Mate are you sure? Pretty sure the 3080 was never $500, the 3070 maybe, 3080 is closer to $800.It's a lot less impressive when you consider the RTX 3080 will offer 97% of the performance for a $500 lower MSRP 6 months ago.
Ampere is impressive, but the 3080ti is a total ripoff.
The fact that they did not increase RAM on 3070Ti vs 3080Ti is a joke. $600 for a high end card with 8GB is just silly now. I'd rather go the AMD way with FSR around the corner where for about the same kind of money I get 12 GB of RAM.
I’ll be enjoying FSR on my 1080 Ti to make it last just that much longer until the 4000 series
Going to wait and see what the 4000 series will be like
