  1. Wow! I get busy and don’t visit the board in a few months and go figure, something I posted about long ago has become relevant again! I ended up very luckily getting an EVGA 3080 XC3 Ultra from Best Buy in November. I immediately undervolted it to 1860mhz at 850mv, which helped with power consumption and temps in general, but remained suspicious of the potential VRAM temps. With this issue still on my mind I started checking the temps with HWInfo64 as soon as it was enabled and sure enough, they went as high as 104* under intense load! While this may be “okay” by design I was not t
  2. I went from a 1070 Ti to a 1080 Ti for 1440p/144hz and think it was totally worth it, if you have a plain 1070 I would go for it.
  3. You are asking about a technology that is not even being shared with developers for another year. Nobody knows for sure yet.
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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 be
  8. 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
  9. Tomorrow is the announcement, launch is TBD. If we’re lucky, launch will be in early November with Zen 3.
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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!!!)
  14. 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
