    Re: Nvidia GeForce RTX 30 partner graphics card highlights

    Pretty sure I'm going to get myself an RTX3080 launch day, so long as the foudner's edition comes in at £649. Never paid so much for a GPU before, but it seems like pricing will hold well, at least until AMD launches RDNA2 and we can see what that brings, even if it can best it on perf/£ I can't see it getting outright performance much beyond what the RTX3080 is purporting to achieve. Digital Foundry's video showing relative performance to a RTX2080 gives me confidence the number of + 80% performance jump are generally correct though.

    I can't see launch day being so cheap to be fair. Plenty of people saying availability is going to be truly horrendous and they have been pretty much on the money with the other stuff they have revealed

    Should be OK direct from Nvidia I'd have thought, and I'd take that one over an AIP for sure.

    We don't know what yields are like, true, but seems like the 3080 can be made from chips with a lot of defects given the specs compared to the 3090 which is the same die.

    Re: Nvidia GeForce RTX 30 partner graphics card highlights

    Aye I agree with both above. Saying it will be £649 and actually getting one ON LAUNCH DAY for £649 is different. I am hearing that availability will be poor - yup it should be £649 but we shall see if you can buy one on launch day. Pre-order maybe....

    Re: Nvidia GeForce RTX 30 partner graphics card highlights

    I am very interested in the 3090, but not at the price, if I can get close to double performance on one card, that has 2 GPUS?... I don't get it... does it have 1 or 2 GPUs? the XX90 is very very missleading in my head.

    Why don't you just wait and see what AMD has to offer? Lisa Su said RDNA2 GPUs were going to be out before the consoles,and the consoles are out in November. Don't you think Nvidia acting like this and already releasing an RTX3070TI 16GB is indicative they are worried? Also,DF said they couldn't choose the scenes,etc they tested so maybe you should see what reviewers say.

    Nvidia like AMD is always going to push best case scenarios,when they allow the press to look at their hardware. It would be a marketing failure if they didn't.

    Re: Nvidia GeForce RTX 30 partner graphics card highlights

    3090 is one GPU

    CAT you're right of course, but my thoughts are, given the hype the initial shipment is going to be snapped up pretty fast. Let's be honest I'd be able to get my money back onit, if I left it in brand new condition, and just waited for the reviews before opening. Nvidia has a brand premium these days and the latest product will alwaus have someone willing to buy if stock is limited. Anything below expected 3080* performance just isn't worth the investment. This is potentially my card for the next 2 to 3 years minimum, hopefully.

    * corrected

    Re: Nvidia GeForce RTX 30 partner graphics card highlights

    Table at the end is good, a roundup of all of them, including slot size would be handy. 2.7 slot, rubbish, it's 3. Anything over 2 means the next slot is out of use.

    Re: Nvidia GeForce RTX 30 partner graphics card highlights

    The 3080 well in Denmark it will probably be a £ 1000 card, due to the amped taxes ASO over here.
    Even the 3070 will be at a price range i see no reason to go for, not least now where my GPU see the most work when i occasionally process a little 4K/60 video,,,,, and thats rare.

    I still think it is priced too much, and that they are selling on a 4K market that is still next to not existing in proper ways.

    Re: Nvidia GeForce RTX 30 partner graphics card highlights

    Even if they're cherry picked specs, it beat my expectations to be honest. I can't tell if the prices seem good because, as some speculate, they're worried about AMD or just because we got so used to how bad value the 2xxx series was.

    Common sense usually says waiting before buying but with the risk of becoming out of stock and how previously pascal held their price for so long, this seems like a good buy even before AMD's big navi comes out (but obviously wait for further benchmarks etc.).

    Pascal really only held its price because people didn't think Turing was worth the money for the performance, IIRC Nvidia said sales of Turing where lower than expected in an earning call, essentially people were forgoing mid or upper-mid range 20 series cards for upper-mid or top end 10 series cards.

    I think Nvidia over estimated what 'worth' customers put on RTX with the 20 series and they've priced the 30's more inline with how RTX cards should've been when they launched, the 30 series should sell pretty well and help with the adoption of RTX (the more RTX the better for Nvidia due to it being exclusive to their cards). Question is if this is all to late what with AMD and the game consoles launching soon, can they get enough people to invest in RTX to make it the standard or go to raytracing solution, personally i doubt it.

    I agree - there's nothing ray-tracing wise in RTX that isn't also covered by DX12 Ultimate/12_2. There may be a few devs who coded for RTX before that came along but no point doing that any more.
