So from my initial viewing of some reviews (versus 2080 Ti):

- CUDA performance gets some hefty increases

- Ray-tracing performance has gone up in some work loads, but not gaming

- Regular 3D rasterized rendering has some high averages, but lower 1% lows

- Slightly less power consumption than the 2080 Ti

- Still uses the mid mounted 12-pin even though it only needs an 8-pin

- Has all 3 display ports nice and close to each other making active display port cables hard to plug in as they might hit each other

- Around half the expected price, probably the best part of this card making it pretty worth while

 

 

Linus seems to have some pretty big opinions on Nvidia's Launch of the 3070 that I kind of agree with: today was only the Founder's Edition Review and NOT the partner boards and partners might be getting screwed again making Nvidia's own cards looking better.

I'm very interested in what pricing will look like for AIB cards and what availability will be all across the board. Also interested in how much of an impact that VRAM difference vs the 2080 Ti will have at 1440p and 4K on higher texture settings.

Yeah, the 3070 looks like a great upgrade choice for me if AMD doesn't bring better h264 hardware encoder and AAA 240 HZ 1080p performance.  I'm looking forward to a more regular design with dual 6-pin or dual 8-pin and a water block.

I'm not impressed. You can't really call this a $500 2080 Ti as it doesn't beat it everywhere and in some respects spec wise. If you managed to snag a 2080 Ti for around $500, you have more VRAM on a higher bandwidth and 3070 DLSS/RT performance in gaming is not better than the 2080 Ti.

 

As far as I am concerned, AMD can really kill this card if any of the leaks are true.

At this point, I really want to replace my Navi 5700 with a new Navi card from AMD, but some of the things I want to do with my GPU are still:
- Folding@Home
- h264 streaming

- Light Video Editing

- 1080p 240 FPS gaming

 

 

So right now Nvidia is ticking all those boxes way better than AMD unless AMD really presents something amazing tomorrow.

 

 

I'm still running a GTX 1050 Ti alongside my Navi 5700 just because of the better NVENC h264 encoder and the extra GPU muscle for Folding@Home muscle and video editing.

Totally understand that different use cases will necessitate different cards being better. Makes sense.

 

Anyway, the other bit that just leaves a bad taste in my mouth is the $500 price tag (so AIB's will be more). And it's an xx70 tier card. So I guess the Turing price hikes most of us complained about are fine now?

Unless MAD releases a better card @ close to the same or cheaper price.If they DO,we can probably expect to see another episode of "Super" cards being released for a slightly lower price than the original cards came out for,ala the RTX2xxx series.

Considering availability issues and likely yield problems with Samsung as their fab, and let's be honest, Samsung "8"nm not being the best, I think the launch cards will be short lived and quickly replaced by a TSMC 7nm refresh with perhaps a shift in chips/configs. I could see a 12-20GB 3090 as a 3080 Ti/Super and a cut down 102 with more VRAM as a 3070 Ti/Super, and perhaps on TSMC 7nm...a 3090 that isn't cut-down. But that assumes they were working a 7nm design in parallel with 8nm. Guess we'll see. I don't think they can respond much at all in their current state and I don't think we'll see them lower the current 3080 price. You can't even find it - it's not like they are collecting dust on a shelf.

Something's wrong with me, when I see 2080 TI's posting on 2nd-hand markets for $700-800 and feel like it's a deal.  Damn these scalpers for holding up the Ampere supplies. 

 

@Sir BeregondAt the end of the day, it does feel like $500 is too much for this range still.  NVidia really did move the stack prices on all of us, even for AMD.
