You’re friends with a gpu?!
On another note… mine arrived too!! It’s a really well built (and beautiful) but of tech.
an actual good looking card!!
If the RTX 3080 12GB card releases soon, looks set to be a pretty well rounded GPU, with more VRAM and wider memory bus, but with higher power usage.
But I think I'll still hope to buy a RTX 3080 FE (10GB) at £650, will these still be available?
Not 54 amps, I pull around 500W from the wall gaming on a watercooled 5900x, 3080 system.Lol my Seasonic Prime TX-650 is around £200 on certain website. What is this madness? Think it only cost me £90 cause it was on offer on the same website.
It can only do 54 Amps on the 12v rail, would be interesting to know how many amps the RTX 3080 actually requires (assuming no overclocking).
Because there is a demand for cards with over 8GB of VRAM (which is why AMD offers 16GB RDNA2 cards). Not fussed myself, as GFX cards with extra VRAM aren't usually priced for value.
I'd rather not get into a big debate about VRAM amounts tbh, I'm sure that's a topic that's been done to death.
It's possible the 12GB variant could be targeted to compete against the RX 6900XT, since the performance of the RTX 3080 (10GB) is only a bit behind it.
I'd guess the RTX 3080 FE with 12GB will cost about another £200, so £850, roughly in-between the price of the RTX 3080 (10GB) and RTX 3080 TI. The mining performance is reportedly higher, so that can't be good for prices.
but will Nvidia bother to sell the 10gb FE version anymore? The 12gb can’t really be that much more expensive to build but the leaked prices are a big jump.
So I lucked out and managed to acquire a 3080 FE this week. Much how I remember when I used to have a 3070 FE, the fans make a "hiss" at low RPM as evidenced in this video:
I'm fairly pedantic because I strive for a very quiet ITX build. Have you guys found this sound goes away / you stop caring / don't notice it? It makes me want to try trading the card for an AIB.
