hahah you'll be back to team green in no time.
3060tis are the same kind of price, dropping like a stone at the moment. Last week I was thinking about upgrading and they were around $800, there was one on Amazon for $700 earlier today though (sold out now). Seeing numbers from what RSR can do though is impressive, AMD are definitely catching up on the AI upscaling front.
https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/melbourne-cbd/components/rig-410mhs/1295397453 - noticed this on gumtree earlier, 3x3080 (two are Gundam!), 2x3070, 1600W PSU, 5600x system for $6k. That would have been an easy $10k a few months ago.
I'm tempted to offer $5k. $1200 per 3080, $800 per 3070, $800 for the other bits, sounds fairly reasonable
lol i dont doubt it, had 2 days benchmarking it, was suprisingly fast in vr and only cost 1k
Yeah, there was a 3060 that was going for $350 on gumtree.
68xt in the mail all i can say is 7900xt time lel
well i'll be damned.
It happened alot sooner then i thought possible, mwave have the Gigabyte Radeon RX 6800 GAMING OC 16GB for $899
dare i dream the 6800XT will be following along shortly?
sounds like the 40 series rumours are correct, gotta clear this inventory i'd say.
I paid $1400 for my 6800 about a year ago
Wow that's a cracker price
Never been a better time to be a gamer.
Don't say that too loud, you'll be crucified by some.
Personally I agree completely
Older games are piss easy to run and still look fantastic, high frame rate monitors are readily available, games are basically given away free from Epic games (Borderlands 3 today wtf) and the power you get out of even $200-$400 GPUs is basically enough to run anything at 1080p, including CP2077, That's money you can earn at a chicken shop.
AM4 gear can also be had for a total of under $200 for RAM/CPU/Mobo if you look closely enough.
Oh absolutely if we are talking about pure technology only. I absolutely love my current setup of the 3080 + LG 48" oled. In terms of gaming it's crazy good. Also love it for other general office productivity. The tech is awesome these days, but you gotta pay a bit for it.
Yeah but that tech you're playing with is top end. I have pretty much the same.
The gaming experience you can get off a 1060 6gb on any random 75-144hz screen is still amazing!
Given gpu/cpu technology constantly improves, by that logic every moment in time is the best time to be a gamer , and always has been.
In terms of what you can get for your money , its absolutely not .. better than last year , but still well off the mark.
Gurrent generation gpu's are only just getting back to their rrps from 18 mths ago
Absolutely, with the bumps at the top end the middle and bottom get bumped up also.
Yeah but current gen GPUs aren't used by most of the population.
Agreed that a few years ago when RX470s were under $100.00 was pretty damn good for gamers.
Here's hoping. I went and looked at some benchmarks for SAM and RSR combined and it seems to be pretty good (most reviewers seem to leave SAMs off, despite it giving a 5%ish boost).
I'm expecting a 4070 to be something like a $1500 card at launch, so I'm thinking an upgrade now might make sense, even with new cards right around the corner.
I bought my 1060 6GB off these forums for $180 back in Jan 2020. Still a perfectly fine 1080p card, was a perfect upgrade for a mate of mine. Considering all the money I spent upgrading, I kinda wish I kept it and just waiting out the insanity of the past couple of years

Sure, but for many years you can sit on basically the same tech with very little movement in enjoyment factor as it just seems to be the same old stuff rebadged.
Dont ever buy a brand new car....
