    They already increased in price after the initial launch.

    Glad I got my 3070 for $900... still over priced for 70 class card though.

    Expect more increases once they're in stock. The only way is up from here.

    Well, I just looked at the PLE rtx 3070 stock now they are all gone. I still do not understand why a 3060 is priced like a 3060ti considering AUD is quite strong atm... :sick:

    Distributors regret missing the initial meal ticket so they're making up for it now :)

    For the cost of one asus tuf 3060 you could have an entire PS5 (disc edition) and a monitor to play it on... it's fucked up.

    True, but no one saw it coming. I thought it is just a 2060 Super how expensive could it be,now I regret selling my spare 2070S :upset:

    Ok, I only got time now to check 3060/3060 Ti prices, are they for real, some are like $100 less than a 3070, talk about profiteering.
    Makes me feel a little less regret for the 3090 I got because I couldn't get a 3080.

    Still no BAR support for the 3090, but Nvidia said late march, so however long it takes EVGA to release a BIOS for it after that.

    With 3060's going for around a grand... all of a sudden my $1500 3080 actually looks pretty decent.

    It was the smartest investment I’ve made in a long time.

    Surely people can't be that stupid to pay $1000 for a Asus 3060..... And I know ROG likes to charge a premium but........

    Yes, should be.
    $579 direct from Evga - https://au.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=12G-P5-3657-KR
    $749 from PLE - https://www.ple.com.au/Products/645159/EVGA-GeForce-RTX-3060-XC-12G-GDDR6

    Not that there's stock at either.

    PLE still has the EVGA 3060 TI listed cheaper than the 3060 at $729 and you can order, who knows when or if you'd get it. - https://www.ple.com.au/Products/644136/eVGA-GeForce-RTX-3060-Ti-XC-8GB-GDDR6

    Isn't it interesting....

    Sorry we can't supply your 3080's because we can't make enough chips.

    Alright guys here are your new fully stocked 3060 and 3060ti's. Don't worry we have plenty of them.

    I've always said nvidia are artificially inflating prices by holding back their stock. They know they released these cards to cheap. Doing this they can make more money.

    They're selling out really quickly, I can't find a 3060 ti in stock anywhere, more than 1/2 of the 3060's are out of stock.
    Don't get me wrong, Nvidia aren't innocent in all of this, neither is AMD.

    What is wrong with this whole shit show is that the 3060 ti is the same price as some of the 3070's.
    Why, profiteering by the retailers.

    Nice conspiracy theory, but that's not how it works. Big retailer players like PLE and whatnot are often chosen as launch partners for new release. They have SOME stock, but if you think they sitting on a mountain of stock and slowly dripping it out and hoping for the price to rise then your sadly mistaken.

    Yes, because all the economic factors that's been reported in various news media and media channels is all fake news to help prop up nVidia's bottom line?

    It is boosting to 1980mhz stable though. (is that normal?)
