Great results that will get better with updates and drivers.

AIB 3090 done deal for me.

CaptainHenry91639d ago (Edited 39d ago )

You better have a good cooling solution for that 3090 and the entire motherboard. I'm going with the 3080. All I need is native 4K 60fps

camel_toad39d ago

I thought I had read that the 30x would actually be cooler than the 20x because of the new cooling system. Figment of my imagination?

medman39d ago (Edited 39d ago )

Rog Strix 3090 most likely...not sure where the overclock will be for that, probably in the 2-2.1 ghz range. Cooling should be fine, asus does a good job on their cards. x570 aorus xtreme motherboard with aio cooler for cpu. All good. Are you getting the founders edition 3080 or aib card? I like the value of the 3080, but I'm trying to push 4k 120, whether dlss or no, game dependent, on an oled.

CaptainHenry91639d ago (Edited 39d ago )

I'm going with either Evga, MSI, or Asus. I never get the founders edition because most of the time they only have one fan built in it.


35 TFLOPS FTW :D That's on another level of next gen ^_^

Tech539d ago

no doubt these new cards have plenty of power.
now we just have to see new games designed for the new architecture.

ABizzel139d ago

Different architectures and NVIDIA trickery. 35TFLOP number is useless.

nyu139d ago (Edited 39d ago )

It's a bit misleading. That number comes from some very specific stuff (FP32 performance or something).

TFLOP comparisons just became very pointless when comparing across generations like this. it's not 3 times more powerful than X Series X (12 TFLOPS) at game performance. The 3070 has 20 TFLOPs, but is still about as powerful as 2080ti (14.5 TFLOPs)

The Ampere TFLOP is something like 33% less powerful than a turing TFLOP in terms of performance if we actually compare.

I was mixing up between a 3080 and 3090 AIB. Wish we had something inbetween. 3090 is beast but unless going gaming 8k or rendering it will most likely go largely underutilized.

I'll be sticking to my Nitro+ 5700xt and using Trixx boost @ 80% + RIS to hit upscaled 4K60, OC at 2070mhz core 1820mhz vram. Ryzen 3100 is enough to run all games. I'm using a 65" Sony HDR10 4K60 panel, so no need to get an RTX3080 after all. I was thinking of upgrading, but aside from Control, Cyberpunk and RDR2, everything runs 60fps high/ultra, undistinguishable from native 4K unless you do 200% zooming. If you have 4K120hz panel, RTX3080 OC makes sense with a Zen 3 10core/20 CPU.

The real benchmarks showing up next week will be awesome to see. This is clearly a winner. The 2080 series wasn't, especially if you own a 1080Ti like I do. This IS worth upgrading my 1080Ti for, however I will probably wait a bit as the 1080Ti still runs everything awesome for me.

anubusgold39d ago

I have a 1080 regular and i was getting 90 to 120 fps in games at 1440P thats why i didnt buy the 2000 series didnt need ray tracing yet now is the time to upgrade. I hope i get me a 3080 i have the money in the bank waiting.

Mithan38d ago

ya, RTX is JUST becoming useful IMO. I still think it will be 2022 before it takes off.

Sophisticated_Chap38d ago

I went with an RTX 2080 Super, but upgraded from a GTX 780.

Mithan38d ago

That was a huge upgrade.

XxINFERNUSxX39d ago (Edited 39d ago )

True next gen there, but wait for Gamers Nexus, Hardware Unboxed, and JayZTwoCents benchmarks and review. Those are the usual 3 I go to before making a purchase :D I usualy lean more on Steve from Gamers Nexus though. But TBH I rather have games all settings maxed all the time be at 1440p or 1080p with FPS in the 200s all the time. Games feel and play so much better with FPS that high, that anything lower feels meh. Even in the 100s is fine. Also theres a rumor that a RTX 3070 Super with 16GB of VRAM is coming, hmmm. I'm going with a 3080 or 3070 but at 1080p only, cause I like triple digit FPS in games :D

anubusgold39d ago

There is no waiting they will sell out in 5min the miners already said they are going to try and buy them up i hope they put up a one per person cap this time.

SegaGamer39d ago (Edited 39d ago )

They put a cap on the 2000 series cards, I think 2 was the most you could purchase, they were still sold out more often than not though. I eventually got my 2070 Super from Overclockers because I got fed up with waiting.

ssmilloy3639d ago

can we get cyberpunk free with purchase? or heck, the other way around.

TheRealTedCruz39d ago

I wouldn't be surprised if that would be something they'd consider.

The 3x series is already getting a lot of hype. Tie a release that big in and that could definitely push those still on the fence.

I haven't been excited like this since the 60p series.

warriorcase39d ago

Nvidia are currently partnered with Ubisoft for Watchdogs Legion, so I would expect that to be bundled on release.
