    Well tbh it looks like every other AIB GPU I've ever seen, really :p

    I'm finding it really hard to get aroused by a lump of plastic with three fans :p

    +1 I never really considered one as a PC alternative in the past but I quite fancy a console in the living room and will probably get one perhaps even as an alternative to a new GPU/PC upgrade soon if the GPU price insanity doesn't abate.

    But, but...it's an ASUS card...and it's a 3080 Ti, and, and it's all new and shiny!!!

    Yep, just another rectangular box with fans in it, innit.

    RTX 3080 Super Ti Founders Edition. To go with your 14nm+++++++++ Core I9 10900KS, Asus ROG Strix Evolution XVIIII, TeamGroup RGB Royal Gold DRR4, Noctua DF17-4654 Croma Notchy Fanned Cooler and don't forget the self changing Corsair Super Gaming 7600000 DPI RGB Mouse with matching RGB Mouse Mat.
    Did I miss anything? :)

    Tell that to every game developer that's released a title (including early access) in the past 5yrs so they can enable it. DLSS might be useful is some cases and may indeed become something special but don't be a sucka to Nvidia marketing.

    You say that but I can run mine at 2100/8000 with 96% power and it sips <260W and still achieves the same boost. It surprised me anyway!

    SLI is a waste of time. Just ask Kaapstad. But then again if you are into benchies like him, the I say why stop at 2, buy 4!

    Don't think SLI supports 4 cards anymore, they stopped that few years ago - max is 2 now.

    Marketing at its finest.

    "Hey look guys, look at our 7nm!"

    Consumers: "7nm of what??"

    Marketing: *Pikachu Face*

    Like how Intel's 10nm and TSMC's 7nm is actually the same, just different marketing name because the sizing term refers to two different measurements. It's the same crap Steve from Gamers Nexus has been complaining about for a while now - companies who make statements with no basis of comparison - like a GPU manufacturer who writes on the box "50% cooler!" or AMD's on their Ryzen 3000 CPU's advertising them as 7nm when part of the CPU is still on 12nm.

    Yeah its stupid, it would be misleading if there was some actual standard of measurement they had to adhere to. Near sure i read somewhere amd\intel\nvidia also count transistors differently as well. So presumably they count it in a way that gives them a bigger number.
