    Any thoughts on the ventus 3080? Local store is taking $200 deposits with an ETA of 2 to 4 weeks.

    It's not a card I was considering previously, but I'm pretty much limited to Asus TUF or EVGA due to card length otherwise.

    >“For the quarter in review, Nvidia sold at least $175 million worth of new generation GPUs to ethereum miners, helping the outperformance,” Bitcoin.com reported based on a note from RBC Capital Markets analyst Mitch Steves. “The analyst had guided sales to miners to come in at $150 million for the quarter.”

    >Etherium 2.0, Scheduled to take place in december, requires more gpu power, which
    >AMD, while also being impossible to find, appears to have nerfed the 6000 series' mining capability, making it a more gaming focused card


    What are your thoughts on this? Is this frustrating? Are you going to buy AMD? will I even be able to get a 1660 super at a good price before the scalpers buy every graphics card on the planet?

    I had a look at whattomine and it didn't look very enticing for my 3080.

    Yeah I’m hoping you can just disable it. Have so many bad memories of loud 40mm server fans.

    Wish I could post images here, would have one of my EVGA RTX 3090 FTW3 Ultra that I just picked up from post office.
    Got a cool night ahead of installing and benchmarking, the missus won't be happy!

    Still no ETA? Scorptec gave me 9th of December, but there is a bit of a premium over the PLE pricing... :Paranoid:

    Seems everyone except PLE has a premium going on..yet PLE wont take orders without full payment up front which is annoying

    Like...as if they couldn't re-sell any change of mind orders at this point

    Yeah it's fair. PLE has direct access to EVGA stock apparently the rest of the retailers have to go through distros, or so it is believed. I had a PLE pre-order but after nearly two months wait, I just gave up. I ordered this latest RTX 3080 from Scorptec just a few days ago and shortly got an ETA before Cyberpunk 2077 :)
