I wonder if these $1500 things have the same crappy capacitors like the 3080. Mmmm... good value for your money!

It's a bit more complicated than this... Not all capacitators are of the same quality. This is why currently some 3080s are stable while others are not. But the change of the boost (-50 MHz in the latest drivers) seems to fix the problem for most people. And this seems to prove that the 3080 does not need to be overclocked - it already is (was?) out of the box.

The game pass is the Netflix of gaming - I think we might see one more XBox hardware in 6 or 7 years or so, but his would be the final hardware. The games pass games service will be the future for Microsoft and I would not be surprised if they will offer it on every gaming hardware capable of running the games - including the PS... 6? Sony is going for aggressive exclusivity and a massively walled garden while Microsoft is simply moving away from this to be able to sell access to games to a much bigger market.

-50 MHz boost - this is what the new drivers seem to do to stabilize the RTX3000 cards. A bit of underclocking - who would have guessed?

This is why I waited - I want a fast card with at least 12, better 16 GB Video RAM. I hope AMD is really not just great on paper. In the end, I will either buy an RTX 3080 with 20 GB or something AMD will be offering if it is about as good (and hopefully running not as hot as the RTX 3080s).

Played Dune 2 but never Dune 1, played Warcraft 2 but never the first one, but I played C&C 1, 2, and 3, and then I stopped. I played some Red Alert, too, back in the days.
And even back then, my then girlfriend told me that I would be too old to play those games... DAAAAAMMMMNNNN... I AM OLD! It's not just a feeling!

I only played 1 for the first time about a year ago, and I did not think it looked that dated so I don't get what they are going on about, it is a 13 year old game after all. The current industry standard for a remaster seems to be just some slightly better textures, and perhaps an extra mission or two.

Or to take and "remaster" a visually inferior console port that lacked better texture and even does not contain all the missions of the original pc game. Yes, I'm looking at you, Crysis!

I'm going to kickstart something revolutionary.... A streaming service... SERVICE! Get all streaming services in ONE service! Revolutionary idea, right? Too simple, of course. Same with cloud gaming - I will offer a cloud gaming service that gives access to ALL cloud gaming services in one simple, single software or "app". Again: too simple, I know.

This shit makes me want to buy games on CD-/DVD-/Blu-Ray-ROMs again.

When they bought ZeniMax, did you feel the earth trembling? Did you feel the quake? Do you think gaming is now doomed and the landscape of games is turning into a wasteland? Do you expect some legal fallout between the studios and Microsoft as one result of the deal?

Okay, this is big news, indeed. I hope Microsoft uses its power for the best and - as some have written here before - FORCES ZeniMax to use a new engine for the next Elder Scrolls and Fallout games.
Also: Microsoft's gamepass is becoming more and more attractive... I always said I don't want to rent games but if the price and the offered variety of games is right... Never say never, right?

Wow, this is cool. But weren't they showing off ray-tracing in their trailers? Would that be feasible (even at 1080p) on a GTX 1060?

Software raytracing on a GTX 1060? Yes, at about 5 fps at 720p.

No, really. It is impossible to pull off real ray-tracing on this card at any acceptable framerate even at VERY low resolutions.

I just saw someone doing a review of the new Nvidia 3080 and they actually got this game to run at 25-30 fps on ultra with that card. Good reason to avoid this game.

It even made test pcs turn themselves off with 750 watt PSUs. This crappy "remaster" makes the 3080 go to its limit for those 25 to 30 fps. It is really ridiculous and not even producing amazing quality graphics.

I really have to wonder about these tech magazines that constant spout unconfirmed nonsense. Like in the one talking about Gigabyte cards coming out, they consistently refer to the 3070 being faster than the 2080ti and I after looking at the 3080 test results that compared it to the 2080ti I have great doubts that it is true.
Personally I see the 3070 somewhere between a 2080 super and the 2080ti at best. Nothing worse than constantly spouting marketing nonsense.

I will decide if it is marketing nonsense AFTER the release of the 3070.
Also: the 3080 is about as fast as many tech magazines thought it would be, and it is almost in all cases CHEAPER than they expected, too.

Wow. But China is also restricting people to what China thinks is best (like more and more western countries do, too). Let's just say that in different ways and to different degrees in the different countries, the freedom of opinions is getting smaller pretty much everywhere on this planet.

So - leave Earth for Mars?
