Can't wait to watch that in 4K on my work monitor, looks like YouTube is taking its time in getting that version encoded.

My first thought is that I hope the 3080 is cheap when the 4080 or 5080 comes out :olol: There's going to be a glut of 2080s on the market soon.

BIG NAVI!! Delayed a touch owing to the next-gen console deluge, here's the Digital Foundry verdict on the RX 6800 XT and the RX 6800. Priced below 3080 and above 3070 respectively, AMD's pricing pretty much falls into line with rasterisation performance. There's some innovative engineering here, and full support for next-gen features including VRS and ray tracing... but just how well do the new AMD cards straddle the generational divide?

So after 4 years, I think my 1070 is on the way out.

It's mined, it's gamed, it's been stuffed in cases with no cooling and it's provided me with countless hours of entertainment. But it's giving me a lot of blank screens, weird greens on cold boots and I think I saw an artifact tonight...

I think at this point the desktop is dead.
Even if I wanted to replace it, and even if I could get stock of anything I'm certainly not going to be paying literally double what all the cards on the market are actually worth (Both NVIDIA and AMD'S entire lineups are at least twice the cost they should realistically be) so I'm either going without a GPU for boring stuff, and gaming on console. Or gaming entirely retro and portable.

I never thought I'd see the day where I'd refuse to buy PC parts... remember the storage and RAM hikes back in the day? Or when a mid level office machine cost 3 grand? That never put me off. But this has.

I'm just angry because my $500 thing half a decade ago can't be replaced for half the price.
I'm not being priced out the hobby, I'm just finding ways to better use the money.
