I do like the budget price for existing customers, will probably grab it just to see what my existing kit can do.

If they are giving it free to new customers, that's actually expensive to existing customers IMO. The old customers are the ones that have been funding them up to now.

Maybe if they gave you e.g. 3 years of updates included in your $3 it would be more reasonable.

In a way I'm surprised they never gave it away for the upgrade, people might want to buy an RTX card if that was the case..

You probably don't have a Turing card, so it has to render it in software. Du-uh :D
