    Don't think it'll be the final countdown.. more like the first one. We'll really want to know perf vs Navi, and more importantly, price - what's the bet we don't get to see the latter at the unveiling..

    Re: Nvidia GeForce Ampere graphics card countdown begins – 21 days

    Only a month to go

    Just hoping the jump in performance from the RTX2080 (non super) is big enough. Not remotely interested in 4k, but 3440x1440 performance is key for me...whilst I can happily push 60-90fps stable in Warzone and Horizon Zero Dawn, it's not quite enough and i feel those games should be running closer to 150fps really, particularly warzone.

    That would be enough for me to make the jump really. Icing on the cake would be a jump in RTX performance (or rather, the minimising of it's impact!) for the same reason. It would be nice to have it enabled for multiplayer games too rather than reserving it for single player only.

    Will be watching with interest....

    "Nvidia is teasing a media / computing release as 'explosive' as that"

    I've a fancy it's going to be exactly what everyone thinks it is, 30 - 40 % increase in performance. Priced exactly like everyone knows it will, but they'll want us to believe it is "as 'explosive' as that"

    It'll be a new card, over priced, but with improved lighting tech, which will only be "good" because the first iteration was so bad (in that in order to use it, you had to play a slideshow)

    Not at all true, typically only see a 10% performance hit for RTX in most games, maybe 20% at a push - but certainly no-where near slide show performance. I only don't have it on for MP games as every frame counts..but for single player games? I always leave it enabled for the eye candy.

    Very much doubt it will be more than 30% performance bump...my guess is 20%-25%. and 30%-40% more expensive. They have no incentive to push the performance limits whatsoever. Last few years they've been known for milking the customers as much as they can.

    Re: Nvidia GeForce Ampere graphics card countdown begins – 21 days

    An RX5600XT/RTX2060 is under £300 now,and a GTX1080TI is around 20~30% faster than both of those. If a mainstream sub £300 Ampere/RDNA2 GPU can't at least match or exceed a GTX1080TI,then it will be a bit disappointing.

    So who are they gonna sell them to... no one has any money after Covid-19... also I think we still am stuck on the myth of 4K on a single card that runs at 70FPS min any game

    21 days to detox enough to to increase the value of a spare kidney to sell...

    ...or I just won't buy, I would call it a protest but they won't notice as there seems to be enough willing to pay whatever they ask.

    Surely they can't make the performance per pound even worse than the 2000 series? I'd like to think people wouldn't buy...at least this time big navi should be a comparable alternative if expectations of it matching a 2080/2080ti are true.

    They normalised the 1000 quid graphics card, so I'm really curious how they are going to shaft us this time. I hope they at least include glitter to make it pretty.

    puts on evil hat...they're no longer going to sell us a card, you now need to rent the card for £100 per month and if you don't pay the drivers stop working....

    Ironically if the price was about £25-50 a month some might be tempted, especially those that change things often enough.....

    Give it time and I'm expecting a subscription model for pc parts lol

    Gotta be honest, current GPU prices are actually not bad. It's just the RTX 2080 and 2080 TI that are extremely expensive because of Ray-tracing.

    Much like 3D, SLI, VR, PhysX and other Nvidia crap in between, RTX will die off in the next generation. How do I know RTX will die off? PC games follow console tech, and since console tech doesn't have RTX, very few games will have proper RTX implementation, which makes it not worth the investment.

    I for one am waiting on the new mid-high ranger (RTX 3700-3800 and RX6700 XT) so I can switch to 1440p 144hz.

    Re: Nvidia GeForce Ampere graphics card countdown begins – 21 days

    Time for some predictions again!

    3080Ti = $1199 MRRP @ 40- 45% perf. increase over 2080Ti, raw compute, and 100% increase with full raytracing options enabled.
    3080 = $849 MRRP @ 40- 45% perf. increase over 2080, in raw compute, and 100% increase with full raytracing options enabled. ~ 10% above 2080 Ti without raytracing
    3070 = $649 MRRP @ 35-40% perf. increase over 2070 in raw compute, and 50-100% increase with full raytracing options enabled.
    3060 = $449 MRRP @ 35-40% perf. increase over 2060 in raw compute, and 50-100% increase with full raytracing options enabled.

    I think they're going to try and open up the performance range slightly, as the differences between 2060, and 2080 were relatively minor last gen, given their price differences. $400 for the RTX2060 vs $700 for the RTX2080, which equates to a 75% price increase for 30% performance bump...
