If this is the price for the 3080 then the 3060 is going to be close to $1000
I dont know why everybody worrying about prices.I never bought a card that was over $300 and I cant remember ever not being able to play a game at high settings.Anything over a 2060 is overkill for any game.
Sorry for the double post but I wanted to pick up on this. Something else to consider is the flexibility the PC offers when it comes to how the hardware is used. Looking at the specs of the Series X it seems to have the horsepower to play most current gen games at 3200x1800 at 60fps, and I say that because that's what my 3600 paired with an overclocked 2070 Super can comfortably achieve, some Ubisoft titles aside. The problem with consoles is that things there don't offer that flexibility at all. Most of the current gen offerings will still be stuck at 30fps and whatever the Series X can get from the dynamic resolution, if used at all. Developers are not going to go back to their past titles and start removing the fps cap or change screen resolutions for the most part, so the console will be stuck twiddling its thumbs a lot of the time.
Forza Horizon 3 recently went EOL, so it is forever stuck at 30fps on console despite the new Xbox having the power to run it at 4K/60, no such problem on PC.
For 1920x1080 60hz, I agree with you.
1440p also. 4k, that's another story. I game at 1440p with everything cranked to the max and get above 60fps on my 2060ko ultra. I have a 27 inch 144hertz gsync panel and will not go back to 60hertz. Thing is, I bought the 2060 as a place holder until the 3080 comes out. Then I am selling this. I paid 330 for it. Hope to get between 200 and 300 if I sell it. As long as I get some money back. But I wonder how much the 3080 will be? What do you guys think?
you do realize not everyone plays mindcraft@360p on a 10in screen?
if YOU think its overkill to have more than a 2060, fine, doesnt mean thats the case for all those million gamers on the planet.
like someone else said, this is just chinese pricing.
Imagine saving 500$ and only able to buy a low-midrange card. So sad.
I thought Nvidia GPU's were manufactured in Taiwan, not over in China.
Probably the pricing for 3090 is because it's the "Titan"? With that said, i am excited to see the performance leap. Coming from a 1080ti i been sitting for ages to try and get an upgrade.
EDIT: On a side note...it's been ages since i posted on the forum..haha my specs are so outdated . Last post was on Skyrim 2016!! HAHA
Chinese retail prices are insanely expensive when converted to other currencies.
Ohhh, I get what you are saying now.
PCMR is officially no lifers gang. The biggest mistake in consumerism's history is, mid ranged GPUs like 5700 XT / RTX 2060 Super should never match the best console's price tag. That's the most erroneous thing ever happened for gamers by benchmarkers. Sit and think yourselves what you did.
I refuse to believe this and I'm still baffled that people think this could actually be true. Please think for one second - would/could you pay such a price for a GPU? nVidias goal is obviously to sell as many as possible but just slapping any price without thinking is not the way this works. They are analyzing what price point this product should have in conjunction to who their target audience is and I'm pretty sure it's not high salary adults in their 50s who could easily afford 2000$. The target audience is after all still gamers between 15-30 years or so. If price is not an issue then why not expect 3k next generation and 4k the one after that?
When it comes to nvidia everything is possible. Like someone above mentioned this reminds me of i7 6950x. A ludocracy overpriced part that came after some regulary overpriced parts with no competiton on sight.
Ah, but supposedly there will be competition in the enthusiast level this time around. Not to mention almost the entire world is either in or heading for a recession. If Nvidia tries to sell these at or higher than Turing prices, it'll bite them in the ass imo.
I think about it that way: Sure they want to sell as many as possible, but it's a delicate balance... they could go with $2k for the 3090 (Titan). Sell the 3080Ti for $1.1k or so and all's good again. 3080 for $850, the way @ACEB stated on the first page of this thread seems rather plausible to me (except we won't see Super models at launch, and probably not even a 3090 beyond a paperlaunch if it's using 7nm TSMC instead of 8nm Samsung).
Also, imagine the top dog 3090 on TSMC 7nm only available as a FE card for $1900 straight from Nvidia, the rest of the lineup with FE and custom cards. Would probably still sell, at least they can keep stored SKUs low and make good profit on even low numbers sales.
I'll take a 3080Ti to 1299$ - only thing is: is the price included DK taxes.................
$2000 seems a little high for a non Ti card but I'm fully expecting it to be in the $1000 - $1500 range. $2000 for the Ti I can believe...
It's a damn nightmare, that's what it is...
Better go back to 1080p gaming, at least that's affordable. My current 2080Ti works in 3440x1440p but I don't exactly get max FPS in every game.
