NVIDIA GeForce RTX Series Prices Up To 71% Higher Than Previous Gen

NVIDIA revealed the SEP prices of its GeForce RTX 20-series, and it's a bloodbath in the absence of competition from AMD. The SEP price is the lowest price you'll be able to find a custom-design card at. NVIDIA is pricing its reference design cards, dubbed "Founders Edition," at a premium of 10-15 percent. These cards don't just have a better (looking) cooler, but also slightly higher clock speeds.

The GeForce RTX 2070 is where the lineup begins, for now. This card has an SEP pricing of USD $499. Its Founders Edition variant is priced at $599, or a staggering 20% premium. You'll recall that the previous-generation GTX 1070 launched at $379, with its Founders Edition at $449. The GeForce RTX 2080, which is the posterboy of this series, starts at $699, with its Founders Edition card at $799. The GTX 1080 launched at $599, with $699 for the Founders Edition. Leading the pack is the RTX 2080 Ti, launched at $999, with its Founders Edition variant at $1,199. The GTX 1080 Ti launched at $699, for the Founders Edition no less.

Here in Finland the prices are very interesting.

RTX 2070 659eur
RTX 2080 869eur
RTX 2080 Ti 1299eur

The prices are nothing but a joke. I remember when I thought that people paying over 500eur from a graphics card was something unbelievable.

he said from the infiltrator test the 1080ti could do like 3x fps and the 2080ti around 78 which i believe double though, so best case scenario if this is double the per 1080ti ( 650$ and sli set up should be 1300-1400$) i would glady to pay up to 1500$ for the 2080ti . on theory the nvlink would double the vram so kinda sweet, i'm placing my bet here with a distributor to get my hand on a pair of 2080ti hopefully i would not turn out to be awful and really looking forward to overclocking these guys.

Just ordered a MSI DUKE aftermarket and paid 1.174 EURO for it! :0 That is about 100 euros more than the 1080Ti at launch. :0

Buyer's remorse in 3.2.1....

Pre ordering without any knowledge of performance. I'm amazed by some people. And not in a good way

I think its quite reasonable considering the ray tracing shit and the performance improvement. Obviouly its gonna be overpriced but shame on amd that there is no competition. Keep in mind that im amd fanboy but it is what it is.

And as many other have said they are pre-order prices, even if i could i wouldnt buy it for that price.

NVIDIA pulling the MSRP vs FE pricing again :shadedshu:, and changing the price scheme, now the x70 is the x80, the x80 is the x80 Ti, and the x80 Ti is the Titan. If I find a 2070 for the MSRP I might buy one, though $500 is still insane for a single piece of hardware intended only for gaming, but never going to pay more.

Alright! I'm picking up a RTX 2080Ti....

That is if I didn't have a mortgage....
and kids....
and the need to eat for a month....

Other than those roadblocks, yeah, who am I kidding? I had a helluva time scraping together the funds for my 980Ti cards 3+ years back.

Thankfully I'm not a graphic whore. I'm rather content on my med/high settings for my 5760x1080 setup. If a game doesn't support that wide resolution well, I get by maxing out the game on 1920x1080. Aside from my cards taking a dump on me, they should hold me just fine for a couple more years.

Though, it is a bit surprising to see the 980Ti cards going from MSRP of $649, then the 1080Ti $699 to the 2080Ti at $999 - holy hell! The price jump is crazy.

Yeah exactly almost 50 % price hike , are they crazy ? So basically after 3 years , if rtx 2080 ti would be 40 % faster than gtx 1080 ti , then the real price per frame would be even more expensive after 3 years ? Are they insane ?

Wow so many ingnorant people still keep posting pre order prices here. Get trough your thick skulls. These are PRE ORDER prices you see on regional Nvidia websites.
These are the real prices:

2080Ti: 999$/1050€
2080: 699$/750€
2070: 499$/550€

Newegg has added the RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti, the 2080 is ranging from $790 - $870, and the 2080 Ti is $1170 - $1240.

Edit:

Amazon is 2080 $750 - $840, 2080 Ti $1170 - $1210.

So you think that 999 $ for rtx 2080 ti , almost 50 % more than gtx 1080 ti at launch if fair price ? Even if rtx 2080 ti would be 50 % faster , then it would mean that price per frame is the same after almost 3 years , so in the next 3 years we will pay 1500 $ for the flagship ? How can i say its fair , for me it's all seems like being too greedy . Not to mention the same amount of memory , higher tdp , outdated 12 nm proccess when 7 nm will be rolling out soon ?

50% higer vs 1080Ti? Yeah - NO. 1080Ti MSRP was 699$. 999$ makes it 30% more expensive. Yet it ran twice as fast in UE4 4K demo on stage vs 1080Ti. 78fps vs 35fps. That is twice as fast. Essentially 1080Ti SLI performance on a single card.

Same amount but faster memory. Cutting edge 12nm process. There may be only some ultra expensive enterprise cards launching on 7nm this year. Currently only AMD has announced their 7nm Vega part for HPC later this year. 7nm is not ready for mass production.

To be exact 43 % more expensive , so if it will be similar in performance gain. Then after such long wait , we would pay the same amout of money per frame ? You call it progrress ? I would describe it as being greedy .
