People sold their $1200 card because a $499 outperforms it.

These numbers literally reflect the numbers nvidia showed with their benchmarks. I don't know what you expected? We're seeing significant gains over the 2080. I do enjoy that 5 games that don't reflect your bias = irrelevant. And 2 games that do (even though they don't) are seen as "official". 

And if you sell at the right time you might break even and essentially get a free upgrade.

Before the Crypto Boom I had 2x Radeon RX 580's which I picked up for $350 AUD each.... And sold one for $800 AUD during the Crypto craze, it's all about the timing.

Yep. This happens every single time, if you have a GPU you want to upgrade from, and know new GPU's are coming out if you can sell your GPU a couple weeks before the announcement. 

Note: Obviously people who have a spare GPU can do this or if they have something they can play on in the meantime.

My point was the gap between the cards wasn't worth selling and then paying an additional extra for a new one. I'm certainly not the only one making this point, but people gotta do what they gotta do I suppose. Looking forward to reviews which Nvidia have postponed to the 16th, have a feeling pre-order will happen before.

Maybe not the RTX 2080Ti guys. I've seen some go for like under £500 on Ebay. You have to sell them before the new cards and prices are announced to get closer to full return.

People think PC's are a lot more expensive than consoles. But if you play smart, you can upgrade every few years without much outlay. The 3K series is quite a bit faster but its really up to the person to see its its worth paying a few hundred more for some more FPS. Saying that, the RTX 2070 doesn't fetch as much as it used to second hand.

Maybe you need bar charts to help you.

Nvidia claimed 50-90% improvement over the 2080 depending on the game.

I don't see the problem here? This is bang on.

Not talking about 2080 guys, that's ok. My referring to 2080 TI got lost in translation I guess.



I wish there would be some 3090 leaks.....

Good vid, wouldn't surprise me, it is Nvidia in a nutshell.

"Moore's law's dead will put me on Nvidia's shitlist"

Sounds like he talks a lot of shit about Nvidia, going by that kind of comment. I guess you two share the same sentiment, and I guess why you linked the vid in the first place is my guess.

Mind you, Adoredtv does the same thing, though he's more or less given away that he's an AMD bot at this point.

But why compare 3080 benchmarks to 2080Ti to make some sort of statement? Wouldn't it be more logical to wait for the 3080Ti? The performance difference will likely be on the same scale when all is said and done. If a 3080 base reference card can beat a 2080Ti this handily, a 3080Ti will absolutely murder it.

You're speaking too much sense.

I didn't think you'd compare a 3080 to a 2080Ti cause that's silly. People who spend that much money on a GPU are looking at the 3090.

But if you insist on the comparison, 23% to 33% faster for almost half the price of a 2080Ti is pretty damn crazy if you ask me.

I don't think anyone is buying a 3080 for 8k gaming. 

8k resolution in the context of a monitor on a desk is stupid anyway. You're at maximum eye resolve at that size and distance. Plus no 10GB Vram card is being aimed at 8k. It's just for better performing 4k. 

4000 series Nvidia might try to advertise 8k but really it's for high refresh rate 4k with a lot of extra post processing.

Officially no longer amazing.
