Man Anno 1800 and everything needs FSR2 ASAP - what an amazing scaling shader.. pretty mindblowing actually
I mostly use my PC for work. To that end, the beefy 3080 Ti GPU hasn’t afforded me any great benefits since I mostly use Google’s services to write documents, check emails and transfer files. Any of the best laptops give me the same functionality I currently enjoy. But having that extra computational headroom ensures that I can have a multitude of apps and programs running without worrying about my PC buckling.
Uh, a 3080 TI doesn't add anything to your "computational headroom"
And this guy is a TECH blogger?
He went for a Intel Core i7-11700KF 8-Core 3.6GHz as well.. if he wanted "computational headroom" he should have gone Ryzen
Seriously.. from top to bottom this article is a headscratcher
FSR 2.0 looks like a real game changer in benchmarks and comparisons I've been watching today. Performance AND visuals are comparable to DLSS, while being hardware agnostic. This is good for everyone. More choices are better for consumers, and one standard is easier for developers to implement.
It sounds like that 3080ti is totally useless to him, unless he's also doing some video transcoding.
I admit I did the same thing on my workstation, except I went gonzo with the CPU: 5950X for real 'computational headroom' and a 3070ti which really doesn't get used for anything on that rig except for video transcoding. To be fair the cheaper 3060 transcodes just as fast because they use the same transcode chip (and I've tested this with a 3060 I bought for a friend and burned in on my workstation), but my rationale is that 3070ti is my backup card in case the 3080 in my gaming PC takes a dump. I can always throw my old GTX 1080 into the workstation if I have to steal the 3070ti.
