  1. My take on this, and ignoring all sensationalism on youtube, is that I always felt that there was a fighter gap below the F-35 on the USA and indeed many of European countries, and others in Asia. There is a strong demand for a lighter jet that can perform QRA, Intercept, dogfighting and lighter A-G tasks better and cost far less per hour. The Gripen now occupies that slot but it is the only option, and is a bit too light for some requirements, a slighter heavier plane that could be a true F-16 successor is perfectly viable complement type. If we ever see live images of planes
  2. I gave up upgrading, and rumours seem to support my early speculation that AMD /NVIDIA are already gearing up for next release exactly 1 year from now with much more powerful GPU's. Current GFX's are becoming too expensive for this short life span.
  3. Dont buy if the price is higher than 400$. It should be closer to 300. Also Im and getting more than 8GB usage in DCS at 1440P. Holiday season is a horrible time for new builds for both stock and price. The news about shortages have been quite frequent lately but I have been building since the 90's and I always had trouble at this time.
  4. This generation might be another short lived dud that's why they may be cancelled the "VRAM enriched" versions. I suspect this because NVIDIA got the inferior manufacturing process from SAMSUNG 8NM, very low availability and giving recent news that they have switched back to the same node AMD is using from TSMC so they may gearing up 4000 series next year already.
  5. They can put the radar code on separate core(s) rather than shove it into the GPU and kill the FPS. Also not everybody has ray tracing yet.
  6. If 6900XT's are good enough I might go with an EVGA Hybrid version of that when they come out (most triple fans wont fit im my case since I placed a radiator in push-pull config at the front). And by good I mean: -300W or less power consumption. - that will be equally fast across all resolutions not just 4K. -Don't care about ray tracing, prefer rasterization upgrade.
  7. Adored TV said there there would higher RMA with Ampere, but so far the news dont clarify if this a technical issue with the card, drivers or if this is reflection of people in denial not caring about power requirement increase if that brought them more performance while having subpar power supply.
  8. And trouble is starting for 3080 owners. https://wccftech.com/nvidia-geforce-rtx-3080-users-report-crashes-black-screens-during-gaming/ https://videocardz.com/newz/geforce-rtx-3080-sees-increasing-reports-of-crashes-in-games
  9. NVIDIA is learning from AMD, how to make their launches a trainwreck :D When the miners join the party the chaos will be complete :D
  10. Its not even out yet :D 3 more days in theory, but they will be all taken up quickly.
  11. Yeah Im half out now. Just waiting to see if AMD comes up with some decent rasterizing performance uplift. I dont give a rodents behind about ray tracing.
  12. And there's this. Im disappointed to know how Ampere wasn't meant to be as great as it technically could be just so few bucks could be saved. To compensate that NVIDIA just ramped up the marketing machine knowing people would be lining up to pre order even poorly built chips. tXb-8feWoOE
  13. yeah I tried to dissuade people away from it in these forums when it got launched but at some time I gave up because I was borderline bursting their bubbles so I stopped. w83UBXZVwDo
  14. I wouldn't touch these VRAM starved cards. There will be other models unveiled as soon as AMD drops theirs, or go for the later. We already know they will have more VRAM.
