The RTX 3080 Update

The RTX 3080 is nVidia’s latest, and the first release in the 3xxx line. If you want the tl;dr straight away: It is good, and we recommend buying it if the price fits your budget.

If you want the slightly longer list of pros and cons, without reading reviews for hours (we do that for you), then you have come to the right place.

If you missed the nVidia Ampere reveal, you can read a recap here. Ampere, like nVidia’s previous ~2-3 generations of chips, should be really good. Just… be sure to stay realistic and not to get your hopes up too high, or believe too deeply in marketing material. Every modern product launch promises to dramatically alter your life, but few genuinely deliver.

While we wait for the new cards to launch and undergo benchmark testing, we have some other updates:

The AMD “XT” CPU Non-Update

Nothing lasts forever, and that includes “hot” runs of success. AMD’s last two years have been a series of CPU hits, helping AMD dominate the full spectrum of consumer CPU market segments. At one point, AMD had 15 (out of 16) of our tiers! This success came on the back of the efficient 7nm CPU architecture, AMD’s decision to have hyperthreading on everything, and competitive prices. Well done, AMD.

Well… till now.

The COVID-19 Computer Hardware Availability Mini-Update

(Image originally by vperemen.)

A virus! A virus! My PC parts for a virus! Or maybe I’ve got the sentiment backwards there…

Instead, get your medical advice from the Ministry of Health, or CDC, or another qualified medical official.

But the virus is affecting the hardware marketplace in general, and Logical Increments in particular.

March 2020 Update Feature Image

Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears! Also: Greetings.

The topic of this month has been the Coronavirus epidemic, so you are probably expecting some sage advice in this update. We will not give you any medical advice, because… we are not qualified to give medical advice. We research computer parts, not medicine! So please visit the official website of the Ministry of Health (or Department of Medicine, or Center of Disease Control, or etc) of your country, and follow their advice. They are professionals, and they know the best ways to deal with this.

As for us: We are professionals too, we know the best ways to buy PC parts! And this update brings changes to our main chart, mostly in the CPU column.
