I have one, it's not just the premium, but also the 90W increase in power usage that's not linear to performance.My 08G-P5-3797-KL popped just now, but I don't think I can justify getting it at a $200 premium over the cheapest model.
Great question. I did not want to tie up 800 dollars for months waiting for a step up. I put in my step up for my 3080 i last October and did not get it until what , I think it was June of this year. I am in que for an 3080 and 3090 KL anyway with what should be less of a wait since I signed up long ago, thus I do not have a need to tie up the dollars at the risk of a crash in Video card pricing. If the value of my 3080 KR is still high when I get my notification on ideally , the 3090, I may be able to parlay it in such a way as to achieve the 3090 for little out of pocket.Why not get the 3070 and StepUp? I'm still making out good with KL cards.
