  1. I'd wait to see Nvidia's 20GB/16GB response to Big Navi and stay away until they sort out the POSTCAP issues.
  2. How'd they get 24 GB on the 3090? Sorry if that's a stupid question lol. I'm a dummy. I read it and understood what you said, but my brain just threw it away lol.
  3. Is that assuming games would not require 24? Or is this for some other reason?
  4. Well see, this is my problem. I'm going to be heading off to Vet School and I most likely will not be able to afford an upgrade for a bit. Money will be tight. So for me, I probably will not have the option to simply go out and get a new card if 10 GB VRAM proves to be limiting in 2 years. It's about getting a good card now that has enough VRAM and hopefully doesn't run into these issues later and if I'm stuck with a card, will last me as long as possible. Hence my concern over VRAM.
  5. Why is the 3090 likely to run into this problem? Not being antagonistic, just legitimately curious.
  6. I have a PG279Q (Also 165 Hz) which is 1440p. I plan to stay at 1440p for the foreseeable future. If anything, I would go ultrawide, but again I don't plan on doing that for the next few years anyway. Even if I do get another monitor in the future, it'll most likely be 1440p.
  7. How would one verify if this would indeed be a problem?
  8. I'm Canadian so $1499 US is actually $2000 here. So the 3090 is above what I can justify. Something in between the 3080 and the 3090 could be more doable but, as it stands 3090 is out for me.
  9. So the max available on the card would be 12 GB? 20 would not be possible?
  10. Yeah so already 10 GB is a problem. And I do plan on playing FS2020, so the 10 GB limitation is not very helpful.
  11. Just to clear one thing up really quick, I'm not attributing my performance issues now to VRAM limitations. Not saying that VRAM is the issue and is limiting my FPS. Not saying that at all. I want to upgrade anyway to improve my FPS which will happen when moving from the 1080 ti to the 3080. But the VRAM issue is more for down the line where if games start to require more than 10 GB VRAM, I don't want to be in a place where I am stuck with 10 and unable to upgrade.
  12. I thought that both the 3070/Ti with 12 GB and a 3080 with 20 GB was mistakenly shown by Gigabyte? Not the actual card but a specs sheet or something. It looked credible enough to almost confirm that it exists, but I don't know anything. I think it'll have to be branded as a Ti/Super (probably a Super) because I really doubt that they'll come out and offer regular 3080 branding just with 20 GB VRAM so close to the initial launch of the 10 GB version. They would need some smoke to fill the room if they have to do something like that.
  13. Ah you're one of the lucky ones. I mean that with respect. I'm really sensitive to even minimal graphical settings changes and add in a little bit of OCD, you have someone who does not enjoy turning down settings.
  14. Yeah I would agree IF the rumors are correct. I mean why would they release a Ti/Super variant of the 3080 when they don't have all that much room to work with? The VRAM would be the thing to increase. I guess the question is, do they hold it back until next year or compete with Big Navi? Or release it all? I guess this all depends on Big Navi.
  15. And this is what I'm worried about. Sure it's fine now, but in 2-3 years we don't know what's going to happen. That does work on both sides though. There could be some games that could all of a sudden require more than 10 GB (And as luck has it, I will probably want to play those) or they run fine with 10 GB. But in my case, I don't plan on upgrading again for a little bit as I probably won't be able to. And the last thing I want is to start to see VRAM issues when I'm not in a position to upgrade. It will drive me insane. I do run 1440p though. But if I remember correctly, I was seeing VRAM i
