couple that with the rumour from twitter that Nvidia doesn't have and will not have meaningful stock till march and it gets funny..

errr... your right.. its still rumor... i should change the title..
But the news was spamed across 4 tech forums... so i guess its a rumor which has some weight.

We have heard of the GPU revision from a bunch of different sources. 20GB of memory seems like it would make the 3090 completely pointless though. The AIB versions of the card can probably run at the same frequencies as the 3090 for much less money.

You'd think that, having totally screwed this launch up, Nvidia would just wait until the 18th to truly see what they are up against. While I think the 6800XT is probably going to be a very good card in all but RT (where they are simply a generation behind), all we have now is AMD's own handpicked benchmarks for performance numbers. The story may completely change once reliable 3rd party reviewers get their hands on the actual hardware and can run some independent benchmarks.

If i was a 3090 owner I would be sick. Literally. Disgusting bait and switch from NVIDIA. This will most likely come in at $999 or $1099 and be a 3090 sans 4 gb of extra memory.
:\

Feeling the remourse... but oh wells, at least i'll have the card to power cyberpunk....
The only thing im still waiting for is the waterblocks. My 3090 will probably sit sealed up until i get my waterblocks for them.

This product would only compete on price though. Not likely they'll squeeze more clocks with how the current crop OCs. Maybe they can bin some golden chips but then you're looking at less than non-existent supply.

Its memory bandwidth will be much lower than the 3090 so its not just 4gb of vram that is the only difference. People that can justify spending 1500 bucks on a gpu probably wont be too upset since they will still have the fastest card.

I'm not so bent about this. There are tangible differences besides the RAM amount. It likely won't have the NVLink that the 3090 does, it'll have a notable memory throughput deficit, it'll likely have somewhat more conservative clocks. It'll likely neatly split the difference in price between the two SKUs.

It's a reasonable product, just not for me.

There may be those differences, but they will most likely be within 5% of performance. And 5% for $500 is a major slap in the face.

I just hope this seriously bruises their mind-share with the general gamer populace

Maybe not even that much. The difference between the 3080 and 3090 is only 10-15%, and this card seems much closer to the 3090. AIB versions will probably clock to the same levels as the AIB 3090s, since they all tend to top out around the same frequencies and are limited by power and cooling.

It would be interesting to see some 3090 benchmarks with a memory underclock to the same bandwidth. It's not quite the same latency wise as a narrower bus at higher speed, but it might still give an indication of what a 3080 Ti would do.

I doubt it makes much of a difference at all. I would imagine we get roughly the same performance. They might be better off disabling a little bit of hardware if it lets them increase the clock speeds even just a little bit. There really aren't any games that can fully utilize all of those CUDA cores, so performance will be limited by how fast the ones that can be utilized are capable of running.

The 3090 is a lot like Fury was for AMD. A card with a massive amount of shaders with a design that's good for compute. It's not a bad idea, just not the greatest idea for a gaming card.

sad to say tho, but i think you will be lucky to even get a 30 series until after next year, unless navi turns out to be a ground breaker like ryzen was to intel.

Then it will probably be you will be lucky to get a navi until next year.
I think that was why i ultimately dished out what i paid for on my reservation from evga for a 3090, when in reality i would of probably been happy with a 3080ti.

I just need to now wait for a waterblock, which is far less stressful then waiting for the gpu itself.

Pretty much same here, i have returned my STRIX 3090.
Waiting for either 3080TI or 6900XT

I just want to buy a better card than what I have now and keep it for 3 years. Both AMD and Nvidia have made it very hard to do that now. Kind of regret having a gsync only monitor at this time. But no one would have guessed the situation now 2-3 years ago when I got the monitor.

Either way I'm hoping to wait for the independent AMD reviews. I was hoping to have a new card for Cyberpunk so I could use and see what the hell ray tracing is like..but I refuse only a 10gb 3080 when I know for a fact I want to keep the next card for the next 3 years.

I also want to see benchmarks and usage of a 6900xt or a 6800xt in an intel system in case I have to go the AMD route.

Honestly you could buy a 3080 for Cyberpunk and resell it before a Ti comes out. If the supply isn't going to improve until around March the prices will stay high.

If you're in the market for such a card and can find one, a 3080 is still a must buy in my opinion. If you don't buy it, it's probably going to be some scalper that's just looking to delist it on eBay for an extra hundred dollars or so.
