Possible pictures of an RTX 3080. Very interesting cooler where the cooler extends past the pcb, and has one fan on either side of the fins. Unique if nothing else.

Interesting design if it's legit, I can kind of understand the logic of being able to pull air from either side of the card depending how it's oriented in the case, should help to get cool air into it more effectively than having 2 fans on the same side.

Hopefully we don't have to pay more than $1000 CAD for a 3080 Ti.
Heh... considering a 2080ti runs $1700+ that's a pretty hefty wish....

The days of $700 top tier and $1000 limited run crazy enthusiast tier are long behind us unfortunately.

yeah miss the days of $1200 Titans. now there $3200-$3500.
Those days are definitely done. The last time there were amazing deals (IMO), and before the prices starting jumping was when I got my gtx 460. If I remember right is was $125-150 somewhere with free shipping and a $25 MIR. A handful of years later and it’s equivalent mid-tier replacement is double to triple that.

Yeah best we can hope for if want a deal is wait see if older gen GPUs flood market prior current gen release.even then that's becoming over priced.

I believe I paid somewhere around $500 for my 680, but that was more of a refresh than a new line.

That's the last time I can remember seeing even a second tier consumer card that wasn't well north of $500.

GTX 680 definitely was a new line tho.

I paid $510 + tax for GTX680. $560 + tax for GTX780. OG Titan I am pretty sure I paid $1K + tax, but can't find email. But back then the dollar was 1:1 or close to. :(
