Nvidia’s got interesting ideas for managing the silicon shortage, and their latest tactic is to improve supply by making the RTX 3090 obsolete. A bold move - Could it work?

    I bought the 3080ti. It was the only card i could actually get at european msrp (1199 euro/1460) dollars. I rather paid that , than pay 800 dollars for a 3060. I had a 960, so i needed an upgrade. So its nice to finally hear a less salty review. Everybody knows pretty much every card is overpriced. This will not change anyway for a long time. Who knows, this is the new normal. Times change. It sucks.

    This video feels scripted by Nvidia. You can't really be that positive about an overpriced, garbage-value GPU.

    Doesn't matter my 2080to still has better graphics because 3Dvision mods still work with it. (Yes I'm salty)

    the bad taste of this video doesnt come from what linus SAID, its what he is not saying. If you dont compare this card to a 3080, or the lower rest of the product stack, you are actually practising NVIDIAs own marketing rather than sticking to your viewers intrest. The 3090 and 6900XT are stupid products, comparing any card to them is like telling people: "its atleast better than getting robbed lol" .... - dear Linus, that was a big mistake


    Yuck, this is basically just some slimy nvidia pr guy talking through linus. LTT is becoming the bottom-barrel tech channel for zoomers and uneducated peasants alike. No wonder they are starving for money every second, they can't help but lie and cheat their way into respect. Not sad they will never get it.

  • Dave Weldon

    I've been watching LTT in one form or another for years now. It's now all click bait, install honey, buy Nvidia overpriced crap and stuff from the LTT store. Hopefully they'll go back to the old days of being consumer advocates, but I suppose scale changes everything.

  • blitzwaffe

    To summarize: Linus: The RTX 3080 ti is a cheaper version of the RTX 3090 and actually makes sense for gaming unlike the 3090 which is really a Titan. It is a must buy at MSRP because despite its unappealing MSRP, the actual market value of these cards makes MSRP obsolete. Steve (Gamers Nexus): The RTX 3080 ti is an overpriced RTX 3080 and cannot justify itself through its performance. MSRP may not seem relevant, but market value still uses MSRP as a price floor and therefore still matters. This is Nvidia trying to get a slice of the reseller market. No one should ever buy this card for MSRP or higher.

  • Ryan Sullivan

    I don't think that this is a bad review I just think Linus *really* didn't expect it to cost over $1000

  • Strider

    And officially unsubbed from this paid trash review. Looks like Nexus, Jay and Digital Foundry are the only honest reviewers left.

  • edgehogR

    Linus just screwed himself with confidence.

  • TiagoTiago

    Bad segue indeed. But hopefully, Ting and other advertisers are familiar enough with how your weird/lolrandom/cringe/antijoke segues usually add a positive humorous touch to the sponsored segments. If it helps; if I hear some brand dropped you because of this failed segue joke, I will think less of them; even if this fail wasn't just a one time thing, anyone with a brain that looks into your work should see clearly that you're significant net-positive, associating positive emotions to the advertisements very consistently with your humorous segues, not to mention how your presence and own brand tend to imprint by osmosis on the sponsored subject the overall fondness and respect your audience has for you.

  • richilarious

    Linus screwed the pooch on this one

  • ctgamer

    Linus you’re so out of touch it’s becoming insane. This is nothing but a bad take.

    The amount of dishonesty and clickbait is getting insane. At this point you've become so big that you're just as bad as the outlets you were the 'good' alternative to. Guess heroes do live long enough to become villains after all. At least there's Jay and Steve still being honest and true.

    The price to performance value just isn't here when it comes to gaming, just as it wasn't there with the 3090. the 3090 has a second case use scenario in which 24GB frame buffer will have it's use while the 3080ti's 12GB is a marginal improvement at best. even if I had bottomless pockets of money to afford any PC parts I wanted I still would op for the 3080 over the 3080ti and the 3090. mainly because I'd still have the same mindset that twice the price for %10-%15 performance does make sense to me. saying it's price is okay because of the way the current market is completely tone deaf.

    Lol linus, i dont know where you see the value, but 3090 pricing is high as hell but at least it can be used to work with, 3080ti is nowhere near close in performance. 3090 is not for gaming so compare them in gaming benchmarks is silly.

  • B

    Should I wait for the next series of graphics to come out or do you think prices will have gone back to normal by then for rtx 30 series

    who was looking at 3090 for gaming...if they wanted 3090 then money was never an issue and makes the 3080ti is even more stupid. 100% agree with other reviews condemning the price to performance ratio. i love linustechtips but this leaves a bad taste on my mouth.

  • TheDiablosix6six

    Nvidia are the fucking Scalpers now and ur saying it's a good idea to buy even if u could get it at 1200...lost respect for linus!!

  • Firelsa200

    Even at that price, I wouldn't buy it if I could get it at MSRP, It's a bad price no matter what you try to tell me. I just wish you went back to telling us to wait instead of acting like these prices are ok and please stop shilling out to Nvidia like they did something amazing even though they just released a new GPU like they always do. The first LTT video I truly felt was heartless, and knowing you, you won't back down from what you said. Next time please just make a video that was well thought through and wasn't recorded before knowing the awful price.

    Almost double the price of the 3080 for just barely more than a negligible performance gain. Solid buy, right? Right?

  • jonlaw16

    8:20 Making a review before you know the price of something is not acceptable. This review is on the level of Tom's hardware "Just buy it!" article for first gen RTX cards. Flat out sloppy. This whole video really feels like LTT staff assumed the price would be $999 and then quickly edited in the *literal 2 second clip* of Linus's disappointed face. How can Linus state at 10:00 that "If you can get one at MSRP, it's a no brainer!" without knowing the price?? Yeah the current GPU market is hell, but even "once the dust settles" and everything is available for MSRP, the 3080Ti still won't be a good option over existing cards.

  • bdfunk88

    "Good price"? $1200 for a gaming oriented video card will never be a "good price" in my opinion (same thing with the 3090, even though its a Titan stand-in). Also we won't see it at that price for who knows how long with all this scalping. I've seen them for anywhere from $2000 to $4000 already. I've not disagreed with a review like this in a long time. I understand your position, but I don't feel as though it represents what the majority of PC gamers think or can afford to pay.

  • Edge64

    Today I was at the GN site and I have another comment for you. YES I made negative a comment on LTT for their review on the 3080 Ti. Before doing so I pulled all the benchmark numbers for the 3080 and the 3080Ti. I used the numbers from 5 separate youtube review sites Gamers Nexus, LTT, JaysTwoCents, Paul's Hardware and Hardware Unboxed. I averaged the benchmark numbers and found a 9.1% performance increase for the 3080Ti over the 3080. I mentioned the questionable 10% performance increase (9.1% in my findings) for the 70% boost in price, based on Nvidia's MSRP. I stated that for me and based on my findings, the 3080Ti is NOT a great value over the 3080. LTT's recommendation that the 3080Ti is a good value was based on it's performance and price to the 3090. My comment was based on my wallet and what I can get performance wise for the best price for gaming, that would be the 3080. I stand behind my view and comment to LTT. At no time was any other review site mentioned in my LTT comment. I find Nvidia in this instance to be Suspect at best and misrepresenting the 3080Ti performance value at worse. The 3080 and 3080Ti are aimed at gamers, in my opinion. The 3090 is not based purely on gamers but more to the graphic intense workload environment. So hearing LTT misrepresent the actual information in a Gamers Nexus review and try to negate what was actually stated by GN to boost LTT's suspect review. Good job LTT, you are sounding more and more like the BS marketing teams at Nvidia et al. This shade that was thrown at GN and the questionable "recommendation" for the 3080Ti proves my comment that LTT was WRONG in their 3080Ti review. Hey LTT, with your team of minions you should have been able to make a better argument for GN. Instead you went off and misrepresented Gn's info in their review of the 3080 Ti. That is on you Linus. GN - 3080 vs 3080Ti price to performance. LTT 3080Ti vs 3090 price to performance, two completely different review strategies. LTT didn't bother to do it's homework before throwing shade. It would seem your Canadian is a bit... wanting. Just WOW Linus.
