Looking on ebay I see a few used 2080 supers for "buy it now" in the 400 dollar range.

Newegg has an Asus TUF 3060ti (which is one of the better AIB cards in terms of cooling/perf) for 479.99 right now, brand new/free shipping in stock.

3060ti is basically the same performance wise as 2080s but it's new so you get a warranty and a generation newer so better longer term drivers.... That's probably worth 70 dollars.

u/jcr4990 Specs Here 9d ago

3090 msrp at launch was $1500. This is before people were really scalping GPU's. Did people just forget that? I'm kind of surprised 4090 is ONLY $100 more. Don't get me wrong it's still waaaaaaaay too much. I just don't understand why anyone is surprised here. The bar was set for high end GPU's in this price range 2 years ago. Did people think they were gonna have a change of heart and drop 4090's at $800?

94

u/Sarcophilus 9d ago

I think the 4090 pricing is somewhat reasonable. The 4080 are nuts though, especially the 12GB version.

88

u/jackrave i7 9700K/RTX 2080/16GB 3200 9d ago

It feels like they’re trying the movie-theatre-popcorn maneuver here. They either want you to buy out their 3080/3090 stock because its cheaper than the 4080 OR say fuck it and shell out the extra for the 4090.

45

u/Fritzkier 9d ago

and you're correct.

if their objective is to clear up 30 series stocks, and looking at some discussion, it seems nvidia is kinda right on point with this strategy, unfortunately.

People said they rather buy 30 series card, which is Nvidia main objective from the start. Nvidia still wins regardless, as long people aren't buying AMD/Intel cards.

6

u/Jamie00003 9d ago

Not if people are buying used cards, which is likely what will happen, especially with the crypto crash and people dumping cards for the 40 series. I know I did because for whatever reason they stopped selling 3080 founders edition, it never seemed to go back into stock so I said screw it and bought a used 3080ti for £700.

It’s not the 4090 people have an issue with. The 3080 16gb and “3080” 12 gb (3070 let’s be real) are the real issue

18

u/WordsOfRadiants 9d ago

4090's pricing is reasonable relative to the 3090, especially considering the costs to make the cards probably shot up 30% for them. The issue is the 4080 12gb at $900. Yes, their costs went up a good amount this year, but it's incredibly anti-consumer to name it the same as a card that shares none of the same specs. And $900? Even with their increased costs, they're probably actually increasing their margins with that price. Ridiculous. Of course, this is probably also done because of the massive amounts of 30 series cards they have left over. But that's their own damn fault, and they're pushing the costs onto the consumers again (of course).

The 3080ti is $900 but I'm hesitating on paying 30% more for 10-15% increased performance. On the other hand, after the waterblock I'm still in for less than the 4080 12gb... Hmm.

u/Kayakingtheredriver 9d ago

Really, other than raw horsepower and lighting, there isn't really a whole lot of difference. My 1080 still does what I need it to do for my 1440p widescreen. I'd like to upgrade, and the lighting is better, but I have been playing with the lighting in games I currently get, my whole life. I don't know what I am missing and I just can't be arsed to pay $1k to get it. I can wait until a card that gives me major upgrade improvement is in my $4-$500 range. There is no way these prices hold without crazy demand. They have to make them in bulk for it to be cost effective to produce so if they don't sell at mining prices still they will have to capitulate.

Similar boat. 2070S, Steam Deck, Oculus Q2, Switch, Xbox One S. Probs ready to part with the Switch. I really want a better GPU for better VR, but may have to wait until its more affordable. Maybe AMD RX 7000 will be good enough for that.

Steam Deck gets most of my non MOBA gaming. If I could play LoL on the deck via a dock without needing to install windows, I'd probably not touch my desktop except for VR. It really has changed the way I game. F*ck Nvidia.

Funny thing is, when Nvidia drops their prices to match AMD, by say $200, but hold a $100 premium over AMD, people will buy Nvidia.

It's the, "oh nice, AMD caused Nvidia to drop prices a bit, that's good enough for me to buy now".

u/sunblazer 9d ago

Too many people cry about NVIDIA and then purchase from them again on the next upgrade cycle. Forgetting all the shady shit NVIDIA have done over the years - 3.5GB fiasco anyone?

I don't know how people do it. I bought a GTX 670 back in the day and for me personally, I thought that card aged badly (maybe games changed a lot in that time). Anyway, that's the way i felt and still feel in hindsight. I felt my subsequent R9 390 was supported for way longer comparatively.

u/TheBeliskner 9d ago

I bought my RX480 because I was done with Nvidia BS 5 years ago, it's only gotten worse since then. People buying their shit need to stop so they have a major recalibration. Jensen needs the boot.

I had been saving for a while, with last year's crazy prices I was willing to drop €1500 to replace my trusty old 1070.

I even considered the 4080 for 1600€, but then common sense kicked in and I bought a 3080ti for €1000.

My sister also had been saving & waiting, gonna put the same card in her system, and I'm not gonna recommend the 4000 series to our customers either.

u/xFatSnacks PC Master Race 9d ago

I reckon you'll be glad you went for the 3080ti in the long run. The 4000 series cards are a joke at that msrp. I'd kill for a 3080ti lol. I plan on using my 2070S for as long as possible.

I'm guessing there is some nvidias engineers that tearing their hair out on how dumb this is. It's like dumb kpis, the higher number the better, who cares about performance?

And yes, i agree the 4080 naming for two very different cards should almost, if not actually, be illegal.

I’ve told people that the only reason I bought a 3090 (at MSRP BTW, got VERY lucky) was because the Disney trip my friends and I planned for got axed because of the COVID shutdown. If that didn’t happen I’d still be rocking a GTX1080 FTW with a Hydrocopper water block.

I honestly think that from here on in I’ll be recommending and buying AMD cards if there’s a necessary upgrade.

I got a 3070, a 165Hz 2k monitor. Would spend hours upon hours tweaking and researching to get the most optimal everything. Steady 144, or steady 90 etc etc.

Eventually I was just exhausted from that and would stop gaming altogether.

Then I decided "fuck this" closed all fps counters. Open game crank it to the max and just play it and see if I lt bothers me. If it does lower some shit until it stops bothering me.

Maybe I'm playing at 40 fps? 60? 120? 150? No idea. Just stopped caring about it. If I'm having fun what do I care?
