This is how the 3080 should have been on launch day.

That link is also insultingly devoid of information. Here's the lowdown on somewhere not overrun by marketing gibberish and sales morons:

Where are you seeing prices? Is it $400 more than the 3080 10GB everywhere, or just $400 more than the price you remember a 3080 10GB being last month?

Thanks, that's some geolocation cookie bullshit. If I click on the product myself it doesn't take me to the US store page, your links give me the US pricing.

Pretty depressing.... I feel bad for those who have been waiting nearly a year or longer for a vanilla 3080 to be around MSRP this basically kills any chance of that. Guessing the 3070ti 16G is next with a msrp of 1000-1100.

Happy no GPU day. The celebration day Nvidia and AMD decided to screw us all.

No 12GB FE cards, just AIB's....The Scalpers Paradise, continues.
Nvidia tells us go to GeForce now and rent a GeForce RTX 3080 over the internet that you will never ever have in your possession. Wow.

Why sell the original 3080 with it's lower price expectation when they can "refresh" it and put an extra 50% on top? It's really a no brainer :nutkick: (this emoji being green is so fitting right now)

Got to say Nvidia has plumbed new lows with these newer 30xx card pricing. God I hope Intel Alchemist series puts the hurt on them. On principle I wouldn't buy another card from them.

I'm not going to defend Nvidia, but there's nothing wrong with the pricing of these - they are priced exactly how they should be in the current market.

The blame Nvidia rightly deserve is in refusing to refresh the 1600-series and leaving it almost two full years to bring an entry-level Ampere to market to tackle the mainstream users. It's profiteering, sure, but I don't think any gamers are fond of AMD or Nvidia for completely ignoring the largest consumer demographic that made them both into the successful giants they are today. If times change and either AMD or Nvidia find themselves in financial difficulty (unlikely, I know), the last four years are going to be hard to forget for any mainstream buyers when both AMD and Nvidia have basically told their largest demographic to pony up for a higher-end model or f**k off.

Asus 3080 12GB starting at 1500 euros. That's a huge pricing problem. Some AIB's are absolute sub-human scum

€1500 is what it's worth to people who actively buy it and maintain that price.
I don't like the high GPU prices either but I do have to laugh at people who get all salty at suppliers and manufacturers because they don't understand basic capitalism.

Since before you were born, products were worth what people were willing to pay for them. There is now a high demand from a large group of people willing to pay more than you or I are happy with. Until they stop buying cards at the higher prices, there is no way in hell that GPU prices are going to come down.

For pricing to return even vaguely to 'normal'
  • Supply has to massively increase
    (it won't because all of the semiconductor foundries are working overtime and new foundries are being brought online as fast as economically viable)

    OR

  • Demand has to massively reduce
    (which relies on ETH and every other profitable cryptocurrency suddenly collapsing in a way that is so final and irreversible that nobody will continue to mine prospectively. Even if all of the cryptocurrency mining was deleted from the face of the earth and erased from history, demand from gamers and professionals working on their home computers is still massively higher than it used to be pre-pandemic)
So yeah, high prices are here for a while. Maybe half a decade or more. That may be pessimistic but I've educated myself in the mechanics and economics, and I'm professionally involved in enterprise IT industry, the system-integrator industry and cryptocurrency industry. My pessimistic guesses are at least informed, calculated guesses that I have actively put five-digit sums of investment into. I'm currently reaping the rewards of those calculated guesses, like any successful market analyst would, and it won't be too long before I'm willing to put six-digit sums of investment into the GPU market. TL;DR, I'm confident enough that I've put my money where my mouth is and it's paying off.
