    The supers in the past have not been to bad but this time around i think Nvidia will struggle performance wise and price will just kill it.

    A Titan V is still better at professional work than any Turing or Ampere card so yes the old Volta card is exceptional value for money.

    They are stating no nvlink on the 3090 supers so useless to many that want to sli/nvlink for work and some for gaming. So I don't see the point of bringing out a so called top card with a missing top card feature.

    It does not use the full core, the 3090 that is. There is a slight cut on some bits from the full GA102 core on the Shaders, TMU and ROPS. Talking 2.5% on the cores for example 10752 Full fat GA102 @ vs 3090 @ 10496 which in actual performance would translate to 1% or something. I suppose if they do up the stock power on FE model, may help with clock speeds. Overall I suppose, they got bunch of full GA102 cores on hand so may be thinking to punt them as a more expensive Super SKU then cut them down. I can fully imagine they will sell some, more so FE no issue with the market as it is.

    2.5%? Nvidia really are taking the #### if they stick that on the market and call it the 3090 Super.

    2.5% more cores AND faster 21gbps g6x memory.
    The extra memory bandwidth makes it "super" :cry:

    little thing called a chip shortage

    this is an side effect of capitalism business models. You build your manufacturing capacity to be just enough to meet or slightly undermeet demand. It's inefficient waste of money to over develop your supply if there is no matching demand.

    Because of this when demand overshoots supply it takes some time for capacity to catch up. The electronics industry just takes a lot longer to catch up than others because building new fabs takes several years

    Ampere is already a pretty poor product, another 2.5% performance is really not going to help much.

    Poor silicon (thanks Samsung).
    High power draw.
    Massive coolers.
    Poor DX12 performance.
    Overpriced.

    I think NVidia should call it a day with Ampere and put all their efforts into the next gen of cards.
