Think there were 3080 FEs on the drop last night - £650
But in the scheme of things £799 isn't too bad for a 3070ti as they've mostly been £900+... however stock is up and prices are-a-falling currently so...
I personally think the FE is a marketing and pr triumph - it's the only interesting thing in a totally somnambulant graphics card market. Even if there are some in stock as there are currently they're so expensive you really feel like you're getting ripped off. There doesn't have to be that...

I think the forum has functioned well as a technology self help group as everyone has faced the same thing - their hobby and main leisure fun transitioning into something unaffordable to many. Could do with a few decent new ‘pc-type’ strat/RPG/squad tactical games to make it all worthwhile too…
Autoscalped indeed. The other day I paid more for a graphics card than I ever thought possible (more than an entire console) and congratulated myself on a bargain. No sign of the market realigning back to ‘normal’ is there…
