I admit, my console exclusives are coming to the PC, even though that is a paradox in saying that.

Is it though? If it's exclusive to 1 console among 2, then it can still be released on PC without violating the first statement ^^

I just hope my 600W PSU is enough... it's gonna be close but I only have a I5 8400, the entire system only needs 60-70W so I don't see how a GPU could overload that, but we'll see that too.
From Nvidia’s website.
The FE can use 320w.
750W required (their words, not mine)
A lower power rating may work depending on system configuration.

I bet you’re gonna be replacing that psu and you system is cpu limited.

I sure as hell hope it will be CPU limited, or what else would be the point of buying a GPU that will last 5+ years generationally?

All the new Nvidia 30xx series will be in short supply till next year because Nvidia does not have that many to release. Microcenter got 100 for all their stores. That works out to 4 per store with no information on when they are getting more of them. If you really have to have one I suggest you look on Ebay and open your wallet.

According to Amazon my Zoltac 3080 is shipping to me on monday... for 699€ aka, cheaper than what I would have gotten on Nvidias own site - only even found this because a Zoltac email informed me they were selling this (I have a 1070 from Zoltac) and registered users got this info way ahead of everyone. So maybe I got lucky, but we'll see. But yeah, it was absolutely crazy, everything is sold out by now. I just hope my 600W PSU is enough... it's gonna be close but I only have a I5 8400, the entire system only needs 60-70W so I don't see how a GPU could overload that, but we'll see that too.

Remember to buy a POWERFUL and RELIABLE PSU with the RTX 3080. In a Crysis Remastered test, German game magazin PC Games Hardware ran into problems with their MSI RTX 3080. They had to exchange their Seasonic 750 watt PSU for a 1000 watt PSU and the problems were solved... So: yes. It needs power. LOTS AND LOTS of power.

Did they massively OC their (assuming they're running Intel) processor, or run some crazy test bench. 750w gold PS should be more than enough unless they've gone nuts with their setup, well beyond what an average consumer would do.

IIRC a "750 watt" power supply can't actually supply a stable 750 watts. It's always better to calculate what you need, and add about 20% to that when figuring out what watt power supply you should get.

The 3080 in that test was massively OC'd and had a 3rd 8pin connector. Also Pc Games Hardware are not professionals. I feel like I need to mention that because they don't even know what VRAM allocated vs VRAM used is.

I can never, ever, literally not ever, fathom why companies with billions of $ do not have the capacity to add a "pre-order" function to their fucking sites and make sure to meet that FIRST demand which is always there, except I know why. The 700$ price is a loss for Nvidia, I can already see the real price for the 3080 - 790€ ~ (which is 940$) and let's face it, there won't be any 3080s to buy for months.

There's probably corporate metrics floating around still, showing a net gain for the companies if they release a small amount to massive demand, then dribble more out over time. Especially for something like tech, where there is usually no direct competitor released at the same price/period. Nintendo did the same thing for the Nintendo Classic, they keep doing it for cell phones, etc. The huge problem for consumers is this directly encourages scalpers, let alone actually getting one of the item.

Also, it's probably cost prohibitive(in corporate eyes) to build up tens of millions of units in stock before the initial release day.

Yeah, even realistically a 3080 is gonna be the high end market only especially as the 3070 with custom OEM OC's and custom cooling solutions might have agreeable price and performance levels at.. 1440p, which is what matters to most people (after 1080p)

It just annoys me, I just want to click "I want this - send and bill me whenever" and not bother with it. I do NOT want to run after my purchases for months. My next card is now 100% not going to be a Founders Edition. And maybe not even an Nvidia GPU, we'll see won't we

I'll probably build a new monster desktop machine in a couple years, once AMD's new stuff is all out and prices drop.

Yeah I don't think you will be buying a 3070/3080/3090 NVIDIA gpu anywhere on the 17th .... I am still waiting on what PSU you actually need for it, hearing some scary stories (750W PSU is apparently needed)

Visit me in Germany and you will

A) love brown butter instantly (when you make with me German/Nordic Rum cookies) - yes, there is rum in them.
B) love fish even more, because who the hell puts BROWN BUTTER anywhere near a FISH... not me, you get spices, salt, super fluffy well baked fish with a bit of citrus and nothing else. Baked in a bowl like thing for 30 minutes at 145°C, skin side down obviously. Does not taste like fish, tastes like literally the best thing ever.

Makes me incredibly sad to read you got spoiled from eating fish as a child, I had the same thing happen to me with red beets. I get physically sick just from the smell.. so yea..

Could someone do a TLDNR of this without all the post graduate obscure and esoteric words.

Immersion reduces the attention to ads (duh) and immersion can be easily achieved, even without intending it by even the simplest games (I assume they tested casual plebs)
less immersion makes you pay more attention to ADS (yes, this is literally the angle this "research" takes)

With task irrelevant features they literally mean if the game is too immersive they can't shove you ads in the face.

2nd article looks like it was written by GPT-3 when tasked "write about attention of humans that are immerses vs not immersed"

Also funnily enough, article does define what "immersion" is. Immersion is an aspect of engagement and has been defined as the sense of being highly engrossed in a mediated experience across multiple dimensions

I mean.... yay?
