    tried to get a 3080 was gonna use it till I could get a hybrid 3090 and sell it my brother at that point but no chance for me this morning - closest I got was newegg.ca and as soon as I added to cart and went to checkout it was already sold out lol, looks like I will be using my 2080ti till stock normalizes on the 3090 and evga's hybrids are are out

    Not sure I’m even going to attempt to buy the RTX 3090 on launch day if the RTX 3080 launch is anything to go by.

    Can’t say I’m to surprised however, there were similar issues when I ordered my 2080Tis, ordered in August and didn’t deliver until mid October.

    there's little reason to upgrade that soon, this isn't a 5950U to 6800U moment :) or even a 8800Ultra moment...
    that ultra does sound procreating sexy...

    3080 Ultra does ring a lot better than Titan or 3090... sounds more exclusive... more special, even if the bump isn't all that hyped to be for the $$$

    Now the waiting game to see who gets more stock in. Nvidia really should pump these cards out to meet demand. Until the new year, as soon as these come in, they are gonna sell out quick.

    It's just because it's priced right, otherwise it's better than 20 series, but not overwhelmingly better. I suspect by christmas we all will have a 30 series card, if we want to.
    No need to rush now, just a little bit more waiting. As for waiting for a new batch, or supply, I had this with my monitor that had to come from overseas. I still ordered it and had to wait for a month to arrive in my country. Was worth the wait though.
    So don't get me wrong, if I order this card today, I too would want it within a week. But unfortunately with new products, it can take a bit longer.

    It's not a big step up from a 2080ti, but it is over the 2080 and the super. The price makes them quite attractive though.

    Although a 3080 would have been great my 2080s is enough to play the division2 @4k with mostly very high setting, also ACC runs very high @1440p 75hz on 32" simrig screen so no rush here....next year maybe....right about the time they announce the 4xxx lol

    I'm not not worried about the 10GB. As you say, texture streaming is improving. It should hold out 1-2 years and for the price that reasonable time to upgrade to next gen of cards if the VRAM usage surpases the 10GB limit on this card and still recoup some cost of the card by reselling it.

    I'd say your 2080Ti will do a stella job of handling Cyberpunk 2077.
