    I REALLY HATE THIS REVIEW. And honestly lost some respect for your channel and videos. I have never seen one of your videos seem so biased. You seem to be so AGAINST this card being good. As if you don't want to be agreeing with everyone else and want to be the one guy saying the opposite.... It's like everything they did good and did right, you just come back with some reason that it's bad or isn't as good as they say. This is seriously one of the BEST cards we have gotten in a LOOOOOONG time and it really sucks to hear you try and dog on it so much.

    • SBM

      Look how dogshit the 2000 series was if you didn't buy the 1200 dollar 2080ti, it's no wonder this series was so good when the last one was comparable to the previous series My 3080 is arriving tomorrow so i'm not hating on Nvidia, it's just fact

    I need advice from the community and maybe even Linus: Should I get the 3070 or the 3080? I'm using my pc for gaming, and I can afford both, so from people who have compared them, is the extra $200 worth it?

    Every time I play games online I always ask who is using RTX 2080 TI and as soon as I hear some some say they are using 2080 TI I immediately burst out laughing and tell then offer my condolences. Soon in CSGO there will be a plug-in on the server side that is going to let everybody know who is using which video card so we all can laugh together.

    That's not true... 120fps feel better than 60fps even if you play on a 60hz monitor. Games count the input on every frame. So even if you don't see the frames you still feel them. I play on a 60hz monitor and can feel when I'm dropping to from 100 to 70 frames.

  • Ficzd

    I want this card for the value, mainly. It’s a no brainer to get it, for anyone in the pc market. (whether that be productivity, content creation or gaming) Everyone who’s insulting fps-hungry pc gamers must not understand the fact that Nvidias cards appeal to the masses. Ever since the Geforce line was launched, Gaming was the premise of their product lineups. So you can’t complain about gamers trying their hardest to get these cards, and you especially can’t insult those who bought a 2080 TI at full retail because we now have the power of hindsight. It’s unfair to judge someone because they bought a $1200 GPU in 2019 just now when the 3080 released because no one had any clue this was coming. And for people who run rigs for office work/jobs, most likely if you’re doing things that require a 3080, you’re going to want a 3090 instead. So, a lot of you complaining about gamers and their “childish whining” about not being able to get their hands on the literal pinnacle of GPU technology is unwarranted and immature. Understand the fact that people like or want different things for different purposes and reasons.

    Here is my review of the tech world. One of the songs from the band Queen goes "I want it all, I want it all I want it all, and I want it now I want it all, I want it all I want it all, and I want it now " If you know how money works, you will know the meaning of the song. Yall think AMD and Intel and Nvidia are in a battle to come out with the best product, NO!!, they are in a battle to get your money. how about stop living paycheck to paycheck and put your money to work. Instead of investing in things we don't need, how about investing in life insurance.

  • Saturn2888

    What I really care about is how it compares to the 1080 Ti. Most people didn't downgrade to the 20 series (price/performance).

    The GPU market has become ridiculous. The features and performance on the latest Nvidia GPUS do not align with the cost and value. Im very happy with my AsRock 5700 XT at all resolutions up to 4K. I only paid $400. Granted the card is not 100% stable on all games. Nonetheless, there is no way I am paying $1,500-$3,000 for the 3080-3090!!!!! The GPU market is a joke. I wish consumers would stop supporting the price gouging by private party sellers, Amazon, Newegg, etc.

    I could see this coming. Xbox and PlayStation have made some BIG moves this time around and forced nvidia into a bit of a tight spot. The only ones that overhyped these cards was the PC enthusiasts aiming to take the spotlight off the consoles. It was always going to seem lacklustre in comparison.
