Conclusion

...we wonder if AIB partners could do more to help true gamers get on board the latest-generation Ampere train.

It isn't getting any easier to evaluate high-end graphics cards amid such extraordinary market conditions. RTX 3080 Ti might well have been the best thing since 3DFX, but what use is that if you can't buy one for love nor money?

That being the case, we have to wonder if AIB partners could do more to help true gamers get on board the latest-generation Ampere train. Might cards such as the RTX 3080 Ti GamingPro first be made available to existing and verified Palit customers wanting to upgrade? Should repeat customers get to the front of the line? We don't have the answers, but for a lot of readers it is clear the current situation is far from satisfactory.

Getting back to the card in hand, Palit's review model does exactly what it is expected to do. Stock-clocked and custom-cooled, it offers practically identical performance to the Nvidia Founders Edition, and more importantly, provides almost the same in-game might of RTX 3090 at a lower SRP.

Bottom line: RTX 3080 Ti ought to be a prime candidate for enthusiast gamers who don't need a massive 24GB framebuffer, but with the risk of beginning to sound like a broken record, wouldn't it be nice if you could just go online and buy one?

If a joke is worth telling, it's worth telling over and over again, I say.

This and every other GPU at the moment it seems.

So, so true!
I see the values on 4K gaming, the FPS is to low on some of these titles still, it is still a myth with 4K gaming, it is very little niche of games where you can really benefit for actual high performance at ultra quality vs the price.

It stopped being funny long before the 3080 came out, though, and it's now not even a joke…
