It was a matter of time before investors start questioning why NVidia is giving away new performance for the same price year-over-year. Turing was the first big change. It's over now, fun and games are done.
Yes because most buy those card's, they're a single figured percentage of what is actually bought , most went 2060)2070 at the most and actually mid to low takes way more than half the buying market.

So yeah more performance ,more money, except the buying public largely makes it's own decisions and 2k cards won't sell well I garauntee it.

With 24GB VRAM (If it is true), the 3090 will be the spritial replacement of RTX Titan. If it sells for $2000 it would actually be cheaper, as RTX Titan with 24GB VRAM and full Turing die goes for $2500.

My theory is Nvidia is pushing for folks who usually just buy the xx80Ti to get Titan level performance. Also they will release the 3080/3180 with 10GB of VRAM that will be faster than 2080Ti. In this way Nvidia gets the most of money from people who usually buys xx80Ti either stepping up one tier to Titan level, or upgrading from previous xx80 / xx70.

Part of me believe there will be a xx80 Super ater. Most likely Nvidia will leave enough performance segmentation between the xx90 and xx80 to counter for Big Navi.
New card, new case, new cooling because the new card will toast anything around it. Isn't new tech great!

Performance is going forward. Engineering and technology is being pushed to the max. Besides the price I really don't know what to complain about. Maybe you should apply to be Nvidia engineer and let us see what you come up with?

Some will need a new PSU too if the rumours hold any truth 3x8pin or 1x12pin special with a higher current handling grade of wiring.

300/450Watts isn't negligible, or at the moment a fact though.

Thats a lot. Could it be this one's on the expensive and limited volume wise tsmc node and the rest of the product stack made on the cheaper samsung node?

So this won't be a Titan card, but a 3080Ti replacement? Or will there be a 3080Ti too?

You'll be surprised how many people basically have "unlimited" money these days. These will be selling even if the price is 4000€.. Of course also the supply will be limited, so the initial price should help maintain stock.
Nope, they will not. 2000 series was also a bad seller.

Your right! Didn't TPU show the new rumoured connector a while back.??
And I've been knocked already for suggesting people will need to upgrade components.

As for non-existing? lol

If Navi21 is very competeive versus Ampere flagship, you can bet your sweet as$ that AMD will price it similar to Nvidia's flagship.

Well I think you meant Navi because Ryzens need 64 cores to get a few FPS on crysis(sacrilegious auto correct)

@Hemmingstamp fan's tend to flame any such points. It's Just the way, despite many a thread wherein a dinky shite PSU is getting kicked to fff# by a new GPU.

And I've been knocked already for suggesting people will need to upgrade components.
GPUs used to come with a 2x molex -> 6pin PCIe connector. If the 12pin connector materializes, it's more likely new GPUs will just ship with a similar adapter, for 3x PCIe 8pins -> 12pin PCIe connector. New PSU on top of the already insane GPU prices? That can't go well.

Why do TPU short polls almost always suck immensely? Where's the answer, "I'm not into buying high-end GPUs/I never buy them, so I don't care"? Now hundreds of people who run iGPU/GTX 1650/RTX 5500 will say No to this poll but they've never intended to buy anything which costs more than $200.

Now this news piece title is a load of bullocks: the RTX 3090 will not be priced $2000 even according to this news piece itself which is talking about two heavily modified custom solutions which are always sold at a premium.

3x 8pin to 12 pin you mean?.

If the top 3090s cost $1800, the entry level should be around $1400 which is in line with previous rumours (20% more expensive than previous gen). People who bought the 2080 Ti will buy this too. I may too. It all depends on what I get for my money. 60% extra performance for 20% more money sounds reasonable to me. But I also wouldn’t mind if AMD could surprise us with something even better.

Seems high even for nVidia.

If Nvidia bought up all the competition there won't be much choice.

I thought we were all adults here ;)
Well I think a few youths pass through, some might linger but I am certain even jay2cents kids are Not getting a 3090 for Christmas.

Imagine the Titans price.

And the lower teir cards are starting to sound a bit expensive without even being price leaked yet.

I can't see Nvidia dominating to that degree personally @Hemmingstamp
