the thing is I find it hard to justify buying 3090 just for 'vram future proof' when its ray tracing technology in infancy stage.
Same like anti aliasing last time...better 3080 now for 1440p/4k and then once ray tracing mature and become a luxury that dont gimp performance then new gen 5080/6080 in years time.
3090 aint about future proofing
think of like this
got a friend who choosed 3090.
here is what he said and not only him ya
he games at 4k.. been doing that since 980ti...
so now the BEST card that can DELIVER the highest frame rate is the 3090.
if there was a titan rtx during turing.. he would have bought it.. if it was sold in malaysia.. but no.
so 3090 aka strix, ftw3 ultra.. beats the 3080 oced easy.. cause 480/500w bios...
so how.. wait for 2 years.. nope.. his income no issue if u think of 3090-3080 = the difference divide by 24 month.. it negligible amount...
