Still solid buy from me and I'm even coming up from a 2080S for 1440p. Just a matter of when to expect these cards. I got in on an early pre-order for the Ventus OC on Amazon which was likely caused by a slip up and it went from pre-order to not yet shipped so they must be honoring those who got in on time but even then I'm really not expecting anything till October.

What is telling... is that CPU doesn't matter as much at 4k Ultra... 4770k OC vs. i9 9900k is maybe 10%

CPU is more of a bottle neck the lower your resolution which is often why CPU reviewers typically run games at 720p or 1080p but even with the 3080 it seems like there being held back a little even at 1440p.

I sure wish I had the option to brush everything under the rug when I had a mental break down from doing tech support for several years. Instead though I got turbo wrecked instantly even with medical leave benefits. My credit got fucked and I had to uproot my entire life to move across the province with my parents while I trickled what money I had from social services in to collections and my student loan.

Now I have no kids and three money but my credit is still in the dumpster.

Kind of funny everyone jumping on the Nvidia bandwagon and taking Nvidia's word on the performance. People who think they can go to their favorite website or store to get one of these cards will be very disappointed at least for the remainder of this year as the best place to buy one of these cards will probably be Ebay at a much higher price. It will be interesting to see if AMD's cards are more available and close to Nvidia's performance claims.

Kitguru has an early impression video which has actual performance charts for the RTX 3080 and even though it's in a pretty limited environment the card was about 80% faster than an RTX 2080 so not quite the broad 100% figure we've been thrown but that's still impressive especially for the price which is the key component.

I'm really hoping it's not a paper launch but deep down I am preparing for the worst. I have the morning off on the 17th and the 24th so I'll be up early to try my best.

Meanwhile, depending on who you listen to, Big Navi is expected to be between 15% and 50% faster than a 2080 Ti.

Looking at the gap between each variation makes not surprise that there would eventually be a Ti especially with their history towards refreshing the stack in 10 to 12 months. I just would have expected a little more time to roll around until there was an official dump of this information even if it was an oopsie. More Vram, more cores and higher speed memory no doubt.

Makes me kind of want to jump on to a 3090 now and forget about the next two years since that's essentially the limit on GA 102 because, knowing me, I'll buy a 3080 and then go through the hassle or selling it to get a 3080 Ti when it releases and/or the sky really will start to fall and 10GB of memory won't be enough once we start seeing next gen console ports although I remain skeptical.

At first it really didn't do anything for me but then I watched the ZiggyD video which showcased more of the league and it really changed my mind. It's like Incusion and Betrayal got in to blender with Ocean's Eleven.

Not only will this game be free but so will Remnant which is a great game in its own right and has no business being free.

That said I really hope Intel makes a strong comeback with 10nm... if it ever ships for HEDT. Ryzen 4000 should be around the corner.

Not only is their 10nm dream essentially dead but it seems as though their 7nm process will be delayed by at least six months and it's to the point where they're either currently being or will shortly be sued via a class action from investors for not disclosing this information (had they known) during their last earning report. Intel shares continue to fall and it's expected that 7nm won't be ready until late 2021 or 2022 at which point AMD will likely be diving in to 5nm.

"Massive price cut"

9900K still pricier than 10700K... xD

Oh Intel... never change.

It serves a somewhat niche purpose for someone who is on a Z390 with a i3 or i5 but has a more limited budget instead of having to factor in a new Z470 motherboard. The performance between the two is fairly even.

For the person wanting to jump ship in to Comet Lake for the Rocket Lake upgrade path which is where things might finally get a little interesting to Intel it's a bit silly though.

What a mixed bag. On one hand the engine scales incredibly well with additional cores/threads but on the other hand it seems like there are some serious QA and potential driver issues when it comes to GPUs. Last I read the Vega 56 does worse than a RX 570.

Rogan was a Quake addict once upon a time.

By Rogan’s own admission, he’s been “addicted” to Quake in the past, and has seemingly dived back into it recently. After setting up a game room in his studio in 2019, Rogan posted that playing Quake Champions “might as well be sugar-coated heroin mixed with cocaine and meth.” He’s also said that during the ’90s, he spent $10,000 per month in order to set up a high-speed internet connection in order to improve his internet speeds to play Quake.

“When you’re completely addicted to playing Quake for 8-10 hours a day, and you go, ‘there’s a solution? What is this solution? A T1 line? Let’s do that,'” he said back in a 2016 episode of his podcast.

I think every person who played Vermintide had the idea in their head as to what it would be like to have a tide set in the 40k universe and I for one am incredibly happy to see that's exactly what we're getting from the same team.

It'll be fun playing as the ever expendable Imperial Guard too.

Good grief. I'm sure all the real talent is already got new resumes printed up and are heading for the exits. I imagine Ubisoft will be dead inside of 5 years with this sort of moonbat stupidity.

You don't have to worry about failing to uphold those metrics if there's no one around to hold them to it.

Worth it even if only to play through the class stories. Not as robust as KotOR but still some good story telling and RPG elements which can be done entirely on your own.

Not bad for a game which has been declared dead at least a dozen times.

Even if they are late to the table and lets say these performance rumors are true it's only going to be good news for the patient consumer in the end. We haven't seen a successfully competitive high-end GPU from AMD since, what, Grenada? Fiji Pro?

The recent leak which some are torn between being a 3080 and 3080 Ti was "only" 30% higher in performance compared to a 2080 Ti so I say let them fight and lets hope you don't need a nuclear power plant to power whatever AMD throws out and they keep the costs relatively low to spark some competitive choices much like they did with Ryzen.

Interesting that they would give him credit from BCS but not BB which is where I'm sure a lot of people were introduced to him.

Either way, I can't get enough of the pollo man so this might be the first Far Cry game I check out.
