Why it's all MLCC and it's not the case for the 3080 or 3090 ?
The 3080 TUF, both models, are all MLCC ..... It's kind of irrelevant now anyway because the problem was never with the capacitors, it was with the drivers and how they manipulated the boost clocks, basically the clock boost had overshoot causing it to spike the clock speed when a load was suddenly taken away

The RX 5700 XT basically had the same sort of problem causing the same basic problem the difference here was Nvidia fixed the problem with the drivers in a few days rather than a few months ..... AMD actually lost market share in the desktop AIB market after the RX 5700 line came out, a full 9 points because they flubbed the launch of the RX 5700 line and the lower tier models fizzled. People were buying RTX 2060 Supers even though they didn't perform quite as well for the same cost just because they worked

I think these 3 fan versions of the 3070s are going to be really good overclockers compared to the 3080 and 3090 because they won't have to be power limited so much

Unless the 3070 is already relying on higher average boost clocks than a 3080 to achieve its performance to begin with. The 3070 is only about two-thirds of a 3080 as far as its graphics cores are concerned, but it's promising around three-quarters of the performance. I doubt the cards will leave much overclocking headroom on the table.
