WCCFTech speculates this is actually the 3080, and it wouldn't surprise me if it were considering architecture refinement and a node shrink are both involved. If nVidia is able to get a 30% improvement for every card across the stack and AMD is able to follow suit, it could be a big win for everyone...

...Assuming the prices are based in reality, something which AMD has stated they would be this time around...

I'm already reserving funds for the release of these cards - and probably the new Ryzen refresh too. It's going to be quite an upgrade (and expensive)!

The results seem logical unlike others saying 60% faster than 2080 Ti.
I am happy with my OCed 2080 Ti which scores 16100pts in Time Spy graphics test with an 1800X@3.925Ghz.
Not worth the hassle of selling mine and buy a 3000 series at full price, I got my 2080 Ti used for 40% less than retail price 8 months ago.

Imma hold judgement until actual reviews of these things are available. There's still no known price either.

Turing is a joke compared to Pascal. Anyone who already had a 1070Ti and up, didn't really need to upgrade.

I had an RX580 and I upgraded my 12 years old 21" 1080p60hz monitor to a 4K60 HDR 27".
The only GPU that can play all games 4K60 is the 2080 Ti, it even needed an OC in some games to max out everything including RT and except AA which is not needed at 4K.

I'm set with my EVGA 2070 Super XC Ultra Gaming for a while. It's not a 4k60 card across the board, but the sacrifices to make 4K60 are minor in most cases, not counting ray tracing, and it's dead silent.

Heh, by the time I'm ready to upgrade next time, it may be more simple to just sell my entire tower and start again...

Pascal was amazing - but really only the 1080TI - in SLI. No experience with the lower end Pascal cards. Went from sometimes being able to get decent FPS at 4K with the dual 1080Tis to 120fps at 4K with the dual 2080TIs. Maybe it's acceptable if you are gaming at 1080 or 1440.

3080 - $800 ish - likely this is the SKU that is getting the 30%
3080TI - $1100 to 1200
3090/Titan - RTX Titan was $2500 at launch - so somewhat expect $2K+ - will likely be the only one to allow NVLink...

Hopefully this is an underclocked 3080ti. I can't see the 3080 being this much faster than the 2080ti and I can't see the 3090, a card that makes no sense to me, being only this much faster than a 2080ti either.

It will be interesting to see what Nvidia does with the 3090. They basically removed Titan from the gaming market with the RTX Titan and its 24GB of RAM and $2500 price tag. Now, they're naming its successor the 3090 which means it will be targeted at gamers. Nvidia is out of their mind if they think gamers are going to plunk down $2500 for a useless 8 extra GB of RAM (assuming 16GB for the 3080ti), and only 5% or so more performance vs the 3080ti, which the Titan RTX was vs the 2080ti. If they want gamers to buy the 3090, they're going to have to get the price under $2000, and create a bigger performance gap between the 3080ti and the 3090. So maybe this leaked card is the 3080Ti and the rumored 50-75% faster card is the 3090.

Personally, I'm more interested in the ray tracing performance. That's the future, and the quicker its performance closes in on rasterized performance, the quicker we will see adoption and advancement of the technology.

The whales would still pick it up...

Look how few gamers you see online with Titan RTX's compared to previous generation Titan's. By calling this a 3090, Nvidia is saying don't use this for anything but gaming. There are not enough gamers out there willing to drop $2500 on a video card to make it a viable product for just gaming.

That's economics for you.
I'm surprised by how many bought 2080Tis just to play at 1080p...
If they got the money, they'll do it - to hell with what reviews say otherwise... if they even bothered to watch those.
If I made 6 figures - or high 5 - I'd probably buy one too...

By calling this a 3090, Nvidia is saying don't use this for anything but gaming.
"By calling this a Geforce model, Nvidia is saying don't use this for anything but gaming."
That part needed adjustment, although all we get with this rumor is a probable number, and nothing more.
Product lines:
Geforce - gaming
Titan - gaming/professionals - the gaming marketing ended with Titan Volta though. Titan Xp was the last one with that crap.
Quadro - professionals
DGX - datacenter

There are people who use and get by with Geforce cards for their graphics rendering projects just fine, whereas a Quadro would break the bank.

There are not enough gamers out there willing to drop $2500 on a video card to make it a viable product for just gaming.
The fact that anyone would pick it up for that is still a problem. Look at how bad the gaming industry's gotten with the microtransactions macrotransactions.
You might not spend a dime on them, but SOMEONE is, and that still gives those companies an incentive to keep it up.

Sure, they won't sell as many 3090s as they would 3060s, but they're still making a profit nonetheless, and that's all that matters - profit.

"Loaded gamers aren't a thing."
That's the impression I got from the 1st and 3rd lines, but maybe I'm reading too much into it - and if I am - sorry.
