    2.600 € and still selling at a profit? Okay.
    Also, 1kW PSU requirement on the back of the package.

    Probably to fight against automatic picture scanning using Nvidia AI deep neural networks... used for copyright / NDA infractions :D

    Look closely at the fans.

    15MM thick, with a 10MM thick RGB ring below it... they could have gone with goddamn proper 25MM fans...

    This card looks so so cheap, Gigabyte is really bottom of the barrel junk now.

    God damn if they are bottom of the barrel then I don't want to see the prices for the top of the line.

    I reckon they all will look cheap, since their profit margin wont be much at all with the 4000 series due to Nvidia hitting them with a price hike.

    That's $3,921.40 AUD for us, you could build 3 computers with 2nd hand 3080ti's for that price. This is one way to keep people buying 3000 cards.

    Edit - At these prices I expect the 3000 series cards to go back up in price.
