Yes but you are complaining about price and yet spending more money on a cooler that does very little. Nvidia didn't rip you off, you ripped you off and many of us told you so before you bought it. Where was AMD to keep competition and prices in check? Who supported Nvidia's over inflated prices? Not me, I was in the market for a new card but I won't buy Nvidia unless they deliver the goods. The same goes for AMD. I won't buy an AMD card until they have competition for IRAY. There is nothing I can do about that.

If All I did was game...I would buy AMD without issue as long as they had solid drivers for one year prior to the release and the card was faster. When the Nvidia 6800 was released I didn't buy it, I went with the ATI X800XT-PE for the extra performance because performance was what I needed most at the time and SM3.0 was not established in the gaming scene and would not be during the 6800's lifetime. In the same vain, I didn't care about the RTX capabilities of the 2000 series because I knew they would be of limited use and the performance of the card was turds.

Right now I am still in the market for a new card. If I was a gamer I would buy the first card to hit the market because all of my gaming has been on hold waiting for something worthwhile to be released. Being that I am utilizing IRAY to create CGI, I will buy Nvidia regardless of when they launch because they are the only ones that have competitive GPU rendering in DAZ studio.

I'm such a victim to Nvidia's Ultimate Countdown. They're in the year 2000 obviously talking about the GeForce 2 Ultra and various gaming titles on their Twitter page. Interesting way to build hype for a new generation.

That day has yet to come. The last CPU I bought from AMD was the FX-60 and I have not ever purchased a GPU from AMD because they have never had the better product when I was in the market for new gear. Not a single time.
I'm not upset about anything. You never put me in my place, you demonstrated you don't know what you are talking about, and just showed your bias and blind thinking. All you do is result to personal attacks. If you actually stop going of 5+ year old articles as discussed before and start looking at current data, you will find out you are full of crap. Now stop with your BS as it has no place in this thread. You want to talk about your conspiracy theories.. start a new thread, as they are not relevant to here.

@SirPauly I share your excitement for a new 3D product. It's been a while and I'm more interested in this launch than normal due to the long wait. I remember the GeForce 2, I skipped it and bought the Voodoo 5. I had a voodoo 3 and a TNT 2 pro at the time but I bought into the hype of dual GPU's on a single board. 2X AA became a reality at that time. Fond memories.

You have the impression that I care about your opinion. I guess when you get some real facts, you might be right about a fact is a fact. But start your own thread to bitch about AMD and your conspiracy theories. It's getting old to hear it here where it has no relevance.

Boo hoo, if you don't care then stop crying. Facts were stated, denial was established, end of story.

No.. you gave 5+ year old articles (2 IIRC) which where not facts, they where opinion pieces, which supported your opinion which turned out to be wrong. I'm not the only one who has called you out on your crap in this thread because your conspiracy theories have no relevance to the 3080.. (hmm.. I remember telling you the same thing before). Start a new thread for it if you want to argue with yourself about it.

In 2000, bought a Voodoo 5500 and a GeForce 2 Gts - Giga Texel Shader, hehe, always enjoyed that wording. The quality of fsaa on the Voodoo 5500 was exceptional for its time.

I remember playing Hitman one in Glide mode I think it was. At the time I was rocking 1024X768 resolution but that changed shortly after. GeForce 3 was a big step forward. Max Payne maxed out was the ultimate rush back then.

I noticed you usually don't buy bleeding edge these days. What card are you interested in at the moment based on the rumors? Do you plan to buy at launch or wait for the dust to settle? Is AMD a possibility for your gaming needs? Sorry for all the questions but I'm curious where your interests are with all the hype floating around the net at the moment.
