Rumor: GeForce RTX 3090 Pricing to Arrive Around the $2,000 Mark

I wonder if they could release something at $10,000 and move it out. I have a feeling the market segment is there if the performance is adequately high relative to the other cards. Not even ridiculously faster. Just say 2x faster? It would be interesting. They could put some really expensive tech into a product with margins like that.

On the other hand at $2000 if AMD was actually a threat, we'd see NV bringing some fancier stuff to gaming already like their own HBM2 configuration.

Im not short on money, but that rumoured price is out-freaking-rageous. Thats about double the price of the 2080ti, which cost me a bit under 1 and a half grand. Ive purchased every ti, but if this thing is 2K USD, that would be probably 2 and a half grand here - NOPE!

It will come down to performance.

If the performance uplift is worth then people might pay (if there is a game compelling them to do so, or to drive their 4k monitors). It seems like the 3090 is the Titan-level SKU for the market... and the 3080 and 3070 would be the sweet spot.

If the 3080 at ~$800 is faster than a 2080ti by the rumored 30% then these prices are actually pretty good. If they are still insane at $1200 then we will have to wait for AMD (or intel LOL) to release something that will compete. Nvidia top level SKUs have been stupidly priced for a long time now, so around $2k is not unheard of.

Haha, I see all of you saying "no, never" and two months from now I see half of you bragging about your 3090s...
Just stop supporting them and stop buying that shit. Its not nvidias fault that they can raise prizes more and more, they are a company, making money is what they do.
Its up to you to show that you wont pay these ridiculus prizes!
I think you mean prices. Prizes is something entirely different, unless you're saying Nvidia is so cheap that they might as well be giving these cards away...

I really hope that this is nothing more than a rumour in the end. In the current economy it would be madness.

Same as we are seeing here I guess. I do recall the launch video. All tech launch video's have me laughing and rent-a-mob are easy to spot with the orgasmic over reaction.

Nvidia typically has high price per entry. Even my lowly RTX2060 was expensive as far as I'm concerned. I'm not prepared to spend more than 600 US, after all I'm still at 1080/144.

Current prices of 2080ti's are laughable and this card replacing it, with a price increase, in this current economy? Nvidia stock: SELL. In all seriousness, I would hope high prices would backfire on Nvidia, though it probably won't.

Fingers crossed AMD gives them actual competition this time around.

3090 might be used to create tier above 80ti, but cheaper than Titan (which is 2.5k for RTX by the way)
Going straight to 2k bucks is a bit harsh, though, 1500-ish would be right within milking reach.

Buy what you can afford. Easy.
Stupid, not easy. Price/perf matters

Because they know very well who is Nvidia and how they operate. I've said this in the original story, I fear for a world where Nvidia has their hands on practically every mobile and embedded device.
I couldn't imagine a world where I wouldn't want an arm phone but it's on the horizon, no walls please.

Damn I thought RISC V would never be on the cards in my phone.

Same as we are seeing here I guess. I do recall the launch video. All tech launch video's have me laughing and rent-a-mob are easy to spot with the orgasmic over reaction.

It always was, even back in the day some git had four 3Dfx in sync while I had a matrox 3d 1st gen.
I always owned one console, always the tech underdogs , sega, Sony , cd32 colecovision, my mate always had two or three and always better than mine.
There's always a bigger dog.

Just get what you need , the dream isn't usually worth it ,anyone who buys a 3080/90 and connects it to a random ass 1080p needs his head sorting, your monitor should cost at least half the price of your GPU to make sense.

Upgrade hemmingstamp!

Nvidia ,buy arm, imagine the lobbying going on in a few ,not one country.

Haha. Luxury!
I recall the days of staring at the Atari 2600 in the local electronics store windows and drooling. Could never afford it.

Never!
I just don't like the feeling of being shafted, and that's the reason I stay clear of new tech for at least for a couple of years.
If a bargain is to be had then fair enough. Blame my parents.

Another institution gone. Not going down well with the Brit / Japan trade negotiations allegedly.

It is going to cost $1400-1500. The best custom cards will cost $1800+. It is not great, but it is also not the end of the world. 2 years, 20% price increase is not terrible - if the card delivers. There are rumours that even the 3070 will surpass the 2080ti, and if that is true, this will be one of the better Geforce generations.

Of course, Nvidia can charge whatever they want. But it wasn't so long ago that they had irritated consumers in relation to pricing related to bitcoin as well as the underwhelming initial release of RTX. Of course, that gave AMD some opportunities. However, it could be much much worse this time, because if they get too greedy, they will also have to contend with Intel GPU's coming next year AND the PS5 and XBOX Series X coming at the end of this year.

At the very least, if I was in the market for gaming related hardware, I would take a wait and see approach. Nvidia may indeed start off with high prices, but you could also see them back peddle as well, if they realize they are losing market share.

Some random dude posts a random price tag that he pulled out of his... and suddenly bunch of folks jump the ngreedia train like it's set in stone.
We all know Jensen makes last minute calls when it comes to pricing. We don't even know if 3090 or whatever it's called even exists.
Two weeks until announcement. We'll find out soon enough.
Some of us do. The 3090 does exist and it's going to be a 24GB card. The 3080 is a 10GB card. Those are cards that will launch initially.

AMD has absolutely no response in the highest tier, so nvidia can dictate prices. After all the top tier GPUs are luxury items bought by people who have the money and want to show off their money. If there are buyers, then nvidia will offer it.

People whinge about regional pricing for games, but I see it as only fair for different economic regions, bring it in for all hardware too.
This card will be over $3,000 AU. under the current model.

If these amounts are in US$, then that would be about = $4,000.00 in AU dollars.

Which means that the only way I would buy one of these is if I won our Aus Lotto - country wide lottery

=====================================
FYI - my current card is a Gigabyte GTX1080 Ti waterforce Extreme which cost me = $1755.00 AU about 3 years ago !!!

Why not 4000 USD? We all could be millionaires with a Geforce 3090 at our fingertips.
