    Demand for 3000 series mining cards will always be strong as long as mining is profitable.

    This week (from today), there's less "in stock for fast delivery" on the Dell website

    Best they have is a 3070 based machine for $2232 after LOVEKEANU and an alienware with 3060ti and ryzen 5800 (non X) for $2175 after using both LOVEKEANU and DAISY codes.

    Scorptec just listed a Gigabyte 3090 Turbo for $3.2k, I was considering buying it, 5 minutes later they upped the price to $3.8k. This is absurd.

    Mining profitability will probably take a hit when Ether moves to POS. Might see an influx of 2nd hand cards then.

    Not to mention mining is a bit on the nose these days too, in terms of energy consumption, gpu shortages etc.

    He traded a 2080Ti for this, the kidney was cash adjustment to the seller, buyer pays scalpel.

    6800 does 62Mh/s at 99-101W (under-volt with more power tool), not terrible.

    I honestly can't get over the pricing, my 3080 was something like $1700 the same card is now $3000 8 months later.
    @ $1700 it seems so over priced for what it is, sure it draws nice pictures but it certainly makes consoles much more appealing, 3k+ is insane.

    Even my old 1080ti would still fetch an obscene amount of money for where it sits these days.

    Does any seriously see them ever coming back down close to RRP?
