Nvidia RTX 3090 GPU leak points towards an eye-watering price tag - 24GB of GDDR6X?

Is a graphics card worth that much?



Read more about Nvidia's rumoured RTX 3090 graphics card and its pricing.

So is there no 3080Ti at all? Or is just no longer the flagship? Even though I guess it was never the true flagship but the flagship 'gaming card', which is just a silly thing to have to say.

24GB seems almost like a way of justifying the price, or to guarantee that Nvidia has the consumer card with the best of everything, incl memory capacity.

I have this really sneaky feeling that those selling their 2080Ti for £800 in order to get more power per performance are going to be sorely disappointed.

The way this launch is looking? you will pay for every extra frame you get. That has to leave the 3080 at what? a grand? £1100?

If older rumours are to be believed, Nvidia are worried about RDNA 2 and plan to construct a larger Ampere card, creating a potential RTX 3090 Ti.

It's hard to know what Nvidia are doing. TBH, if they do a "SUPER" series again, removing the Ti would be a good move. No more, it the RTX 2080 Super better than the RTX 2080 Ti nonsense.

Nvidia always hold onto something far more powerful just in case. Mostly because they can.

Sometimes they release it (780Ti to replace the 780 because of the AMD 290) but most times they don't even have to bother.

If they release it as a 3090 and it's not got 2 GPU's on it, it's gonna be a sad day.

NVIDIA will launch the 3090 and 3080 on 1st September according to some leaks.

IF AND ONLY IF RDNA2 AMD cards are better performers for the price than the 3080, it's possible that they will launch the 3080 super/ti to compete with that card for price. the same as they did with the Super line up with RTX 2000 series.

It's almost discarded that AMD RDNA 2 will be better than the 3090. Not even talking about the Titan

lets hope AMD has something good on hands, or NVIDIA will be able to charge as much as they want for performance.

2080Ti's already cost us Aussies $2100, I just did the conversion and that means we'll be paying the same price, hopefully

I don't think there is going to be a Titan. They are so much more expensive than the regular cards now and not much better. The moniker worked with the 700 Titan and the Black, but it started to get stupid after that given they were just gaming cards.

Whilst quite a few gamers I know bought the Black (I mean I had three at one point) after the Maxwell one and the enormous price hike people just flocked to the 1080Ti instead.

It seems to be like they have just renamed the cards. Usually they launch the 80 and 80Ti. 80 first, then the Ti. Sounds like they are going to do the 90 and 80 at thes same time now, and probably ditch the Titan series.

I mean seriously, I paid £1800 for a GPU. There was no way I was going to push that to over 2 grand.

Making me laugh how loads of people on other forums are saying don't buy a 2070s for £400. Like Nvidia are going to come along and sell them a card for that much that performs like it does. Especially when the cooler costs them $100.

I think it will be ages and ages before we see anything with 3 on it costing less than £800. They will hold off for ages to make sure all of their stock sells first.
