And yes, I’m sure the whole 2% of Steam consumers who actually own 4K exposes are well up for the RTX 3080. But what about the tribe who already own an RTX card? I’d be feeling quite exasperated if I’d spent PS7 00 -odd on an RTX 2080 card in the last year or so simply for this to come along now, and I feel specially bad for the people who bought RTX 2080 Tis, whose PS1000/ $1000+ graphics cards are soon going to be shown up by the RTX 3070 when it opens for literally half that extent next month.
