Is that you Jensen???!
Posted in the AMD thread as well, not sure if people go between lol
I ended up with both the 3090 and 6900XT after the way the ordering went down, originally I was keen for the 6900XT so when I could I did an order, but after waiting I ended up grabbing a 3090 when I saw one, seeing reviews and the support in Blender for Optix/CUDA I figured it would prob just be better anyway, not to mention he 24Gb of mem.
Anyway, decided to chuck them against each other anyway, the 6900XT is bloody heavy and damn I love the look of the ref design, but it is slower, the 3090 just smashes it in Blender.
As for gaming, seems about the same based on the 3D Mark stuff I ran, even RT isnt that bad. Did a short comparison video, will just sell the 6900, pretty sure someone will give it a good home
Or we had a 1080 and a 3080 was a perfect upgrade after the stupidness of the 2080ti pricing
its still a dick move by NVidia if the 3080ti does turn out to be true, after statements about the 3080 being the flagship and then a cut down 3090 comes out to buy for not much more, its a just big turkey slap If you bought a 3080 based on the idea that this was going to be nvidias best (unless you take out a 2nd mortage and buy 6x 3090's like old mate in this thread) for this generation.
but most people here have paid between $1399 and $1799 for a 3080 when “in stock”
the 3080ti will be way over $2000+ probably $2200-$2400 for only 5% increase.
a well overclocked 3080 will almost be on par with a stock 3090.
Ordinarily I'd be all over the flagship Ti of a generation, but there's absolutely no way I'll be moving from a soon to be waterblocked 3080. I'm not paying an extra $800-1000 for 5% improvement.
The 3080Ti will only make sense when you can buy it for RRP. For the next 6 months, that won’t be remotely possible.
6 months is optimistic I think.
This was my move. Got my FTW3 Ultra for $1259, can't complain at all and absolutely ZERO regrets
I did the 1080ti > 3080 jump, at 3440x1440 it worked out to be about double FPS in raw performance, not taking into account DLSS, RT etc.
3080ti isn't going to be much faster, unless you need the VRAM it's likely to have any meaningful difference.
3080>3090 is bugger all, 3080>3080ti is likely the same.
Only card I can think of that would cut into 3080 is a beefed up 3070ti at current 3070 price point.
I'm also at 3440x1440, and moving fom an 980Ti to the 3080 XC3 Ultra which I paid $1199 for.
I won't be upgrading again for a long time
Im not sure this is true for most of us. I think the performance gains we have got from the 3080's is enough to tie us over to 4000 series cards.
The top end guys sure they will buy the 3080ti but honestly I am absolutely wrapped with the performance jump I have got from the 3080 and will be content till 4000 series.
If you have a 3080 and want more performance you buy a 3090 or wait for 4000, not buy a 3080ti to realistically achieve 5fps more. The 3080ti is marketed towards people who dont already have a card. Its Nvidia marketing tempting customers to spend more
why would you buy 3090 if you could buy 3080Ti for 500$ less, same performance -4GB RAM
Also it will be targeted towards 95% of people, as there are no 3080 in stock
*Tide. Sorry but it's the third time I've seen this mistake today.
As mentioned this question is for people who dont have a card already. It has nothing to do with 3080 owners who are happy with the performance. It also only applies to those who are willing to wait another 4-6 months depending on when the 3080ti is actually released.
In terms of stock availability, try buy a Radeon card, an AMD cpu, a PS5 or Xbox. Yup same situation everywhere.
I learnt my lesson after the 2080ti’s $2500 for a card I bought 1 year ago to be maybe worth $850-900 now
The FE 3080 is only 11% slower at 4k than the FE 3090.
I'm sure AIB cards that gap is even smaller.
Hmmm. The more I look at the Suprim X the more I like it. I may have to turn a blind eye, even though I don't want to.
