Those prices on pccasegear are insane. How does USD$499 become $1k aud? Bloody rip off
only one brand, and due to evga being cheaper at PLE..
Overpriced everywhere else, if supply is short which nvidia now has a track record of, i dont think it will be as damaging to 2080 Ti prices as you think.
time will tell, but an 11GB 2080Ti for $800-$900 vs a 8GB 3070 for $1100-$1200, still would make little sense to buy a 3070
But since stock is non existant.. those RTX2080ti sellers still have a few more weeks of top resell value
I hesitated and failed..
Had the PLE eVGA $899 to pay... saw it go from STOCK > ETA 02/11 > 10/11 > NO STOCK! haha
My logic of high end RTX2080ti or AMD 16GB sounds way better....
Can't believe they all sold out, some people actually paid $1300 for a 3070. There is no saving some
Nvidia: Get all this for $499 USD
AU sellers : $1k + hahahahahah
but strix omg so much better and worth the gouge...
Thats totally farked... hope most shoppers will give everyeone the stiff finger
not much point buying a 3070 at these prices.. A 6800XT will be cheaper and shit on it.
11/11 ETA at scorptec for some of the EVGA cards..
I've jumped on one.. despite the price being higher than PLE..
Ordering the 3070 at PLE, would probably mean losing my position for the 3080..
This will stop me from considering a secondhand 2080Ti..
annnnnd... they're gone!
I am assuming they went live at 12 so it took only 20 minutes to drain stock for an item that's not *as* hot as it's bigger brother.
Reviewers say the RTX 3070 is awesome value but failed to mention "only in Murca". Some of these prices are ridiculous almost double the MSRP gawd
that’s what you think hey.... watch the 6000 prices do the same thing... 6800XT $1500+ 6900XT $2000+
i woudl expect the 6800XT to be around base 3080 model pricing, since they compete, they aint going to give cheaper prices
if 6900XT is under 2k, then that will be very tempting, but i agree, AMD cards are not going to be cheaper or cheaper like previous gens. especially with gouging here..
Well I guess the Aussie sellers get to make a bit of a Christmas bonus here.
Not on my wallet even though I'm a bit sad to not be getting an upgrade any time soon
Selling these mid range cards for high end prices makes me feel like the Aussie industry has a cartel going. What kind of mark up are they making?
From this rate guess we'll have to wait till mid next year till prices really settle. So glad to have jumped on a RTX 2070 Super to tide me over.
$940~ (or over) doesn't sound right for this card.
especially IF I can find another STRIX 2080ti Sub $950
I'll be looking for an RTX3070 FE $809
Yup, 'Straya tax. Seems to have gotten worse this year than previous ones.
You'd think they'd give us a break considering we're either fighting off poisonous insects or Flooded and\or on fire half the year.
We could go round in circles for hours here, but yes, assuming both products are of exactly equal quality and reliability then a 2080Ti for $800 is better than a 3070 for $1100.
The thing is...
a) A 2080Ti for $800 is used. You can sometimes find good ones from good sellers, but it's a complete crap shoot, especially outside of places like OCAU.
b) On OCAU, you ain't getting a 2080Ti for $800 right now. That may change, but you're definitely paying north of $900, and there is about 2 per week... so good luck.
c) I count SEVEN sub $1000 3070's on PLE's website right now, and they aren't all eVGA.
d) 3070 is new. Smells good. Come with warranty.
e) RT, DLSS 2.0, RTX-IO etc etc. 3000 series does have some additional advantages over 2000 series, it's not just about FPS.
f) Power, heat and noise.... 3070 has 2080Ti dead to rights.
The Gigabyte Vision 3070 looks great
The danger with with buying a AMD 6800/6900 early on, is getting crap AIB implementions.. you probably need to wait for enough reviews to come out first..
by then.. stock may well be depleted / non existent.
Going with a major, eg strix etc, was no guarantee... look the 5700XT strix /TUF / MECH debacle
plenty of bad bads, and only a few really good ones..
The good thing with the NVIDIA cards, generally, there aren't too many crap AIBs around.. pick a major brand, and you will probably be okay...
