    Well the top card 4 years ago was actually the Titan X for $1200.
    The 3090 is effectively the titan replacement.

    What resolution do you game at? I was thinking the 3080 was for me but also it might be overkill at 1440p.

    Then again I'm sure those next gen games will need the power.

    "Upgrading" to a card with less VRAM must been bad though? We don't know enough about 'RTX IO' to know if it effectively reduces VRAM requirements. I doubt it will, else why put 24GB on the 3090.....

    It's thought a good one should be ok.

    Its been out 2 years, what did they expect Nvidia to bring on a new node. They should have sold up months a go.

    Well, TBH, I wish I was "lumbered" with a 2080 Ti!

    Then I wouldn't need to be buying a 3080 FE, but as I only have a 1070, I'm overdue an upgrade.

    Im not worried about losing a GB of Vram compared to the generational leap in performance and RTX I get

    Yea for me the standout feature was RTX IO.

    Not sure if this means we don't need to upgrade to PCIe4 gen SSD tho or if it will boost our current PCIe3 gen ssds?

    Pay a bit more for it IMO, not like it's a silly increase like the 3090

    Is that a 120mm fan I can see on the 3090?

    It will be interesting to see how they turn out. At least hopefully gamers of all persuasions will have options this year!

    4K. This will provide more than enough grunt for me personally. Just hope the RTX IO thing actually works.

    £1k sounds fair for me, and they'd pretty much sell everything they can produce!

    That's normally how it goes with tech though.

    My 1080Ti isn't worth much, and the 3080 I'll probably end up getting will be worthless eventually too.

    So this is interesting.

    In the Nvidia Reflex video they confirmed and showed off that there is a tuning part for overclocking as part of the GeForce Experience which can be used to enable automatic tuning (overclock) and maintains the profile. Be interested to see how well that actually works.
