    Unless they've done something to it, it would be covered by warranty?

    the short answer is no.

    $1200 is a huge risk

    At that price it should come with a handjob not just gloves for one.

    Jesus boys, I stepped away from the video card market after I got my 3080. I fully expected everyone to have one by now, but it seems like it's almost worse than Nov last year?

    back in november I half-joked about how the waiting lists would probably last until easter but that ended up being very optimistic.

    That makes we wonder, is anyone still waiting on a PLE order from launch night?

    How long are you going to parrot this line? Let it go man. I used it in the context of people who were able to get their orders in early on, had the patience to wait it out 3-4 months while stock was blipping in and out at higher prices and got their cards. They have clearly won a lottery of sorts with the situation being much worse now and the odds of getting a card at those prices (or under $1,800) in the next 6-12 months being pretty much nil. Not everyone got their card, it sucks for a lot of people, we know.

    It was a dumb statement to begin with. There was an incredible amount of uncertainty in the situation at time, there were even solid predictions orders would not be fulfilled for a significant period of time, well into 2021 and perhaps even beyond that. And that was coming from reputable sources. For the record I also feel for those that still do not have cards, but have previously suggested they would probably be better off sniping a card at a bit higher price, than waiting on the queue of uncertainty while others enjoy their cards.

    There is no winning without a risk v reward scenario. There are also people who weren't and aren't prepared to overpay for these cards given the msrp nvidia announced them with and the spectacular "it's finally safe for pascal users to upgrade" statement. A lot of those same people probably skipped the 2000 series for their lack of value and will sit in long queues at the right price or skip these entirely too.

    It's clear we have different views on this and that's cool, but I don't think we need to keep going back to this conversation because of your snarky 1 liners every time you decide to look into this thread.

    Another thing no one knew, was how prices would sky rocket. If only we had a time machine :p

    I hardly use mine now because of work and family commitments. Looks like a good time to take it to market.

    i was one of those, went from a Gainward 1080 OC, that cost me 1200 back in 16, 1470 for my 3080 is a good valued upgrade imho
