The more rumours come out the more "downgrades navi31 gets"

First it was an MCM GPU massive beast the came the downgrades. Cut down to 1 GPU with 15k cores and 500mb infinity cache, then cut down to 12k cores and 380mb cache and then supposedly only launch q1 2023.

It's just had another spec update, instead of 32gb vram it's been cut down to 24gb, but there is an upgrade too - 256bit bus to 384bit so bandwidth now estimated at 800GB/s

It's all made up rubbish as always for click-baiting, just wait till AMD and Nvidia state the specs of these GPUs, all everyone is doing is feeding this rumour mill that never ends, even tech youtubers that were "respected" have gone down this same line now just to get clicks on their channels.

Only thing we know for sure is prices and power use is going up for both camps, anyone expecting a $700/£650 4080 is dreaming this time round, expect $999 at the top end for the FE model and AIBS to be more and if lucky $850 for the FE, these are not going to be cheap cards this time round due to the power circuitry required to run them and component prices have gone up and shipping since 2020 and just look at the state of the £ compared to the $ :eek:.

Im actually quite sick of the whole rumours and leaks industry, GPU's are getting worse they are reaching the level of iphones where there is entire youtube and twitter channels dedicated to just pumping out made up "leaks" every weak

Well I’m hoping for a July release as my 3090 just stopped working after gaming. Hopefully we are not looking at another nightmare release like on the 3xxx series where some people had to wait months.

Ouch. Do you have warranty or bought from a scalper?

I bought it from overclockers so should be within warranty but I just need to get my old psu and graphics card from storage to run a few tests and confirm it’s definitely the GPU rather than a PSU with a dodgy rail.

Wouldn't it make sense for AMD to release a high end single die graphics card in 2022, that is as powerful as they can make it on TSMC's 5nm EUV process?

The way I see it, MCM is just bolt on performance, which loses some performance (likely 10 or 20%) between the interface, so it's probably something that can wait.

Thinking of building a sff build next year with a Corsair sf750 power supply. I'm hoping it will be enough for a 4080 or a 4070. I guess I will have to wait and see.

I'm running my 6900XT on the same PSU without issue. You might get away with a next gen AMD GPU but maybe not the two you've listed above.

I think there is 850w sff psu as well if you need it

I love the Fractal Torrent, but it is huge. Perhaps the Nano would give you more options while remaining SFF?

Thanks for all the suggestions I was looking at the Dan H20. I like the look of the meshilicious and torrent nano.

Hopefully my EVGA SuperNOVA 850 P2 PLATINUM 850W will be up to the task of powering a lovely 4080 or 4070. Hopefully be able to undervolt considerably like you can with the ampere cards.

I'm thinking if you can get hold of a 4080fe - hopefully more RAM, hopefully for £800/850- sell the 3080fe for £650 or near to, to the can't waits/I've waited long enough. job done. Or too optimistic?
