    I fully agree. Nvidia themselves stated around the 3060 launch that “Ampere Next” was scheduled for 2022 and “Ampere Next Next” for 2024. Seems real un-inventive til you realise the next card is called Ampere Next, and not Lovelace (the confirmed name of Ampere’s successor)?

    2080 and 2080 Super were both on Turing architecture. The Ampere name-change was the next-gen jump. And I saw before that newest batch of 30 series laptop variants are curiously named 30xx Super - that little detail leaked at the start of June. While that specific range is laptop only, it seems way more likely to me, that the next RTX desktop variants will also be named 30xx Super, rather than jumping to 40 series so abruptly.

    The 3080 Super could conceivably turn out to be based on the original (cancelled) 20GB 3080Ti SKU (based on 3090). Maybe we’ll see a 48GB 3090 or Titan Super to bring workstation-tier vram capacity to consumers. :cry:

    If that up being the case, they would have a somewhat sensible reason to raise prices, and have a whole product range to test the water on price hikes before the 4000 cards, which would still be a fair ways off into the future.

    Good to hear. How's BF4 going for you? Practice makes perfect my friend for 2042! Might get my card as a late xmas pressie at this rate lmao! Changing the subject, off to Silverstone this weekend for the F1 GP. Got tickets for Sundays race as a 60th birthday present. Was supposed to be last years race but because of the pandemic they held the tickets over for this years race. Going up with my youngest son so should be a blast. Come on Max!!!

    Card arrived in yesterday, 2 days ahead of the scheduled delivery date. Just stuck it in the PC there. It's a tight squeeze even in my Coolermaster HAF 932, I had about 5mm to play with, I thought it wasn't going to fit at first. About the same size as the 2070 super, just a bit longer. The packaging is very plain, no stickers for the case or anything. At this price point they could throw in a few stickers.

    Thanks to everyone at overclockers, fingers crossed for everyone still waiting.

    They need to release the 50/50ti class cards first so I doubt we'll be seeing any supers especially since we already got Ti versions. They could possibly release a Titan but it would really need to be on TSMC 7nm to live up to the Titan branding of power and efficiency.

    RTX4000 series should arrive towards the end of next year as I doubt they will want to wait to long and let RDNA3 steal the outright performance crown.

    Reading this thread again I'm begining to wonder whether the orders placed on or around launch day are going to be fulfilled by the time the RTX40xx is launched, and I do wonder what nVidia's attitude is going to be if cards which haven't been supplied and never will be, will be one of magnanimity and an upgrade to the new models at no extra cost.

    I don't think nvidia will say or do anything regarding AIB card supply.

    just read nvidia might stop sending 3080 chips to AIB's for the month of July and maybe august, as there are so many second hand cards for sale, concern over a glut. this is beyond sick if its true, they should at least fill all back orders.

    Why should Nvidia be bothered about the second hand market which they get nothing from, when they can sell every 3080 chip/GPU they make?

    With all the talk of an impending 40xx series coming out soon, I really wonder just how any other industry could actually get away with something like this.

    I mean, seriously…imagine a whole swathe of customers ordering a product and within six months, customers who haven’t even had that order fulfilled are told “your product is end of life and probably won’t be produced much any more.”

    Even worse than that, a further three months later, those people that jumped ship and bought an even newer and more expensive version of the product being told that even THAT one is going to be surpassed.

    I fully understand the need for continuous innovation and regular product releases etc, but SERIOUSLY…would consumers in any other industry really find this an acceptable practice? I’m not trying to get at OCUK here, it’s more at nVidia (and possibly AIB partners).

    I just think that this whole process has turned me off buying components. The way they’ve handled this, with production delays (whether these were in their control or not), the significant mispricing of their MSRP, and the leap towards the 40xx series and the 30xx series isn’t even cold yet. It just smacks of “screw our customers. They’ll buy whatever we pump out.”

    Things like this are why I’m turning into a socialist.

    The problem for a company like Nvidia is they are obviously working to a long term schedule and just because one part of the company is having problems doesn't mean that development stops in other areas. I don't see how they can even make the decision to delay the sale of the next generation because they've probably made promises to other companies and shareholders.
    It is a bit of a mess. They will probably just try to get through this period and hope for the best. They could maybe win back some good will by having a discount voucher for people that bought their current generation. I don't think they will though, they have market dominance and don't have to pander to anyone.

    Until you want to buy new components. It's a hard industry to boycott because the bottom line is you kind of need their stuff.

    @Rev85 You can't stop progress... Also I'm sure many like myself are in the same boat, I'm running off a slow working GTX 980 showing problems. I recently upgraded from an i5 Sandybridge to X5800 (entire new computer), once I get my 3080 I look forward to not having to upgrade for at least another 5 years. 40xx series doesn't matter to me at this point.

    The 4000 series is a way off yet the talk has been Nvidia giving the 3000 series a mid-life refresh with some 'Super' variants which will be the time when some of the existing lines like the 3070 and 3080 will go EOL and the new Super cards come in with higher MRSP lol.

    As for customers who haven't had their order fulfilled and getting told the product they order is now end of life that's already happened on a couple of SKU's already.

    Going socialist won't fix your GPU issues. Money talks at the end of the day.

    All this 4000 series talk is bonkers! It's all chinese whispers and rumour. I guarantee that none of the AIBs will have any 4000 series visibility on road maps yet so any "news" can only have come out of Nvidia or their fabricators and those guys are more secretive than the CIA in general so I think it's all BS. The earliest any believable rumours usually emerge is six months, which is roughly when the AIBs get told to given a buying schedule for current chipsets.
