    you would get close as you need to factor in motherboard (vrm switching power loss), ram, drives, fans and water pumps all of that plus a cpu and the gpu could get up there or even surpass 650w.

    my 3900x with a all core 4.4ghz clock can pull around 154-179w depending on what its doing, gaming is 150ish and under synthetic load it peaks 179w

    Yep. That’s good. I may even go for a RTX 3080 this time around if they come out before the 3070 and just sell it 2-3 months before new cards hit, would probably lose no more than £100. These days people seem to be happy to pay near brand new prices for second hand gear :p:D

    I'm kind hoping the 3080 comes in around 600 quid

    Now when are the games going be released that need this kind of GPU power :p

    No point spending a £1000+ and having no games to use it for..

    I would pick one up if it did, but knowing Nvidia it will be closer to £700 and that’s for the clown edition.

    They're already here: imagine being able to run Quake 2 RTX at 4k at 100 fps rather than the 28 fps I got!

    Anyone sitting on a Turing card needs to sell it now for peanuts. They'll literally be worthless in a couple of weeks. 2080ti owners kiss £800/$800 goodbye. It's game over man!

    +1 If you didn't like the 9800 you have bizarre requirements from a GPU, essentially you will pay more for less just because something is made by Nvidia. Good luck with that philosophy.

    No :) it was on a big 2nd hand online market used here in Denmark. Fools there always think they can get full price but in case of my 1080 ti, it was actually the cheapest as the retail price for one at the time was around 120 pounds higher than what I wanted for mine. Sold it within 24 hours :D. Usually, I don't charge that much but if the market wants to pay full price I will sure as kittens let it.

    If in doubt just buy one of these, they cost around £10.
    Most of the time I'm measuring well under 400w during gaming.

    3070 probably crippled with 8GB VRAM. Nvidia will extract their ounce of flesh, 3080/3090/ti/fx extreme imba cool kid editions will be the cards to get :D

    I'm hopeful that NV are only pushed to release a rumoured 350W inferno as big Navi is a threat, though AMD will probably cripple themselves with a terrible cooler/terrible drivers on launch. Hopefully not though!

    I hope the rumours about the TDP are not true. I was planning on getting the 3080ti. Don’t think my 650W Seasonic gold psu can cut it at that high tdp.

    I thought TDP pertained to cooling requirements rather than power consumption?

    These things are awesome, love mine. I can programme my electricity price into it so it tells me how much electricity I'm buying
