Ladies and Gentlemen (because I think we have both here), you all might want to catch this video from Moore's Law Is Dead:


Dude revealed potential numbers of RTX 3080s, RTX 3090s and RTX 3070s that will hit the market at the end of this month that nVIDIA is shipping...right this minute. Also, here's the Madden Short Summary of the shipping numbers:

300,000+ RTX 3080s = "BOOM!"
30,000+ RTX 3090s = "POW"
"A boatload of" RTX 3070s = "WHAP ZOWIE!"

Don't believe me? Watch the video. Also, let's see the scalpers buy up at least 90% of those numbers all by themselves...out!

If I want to know I will ask people in engineering, software og logistics....I will not use a youtube "influencer" with no engineering background.
I guess I don't care for the "drama", I just want numbers, facts and stats.

Some muppet trying to make "tabloid" like videos for hits...nah.

EDIT:
Take shite like "ray-tracing traversal coprocessor"...that is why I don't waste my time with people like that.
People only remember their vauge "hits"....but "ray-tracing traversal coprocessor"...forgotten fast because it doesn't suit the agenda...

Think you got the wrong guy. That was Coreteks. If you are going to slag folks, might want to get that right.

MLID has been very much on point for most of his forward-looking coverage.

How is MLID an "influencer?" He is exactly the apposite of an influencer IMO. He is giving numbers, stats, and facts to the best of his ability. So when have you ever gotten numbers, facts, and stats about products outside of GPU specs from NVIDIA, AMD, or Intel? Not sure of what you want, just what you don't want....

He perputated the false rumor...and he also had the "Tensor core memory compression" FUD and DLSSS 3.0 (always forced on).
I am sure he has had more misses...but I don't watch him, I only observe the "fallout" on forums when he "speculates"

He is not a reviewer.
He is not an engineer.
He posts "rumors" that makes no sense...except for click-bait.

I guess he just belongs to a breed I don't care for.

The traversal coprocessor name actually came from a Nvidia document, their patent application. Nvidia smartly renamed it to RT core. Their patent allows or covers both internal or external design for this, he/Coreteks was very clear that it was his speculation and not any sort of leak as well.

As for Tom at MLID, yes, he is actually an Engineer, worked in the automotive field, graduated from Michigan Tech.

You know, if you are going to attack a person, fine. But at least do it in the context of what is posted in the thread. You remind me of that guy that called me a fraud for what one of my editors fucked up on, which was corrected, but it is literally 20 years later and that is the only argument you can bring.

If you are going to target a man, at least target him and argue with him for the ideas he puts forth, and not the fact that you don't like him.

No it doesn’t. The patent clearly shows the interface between an SM and the RT core. It says nothing about an interface between two chips. The rumor was stupid on multiple levels. Just let it die.

Actually it does allow it, we discussed this before. Beyond scope of this thread in any case.

https://hardforum.com/threads/rtx-3xxx-performance-speculation.1987972/post-1044625394

Actually, no it doesn't. Repeating an incorrect statement doesn't make it true. You seem to think that "not limited thereto" means that we can invent whole chips using our imagination.

Systems and methods for an efficient and robust multiprocessor-coprocessor interface that may be used between a streaming multiprocessor and an acceleration coprocessor in a GPU are provided.

Not understanding the patent scope does not restrict possible configurations. I took the info straight from the patent with the diagram separating the SM and Coprocessor using a communication bus. That means it could be hooked up by any means Nvidia wants, internal or external. Corteks did not just make things up. Anyways that is it, folks can look, if they even care about this. Not important for this thread.

I would really like to grab RTX 3070 FE. It will be mpre than enough. Ampere overall design looks fantastic.

I really like the work Gamers Nexus does but holy shit does Stephen just drone on and on and on... his voice puts me to sleep every time. The guy's like an energy vampire or something.


He should have someone edit a TLDR of his videos.

Anyway, this is the card I have my eye on, hopefully we'll see stock soon.

I liked the overview and breakdown of the card, for me that is top notch. Still would prefer the 3080 FE due to being a 2 slot solution that gets the job done. While 3 slot solutions are doable if one wants access to all pcie 16x slots if using extension cables and a case that can support such configurations, it becomes rather clunky and large in the end. If Nvidia does not have the 20gb 3080 FE, then that makes it even harder for me to consider now the 3080 overall. May still pick one up anyways due to the very unique features Nvidia does have. If AMD falls through as in not having a good performing, feature enriched card, needed support, available => 3090 would be my best option with a new case when needed to get to the pcie 16x slots using extension cables. Right now I am using 3 of the 4 pcie 16x slots on the Threadripper system and could use the 4 fourth slot if I need to (2x 1080Ti's, NVME expander card). Have to see how the 3080 20gb versions perform and cost, size etc. if they are around a $1000 for a decent one then a 3090 makes more sense.

He's had some interesting insider types on his podcasts over the last year. I get not buying into every rumor out there but the hate some of these guys get just amazes me. They are not your ordinary click bait, daily rumor pundits. I suppose it shouldn't since I've been around this industry long enough just as a customer.

Anyway, we'll see in 2-3 weeks if boatloads of 3080s and 3070s show up in the nick of time for Navi's reveal. I think the info on the 3080 20gb prices is spot on going by past history. $1k 3080 20gb custom cards, hopefully those being the top end models with AIO water cooling.

Well on the upside, I get a nice email from the retailer that lays out in pretty extensive detail all the reasons I’ll be waiting till November at least.

So I’ve got that going for me

Do not attempt. This is a 3090 XC3 Ultra, by the way.

I had a script running to add to cart, two cards added to cart but never went to checkout despite me spamming the buttons mad. At this point, it's coming down to your physical distance to BB's servers just like with HFT traders in NY locating close to the exchange. WTF.

I signed up at 5:11 AM the morning it launched and I haven't got my notification yet so they aren't even close to getting through their first day much yet their first week.

And yet it's supposedly not a paper launch. Fuck Nv .. even if they had supply issues they could have said situation will improve in 2 months instead of shortage till 2021, giving scalpers reason to continue trying the F5/botting game all day and folks with lives and work to go empty handed.

Got an email about my 9/22 Evga Xc3 Ultra order on Amazon. Had said 10/16 delivery since I ordered it.

I had to confirm that I still want it the order. Did that, now it just says order received with no ship date. Guess we'll see what next week brings.

I had the same email come in and I cancelled. Got a 3080 XC3 Ultra through the EVGA store. Seems like XC3 variants are being produced in far lesser quantities than the FTW3.
