So, Nvidia 3000 series (or whatever they call it) is imminent (only 6 days to go now) and I hope ya all or AMPED (or maybe cynical?) like me rt. now. I know there would be much speculation and views on nvidia 3000 series , so I though why not create a separate thread for all these?

Here you all can impart ur "gyan" about how would this series affect the market, how will it play, is there marketing on it ( the biggest breakthroughs in PC gaming since 1999 ) to aggressive, how would the launch affect amd, how long would it take to reach Indian market, would it even affect the Indian market, would the upgrade be worth it etc etc.

I would be very interested in what ya all think about these!

My personal question is this would there be a budget offering from nvidia for its rtx cards, or would there be a gtx version like when 2000 series launched?

Very much unlikely. Their budget offerings will be priced atleast 25k or more, should they really exist.

That's a bummer really. I theorise it would result in lower prices for the current offerings though. Any idea how long will it take for the new series to reach laptop market?

I am waiting the RTX 3060 or basically what they'll offer in the 30-40k range. I plan to build a rig by the end of this year and the new consoles are really confusing things up for me.

True. I also plan to upgrade my graphics card this year. Only the imminent launch of these graphics cards stopped. The way nvidia puts it , it may very well be the GOAT.

Benchmarks will come after launch I think, though a number of people may have received it in advance for benchmarks but perhaps the benchmarks will be under some embargo until release.

Maybe, the cards look promising though, not some BS like 2000 series. Hope the budget lineup also releases , though amd's intention of launching 5300 is now clear.

decent bunch of performance is all we are looking for anyway, no one is interested in RTX
But muh raytracing.

I think realtime raytracing has become somewhat mature since the RTX cards came out. Perhaps during the lifetime of the 3000 series it will become available in all existing engines.

Depends on the kind of games I guess, something like Witcher 3 or Metro Exodus, ray tracing matters..
Games like DOOM won't matter. Raytracing won't be mainstream until they can fix the performance penalty. The loss of performance doesn't justify the improvement in graphics, at least in most titles. BF5 may be only exception, but idk. Im a peasant GTX 1xx series guy :(

Kind of off topic but do you guys know you can run a full cloud game stream server on mumbai availability zone for all major cloud providers (AWS, GCP, Azure).

Im running Nvidia Tesla on the cloud and installed Division 2, runs fine,i get a latency of 50 ms because I live in bbsr.

IMO, Raytracing in general does not matter that much. But since it's the current buzzword, everyone (AAA at least) will try to get onboard. This could result in more optimizations or better architecture support. But yeah, it finally comes down to how it's used.

You mean your own server (is that even possible?) or using some cloud provider? IMO India's infra is kinda crap so unless the servers are really close (same city) I don't think anyone else would have a good experience.

How are you running it? AWS EC2 instances with Nvidia AMI?

It matters a LOT in minecraft.

EC2 G4 instances can work, they have Nvidia Tesla, so you will need to install a driver that is game compatible.
But GCP is a better option, here you can select CPU and GPU individually unlike AWS.
No, man, mumbai availability zone I get a 40 ms ping + 10 ms encode/decode latency to play, and that too from a bad local fibre connection (20mbps). its good enough for most games, not multiplayer or FPS. Stadia is the exact same thing, when google introduces stadia they just gonna add a software wrapper around this and call it a product. Infact when I launched division 2, ingame it actually thinks im playing on stadia lol.
Games like Witcher, shadow of tomb raider, etc. run fine.

And how do you stream video from it? Does it have some sort of streaming endpoint? Also, what about controls?
