Why did the guy from Nvidia that was giving this presentation keep pronouncing "Ti" like "tie" instead of "tea eye?" I've never heard it pronounced like that in any previous Nvidia presentation.

The RTX 3080 Ti I think will not be "future proofing" itself with just a mere 12 GB memory being proffered. It's almost a year late in coming to the market and will still not be available in large MSRP quanitities for some months ahead. The RTX 3090 with its 24GB is only about $300 more. Meanwhile the gaming developers have moved on and with many of the new action titles already testing and challenging the lower spectrum 3000 series cards. Also many power hungry gaming monitors with much higher resolutions have landed and with up to 32-38 inches being now the new gaming norm and immersion talk. If I could readily afford in coming up with $1,200 for a 3080 TI, then $300 more is "chumb- change" and the right thing to do would then be to swing for the RTX 3090 and sitting pretty for at least another 3-years or so. Thoughts?

Because TI, is short for titanium, it's actual name is 3080 titanium, so he was probably just sounding out the start and hacking off the end.

Yeah, no.


Steam Hardware Survey continues to not surprise with results.
"One of those stats is that 1080P is the most used resolution among those that use Steam with a 34.72% share. The next most used resolution is 1366x768 with a 26.61% slice of the pie. Why such 'low' resolutions? That's actually likely due to a number of different factors, the more probable being that Steam is installed frequently on laptops with low resolution screens.


To further add evidence to such a theory, the Intel HD 4000 is still the most popular GPU that's reported by Steam. It comprises 6.32% of the user-base, with the GTX 970 trailing at 3.85%. Again, that could mean that it's reported by all Sandy Bridge CPU's as being installed, but could also, again, the result people using laptops for gaming. "

I would argue that not even this is close to representative considering most "gaming" is done on phones and most phone resolutions are decently high, higher than 1080p.
