Various Custom RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 Graphics Cards Priced in Germany

The $1,499 "starting price" of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 is beginning to look a lot less suggestive, as pricing of custom-design RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 graphics cards surfaced on German e-tailer Caseking.de. Prices of some of the higher trim custom RTX 3090 cards can be as high as 1,719€, including taxes, which converts to a little over $2,024 (USD, without taxes), making pre-announcement speculation of custom RTX 3090 being effectively "$2,000 cards" a lot more credible.

That said, the cheapest custom RTX 3090 we could spot in this selection goes for about 1,576€ including taxes ($1,855). Much like its MSRP, the RTX 3090 is on average 50% pricier than the RTX 2080 Ti. Prices of custom-design RTX 3080, on the other hand, are closer to what custom-design RTX 2080 went for at launch. The cheapest custom-design RTX 3080 can be had for around 756€ including taxes ($890), and the pricier ones going for 804€ including taxes ($950). It's important to note here, that prices on US retailers are quoted without taxes, whereas the EU enforces prices to be quoted inclusive of taxes.

Not sure if it's a good idea to convert into USD without first subtracting the 16% tax.

Just went on their site, even without the 19% VAT, the 3090s are upwards of $1700

This is just where it should be. $2k for a card that can do some heavy lifting vs. Quaddro cards and pump out 4K/8K gaming. If you can afford the monitors, then you can afford the card.

Meanwhile, everyone else that really matters spends $500-800 on a good IPS 1440p monitor that can benefit from the 3070 after we ditch our 1080ti's. The 3080 is there to make everyone spend more, or to cater to the 4K 120fps group on $1k+ monitors that dont exist yet.

I'm prob wrong

That's bad news for countries that are forced to pay twice the U.S. price.

You are insane. This card is for gaming not workstation's workloads. The companies rise their prices feeding you marketing crap and you take it. It would seem like you are still in 2000's. Shouldn't the technology become cheaper while moving forward? More affordable and better than previous gen? The 980Ti was sold for $650 on its release date. Is the 3090 3 times faster? Probably yes and the price is 3 times the price of 980Ti. Do you see where I'm going with this?

3090 is not new 980ti/1080ti equivalent and was never supposed to be. It’s not a surprising price for titan-like card for the specs it offers. you are insane to think you should be sold 3090 for bargain prices for whatever reason. 3060 will cover the needs of budget gamers just like predecessors.

It's still not a good moment to buy, the prices haven't settled yet after the lockdown shortages.
The 5700XT costs 30% more than what I paid for just at the beginning of the lockdown.
I think January/February of next year would be a smarter time to upgrade.

I remember 3-4 years back paying 1k for a top gaming card was a joke. Now 2k is fine because it is faster than the older gen? It must be faster becase it is the advancement. So faster new gen means more expensive and you are OK with that? That only means you've been brainwashed and you need to get it straight. Are you telling me that within 10 years time (and lets say 3 more gens of NV graphics) we will have to pay 4k for a top GAMING card and 2k for a mid range card and that's the way it is? 3090 is not a replacement for anything. It is a new graphics from a company but it doesn't mean it has to cost 2 times more than a previous gen because it is 2x faster for example.

Not only that, if you discard RTX Titan and Titan V, this 3090 is even more expensive than Titans usually are. Never have I seen more than double the price for 20% more performance, this is a record.

what kind of logic is that? high price-tag is the result of monopoly and no competitor on the market.
so you are saying that current ryzen cpu should cost as much as intel cpu on pre-ryzen era because it can do some heavy lifting as Xeon and Core X did?

One thing people have failed to realize about the 3090, is that it is a TITAN for which you get to have custom designs. With the previous titans, you didnt get that.
This being said, 3090 is still not the full chip, as its missing some shaders.
This leaves room for 3090 Ti, and with a bit more mature process, full chip, a bit better clock, and a custom design to the max, (iGame Kudan like) that will be the card to get.
And maybe, maybe 48GB memory.

Asus overpricing again, who would have thought?
Otherwise, it doesn't look so bad.

You are scrambling dude. The GPUs are not out and you have already foreseen what NV will release? Ti version's may not be there even and I'm not sure if the 3090 is the full fledged chip or not.
So you are saying that 3090 is a Titan top NV card and yet you expect to have 3090 TI which will be higher tier? Listen to yourself dude, You are lost in this NV crap and you don't even think about what you are writing.

Well the guy above says 3090 is a Titan. I do think, this 3090 is ridiculous in price for something that is designed for gaming.

3080 is 700 MSRP
980ti was 650, while there was actual competition from a Fury X.
This was five years ago. So over half a decade, you get what, some 130% more FPS for your dollar.
Then came 1080ti. Again 700 MSRP. That's one gen later, and you're getting 60-70% more FPS for your dollar compared to 980ti.
Despite a total lack of competition.

You can point me to an example on CPU where such jumps happen every generation. The last decade we had only two of those moments: Sandy Bridge, and Zen. First on IPC, then on core count. And they all did include a price hike, too. AMD just matched Intel's stack which was overpriced for years - with virtually no real perf gains.

I'm not seeing the price hike here honestly.
Yes there is a 3090 at an astronomical price tag... so what? The rest of the stack is going to land in a very decent region of pricing, especially for its performance compared to last gen.

Note that Nvidia also sold a Titan X during those 980ti days that was priced at 1K.

I'm referring to the 3090 not any other and stating that the price is ridiculous, for still a gaming card. That's just my opinion on that dispute.
With the performance/price landing in an good region I'd still wait till these come out.

That falls flat when you start comparing them to things that aren't the equivalent of the same 3090, like a 980ti. Its a different segment so its priced differently. Your comparisons are way off the mark. The correct comparison there is the Titan X at 999. Which still makes it a price hike, there is no dispute on that one :D

But let's be honest. The Titan equivalent has always been a 'fools and money parting'-product. Cue the 2080ti, which has lost 60-75% of its value overnight. I really don't mind those products, its an early adopters tax that I'm never going to pay, to each their own, right?

Also... you weren't just talking about the 3090. You were making a point, saying 'where you are going with this'... its pretty clear where you went and it doesn't make sense as I showed you with the above examples. Call a spade a spade, please.

Stop that "gaming" nonsense please.
You can use your freakin' GPU how you want. The 3090 is the definition of jack of all trades and master of almost all, it should do pretty much every task you throw at it and do it faster; Gaming, 4K/8K Video editing, Rendering and many other professional tasks.
There's a lot of value in that card, maybe you should look at it a bit differently?

Yes, the 3090 is what used to be the Titan, so called "halo" segment, hence the price. And yes, 3090 isnt full chip, ive read that, surprise surpsie here on tech power up.
And yes, there will be a full chip, probably named 3090ti with higher specs.

I think you have some reading to do. You can do whatever you want with your card. You can use it as a frisbee with your dog or with your children to play catch but the tiers have been established and this card has been introduced as a gaming card. You can use it for workstation workloads as well. You can get quaddro card and play games on it as well. so there.

So it is not a Titan if it is not a full chip. Where did you get, this is the "halo" segment? Because if it is not the full chip, it means there is another one coming in which probably, in my opinion, will be Titan so and that will be "the halo" product not the 3090.
I'm not gonna get offended by you no matter what you write and/or post here about me my very abusive friend. Don't flatter yourself to much :)

i guess well have to wait and see. what id like to have would be for asus to make a return of their MARS series of GPU, now those were something special. MARS and ARES, now we dont get cards like those these days. Only iGame Kudan are the top of the line these days, overengineered over specced over everything ... Get yours for 5k euros.

my LG Oled 65" Gsync HDMI 2.1 is ready to welcome the 4k@48-120hz that 3080 will deliver for that shiny Cyberpunk RTX colors maxed out with Oled color gamut... well your right not everybody is ready..but some are. :clap:

No it hasn't been introduced as a gaming card, rather a Pro/Gaming card just like a Titan.

They officially compared it with the last gen Titan. Just accept you were wrong and move on.
