  1. I think the price of the memory is why the release date or cost of the 20GB 3080 haven't been announced yet, and also why the 3090 is so much more expensive than the 3080, despite the rest of the specs really not warranting that large a gap. We probably won't see a release of that model until the manufacturing of GDDR6X ramps up to full production and economies of scale start reducing cost, at which point jasonc_01's prediction might come true. Hopefully that doesn't take too long but I would expect around 6 months.
  2. Looking at EVGA's lineup they're not going with the reference PCB design but rather the traditional design and their water-cooled versions look just like the 20-series. https://www.evga.com/articles/01434/evga-geforce-rtx-30-series/ I doubt there will be much of a market for aftermarket water blocks for the reference PCB design considering no AIB seem to be using it. The weird shape of the PCB would cost considerably more to manufacture a block for too.
  3. That may be an old render. nVidia has a history of making these kind of last-minute changes before major announcement. Easier to change a comparison chart than renders.
  4. If that was the case I would expect them to state so. I'm thinking they're keeping the 12-pin connectors either for the next gen or the cards released in the second half of this gen lifecycle in order to give PSU suppliers time to adjust product lines.
  5. They have a note on the advanced card comparison at https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/graphics-cards/30-series/ that says: 1 - Up to 4k 12-bit HDR at 240Hz with DP1.4a+DSC. Up to 8k 12-bit HDR at 60Hz with DP 1.4a+DSC or HDMI2.1+DSC. With dual DP1.4a+DSC, up to 8K HDR at 120Hz
  6. Looks like they abandoned the 12-pin connectors for these three models. The advanced card comaprison at https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/graphics-cards/30-series/ shows 2x 8-pin for the 3090 and 3080 and 1x 8-pin for the 3070.
  7. We probably will once the claims have been proven and benchmarked independently. Developer adoption will be a huge factor that's unknown as well.
  8. Of course but over time VRAM size used to pretty much double every generation. Now it's two generations later and it's shrinking. It's just unusual is my point. A testament that better graphics no longer require bigger textures/assets but rather more horsepower to process existing textures/assets.
  9. Micron must really raking them over the coals over the price of GDDR6X if their "flagship" GPU only has 10GB of it when two generations ago a 1080Ti had 11GB.
  10. Getting more for less is a good thing, always. You're delusional if you're making yourself feel bad about it. If you were happy with your purchase yesterday there's absolutely no logical reason not to still be happy about it.
  11. Who should I get in touch with if I want to donate a couple of prizes for this?
  12. First post of this thread, the link is at the top of the post.
  13. So I'm trying to get started on this and following the Quick Start guide in the first post of the thread, at one point it says to select "OpenZIKA" in the sub-project but that's not an option. The five options I have are: "Africa Rainfall Project", "Microbiome Immunity Project", "Help Stop TB", "FightAIDS@Home - Phase 2" and "Mapping Cancer Markers". Which one should I select?
