Wow, Steve throwing some major shade at Nvidia on this one. I'm guessing they will end up on some kind of list at Nvidia after this one, lol.GN one of my favorite tech channels. Tears NVidia a new one. Basically saying it's useless as a gaming card. This one might stay in stock if all the reviews are this negative:
It will, I would imagine, sell just fine for other uses.GN one of my favorite tech channels. Tears NVidia a new one. Basically saying it's useless as a gaming card. This one might stay in stock if all the reviews are this negative:
Probably, that was kind of what Jensen said during the kitchen reveal. They were surprised how many people bought Titan cards. But still perhaps not going to bring out the scalpers as strongly.It will, I would imagine, sell just fine for other uses.
Probably also to the sorts of people who buy these things, because rational value judgements simply don't seem to apply there.
Microcenter in CA is showing 18 AIB units in stock....Probably the heaviest stocked store in the company.I guess Nvidia pre-apologized this morning before the 3090s went on sale saying that stock for the 3090 was limited. Also, according to the article, you were only able to pre-order 3090s this morning, which would mean stock is not actually available yet? Was that for AIB models as well or just the FE?
NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3090 is going on pre-order this morning, but it sounds like you’re going to need a lot of luck to get one. In a blog post, the company has essentially pre-apologized for the lack of supply, while stressing that it’s strictly designed (and priced) for enthusiasts.www.engadget.com
Well you'd hope this year's terrible value halo card would at least beat the terrible value halo card released two years ago. At least last gen, the 2080 Ti had a 32% high cost per frame than the 2080. Here the 3090 has a 93% higher cost per frame than the 3080. This is a dumpster fire for Nvidia.As terrible as the 3090 is, its cost per frame is still lower than the 2080Ti:
The 2080Ti is a whole new league of garbage.
I beg the differ, the RTX3090 FE (MSRP $1499) is way worse if you consider the performance increase of only 10% at 4k and more than double price cost over the RTX3080 (MSRP $699).The 2080Ti is a whole new league of garbage.
I would say that even 8k TVs are completely unrealistic from normal viewing distances (10-14') unless massive screen too impractical for typical home usage. 8k imo is the biggest marketing rip-off I've yet seen for real world usage. Its simply milking the 'moar is better' idea to lure in the clueless masses.The 8K push is simply because there are TV's out with it. It is absolutely idiotic for a computer monitor resolution at this time unless you have a 65"+ monitor and are within a foot of the screen (which would make using the screen space a pain in the neck if you ask me from having to constantly move your neck around to view it all).
8K might have some benefits on VR, but there is no hardware to my knowledge that would even use 2x4K (one per eye). The real issue for VR at any resolution, especially higher ones is one of frame-rate/refresh. I don't think even hdmi 2.1 has the bandwidth for 2x4K at 120Hz, and we certainly do not have a graphics card that is capable of that (even the new ones) at this time. I think we are still 5-6 years away from that kind of performance.
It doesn't even have Titan "optimizations" for certain professional applications according to LTT's video.I beg the differ, the RTX3090 FE (MSRP $1499) is way worse if you consider the performance increase of only 10% at 4k and more than double price cost over the RTX3080 (MSRP $699).
RTX 2080Ti FE with MSRP of $1199 gave 30% more performance at only 50% higher cost over the RTX2080 FE (MSRP $799)
RTX3090 is the worst gaming card released the last 10-15 years.
I'm curious, which individual card in the last say 20 years would be worse outside of a non-gaming card like the Titan V CEO? I'm trying to think of one, but even though the FX series and say the 2xxx series were disappointing, at least they were all positioned reasonably.RTX3090 is the worst gaming card released the last 10-15 years.
