    The real reason I even got a 3080 was because it was a good price for work loads since I’ll be dipping my toes in 3D rendering and animation. That’s the ONLY reason I feel like people should consider getting this card because rtx games are cool, it’s still a bit too early for ray tracing to be adopted into every game because rtx is better for the artists, but PATH tracing is much more accurate and provides better visuals in still images so animations(visual quality) and renders look indistinguishable from a real life photograph

    Can anyone with expertise in gaming pcs give me some advice please? I want to build a pc for 1440p gaming, my budget is £1200, but I keep reading so many different things, for e.g. how it’s not the memory of the Graphics that matters etc etc so I’m in and out of wanting to buy the 3080, I just want a pc that will play games at 1440p with NO issues, not loud and for the future. Any build advice is appreciated.

    Nvidia lied this one extremely hard. It’s only +%20 sometimes %30 faster than the 2080ti False advertised and they can’t even resupply these things because they don’t know how to stop online bots. What a shit company

Considering the supply of the 30 series, is it better I just purchase a 2070 super now and upgrade some time next year... or wait maybe months for a 3070.?????? Help please!

    Owning a GTX 1080, the 20-series were not worth it. It was a weak generation of cards.And now with the 30-series only the 3090 is worth it since the 3080 only has 2GB VRAM more than mine. Let´s hope the 3080 ti has 20GB VRAM.

    I just switched to pc from xbox about a year ago. I purchased a pre built pc, its a lenovo legion. All the techno talk goes over my head so maybe someone here could help me. My system has a intel core i7-9700k@3.60GHz, 16GB ram and a nvidia gforce rtx 2060 super. My monitor is 1080p 144hz. How much of an upgrade would the rtx 3080 be? Would I need to upgrade anything else or would the graphics card be enough? So far the only time my pc has noticeably struggled is when I try to run a highly modded skyrim with enb in vr. I was going to buy a ps5 but maybe I should spend that money on the 3080 instead?
