    RTX 3090 leaks have it 50% better than 2080Ti. Skip to 3:37

    Kinda sad news for 3080 or 3080Ti

    Are they ditching TItan or 3060 branding and just going 3090, 3080 TI, 3080, 3070?

    There were some rumours of them ditching the ti branding... so the 3090 would be the 3080ti. But not sure on the source of that.

    Latest source was apparently 3080Ti does exist then 3090 is higher. I would assume replacing Titan name? But this is complete speculation.

    Purely from a branding perspective wouldn't it make sense to keep the Ti moniker? Ti is synonymous with the big dog gaming gpu, unless they keep the Ti branding available for a future refresh of the line-up. Or just ditch it altogether, I don't know.

    Confusing card names is just part of nvidias moniker

    Remember theirs a titan XP and a titan X pascal

    That's just over a month away. That seems like a shockingly low amount of hype build time.

    It was pretty close.

    The ek blocks for the titans i bought came out pretty much at the same time. It wouldnt surprise me with ek get a few cards pre release to design the blocks before hand

    Aftermarket water blocks (remove the air cooler yourself) often become available very quickly - weeks after card availability. Cards that ship with a waterblock seem to take much longer though - think 6 months to a year.

    Looks like it might be even earlier.



    GN is usually pretty good with their sources, Sept 9, just one month away, is what their board partner sources are saying for the announcement.

    That's good news.. but even then probably still ~2 months away til 3080Ti cards are available from local retailers.
    And most buyers probably want to check some reviews before picking the 3080Ti models, unless you are willing to trust the brand/model and the spec page or just get one asap and then upgrade to premium model later etc.

    But I guess what we really want to know is the Performance!!! and the Price..

    Also have to worry about covid and stock levels etc if you want a 3080ti

    Basically its the same every year. Its a huge "early adopters fee"

    I'll probably just pre-order a Strix 3080 or 3080ti, I need to move on from SLI 980ti's and those are strix cards and haven't had a problem. 2 and a half months until 2077 is out should be more than enough time for board partner cards to release.

    Is it worth waiting for AIB cards or trying to get a founders edition early? Anyone have some experience with this dilemma.

    Depends what you want, most of the the time watercoolers will snap up the cheaper reference cards (normally with blower style coolers) and just slap a custom block on them.

    The AIB cards normally have much better air coolers.

    Then there's the top tier cards (kingpin, HOF etc) that have more unlocked power options but come with the hefty price tag

    Really comes down to how quickly do you want it and how much you want to risk missing out entirely.

    The only thing I care about is that I get it before Cyberpunk 2077 comes out. I just bought the parts to refresh my system (mostly worried about the AIO and case going out of stock so I decided to move on them) so I'm ready to go. So I'll make the choice when we get more info.
