    Who is buying a 3090?

    Yeah - first time playing my favorite game (ARK: Survival Evolved) for an extended duration last night - I can't say that I could really tell the difference (coming from 2080 Ti FE) despite the stats showing big FPS gains. :) Playing on an Alienware AW3419DW @ 3440x1440/120Hz. Common sense said...

    RTX 2080 Ti FE to RTX 3090 FE - My Exp (Some Benches and $$$ Numbers)

    Same thing happened to me at $1K. DOH! Oh well. Very happy to get that price. Finally did a bunch of gaming last night, note (all stock, using system above, playing ARK: Survival Evolved): - 350W max GPU power - 63 C max temp - Note the "Performance Limits" hit...curious...

    RTX 3090 FE Coil Whine?

    I've got the licensed version and I get this popup - maybe that is it? I was gonna run the test to see but it looks like that may be the prob...LMK...

    Did Nvidia Cancel the RTX 3080 20gb and RTX 3070 16gb

    Yes, that's why there are very few $700 cards (outside of FE) - because there is less profitability at that price range. AIBs had to go over that mark for 95% of their cards to expand their profit. Note that it is near impossible to get a $700 card today. It gets easier as you go higher in the...

    Did Nvidia Cancel the RTX 3080 20gb and RTX 3070 16gb

    The rumor was the 20GB existed for AIBs to squeeze more profit out of the 3080...because the 3080 as-is is not as profitable for AIB as in the past.

    Did Nvidia Cancel the RTX 3080 20gb and RTX 3070 16gb

    Yeah - big gap between 3080 and 3090 rn...that makes sense.

    Can't argue with that source!!!

    RTX 3090 FE Coil Whine?

    I have that same AX1000 PSU - let me know what I can test. Unfortunately, I do not have RDR2 - you're welcome to buy it for me. ;)

    The [H] RTX 3080 owners thread.

    I mean, haven't we all realized that any $$$ over the base, standard MSRP card is not really worth it unless you're an extreme overclocker? So yeah, TUF seems to be the real winner of this. I'd still consider the XC3 Ultra because it's 1) EVGA and 2) potentially more available via the queue...

    Palit Gaming Pro 3090 or Gaming Oc Gigabyte 3090?

    You can do whatever you like! I keep my balanced/default. It still saws frames like crazy. I could change it but I haven't seen a need to do so. I am happy your 750W is more than enough. I run a 650W with a 2080 and a 5820K on one of my boxes. It's also a high quality PSU. Don't let yourself...

    RTX 2080 Ti FE to RTX 3090 FE - My Exp (Some Benches and $$$ Numbers)

    Yeah, the people buying them are likely using them for more than just gaming purposes. Since NVIDIA stopped making the 20xx series and the 30xx series has been scarce, it has created a perfect storm for those that are lucky enough to get a 30xx card...good re-sale in the used market.

    Palit Gaming Pro 3090 or Gaming Oc Gigabyte 3090?

    Compare your results to my results and see? You can directly compare graphics results so it is apples to apples. I was just linking to information, but not doing all of the legwork for you. :p

    Palit Gaming Pro 3090 or Gaming Oc Gigabyte 3090?

    Here are my 3DMark results. Remember - systems vary. With my 9900KS I probably score a tiny bit better in some regard. I had my setup all default - so maybe I need to change to full performance, myself.
