    5820k upgrade - is it time?

    5820k @ 4.3GHz w/2080Ti setup, gaming @ 4k/60Hz. I plan on upgrading my GPU and display when the newer cards are easier to get a hold of. Is it time to upgrade my CPU as well? Im not sure if I should just wait it out for Zen 4 or something Intel, or just bite the bullet. There are some decent...

    Radeon 6000 series speculation

    I do all these things so... Looking at the 6900xt, hoping it’s that much better than the 3080 in 4k/60Hz w/ Ray Ray Tracing to justify the $1k price, otherwise I’ll wait for better availability of the 3080 or whatever Nvidia’s version of the 3080Ti is.

    Waiting for benches on the 6900XT. Looks like I will be going AMD for the first time in almost a decade.

    Voodoo or Voodoo 2, I can't remember.

    AMD Zen 3 Launch Event Discussion

    I was thinking of that, but there are no guarantees that AM5 (or whatever AMD calls it) will offer similar upgrade options as AM4 has. I will probably wait- I thought the new chips this time around would require a new chipset but I guess I was wrong. I want my next setup to last me at least...

    AMD Zen 3 Launch Event Discussion

    At 4k/60 I'm not likely to be CPU bound in any game, even with a 3080 or better, but I suspect my average low framerates will be pretty inconsistent compared to a newer CPU. Still not sure. Definitely will be upgrading either this round or the next.

    AMD Zen 3 Launch Event Discussion

    My 5820k has served me well, I've gotten almost 6yrs out of it. I'm wondering if I should even bother upgrading at this point and wait for the next round? Most of my gaming is 4k/60Hz- I imagine upgrading won't help me push any more FPS but will help me maintain more consistant framerates?

    AMD Zen 3 Launch Event Discussion

    When are the benchmarks supposed to be available? I'm bummed I just bought a 3.0 NVME. Oh well, I guess it's not going to matter all that much.

    AMD Zen 3 Launch Event Discussion

    Being that I have a 5820k and I have to upgrade my CPU, motherboard and ram, I want my next setup to last as long. I wouldn't mind springing a bit extra.

    Time for me to upgrade my 5820k@4.3GHz. 5900x is the CPU of choice for gaming I take it?

    Big Navi is coming

    Well, if the 6900XT does challenge the 3080 that will only push Nvidia put out the 20GB 3080 that much faster. The problem is actually getting one. lol

    Big Navi is coming

    So for 10-15% why would I even bother? We're talking about 4k/60Hz I presume?

    Big Navi is coming

    We can hope this will preform better than my 2080Ti but I have my doubts.

    Why can't we back order a 3080?

    Because they have no idea when they're going to get stock I suppose. I'm just holding on to my 2080Ti and waiting for the 20GB 3080's now, 6mos to whenever.

    Let’s determine which 30x0 cards have more than one HDMI 2.1 port.

    These cards are next to impossible to get anyways. I’ll probably just hold on to my 2080Ti and wait for the 20GB 3080s (whenever that is).

    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    Average of ~10.5% increase over 3080 in game performance. If this is the norm then it's a pass for me. 20G 3080 here I come...

    Holy shit!!! After seeing this I don’t think a 3090 will fit in my old HAF-X case, and my case is pretty big. Lol

    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    As I said I will wait for the 3090 benchmarks from a wide range of sources before I decide. That said, even if I wanted one I doubt I'll be able to get one during the first wave anyways.

    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    I have a 2080Ti- I have a 5820k @ 4.3GHz and game at 4k/60Hz. More than a few titles can't max out at the resolution/refresh rate. I'm waiting on the next generation of CPU's before I upgrade there, but I was considering a 3090 as a way to play some of the newer games maxed out at 4k. If there...

    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    Definitely waiting for more benches, especially from places like here and Hardwareunboxed. I've seen places that show differences of up to 19%. If 10% is the best case scenario then I'll probably just wait on the 20GB 3080s. Somewhat glad I held on to my 2080Ti.

    Let’s determine which 30x0 cards have more than one HDMI 2.1 port.

    Never considered this. Damnit, I guess no EVGA or MSI 3090s for me this round. Only brands with transferable warranties.

    NVIDIA will no longer be adding new SLI driver profiles starting on January 1st, 2021

    Developers won’t do this so SLI is pretty much dead now.

    Who is buying a 3080 and 3090?

    EVGA or MSI 3090. Only cards with transferable warranties.

    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    I plan on picking up a 3090 so I'm going to have to upgrade my 5820k @ 4.3GHz soon. Be interesting to see how it performs at 4k/60Hz. I will be investing in a better display as well.

    Which manufacturers have transferable warranties?

    Well, I figure if I'm going to invest another $1500 in a videocard after already investing $1000 I might as well get one that's easier to sell. I know Nvidia's warranty is original owner only so the 3090 FE is out for me.

    Potential RTX 3000 buyers...what monitors will you be driving?

    Picking up a 3090 so either the LG CX48 or any other good HDMI 2.1 display in the 43-48” size range.

    Which manufacturers have transferable warranties?

    I usually stick with EVGA on the Nvidia side because the transferable warranty makes the cards easier to sell (still 16mos left on my 2080Ti Black). I think MSI also has a transferable warranty? Any others? What about AMD?

    LG 48CX

    So what does this mean on the 48" LG CX in comparison to new OLEDs from Sony and Vizio that support the full HDMI 2.1 48Gbps? Neither of them will produce a 48" OLED display, correct? Are there any other non-OLED displays incoming that are <48" that will support the full HDMI 2.1 48Gbps bandwidth?
