    Yeah this will be fake, there is no way it would jump up 900 dollars, almost double. And why the liquid one would be cheaper?

    Didn't Nvidia say this generation should be cheaper? Either way who would buy nvidia if AMD is 3 times less for 5 fps

    EDIT: Then again the X90 series used to be dual cards? so price wise this makes a little more sense if we are going back to that like the 590/690

    Maybe it's three times as fast and thus twice as expensive.... j/k.

    These are Chinese prices. nVidia is dogshit expensive here! a higher-end 2080ti custom version already costs 13000 RMB here.. 16000 for the MSI Lightning version for example. USD prices should be lower.

    I hope AMD has some game, when i got my 1080Ti for $629 new, but there comes a time when a fool and his money are soon parted.

    The only way that even remotely makes sense is if it's a dual GPU card. If that's true though, I surely hope they have something up their sleeve to make the OS see it as a single GPU.

    The sentence starts with the word rumour.
    That's enough to even start to considerate a vocal opinion.
    Let's wait and see, as usual.

    I won't be surprised with
    3090 $2000
    3080 TI $1299
    3080 super $849
    3080 $799
    3070 TI? $699
    3070 super $599
    3070 $ 549
    3060 super $449
    3060 $ 399
    3050 super $349
    3050 $ 299

    I think they are trying to re jig the whole stack so things like the 3040 will be more like an old 960 in terms of where the product lays, its just going to take a bit of convincing because people arent used to such a stack of cards. Nvidia figured out a while back that theres plenty of room in the $500 - $1000 range to fill it with multiple cards instead of like in the past where there was usually just 1 card between 500 - 800. Makes sense from a business perspective, as long as there performance for price is there I don't care what tag my card has

    No, I don't think they would have ever said that. Nvidia most certainly wouldn't want to make them cheaper, especially if they need to use a higher amount of more expensive RAM.

    If you have the proper canals and connections to exclude payment of VAT or buy at wholesale pricing, why not? Most people with higher end or enthusiast grade components have found always a way to not pay full retail price, ever.

    I dont believe it. If true it may be a new tier above the usual xx80 ti and a limited production run of just a few hundred cards. Because at $2000, they will never sell in the sort of volume they did the 2080ti.

    I paid $169.99 for my GTX 1060. Two days later it was $490 something+ and barely ever came down and still costs more than that now.

    Same, and I will be pissed that it was over $199. I would not pay more than 3-350 for the most absolute high end card...which I have never owned, of course. Well, excpet that one time I won a Radeon 9800 Pro when it was the shizzle. I had about 2 months where I had the best card in town.

    For reference, I just got this guitar for $130. Metal ore was mined...trees Died! Not paying 3x that for tiny little circuit board made of sand and copper that costs $9.99 to make. Also look at all the stuff that goes into making a motherboard, and that only costs $78-99.99 yet they think these single purpose little daughter-boards should cost 4-800? dafu?

    Be recycled balsa wood that guitar, for that price.

    Most of the cost of GPU goes back into tech research generally. Small amount is the hardware. Large amount is R&D.
