I also want the fastest tech that's possible (10900k @ 5.1, 4400c16 ram 1.55volt and a 3090) but im actually...using it. You know, 99% usage, not sitting there idle at 30% usage

You got your ram running at 1.55v?! What kit is it?

I have never and will never use raytracing on my 3080... why? Because all I play are ultra sweat competitive Battle Royale games with low/medium settings at 1080p. I use my 1440p display for web browsing. There are literally millions of gamers just like me. If I want story driven content I read books. Gimme that competitive crack!
Yeah, well, that's like your opinion, dude :) Most people buy premium cards to enjoy the new tech at its finest. I have my 3080Ti to play games with ray tracing, which is majestic, plus render HDR movies into TV via proper HDMI 2.1 connection. The rest of the time I do Tensorflow training. And 1080 Ti isn't good for any of that.

Play Cyberpunk in Psycho mode and then tell me that nonsense.

Ray Tracing has matured and is worth it - but as expected, it took a whole nother' generation of GPU to mature.
Surely in psycho mode with ray tracing you're playing closer to 30fps than 60, unless you're using performance dlss maybe?

Tell that to the 300 million Warzone/Fortnite/Apex Legends players that keep buying 1080p 240hz+ monitors. You'd be shocked how much money the BR fanatics spend every year on PC hardware. Look at the sales of 240hz monitors!

Never trust a bunch of lunatics, they always believe they rule the world.

Imagine if you’d chosen a Vega 64 liquid cooled over a 1080ti back in 2017. You’d feel like a complete clown now!
Imagine how ***** you would look comparing the GTX 1080 competitor against the GTX 1080 Ti lol, cause Vega 64 was meant to compete with the GTX 1080.

The Vega 64 liquid cooled edition released in August 2017, 5 months after the 1080ti released and both cost $699. The 1080 came out in May 2016 for $599.

So I would say how ***** would you look if you tried to compare the Vega 64 to a card that came out a more than year before for $100 less..

Wrong again, while it was priced similarly, but no where it was meant to compete with it, it was just a Halo product, just like those gullible nVturds that selected the GTX 1060 over the RX 580 and now they are regretting it so much huhuhu

You are deluded to claim the Vega 64 liquid cooled that released in August 2017 for $599 should be compared to the 1080 released at £599 in May 2016 when the 1080ti released 5 months prior to the Vega 64 liquid cooled for the same money.

I’m not even sure why you think they should be compared. Sounds like a fanboy fantasy…

The 1060 was released alongside the rx480, and they perform similar even today. Check gamegpu, in the last 50 games the 1060 performs about 4 - 5% better

Only if you count the fact with old games as expected, but with newer games, the GTX 1060 aged miserably.

I'm talking about the latest / newest 50 games. Actually the 1060 is even above the rx580. I mean obviously it all depends on the games tested, but just looking at the newest 50 games from gamegpu 1060 is noticeably faster than an rx 480
