    3080's where art thou?

    My work monitor is 3440x1440, however for gaming I use a 1080p 240Hz projector.

    3080's where art thou?

    I started using 3090 and I think it's not as useless as it sounds, it can add up to 10 more FPS where it matters (the difference between 80 and 90 in maxed out Cyberpunk), and is godly in VR. Having many of my favorite titles run at 140-180 on ultras is just sick.

    My 1080ti's had weird burn stains and were artifacting after a few months of mining in 2017, they got ok after, but I stopped torturing them. The 3090 reportedly has poor cooling on some of its 24GB memory units and could reach 110° on vram.

    Mining kinda kills hardware, if that's your only GPU

    At least we are getting a little bit more FPS out of it, right 😄

    We are forming a 3090 club for shits and giggles

    The FpsVR was showing 16GB of vram allocation in Half-life: Alyx, however the latest Afterburner with per process reporting has shown the game was sitting at only 6GB(!). 3090 is hilariously not needed outside the fact that it's available lol

    Ok, $3k+ is pushing it for a GPU.

    The time cost matters too, the amount of man hours one needs to monitor 3080 stock, might be worth more than an extra $1k

    Has anyone explored the merits of 24GB? There's a messy misunderstanding about the allocated memory vs used, but I think VR in 500% super resolution might use a lot of VRAM.

    I did from Best Buy, though, I'll keep it sealed in case 3080 or even 3080ti pop up anytime within 30 days return window.

    Samsung SSD warranty and Bestdirect.ca not being an authorized dealer (lolwut)

    They sent me a UPS label meant for US shipping with their RMA address for both sender and receiver (I later found out their system won't let them put a Canadian address, so the rep just put their own). I still dropped the SSD off with this weird label and UPS got confused and lost it. They...

    Some people say this company does RMA for Samsung too: http://www.samtack.com/contact_us.html Edit: "Unfortunately we are not the warranty centre for Samsung nor do we distribute their products."
