  1. AMD's new cards (and the new consoles) do have hardware RT support, this was announced by them months ago. https://www.pcworld.com/article/3530346/amd-talks-pc-gpu-ray-tracing-as-it-looks-to-the-future-of-ryzen-and-radeon.html
  2. Known for quite some time. https://www.tweaktown.com/news/74815/zotac-is-preparing-8-new-geforce-rtx-30-series-cards-so-far/index.html
  3. Agreed, and now with the latest CP2077 delay announced today, I am in absolutely zero rush to get a card. Will be really curious to see how the landscape looks when the dust settles, and if Nvidia starts using the imperfect leftover 3080 chips to ship a 3070 Ti like the new rumors suggest.
  4. I don’t necessarily think that’s the case, Nvidia crushing AMD just by allowing 3070 reviews, and I definitely don’t think most people pre-ordered 3080s; very few retailers even allowed it and for many of those that did, it is now known that companies like ASUS and EVGA are not restocking non-OC cards at this time so if you pre-ordered one of those you could be waiting well into 2021. Lots of people openly hoping AMD comes out swinging so they can actually buy a card of some kind this year. If anything Nvidia should have made their cards available today to pull off an upset, but because you can’t buy them for two more days, Nvidia has played its hand and now the ball is very much in AMDs court.
  5. 3070 launch is the day after RDNA 2 announcement, and we don’t even know when AMD’s actual launch is. Launch = product available to buy
  6. Tomorrow is the announcement, launch is TBD. If we’re lucky, launch will be in early November with Zen 3.
  7. Honestly not that surprised. I’m looking at it as a good thing actually as it means more time to get a new GPU. Now let’s see MLID “leak” a conspiracy that Nvidia paid CDPR to delay so they can sell more RTX cards
  8. If you plan to overclock the FTW is a better card; much higher power limit and 3x8-pin power. If you plan to leave it stock the TUF is better and is a quieter card.
  9. That is interesting. Honestly a “3070 Ti” with those specs would be a perfect 1440p card if such a thing is released. I was hoping to grab a new card before Cyberpunk releases but the plain 3070 just does not seem like enough of an upgrade from the 1080 Ti I currently have. Really excited to see what AMDs new cards look like and how Nvidia responds.
  10. Gamers Nexus on YouTube linked two different brand 3090s for a SLI test, you should watch the whole thing start to finish as the whole video is very enlightening (941W under load!!!)
  11. Those are old rumors, the more recent information indicates Nvidia has cancelled all plans for extra 3070 and 3080 variants until the mid-cycle refresh, as they are definitely not having any troubles selling the cards they already have available. https://videocardz.com/newz/nvidia-allegedly-cancels-geforce-rtx-3080-20gb-and-rtx-3070-16gb
  12. Real MVP is the Jazz Multimedia Rendition V2200 “Bonnie and Clyde” GPU that had both PCI and AGP connections; you could flip it over and move the I/O plate to the other side to use either or.
  13. I would not expect the new PowerVR card to be remotely competitive in the gaming sphere. Intel has a better shot at releasing a competitive GPU, and even then I would expect it to be sub-AMD (Intel couldn’t even release a good GPU when they were on the top of their game in the Pentium days and there were like 7 other companies in the running). AMD has bested Nvidia before. It’s been a long time though (78xx/79xx, R9, etc). I don’t honestly think AMD will have the “best” card this generation but it sure seems like Lisa Su’s leadership has finally lit a fire under their ass to focus their resources and truly be competitive. If RDNA2 is even close to this good, RDNA3 should be a treat.
  14. They built a bunch of giant empty buildings where nothing is happening, basically. They keep trying to use loopholes such as hiring temp workers and building show production lines for photo ops to claim they have accomplished something, but the whole area they occupy is a ghost town with no real purpose. They couldn’t prove that they hired enough people so they lost out on a bunch of the promised money, but the main loss is the infrastructure the state and surrounding towns invested in to support a factory that does not exist. People’s homes literally got bulldozed for Foxconn and now there is nothing to show for it. Foxconn may not have received the subsidies that they have been vying for, but there were still billions of dollars invested to support them that will never be recouped. Even if Foxconn delivered the cost to us taxpayers would have been something absurd like $70,000 USD per job created from the subsidies. Many locals including myself thought the whole deal was a terrible idea from the beginning and never took Foxconn seriously but the government was jebaited into plowing a deal through.
