I may be completely daft, but was that sarcasm, or not?
It was meaning even a midrange gpus today are a luxury, sadly.
Well no it's not. But at least for mid range cards, there's competition. You can buy cheaper mid range parts.
Yes it was sarcasm. But he's right as well, I have to agree. Top cards show a different picture though, with no competition (at least not until RDNA2 hits the shelves). There is no choice if you want top dog. Like you said, for that top card one has to have more cash at hand for our hobby / luxury.
Well, yes, that sadly is the truth.
You're right. If you want to play current games on the best possible picture and/or framerate, you have to accept the steep prices. It wasn't always as bad (my venerable GTX 670 was nowhere near the price of what the 3070 is probably going to be), but times change.
Excited for the wait to be over. My 1080ti has been an amazing performer but I'm ready to snag a rtx3080 when preorders open up.. don't think my case is big enough for the 3090
You need oxygen, water and food, in that order of priority. If money was an issue then PC gaming would be way way way down my list of priorities. I have been poor, not eating shoe leather poor but just be able to pay the mortgage and bills at 24 with a young family. I didn't have. PC then, nor a consol nor anything that wasn't essential. Life is different now, I have a significant amount of disposable income each month, due to hard work, a little luck and some entrepreneurial risks taken along the line. I'm still not paying a kidney for a piece of PC hardware though.
Well in his billionaire head he is practically giving it away for free at that price. If he had his way (ie he thought he could con commoners to pay it) it would be $3000+ I reckon.
1440p, everything maxed out, raytracing on and 10gb vram = and its gone
Can't wait for the most expensive GPU's ever to be announced.. With so much VRAM for future gaming in 4K, RT on, ultra details in 2021! Only for $1400..
Then Big Navi will come and finally destroy RTX 2080Ti! Wait..
Already got a kidney on the black market for sale, ready to extract the second at a moments notice...
I mean, I technically have the money saved up even up to a 3090 (thanks COVID for keeping me the f*** home during vacations), but it's still hard tu argue such price. Also, the power intake may be a bit too much for my tastes (we'll see once the benchmarks hit).
I'm here for the giveaway
According to what I have heard on some youtube channel (from their NVidia source), the availability of the 3090 will be absolutely tiny, and not until end of this month, so even if you have the money and want to buy it, you probably won't be able to for a good while yet.
very cool! let's see what's what.
So you are going to spend $2000 or even $1400 on that crap? Well, you justify that you are an easily milkable person.
The winners will definitely be those who waited until now to buy used GPUs at great prices from early adopters.
Even at 3000, he would probably think that it´s still to cheap...
Too late, it´s obvious that that i´m going to be the winner. Better look for another giveaway...
Eeexactly. I'm scoping out for those 2070 Supers as soon as these 3000 cards hit the market. That's the only reason I'm excited for this new line-up! Name your price and bring 'em on in, Nvidia!
Im one of those but this time in done waiting. Well, maybe i'll wait for rdna2.
