Nvidia 3070/3080/3090 Releasing this Month!
« on: September 06, 2020, 12:46:54 pm »
Maybe not worth a news post but at least a discussion. These cards leap frog over previous generations in terms of performance while keeping the price relatively low.

3070 > 2080 Ti at $499
3080 = TWO TIMES a 2080 at $699
3090 has no comparison at $1499

This should make VR gaming much smoother. I'm personally going to upgrade from my 980 Ti to the 3080!

Yeah, I nabbed an RTX 2070 Super in June, so I'm a bit annoyed... may sell it in October and get a 3070, but may just upgrade a couple of other things instead.

Finally was able to order one (they're VERY hard to get right now). Should be here on Friday!

Ohhh very nice. Zero availability here but I got my son the 3060ti. Quite excited for him as he is really getting into games now.

Yup, it handles everything I throw at it! Playing VR super-sampled and Cyberpunk 2077 in ultra-wide at max settings!

Managed to get a founder's edition 3070 via SCAN in the UK. Signed up for telegram notifications. Ray Tracing is super nice, eh?
