    Gsync helps a lot at the moment with my 1080 and frames.

    Quite impressed. 9/10 games I still more or less max IQ at 1440p.

    Currently Division 2 gets me around 50 fps using DX11 (as DX12 crashes) but with Gsync no issues at all.

    Smooth.

    Control I played over Xmas and maxed that out too.

    Freesync is one thing I'm looking forward to with the new nvidia cards. Currently my gtx 1080 can't do freesync over hdmi but the newer nvidias will work with my screen.

    The 2 games I have been playing lately Red dead redemption and Borderlands 3 both are very demanding at 1440p.

    50fps feels fine on red dead but I do feel like my 120hz is being wasted. I'm really looking forward to a big upgrade next gen.

    I'm still kind of hoping that with the launch of the PS5/XBX it forces a drop in GPU prices and/or a step up in performance.

    Surely if we can buy an £500 console with ~12 Teraflops Nvidia/AMD are going to have a hard time selling a similarly powered video card for £500 on it's own before you factor in the rest of the computer!

    That is not reasonable at all, it should be able to last 2-3 years at least. Console gamers pay the same amount that lasts for 6-7 years and that includes cpu, ram etc.

    Yes you could say that consoles have always been a better deal but around the time of the Radeon HD 7950/70 pc gaming got really close to the value of consoles. You could build a gaming rig for £600 that blew away any console and would last for a few years. That initiated a pc gaming boom and somewhere along the line things got out of control and pc gaming lost the plot.

    That together with covid19 and hopefully we will see the RTX 3070 at around $399. My assumption is that the 3070 will be within 10% the performance of the 2080Ti (likely closing the gap and beating it in time) and have much better Ray Tracing performance.

    Given the relative power and pricing of the upcoming games consoles that's what I'm also hoping for and why I'm holding off any upgrades for now!

    It feels like a big ask right now but market forces being what they are I think video cards will need to hit that point if they want to tempt gamer's looking to upgrade away from the consoles

    Sorry, I wasn't clear. I meant it will last me 9-12 months at a minimum if I decide to upgrade for whatever reason to 3xxx. If I choose not to go down that route, it will last years, just like my 1070 has.

    Out of interest are you 120hz or 60hz?

    I hope you're right but I think prices will go up because of all of this, unless you're willing to wait for prices to come back down like we had to for crypto.

    I'm not so sure. I think selling mid-high end video cards at their current prices (>£400) might be unsustainable if the economy keeps heading the way it is just now.

    I don't see many been willing to drop a months rent on a luxury like an expensive video card in the current climate.

    We will see at what nvidia price the cards at. If it is $399 and then Gibbo wants £500+ then we know what’s up :p

    I will likely order direct from nvidia and go founders edition now that they have decent coolers on them. Those coolers should be plenty good for a 3070.

    Haha. No problem. Yep indeed I am, unless it turns out to offer silly upgrade in price for performance at which point I may not bother and just get a PS5 on release rather than waiting a year or two for some exclusives to build up. Either way I am happy :)

    More likely £200+ unless you sell before the 3000 series is out.

    Its not the economy buying the cards though. Think about all those people sat at home who are not going to the pub, not going to a restaurant, shopping, travelling to work, fuel AND not going on holiday. People with jobs working from home will have the cash to spend because at the moment they are spending very little. The new cards will be priced high they always are regardless of what console comes out.

    I'll be getting the 3080Ti no matter what as well, primarily for VR performance. Hopefully it won't backfire on me like the 2080Ti did a couple of years ago with them space invaders.

    He won't be 'making' anything, unless he's selling it at a profit.

    I'm always hearing things like 'a 2080Ti will only cost me £500 once I sell my 2070S'. No. It will cost you £500 plus the opportunity cost of the sale proceeds of the 2070S.

    I get that people are trying to justify this stuff in their own minds to feel better about spooging £x hundred on a GPU, but people need to understand the concepts of disposal proceeds, total cost of ownership, and opportunity cost.
