    If developers start to change games to truly to take advantage of the faster storage tech then that's a win. SSD's are cheap now even M2's. Happy to buy more of those :)

    In the 2nd video (trailer) at 1:13 the blue window/building that they land on appears and then a fraction of a second later the bugs that are sitting on it pop in. There are also framerate drops around the rifts. It makes sense if they are loading things into an engine rather than just showing a pre-rendered trailer where there's no reason for a slowdown or pop-in of assets.

    The only way PC is going to be able to get SSD performance like PS5 is with motherboard chipset changes. Linus made the mistake of claiming the PS5 SSD was nothing flash and made a fool of himself. Will be truly next gen SSD performance out of PS5, about all I am looking forward to tech wise (of course keen for the epic exclusive titles)




    Also talks about video they did showing no real gains between sata ssd and pcie gen 4 ssd due to bottlenecks in software/hardware.

    My car is probably now worth less than what a 3090 is going to cost.

    Don't understand why certain people are getting so butt hurt about nvidia's pricing. Why are people looking for value in flagship cards? It's not there, and has literally never been there.

    The value is and always has been in the mid-range. Look at the 2070 Super for example, outperforms a 1080Ti only 2 years later for USD $200 less, or a 2060 Super, 90% of a 1080Ti performance for a bit over half the price. Great value cards.

    Flagship cards have never been about value. Buying hardware at the cutting edge is expensive, because it's incredibly expensive to make. Yields are pathetically low, and R&D is exhorbitantly expensive. But some people are too stupid to realise that. They go around crying, wanting 4k 200hz performance for $50 and think it's price gouging when they can't get it.

    Were the Geforce 2 Ultra, 7900GTX or 8800 Ultra good value? No. Were the 9800XT, Radeon 7990 or R9 295X2 good value? Definately not. But did they pioneer new technology which a generation later trickled down into the value mid-range and uplifted performance across the industry? Yes.

    So stop whinging about the price of graphics cards. Buy what you can afford. If you can't afford a card that gives you the performance that you're looking for, stiff shit. Suck it up princess and wait a generation.

    Because it was double the previous gen high end. I could easily afford it and still skipped because encouraging bad business practice only hurts everyone in the long run.

    Sadly we all pay because of the people who bought 2080Tis

    Exactly, we should be paying $400 for the mid range cards not $800

    No - it's not. Release price of the 1080 Ti was USD $700, the 2080Ti was USD $1000, so $300 more. As recently as early this year, you could buy new 2080Tis for AUD $1400, but the massive hardware shortage and impact on manufacturing due to Covid has pushed prices up temporarily.

    Why? Because you think that's the correct pricing? and again, prior to the Covid price increases, you could buy a 2060 Super for $500.

    Other factor in the whining is the 1080ti was like 50% quicker then 980ti and the 2080ti was like 30% quicker then 1080ti. They paid premium for RTX that was under used.

    Ill make it easy for you.

    980Ti - 1080Ti - 50% uplift in performance, same cost
    1080Ti - 2080Ti - 20% uplift in performance, +50% cost

    I dont get why you would defend that. I purchased my 1080Ti for like $925 mid cycle. Even if you want to claim its $1400 when every shop is $1800, it still doesnt make up for the lost performance or value.

    My max budget is $1000, whatever the best card is at the time for that money (assuming its better than the 1080ti i have)... I am so hoping that we have some competition between red and green

    Lets hope so. I got my 1080Ti for $900 like 2 or 3 years ago so I would HOPE that 2 generations later, the same price brings much better performance.
