    At a popular retailer in Perth:

    MSI 2060 Gaming Z - $629
    MSI 2070 Gaming Z - $900 (sold out)
    MSI 2080 Gaming X - $1,259
    MSI 2080Ti Gaming X $1,999

    Last 2 generations have been insanely expensive. Luckily my monitor still needs DVI-D so I wasn't tempted to bankrupt myself buying one. Nabbed a 1080 Gaming X on ebay from Moldova for $580 with shipping. Should get $400-$450 back selling my 1070. Nice little upgrade with little cost.

    MSI Gaming series is a heavily modded and overclocked. AMD from similar series cost far higher than MSRP as well.

    900 AUD of 2070 Gaming Z would be 620 USD, and minus taxes it would be 565 USD which is pretty much the price all around the world for this card.
    MSI 2070 Ventus, less modded version with closer to stock frequencies and simplier cooling system cost 440 USD.

    They'd bring out a 2080 Ti Super to replace the regular 2080 Ti in order to avoid the 2080 Super eating into their top end card sales. If the gap between 2080Ti and 2080 Super becomes too narrow, the 2080 Super would eat into the market for the 2080Ti, so they have to expand the gap wide enough to still make the 2080 Ti SKU attractive to buyers. Hence the 2080 Ti Super, because NVIDIA is not only competing with AMD, but also itself when it comes to their card line-up. The profit margins at the high end are nothing to be sneezed at. Plus having yet another fastest gaming card will give them prestige in the eyes of some consumers (those who have to have the latest and greatest no matter the cost).

    prices are kind of screwed up right now.
    was thinking of a 1070ti for a one day deal @240 us then I see a 2060 beats it some how(but the tiny bus falls off when above 1440p)
    I guess I have till mid July to buy any gpu's I sooooo wanna go mid range cards in cf/sli even one does ok at /1080p 1440p but you know what they say...double the gunz double the funz :D

    been awhile I sold every card I had during the mining crazy I kept two both 750ti's:p
    hope some game comes out worth playing
