Only people I've heard asking this are the GPU and graphics card manufacturers, plus a few high-end game devs. Do you know of any others?For those who have been asking this question for a long time
Me too. It's ta-raa… people are not generally idiots. There are only a small percentage willing to spend more on a graphics card than they've ever spent on a full PC build.I found the answer
Myself as well. My 3080 runs everything I need it too, generally on a mix of high & ultra when those types of graphics settings are available in a game. I don't see the 4060s, 4070s, or even the 4080 as being enough of a technological leap to warrant an upgrade. And the 4090 is just stupidly expensive; I refuse to pay that kind of money for a graphics card. I'll being pushing my 3080 for several more years.Got a 3080. With the way prices are now, I am not going to upgrade my gpu for a very long time.
Will I be able to read it?I should probably make a video about this…

Me too... GPUs are getting expensive, but I wouldn't count this will change in the future. It's quite the opposite. There's no reason to think that in the long term the prices will be more affordable in average. We have inflation not deflation and a potential military conflict in Taiwan. Of course if someone has GeForce RTX 3080, there's almost no reason to do an upgrade now. But when the next generation is released it may be advisable if you want to play in decent graphics quality. But it won't be cheaper for sure...I just did.
Every time I need a new GPU I buy an entire new computer instead because opening them to fit new parts is scary.
not everyone buys brand new PC to just play new games. Some of us like to see what performance difference you get on older games, and always assume it will be better on new PC... and post about it on forums if it doesn't.How serious a problem do you think that could be? Wouldn't the cards being in newer rigs counteract old optimization issues?
To be fair, I have managed to get quite a bit of mileage out of both my machines so far!That seems excessive.
Come to think of it, "time for a new PC" and "time for a new graphics card" have been coinciding for me lately, too.I was using a GTX 970 from 2014 up until 2022, by which point everything in that machine was truly on its last legs and therefore much easier to just replace entirely.
Too expensive. I bought an Xbox Series X to get around it.Why doesn't anyone update their graphics cards? For those who have been asking this question for a long time, rejoice, I found the answer.Even though it looks like spam, please read the video, otherwise keep asking questions
