Hopefully this will bring some much needed quality control to Bethesda's games. Also, Microsoft, please force Bethesda to use a new engine for future Fallout/ES games. It's time to retire Gamebryo. I really don't see a downside to this news.

The possible downside I see is all games going MS store and very hard to next to impossible to mod unless the devs graciously give players tools to do so.

Does that beat Flint, MI?

Depends how fast they fix the problem ( hint: Flint still isn't fixed after what? 6 years? ) and if anyone has been poisoned with lifetime health consequences ( hint: probably zero since it's not a poisoned water issue ).

Still goddamn funny tho.

Gotta love to see "Two Faced" Sweeney supposedly flail desperately to get free of his own trap in a pathetic attempt to look like a victim in a situation he has engineered himself.

To think I've had 7 flawless years with my old HD5850. Not a single driver hickup. It's now in a buddy's computer and even after 4 years without driver support, it still chugs along without problems with it's 2016 driver and plays pretty much whatever he throws at it on Win7, including emulators, often dreaded by AMD GPU owners.

It's not that they can't do decent driver support... I really wonder what happened to fuck up their record after such a flawless streak, cuts in the driver department perhaps?

Whoever conducted that attack should be charged with, what is it in the US?

When you don't mean to, but your actions accidentally cause someone's death.

Manslaughter?

A computer hardware outlet in the US that sells 100s of Nvidia cards daily said they had 3 3080 cards to sell, for 10 stores.

Can you say PAPER LAUNCH?

November 5... so, if the Presidential election doesn't go the way you hope (whatever that might be), you can hopefully lose yourself in the PS for the next four years.

That's a done deal. Either way the US citizenry loses while corps, banks and rich fucks win.

Yep, undercutting your competition by 20%, THAT is aggressive pricing.

Nvidia and AMD could learn a lesson or 2 from this on the GPU front.

I don't know what it's like where you live but where I live AMD is generally 40%+ cheaper than Intel and Nvidia. What lesson does AMD need to learn?

40%?!? You must have missed the 5000 series launch. They either matched prices with Nvidia at the same performance bracket or just slightly undercut them by a few dozen dollars.

That's hardly 20%, much less "40%".

"self-inflicted and self-fixable"

Totally in agreement, they engineered this from the start, then it backfired on them and now they're crying for mommy.

Well boohoo! Grow up Epic.

Doesn't matter what a reviewer's opinion is anyways. The numbers are what they are.

Yup and for a node shrink, they suck, a lot. Samsung's 8nm is really a 10nm++, no wonder. It's called a half node shrink in the industry, not a "full" node.

Hopper is supposedly going to be on TSMC's 5nm, that would be 1 full node and a half from Samsung's 10nm++. Now that will be something.

30% better performance at about 60% of the price... I call that a very good deal.
What I don't like is the lack of video RAM. This is why I will be waiting for the 3070 Ti or 3080 Ti.

Forget the 60% figures, the cheapest are around 100$ higher than MSRP. The perf is FAR from what was claimed and the perf per watt was just utter horseshit.

Gamers Nexus wasn't impressed.
Hardware Unboxed wasn't impressed.
Linus wasn't impressed.

Only Jayz"Nvidia"2Cents and Digital"Cherrypicking"Foundry were.

Impressive... Most impressive.

No, really, this IS a big leap forward (at the price of lots and lots of power consumption/heat). I will be waiting for either the 3070 Ti with 16 GB or the 3080 Ti with 20 GB, though. The RAM is the tender spot of the RTX 3000s - this is where Nvidia's greed got the better of them. But the RTX gpus are nothing but monsters, that's for sure.

Very far from Nvidia's outlandish claims... Who would've thought?

Perf 2x? ( Hardware Unboxed data )
~30% avg on 2080ti @ 4k
~70% avg on 2080 @ 4k

Power efficiency 2x? ( Techpowerup data )
2080 85%
3080 100%

Yeah... As usual marketing = propaganda.

Nope, probably gonna wait for Hopper.

One unprotected shot like this won't permanently damage your hearing ( altho it might trigger tinnitus if you already mistreated your ears with loud music in your past, I know that from experience ). Multiple over time will probably get you tinnitus.

A sustained bombardment, whether on the sending or receiving end without hearing protection will destroy it in no time flat.
