decent price thanks to mining, if mining wasn't around it'd be down to $500 by now
just checked the newegg prices. it is INSANE. just aswell im not buying one.....
I wonder if the 2070/2080 Ampere cards will initially be reasonably priced or will retailers instantly sell well above RRP.
If only was a way to gimp the cards mining abilities without hurting gaming perf.
nvidia are milking it. as they have done in the past. seriously scraping the bottom of the barrel with the lowest priced 3g 1060. might even have to go 1050ti at these prices
the recent 200+$ price hike has totally taken the higher end cards out of contention for me.
wouldnt be surprised to see 2000$ grfx cards 2080ti ridiculous.
almost a reasonable 'deal'...
I guess the only way to mitigate mining craze is to casually mining yourself. But it's a farking pain in the ass. Rumour says Ampere releases 12th Apr we'll cross our finger til then. Honestly with RAM price being mad, mining going on, not much competition from Radeon we are in nvidia's hand.
i'm still running a PC from 2013, might get a PS4 pro instead of a new PC if this keeps up
Well yes a console or prebuild is actually better value right now thanks to mining.
im still on my original rig from 2010.
only upgraded the GPU but for Fp64 performance but it turned into a gaming GPU since prices have gone nuts.
I agree, providing you can afford the initial purchase you should easily be able to make back the difference from reality prices in a reasonably short period of time.
I really wouldn't buy anything less than a 1060 6gb, if you can't afford that maybe pick up something older from a gen or two back that aren't efficient enough for miners.
I picked up a couple of 1080's (EVGA 1080 FTW) for $829ea the other day. Next day they were $929ea (same store). I wanted to SLI my 1070 FTW but no f-ing way was I paying $700+ for a 1070. I think I picked it up for $550 AUD new. And I couldn't stretch the budget to 2 1080ti's, a new PSU and a new monitor (to take advantage of TI's). I have the 1080s and 1070 running nicehash while not in use to recoup the "mining tax" I paid. As for ram, I picked up my 32gb of ripjaws V for $275. The prices for that much ram now are fucking horrendous. To the point where when I eventually upgrade to i7 coffee lake illI probs just split the ram I have now. Unreal
ive now got a 1080 and a 1070, will install the 1070 tomorrow, ill too be mining just to recoup the cost. it may work but happy with my 1080 thus far. be interested in the next gen whne it comes through
Looking at the prices of the Acer Predator X34P monitors and the presumed successor X35 that will supposedly do HDR/200 Hz and also the prices of I9-79xx CPU's then if said $2000 2080Ti could possibly do perhaps 200 FPS @ 1440p and also 100 FPS @ 4k on ultra settings I can tell you I'd be putting in my order right now and I suspect a lot of other people would be doing the same thing.
Right now I'm sitting on an X79 4930K which only gets about two thirds the FPS that an 8700K can currently get and my two GTX1070's don't do much with SLI in BF1 so I might as well be using just one video card although I'm currently getting around 100 FPS on my 1080p monitor in BF1 so its OK for the moment. An upgrade to an 8700K+MB+32GB DDR4 would cost $1.5K and same again for whatever X35? monitor will be around at the time and a $2K video card will round out the cost to around $5K even. Usually I upgrade my PC in a piecemeal fashion but if the 2080ti video card can't drive that kind of grand setup then I'm likely not going to upgrade much at all but if it can I probably will upgrade the lot in this big bang fashion and I'm not going to be overly that fussed about the price of the $2000 video card if it can get that kind of job done well.
I bought a 1 month after release 1070 for $540 and picked up a 1080ti 3 weeks ago for $980 both from ebay %20 sales. Just got lucky on timing of purchases also sold the 1070 for $600 I have never sold tech for more than I payed for it good old mining.
1080ti does a great job driving a 90hz monitor never see a fps drop its a lovely thing.
where did you get the 1080ti 3 weeks ago? I have been paying close attention to them and they all seems 1.1k mark.
makes you wonder if all the SLI owners of higher end cards should sell off a card now to try and mitigate some of the losses when the next gen of cards get announced this year
Ebay the seller had 50 listed and they were all gone within 2 hours from New Zealand.
Just wait for the 20% Tech20 code sales on ebay and hawk eye the crap out of all sellers. A mate got a 1080ti for the same price early last year also from Ebay during tech20
I also wouldn't of upgraded the entire system if it werent for that dang 1080ti haha
I don't know what a 2080 is but i'd probably part with $1.5k for a 1180Ti. $2k is a joke I got my 1080Ti for $800 lol.
They usually start increasing the first digit once they get to 10 on the second so they are more likely to have a 2080Ti rather than an 1180Ti because if you think about it the one following after that would be a 1280Ti and the one after that again would be a 1380Ti and series 13 video cards probably won't sell too well as superstitious people won't want to buy them.
I got my GB Aorus GTX1080ti for $916 or something?
Pretty happy with that
EVGA GTX1080ti FTW3, First EVGA GPU i have had and its seems the good's.
Nothing wrong with Gigabyte
