With the avg screen res going up (i guess) and games getting harder to run, we need to get used to this and not expect a GPU that will run your games at max settings in 4k to use 250w max. As long as i could cool it, idgaf how many watts it uses really and no doubt i would have a 3090ti if i had the cash.

All you guys with 4k high refresh screens, you really think GPU power use is going to stop going up. If you want to run your games at that res, high refresh, get used to it or get a lower res screen.
Having lived with such a room heater, enjoy it y'all, I'll not bother.

Yet I agree to a point, however in 5 years using north of 500/600 watts to get this much performance will be idiotic and that's a fact.

1080ti (11.800m transistors) vs. 2080ti (18.600m transistors) = 19,0% faster (58% more transistors)
2080ti (18.600m transistors) vs. 3080ti (28.300m transistors) = 24,4% faster (52% more transistors)

So in reality performance increase will be around 25%, my bet.
According to the TPU founders editions review of the 2080ti and 3080ti, at 4k, the 2080ti is 38.9% faster than the 1080ti, and the 3080ti is 47% faster than the 2080ti.


I have no idea where you got those percentages from.

I don't undersatnd why people run these silly benchmark programs. Run some games or apps, nobody cares about esoteric meaningless benchmarks.

Despite the +66% score in Timespy, I'll stick with my old prediction that Full AD102 is going to be at least 2X in 4K raster vs GA102.(fastest OC AD102 (full) at least 2X vs fastest OC 3090Ti)
Like I said in the past 2X uplift means it will be CPU limited even at 4K (It may need a testbed change from 5800X to Zen4 V-cache (coming this year according to rumors) to show it's true colors.
Another thing that I said in the past is that maybe Ada Lovelace will ship with 2 TBP options making comparisons with Ampere models more difficult, we will see.

3d Mark results are pretty consistent and can be interpolated into possible performance of other games/applications.

At least 2X should be expected because those transistors can't just go to waste. Titan Xp to 3090Ti is 2.4X perf for 2.4X trasistor count even with all the RT included to hold it back. This time no new RT tax added, it's already there, so we are looking at almost the same kind of jump as seen between 1080 Ti and 3080 Ti, hard to believe.

your missing the point bud, gpu makers need to find a way of moving forward without pumping x amount of increasing power into there products at a time when most folks are trying to save the planet. even a 3070/80 uses far too much power and leaves wasted heat because its easy for them to make them that way overclockers have used this method since the first chips. now this is how i feel im not dissing anyone who uses said gpus im just pointing out that AMD/Nvidia ect dont see or dont want to see whats happening. as i write London is burning.
GPU makers need to earn money. High end gaming is a waste of ressources anyway. Most folks didnt try to save the planet, only a percentage of the western world, about 10% of world population. The industry migrates from the west to asia, thats all the green agenda does. Lower wealth in the west then leads to bad emergency infrastructure. Thats happening in London. Of couse the responsible politicians blame the weather
To the topic: Buy a GPU that fits your need, enjoy your games, there are many who gives you a chance to save the world.
PS: I am using a undervolted, slightly underclocked rtx 2070 around 120 W.

This is one of those amazing stats on paper that makes you drool, but then you go back and realize your games probably already run at 60fps....so unless you're hunting 4k at 244hz or trying to run Cyberpunk above 1440p at 60fps, this card is just utter overkill for any game out today that dips into the past....its a niche product requiring a significant uptick in power consumption and heat output. Alaskans, your card has arrived!

I know, this is an 'old argument', who needs more than 256kb of RAM, right? But the thing is.......the software market has dried up. Where is the killer app release that will showcase the raw power of these cards.......it's not there. It's like trying to sell people on Ray Tracing by showcasing MINECRAFT running at 35fps. It's just.....out of step with software development.

Then when we get amazing Ray Tracing patches, only one in every 10 games showcases a marked improvement in visuals....the rest can largely be categorized as "I guess yeah it sorta looks better a little I guess if you're telling me it should"....and your framerate is cut in half, so then you have to render the game at resolutions we thought were amazing in 2009 and then use black magic and math to scale up, which works to a certain degree but then.....if we can already do that....why bother with brute-forcing further?

Its the endless teeter-totter of software versus hardware development.

Can it run Crysis? Who'd want to, these days, when its just a port of the 360 version remastered........

Wait until Launch
Then go Poo.

Might give it a try later
I used to game on my 1080Ti on 4K ever since launch and have had no issues, maybe one game which didn't have 4K resolution, but nothing major. Yes, give it a try.

This comment is so true.

Here's a rant from an "old guy". I've been playing PC games since original Tetris and Prince of Persia days. So much so, I ended up working in IT when I grew up. I was also always salivating looking at high end hardware, but never really had money for it back then. Then as I actually got older I've learned a few things...

1) yes, hardware overtook software years ago, first you were always hunting next gen just to run OS properly (damn Windows ;D ), nowdays except games and few niche/pro apps EVERYTHING runs fine even on entry level hardware. And well done games fly on midrange hardware.
2) hardware also overtook the human abilities, eg 6" phones with 8K screens or whatever. "Retina" showed it years ago. Then, as you also aren't in your prime that 8K 144Hz becomes just a gimmick because my eyes aren't what they used to be, and my reflexes are far from what they used to be.
3) You realize that good games don't need eye candy and twitch reflexes. Recently Valheim showed that to the world, very mediocre graphics, very simple gameplay, multiplayer optional. But so addictive! Then I looked back and thought about games I spent most time with, and it was like Civ III, or shooters like CS that weren't about graphics or fps, just about good coop and simple fun. Guess what, those are still top games today.
4) playing less of latest games saves lots of money! Be 2-3 years behind, and you get gold/Legendary editions and bundles that include DLCs, and you can play on "last gen" hardware, plus you get all the patching and optimizations.

So yeah, buying high end to play games on release, and then you get fail like Cyberpunk that is only now really ready, think of all the money saved if you targeted that game on release vs today.

Sure if you're rolling in cash and have 20h a day just to play, then go for it, I would too :D

This is my reasoning to spend a bit more generously on my rig, I spend quite a lot of time on it :)

But other than that, I agree!

That reminds me, Ubisoft games have been trite and boring for as long as I can remember, yet they still sell so well :oops:

I'm predicting roughly 3070ti performance from the 4060 if this is true.

That would make it priced in line with Intel's Alchemist GPUs if MSRP stays in line with Ampere.

High end is needed for only a few competitive and very fast FPS games (Quake titles) where very high framerate is essential. Don't forget 500Hz displays are coming and it might go higher in the future. Probably hitting LCD limits is very close.

500hz forget about LCD limitations, how about human ones. I have a feeling most people aren't really capable of seeing a difference beyond 120fps, we don't see in fps per se, but at some point we can no longer determine the difference from real life. I know LTT did a blind test with its staff and kind of proved that higher FPS paid off for twitch titles, but I'm guessing even then there are limitations or at the very least diminishing returns.

If the power draw from a 4090 is bad for planet saving don’t ever look at EV power draw, a single Tesla may shock you into a coma.

If the power draw from a 4090 is bad for planet saving don’t ever look at EV power draw, a single Tesla may shock you into a coma.
Tesla is a car. A big machine which you can drive for miles with the battery. This is a graphics card chip with ram and PCB and that is it.
It's like comparing a bicycle to a car.
