You aren't alone. Benchmarks didn't alter my opinion; if anything the one review I skimmed made my sense of meh even more emphatic. Unless a compelling game comes out*, it could be another generation or two before I upgrade

* As I recall from the review, the only game that brings a 1080 Ti to its knees at 1440p was RDR 2.

even then if you sit down and tweak rdr2 you can get it running great with good graphics...

still, if you were looking to upgrade its a worthy jump from the 1080 Ti to 3080. Not so much if you are already on a 2080 Ti though.

im happy to wait to see what the gigabyte waterforce wb will look like and see what waterblocks come out from watercool

I could easily be talked into one of these IF HeatKillers arrive soon. That would be an easy sell for me, just because I'm curious what these cards can do underwater, particularly the Zotac variant. I've had good luck with Zotac, and my current Zotac 2080Ti is a monster under water.

NanoPi Neo 3 (2GB). Pretty neat little package, I'm running a Docker container for AdGuard Home and KMS, along with NTP Server directly. Basically my network service appliance now, rather than having a VM do it. Now I'm not without DNS when I reboot :)

Runs Ubuntu 18.0.4 and came with the case/assembled as per picture below. Came out to $50 CAD but also had to pickup a microSD card (https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07FCMBLV6) and USB-C charger (https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07WRKXQ8W), so closer to $100 all said and done. Probably could have bought cheaper charger and smaller SD but I want it to last.

That's a super neat little unit! Just to clarify for me: AdGuard I get. KMS as in Key Management Service? And NTP server as in Network Time Protocol?

Does AdGuard work differently than PiHole?
