If the specs and pricing is true, Nvidia will be scrambling to lower prices. They'll still hold the performance crown, but price/performance could sway towards AMD.

If the 3060 uses the same die as the 3070, then it means the 3070 is down to 128bits-wide bus. I hope AMD pulled a small memory efficiency miracle to make it work out fine. I was hoping for a 192bits bump and 6GB baseline for the lower-midrange as 4GB seems too low for RX580-class performance on the 3060.

On paper, the 3080 doesn't sound bad, but I'm wondering about the power consumption. Looks like this will be another generation of hot cards. Not that it's a deal breaker or anything, but at 250W being "mid-range" is a hard sell for the expected performance of the high end... With just 50W extra to work with, I don't have much faith on seeing anything that can touch the 2080ti, like at all.

Cheers!

Rumored TDP listed in the article for the 3080 is 150W, not 250W.

Yep Nvidia has the performance crown but most that buy GPUs are looking for cards in the $200 to $300 range that is where the majority spend their money. If AMD wins that segment they will be doing great.
