You haven't already paid for it I assume? Not sure they're taking cancellations otherwise
hopefully my contact comes through and i can source an FE 3080 and FE 3090 in November, will be stoked!
These blocks are TINY!
in stock online and Dandenong
in stock Slacks Creek
first dande one is a 2080 Ti
Slacks creek it outta stock!
lol whoops i thought i had the filter set to 3080 :O
This one in stock also, steep price though! Says there's two.
ah my bad! thought I had it filtered but was only on price lol
pretty funny to see they aren't gouging out the wazoo. Kinda feel sorry for that bloke who paid 2099 for a gaming x trio from them. But not really.
going to be an interesting summer fellas
All good! I did the same lol
This really is AMDs race to lose, if they can get stock on shelves at a competative performance level, they can clean up.
it’s also China’s golden week, I think things slow down til the 7th of October
woefully bad planning on team greens part...... they should have factored all that in before release, AMD will be laughing all the way to the bank if they can pull a decent 3080 similar specc'ed card but actually have stock
Your assuming leather jacket didn't factor all this in before hand... AMD have said multiple times they'll have stock of Navi and considering how they've been caught out before with low stock, well Lisa isn't stupid, if she can get the stock she probably will and wont play fast and loose like leather jacket. Remember Nvidia have so many fan boys that will happily buy an overpriced card (look at this thread) and hype the living shit out of it even if there are clearly serious problems with them.
Id ditch team green if it wasn’t for gsynch. Can gsynch be hacked on an amd card?
Gsynch is fucking amazing
Seems to be the odd trickle of stock coming through, few cards popping up occasionally at some places, even at MSY, but snapped up super quick.
I’ve never understood the need to support AMD as some sort of underdog fighting for consumers bla bla bla... AMD are just like every other company, they love revenue and want more.
If AMD had the market leading product, they would charge more than NVIDIA just like they have in the past. Even when they do offer more value for money, they screw you instead by using you as a beta tester etc...
It's really simple - competition lowers prices for consumers. So AMD being competitive lowers nVidia's prices.
Nobody is pretending AMD is on the side of the consumer or some sort of charitable organisation. It's simply an acknowledgement that AMD being competitive is better for consumers.
I was thinking about the Nvidia 3080 due to reletaively good price, if I could find it in stock that is, but wow, talk about the most boring dull, unimaginative, ugly design ever. I doubt I could purchase just on the looks alone.
