Anyone notice that the 3090 at least will be using GDDR6X memory? That memory is in very short supply at the present time and I do not expect that to change much this year at least. So my guess is the bulk of 3090 purchases will be at astronomical prices on Ebay due to limited availability.

Definitely interested in the 30xx series, and would prefer a 3080ti as well.
I'm personally happy to wait and see; I'm curious about failure rates. These power draining monsters; not feeling the need to early adopt and will wait a few months after release when some decent board partner cards have been tested, reviewed and there isn't some disaster that occurs with the product quality.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 will get 24GB GDDR6X VRAM, & RTX 3080 to get 10GB VRAM
*sigh*

So the 3090 is obviously meant to replace the Titan, and the 3080 the 2080. This seems to indicate that there will not be a 3080ti at launch and leave a huge performance/price gap in the card lineup. I feel like this is an attempt to force people to either spend way more on the 3090 than they wanted, or double-dip by buying a 3080 now, then upgrade again later to the ti. Most smart business decisions are really shitty consumer decisions.

I'm only interested in the 3080ti, so I guess I'll have to wait until sometime next year, which means I'll also be putting my first playthrough of CP2077 on hold until then.

I feel angry and dejected.
Just get the Geforce Now subscription and you get unlimited play time and RTX lighting on the games that support it and that they support for 5 bucks a month, until the price changes. They are going to host CP 2077 at the game's launch. The system actually works pretty well and I can play on a 10 year-old laptop.

Nvidia's dGPU market share went from 71% 2 years ago to 80%. And that's part of why Ampere's prices will be utterly historic record economic depression denying stupid.

I've seen multiple conflicting rumors that the 3090 will cost either $1400 or $2000. $2k is immediately out of the question (though more likely), but $1400 might sway me. I guess we'll see on 9/1.
It's going to be $2k, there's absolutely no competition for this card.

I'd go 2k if I had to bet. It's the next Titan.
Definitely $2k or higher, this is not a "gamer" card.
Not saying that there won't be someone out there who will purchase it only for gaming, but those peeps are rarer than frog hair.

I think it'll depend on how performance slots in, I'm waiting on benchmarks before I get upset. I do generally get the Ti variant every 2nd or 3rd generation but if the 3080 slots in really well then /shrug if they release an updated Ti variant later on.
