    Precisely because its a new architecture. How is that so hard to believe? Even if its not the values i suggested nvidia has to be incredibly stupid to not change tdps for a new architecture.

    When Ampere goes mobile I'mma be right over here with my 10 pound laptops that an handle an actually decent TDP.

    That’s the upside to having a beefy burrito. You have thermal headroom to work with. People can’t expect the same level of performance between the Area51M and a thin and light gaming notebook ala Razer Blade or MSI GE. There is only so much copper and fans you can stuff into something of that size.

    RTX 3080 laptops (beefy bois excluded) should be ecstatic if they can match desktop 2080 performance.

    I'm already within 10% of desktop 2080 performance on my thin and light so if thats all they can do it will be sorely dissapointing.

    If the laptop 3080 doesnt match desktop 3070/2080ti performance its a failure.

    Nvidia releases more RTX 3000 spec details through Reddit Q&A session

    Regarding the confusing double CUDA cores, Nvidia states that the new Ampere microarchitecture was designed “to achieve twice the throughput for FP32 operations compared to the Turing Streaming Multiprocessors (SM). To accomplish this goal, the Ampere SM includes new datapath designs for FP32 and INT32 operations. One datapath in each partition consists of 16 FP32 CUDA Cores capable of executing 16 FP32 operations per clock. Another datapath consists of both 16 FP32 CUDA Cores and 16 INT32 Cores. As a result of this new design, each Ampere SM partition is capable of executing either 32 FP32 operations per clock, or 16 FP32 and 16 INT32 operations per clock. All four SM partitions combined can execute 128 FP32 operations per clock, which is double the FP32 rate of the Turing SM, or 64 FP32 and 64 INT32 operations per clock.”​

    I think he's saying 10 000 is really 20 000 or even 40 000 cores compared to Turing..which means this is the first time I buy a flagship since the 6970m days...you simply put are outta your mind not to buy the 3090 since it will probably have a 4k longevity of 4 years and 10 years at 1080p 1440p being the sweet spot.

    I'm usually right when new cards come since the 8800 days..but this time I have my doubts...hard to tell what Nvidia will do with such a high tdp. I think you guys are blatantly wrong comparing apples to apples...Nvidia will figure a way to close the gap

    Nvidia chose to market the 3090 to gamers, but unless a 3090 will benefit you professionally, or you're related to Jeff Bezos, don't buy it. It makes very little sense to spend $1500 on a GPU just to play games. Get a 3080 at almost half the price, and then upgrade again a few years down the road. The best way to future proof is to save some cash now so you have more to spend on upgrades in the future.

    Yeah actually you guys are probably right about the 3080 but then again the latest and greatest has come at a premium
