do feel a bit bit mislead that this was gonna as badass a gaming card (shown with the 8k 60fps showcase) as it is a rendering card.



Although i do have the money to get a 3090, i cant rationalise the cost from a gaming standpoint


We all know there will be a 3080S/Ti at some point, but I get the feeling the 3080 might not be Nvidia's flagship as long as 3080 owners might have liked (a complete guess would be by march 21)



As a 1080ti owner, im in the market for an upgrade and I want to be ready to rock n roll with a 3000 card for Cyberpunk (availablilty pending), so from a selfish point, i dont want a 3080S/Ti "too" soon if i go 3080.
my "dilema" is should i get a 3090 as a "safeguard purchase" so i know it wont be surpassed? (or there will be less chance of seeing 3090S/Ti than a 3080S/Ti)?

Either buy a cheap 20 series card (if you can find someone desperate like I have) or wait and see what AMD have first.

Because you can bet your ass Nvidia have held something back for Justin.

I'd go for the 3080 or AMDs cards, I think it's best to just not worry if a card is iterated upon, new marginal upgrade cards coming out should only really be of concern to those who haven't upgraded for a while, at the end of the day they don't make your current card any slower, and the gains you'd get from an upgrade like these ones expected are going to be in the 4-8% range.

If you want a new GPU for Cyberpunk? Go for it imo, if you really like the game and smash it on launch you could end up putting more hours into gaming on your GPU in those few months than you spend on it for most of next year. The true value is in the experiences it gives you, personally. Those waiting 6 months *might*, maybe, get ~8% more for their money, but in your position, I assume playing the Cyberpunk storyline for the first time how it was meant to be played would be worth far more than that? idk, horses for courses.

I think even if you don't want to wait your going to have too for a bit, the 3080 is the sweet spot of the nvidia cards it'll be sold out for a while, so your at least see what amd has first.

I think for most of us looking forward to cyberpunk the experience in that game is key, me personally have been waiting for that game since they first announced they were developing it and that was a fair few years ago now.

Thou if you do decide to get a 3080 if you can't get the FE edition and want a card i don't feel you need to spend heavy on a top tier AIB to get decent performance out of it and you could save a small chunk by getting a more basic model

Agreed. Cyberpunk looks beautiful and is my primary reason/excuse to upgrade (the 1080ti is still a great card) and to enjoy higher frames in my other games.


I know the old addage "if you wait for the next thing, youll never buy anything"
i think i prefer to be in the situation of having a 3090 and when 3080S/Ti comes out with similar performance for £500 less over having a 3080 then seeing the 3080S/Ti come out a few months later, perform better for only 200quid more (obvs rough figures and time)
im not one of these guys that has to have the best and lastest stuff ( running a 1080ti and a 2700x here), but as an enthusiast, when i do upgrade, its a go big or go home type deal
i do hope im wrong and i will eat humble pie if it is the case, but i cant see AMD being able to compete, even less at top end, again happy to be proved wrong.

I wonder if the backplate from the 3090 will fit the 3080 Trio...

I've got the 3080 Trio on the way, not keen on the "enhanced plastic" backplate.

With your analogy with cars what card does the ford cortina driver get?

3070 matches a 2080 Ti not a 2080.

It won't match a 2080Ti.

^ Technically true, since in some workloads it will be better, in others it will be worse.

If I remember Gigabyte leaked photo, the 3070 sits between the 2080ti and the 2080S.

So for a 1080ti user or lower, its still a good deal providing it holds its MRRP. Otherwise, AMD are smiling and rubbing their hands!
