    Well yeah the 3080 and 3090 are fairly closely matched up to 4k that I don't see the real point of it for the time being. It's probably mostly to counter the 16GB on the AMD offerings from a marketing standpoint

    Thanks for the tip about it being in the account (only)... had to click around to find it, but now I have my code as well. Asking a mate for his GFE and Blizzard credentials so he can download for the rest of the year :lol:

    Likely not much different to the many other times a ti has launched after a "titan class card" and made said "titan" irrelevant

    There seems to be a lot of people with high expectations of a 3080ti... not sure where those expectations are coming from tbh.

    They aren't going to redesign the chip between now and Feb. So it will only be one of two things. Either the same 3080 chip with 20gb memory, which we have already been told isn't needed apparently. But it might help with 4k, so there's that I guess. Or it will be the 3090 chip with 20gb memory. Which isn't that much faster than a 3080 in the first place.

    Either way it looks pretty underwhelming to me. Still under 3090 performance either way, and you pay I assume somewhere in between a 3080 and 3090 price for it.

    My 3080 FTW3 Ultra disappeared from the ETA at PLE - gave them a call and it shipped two days ago! It's about 90km away right now so probably will get it after boxing day.... then I have to wait until we move into our new place mid Jan to install.

    I'm almost in the club!

    I certainly don't have half the patience of you guys :lol: I found it hard enough to wait two weeks.

    No notification from PLE but my card's tracking appeared in the auspost app so now it's time to play the waiting game

    Yeah they don't give the notification of shipment so it'll be in your hands soon enough.
