I agree. The rtx 4070 Ti Super is the card I wanted in the first place. 256b bus and 16GB of GDDR. If I needed a card, that's what I'd buy (though, too bad no FE, they are shorter cards).
Yeah, pretty much the same here. Nvidia lost a sale to me by their greediness, so got a cheaper card. I'll upgrade to the next gen at the soonest.

Playing Fallout 4 now for the first time.
Playing games with a 9 year delay is something that most people probably won't put up with, unless they really have to.

I would definitely argue that your update strategy was very far from optimal. If you had not used that 8800 GT from 2008 to 2023, but had upgraded around 2013-early 2017 and then again to something like a 6700 XT or 3060 after the mining boom ended, then I definitely think that you would have had a much better experience on average for a similar spend than you do now. I think that you stuck way too long with the 8800 GT and perhaps overcompensated by going for the fairly expensive 4070. Given your history, will you use that 4070 also for 15 years until 2038? Because I definitely think that it is a way better strategy to use low-end GPU's for shorter periods than stick forever with a more expensive card.

Older games. Like Dragon Age Origins, and DA2, Fallout New Vegas... I think Pillars of Eternity was the newest game I played on my old card.

Playing Fallout 4 now for the first time. I have Witcher 3 installed and will likely play that next after FO4.
Fallout 4 was excellent. I had lots of trouble with New Vegas on Windows 10 till the point I gave up (too bad, it was fun).

I didn't really find any technical issues with FONV on Windows 10. I had to use a fix for an Intel iGPU bug back when I was using the iGPU, but other than that it needed no special settings to work. I didn't visit the compatibility tab at all. I was using YUP as recommended.

Now that I have a modern GPU, I find FONV is better looking than FO4. I combine MSAA x8 with DLDSR for an incredibly stable and sharp but full AA image, and of course FONV is just a more fun game. Peak Fallout IMO.

DLDSR seems to flake out FO4... FO4 game engine seems confused about the current resolution and puts the UI where it would be on the base resolution instead of where it should be when super sampled.

Okay, I'll give FO:NV another try with YUP. Win11, so who knows, but I hope it doesn't crash all the time like it did on Win10.

A little teaser? What do you think?

Get FOSE and the "stutter remover" mod. You can also run it properly at high framerates this way. Otherwise it gets locked to 60fps. There are also a bunch of HD texture mods, which I haven't tried but look really good in the pictures.

I played the original game when it came out but only played two of the DLCs for the first time two years ago on a 3090.

This was shown just before the Super announcement. They were just teasing the new cards.
They specically tease a tech or feature on the new GPUs in the lab. Maybe the new GPU in the lab can be argued to be 4080S, but I still wonder about the new tech/feature

It was just a new version of their voice generation demo and the new thing they were referring to was the new Super cards.

You need to keep in mind that the demo was made by people who just use A100 or such and wouldn't have been given any specific information about the new cards. They just get told to put a teaser in.

Seems at stock the 4070S is about 7-8% slower but with light OC you can get it to 4070 Ti levels.

Pretty much a 3080ti at 2/3rds the power usage based on what I have read. That's nice, I guess. A 3080ti can play just about everything really well at 1440p especially. Doesn't really rev my motor much, the 3080ti has been available (admittedly used) for about that for a long time, and that was used 3090 territory too. Not sure now that AI has been scooping up higher frame buffer cards.

And yeah, cutting power usage is also very nice. Smaller card size is a plus. Less noise is good. But... It would be really nice if the OG 4070 moved to $500 - or lower - that would be the real win for now IMO.
