    Scalping Locust Swarm Takes Out Ryzen 5000 Inventory, Same Fate Awaits Radeon RX 6000

    Well, the Turing cards were and in many places practically still are selling for MSRP or even above, after more than 2 years on the market, and it was a lackluster generation. I think the cryptoboom in late 2017 broke something in the market if PC gear. Now they all search the way back to...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080/3090 Founders Edition Sales Limited to BestBuy in the US

    NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang: "The 3080 and 3090 have a demand issue, not a supply issue." Case closed, everything explained. The EU shouldn't demand more than a couple of dozens 3080 in three weeks.

    GIGABYTE Announces AORUS Gaming GeForce RTX 30-Series Graphics Cards

    I have a feeling that we will not see rock bottom price tag of 3080 TUF cards. Not in a month, not during holidays, not even next year. I am convinced that advertised prices were intentionally that low, but we will never actually see them - but it won't be Nvidia or AIB fault, it's the free...

    MSI Subsidiary Starlit Partner Sold RTX 30-Series Cards Over MSRP; Company Investigates

    That's the secret ingredient in Huang's "The 3080 and 3090 have a demand issue, not a supply issue" - at + 600 $ the supply should meet the demand easier. :-D

    NVIDIA CEO Comments on RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 Supply Shortages

    I'm sure Nvidia gets their share of the price increase. Remember cryptocrazyness in late 2017 and talks how the Nvidia was actually the victim and would not benefit from the price increases done by partners and stores?

    NVIDIA CEO Comments on RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 Supply Shortages

    "The 3080 and 3090 have a demand issue, not a supply issue." How many cards were delivered to EU stores? Most of them, including the biggest ones (Mindfactory) haven't even added them to their pages, because in three weeks since the sales start they haven't received even a single card. How is...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Launch Postponed to October 29th

    Do the reviewers warn us that their results are atypical since their cards boost 10 - 15% above "guaranteed boost clock" and that users might experience more than 10% lower performance? No?

    AMD Ryzen 9 5900X CPU-Z Bench Score Leaks, 27% Higher 1T Performance Over 3700X

    That's an enormous difference just for the cache size.

    AMD Ryzen 9 5900X CPU-Z Bench Score Leaks, 27% Higher 1T Performance Over 3700X

    Zen2 had uplift in single and in multicore compared to Zen1 or Zen+. 2700X to 3700X had 12% increase in single core CPU-Z score (457 to 509), but 13% increase in multicore (4839 to 5465). It's strange that 3900X to 5900X wouldn't follow the same pattern, especially with the TDP and frequency...

    AMD Ryzen 9 5900X CPU-Z Bench Score Leaks, 27% Higher 1T Performance Over 3700X

    WCCFTech compares it to 3900X too: "As for performance, the chip scored 652.8 points in the single-core test which is 27% faster than the AMD Ryzen 7 3700X and up to 25% faster than the Ryzen 9 3900X. Coming to the multi-threaded performance test, the alleged AMD Ryzen 9 5900X CPU scored a...

    NVIDIA: RTX 3090 Performance 10-15% Higher Than RTX 3080 in 4K

    I'm sure most of the people who REALLY want something, and don't live in a 3rd world country or in poverty, can scrape 1500$. Once you see prices in other expensive hobbies, PC gaming isn't really that unreachable.

    NVIDIA: RTX 3090 Performance 10-15% Higher Than RTX 3080 in 4K

    So 20GB=gamers, 24GB=nongamers?

    NVIDIA: RTX 3090 Performance 10-15% Higher Than RTX 3080 in 4K

    Yeah, it doesn't matter, 3090 will be unobtanium, and not only at launch. It's a product designed to secure the top space in benchmarks, price and practicallity are irrelevant.
