    i for one welcome emptying my wallet into a pit of performance I'll never properly utilise

    Paid $1470 for my 2080ti, and then some for the waterblock and so on

    It's great, I can play 7 Days to Die with its 2008-esque graphics on anything up to 58 fps

    Can't wait to drop $2200 on a 3080ti to get that sweet 77 fps

    Because at the end of the day (imo) it's the kids who aren't real developers and not motivated by the income from churning out the next CoD:MW that are making games that are actually fun to play

    It also looks better than traditional lighting.

    I didn't buy a 20xx series card because I didn't think they were worth the price. 2 major factors: very few ray traced games and the performance hit was too much.
    If they can resolve the performance hit (I want 4K60 in Cyberpunk 2077) then I'll buy one because I think ray tracing looks great. The only 2 games I care about for 2020 are that and Doom Eternal which isn't going to be ray traced.

    Doom Eternal could have RTX down the line like Wolf Youngblood.
    As for RTX personally i dont think it is the way

    Yep. Cyberpunk 2077 is the only game I care about since Witcher III. I will pay for a 3080 Ti Rape Your Wallet Edition if that is what I need for 4K60.

    Custom chips optimised for doing specific computations is looking like the future reality in many aspects of computing tech, including servers.

    URL?
    I've googled but can't find any links to anything relevant to this - i know it's fake - i was just curious about it's origin.

    Your point is valid however I am inclined to agree with neRok. Look at the ASIC devices with mining. I think the driver is, like most things, economy of scale. If there is money to be made then someone will invest in the hardware. We are somewhat already there if you think about all the control modules in cars and so forth.

    Taking this with kilograms of salt...but saw this on hothardware:

    https://hothardware.com/news/ampere-gpu-leak-nvidia-7552-cores-blockbuster-performance

    "....Getting back to the leak, Twitter user _rogame uncovered a couple of Geekbench entries for "two unknown NVIDIA GPUs." One is listed as having 7,552 CUDA cores, 118 compute units (CUs), a 1.11GHz clockspeed, and 24GB of memory. The second one has 6,912 CUDA cores, 108 CUs, a 1.01GHz clock, and 47GB of memory..."

    I don't for one minute buy the 24/48GB for consumer GPU's...I personally don't expect more than 16GB for the Ti models.

    Anyway again, could be some near-truths in here :Paranoid::Paranoid:

    Either someone is spoofing geekbenchies, or those cards could be dedicated serverside compute cards.

    Could be the quadro cards. The 2nd gen Titan V had 32GB of VRAM, 1.2 GHz core clock and 5120 CUDA cores.

    I did read a few reports on the weekend that hypothesised we are seeing the datacentre cards which is apparently what Nvidia will release first. Nothing substantial enough that I would bother claiming anything as fact yet.

    Gotta love you some wild, rampant speculation on the Web when an important decision needs to be researched ;).

    I would hope so, I must say I'm a little underwhelmed that my 2080Ti can only manage 60FPS @ 1440P maxed settings on Crysis 3. Having said that, it is Crysis 3 :lol:

    Crysis 3 is pretty intense still.
    Id love to see a dx12/vulkan port on the new cryengine.
    Its the only good crysis besides 1/warhead as well i hated 2
