    Quadro graphic

    Quadros are not exactly comparable, but I think you mean something like rtx 5000. For work I guess it will be (much) better. For gaming I would keep 1080ti.

    Intel "Raptor Lake" is a 24-core (8 Big + 16 Little) Processor

    Actually the "leak" from "Moore's Law is Dead" we are talking about, has many more details and possible configurations. About small workstations I already made a comment earlier.

    Intel "Raptor Lake" is a 24-core (8 Big + 16 Little) Processor

    Yeah, wrote this before, I'm considering a 8-0-1 or 6-0-1 configuration. Of course that's only me, I don't need a Xeon or Threadripper or even 5950x.

    I think we do have other options for small workstations, although 16 cores seem like a better choice (except for price).

    GPU Sales Increased 39 Percent in 2020

    @Anymal just posted the answer... The article further says: "Desktop graphics add-in boards (AIBs that use discrete GPUs) increased by 7% from the last quarter." (via Videocardz) Intel still has 68%, only with integrated graphics, but both iGPU and dGPU increased their numbers.

    NVIDIA Announces GeForce RTX 3080 Ti ($1200) and RTX 3070 Ti ($600)

    Actually I was hoping to also hear something about the low end GPUs, 3050 ti and 3050. Still need a 75w card without 6-pin connector.

    NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti Tested in Ashes of the Singularity

    W1zzard was able to find rx 6900 xtx, so any other GPU would be piece of cake to get.

    AMD Socket AM5 an LGA of 1,718 Pins with DDR5 and PCIe Gen 4

    I think PCI-e gen 5 means CXL protocol ready. The question is how important (or not) will this be after 2-4 years.

    GeIL is Ready to Launch the Next Generation DDR5 RGB High-Performance Gaming Memory

    Nice. It seems ddr5 will mature very fast. Now let’s hope we won’t need 150 eur for the 16gb 6400mhz stick.

    PLEASE HELP - should change my entire system or just upgrade

    It’s a rare occasion to have such consensus, a 2,5” SSD could change your PC, especially the load speed and responsiveness of your applications. Personally I would opt for 1TB (or minimum 500GB).
