    It's never too late to get a 5950X and sell it to me cheap!

    Ive already got one thanks :)
    The 5800x is a little bit faster than the 5950x running pure GPU benches .
    Obviously the 5950x is better for running combined benches .

    Oh, so that part was serious. I thought you meant it was all trying to play with OJR :lol:

    Your Kingpin GPU, that's a 2080Ti?

    Nice, what's the power pull on that when going hard?

    Triple rad and 3x 8 pin power so that's a max of 750w or so?

    Took the fans off and put the rad in ice.
    About 7 to 800 watts . Higher with better cooling .
    The XOC bios and classy tool is a 1000watt max I believe .
    The 2080ti can take over 800watts on DICE .

    Cheapest ASUS is $939. Crazy. Wasn't the 3070 meant to be $999 or something?

    EDIT: Cheapest of any model 3070 $1,149.

    Feck me.

    Yeah, there was an innovision/inno3D card in the $800 range. I paid $929 for mine on launch night, that model has only been hiked by about $40 - but there's been slight price rises across all models.

    The price of the 3060 cards though is pretty insane. If nVidia really cared about helping gamers, they'd come up with a verified purchaser program allowing one per person.

    As I get older, and money is less of an issue, I just see this as adjusting expectations of what to pay for something...

    If nVidia came out and said RTX3080's are the new 2080Ti at $2000, with everything else priced in ratio with that (including 3060 at $1k), people wouldn't be that fussed.

    It's just knowing that something was supposed to be half the price of what it is now that is annoying people, but prices are set based on supply vs demand anyway, it's just in this case, supply started off poor, only got slightly better, and then hella worse after that, so that's that.

    People just looking at buying a GPU now should really just wait if $1k is too much for 3060... if they can't wait, then they should go right ahead and buy one and enjoy it. Nobody should give others a hard time over paying $1k for a 3060.

    I disagree, people would still be fussed and they have every right to be. A mid-range card (the 3060) should not cost anywhere close to $1k. It's absurd.

    Gaming should be accessible. I have no problems with NVIDIA making the 3090, they can even make a $5000 3090 Ti if they want, but you should be able to buy a solid, current-gen GPU for ~$500... as it as been for every previous generation.

    I don't think I'm disagreeing with that, just saying there's people shaming others into not spending $1k on a 3060... What do you want those individuals to do?

    They can get a 1080ti for $450 if they can't spend $1k right now, or a 2060 for abit more, etc.

    This whole "anybody who spends $1k on a 3060 is out of their minds" perspective is one that just generates negativity without offering a solution of that makes sense...

    3090 card is the only one that hasn't had $500 slapped on it. One of the reasons why I purchased last month. No regrets either as the PNY card I have is a reference design and rather small.

    The world has gone made, including me. I would never have purchased this card but my stubborness overrides good financial sense. It is disappointing to see the 3060 literally doing only 10 or 15% better than a 2060 super.

    Why did they put so much memory on it? Weird.

    I do not blame nVidia. They are not manufacturing the chips and boards. It seems they underestimated demand for 30xx by probably calculating a similar level of demand as for the 20xx series. What they (and also AMD) couldn't foresee was the sudden explosion of demand through a certain "non gaming" crowd of shitheads.

    Cmon man, you know what he is implying. It isn't scientists. Plus, there seems to be plenty of 3090's around...hehehe.

    I agree Nvidia were unlucky. We all were. I am kind of glad I didn't buy on day one though. I would have purchased a card that is not as well designed as the one I have now. The eye watering price though is a different story.

    Yeah I was just being me.. But the constant harping on about miners.. "The gpus are made for gamers only" crap is on the nose.. If Nvidia/AMD really wanted to "fix the problem" they could but like politics its easier and more profitable to have the peasants fight themselves than admit selling to miners is far more fiscally sensible.
