NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti & RTX 3070 Ti To Be Announced May 31st, Launching in June

The NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti are set to be announced on May 31st after various delays. The two cards will then launch sometime in June with the review embargoes set as June 2nd for the RTX 3070 Ti and June 9th for the RTX 3080 Ti. The RTX 3070 Ti features the GA104-400 GPU 6144 CUDA cores and 8 GB GDDR6X memory. The RTX 3080 Ti will use the GA102-225 and include 10240 CUDA cores paired with 12 GB GDDR6X memory, We have already seen some retailers list custom RTX 3080 Ti cards from Gigabyte and MSI with prices ranging from 1338 USD to 2257 USD however these are likely placeholder values. The cards should be officially available to purchase sometime after the review embargoes lift in June.

Probably because you and I don't have the same idea when it comes to justice. What exactly are we suppose to do, complain to the government that a bunch of idiots are manipulating the market of certain non-essential goods to rip people off? Track down the scalpers and rob them blind or throw them in jail with hefty fines?

If you really want to get to the root of the problem with some semblance of justice, you also have to go after the sellers/resellers that are allowing the scalpers to buy such a large quantity.
But no one does. And it seems no one will though.

I agree, go after the resellers who allow this practice. At least Best Buy is trying.

TechPowerup offers it's own version of utility software.

Would it be possible for the site to offer a distributed mining app. for the purpose of putting the miners out of business.

There are more gamers then miners and the are more research number crunchers then miners.

How long wold it take for the gamer community to find enough of the unmined coin as to make it unprofitably for miners to operate?

(personally, I don't play games, but I do need an affordable cuda capable card for mathematica)

Sure if it was specifically called "GamerTechPowerUp, but its not. TechPowerUp encompasses a lot more than just gamer technology.

Expensive GPUs with 8gb Vram in 2021 is the ultimate BS, Nvidia is back again throttling their cards Vrams so that they get outdated 2 years later when system requirements increases forcing people to buy new cards regularly if they want to play at high resolutions, this BS is a scam in daylight.

I was really hoping the 3070ti would have more VRAM. NVIDIA are skimping this gen...maybe I'll skip it entirely.
Right ?

8gb vram is not going to be enough when games are exclusively being developed for current gen consoles, Nvidia is skimping so that you keep buying new cards.

Why do people INSIST on getting the absolute best when you can't afford one? Do you drive a Ferrari too, or do you simply buy a regular car to get from A to B?
I have both; one is for the weekend and the other is for going to / from work.

Do you know what though? There is little point to owning such an expensive car, as on the road, I'm bound by exactly the same driving rules as everyone else. It therefore comes down to, I just want it.

But no, prices have skyrocketed to astronomical levels now, making it not worth it even if I could afford it.
My exact thoughts. I had a few years ago made sure i always buy the $200 - $250 gpu. Now that i earn more money, the gpus that offer that same perf cost $400 WTF? lol......

As usual, a reminder: 5 years before the GTX 580 came out, Nvidia released the 8800 GT ultra for $860. Adjusted for inflation that is over $1100.
That was because they had no competition, they were going to do the same thing with the GTX 280 but AMD released HD 4870 and heavily undercut them.

I owned my RX 5700 XT on the same principle: I wanted one. Then I realised that it's just as pointless for 1080p gaming as a Ferrari is for going to work.

Though I have to admit, I probably wouldn't have sold it if not for the changed prices do to the silicon storage.

Upon reflection, It is probably a silly idea. If a distributed networks could profitably mine coin you would think some of the large corps. that run server farms would apply excess flops to the task.

Yeah I settle with my Mercedes S65 Coupé AMG all week, can't afford better, 740 HP post tuning is okay for me

Why are you following the driving rules tho? Can't afford a ticket, or too scared?

Makes no sense, lets see your ferrari them haha.

Also please explain why consumers should be going for the resolution you think is best.
I don't have a Ferrari, even if I could afford one, I would never buy one, especially not a red one, looks awful

Still makes no sense what you wrote, like you need an entusiast card like 3090 to play games at 4K. You are paying 100% more for 10% over 3080 and 3080 Ti is incoming which will make 3090 pointless.

Fps is more important than resolution for me anyway, could not care less about high res gaming at crappy framerates, I need 100 as bare minimum and pref 140+
