As consumers we should not being paying significatly more for a gfx card than a console. For example the MSRP for the 3080, while higher than I have paid in the past for a GPU (£300-400) was atleast reasonable and would eventually come down as time passed (pandemics aside). I have thought that nViida had seen the error of thier ways after the B$ pricing that was the 2080Ti. But here we are again with the 4080/4090.

And on that subject look how little you can pick up a 2080Ti for now, its 70% below its original MSRP. But we have the 3070 thats a better card for the same money. But back to the 300-400 bracket, we have the RX 6650 (new), for nearly half the price of the 3070 yet match or beat it in performance. But if you have 3070 money, just get a RX 6800 (matching or beating the 3080) rendering the 3070 utterly and completely irrelevent.

Long story short, Both AMD and nVidia dont care about you as the consumer, so you should not care about them. They are NOT your friend, that are here just to make emoney. So bide your time and wait, or do what I did and atleast make sure you keep the upgrade costs reasonable by trading/selling your old stuff as you upgrade.

Pandemic was just icing in on the mining cake, le inflazione a la pricing was comme illusion. They didn't lack cards or anything really as there were news here of Nvidia keeping stock somewhere who knows.

I just gave in and bought an Asus tuff 3070 v2 for $585. Mainly due to the fact my youngest daughter needed a new gpu. I gave her my old 2070 which worked great for 1440p @144hz gaming on it. I was trying to hold out for the 4070 but this card dropped below 600 bucks and I jumped on it. I will not pay the increased prices for the 4xxx cards. These prices are crazy for GPU's. The 4080 should be back to $699 due to ethereum becoming POS.

She probably doesn't, whole lot of hobbies outside of the realms of glaring in front of a display. Just pointing out. :)

I voted $900 mainly due to inflation correction, i'd say between 800 and 900 is fair.

The more interesting survey would be "how many % of your monthly income are you willing to spend on a graphics card"...

600 Dollars must be the max price for a high end gpu,, or just buy a ps5/xbox one and a pc with just igpu for multimedia or work, thats all, and they can put their expensive cards in their asses, all that shit is because of 4k 60fps/ rt bullshit, if not, a 3060ti do the job with 1080p/60fps+ max graphics, for 350/400 dollars, fucking thiefs.

with inflation it should be 267$

with inflation it should be 743$

It certainly has nothing to do with Moore's Law or inflation. Stop using inflation as an excuse

Taiwan inflation is 2.7% . Voted 800 is max for this gpu

That's dollars, it's not counting from Taiwan's currency. You have to do it their way if you're counting in on inflation. In that case, the card would likely be closer to 500 than it is to 800. Unless I'm misunderstanding something.

Hi,
Yep I did 900.us because of sells tax/ and possible shipping costs as well.

They need a new results diagram the ball is terribly rotated and sloppy looking with all the crossing lines on the top :laugh:

Does it matter though? When you're cooking GPUs in a kitchen with a leather jacket you are nothing but capitalism...

Yeah, I probably wanted the upgrade more than her.. lol Between Minecraft and roblox her old R9 270 was fast enough. lol It paired well with her (my old) Ryzen 5 2600. She needed that upgrade from her i7 4770k. But because "she" needed the upgrade I had to settle for a i7 12700k.. Do you see the sacrifices that I have to do for my family.. It's a tough life but it's what us dads do.. HAHA Plus, it's easier to tell the wife the kids need an upgrade for their pc over I need this. lol This Knowledge is crucial for young dads! I'm just here to spread it. ;)

700~800$ real price WITH TAX or any other cost, would be an acceptable price.
Now it costs over a 3090ti, more than 100% increase over the 3080, some models are only 150$ less than a 4090.

We'll see how stubborn nVIDIA will insist on it's current pricing when 7900XTX/XT launches. If AMD is at least somewhat competitive I doubt the price will not be lowered - unless nVIDIA and their shareholders are fine with cards sitting on shelves.

Lucky you, 17.9% in Poland.

Combine that with 23% tax and greedy retailers and you have one of the most expensive GPU's in EU.

Benchmark Scores I once clocked a Celeron-300A to 564MHz on an Abit BE6 and it scored over 9000.
I mean it's not rocket science, is it.

It's significantly slower than the $999 AMD 7900XTX according to AMD's own numbers, and it's only ~40% faster than the 3080 which you can easily pick up on ebay for ~$500. They go from $450-600 depending on model, but realistically there are A TON of them being dumped on the used market right now.

I have a feeling the 7900XT will be poor value, relative to the XTX but that AMD are targeting the 4080 specifically. I'd say it's a much better value at $300 less for potentially similar performance, but there's nothing "value" about a $900 GPU.

Fun fact - If you were to apply "GPU's should cost +60% more because they are +60% faster than last gen" consistently from nVidia's early RIVA TNT2's through to today, then today's average GPU would cost $3m. Likewise, RAM also used to cost £100/MB at once point. Using same "nVidia pricing logic", 2x 16GB sticks of DDR4 'should' cost £3.2m. We should also be thankful that nVidia doesn't make storage devices or this chart would be a flat horizontal line that never dipped below $1m per GB, at which point modern 1TB SSD's would cost $1bn each...

Back in the real world, the whole point of progress is "tech gets better at same price", not "price ends up completely divorced from reality because 'tech improved as expected'".

You guys are in the EU just buy it in any other country. Some even do free shipping (not sure in those eastern parts but should be the same). Not that you can find much cheaper for what i see

Us guys in EU still have to deal with stores that do not ship to other EU countries.

I’m strongly considering either a 7900xt or 7900xtx once the reviews come out. I need something better than my rx6600 now that I have a 4k monitor. I agree purely based on specs and the numbers we have so far the XT at $899 is a bad deal compared to the XTX for $999. However, given that I’m pairing it with an i5-11th gen, I wonder if I’m better off with the XT as I’ll probably be wasting an XTX?
