    $5500 for a VGA card?This made me laugh thanks!:D
    I could even cry tough.
    I recon there are some people who will purchase these even for this price.

    How much the 4090Ti will cost I wonder maybe $9999?

    This is nothing but an e-peen card. The few percentage performance increase you get over the 3090 and even the 3080 which costs four times less is so incredibly small in relation to the astronomical price increase.

    But sure, it will look great next to your forum avatar or forum signature :D

    Let's pray we won't get there as it would be unfathomably greedy (let's not forget this is a consumer card). I don't think nVidia is counting on people selling their kidneys for a graphics card.

    Not only are they counting on people selling them, but re-growing them every year, or so it seems. ;)

    Seriously, though, it looks like we're at a point where there need to be laws against scalping and selling recently released products for prices more than a certain percentage of an MSRP (which should be mandatory to be announced).

    That’s well ripe, there isn’t 4k worth of extra over a 3090, I’ll take two

    MWAHAHAHAHA, AWESOME! :D

    Are there really people out there buying GPUs for these prices??!!
    I can get a good used car for that price.

    Seems to be the next "Titan X Jedi Edition" or what that card was called ...

    That is actually one of the reasons products like this exist.

    Didn't that guy who raised the price of an available drug 7000% get banned from the pharmaceutical industry? He had some Wu-Tang 1st pressing he had to get rid of too, lol. Take this piece of crap CEO and either take him to court or put a gun to his face

    There are, and more than we think. There are lots of folks who can fork 5/6000€ without a sweat.

    Don't give them idea.

    I'd rather spend $5000 more and buy a used Calatrava, but whatever floats people's boats.

    Is "1x new top GPU every 3 years" a debatable option instead of a permanent raise of one's salary? :D

    Buying the best was never a sensible choice.
    Now more than ever.
    What a stupid price for something that will be worth nothing..oh wait, that would be 5 years ago.

    Is this the highest price for any consumer grade GPU ever?

    I remember the Titan X only being 1500 bucks.

    EDIT: Titan Z at 3000 bucks is highest I think

    Remember that is not only the final consumer, but also companys can buy this kind of GPUs for they projects and can bring profits, so this prices can be completely valid in this situations.
