    Hot: 500GB Kingston NVME - $49.99

    No real loss and you're probably better off with another brand. Hard to forget Kingston's bait&switch debacles - V300 etc

    The Great RTX 3080 Scalping event has begun!

    No, they won't. 10GB will continue to be the most sought after 3080.

    If it's as fast as a 3080 in 4k it won't be in stock

    This isn't inflation.

    PS5 Teardown: An inside look at our most transformative console yet

    Shhhh let him believe. Already too many people buying up the PS5 supply just to play Demon's Souls because it looks g.d. incredible. Wouldn't be surprised if Sony tries to acquire Bluepoint.

    Pointless to speculate, and really doesn't matter because 3070 will have even greater demand than 3080/3090, as a function of the pricepoint being a lower barrier. Won't matter what numbers Navi launches with (and they'll all be insta sold-out too), 3070 will be hard to buy for months.

    Except they don't need to "artificial scarcity" a product that already had insane demand, and hype was already 10/10. There's no business upside, it loses money. Artificial scarcity is to prop up a middling product that there isn't great confidence in.

    High demand product is high demand. Other companies only wish they had this problem.

    AMD gaining market share against Nvidia

    Don't underestimate the Halo Effect. Halo products, and a brand developing a reputation for always having Halo products - the best or fastest of something - has an effect that trickles down the entire product stack, and influences buying decisions at every level. It's hard to measure in...

    AMD Confirms Zen 3's Performance Is Monstrous and Speculation Thread

    Benchmarks are useless.. for you. I don't care about cinebench and blender, and the claim has been that Zen3 will finally beat Intel in single threaded IPC. So we'll need to let the benchmarks do the talking, not wishful thinking.

    I Bought a RTX 3080 Today!

    No, just pay attention to who it's being fulfilled by and make sure it's Amazon.

    3090 vs 3080 isn't merely a difference of memory size, but ultimately not relevant since my response was to your presumption that Nvidia wants 20GB 3080's on the market because they'd be more expensive and that would help them (somehow). It was unclear how you came to the conclusion. Again...

    Not sure how you came to this conclusion, but the opposite is true - more expensive to produce, but not more profitable. Reselling a higher quantity of expensive GDDR6x modules per card isn't where Nvidia makes their margin.
