It's only 192 bit though, so the bandwidth is significantly lower (and the VRAM is also cheaper and more readily available as well). Th 3060Ti/3070 have 256 bit, and the 3080 has 384 bit.
It’s looks slower than a 2070 super. Maybe the ray tracing will be quicker but the rasterisation looks between the 2070 and 2070 super. I felt an improvement with the 3060ti over the 2070 super but that card is like a 2080 super.I'm wondering how performance will compare to my 2070 Super, I've not been that impressed with the 2070 Super to be honest.
And then all their gaming-focused high-end video cards have been holding the phone at 8GB VRAM for the last five yearsAMD has forced Nvidia to add more RAM to their cards. Now 3070 looks really silly with the same amount of RAM as the old Radeon 580
Wait... the ancient Radeon R9 390 had 8 GB RAM as well...
That was like 5 generations ago
The Mumbai boys at the local stripcenter PC shop are waiting for another load this March of used 980ti, 1080ti and 2080's all from their network of 'Miners.' I was told that the 'cryptos' will be selling like hotcakes and mostly to the man on the street. A used Miner 1080ti will probably go for $65. For people like me with rather shallow pockets, a NVIDA dream may come true after all. I may go for a stretch and get a RTX 2080 for hopefully a little over a $100, but that if the company allows me some overtime driving a forklift. I am most definitely ready to experience Metro Exodus and meet the Aurora Team at Novosibirsk station. Life is good and interesting times ahead.More vram means longer life-time for mining...
Yes I will need luck as it has always been in my illustrious life. But "Crypto Cards" have always pulled quite a bit more 24/7 heavy duty online then the average gamer sitting at home. Thus less pricey. The Mumbai boys and their shop is in LA but not exactly in a preferred drive too area. But for deals many come anyway. Madhu from Varanasi said the 'perfect storm' for used 1080's and 2080's (non-cryptos) will be around late April/May and once Asus, MSI, Gigabyte, EVGA, Zotac and many others bringing their custom '3000' series to bear and start flooding the now stale market. A base 3080 will run $699 and let's see what that will do for a used 2080ti? That will be the test of time for many and the people I know who initially shelled-out $1,450 for a 2080ti MSI Trio Gaming. I am on the other hand find myself on the lower end of the food chain and "Crypto" will unfortunately stay and remain my middle name.Well, used 1080Ti are actually gaining in price where I am, so good luck in India.
