$1400 lmao go **** yourself
My entire rig cost $1400

U can buy the 3080, for $700, it's 40% faster than the current $1400 (streetprice) 2080Ti.

3090, King of GPU is $1499,   WHICH imho is very competitively priced.

//Perspective

Think about it, you can't even buy the Top Iphone for that much, And the Iphone is garbage compared to Mighty 3090.

3090 can play ray-traced games @ 8K (DLSS).

What can people do with an Iphone, go outside, and call people ? oh wait !
Maybe play 1080p games where it can barely hold 30fps before throttling after 20mins.

You're preachin' to the choir. I don't think anyone on Earth would say any Apple product is not drastically overpriced. I'm shocked they make a profit and people support them at all at all with their current pricing and death timers on their phones.

But that's a terrible comparison.

Well lets wait for second hand market 1000 series and 2000 to crash when these GPU's are massively accessible to everyone.

Maybe gonna try to snipe a 1080 TI or something if they crash.

You can haz 3070, which is around a 2080Ti for $500.

1080 Ti  for Retro gaming,    RTX is the FUTURE, the FUTURE IS HERE


Playable Raytracing is a major milestone,  Also DLSS, and Direct GPU-SSD IO. 

Though Tp4 still think 3080 is the best bang for buk,  and 3090 is honestly very reasonably priced.

I was just looking at used prices last night... yeah, some people are absolutely smoking crack.

1080's can be had under $300 again (finally!) and even 2080's are under $350. You may have to be patient and be ready to pounce on a good deal when you see it* but those deals are out there by people desperate to get what they can before the prices absolutely tank.

Anyhow,
I fully expect to see 1080s well under $200 by November but I think the best deals are going to be had on 2070s because they tend to get lost between the bulk of 60s and the hype of the 80s.



*Don't bother with auctions. Yes, occasionally you can score something really cheap on an auction, but in general at least one other person bidding knows what it's worth so there's no deal there. Another issue is people prone to gambling addiction treat Ebay like gambling and they hate to lose, so people will very often bid more than they simply could have gotten using Buy It Now. it's crazy, but they do it all the time. So they pay more and take longer to get it, just buy a good deal and be happy. If that's your jam, go for it, but I'd rather buy it and be done that spend a month trying to game the system and save $5.

well yeah SLI/CrossFire died for multiple reasons, 1 both were buggy and badly supported by games and 2 DX12 promised to replace them and support multi GPU at the API level and so they became redundant, although DX12 mutli-gpu is still plagued with the same issues as was SLI/CF so yeah pretty much dead until either nVidia or AMD needs it bad

It was easy to see it was a dead end from the start, it was proprietary and not supported by default. I was honestly surprised it lasted as long as it did, though to be fair it was dead long ago. I can probably count the number of SLI systems I've dealt with on one hand.

Had it been handled natively by the OS, Direct X, OpenGL or even the chipset sooner it may have stood a chance but Nvidia held too tightly too the reigns for entirely too long, making it a hassle for companies to properly support it. Nvidia also used it to drive a wedge between them and AMD and it put game developers and users right in the middle of it. I don't blame any company for refusing to implement it, it was more work and was anti-competition, and we've all seen how Nvidia acts when there's little competition.

If DX12 did help kill it, it only adds more fuel to the point that it was meant to be a wedge issue.

All of these cards consume way too much energy IMO. I'm perfectly happy with my passively cooled 1050ti with a peak consumption of 75 W. Wake me up when there's a capable RTX card with that TDP.

FE 3080 is reviewing well, though seems to be luck whether it has decent OC potential. Will be interested how the higher end AIB cards compare overall.

This appears to be total system power consumption ('without the display' per translation) not the card alone. Gamers Nexus has charts which look at GPU only power draw for both stock and OC'd and it peaked at 373W.

It doesn't matter, 320w power draw is still completely unacceptable. This isn't a "TI" or a Super or a flagship model.

Who knows how much power the Aftermarket cards are going to draw.

*Shrug* It is what it is. If one wants less power draw there's always the 3070 and perhaps AMD has something more conservative in that regard. Nvidia though does consider the 3080 their flagship as per their announcement. The 3090 OTOH is their Titan-class (the traditionally much higher priced and spec'd class above Ti).

The leaked model numbers show there's a 20GB 3080 on the horizon but that will be exclusive to AIBs and not coming from Nvidia so it's unclear what 'Super' or similar models apart from that will be released.

What i would find unacceptable is nVidia claims of 100% improvement where it seems to be about a 40% average... but it is now expected of them.

So we're looking at ~1.4x raytracing performance on 3080 vs 2080ti.

Given that statistic, I think 3090 is definitely warranted.

The 335watt thing,  well, it's not going into an SFF build that's for sure. Unless it's an SFF that's not really that smole, with a giant 800watt psu. HHAHAHA

well silverstone have you covered there :) it will be the cooling that is going to be a huge problem in a sff, one that cooler is huge and 2 it requires that your case do all the work of exhausting that hot air and that will not work that well in an sff maybe a crazy partner will make a blower one for those use cases

I wouldn't count on that.

It can fit an Ncase m1, however the front I/O would be sacrificed and heat could be an issue if all air but the Ncase usually struggles more with with the CPU heat than the GPU because you have two 120 or 140mm fans blowing directly up into the GPU but only a small 90mm for the cpu. However, if you custom water looped it, no problem, in fact it would work pretty good since the water block would be short allowing better airflow through the case than a normal card. There's a Lian-Li that's similar and now a Cooler Master (NR200), they might also do well, but both are a bit larger.

I do agree though, pretty much anything smaller is going to be a serious stretch, it's an oddity due to the way due to the layout. It's probably not going to work well in a Dancase or Ghost or any sandwich style regardless of size, there's just nowhere for the air to go in them and even on water they're a bit limited by air flow, but don't count them out, SFF people are crafty.

Meanwhile cpu's have been stagnated for about a decade. Sucks that we need to rely on the gpu's power to build a faster computer these days, I kinda miss the cpu race of the '90s but suppose it is more convenient to just replace one bit of hardware rather than an entire system. Someday cpu's will reliably be a stable 5Ghz and up. I think it's part of why we are getting these insane workhorse gpu's now, because there's nowhere else to shoulder the brunt on a modern system.

Honestly what we need is a new type of computer that is not restricted by the bottlenecks of current clockspeeds. I keep waiting for that announcement, and they MUST be working on it being aware of the hard line that limits technology growth of the current cpu design. I have a feeling that technology is being suppressed to lengthen the life of the ailing current cpu technology that isn't really improving at all anymore.

x86 just needs to die. We could advance so much further without the restrictions of x86, but it's ingrained too far into all of our tech so far. RISC could potentially get us somewhere new, but it's not enough.

On another note, I'm glad I kept my z170 oc formula. I'll be doing the bios mod to put a 9900k in and slap a 3070 in and be good for another 6 years. I'll probably snag a Sliger Cerberus to keep size down though.

I'm not sure how much faster they can go with current Intel and AMD designs, 5ghz, sure at some point, too much beyond that I'm less sure about. Higher speeds in them are FAAAAR too depending on die and trace size, you can only divide so many times before you reach zero. Sure you can eek it ever and ever closer down to an atom, but at some point reliability will also be an issue. When your voltages get that low and the traces become more and more fragile even the slightest power fluctuation would fry it. And that's only half the problem, you also have Moore's Law, each jump in performance requires far more computing power, because it multiplies. It's not 1,2,3,4,5 it's 1,2,4,8,16.  Like spinning drives, I think we're nearing the end of the line for copper on silicon, it's certainly peaked if nothing else.

ARM was where myself and many others put our hopes, however if Nvidia buys them then that hope is dead and it seems others are starting to realize that as well. We've all seen how nvvidia acts when it has no competition and ARM has almost none. There's a few here and there but nothing on that level, and you can forget it on desktop. Sure Nvidia will push it but they'll also push the price once it gains traction. I consider them one of the least trustworthy companies, right up there with Comcast and big oil, I never trust them to do the right thing.

The greatest jump right now is in going to be in software design or a whole new architecture. We're starting to see the cracks in software as it was all designed to offset slow hard drives, now the drives are fast and the tricks that allowed spinners to run well are coming back to haunt us. I'm not sure how hard it will be for Windows to deal with this but I know Linux has been working on it for a while.


Mr. Squishy, can that board supply enough power to a 10900k? I know the chips fit and it can run newer chips but I'm not sure it can handle such a massive jump in power.

Mmmm..... idk,,,,  3080 better choice 4 raytrace,   but def wait for the AMD announcement october.

Nvidia has some exclusive benefits like CUDA which if one even dabbles in neural network stuff and the project supports it is a huge perf acceleration.

(Besides that I know a lot just want a beefier GPU for Cyberpunk in Nov so for some it's important the release timelines on new cards :P)

x86 does have some advantages, for one its retro-compatibility and its cisc approach although power hungry for some task lends itself pretty well at everyday computing, and with nVidia buying ARM i do not think it is the future anymore as my expectation from nVidia is doing the same thing they did with their GPU, pack full or proprietary tech that they do not even sell to anyone else, and end up failing from lack of adoption (Gsync, SLI, PhysX...) so maybe Power can take the crown... i guess we will see how it goes

Only a 9900k, but yes the z170OCF absolutely has the VRM's for it. There were overclockers setting records with the OCF's with 9900k's until the EVGA DARK board came out.

TP4 is absolutely correct here, but I'm less of a gamer than I used to be. Sure, a 3080 would be better for games with rtx, but I mostly want more power for encoding  and rendering. A 3070 for me will still be a gigantic upgrade over my 1070ti for 1080p/144hz and VR gaming though. I'm hoping to pick up the rumored eye tracking version of the HP Reverb G2 if it ever comes out, 3070 will be stonks for that.

I phrased it wrong, VRM I have little doubt, I believe they repurposed a few pins to get more power to the chip, but we're talking Intel, so it's not a surprise.

See if you can buy cloud service for that, it's way faster, time/cost efficient to have your render done at the data center.

It doesn't make sense to wait 3 hrs for a render at home when the cloud can poof it out in 1 minute.

1080 TI's are already flirting with the $200 range on eBay the past week. I'll definitely snap one up if they dip much further.

meanwhile...

Tp4 also looking at 1080tis,    Great for video playback

it doesn't make sense to get a 1080ti  if you CAN fordz a 3070 or 3080. 

1080Ti  ONLY IF @ maximum p00r like Tp4.  Tp4 is really only using it for video playback.
