the launch on the nvidia site in germany was the fine joke as expected. 3080ti page switched 14:58 from upcoming to not available. i don`t know if it was a launch at all. maybe technical porblems.

a few minutes later the 3080ti link was not available at all for some minutes. well done nvidia  - again a nice paper or scalper launch - call it what you want :wink:

My trusty old 1080ti is still OK at 1440p, I'm not getting involved in all this nonsense, I'm going to wait until the new cards are properly available at RRP.

I work at a local computer shop, and we have been selling video cards on EBAY for absolutely stupid money. That is, when we can even get them...... The new versions that came out today are the Limited Hash Rate fellers, so, supposedly, aren't good for crypto-currency mining. Last time NVidia tried that, the drivers were hacked in short order, and they worked fabulously for mining. We'll see if the same holds true for the LHR cards.... It's supposedly a new chip, so, maybe, maybe not.

 

Still and all, there are a LOT of gamers out here that have been waiting to get one of the new 30 series cards.... we have a waiting list for them at work.... and folks calling just about every day to see if we have them, when we might get them, and can you put me on the list as well?? :D I suspect it's gonna take some time for supply to catch up with demand.

I attempted to replace my GTX 1060 with an RTX 3070 FTW3 Ultra Gaming..... Nice card. Big. Heavy. HUGE heat sinks. But, aritfacting and lines, even in the boot splash screen. Waiting to hear back on my advance RMA..... but, even with the issues, it is more than DOUBLE the performance of my old 1060. :D When I get one that actually works properly, I do believe I am gonna be a happy camper. For a while. :D

i like this review - even if it is the sad truth. 3070 should be as fast as my sold gaming x trio 2080ti. it was great card without any gliches but also the the last opportunity to sell it for a very good price :wink:. so i'm  now on a 1060 mobile and a rx 570 spare card for the time being... seems nobody wants me to buy a new card. nvidia and amd are just more and more disappointing. instead  of solving the gpu gap problem for gamers they think it is a good idea offer new paper launches for scalper prices. seems at least nvidia showed their true face with the new launch and their priorities... . i don't need their cards anymore. just rediculous what`s happening. just empty promisses and money scalping - exactly the oppostite of what was promised with the introduction of the 30xx cards.

70% price hike, for less than 10% better performance..... The guy doing the review is correct. NVidia is taking advantage of current market conditions, for a money grab. Plain and simple.

Whatever happened to the Jedi Collectors edition?

 

Wasn't there something about AI being a part of it's internal functions making it better for the future?

 

Are specific MoBo's required with Chipset BIOS settings to be able to handle all the new Nvidia changes?

do we not all wait for the jedi collectors edition ? - no doubt for an interstellar price :) but not for an ancient species like gamers...

i think it includes self-developing and -multiplying corellian tensor cores! ;)

There is a number of stellar changes to businesses machines because of the AI equipment NVIDIA developed.  I recall they were selling AI cards to businesses.  A single card cost as much as a Tesla Roadster!   They were cobbled up before the end of the year.

 

Managed to keep a growing population of businesses from dropping off because of people who let someone do the work for them all the time.  And never exercised brain functions anyway.  So they didn't need a human aide, just a mechanical agenda calendar with a Tracking system to follow us around on the Internet.

 

Doesn't appear to differentiate well enough to determine if a person is male, female, adult or a child.  Doesn't tend to accomplish the act of sending specific advertisements individuals that fit even their desired clothing styles.  Now with the latest developments I have seen in advertising it appears AI has deduced we all buy to stock the shelves in our market, for women and don't need to think of clothing for our selves.  NOW including all, types of perverted sexual preferences to make us feel homey and honey happy, all humans, LBGT or what have you, who do not buy any cloths or other jewelry online are being sent advertisement that are fit for families and mothers and fathers.

 

It's almost Dad's Day.  Better get him a new potion to keep him interested in playing with his erector set so he can keep showing off his erections and feeling like everyone loves to see his Eye full erections Tower before that lasts longer then it takes to get his wife and all the neighbors daughters a spirt from that fountain of youth he built while playing his his lute in the back yard.  And lasts for 12 to 24 hours.

 

Most recordings of music with lyrics never last more than four minutes and that is usually long enough to get two adults into the mood. 

 

I heard her say In, ah, God!; ah. David, Daaa Vid  Ahhhhh.

 

Other than listening to Inna Godda Da Vida with it's 20 minute drum solo on the album, I don't know what I could or would do afterward.  Eleven hours and fifty seven minutes if I only took one Viagra.  Procreation usually only takes 1 minute to achieve unless there are other stress factors included to keep Dad from popping the champagne cork for the ceremonial insemination.  The rest is theatrical stuff after that is over and done with.
