So the next gen is about to begin.
Yes waiting for the RTX 3080
Same, I have a launch 2070 which has been awesome but now I'm ready for the 3080 especially now more support is there for the RTX cards.
Me too. I have an RTX 2070 Super right now, so I'm hoping an RTX 3080 offers a nice, significant upgrade. Rumored performance numbers suggest that it will.
Yes! Now I can play the garbage port that is Horizon Zero Dawn and brute force my way through all the stutters and fps drops.
@Unspoken There's other great PC games out there. Not to mention you can play all of the Multiplatform games and Xbox games on PC
Actually next-gen begins when...next-gen games come out, not when more powerful hardware does. Remember back when the RTX cards launched and no games took advantage of its unique 'next-gen' features? Well, those next-gen experiences are still so few and far between. I thought we've already established that?
I have a gtx 1080 and it's still doing well for 3440x1440. I'm going to sit for one out until the 3080 ti or a 4080
Cool. So first models and prices and then we wait for third party benchmarks as always.
Guaranteed these next gen graphics cards wont be cheap.
I'm expecting the same price points we have seen in the past. $700 - $800 for 3080. $500 - $600 for 3070 and so on. The question comes down to will the performance match the price.
Razzer, Let's see what AMD is bringing to the table first and then talk price. If they manage to be somewhat competitive this time around then nVidia could reconsider their pricing - for the first time in a decade...
The new consoles will make it hard for nvidia ill wait and see.
Time to sell a kidney then, so i can atleast afford a 3070.
Your kidney only worth 5-600?
Yeah dream on if you think it's that price
Good, just waiting to hear the release date. My 1080Ti has served me well but it's starting to show it's age..
Same goes for my 1070. If this is like the Pascal of turing cards, this will be massive
The 1080Ti turned out to be a long term beast. Pascal was a great improvement over the already great Maxwell architecture. The life of Pascal cards was prolonged by the relatively small jump from Maxwell to Turing in rasterization. I'm still on the 970 which is definitely not ready for next gen games. The leaks are suggesting, that Nvidia and AMD will compete across all price ranges which will hopefully result in more affordable cards. What I'm curious to see is how they stack up in features and ray tracing performance. If rumors are to be believed the Ampere cards are supposed to be a big step up in ray tracing performance, which will finally make it a more usable feature. DLSS 2.0 is providing amazing results and I don't think that AMD can compete without a comparable featureset. With optimized rendering pipelines and AI upsampling, raw hardware specs are becoming less indicative of real world performance. With next-gen cards and consoles launching in the next 3 months, it's an exciting time for video games. The hardware baseline is about to get raised which will hopefully make high-end hardware much more useful (beyond high framerates and resolutions).
It's almost like the next series will be called 2100 instead of GODDAMN 3000! Stop saying 3000! 21 comes after 20!
So does 11 after 10
RTX is a new product line, which could be used against my argument honestly. But anyway. There was logic to it, Turing was not on previous roadmaps as it was an architecture being worked on alongside the product line for 10 years. They claim it would take another 10 years for non hardware accelerated gpus to achieve the raytracing performance of their Turing arch. Nvidia likes playing with numbers 21 years 21 days until the announcement, it's exactly what they did 2 years ago.
We don't know the official naming yet. It's possible that they'll go with 21xx, but I think 30xx is much more likely, because they've already went from 10xx in Pascal to 20xx (and 16xx) in Turing. From a marketing perspective 21xx might not seem like a big enough leap. I don't see a reason why they wouldn't simply go to 30xx. There is no point in overanalyzing the logic behind naming conventions. They are decided for marketing purposes only.
i predict the flagship will be 2k
You're tone deaf to the PC market. Stick to your closed platforms. It's easy, because they choose for you, and you don't have to deal with the daunting task of choice. Honestly dude; I know you're a blatant anti-PC troll, but you legitimately suck at being one.
Nah your just mad he's right. Truth hurts sometimes.
Where are all the pc guys who say there are no generations in pc???
Is there a point to be had here? Tech always improves. PC allows you to either make use of it, or you don't. Call it a "generation"; call it an "upgrade". It's just someone purchasing better tech. I've never seen this argument had, nor do I see the logic behind it, or your bringing it up. So, again, what even are you saying here? Why did it need to be said?
Ok even in this section “the next gen begins” so just because YOU don’t say it or YOU haven’t seen it doesn’t mean it’s not true. I have no car in this race I just see how ironic it is and no need to get so uptight my guy these are video games
@there Still haven't made a point; just continued on the narrative you seemingly can't expose, but continue to push. Me asking you to simply put context to a statement you made doesn't make me "uptight". It literally just means I'm asking for substance and context to a words you typed.
“ I've never seen this argument had, nor do I see the logic behind it, or your bringing it up.“ I literally counteracted what you said with what someone else said. Just because it’s not the answer you wanted doesn’t mean it’s not true. Also you explained it yourself so why should I beat a dead horse. Buying new tech = a generation jump. PS3 to PS4 i7 gen 7 to i7 gen 8 It doesn’t matter how big the jump there is one. You’re uptight because I constantly see you badgering people who don’t have the EXACT same view as you even if they still mostly agree with you. Relax it was a facetious statement
@there Seriously dude ... what's your point? Can you point me towards this army of PC gamers who you seem to think have this giant vendetta against identifying new tech as "generations"? This is a narrative you started. You say stupid s**t, then call people uptight for questioning your statements.
@tedcruz See now that I have shown you the “substance” you start going off on hyperbole about “vendettas” when I never even made that assumption. I gave you solid information which you decided to not reply to but instead try to keep talking about being “uptight” If that’s not uptight Idk what is lol. Have a good one chief
Hi. Yeah, I'm right here. Generations in components does not equate to a generation of PC. What "generation" of PC am I in if I have an RX 580 and a Ryzen 7 3700? Give me a single identifier that tells me what "generation" that PC is in. You can't. Generations are a console mentality and on PC, as a whole, they simply do not apply.
So if you have a certain set of components that can’t run games from year 2020 and on what would you call that if not a generational gap. Yes you can upgrade one or two components to make you have the ability to play those games but you would have to spend far more on components than a console in the span of 8 years. This is of course if you want the same fidelity.
You answered your own question and it had nothing to do with cost,now did it? You still did not answer my question. "What "generation" of PC am I in if I have an RX 580 and a Ryzen 7 3700? Give me a single identifier that tells me what "generation" that PC is in. " If you can't answer then stop trying to make up nonsense about cost which isnt the point at all.
You have PC 2, Just admit it./s
@Razzer That came out what last summer (Ryzen) so that’s pretty new...... Upgrading tech is upgrading tech which means it can do something the predecessor could not SO THAT MEANS there is a jump in tech capabilities which means a generation has been jumped. If that’s as simple as a device going from a 3700 to a 3800 to as big as a whole new rig. The reason it applies more with consoles is because they control more of the market and studios that want to make games for them. Look at horizon zero dawn the importance was on PS4 so that is the only reason we even have discussions around times like this. It’s because a new console is coming out. I have friends who were geeked when the 1080 came out just like people are now with PS5
Are you ok? You dont need these cards to play future games.
Lol I have a PS and Xbox.
And your question doesn’t apply to my situation lol
Are you just replying to yourself? Yeah you have a problem.
You can play any past software on any 2020 PC... by emulation, virtualization or directly under Windows 10/MacOS/Linux... generations in PC are like one every day or none. It depends on how you get up that morning.
Xbox now has backwards compatibility. But you just said it yourself It depends on the person and how they wake up. I mean the article literally says next gen but I’m in the wrong?
I think you're missing the point man. A "generation" in these terms is referred to a new console release like PS4 to PS5. This started a long time ago when a new console came out and wasn't guarenteed to play the games you used to have. With a console, you replace the entire device, even in mid-gen beefed up versions of the OG console. PC doesn't work like that. I have an RTX 2080 with an I7 8600k, my PC is beastly, but if I upgrade my CPU or GPU it is one component. It's not like new games won't launch without a rtx 3080 going forward, it just effects performance. Really, "generations" in gaming is a console thing to distinguish between the new tech console. I could make it the next 5 years with my current setup and play every game coming out even though I built this PC just over a year ago.
“ The reason it applies more with consoles is because they control more of the market and studios that want to make games for them. Look at horizon zero dawn the importance was on PS4 so that is the only reason we even have discussions around times like this. It’s because a new console is coming out. ” I had this as part of my argument as well. The only reason games don’t cater to pc is because the fan base isn’t as big for the games they make.
The real next gen begins, \o/ Time to upgrade o/
I'll stick to 1440p with a 2070 super for as long as i can get away with it
With the way a handful of games already run, I'd recommend sticking to 1440p (especially if a high refresh display) even if you got a 3070 or 3080 if you want to hold high minimums. Oh you're the guy i already had a conversation with, i only just noticed
In the meantime then get a decent SSD. The Kingston KC2000 NVMe PCIe SSD is a really good deal. Nearly matching the performance of the dominating Samsung 970 Pro but at a much lower price. https://www.pcworld.com/art...
i'm waiting on the super fast ssd's to become bigger and cheaper. i'll wait for a multiplatform game to demand it at a minimum before i go and buy one. I have the old style ssd that does 500mb read/write.
I've got a 2060 with an i5 that runs on s 1080p laptop, pretty much everything runs well over 60fps. No need to upgrade anytime soon.
i don't blame you 4k is overrated. if it wasn't being used to push new tv's and as a buzzword standard for next gen I'm pretty sure developers would go below 4k resolutions for optimal effects instead. Or maybe i'm just old and can settle for lower graphics in my old age idk.
Totally agree. If I had a choice between 4k with lower frame rates andlower effects or 1080p with higher frame rates and more effects I'll choose 1080p every day of the week.
1440p is the sweet spot actually.
1440p at 120 FPS is life.
I'm still riding the GTX 1080ti with an i5 Intel CPU on a 2k monitor and pushing 140 FPS on Gears 5. on MAX GRAPHICS Settings. You don't even need these new cards to push these current games at high levels, believe me. If you have the money, you'd be a dummy not to build yourself a gaming PC. Less than $2000 for my build back in 2018 and I have yet to need to upgrade. Consoles are seriously weak machines but understandable. This is true next gen :)
But the games still look fantastic for 'weak machines'. I enjoy my exclusives too much to invest in a PC I doubt I'd play it much. Ghost of Tsushima is amazing amd beautiful to look at on seriously old hardware.
Ghost of Tsushima is a beautiful game, this is true. Unfortunately, most games on consoles do not look or run like that game. I care about getting the best graphics and performance in the majority of games. I also care about backwards compatibility, the ability to use mods, free online gaming, the freedom to customize settings to your preference and all the other advantages the PC offers.
Plus who needs ps4 exclusive we have stupid fun sword games for pc like MORDHAU AND DIVINITY.
Cant wait. Been holding off of the 2080ti for the 3080ti
Bring on the 3080ti and with Cyberpunk 2077 on the Horizon its just icing on the cake😋Get ready Samurai 💪🏻💪 27995;
Recently sold my 1080ti to my friend and bought a 2070 Super that was on sale plus I had change left over. I'll be watching watching very closely. As well as what AMD have in store. I doubt I'll be getting another gpu this year as I have a PS5 to buy. But early next year I look forward GPU shopping.
Im just gonna hold onto this 1080ti and see what it can do when those custom SSD's that the PS5 runs on are finally available for PC. Seems like the standard Sony set with the SSD is more of the next-gen game-changer than GPU.
We have yet to see how much of a difference its SSD and system bandwidth really makes in the majority of games.
SSD difference will take time to show up. Initially first-party devs will showcase the 1st-generation of SSD-centered games. Then third parties will follow but won't be able to showcase that much improvement initially since multi-plat differences. Then on the second round of 1st party games is when the gamers are gonna get flabbergasted. : o
In the meantime you can get a decent SSD. The Kingston KC2000 NVMe PCIe SSD is a really good deal. Nearly matching the performance of the dominating Samsung 970 Pro but at a much lower price. https://www.pcworld.com/art...
