They can stuff it. Nearly 75% more money than the 3080 for around 10% more performance even at 4k. FFS might as well get the full blown 3090 for 300 bucks more.
I was spoiled with my old 1080 TI cranking away in the secondary PC, that 30% performance jump from 1080 to 1080 TI was amazing. Now, the 2080 TI XC I have (grabbed it for $400 when people were dropping their cards for the 3XXX), will most likely be the card I hold onto till the next generation. I base this on the one 3090 FTW Ultra, which reports 1-2 drops per month (recorded on the EVGA queue), and I am only (possibly) 25 cards out.... Which at this rate will be July 2023.
It would be nice to have another card to drive this 38" Alienware with a better card... But I cannot look forward to buying a 3080 TI FTW Ultra (I assume it will be around $1300-1400) when I could just spend some more on the 3090. Blah.
GL to all of you though that want a new card.
