    How about we dont call anyone morons?

    Let's face it, were all insane paying this much for a little rectangle that allows us to play games. The real geniuses are the console gamers.

    If they where complacent then AMD would have capitalised.

    Fair enough. I have what he would call a moron card in my SFF case. Absolutely no need for me to spend an extra £80 when noise doesn’t bother me one bit, even when the headphones aren’t on.

    Ok. I was speaking in general terms not to you personally but it read thay way, the supers were added later which Is what I was referring to. They didn't supercede the 2080ti, they might well do with the 3090 even if they were to tell you otherwise. Companies are utterly shameless these days as we know.

    Yes they are, agreed.
    A friend bought 2x 980's when they launched, only for the TIs to release a few months later. I didn't want to be in a similar boat. They didn't seem to do that for the 2080TI's, so I hope its the same for the next gen. I suspect there will always be refreshes in the mid pack, bridging the gaps between cards more. It's just the top end I hope they don't do it for.

    $538 inc. b/o spread

    the share price is already ludicrous (P/E ratio of 98!!!), but I’m banking on them having a decent quarter

    I'm looking forward to see if RDNA2 can compete with Ampere with its more elegant solution in regards to RT, can't wait for more info on that in general!

    Steve (GN) posted a video cradling a Corsair AX1600i PSU while talking mysteriously about an "upcoming build" heh.

    No real way of knowing in advance, I suspect this time they may supercede the 3090 depending on what AMD can come up with.

    Actually that's where your wrong, Turing 1 was a very complacent release which delivered very little if any performance uplift at each price point.

    Also looking at the power usage of these cards I would say there is very little left in the tank if AMD do knock it out the park.

    OK currant pricing.

    RTX Titan $2499
    RTX2080 Super $699
    RTX2070 Super $499
    RTX2060 Super $399



    Launch pricing.

    RTX Titan $2499
    RTX2080ti $1199
    RTX2080 $799
    RTX2070 $599
    RTX2060 $349

    Non founders MSRP was about $100 cheaper.

    Things to remember, the 3080 has more memory than the card it is replacing (the 8 GB 2080 super)
    NVidia have pulled a bit of a blinder, by getting rid of the Titan and renaming it to the 3090. Many more people will now buy one. (of course they may still release a titan latter on and I fully expect a 3080ti latter)

    I don't think that's what they done, they have just moved the halo card from 80ti to 90, and increased the price by i'm guessing £300.

    The Titan was never really part of the traditional stack is was an outlier, and as you say it can come, but at 2.5-3k, and there's always room for tons of re-milks up and down the stack as people are made to feel stupid for buying a great card a few months earlier, which has now been superceded.

    Lol you sure are going to upset the people who think the 3070 is replacing the 2080Ti.

    Current launch is to beat AMD to market, once AMD launch we'l see the Ti variants with price alteration to the non Ti's
