    1:32 Does the aggressive price of the RTX 3080 / 3000 series mean Big Navi will be good?

    Thanks for watching guys!

    • @Jahblo even if you upgraded the 9900k is like 800bucks and i dont think a 9700k is worth it…. my dad has a 8700k overclocked and a rtx2080 from 2yrs ago still strong. I paired it with my new LG CX 48″ tv/monitor and ran games Like control batt5 Metroid faycry 5 it was all fine but i did have to overclock his cpu to get good frames in shadows of tomb raider rtx on.

    • @bumperxx1 Thanks for the answer, man! I tried @5.0, with my current cooler the max stable was 4.8gz πŸ˜€ But yeah, I might get a new cooler and upgrade the CPU next year.. if it won’t be a bottleneck for the 3080, I won’t spend money on that now πŸ™‚

    • Hi I have a ryzen 7 1700, 16gb of ddr4, and a gtx 970 would it make sense to upgrade to a 3070 or should I wait for a 3060? (I play at 144hz 1080p)

    • Paul, Steve is catching up to you! 1.02M
      Startup and shutdown is when most HDD fail!

    • @Steruset if your doing 1080p gaming i would be sure any new 30 seris cards will be fine its 1080p. also you mite want to upgrade your cpu like 3600x or something. but then again 1080p ant hard to run.

  2. Hey Paul, I was wondering if you were aware of Moore’s Law is Dead’s expose about Nvidia’s 3000 series release and if/how it affects how you approach reviews? How do you balance potentially being manipulated by the big tech firms versus still trying to provide an accurate review? I don’t imagine it’s an easy line to walk so I was wondering how you guys handle it and if, while it wouldn’t affect the actual performance of the card, if it affects how you look at it overall as something you can recommend?

  3. Aggressive pricing? It’s still very expensive, and the $500, $700 and $1400 bucks is just your imagination, no AIB partner will sell it that cheap thanks to 320-350W….

  4. When it comes to Navi and price you forget about next gen consoles

    Love the Probing Paul videos! Kind of weird thing where i live, though. 3070 Founders Edition is listed on the Nvidia site for the same price as the absolute cheapest AiB 3070 in retail stores. If that will be the case, i might be tempted to get Founders Edition tbh. Tiny Zotac 3070 model vs. Founders Edition. Only issue i have with the founders cards are beautiful cards coming with an ugly adapter. Kinda baffles me that they would put so much effort into the card and add what looks like a $2 adapter with it. I know, i know, function over form, but the cards looks like works of art and the adapter looks like a cheap fan splitter

  7. Would it possibly be better to Sli 2 3080’s vs having one 3090?

  8. Paul, would you recommend buying a 4k 144hz IPS monitor like the 27GN950 for the future-proofing with an rtx3080, which can hopefully run 4k at around 100+ fps. Which is a high upfront expense but wouldn’t need upgrading until 8k gaming is a thing in 5/10 years. Or buy a “cheaper” QHD 144hz IPS monitor like the 27GN850? I really can’t decide.

  9. Will the triple pci slot help with the need of card sag or will 3090 users still have to add a support
