    Well I guess I'm comparing to AMD who havent been able to nail those kind of gains in recent history.

    yup we are to blame for our lack of self control . The consumer is ultimately responsible for the price we pay for the product, clearly too many did not care that they were paying too much . Anyone who bought a 2080ti cannot really complain about pricing because they are the problem and have themselves to blame.

    1080ti to 2080ti was around a 30% performance increase. This is a very acceptable generation to generation gain. The reason they suck is that they didn't launch the 2080ti in the same price bracket as the predecessor. They bumped everything to the next price bracket up, just to see if the market would take it most likely, and the cards are selling so we ****ed ourselves by supporting this shit.
    Yeah it's a shame the TI pricing became TItan pricing. Should have just kept the same pricing structure gap as the previous generations.

    3950X delayed until November, Threadripper 3 also due November. https://www.anandtech.com/show/14895...oming-november

    Wondering if I hang onto my 1600X for another year until Ryzen 4xxx, or get the 3950X.

    Now is never a good time to upgrade, there's always something better in the pipeline or on the rumour mill. Just depends what you use your pc for and what your financial situation is I guess.

    No point upgrading that CPU unless your GPU game is strong.

    How are nvidia making such awesome gains every gen. They are bloody good at what they do. It's almost a given that they make significant gains every time, like clockwork. Are we going to see them hit a wall at some point like Intel did?
    More money to throw at the research than AMD/Any other Company

    Move over, Intel is entering the arena. They have the money to beat everyone.

    If your 1600x does you fine, why spend the extra?

    Trying to suggest my Sis and her partner to use 5700xt.. but not sure if amd drivers still suck?

    It sucked donkey balls when i was using 48xx, 58xx and 69xx. That was when i gave up on radeon

    AMD's drivers are better these days than Nvidia's IMO (currently using a 1080Ti).

  12. Post
    me too.. using a strix 1080ti. saw no point to swap to 2080super or 2080ti at this current stupid price..

    maybe wait 1-2 years then upgrade for myself.

  13. Post
    Have the exact same model myself (definitely wouldn't bother 'upgrading' at the moment).

    I was using AMD before that and have to deal with them as a technician regularly.The driver software interface is nice and modern these days (and most importantly the drivers work well), unlike Nvidia's interface which is stuck in the dark ages.

    Just got a ti what's wrong with the drivers?

    Nothing wrong with them per se, as above, the user interface is just old and basic, whereas AMD's is modern and nicer to navigate - and I don't recommend installing their terrible GeForce Experience software.

    I just had to grab their latest driver for Call of Duty (it is also for The Outer Worlds) - here it is if you want to be ready for when your card arrives. https://www.nvidia.com/content/Drive...=us&type=TITAN

    Whilst it can be considered bloatware, I've found it pretty useful. Being told when to update drivers is worth having it installed.

  17. Post
    I've seen some new games that will just tell you to update your drivers when necessary, so I don't see the need for it personally - I'm also use to going to look for them periodically, or if I am having an issue.

    The Intel i9-9900KS all core 5ghz CPU launches tomorrow. The Recommended retail price is $513 USD

    First review is out: https://pctuning.tyden.cz/hardware/p...-testu?start=6

    If google translate is working properly. They are reporting a maximum temperature of 70c using a Noctua D15 air cooler and recorded load voltage as low as 1.1v and a maximum power draw recorded of 168w.

    Considering many 9900k would be getting close to 100c at 5ghz with that cooler - this CPU seems to be a real beast. Given the temperature and voltage headroom out of the box - I'd not be surprised if these can all overclock to 5.2+ghz

    lol

    Will wait for reviews from the usual crew. It's still going to be a pretty niche market chip given you can get the 3900X for less. With a cooler and currently two games. 9900K can only get worse over time compared to the 3900X which can't stretch it's 12 cores in games yet.

    Where are all the new GPU rumours at.

    Yea that's what I want to know, was considering yolo'ing on a 2080ti (currently have a GTX1070) but have decided that I'll go for the 30's equivalent (with hopefully some decent performance gains too)

    edit: black friday coming up might change my mind though lol

    whats next after 2080 ti
