GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Supply is Reportedly Dwindling, Prices on the Rise

Multiple sources confirmed to GamersNexus that the GTX 1080 Ti is starting to be really difficult to find. Supplies are decreasing and the reason seems to be clear: NVIDIA could have stopped the production of those graphics cards. This has had an immediate effect on these cards' prices, which in the last few days have increased everywhere in the world. The performance differences with the new GeForce RTX 2080 are not that important if you don't need the RT part of the equation -we could confirm this on our own review-, but the price of these new graphics card have made considering a 1080 Ti a viable option for many users that are looking to upgrade their systems.

Prices for the RTX 2080 start at $769 at Newegg for example, while the cheapest GTX 1080 Ti costs $850 there. The story is the same at Amazon, where we can find the cheapest RTX 2080 at $799,99 versus the $878.12 for a used model of the GTX 1080 Ti. The high-end model of the Pascal series competes directly with the RTX 2080 and was cheaper not long ago, but that's not the story now. With prices climbing, some are claiming the same will happen to the GTX 1080, GTX 1070 or GTX 1070 Ti in the next few weeks. Reports of RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti inexplicably dying on users could also be fueling consumer-fear, as well as a [temporary] erosion in the value proposition of the RTX 20-series itself, as Microsoft pulled Windows 10 1809 Update, leaving fewer people with DirectX Ray-tracing, the software foundation for RTX.

Yeah.... This has been reported to death all over YT for the last few days. It also doesnt help that Nvidia stopped production of 1080Ti's a while ago to focus on the newer gen cards either. This shortage means ebay prices will most likely go up as well as people scramble to get the champions of the previous generation to tide them over until the 3xxx series of Nvidia cards or if AMD can pull a rabbit out of their hat (It doesnt seem likely but we can only hope)

Glad i made my 1080 Ti purchase before this mad rush begins.

I think you can pretty much thank the Internet for that...

Trash talking DLSS and Ray Tracing. but the sad thing is, some of the trash talk is true. By the time Ray Tracing is a thing and the industry is pushing out support for it the 2080 wont be strong enough to push it and even now it supposedly isnt. wasnt the BF5 delay because they had to tone down ray tracing?

To me PC gaming peaked 2 or 3 years ago and now on a downfall again due to several factors including this one. From high RAM prices, crypto mining, 90€ for 256gb SSDs that can be used for 2 modern games, GPUs that are 3 y old and still cost more than their MRSP, RTX fails and prices 50%+ higher than the previous high-end gen, 500€-2000€ laughable 1000:1 contrast monitors with lack of QC and laughable HDR, Intel shortage and 500€ for a not even best CPU mainstream CPU.

This is nuts and the market will pay for this soon, mark my word. Wait for "next-gen" consoles and then we talk. PC gaming is getting more and more premium.

Unless, of course, you talking about a League of Legends/Dota 2/Fortnite/Heartstone machine, wich pretty much any 3 year old low/mid-end laptop can run with ease.

remember previous new gen releases - when old gen was obsoleted and no one in right mind would buy old gen even for discounted prices? Pepperidge Farm Remembers

Nvidia up to old tricks.
NVidia really doesn't have anything to do with the rising prices, other than stopping the production of the last generation chips. But that is expected with any launch of a new product that replaces the old.

Plus, I believe card manufacturers can actually still order 1080Ti chips from nVidia for the same price they always have been able to, but they aren't producing new cards.

Supply drops, price goes up. It has always been this way. New GPU models show up, previous gen is briefly cheaper because people are awed by shiny new things. If you’re smart, you grab last gen at that moment.

After awhile, old stock diminishes. This is stock from AIB manufacturers. It’s not Nvidia money grubbing. They already got paid before: AIB order chips beforehand. Natirally, price will go up.

1080 are becoming less available too. Good news is that 1070 and 1070Ti are apparently still relatively common, as price is as decent as it has been in a long while.

If I may add my 2 cents on this: My Hardware got stolen completely, I manage to get by with a near 10 year old CPU, similar age mainboard and a GTS450 as a GPU, which I all got for free from friends that didn't need this tech anymore. Still, that stuff consists of a 3GHz Phenom II Quadcore and 8GB of RAM.
I'd really want to get a cheap but good GPU since I'm low on money for three years now. But cheap GPU's around 30-50€, even better ones like HD6950 are only offered as 1GB Variants. For today not useful. And those that have 2GB and are of similar strength for a decent card that wil tide me over for the next year are 100€ upwards. That'S a span of 50€ in the lower budget area, where I simply can't find any GPU at all. That is crazy, I've never seen this before and I buy, sell and watch prices of used hardware for myself 10 years now.

Well, if companies wouldn't milk ALL gamers for money and concentrate on console gaming first, all would be better.
Meanwhile, since my PC can barely handle my beloved Dota in reduced Details with 22FPS, I mostly game on console nowadays.

Citation? When did they announce this? Thinking this is FUD..
By the time Ray Tracing is a thing and the industry is pushing out support for it the 2080 wont be strong enough to push it and even now it supposedly isnt.
More nonsense and a bit of fearmongering.. RTX cards can do RTRT in demos presently and handily so. So the idea of them not running games that will be far more optimized is pure poppycock.

youre gonna have to ask Steve Burke from Gamers Nexus for more info on that. I only learnt about it through watching his video. But if you think about it. It also makes good business sense because Nvidia wants you to buy their 2xxx series cards. When sales of the 2xxxx series is bad, they will try to stop people being able to buy the 1080Ti to drive more 2xxx sales.

That's it? How about something a bit more credible, like a press announcement.
