Or a few at 120fpsWhat a time to be a PC gamer. Remember when a 1080Ti at 700 was the high end. I now envy consoles gamers that can get a console near MSRP, which is much more doable, and just enjoy most games 4K30 or even 60fps.
Isn't it redundant to have both a good PC and an XSX?Or a few at 120fps
However 4K on console does not look as good as pc. I have a Series X and RTX3080, the Series X is very impressive for its price but in the same games there is still a noticeable improvement in detail/quality of the pc versions. It is comparing apples and oranges even if both say 4K 60fps.
I prefer PC for my FPS and Racing games but many do not support crossplay and some friends play XBox only. Where crossplay is supported it is good to have the wife on the XBox and I use the PC while we play with friends. I also get a lot of benefit from Game Pass Ultimate and while the PC looks better on the 4k 120Hz TV it is more convenient for a quick game to use the XBox instead of moving the PC from its setup in my office/man cave.Isn't it redundant to have both a good PC and an XSX?
I could understand the case of having both, if your PC would be old/outdated, but I don't get it in your case...
Good PC with PS5 is the best combo if you ask me, best of both worlds.
Same bus width as the RTX 3080 but with the slightly slower boost speeds of the RTX 3080 Ti.
Seems it will be slightly slower than the other 3080s right up until the available memory (either 10GB or 12GB) gets exhausted on the others - then it will shine. Not a bad card for the long term as the 20GBs will ensure that performance doesn't fall off a cliff when games start regularly using 12+GBs of VRAM at ultra settings. (I've seen Horizon Zero Dawn use 9.5+GBs VRAM in just the beginning tutorial area at ultra settings and 1440p)
Unfortunately these Ti cards MSRP's should be only slightly higher than the original FE RTX 3080. <sigh>
I know scalper/miner prices are double MSRP, but MSRP is always used as a base multiplier for pricing. NVIDIA (and AIB mfgs.) put their greed on full display when they released the RTX 3080 Ti with a 71% price increase for only 12% performance increase (average).
Alright, I understand now.I prefer PC for my FPS and Racing games but many do not support crossplay and some friends play XBox only. Where crossplay is supported it is good to have the wife on the XBox and I use the PC while we play with friends.

I understand the feeling as I have the exact feeling, but towards Xbox. Zero interest in it or GP. PC + PS is the way for me.There are no PS5 exclusives that make me want to buy the console. I don’t think it would get used enough.
Through some selling and buying I recently obtained a new reference RX 6900 XT for a 'net' cost below MSRP. I haven't had a chance to tweak performance much as I'm on vacation. Hopefully, I'll be able to tune it nicely in the next couple weeks.6800XT owner here. HZD is a great game, very likely to end up in my top games or at least open worlders ever (and the backstory/lore is top sci-fi writing too) I can tell you that once out of the beginning of the game the load only gets harder.
Anyway, maxing it out at 3400x1440 with that 6800XT (with 5800X, 32Gb 3600MHz RAM) gets me 90-100 fps averaging 13-13.5Gb VRAM use. Given an hour or so to back and forth with game settings, Radeon software and tests... I could probably tweak those figures around a bit with little real loss to gameplay, but still I'm ok left with a 3Gb overhead, possibly enough to do me ok should I give 4K a go, even if I may have to cap fps. Drivers are absolutely fine, power draw and temps a decent snip under a 3080. Btw as for the RAM the game uses 15-16Gb, so glad I went a little ott with that.
