    Think i'm tempted to go 3080ti preorder this time round.

    They must have learned their lesson right?

    I don't want to play space invaders.

    I will probably go with a 3080.

    But if a 3080ti comes in at £750 I could be crazy enough to bite!

    I'm only at 1440p so probably would be way overkill.

    yeah absolutely, I know but I bought my 980ti on release for £500, £500 more would have got you a great cpu, mono and ram as well. And I’m assuming you have the rest of the guts from previous builds.

    but I stand by even a £500 gpu these days being high end. A 5700xt is only £300 (edit - was) and probably not even 10% of gamers have better than that, probably not 5%.

    £1000 for a gpu is mental money, and if you can afford it good on yer but that is more than high end. That’s the highest. The zenith. The 1%. And you don’t need to be in 1% to have a high end build.

    Would i be right assuming if you want a new gpu on or near its release date you need to pre-order?

    OTOH the message "Don't buy Turing now, Ampere is just around the corner!" has been repeated here for well over a year now.

    I probably wouldn't advise anyone to buy a 2080Ti right now either, to be fair, but for all we know consumer Ampere cards won't appear until next year.

    It's not like AMD are about to steal the market.

    Just watch. Not gonna be a penny under £1500 :D

    I bet Jensen's is going to go hard on the comparison to consoles. "puny consoles can't even hold 1440p 30, meanwhile we get 4k 60 rtx"

    Joke of it is DLSS is arguably a better platform choice for consoles

    I don’t think a 3080Ti will be £1.5k that would be double the cost of a 3080, you’re in Titan territory there i.e. they have a product to cater for that special segment

    Yea. I don’t get why people think it will be £1500. The base model will be under a grand, mark my words.

    Just think the jump in price, relatively, from the 1000 to 2000 series is worrying people that without competition Nvidia will continue the trend. Hope you're right though!

    Was that ever determined definitively? I know Micron RAM was suspected, but then tested revealed that models with Samsung RAM also had the issue. I don’t think Nvidia ever said what the root cause was.
