    There is a massive improvement over 1000 series cards, but their "3070 is more powerful than a 2080 TI" ehhh...hold the brakes maybe.

    I'll stand by slightly

    But I expect the aib's to deliver. If I have to roll the strix though I might just pull the trigger on the 90. Or buy either and sell when ti hits.

    I'm buying any model from any manufacturer I can get my hands on. I'll sort out the 5% difference in perf between models later when stock isn't a nightmare

    Has always been quite difficult to source a Titan, and I expect Ampere to be worse than previous generations due to world climate and general interest in this gen

    So essentially, try to get 3090 next week or I'm not getting one for quite a long time?

    I am going to be trying to snatch a 3080 tomorrow as a fallback, and will attempt to order a 3090 on the 24th. Worse comes to worse the 3080 is still fantastic til I can get my hands on a 3090, and if I do get my hands on a 3090 I can resell or return the 3080. I expect that it won't be easy to get any Ampere cards until next year at the earliest though

    RDNA2 might make a small dent in the demand but unless AMD has a seriously big rabbit to pull out of their hat they are behind on software support by a considerable margin

    The first rumors coming out for RDNA2 see the top end model being in line with the 3070 performance wise.

    Boooooooo. Where did you see this? I got to send it to my friend who is an AMD fanboy.

    I mean, AMD has always been a performance per dollar type, pretty sure these prices are gonna be lower than the 3070.

    EVGA cards just got listed in Best Buy’s site btw, i’m likely settling for the MSI Ventus as i have a 2080 Ventus atm, but any opinion on EVGA? Same price sorta, i have heard their customer service is phenomenal.

    EVGA has some of the best warranties and they're still the only AIB that offers a step up program, so if you buy a 3080 and they come out with a 3080ti in the next year you can pay the difference and upgrade to it.

    The only two I ever consider are EVGA and ASUS, unless results on another are just wild.

    That’s awesome to know, i never tried EVGA as i’ve always had MSI. But that step up program kinda convinces me to go for them, especially when the Ultra and Black models just got listed in best buy’s site.

    Anyone ever try and snag a card from microcenter?

    I’ve never tried to get anything on release day from them. Was just hoping to reserve one online when/if they go live on the site

    Everything I've seen suggests they're suspending online sales for the 3000 series and will only be selling in store on release day



    https://community.microcenter.com/di..._medium=social

    Q.) Will I be able to reserve or buy them online?
    A.) We will not be offering reservations for in-store pick-up, or shipping for these video cards due to the high demand.

    The step up program is only 90 days fam and does not work on all cards or models. You won't necessarily be able to step up to a ti and it depends on a lot of factors. They also haven't said if they would for this series yet.

    Evga has good customer support I guess if you have to deal with that kind of thing. An rma/return is the same everywhere. Otherwise asus/msi run the ship other aib's follow that evga in there somewhere towards the bottom and fe/reference at the bottom.

    Shit. Looks like I'm gonna be building a new PC in the next few months, then. I'm still on a 6600k and 1070, so it should be a huge upgrade to do something like a 9700k and 3080.
