    In case anyone cares, 3090 SLI: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y4fb_R5Ogw0
    Somewhere between 50 and 90% scaling in the games they tested, unless CPU bound, or the games didn't support SLI (which a lot of games don't).

    So overall, between -3% and 95% scaling, for another 1500 dollars, if you can find 2 cards with the same SLI connector placement (it's not standardized in the slightest), and another 350+W of heat in your system.. But on the positive side you get to have the biggest epeen around, knowing that you spent 3000 dollars on just GPUs.

    Don't do it.

    I'll likely wait until stock is readily available and AMD puts out test units of their Big Navi cards before making a choice. I'm not gaming at 4K, only 2K until the 4K 28+ inch screens hit sub-$500 CAD for 120+hZ refresh with a curved screen

    2K is 2048x1080. You game at that resolution?

    It's always a good choice to wait and find out if something works for real or not. And hopefully competition is going to drive down the prices of not only GPUs but monitors as well. Cause they can see a bigger market on 4k, when it's not exclusive to $1000+ GPUs.

    Are you really going to go there? He used the wrong term, yes. But we all know what he meant.

    Yes, I always go there when people use incorrect terminology. Do you have an issue with education?

    That's the problem, we don't. Some people use it to mean 1920x1080, some use it to mean 2560x1440, and others, correctly, use it to mean 2048x1080

    It's 2K QHD, big deal if I didn't use the exact right term

    Nobody I've seen on this website, or anywhere else I frequent, is confused when someone uses 2K to refer to 1440p. Some of us do understand that 2k refers to 1440p in some cases, because the term is seemingly becoming more interchangeable.

    Yeah, so more and more people are making the same mistake, and me and Shaka are trying to stop it.
    At least with 4k it's "kinda" close, in that they're both 2160p vertically, but 2k has NOTHING to do with 1440p, even remotely.

    QHD is Quad HD, or 1440p. 2k is not 1440p, it's not even close to 1440p.
    That'd be like saying that 480p is HD, or 720p is the same as 1080p. It IS a big deal when people use the wrong terms for things.

    2K QHD is also incorrect, its 1440p. See, K numbers refer to the first set of pixels in a resolution and 1440p has 2560 of them. So it would be 2.5K.

    3070's are delayed...

    How about that 30 series availability!

    You really think they'd stop at 10GB vRAM for their 4k card?

    Here's another shocking revelation - we will have 3080Ti/Super early next year too, which will likely be very close to current 3090 at half the price.

    You can bet they are binning their GPUs just for that and just waiting for red team to make its move to top it immediately.

    ---

    My personal intent is to give it another half a year or so for 3080Ti/Super to appear and get that one and then good 4k IPS gsync monitor, until then I can certainly live with 1080Ti.

    ---

    Edit: Oh, just in time - seems like there will be 3070Ti/Super for one.

    https://wccftech.com/nvidia-geforce-...rds-confirmed/
    3080ti will be around 1200, not exactly half the 3090 price

    So 20 loops on Time Spy Extreme, not a single issue.

    The 8700k is bottlenecking the 3080 pretty hard.

    It's close enough, dude. Seriously. There's no need to be so pedantic about such obscure terminology.

    I'm waiting for AMD! Depending on the price and performance, ill decide then what to buy.

    Except it’s not obscure. It’s part of modern life at this point. Seriously though, why is being corrected so offensive?

    3070’s are delayed so they can launch with more stock. And most launches are like this these days. Availability will level out soon enough and anyone who wants a 3080 will have access.

    It's quite obvious that it's due to the AMD event on the 28th. Be it to kill AMD hype or prevent AMD from comparing it to RDNA2 or simply to possibly drop the price if AMD undercuts them by a lot.

    And what comes to launches.. 3080 launch was very limited in Europe at least. You got only a handful of cards in remote regions.
