thank god I managed to grub an ASUS 3080 TUF OC + 5950x before Cyberpunk....
Unpopular opinion, but the issue are not the scalpers, the issue is that the demand of the hardware in 2020 is higher than the units planned.
If you kill all the scalpers before launch day you will still have a shortage. Not just in online stores, but also in the second hand market (where you can find a scalper card at much higher price).
This should be fixed with more gpus arriving. All the scalpers gpu's price will drop drastically once the demand is satisfied properly.
People who are paying extra money to get a card, don't care about the money, at least not at these levels. The card will depreciate quicker for them. But that's not our issue.
Nvidia and AMD could had released these GPUs at a more expensive price tag and still sold out all of them, then drop the price in 2021 when they finally got more units (to prevent overstocking).
Oh yeah, sure, I'm not saying you shouldn't be pleased with having a 3090, but it's mainly for the VRAM, an extra 10-15% performance is hardly significant & even less so when considering longevity over the years.....hopefully it was for the VRAM that you bought it which does indeed increase it's longevity over the 10GB VRAM of the 3080.
I've done exactly what I wanted and am full of glee.
I'll play Cyberpunk slow and exploratory anyway, I still havent finished the 2nd DLC in Witcher 3.
If there are issues I'll play something else until its patched.
I wont need a better GPU, its gonna be great
There will no doubt be faster cards, shrug. It happens a lot lol.
Yeah I'm well aware, the memory is a significant part of its value.
If it was 10GB at that price I would have waited for a 3080.
ps I'm on a 5120x1440p ultrawide display, 12.5% less pixels than UHD, this card has legs with it.
2020 the year that we have the money but can't buy anything because nothing is in stock.
No GPUs, no Consoles, some tablets and phones are also out of stock, many home products are out of stock and many e-shops are temporarily closed because they can't handle the high demand.
And no I'm living in the US or any big EU country but from what I can tell the same story applies everywhere.
The lockdowns in many countries disrupted the market and the offer/demand chain.
What a miserable year.
frack China and the Wuhan bio lab. You screwed over the whole world.
Not if Joe Biden manages to steal this election. If so we're gonna be a communist world.
OMG Give It A Rest
You support communism and mainstream media that lies to the public? GTFO!
the issues here are are basic as basic can be.
the main culprits for Nvidia are low yield on an orphan process, the VRAM supply, and ridiculous expectations of Samsung. the "cost savings" that were made by going to this orphaned process node have been eaten by time and newer processes (esp from Samsung themselves).
for AMD it's quite different (excepting VRAM). it's supply chain issues and ramping up scale of production.
for both you could call it teething pains, but the fact remains we are all impatient geeks.
this is not the place for politics
No its not, but why do you think production values have haulted this year? There is a reason for it.. And there is a reason behind it. It's not a crime to question things..
Pardon the wording, but can somebody ban this dumbass? Not the place for it, and the level is very, very low.
ban it, it hurts I need my safe space
jb is the man, honestly he had a little slip it happens, we need real people round here.
Trump lost election because of his incompetency mate, you don't like it, deal with it
Probably because of a global pandemic and not because of some dumb political conspiracy.
I don't think he should be banned but he definitely should get a warning. Politics are banned for a reason, it instantly derails the thread - which is clearly occurring here and it's more frustrating because I'd like to make a political response back but can't because again, it violates the rules.
I'm not even going to join in, ... ah crap!
