Rtx 3080 or a ps5 unsure what to do i already have a 2070 super which has been great lol
Non FE cards are going to fetch a high premium due to demand initially. If I can't get an FE order at £649 I will wait until next year I think.Ok looks like it is time to retire my amazing 1080ti which i must say has been immense, for a 3080, but will not be rushing into buying one in the next few weeks, will wait to see with is the best one to get.
Does anyone know of any reviewers that have done VR benchmarks?
Yes, not going to pay silly money for one at the moment, i do like the look of the FE cards though , that was my initial choice to be honest.Non FE cards are going to fetch a high premium due to demand initially. If I can't get an FE order at £649 I will wait until next year I think.
Exactly this !!!!Rtx 3080 or a ps5 unsure what to do i already have a 2070 super which has been great lol
Just say it is the new router!Exactly this !!!!
But then again, apart from Last of Us 2 and follow up to Horizon would I play it over the PC? Also, it's a lot easier to sneak a GPU in to the house without being spotted rather than something that looks like an over large router
Any links, vids on this?
Thanks! Bitwit has done a good test by downclocking a Ryzen 5 3600xt to give an idea of what performance and power draw would be for the Ryzen 5 3600 at 4.1GHz.Všichni, kdo netrpělivě čekali na příchod nové generace grafických karet Ampere společnosti NVIDIA se dnes dočkali. Dnes totiž skončilo embargo na poskytování informací kolem grafických karet GeForce RTX 3080 a tak vám dnes mohu konečně představit grafickou kartu NVIDIA RTX 3080 Founders Edition!www.gpureport.cz
This website dropped it down to 270w, at the loss of around 4.2%.

It's pretty obvious this was intended to be a 270w card, for whatever reason Nvidia decided to squeeze that tiny bit more out of it, not exactly sure it's worth it.
It can have a effect on cooling if the plate is thermally connected to the main board components but that is on a card by card basis as some are purely cosmetic, I just think they look crap with an exposed PCB also more prone to damage.So better to have one for aesthetics? It’s not a sign of a better cooler or build quality per say?
Who's disappointed ?Not sure why the disappointment - nVidia never promised a significant performance bump over the 2080Ti. People forget it's still at least 10-15% faster than the Ti at 60% the price. It should really be compared against the 2080 or even better the 1080 (where it is literally double the performance in just about everything).
I'd still want more power, so it's the 3090 for me (even though the performance-to-price ratio is terrible).
Sadly not - it's still a very small user base. The VR channels will certainly do reviews though. They aren't big enough to receive review units from nVidia though, so you'll have to wait till they get them via the standards channels.Does anyone know of any reviewers that have done VR benchmarks?
A back plate also helps to add rigidity to the board, preventing sagging. Given that the up-to 320W power draw will need a very substantial cooler to handle it, the board will have to handle a lot of weight. I would want a backplate if only for that reason.So better to have one for aesthetics? It’s not a sign of a better cooler or build quality per say?
*** was tempted to stay up to see if this happened but thought “nah no retailer would be stupid enough”.Update - Ebuyer have listed cards for sale and can head to checkout!
They are selling quick too - over 100 people on the Zotac trinity
I am not brave enough to go for it myself, I don't want £700 stuck in limbo for about a week if they cancel afterwards as then I won't have enough to rebuy at 2PM without dipping in my savings.
Edit - 00:25 - All now out of stock...
