    Tricky time for retailers now as well, at what point do you start worrying about the value of stock ur holding

    If you believe the "Nvidia will no longer improve performance without a matching (or disproportionate) price increase." crowd, there's nothing to worry about with existing stock because it's value proposition will never change. If anything it will become *more* valuable as price/performance ratios get worse and worse with every new generation going forward.:rolleyes:

    Because Turing.

    How did so many people swallow the Turing myth?

    Because Leather Jacket man appeared on the top of Mount Sinai, and behold in his hand he had a 2080 ti, then he spent 2 hours babbling about ray tracing, the sheeple then produced their wallets and gave thanks for the rogering they were about to receive.

    Well the current rumours are suggesting it'll be roughly twice the speed of the 1080Ti which I currently use at 3440x1440.

    I have little trouble hitting 80fps, albeit with some settings turned down a touch in more demanding stuff, so I see no reason why a 3080Ti wouldn't manage 160 in most games although maybe not at max settings in everything.

    650w will be plenty.

    650W will be plenty. Max power consumption is going to be 375W (more likely 350W). That leaves you 275W. Your CPU is 150W max absent heavy overclocking. That leaves 125W for your motherboard and SSDs. Plenty.

    He may as well go the whole hog and wear a turtleneck and jeans as his presentations are getting ever more "Jobs" like.

    That Guru3D article though pure nonsense. "I know we need to fill a page and we have nothing. Lets do some news on the new cards based on no more information than previously just to fill a page."

    Its all based on what a LFC Twitter fan just said off the cuff, a twitter user who replies to his own tweets !

    Could run a Vega 64 on a 650W PSU fine, and a 1000w PSU was the recommended for those :p

    Should be fine for any single card. Even with a 1000w psu I have ran sli cards in the past with a heavy oc’d cpu and watercooling setup without going much over 700w so should be fine.

    One my older overclocked SLI systems used to draw 835watts with just a dual core cpu

    Think that may been my water cooled SLI 8800gtx & e8500 cpu setup

    But muh rays!

    Serious question, how many games now support full RTX capability?

    I dont think any game does full rtx cos no card can do full rtx at more than a slide show, they make you choose features.

    But the games can still support the suite even if the card can't actually do it right? A brief check on t'internet shows 13 games as of the start of last month that are released and support RTX. 2 years down the line and there are 13 games supporting this feature that adds massive cost to the card and tanks performance.

    Did you not read about the DLSS cult on these threads @Sargatanas2511 ? Its a similar story couple of years, handful of games except it makes your card walk on water! :p

    Haha yeah it's crazy how much stock people are putting into RTX and DLSS and most games don't even use it!
