EVGA's GeForce RTX 3080 Ti FTW3 Ultra comes with a large factory overclock, which results in out-of-the-box performance higher than even the RTX 3090. EVGA is also including nine additional temperature sensors and a large power limit adjustment range of up to 450 W.

I think you copied a bit too much from the 3090 review on page 2:
"Note the heatpipes integrated in the backplate, and the thermal pads to soak up heat from the memory chips placed on this side of the card."

Hot and power hungry, with twice the MSRP of a 3080 for a mediocre improvement in performance.

What is the point of letting new cards? It's impossible to get the first ones...
I wish there was a way of getting a card from another manufacturer and let Nvidia have the finger...
Even the the stores are juicing up the prices. Its all a great scam...

If the MSRP price is real that Nvidia provides, that should mean that they are able to manufacture cards at that price and still turn a profit. So what prevents AIBs from doing the same? Why are their cards so much higher in price?

You have a couple of things that are of possible and both are concerning to me in this situation:
1) Nvidia is outright lying about what a card can be manufactured for and the MSRP is a lie.
OR
2) AIBs are outright lying about how much "extra" it now costs to obtain parts to manufacture their cards and they are price gouging the fuck out of everyone. Then when things hit retailers, they in turn add on their mark up to turn a profit......

6700XT listed as MSRP of $479. I see them selling upwards of nearly $900 and up.
RTX 3070 listed as MSPR of $499. I see them selling upwards of $900 and up.
That just goes to show you that either option 1 or option 2 is the problem and I don't know which one is, but both options irk me.

There is an error in the article, it states "Memory is a 4-phase setup pulled by an OnSemi NCP81610 controller." It is actually 3 not 4. You correctly highlighted the 3 in the picture, but the text below it is incorrect in the tear down section.

To dox them you'd probably have to buy something.

Anyways, disagree. Not that scalpers are ruining PC gaming, but that doxing is acceptable in response to pretty much anything short of a crime. Even then, doxing implies giving it to the mob. Skip that, if it's a crime give it to the authorities. Vigilante justice serves no one.

To stay with the thread topic: I've always been pleased with EVGA's FTW cards. Yes they have a fair upmark, but if you can get one for MSRP in this day and age it's an autowin so who cares? Plus they always have good cooling and build quality on this line it seems.

Own a RTX 3070 FTW3 right now. From the queue system.

Security support for Windows 7 has been discontinued for some time now. Maybe take this as an opportunity to upgrade?
