"Titan-class card" - again with this nvidia BS?
It's not, it's a catchphrase from nvidia and the media keeps playing this tune. It's only a more expensive 3080 Ti, which will be proven soon. A halo product for people with more money than sense.

"Fastest current graphics card, period" - Wrong, it's not, it's based on the game and if it's optimized for nvidia (DLSS) or AMD (and no DLSS). In the first case it wins in the latter one it gets beaten by RX 6800 XT and RX 6900 XT, sometimes by a mile... as much as it beats them in the first case with DLSS ON, but then AMD does it by raw power. So it's 50/50, period.

"8K DLSS potential" - yeah, sure "potential". If you count dreaming of 8k gaming potential too, then yes. Again nvidia BS propagated by media still.

"Needs a 4K display, maybe even 8K" - no it does not "need" an 8k display unless you want to be majorly disappointed and play at 30 fps only. That is today, with today games and today's graphics demands, but tomorrow and next gen games you can kiss it goodbye at 8k. Another nvidia BS, again supported by the media.

GJ @ author, nvidia is pleased by your article.

Yeah, the Raspberry Pi stuff is getting annoying. They brought out their 5800x review way after the fact, too. Kind of odd. I understand it's a difficult year to review things, but months later than most review sites isn't a good look when that's supposed to be the sites specialty.

The rest of the world its a 3080Ti.
[/QUOTE]

Lots of people have been waiting for the RTX 3080ti. 20GB has a nice ring to it and many of those people already a few years ago paid in excess of $1,400+ for their MSI Gaming Trio 2080ti. Should for any reason a 3080ti fail to appear, then those with deep pockets, will simply buy a '3090' and call it a day. Besides future proofing with a '3090' is also being seen as a big deal and as more demanding 4K/5K game titles and 38-inch plus high resolution monitors are becoming the new norm. Of course once someone is ready and capable in shelling out $1,800+ for a custom MSI Trio RTX 3090 without blinking an eye, one surely is then moving in the upper reaches of the food chain, and where a few hundred dollars here or there have absolutely no meaning. Dispite what any commentaries, opinions and reviews are preaching.
