One way out of the loop is to make the lower tier GPU`s on older, more mature node. It will hurt possible performance but can lead to lower costs.
Only the x8xx/x9xx need the very edge as it after absolute performance with value being secondary, if any.
x6xx/x5xx and the equivalent AMD counterpart can do just fine with 7/6nm and get the improvement from the arch uplift, new features (DLSS3) and more refined node. The top tier can pay for the port for the 'older' node.

I don`t really know if it`s a practical solution but as a mid-range shopper I wouldn't mind, as long as the price/pref is there.

Not really practical as there's a lot of work involved with porting a design to a different node. AMD touched on that in a couple of interviews after the 7900-series launch event.
I'm pretty sure GN's Sam Naffziger interview covers it, but don't have time to rewatch it and check.

Clearly a PERFECT opportunity for AMD to pull the rug from under Nvidia's feet an crush them and steal tons of market share with their $650 RX 7900 XTX and $575 Radeon RX 7900 XT.
I really don't see that happening anytime soon. If anything, Nvidia would just get pushed more into the workstation/rendering market since a lot of people still depend on Iray, which is basically "Nvidia-only" and cannot be used on AMD graphics cards. However, for PC gaming, that could be a different story. Nevertheless, do keep in mind that prices are going up on "everything", so PC gaming could be taking a hit as well, so both AMD & Nvidia could be affected.

'This is fine', you say. It's clearly not. Its like all things in life; a world of haves and have nots, is a world in perpetual conflict. That's what you see here; when the gap between these two groups becomes 'unfair', is when things spiral out of control.
Fine is a relative term. Tech has always been the haves and have nots and the economic system modern society was built on running as poorly as it always does.

I fully see the economy collapsing as it is within a few decades, especially the US, unless something drastic happens. The cost of living keeps growing relative to common wage and the mindset of the people just gets greedier. The concept of "economic growth" is a horrible mindset to have and the US is built on it. Everything is running on fumes at this point and it's been getting worse per generation.

It seems to get this way because the average person is not bright enough to see it or do anything about it. Everyone focused on their own little bubble of life, even when that bubble will collapse with the rest.

So yes, this is fine.

Amusingly that's exactly what the 6900XT currently sells for, new.

The people already decided, Nvidia are Dick's.
We don't need others apologies on they're behalf.

We need GPU in better price points.

there is no import charges inside the EU, vat changes just by the difference, and the warranty is exactly the same, 2 years and can be claimed anywhere inside the EU
But there is when your outside it, or anywhere else in the world fella... :-|

I will not pay the increased prices for the 4xxx cards. These prices are crazy for GPU's.
You just paid increased price ($585) for a RTX 3070 that launched at $500 2 years ago. Meanwhile, the RX 6800 XT is at $550, giving +26% more raster performance at 1440p and even slightly more RAYTRACING performance at 1440p (at least according to TPU charts).

How do you get that number? Just curious.
There will be AMD and Nvidia fanboys in any poll, for sure - but 1511 is oddly specific.

no one cares about the "polls". there is no way to tell how many people responding to it would actually buy one even if the price was $700.

the only polls nvidia cares about is how many cards they sell. right now they are selling every 4090 they can make, and people have been paying as much as $4000 (before sales tax/VAT!!) on the after market for the 4090. and while the 4080 isn't completely sold out everywhere, it's still selling a lot more inventory than a $1200-$1500 GPU should sell.

if you want nvidia and AMD to drop prices, stop buying these cards. i've seen some people buy 4080s and 4090s for 1080p monitors. some of you need to get your heads examined.

700-800 range to be the ideal MSRP? Would that be in the "we can just print more Euros for inflation" or the verneralble Sterling, because it sounds like to me that your doing an avert for the money buggering B's. No the max price should be 50% of the manufactering price, around 400 US dollars At the moment, executive privelage makes up 80% of current retail prices and that includes quarterly bonuses, bragging rights and other swag
