The price has killed it or it is killing it. 699USD MSRP, you must be trippin'.

GTX 1080 Ti performance at GTX 1080 Ti launch prices 2 years down the line. You can get an RTX 2080 at 699 with less power draw and the option to turn on DXR, regardless how much of a checkbox feature it is at the moment.
Maybe with 8GB framebuffer and 549USD pricetag this would be a great sell, in its current state tho... no bueno.

No one believed me when I said Nvidia had just set the price of high end cards for many years to come and that AMD will likely adhere to that as well. Enjoy.

Meh. So thanks to nvidia these are the new prices for gpu line ups:

- mid end 450€/600€
- high end 800€
- enthusiast 1200€

Amd followed this pricing. I am personally out. Bring that PlayStation 5.

Never bought an apple product so I will defo not be paying premium price on pc hardware. I'm done.
I actually have been considering this as well, just retire with my current PC setup or get a budget setup when ryzen 3600x comes out - retire with that, and then all new purchases put on hold until Playstation 5 launches. just do a gamefly subscription - 2 games a month unlimited total for $20 a month, and just retiring from PC gaming, especially the older I get, I prefer couch or lazy boy, and console is just so easy plug and play and relaxing / everything already optimized.

it's cost effective and still will be a ton of fun, and I will waste less time on settings menus lol

everyone knew this except for those who believed RTG was the messiah with a masterplan to bring down nvidia's cards down at half their cost.So literally half of this forum :laugh:

8GB frame buffer is not possible with its current memory configuration.
They need to cut the bus width and ROP count to half to make this an 8GB card which means significant performance decrease.
A radeon VII with 8GB frame buffer would perform like an overclocked Vega 64.

They could use smaller memory stacks but that would not be noticeably cheaper.

It has nothing to do with nvidia.
This is only 7% pricier than Fury X at launch which is totally normal, especially when considering the cost of that 16GB of HBM2 memory.

Can you buy the AMD own reference card from any retailers or only from AMD own webshop?

Not free, but at least affordable.

It is rather ridiculous how prices are so high. Mid range cards selling for $350 USD? Ouch. An entire console costs that much, or $50 more.

There's no margins on this card for AMD or partners. Two stacks of HBM....low yield 7nm... The price is great, but it's not for gamers. I guess they won't bother trying to actually sell a pro card this time.

eh? PS4 regulary goes on sale for $199 for several years now. lol

no but there is no doubt nvidia is gouging its profit margins on purpose due to no competition. so i fail to see your point. there are margins for nvidia not the makers, sure. those are two diff points.

Nvidia isn't selling a comparable card. They're selling gaming cards, which unfortunately for everyone, Vega was never supposed to be.
Those dummies blew their load on wasting die space and tons of time. Prices were gonna go up, regardless, though. It's the nvidia way.

Why are people expecting a "price disruption" from a card that comes with the most expensive version of the most expensive memory currently in the industry is beyond me...

I would still pick this over the RTX 2080 though. Native 4K looks better than the RTX+DLSS image no matter how insistent Nvidia is to the opposite. High resolution textures just win over ray-traced reflections anytime ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

well we don't have to buy it... and lot of us aren't... Newegg and Amazon have had ton of stock... lol they aren't selling out like the old days for months on end. even before crypto new gpu launches would sell out for a few months. not the case here at all. and nvidias stock is showing it. if nvidias stock declines again in 4 months, you will see price reductions ;)

yep, I imagine when the review embargo lifts we will all be a little underwhelmed, especially at 1080p and 1440p. :/
who is the idiot that buy high end gpu to play at 1080p?

RTX 2080Ti is fairly often CPU limited at 1440p. Occasionally so are RTX2080 and GTX1080Ti, especially when going for high frame rates. I am sure the same will be the case with Radeon VII. Cards at this performance level are far less efficient at 1080p. Just look at the performance summary charts in TPU reviews - high end cards get spaced further apart with resolution increases.

who is the idiot that buy high end gpu to play at 1080p?
me. I really enjoy my 240hz 1080p monitor, the smoothness of FPS games and adventure action games is quite fun when you can hit 180+ fps minimum. unfortunately this requires low settings for most games, so it would be nice not to have to do that.

thanks for calling me an idiot though, have fun, cheers

hmmm 60-70 fps faster than any other card at 1080p the 2080 ti review shows... not for all games, but for a few.

Because of nvidia...they made their reference models amazing
nvidia reference cooler is shit on the RTX series as for the PCB , amd is known for having better ref pcb than nvidia

The price has killed it or it is killing it. 699USD MSRP, you must be trippin'.

GTX 1080 Ti performance at GTX 1080 Ti launch prices 2 years down the line. You can get an RTX 2080 at 699 with less power draw and the option to turn on DXR, regardless how much of a checkbox feature it is at the moment.
Maybe with 8GB framebuffer and 549USD pricetag this would be a great sell, in its current state tho... no bueno.
Lol so we should buy a 2080 that has a check box feature over vega 2? Just because of that? FFS people , both of those cards are crap , but you have nv to thank for that.

Meh. So thanks to nvidia these are the new prices for gpu line ups:

- mid end 450€/600€
- high end 800€
- enthusiast 1200€

Amd followed this pricing. I am personally out. Bring that PlayStation 5.

Never bought an apple product so I will defo not be paying premium price on pc hardware. I'm done.
This is a great idea until you realize 20 games later you're already down $1,200 on consoles. And that's assuming you play only titles that don't require a subscription.

ummm have you never heard of gamefly? they mail you unlimited ps4 or xbox one games for $20 a month, 2x at a time, and as soon as tracking info show its been mailed out they mail you next on your que, and you really can't play more than two games at once anyway if your dedicated to the story or multiplayer, etc.

/shrug but suit yourself thats what im doing. PS5, 4k QLED samsung 55", and gamefly subscription.
