Apples to apples, it is good. But it's not exactly worth switching if you have a 2080 or even a 2080 Ti. Unless you're one of those people who just wants to have the latest and greatest.

It's pants as far as I am concerned.

After watching a few reviews I found the important one. You know? the one running an AMD CPU like 80% of his viewers asked him to do. I then found the only game in the 14 he tested that I actually have and play, and.



And the total over 14 games was 21%.



So to me? it's a bust. I can only assume that once again Adored TV was correct. What I mean by that is -

Jen - Samsung 8nm is total crap but it's nice and cheap at $25 per die less. Let's double down on the cuda cores !

The only issue with that of course is that at resolutions lower than 4k that stupid amount of CUDA cores struggle to find anything to do, so sit idle (see also, 1440p results).

Now let's forget that I have a very shiny and ludicrously expensive 2080Ti for a moment and concentrate on the one I just paid £490 for with a Barrow block on. I will bench that ASAP.

Friendly reminder, AIB stands for ad in board. So technically the founders edition is an AIB. If you say it in a video, it might be a bit confusing for people who are not familiar with the forum (miss)use of the term for board partner cards. Sorry for my OCD.

Noice review love the return to mental details and overly long conclutions, fair to say my 1080Ti will soon be retired and a tasty 3080 in it's place..... unless Big Navi proves itself. I love these GPU waiting games.

rumours arising that nvidia might enter the CPU market. Interesting times ahead. Clearly the mobile market is the main target, but imagine the desktop segment being attacked

Well that made comparisons easy, having the same 2070 OC in my system and mostly it doubles my fps on 1440 and for £649 that doesn't seem a bad deal, but looking I have a feeling it's going to be nearer £900 for aib

Wait for AMD, "Leaks" had it being around 20-30% faster than a 2080 Ti which would put it on par with a 3080, This could turn into a price war if true.

You need to remember that a large factor in why the 3080 is "so fast" is the G6x. Take that away? yeah we will see with the 3070.

TBH if AMD even have a competitor to the 3070 they are laughing, as that is the card that will light up sales.

The higher you go the more niche it becomes. 1% will own a 3090.

I'm in no rush Crusader kings 3 doesn't push my pc at all , and I'm considering there will probably be a 3080ti at some point

I don't think there will be a price war. At all.

Fact is Nvidia used Samsung, which instead of $70 odd per die like the 2080Ti on TSMC cost $25 less. Per die.

They also spent tons of money on their FE coolers to set up a perfect bait and switch. IE - try getting one for that price. There could be ten for all we know.

AMD on the other hand used TSMC. Which means that their prices will be the same as Nvidia's. Unless of course they feel like committing financial suicide, which they won't.

They should be much better behaved all around. Good gaming figures, lower power consumption and less heat etc. That comes at a cost mate.
