NVIDIA GeForce 30-series: come for the lack of order updates and stock, stay for the fan discussion

I have a pretty high spec pc, but am using a 1080ti. I have been tempted to get a series 3000 card but i must admit if the 3080 only has 10gb it's a little dissapointing. I know it's not a massive difference being on 1GB but still.

 

3090 probably be way too expensive for me to consider it. Was hoping i'd flog my GTX 1080ti for a decent amount to make the 3000 card seem a bit more affordable.

I don't think I'm going to be upgrading at the moment, I'm more likely to boot out my 7700k when the new Ryzen processors surface, but I'm really keen to know what nvidia do with this. There's current rumblings that the prices aren't going to be as extreme as you'd think, but I can't bring myself to believe it. I think my girlfriend is more likely to upgrade at this point a she's got a 1080ti, and will want to be running Cyberpunk 2077 with all the whizbangs.

 

I have the tech upgrade bug for sure at the moment, but considering my most anticipated game at the moment is Inscryption, that I'm only at 1440p and already have 2080ti, I suspect I'll hold out for the next round unless we see something truly bonkers this evening. Obviously I'll have caved this time tomorrow and ordered the biggest thing they've got on offer and the PSU to make it go. You know how it is.

I stepped out of the PC upgrade game simply due to costs, but goddamn if I don't still love reading about monster graphics cards and how people are upgrading even though it's ridiculous because it's ridiculous :wub:

 

And everyone is so friendly here, nobody saying someone else is stupid for choosing a different brand cooler or something.

I'm considering getting a laptop and was holding off until this announcement to see if it impacts the cost of the 2000 series cards (my current system is from 2012 or so). Is this likely to affect the price of the older cards at all or will it absolutely not matter? If I remember when I looked into this when RTX cards were announced it was a while before the laptop versions came about anyway.

From memory, the impact on price isn't worth it as the next card down in the new range is usually cheaper and better; e.g. a 1060 was better than a 970 by a smidge, used less power and was cheaper. 

 

Happy to be corrected if I'm wrong on this though!

 

Basically, it's probably gonna be worth getting a 3070 over a 2080 no matter what. 

 

Also, did 11- and 12- series cards get skipped or something?

Yeah I think it's weird too.  Should have gone from 9xx, 10xx, 11xx to 12xx. But they've gone 9xx, 10xx, 20xx to 30xx

 

Consumers only realise it's new if the first digit changes I suppose

In terms of the shroud I don’t really care, as I plan to strip all that off and waterblock that mofo. In for a penny...

Yeah, that's something my Zotac would appreciate. Like I say the OC is fantastic due to the chips being a lottery win in the binning process but the two fan shroud doesn't allow them to be pushed to their max potential. I imagine anyway. A water-block would essentially push the card to god tier.

 

Shame I won't be doing that as it's getting made redundant as my main machine once I get the 3xxxTi equivalent. I say I won't be plumping for the 90 but in the unlikely event of there being no Ti forthcoming I'll probably buckle. See what the new year brings or if the standard 80's from 3rd parties with 20GB completely crush my Ti. I know they'll beat it but if they crush it then the wait for a Ti wouldn't be necessary and I'll happily game on an 3080 for a few years.

 

I guess we'll know how much poorer we're going to be imminently.

I haven't read anything about the naming but I'd imagine the jump was to do with differentiating the 2xxx from previous none RTX capable cards. Like we've jumped to a whole other level. Not that it is an actual whole other level for rasterization but certainly a whole new ball game in chip design with the Tensor cores.

 

Probably nothing to do with it though, knowing my hit rate of knowledge.

Except those with Palit gpu's smell a bit.

 

*Looks in PC and sees Palit gpu*

Why does this have to be framed as "slaying" consoles, can't we just enjoy our thing without having to shit on other people's things? Particularly seeing as so many of us flit between the two.

 

Make no mistake this is a war.

At least no-one has referred to their PC as a 'rig' yet.
