I feel like a victim when gpu vendors are inferior to monitor manufacturers. Supposedly gpus use a superior more sophisticated technology. But...
Probably a 3080. But have to wait for real reviews before saying definitely.
Everyones got ants in their pants and i'm sitting here expecting my 2080ti tomorrow, got a line-up of games to keep me busy for months, don't get me wrong I could get 3080 in 4 weeks time but i'll be busy till CP2077.
enjoy the 3k series folks, at this time I couldn't care less.
Yeah i was weighing that up. I'm thinking Nvidia will release a RTX 3080Ti which will offer very similar performance to the RTX 2090 but for $1000 as opposed to $1400. It might be prudent to buy a RTX 3080 now then sell it on eBay next year right before the 3080Ti refresh hits.
Admit it, you do care at least a little bit.
Yep 3080 on the 17th so I can enjoy my 48" OLED in its full 4k HDR 10bit joy.
I'm hoping to wait out till bigger vram variants arrive, but i'm pretty much already sold on them.
Same here. 1070 and a 1600x
I need to see hard numbers. VR, 1080p and 4k, then, maybe 3080.
I'm still waiting for them to dig up their classic names like... Ultra...
and the ridiculous flashy boxes of yesteryears
I'm tempted by the 3080, like many. But I have my concerns and reservations. I'm also waiting for Big Navi's round, and I'll see what that one can offer. After both of them have been fully revealed, analyzed and reviewed I'll make up my mind. However, in the back of my mind I know that I'm probably not really in need of, nor even wanting that much power such as found in the 3080. What I'm really looking for is to not 'run out' of VRAM.
So, if for example the 'equivalent' 3080 from AMD offers more VRAM (by at least 2+ GB) but happens to be something like... let's say around 15% slower (average) then I think I would go with AMD instead. Since the actual raw power of the 3080 might be overkill at 1440p. What I will truly need at 2K is the vRAM when running RTX On, on top of everything else maxed out. In other words, right now, if the 3070 would have had another version with 12GB, I would skip the 3080 and just go for the 3070 right away. It would be a sweet spot for me (even if it was 100$ extra, but still lower than the 3080's price with more vRAM, then hell yeah I would).
But yeah, right now? I'm definitely in 'stand by' and waiting for more mode (c'mon AMD, it's your turn now).
I have not decided yet, will wait for rdna2 before making one.
Anyone in the market for an AIB i'd advise looking at MSI gaming x trio, if it's anything like the 2k series version you won't be disappointed. I had a MSI ventus before this and it doesn't compare.
The only brand i've had issues so far are inno3d and lower tier gigabyte coolers.
Brand i tried recently are MSI,EVGA,Gigabyte,Inno3d.
Best coolers are Asus Strix ones, EVGA FTW3 or XC series
I have owned only one MSI GTX1080Ti Gaming X 11G and temperatures hasn't been bad just meh, under water that card run 55°C in quite cold ambient temperature, on other hand my EVGA GTX1080Ti has been running 36-38°C in same loop
If I will be getting RTX 3090 then probably EVGA or Asus Strix again
Hope this helps
Regarding issues with coolers:
I had a KFA2 GTX580 and screws started to fall out of it from brand new.
Many screws holding the cooler on were in place but had only been lightly screwed in, most were loose and falling out.
It wasnt possible to access them without removing a plate with a "do not remove" sticker so I had to ask for support.
I created an account but their website wouldnt allow me to login the 2nd time despite using saved data for the login.
Once they fixed that I created the support case and found their document uploading was not secure.
This didnt inspire me so havent used them since.
Hehe, I guess it also depends on the case. I did try a 2080Ti Strix for a few days but it wasn't better than my Gaming X Trio.
Decided to postpone the purchase as i want to see how RX6000 does and i want to get a 4950X as well.
So far the 1080TI does a damn good job that fits my needs.
