    No way.

    The 1080 came out in May 27, 2016.

    Based on the general technology guide of things becoming cheaper to make over time, they could easily be selling 1080 like performance for $500ish AUD at least, likely lower.

    Nvidia stopped making the 1080 for a reason, its more profitable to slap RTX on them and up the price a lot.


    Nvidia have nothing to gain from reducing prices any further.

    1. Anyone with nvidia hardware likely have a 1060/70/80, and there is little reason to get an AMD RX5000 series this late in the nvidia product cycle, especially given the long list of benefits they currently have and the fact that they would be paying a lot of money for similar performance.

    2. Anyone with AMD who was going to swap over would have already done so during the 1000 series.

    Whats left are new computer builds for a very short time while AMD hold the value : performance crown.


    If you look at the entire technology product space (outside GPU's) its completely normal to lose the crownt temporarily for various reasons. This means very little to profitability, otherwise you would see Apple selling cheap iPhones every time Samsung release a new phone.

    They better release big Navi before Christmas. I'm sick of them having the perfect product to encourage competition... A year too late...

    inb4 5900xtx red edition is faster than a 2080ti but even MORE expensive.
    GPU prices need a swift kick up the arse

    I think I remember being told amd cards perform better with less pcie lanes available. Would the rx 5700 xt work well in an egpu setup?

    Nvidia colludes with game devs so their cards are optimized for many games & benchmarks. This has been known in the PC game industry for yrs already.

    Plenty of vids on YT discussing this tech industry corruption. Here's a random one from 5 yrs ago >

    Is that still going on today? :Paranoid: This is obviously detrimental to consumers.

    Thing that is interesting to me is the reference models aren't all priced the same in Aus, which implies suppliers are jacking up the price on the more trusted brands... maybe a hint of thing to come with custom card pricing

    I remember back in the day at least the more expensive 6950's would have extra warranty, but with this launch they're all doing 3 years even :tired:

    to be honest the $600 i paid for this 5700xt is a decent price. considering it is competing with a $800 - $900 (HERE IN AUS)
    we have hit a bit of a wall when it comes to performance on both sides of the fence.
