The 3080 and 3090 are so wide that a bunch of WUs won’t fully utilize the card, much like the 2080ti. I’m guessing the 3060 and 3070 will end up very close to the 3080 for probably 50% or more of the WUs.

I’m curious where the new AMD cards will land as they won’t have the advantage of CUDA, but they will have that 128mb of ultra fast ram available.
I bought it for BOINC (and maybe gaming - that new MS flight simulator looks really cool) more than for F@H. I just figured I'd try F@H on it so I could see how it does. Probably in a lot of cases though 2 3070's > 1 3080, but that's only if you can buy them.
