    I typically wait for the refresh. You get higher clocks and smaller cards most of the time.

    Hmmm thats not great to hear. Sure some issues are to be expected ... such is life ... but 'mass' reports are never good.
    But as mainly a console gamer ... I am not even in the GPU market anymore.

    I think people have learned their lesson about trusting nvidia marketing. I wouldn't be surprised if 3070=2080ti turned out to be nonsense too ( except in one particular case, like all their claims).

    I wouldn't even be trusting nVidia in their RTX40 series.

    Like you would not grab one and stick it in if it fell off the back of a truck.

    With the issues it has from vendors going on the cheap to get them out on launch day. Pfft. No way.

    Reports coming in that Nvidia's latest driver update possibly fixed this issue. It seems the issue wasn't "bad capacitors" necessarily, the issue was with a ton of fluctuations in voltages as the card swaps between "normal" clocks and boost clocks. The reason different caps might have "helped" is because those caps could better handle the huge sweeps in voltage during workloads...but as reported by various people on Reddit and such, even cards with the "better" MLCC caps were having crashes (although less often). The reason underclocking and undervolting "fixed" the CTDs is because the voltage was no longer going through these big fluctuations all the time.

    You can actually fix it yourself by setting your voltage on your 3080 to max out at 1v when at 2ghz (and supposedly you can push it to 1.1v and go higher, if you wanted to).

    I ran my Zotac 3080 (the one with all the "shit" caps) at 2030mhz for the last hour now in a few games, haven't experienced any crash whereas beforehand it would crash basically instantly.

    I highly doubt the 3070 will match 2080 ti performance. Nvidia lied about 3080 and 3090 performance. 3080 didn't turn out to be double the performance of 2080. The used cherry picked data for that result.

    And the 1.9x perf/watt is entirely made up too. That's way too good to be true.

    How ironic on what Jensen said about it's safe for his Pascal friends to upgrade. Yeah no, fuck that. My 1080Ti will stay for a few more years.

    It might crash, but it crashes *much faster* than what I've got right now. :lol:

    I think Nvdia feels threatened. The Next gen consoles are very powerful machines. Price to performance on them can't be beat. The 30 series announcement was right before console pre orders so they are obviously trying to compete with them more then AMD's RDNA 2 pc gpus.

    Consoles are a better value then getting a standalone 3070. If your only concerned with games you get cpu, gpu, ram, controller all for $500 compared to $500 just for one pc component the gpu. The fact that Nvdia had to lie this bad to try to push as many units tells me they are threatened.

    Im interested in AMD's offering how it compares to 30 series gpus. They have a chance to not screw up like Nvidia and get more praise as long as the hardware is Excellent.
