    That looks terrible :eek:
    It makes that Zotac with the extra fans not look so bad :D

    Edit - the Zotac looks equally terrible :p

    Yeah, that's what sensible people would do, but I'm not a patient person when it comes to shiny things :D

    I guess we will find out in a couple of weeks if my patience holds out...

    I rather have my 11GB 2080ti over a 8GB 3070....

    Am really interested in seeing some 4K or even 3440x1440 max settings tests done with this 8GB 3070 in MS FS 2020 where I know it uses over 10GB vram on my 2080ti

    Waiting for a 3080Ti and AMD to show myself, something a little in-between ;)

    Seeing 2080 Tis I'm Facebook for £600+ personally like everyone is saying the 3070 matches or exceeds it I wouldn't pay anymore than £350 for a 2080 Ti now if the 3070 is faster across the board and not just matches it £300 tops. I think the 3070/3080 are going to cripple 2nd hand prices all the way from from GTX 1080 which was still a £250-£300 GPU on the bay only a week ago.

    Anyone going from a Vega 56 or similar performing card to a 3070/3080? My V56 is doing a good job at 1440p but I'm playing slightly older games (Forza 3, the Tomb Raider trilogy), and it might struggle >60/100 FPS with more demanding games. DLSS and a card considerably more powerful than my V56 on a G-SYNC compatible screen sound like a tempting proposition.

    Why? its toally different RAM> like DDR3 / DDR4.

    There will be alot of 2080TI owners trying to justify their £1200+ purchase.

    Ill be going either 3070 or 3080 from V64. Its the first time ive felt the cost to do so is worth it.

    Sorry I neglected to quote what I was replying to, my bad.

    The RTX IO allows the card to pull data directly from storage and decompress it into GPU memory, relieving the load from the CPU and decompressing far faster than it could anyway.

    Basically it's similar to the storage subsystem in the PS5.

    I was saying that, whilst I still believe all this talk of PCIe4 making any significant difference to GPU performance is nonsense, RTX IO could well be a different matter.

    What actually happens when VRAM is full up, wont the extra speed actually negate any issues with "only" 10GB VRAM?

    Are they trying to emulate some sort of push pull configuration?

    Also this is going to cause clearance issues with any RAM modules and CPU coolers :|. What a joke of a design.

    I think its a last minute addition because the card was obviously getting too hot under testing. Makes me worry about getting any AIB card tbh. but lets see. I've decent case flow. and its going to be winter....

    Funny yesterday I was getting help sorting spec in a new PC. With a 2070 SUPER O/C at £529. Now EBay has plenty of 2080TI’s starting at £550. Will try to have the patience to see 3070 reviews and go from there.
