    To be cost competitive with consoles, their card with similar performance to RTX 2080 (which is where next gen consoles will sit) will be at around 500 mark, I am guessing that will be 3070, and we can just scale from there.

    3060 - $350
    3070 - $500
    3080 - $700
    3090 - $1000 (considering there is no 3080ti, which is what the rumours have been saying till now. But if 3080Ti exists this is where 3080Ti will sit, and 3090 will be a Titan replacement, a halo product)

    Again, this is just a guess. So, all these $2000 rumours could be nVidia testing waters, or could be just rumours.

    If this wont be true, why would anyone even buy a PC for gaming anymore?

    EDIT: Found some interesting info for this prediction. XFX RX 5700 XT Triple Dissipation 8GB GDDR6, which is probably going to compete with 3060 is already CAD478 or USD360. So, next gen that competes with 5700xt or slightly beats it will be around USD350. So, the numbers above stand.

    nVidia's worst decision could be increase the price, with COVID19 still around fewer and fewer people gonna buy those things and go straight to consoles.

    Why would you buy $500 GPU if you can buy a console and seal the deal(assuming you don't own a PC or just want to be gaming on more budget friendly option).

    I hope that for $500-600 i can upgrade the 1080TI to something that gives 2080TI performance or even better.

    Those rumors are based on Nvidia having to bring forward the Ampere Titan in order to compete with Big Navi when the AMD card was also rumoured to be powered by magic and offer 50% over 2080ti.

    NVIDIA can make soup if it costs 2000. I won't buy it EVER! I hope Intel will join the war and help bring prices down (yes, I'm naive).

    Actually the RTX 3090 (24 GB GDDR6X) seems to be the Titan replacement, and therefore a lot cheaper than previous generation
    (RTX Titan 24GB GDDR6 = $2499 @ release).
    So $1999 sounds not that bad, if you have this in mind.;) Of course it's absolutely not worth that much, as none of the prev. Titans were...
    (Even considering the raw performance uplift of ca.14-15%)

    Further predictions:
    RTX 3080Ti - $999 (+ 30-32% comp. 2080Ti perf.)
    RTX 3080 - $799 (+20-24 % comp. 2080Ti perf. = ca. RTX Titan perf.) +100% RT cores (136 / 68)

    Reminder:
    (RTX 2080Ti @ release: $999)
    (RTX 2080 @ release: $699)

    If it's cheaper, it doesn't even have to be faster. NVIDIA deserves boycott, if rumor prices are real!

    Well that was supposed to be the MSRP on the 2080ti but it didn't really end up like that. $800 for the 3080 is unappealing, particularly with 10GB.

    And Intel should have their Desktop (Gamer) Xe card ready in 2021 on TSMC 6nm (All professional/DC cards will be on Intel 10nm)
    with 1 full fledged chip (512EU / 4096cores) reaching ca.10TFLOPS (RTX 2080 / RX5700XT territory). So expect only a race in
    the mid range segment... (like Navi did last year)

    Of course every reseller ignores Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), if demand is extremely high (because of mining craze).

    If it was 3x faster than RTX2080ti, then, I wouldn't have a problem with that price tbh. I'd at a push even try to get one lol.

    :) ca. +40% more perf. seems realistic.

    I see close, but slightly off of your prediction.

    3090 = 1750-1999 range, probably the higher end of scale (+50-55% perf over 2080 Ti)
    3080 Ti = 1299-1399 (~15% cost over 2080 Ti MSRP, +30-35% perf )
    3080 = 799 (we line up at this point) (+15-20% perf over 2080 Ti)

    All above will double RT performance making it not only free in existing titles for performance but for a number of coming titles as well, including upcoming Cyberpunk 2077. RT for free will become the standard.

    I also see the 3090 as Titan-class hardware, so while I am feeling the pain of creative rearrangement of my bills, I still see 2000 dollars as a good deal for a card that is essentially significantly faster than the existing Titan RTX and 500 dollars cheaper. Same amount of ram, but much faster ram. Way more shader units. KILLER new formfactor for the Founders Edition that results in a very unique looking cooler. Probable +20 advanced chokes under that wicked cooler.

    Yup, I have to say that $1999.99 is painfully correct sounding for a card that will likely stomp on the existing Titan RTX and do so for a solid chunk cheaper. Take my soul and leave a black hole in my bank account, but I will enter ray tracing bliss for years to come in exchange. Deal. Take mah money NAOW!

    Edit - Just at a guess, 3090 will likely rake Titan RTX over the coals in performance to the tune of around a solid 30% or so at WORST cases...

    Edit #2 - Also at a guess, Titan Ampere will be a MONSTER of GA102 unlocked to full 5376 shaders, pack 30-32Gb (maybe 48???) GDDR6X (makes less sense at this capacity, but is GA102's design) or HBM2e (makes more sense for capacity amount, but GA102 not designed for it), and maybe retain some of A100's tensor power, but will hit a new stratospheric price of 3000-3500 bucks.

    Yes but the low range of today are yesterdays monster cards.
    The 3060 will be no slouch.

    Rumor says 1080 Ti like raster performance, certainly no slouch indeed!

    Any update on if this thing is going to require new PSUs? Seems like near £1500 and the price of a new decent PSU to actually use this new GPU in the middle of what could be the worse global financial crisis is going to put this thing out of the reach of quite a few people.

    Yesterday's monster cards are many many years old which in the past would have been several times the amount of generations passing as they do now. And those cards were only "monsters" if you're forever stuck in the past playing at 1080p 60Hz. A 1080 Ti (which is anywhere from 2070 to 2080 Super performance depending on the game) shows how fracking pathetic the 2000 series was, and that card was brought to its knees if you wanted to play at high refresh rates at 1440p, even on release.

    We have very different definitions of what a "monster card" is. The upcoming consoles make a serious case for just giving up on playing new releases on PC. Who the frack is going to pay insane prices for a single card when an entire system giving an acceptable experience at a fraction the cost exists?

    This upcoming gen isn't the PS3 with its ass sub-720 (scaled to 720p and sold as that) res, 30 fps max often dropping below 20, 256MB VRAM resulting in 1990s looking textures, etc, etc. I gave up playing even exclusives on consoles back then because they were so crap. To me the experience was so bad I'd rather wait a decade for a PC release or emulation on PC...

    But the XBSX and even the weak PS5? Those look like perfectly acceptable gaming experiences to me.

    Blame people who still buy Ngreedia blindly, companies just want to make a buck to pay dividends.
    AMD has so much money waiting for them if they can at least pull a competitive card.
    Doesn't have to win, just needs to be 10% close costing 15% less and it wins.
