    I dont think they should charge the same as 3080's for the AIB models.. I just dont think its quite as "worth" it. I think $1099 STarting point would be reasonable, Maybe $1199 for the Overclocked XT models like the Gaming X Trio or the Sapphire nitro. If the prices start to get into 3080 territory like $1379, Ill just wait and buy a 3080.

    I guess all this talk about DXR RTX whatever you call it is to base your decision on the card. We are wanting to see 6800XT to compete with both rasterisation AND raytracing feature. I don't care for DLSS just as much as Gsync, freesync works fine, DLSS locked to games development so no need to worry. However ray tracing is important as we are expecting this in the next few year and buying a 6800xt to replace 1080ti, I don't want to replace GPU again for 2 years.

    No need to worry. The Unreal 5 engine tech demo runs at 4k@30Hz on 36 CU's. Thats with realtime global illumination and per pixel shadows.

    The angst in this thread is kinda crazy.

    Assume not until the second it goes live. They might have a listing up, but they'll all have "Pre-order" instead of price until you spam F5.

    Mine shipped too. Also picked up another from computer alliance. Is crossfire still a thing? The last card I purchased was hd6900

    Sorry, I did purchase a gtx 1080 but I never used it

    I cannot convince myself to go nvidia with the minimal amount of vram. It’s less than consoles

    I got onto the GA chat system and they dont fekking cover warranty on installing waterblock still.... its all the trend these days. Should be allowed if you dont damage the GPU.
