Totally surprising, considering it was already reported manufacturers are looking to get rid of stock.
Still, this doesn't mean Ada will not see another bump in pricing.

They shouldn't, this way they'll sell more, faster.

Not much changed since months ago when 3080 12 dropped to 739 and 3090 Ti to 1099, it's the same. 3080 Ti or 3080 12 is whatever.
Eth is taking forever to crash. but when it does, it would be raining GPUs or they'll just move to another coin.
There is no free fall, nothing is falling right now, only the impatient are falling to this weak seduction.
We are witnessing a free stagnation, the calm before the storm. yeah.

For what I can see at the moment, atleast here, second hand is not interesting at all, 500 - 600 for the rx6800.
Heck people are (trying to) selling gtx1080ti's for 350....
I bought a 6800 nitro+ on ebay for $500 in very good condition.
I was hopeful early on for a drop to ~$300 but my rough estimation is that ~$400 used is the price floor for the forseeable future. The card has only recently dropped to it’s $580 MSRP on Newegg for one model. And there aren’t many models available near that price in the first place. My impression is most Navi 21 went to 6800 xt/6900 xt due to good yields, so the stock for the 6800 is perpetually minimal.
The former 2 can probably still drop in price a bit. In fact I’ve seen some 6800 xts sell for close to $500 in the past week. I’m just a sucker for the nitro line, so I don’t regret snapping up this model. Also, I’d probably just undervolt the hell out of one of those higher end models to drop down closer to 200 watt power draw and end up closer to a slightly UV’d 6800 anyway.

Still more expensive than what they cards have been going for in Taiwan.
Dirt cheap compared to Sweden...
Same here in Finland. Few cheap cards here and there, but in overall, they're still overpriced.

1000 dollars/euro's for a videocard is still just insane.
Let me know when the 3090ti is like 750 so I can buy a more reasonable card like a rx6800 for < 350.
If the 3090ti hits $750 or less, my wallet would start itching me, if not flat out kicking me, while I tell myself to wait for the 40 series inflated prices.

I mean obviously im talking nonsense here, I would not really lose sleep over 500 bucks but well, will see what happens when the next gen launches later

So they are down to the original retail prices? But not in europe... Whoopty dooooo. I think another 8-12 weeks, and we can maybe start talking.

I will do the absolute minimum I can, to help nGreedia.
I removed the Strix 3070 of my wishlist by now, gonna wait for the RTX 4060 next year.

Retail stores can choke on their 3 year old overpriced stock for all i care.

#1 Thank Goodness the crypto market has collapsed. The current market economic conditions no longer support crypto's growth so with luck, it will never put pressure on GPU prices again.

#2 A 3090Ti at $1099 is astounding. I bought my 3090 FTW3 for $1955 (with tax) during Cyberpunk's release weak and now, years later it's depreciated so quickly it's worth less than the launch MSRP of the 3090. Amazing!!!

I'd say most people who want a high end card are waiting for the 4000 series, rather than buying 3000 cards depreciated. My next machine will have a hybrid AIO card, rather than a fanblown.

Same in Germany, the last couple of official price reductions only resulted in minor adjustments in retail or even just short term reductions.
I really don't get it, next gen is less than 2 months away, promising a rather decent jump in performance, crypto is down and ETH is (hopefully) doing it's merge in the same timeframe.
Who are they still targeting with those above MSRP levels?

Enthusiasts and high-end user are waiting for next gen and won't buy now. Everyone else is also waiting for next gen to either buy a then massively discounted card or “pre-order” a next gen budget to midrange card.
Without really massive price cuts, nobody with a sane mind is shopping right now. :kookoo:

I feel the same.

Unfortunately the mid range has maintained its high prices. You still can't get a 3060 nor a 3060 Ti at MSRP, and we are just a couple of months to launch of the new gen cards. But it will be another 3 months after launch before the midrange GPUs are released, Q1 2023.

High end cards like 3080+ certainly start to look more appealing after price drops, I started to think about it then realized I'd need a new PSU for that. So suddenly +$200 over what I'm looking at turns to +$350. I'm really not interested in going much over 200W on any GPU.

$739 is closer to what the 3080Ti should have launched at, in a sane market, at about the same time the vanilla 3080 was reduced to $599 or something.

$680 for a 3080 Ti is pretty tempting, until I realized I have no game that I currently play that remotely needs that level of GPU beef.

This is usually the case. What was new drops to half the value right before the next card come out.

If you need a new card because your old died recently this is good news but for everybody else: Who cares... maybe if they would drop to 25% below MSRP it could be something to consider when upgrading from a quite old or a GPU from a much lower price category.

Last year I caught the last train with the RTX 3070Ti for 800 euros. In two weeks it went up to 1500. I don't regret anything and I'm glad that the prices have become friendly with game lovers. Let's hope we never see the crazy prices of the last two years again.

Europe always gets stiffed with the prices for graphics cards and basically any electronics. In other regions you have price drops like a rock from a cliff and here these go up or stay over MSRP as usual. I think it is because someone has to buy those overpriced GPUs anyway and apparently it is Europe.

Yea, I will say it does make the idea of getting a card intriguing especially that 3090ti. However, I am curious what the 4080/4090 and next generation RX 7900 cards will be like performance wise which keeps staying my hand at this point.

If I could get a used one for like 600-700 I would do it in a heart beat, but seems people are keeping the used cards to close to the new price with no idea if they have been heavily mined on or not.
