Considering these were $400 used a couple years ago, meh. But still, not a bad way to go. For the money, will beat the $400 2060 Super no contest.
2070 right? That's what bothers me about Nvidia. They release the 2070 and 2080 and then a year later here's the Supers which is what you really should have gotten at the beginning. The Super series is all the proof you need for Nvidia just sandbagging lol.Yea, that's insane. This could be my last Nvidia card.
Sure it's top dog, but its basically 15-30% more performance over 2080 Ti for 15-30% more power draw? That's not impressive from a technical/architectural level. Also means higher electricity costs over time, and heat the hell out of your room.I mean I only read one but it was pretty damn impressive?!?!
Well I don't think efficiency should be left behind when designing new and better chips. Hell the 3080's and 3090's from the AIB's are unstable, they had to back off the clocks they shipped with with a driver update and they are spiking to 500W...ridiculous. That's not a gen on gen improvement architecturally, really. Kepler, Maxwell, Pascall (700, 900, 10 series respectively) show that you can have efficient gen on gen improvements that perform. Also outside of Control and Doom Eternal, RTX improvements are not really all that. As far as I am concerned, Ampere is just like Fermi 1.0 (GTX 480) and I am sure we will see an Ampere refresh 6 months from now just like Fermi did (GTX 580). 3080 and 3090 seems like Nvidia rushed to be first to market on next gen and cranked these things balls to the wall. I'm sure them being on Samsung 8nm is also part of the problem. That said, TSMC 7nm is tapped, so guess there wasn't really a choice, but despite the name 8nm is just a refinement of their 10nm process.I mean... power draw? I don't give a **** about power draw. You live in CO, I live in OH.... don't mind if my rig can heat up my space a bit. and we're only talking pennies here.
Interesting prediction...Think they’ll do a “Super” iteration that might be more efficient? What about a 3090ti? Possible?I am sure we will see an Ampere refresh 6 months from now just like Fermi did (GTX 580).
Thanks! I doubt we'll see a 3090 Ti or proper Titan card while they are on Samsung 8nm silicon. I believe the power reqs are why we have a 3090 instead of an Ampere Titan. For $1500, the 3090 is still not a fully unlocked GA102 chip so they only called it "Titan class".Interesting prediction...Think they’ll do a “Super” iteration that might be more efficient? What about a 3090ti? Possible?
Great build btw, looking forward to see your next one!
Thanks man!Call of Duty, Battlefield 5, Dying Light 2, Tomb Raider...
I WANT MY RTX!
That case is gorgeous bro. OMG. LOVE IT.
7 Days to Die mostly.So what are we playing?
UT still and always
MP right now. Having fun with it. Hard server.Damn, still? Do you play MP or single?
Zen 3 CPU's announcement will be 10/8 and Big Navi (RDNA2) will be 10/28 (presumably the 6900 XT but not sure on naming scheme yet). Likely a November launch, but not sure.It's a fun time for PC Hardware now, we've got the recent RTX launch and soon we should be seeing new CPUs and GPUs from AMD right?
Yeah, most people just call it "Big" Navi as they never did a high-end release for Navi (RDNA) which top card currently is the mid-range 40 CU 5700 XT. Big Navi reportedly will be an 80 CU card with some leaks suggesting a higher than 50% perf/watt uplift for RDNA2 from RDNA on a refined TSMC 7nm process node, so should theoretically compete with Nvidia's high-end Ampere. Not sure which rumors to believe at the moment. Some say close to the 3080, but not topping it. Others are saying AMD is not impressed with Ampere so maybe they'll kill it? Who knows. Considering the hype that surrounded previous releases like Vega 56/64 that ended up being total duds, guess we'll see. I am weary of the leaks/hype.Yea, they just announced a new mid ranger 2 weeks ago and there's something in the pipe that Colorado referenced as Navi above and I think ....GoogleGoogleGoogle... /confirm AMD is calling it RDNA2 should be announced pretty soon.
No apparently the card announced 2 weeks ago IS the flagship competitor.
AMD's chief architect of gaming solutions took a buyer up on his $10 bet that AMD will have issues with its upcoming Radeon launch similar to those that plagued Nvidia and its RTX 3000 series launch.www.pcmag.com
