Maybe lower than that. Honestly, my current GPU is a 1070ti I think I'll wait a bit to upgrade but atleast I'm future proofing a bit.

You can check the PSU tier list here. Just take one from tier A if you want to go with 3080 or better. Take at least 700W for 3080 or 3090.

You really need to make up your mind....

 

If it's a 3090 or 3080 you can't cheap out on a PSU PERIOD.... And 750 or better yet 850W.

 

Those things are no joke with the transient power spikes.

 

You will need something from Tier A in the list here:

Thank you for the advice, both of you! Unfortunately most units on the A tier are either overpriced here or not available. Maybe the Gigabyte ones fit??? How about the Segotep, Inwin, Raidmax, and Apexgaming ones?

Like I said, TIER A....

 

NOTHING below that.

 

The 3080's and 3090's have been shutting down PSUs that can't handle the transient power spikes.

 

There is a whole thread just on that over on the EVGA forums. Over 9 pages long so far...

You can always look on the used market aswell. I just got myself a Corsair AX860W for only 75€. That PSU cost about 200€ when it was new :D

 

edit: Also... If you can afford a 3080 or even 3090, you should not have a problem paying 150-200USD on a good PSU ;)

Hm... How about for the 2000 series then? Like a high end one so I can wait out till they iron out those power issues on the 3000 series. Surely their prices would be reduced to competitive values over time.

Kinda risky. Used PSUs here are mostly sold with hidden defects, kinda sad.

It's not like they will have a choice really... ;)

 

IF they cheap out and it shuts down they will have to spend it anyway.

Like the others said, don't cheap out on a PSU. You'll regret it otherwise. When your PSU goes down, it can take the whole system (or even your house) with it. Get a good unit.

 

700W+ Tier A

 

Also, a good PSU can last you 10+ years, so think again if 50$ more will be worth it when you think about your use time. For example the Corsair RMx series has 10 years warranty.

This is not a driver problem. This is just how the Ampere architecture behaves. It probably even needs these power spikes for some reason. Otherwise they wouldn't be there. Unwanted power spikes can damage GPUs, so imo if they would be unwanted, NVIDIA would have fixed these long ago.

There are no power issues with the cards. ;)

 

They are just THAT powerful and do draw a lot of power.

 

It's the PSUs that are the issue....

 

The 2080Ti's are the same deal here... Same story... High power draw. The 3080's draw more though.

I actually doubt that this can be fixed with drivers.

Just a side note, if you have a decent PSU it's not even a problem. My Rmx 650W handles my 3080 without any problems. Never saw a crash and i can confirm the GPU is working to it's full potential.

What they do, the same with the 2080Ti is the GPU goes from nothing to 100% in milliseconds. And with a very large power draw well over max. So a 350W card could spike to 400W for a few milliseconds.

 

Some PSUs, especially the cheaper ones just can't handle it.

 

Those are the transient power spikes.

Depends on the actual card you have. ;)

 

My gaming load is more than 650W.... From the PSU to the system, not from the wall.

 

My 3080 is a 450W card though. 3x 8 Pin card.
