      Anyone still rocking a 6 year old GPU is going to be just fine with 60fps average

      >six year old card averages around 50fps on a horribly unoptimized game at ultra settings
      Seems pretty based to me.

      30fps is fine for singleplayer. 60 is fine for multiplayer competitive.

    I am still using this card and it blows me away at how I STILL get 60 fps in everything at 4k. I am still getting a 4090, but damn.

    I want a 4090 but I still think it's overpriced. Also there's added cost for the case you have to buy/rebuild your system just to support it.
    I may just play the most demanding games on med/low until the rtx 5080. Then again, nvidia is so retarded lately, it will probably end up weaker than the 4090 and twice the size/power consumption

    No, Nvidia learned from their mistake and will never make another card THAT future proof
    the whole RTX line up is proof of this

      What makes the 1080ti so good as opposed to future generations like the 2 and 3 series?

        weakest Nvidia card available that's a straight upgrade over it is the 3080 12gb

          Nvidia was so based back then, what happened

          I've got an evga 3080ti recently as a gift. How long would that realistically last me? I only game at 1080p, I can't really tell the difference otherwise

            all depends on what yuo wanna play and what you wanna play at

            great thing about pc gaming is it's all retroactive, you have years of great games you can play and completely ignore modern shit

            1080p60fps you are good for the entire generation and probably the next one too
            1080p120fps you might have to start turning down settings in a few years

            if you're playing anything but new AAA shit it will last until the card randomly dies

            a lot but 1080p is a bottleneck for that card, buy a 1440p monitor, no difference in visual fidelity imo but you will get better performance
            source: me, my 1080ti died and i got a 3080 during the scalping era

              Sure a 3080ti for 1080p is overkill now. But what about 4 yearrs from now? What about 6 or 8?

          2000 series launched like ass because they were too expensive, so they priced the 3000 series more appropriately but then we ran into scalpers buying everything up with bots to sell to crypto miners and now nvidia thinks it's still 2020 when the reality is no one wants a new gpu.

    11Gb too
    very wise purchase considering power to price ratio
    might wait for the 10,080 ti to upgrade lol
    (even then I'm keeping this card because I like tech-art)

    The generational performance leap for this card was staggering, and it wasn't priced ridiculously either. It was like a 122% increase over the previous generation and was priced only 50 dollars higher than the previous gen. Now you get the 4080 with is around 40% faster than the 3080 but costs about 500 fucking dollars more msrp. I hate nvidia so much it's unreal.

      >staggering
      the only thing staggering is that they're charging 900$ for a 60 card that was rebranded to a 80 card then rebranded to a 70 ti
      fucking inane retards falling for this

        Yep, and again the price is almost double the previous generation. At that point you're paying 1% more money for 1% more performance, it isn't even an improvement, it's stagnation and greed. This is why the 4000 series is Nvidia's worst selling launch of all time and you get paid marketers on this board thinking insulting you is going to convince you to buy this trash.

    I love my 1080 ti. I kinda wish I got a second one in case it goes because every option that came afterwards has crazy drawbacks.

    >what happened
    well some cunt with an MBA realized that the GTX 1080/1080ti were not practicing the proper degree of market segmentation, and they were leaving money on the table.

    but you know this, i know this, everyone knows this. MBA's and their ilk ruin everything. and the
    >money left on the table
    is bone chillingly brutal when taken to its logical conclusions. you know all those futuristic dystopias where corporations act like quasi-sovereign states? yeah, that's how you get there.

    good business used to be:
    >both parties feel like they got a fair deal, and would do it again without hesitation
    now good business is:
    >we've extracted the maximum amount of revenue from this customer, leaving a violated empty husk behind. on to the next mark
