VERY solid deal on a highly desirable card. Code VGAPCJP974. Ends Midnight Pacific time.

https://www.newegg.com/evga-gefor...6814487428

There was a similar sale on EVGA direct about 10 days ago. Looks like this is the beginning of sales leading up to the next gen of cards. I highly doubt this card will ever sell for much less than $1100, it will be sold out before then.

Rumour has it that NVIDIA will unveil Ampere GPUs, the RTX 3000 series, next month at GTC 2020. While we already know that the architecture will be manufactured on a 7 nm process, new leaks claim that the RTX 3000 series will sport up to 826 mm² dies, 20 GB of VRAM and support for PCIe 4.0. All this and other improvements will combine to allow Ampere GPUs to deliver up to double the performance that the existing RTX 20 series does.

I have a feeling these new cards will be price appropriately to their performance. 3080 ti will be $1.5k probably. AMD need to step up their game.

Did you just cite me notebook check? They are worse than WCCF.

Any reference air cooled 3080 is not going to touch this 2080 Ti FTW3 Hybrid. And they will likely cost at least $899. And they will be unproven.

But hey, I also heard that the new cards will be 3 times more powerful, cost $499 and be delivered by Elvis riding a unicorn.

Nvidia has lost their minds with pricing. No annually released consumer gaming card should cost $1500.

Looks like the AMD and GTX 1660 gang showed up. You guys are going to be pretty mad when the Nvidia 3000 series is even more over priced and AMD's stuff doesn't work and Corona virus makes electronics pricing skyrocket and they aren't available until November.

Geez man, have you heard of Google? Of course you're going to see hefty speed increases over the 2080's 12nm process, much lower power consumption, and it'll be cheaper to manufacture. A 7nm process is a huge jump in technology! Go to your preferred source and take a look, if you're not too lazy.

I'm not the only one who thinks this is a crap deal. Don't be blinded because it's the fastest thing out there right now. The 10 series wasn't that much faster then the 9 series. the 20 series got a tiny bump and RT. The 30 series is going to be the upgrade we all wanted a couple years ago. The 20 series was really a disappointment, unless you bought it for RT. I'm still running an RX580, waiting for a giant leap in performance, for a REASONABLE price. This ain't it.

LOL! Hope you're prepared to be massively disappointed. There's no telling how effective Nvidia will be in implementing their version of 7nm, if it will work, and regardless, there's no way they will upset the apple cart of their current price to performance ratios - only incremental improvements.

Why is it that a 18 month old 14nm 9900K is directly comparable to a 8 month old 7nm 3900X in performance and power consumption, when you actually dig into the figures? Why does the 9900K have far more headroom?

The RX580 is a potato, I'm sure you'll be very happy with a 3070 for $650, and it might even be 5% faster than a $650 2080S.

Just wanted to come back and congratulate anyone that got in on this deal.

Word on the street is that 2080 Ti's are out of stock at EVGA and not going to be restocked for several months, if ever. Various models are in stock at vendors but they are not on sale anymore. All the desirable cards will go EOL selling at MSRP, after nearly 2 years.

No outlook on the 3080 Ti.

The high end market for GPUs is screwed up . Whatever benefits of performance these new Ampere cards have will not have their values be passed to the consumer. The cards that will be proper or at least close to adequate pricing will be ones that match AMD's upcoming cards. If AMD's most powerful 6000 series card is about the performance of let's say- 2080Ti and sold for around $450, then every Ampere card by Nvidia at higher performance than that, be it a 3060, 3070, etc. will be jacked up in price because there is no competition in the high end segment. Nvidia will not devalue their existing line of cards instock in the market. Just look at how RTX cards were priced against the GTX 10 series.

The lower end cards sold by Nvidia are the ones that got price cuts. They have also created model number confusion so as uneducated consumers that don't know enough PC tech will buy a GTX card over a Radeon in the mass market segment.
The new Ampere cards will be great if you're going for ones closer to the AMD performance line. But don't expect to see 3060 cards that match an RTX 2080 to be priced like a 2060 for $300. New Nvidia GPUs in the higher end are priced as additions to existing Nvidia cards, not to replace them. Lower end GPUs are priced lower in order to devalue AMD cards.

There's not going to be a $450 AMD card that matches a 2080 Ti. That's just the clickbate tech press rumors.

In all likelihood there will be a Reference RTX 3080 for $899 that is about as powerful as a 2080 Ti A-chip (Founders) card.

RTX 3070 Ref for $699, about as powerful as a 2080 Super.

RTX 3060 Ref for $499, about as powerful as a 2070 Super.

The 3080 Ti could go either way, full chip for $1499 or cut down chip for less, depending on their plans for Titan and workstation cards.

Regardless, there isn't going to be more than a very small incremental improvement in price per performance in the commodity GPU's at $700 or below.
