Mind you probably get a decent price for your 2080 ...
Probably but still running 1440p/60 so not sure I need to bother. Bought it in prep for vr/index but still no sales of that here and I've not found a monitor I want to replace the u2711 that I can sensibly afford.

I'm still rocking a 4790k and 1080Ti, and whilst it does a good job there's alot of games that it can't get near to max on my 1440p Ultrawide, I play Warhammer Total War and it averages around 60-70fps @ high/ultra settings, and with Ray Traced Cyberpunk around the corner I think I'm going to have to talk myself into upgrading with some man maths.

Although my system is probably now worth peanuts.

I'm currently rocking a 2060 so the 3070 is really looking attractive. 2080ti performance for £470ish? Looking like a no brainer to me

Hopefully this gives AMD the hurry up to get their next gen out now.

Either AMD has some next level st ready to go or their gpu business is in real trouble.

Missed a generation.
Rocking a 980ti in my desktop gaming machine and a std 1080 In my VR/Sim machine. The boy wonder wants a gaming pc so I can see a string of upgrades happening.

Yeah it doesn’t look good. Even without this announcement, their best GPU isn’t really a worthwhile upgrade from my vega 56. They need to make a big step (as ever with AMD).

You have to wonder about those price points (3070 / 3080) and whether it's in anticipation of AMD's next gen / trying to head them off.

AMD are supposed to be announcing something next month. Question is, will it be worth the wait? If recent history is anything to go by, I suspect it won't be.

I'm still running a AMD 290x on a trusty i7-4770K (all flagship back in 2013), and it's starting to struggle with the newer games (although only running the games through a 1080p monitor).

Seems like now is a good time to upgrade not only the GPU, but everything else too!
Hopefully the new rig will be good for at least another 7 years.

3090 prices already up.

I've only just begun to find the limits of my 1080ti with Microsoft flight simulator.

Am waiting to see how demanding the next round of vr hardware is before pondering a change.

Thanks Nvidia

My lad has a 2070 super in his machine, 6 months old maybe.

And after watching their video tonight, he's decided its st and has to have a 3070 instead.



He best get saving then, cos i'm not buying it for him !

Need to keep an eye on benchmarks, got a 2070 super and it runs any game I’ve got in ultra at 1440p, and runs VR extremely well too so I’m struggling to find the urge to upgrade. Doubt I’ll ever go 4K, even my TV isn’t.

At the moment it seems to be something for people who like massive FPS scores, however when the next gen VR headsets come out I probably have to rethink.

If he thinks it’s that st, I’ll take it off him!

Well I was thinking of taking the time this year to do a first PC build and I'm glad I waited...I think the 3070 is the sweet spot looking at it...I'm not sure if I'd even use that to it's full potential never mind the 3080!

Given the fan design and 12pin power socket, does it make it difficult to run two 3080/3090 cards on the same motherboard?

Looks like only the 3090 will be capable of sli.

Haha they look huge! I am still tempted, just because it's new and they might well be in short supply quickly.

I'm a sucker for new components

Have you played Control ? It's a great game that when played with Ray Tracing is night and day it really makes a huge difference. Like you i'm playing at 1440 but my 2070 struggles with it on... DLSS certainly helps but i'm hoping the 3080 will give that extra horsepower...
