    Crucially tho, one of those games is CP2077 and you can bet plenty of future games will support RT

    This is actually a fair point. That game, and that game alone, will determine which GPU more people buy this year than possibly the last five years combined. Based on the evidence to date (sketchy at best) then if I had to buy a GPU tomorrow (and they were actually available) I would get a 3080 because of that game.

    But having watched a comparison video with RTX On/Off.. i'm not convinced it looks "better" with it on.. just "different"

    Haven't quite kept my ear to the ground recently but still not heard of this, and I'm a bit doubtful as there are still shortages and people are still buying so I don't see any price drops just as yet.

    Yeah the demand right now far outweighs the supply and the retailers know it. They'll keep the pricing as high as they can because they won't have any issues finding people willing to throw money at them.

    Haven't ran it yet, getting a bit hot here and the benching wasn't helping haha. It was 19k graphics back when I was on a 336w PL, but I've flashed a 374w BIOS now (ZOTAC AMP).

    What exactly makes you "totally disillusioned" with it?

    I’m reserving judgement of amds “paper launch” until after the 25th when the aib cards go on sale.

    Ampere isn't the 3090, nor is it a price, it's a generational architecture. Still not sure what about Ampere is so bad you wouldn't want any part of it.
