I can max these games with a 2080. You are probably reading that your system is using more than 8GB. But that doesn’t mean you need it. The system can allocate more resources to RAM that is not being used.

I’m sorry but you think you need more than 8GB to max these games then you are flat out wrong. On AC Valhalla with a 3 year old 2080 I’m maxed out with about 80-90fps. There are dozens of benchmarks showing cards with 8GB less running the game maxed out at good frame rates.

Don’t get me wrong the 3090s 24GB is very useful but there’s very very few games that need more than 8GB today. Ray tracing uses a lot of memory so it’s probably most useful there.

Just be prepared, the 4080 or whatever it will be called will be significantly faster and cheaper.
There's no way the 2080 can run odyssey at upscaled 8k with every single setting maxed out. You've only got 8gb vram for a start with a 2080. My 1080ti is as powerful as your 2080 and you wouldn't expect a 1080ti to run these games at upscaled 8k. Plus the 1080ti has an extra 3gb vram than the 2080.

I'll leave this here as we've hit one of those never the twain moments and life's too short to get bogged down by such drivel

You didn’t mention 8K. I was talking about 1440p.

But your 3090 can’t do it either:


You clearly don’t have a clue. A 3090 is barely 10% faster than a 3080 yet costs more than twice the price. Basically you’ve been had mate.

FYI the 3070s are selling for a minimum of $1199 on eBay.
I never thought I would ever say this but if there was a time for Intel to enter the high end gpu market the time was yesterday in the name of competition!
The 3080ti will probably be available to purchase at the anniversary of the 3090 at this point!

It's a damn shame what this stupid Crypto Ponzi Scheme has done to the market. They ruined the RTX 2000 launch and then they did it again.

Don't worry. BitCoin will soon start slowly sinking and all those mining cards will appear on eBay. BitCoin is not money, it's a virtual commodity with abnormal fluctuations. Right now it has reached its local peak. It's being artificially kept high, which is also the usual practice in stock market and forex. But then you can expect a long period of price deflation, which usually discourages miners.
