I agree with everything you said except the last bit. Well worth upgrading every gen. Do it right and costs are minimal and you get to have something new and shiny with drivers that get all the optimisations.why... hasnt the arse fallen out of 2nd hand now?
If you wanted to profit from the 3080fe, I think that boat has sailed.
Id keep the card. You never know when 4xxx will launch, what performance will be or what pricing / availability will be like.
Don't get burned like the folks that sold 2080Ti's before the 30xx launch and then couldn't get a card for months.
You be dropping a fair amount of performance going to a 2070, all to then try get more performance again with a 4xxx card?
Why not just keep the 3080FE. Its probably going to be all the card you need for a couple years yet. Maybe more if you drop some settings.
Upgrading every generation is rarely worth it.
3000 series is old news now, anyone who wanted one should have been able to source it by now. 4000 series and RDNA 3 will be where it’s at now.
Yeah, I don't think gfx cards are built to last (quite different to CPUs), makes sense to sell them every few years and replace.
Since when? Lots of people are still using pretty old cards. The 10xx series came out in 2016 odd so that’s 6 years ago and that is still pretty popular. A card like a 1080Ti is still very capable.
Thanks for that.Sure, here you go. Discussion here on Youtube:

The study discusses how temperature can affect DRAM retention time.
The study is bound to have it's detractors, of course.
