I pre-ordered a TUF o/c. The Reseller informed me today that I moved from no. 2 to no. 1 in the queue. I moved 2 positions in 6 weeks. :ROFLMAO: Anyways, I'll probably get it by mid November.

Indeed


Heard Back orders over 7000 already at overclockers and prices are whack

You are 100% correct on this.
I bought a Zotac Trinity on launch day when they went live at 14:00, my order got through at 14:30.

I was 26th in the queue, I am now 16th... I have contemplated switching to a more active queue but the price gouging does not entice me to pay a lot more for 2% performance.
Instead just ordered myself the LG Nano IPS 27" monitor, and that covers the price difference on the new cards

So watch dogs legion post patch still runs like shit

I played it for about an hour. It's definitely playable with a few settings changes, if you're using GSync or Gsync Compatible.

I made a few changes to the settings though.
1440p. Medium Raytracing. DLSS Quality.
High shadows.
High environment.
Headlight shadows on your car only.
No motion blur.
Everything else on max.
Sharpening at 15 in the menu with brightness/contrast.

Around 60-80 most of the time. Minor dips into the 57-60FPS range driving around Westminster where there are a lot of NPCs.

The city really feels alive though, stunning at night with so many lights and reflections. So many people and cars too.
And I love the talk radio while driving.

I have no idea... The Reseller won't /can't commit to a date. I'll probably only get it mid to end November. I can understand people's frustration - I know a guy who is no. 10 in line. I can only imagine how he must feel.

Trash optimization on that game. I already uninstalled. Now I wish we had gotten Black Ops instead 🤣

DLSS can't even save that game. Imagine.

Do you have the ubisoft store thing installed and logged in as well? Ubisoft Connect or something. It uses the nvidia spyware app to connect to the ubisoft spyware app so that they can link to each other and spy some more. because you know they gotta milk every bit of data out of you they can.
Hi my friend, it finally worked now while running Uplay connect on my pc and geforce experience.... thanks

Okay, I have been playing Watch Dogs Legion now, after Geforce Experience finally redeemed the game. I must say, it looks pretty good and play really nice. My 3080 is basically locked at 2070 to 2085mhz the entire time playing. I found for temps it dropped to 2070mhz after it reached I think 36c or there about. Currently stuck just after disarming the bomb, not sure how to get the key to open the door where I need to walk through.

Look, maybe it is my stupidity, but I cannot find out how to scan / copy the key just after disarming the bomb in the first section. Seriously, I tried so many keys but nothing seem to work. I cannot seem to access the camera in the room where the key is. Please, if someone can maybe give me some guidance it would be greatly appreciated.

At the bottom. There is one of those red panels. You need to physically walk up to it and press e ... It will unlock the door on top

Also with scissors Jack's hit the middle mouse button to control it

Apparently the new 3080 Ti will have a 384bit mem bus.

Player 1 has entered

Kind of underwhelmed with my first run of port royal and my 3080 Eagle OC on stock, literally a bit more then 1000 points higher then my 2080Ti did. Temps are averaging 54 degrees, fans at 2500rpm are not really noisy so great air cooling and boost clocks around 1935mhz. The gigabyte software only shows power slider at 100 percent so they don't let you push more but then again 100 for this card is 340w so let me tinker then.

This is what I was worried about. I got my 2080ti all the way to 10600 in port royal and 16800 on time spy

Okay playing around haven't tried tweaking the memory but with base clock the Eagle OC allowed me to go to 1985mhz without changing power limit, this gives a 2190mhz boost clock, avg port royal clock speed was 2025mhz and avg temps 55 degrees. score was 12003

Yes fully agree with you Velo even the fps on port royal is close to what my 2080Ti and score was around where yours is.

I literally think the Eagle must be like one of the easy OC ones somehow on stock 340w power limit this thing hauls for what it is, I wonder if Afterburner or something would give me the power unlock on this card as I think they said you can do a 109% power limit with it but cooling on it is phenominal

I hear some cannot make it past 2000mhz or to 2100mhz well this card is a 2200mhz card pretty much probably the lottery I guess.

What mem speeds should I attempt?
