    I kinda like ARM being this historical neutral ground in the semiconductor world, but I can't imagine our current federal regulatory climate will ever not just rubber stamp things unless Trump has some personal issue with one of the companies.

    If you were thinking of pairing the new king of the GPUs with a Core i7-4770K (overclocked) from mid-2013, or maybe even a 3770K or 2600K, the worst-case results at 1080p should at least give you pause. There are plenty of situations where your maximum performance is nearly cut in half. With the RTX 3080, the Core i9-10900K is 70% faster at 1080p medium, though the gap drops to 47% at 1080p ultra.

    Czer secretly hates vidya and only wants minor performance upgrades on his cpu every 10 years.

    For those not looking to buy at top end of this generation and sticking with Intel CPUs, my new rona box (which was very price/performance targetted) using an i5-9600k is probably still a great candidate for new RTX 3080 (or more practically speaking, the RTX 3070 at this price point).

    Looks like the cpu bottlenecking isn't too bad between 9___ series and 10___ series, but the 4___ series looks like straight garbage trying to run the new GPUs. So yeah, definitely getting that 3070... NVidia knocked this shit out of the park.

    Czer hates AMD because Lisa Su said Putin was a balding turd and the Russian national food dish is a bowl of farts

    The irish drink potatoes and eat potatoes. The only other good combo is drinking rice and eating rice.
