RTX 3090 Launches Thursday

NVIDIA announces their top-of-the-line RTX 3090 cards will arrive on Thursday, calling them "BFGPU"s intended for creators, researchers and extreme gamers. Here's what they say this means to gaming enthusiasts:
For gamers pushing the limits, the GeForce RTX 3090 is also the first GPU that lets you connect, play, capture, and watch in 8K HDR. That’s an insane 4x the pixels of 4K and 16x the pixels of 1080p.

For 4K gaming, the GeForce RTX 3090 is about 10-15% faster on average than the GeForce RTX 3080, and up to 50% faster than the TITAN RTX.

Since we built GeForce RTX 3090 for a unique group of users, like the TITAN RTX before it, we want to apologize upfront that this will be in limited supply on launch day. We know this is frustrating, and we’re working with our partners to increase the supply in the weeks to come.

Confused... didn't this launch already? I mean there are 3090 cards on ebay being scalped right now. People with pics of successful orders of nvidia's 3090 FE.

8K gaming is the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. Maybe on the RTX 5080 it’ll be relevant. Just show me solid 1440p/144Hz for a reasonable price. For the 3090 I’d expect 4K/144Hz.

8K gaming...hahaha. I’ll just wait for the way more advanced 16K monitors that allow me to see the molecules in each dust particle during a shoot-out. Can’t wait.

For clarity, is it true that these stability issues are only affecting the 3rd party overclocked cards, correct?

Meaning there are supposedly no issues with the Nvidia 3080 Founders Edition cards?

Curious.

Yes if you are talking the "capacitor issue".

It's a bit more complicated than this... Not all capacitors 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.

I was just poking some fun at nVidia.

Why poke fun at Nvidia when they're smart enough to get suckers to vastly overpay for a video card? There are the people who deserve to be mocked.
And in the end they get to mock us because they wipe their ass with $1500 while we sweat it out. They are smart because there are people that want to buy it, full stop. They maybe dumb that they don't make a higher priced card yet "for gamers".

That’s a good question that I doubt you’ll be able to find a straight answer for.
Nvidia’s 3080 FE (founders edition) cards are all built to Nvidia’s spec. I’m sure there are instances where the FE has issues but it does not seem to be the one causing all the ruckus.

The first round of aftermarket cards (aftermarket is not the correct term) built by EVGA, MSI, ASUS (and more) have changed their card due to issues (stability?). The newer revisions have different MLCC and SP-CAP (you may also see the term POSCAP) capacitor configurations.
This issue may have cropped up because these cards are “factory overclocked.”

Nvidia’s new driver applies to all of the 3080 gpu’s no matter who made the board, unless the vendor makes their own specialized “tweaked” driver.

An aside
Several years ago, AMD launched the RTX 480, only to discover that some of its cards pulled more power from the 75W PCIe lane than was strictly in spec. The company was able to fix the problem with a driver update that actually improved RX 480 performance by a small degree in several games. src

Hopefully someone here will point to a trustworthy source that explains whether the FE is immune to this issue or not.

One has to have indeed both a big wallet and a big not really ego. I wouldn't call that an ego. One would have to actually feel miserable to pay 1500 dollars for a device for which the difference between it and the cheaper one is in an order of 50%(Or indeed to be so filthy rich that they dont notice) whereas the differences on screen are much less noticeable. If one wanna flaunt his new rig playing in smooth 4k, it really takes a niche kind of friends.At least if one wanna flaunt their money, it should be on something less confidential :p Well maybe in the most well-off milieus, this kind of thing is the norm but I can't really help but feel sad for these dudes is that's the highest peak of their existence. It's truly pathetic. Like "having" something would make one special. If they think so, they don't really have an ego, much rather a narcissistic wound that never healed. Ahhh to be loved and to understand the meaning of existence.

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