Nvidia’s latest Ampere GPU is also the slowest, but that’s not a problem when it’s faster than last-gen’s second-fiddle. Can Nvidia keep up supply, and will it be enough against AMD?

If I have Rtx 3060 ti and all my graphics settings like ps5 and xbox series x graphics settings in games with dlss quality at 1440p and me personally I will be fine if some games goes to 30 fps like this consoles How long should I upgrade my rtx 3060 ti ? And it will last longer than the ps5 and xbox series x or not?
F-22raptor Vor 11 Tage
3060ti is about 25% faster than a ps5, 1440p will make the card last a bit less longer but dlss will help. It could last longer than the console generation but games look better than whats on console. ps5 in 5-6 years wont be able to run at 4k or 1440p. Because youre okay with 30fps 3060ti will last a while. I still have my 980 from 5.5 years ago, still good at 1080p in some games

Why won't you show the 1080p performance? Most people only have a 1080p monitor and the difference between 1440p and 1080p are not that great that I'd use my 2k monitor. I swapped that out for a 1080p monitor because I get a better performance!

Is a 650w PSU good enough for a 3060?
Jason D
Jason D Vor 24 Tage
I get so many different opinions on this... MSI recommends a 650w psu for gaming x trio 3060 ti. Various psu calculators estimate my max load at around 450w, even with a 5900x and potential 3060 ti. I bought both a sf600 and sf750. Based on my options of returning and selling, it's an almost $100 difference in price. Should I really be out $100 more just to get to above the 650w recommendation, despite having a platinum 600w?
Jason D
Jason D Vor 21 Tag
@Thoskö Music yeah I know nvidia recommends 600w, but for the msi one msi recommends 650w and tests show that they basically did raise nvidia's limits on the card by 50w. Regardless, 600w should still be fine, though. This is just my first build and I worry easily. I don't even game often or edit often, but I just don't want a shutdown when I "do" game or edit. If I don't find another 750w ins tock soon i will likely just keep the 600w, as it's pretty unlikely I'd have an isue.
Thoskö Music
Thoskö Music Vor 21 Tag
@Jason D Back when I had the 380 I used it with an i5 4460, which has a lower tdp (84 vs 105) when compared to the 5900x. I did run The Witcher 3 with that system though, and I remember both GPU and CPU being around 90-100%. Didn't measure exactly how much power my system was using but since it didn't shut down I'm assuming it was well under 550w. Board partners often tend to overstate PSU requirements a bit, I remember XFX recommending a 750W PSU for my 380 when in reality it could probably run just fine with a 500w PSU with the parts I used. Nvidia themselves recommend a 600W PSU which is likely already more than you need. Board partner cards will likely use a tad more power than the Founders' edition but again Nvidia will already have overstated the requirements. But I mean if you're really worried about it you could always just use the higher wattage PSU as it does give you more upgrade options later. IMO the price difference between the 3060ti and 3070 isn't worth it considering the 3060 ti isn't a lot slower and you don't get any extra VRAM. If you want something better than the 3060ti the only good options IMO get a 3080 or 6800xt
Jason D
Jason D Vor 21 Tag
@Thoskö Music the thing is, though, did you do anything that may max out the cpu and gpu both? I am worried that with certain editing programs, for instance, maybe it would push the 5900x and the gpu to their maxes. Based on testing I saw, the msi gaming x trio 3060 can get up to about 259w and the 5900x I think the max is supposedly 142w, so those along with the other components I came up with around 550w used, so it's really pushing it. Also, interestingly, the msi 3070 seems to only use a max of 10w more than the 3060, so maybe I should buy that card. the asus ones can sue even more than the msi (all of this is without OCing). Not that I have much choice. I can't get ANY card because the palce I ordered the msi from just keeps changing the date on it and I sold an evga one, thinking I'd get the msi one.
Thoskö Music
Thoskö Music Vor 21 Tag
Seems like a waste of money to be honest. I had an R9 380 before which has nearly the same tdp as the 3060 ti (190w vs 200w) and that worked fine with a 550w PSU.

We don't have a way to deal with scaplers? Yeah I think you could make a system to vastly help the situation. Limit one purchase per account or per credit/debit card with a waiting period before buying another, I'd say at least a week or two. Or you know what, just let customers order a product that way that is currently out of stock with the same limitations. Sure you have to wait a while longer to get your product, but your not buying it for 3x the cost.
