So the rumours were true and there will be no founders edition.

Begs the question, will the 3080fe 10gb be discontinued. Would be a very cynical move if it was.

They are using the chance to raise prices, what about any of Nvidias moves over the last 2 years haven't struck you as a "cynical moves"? Nvidia are now as cynical and anti-consumer as it gets and to act surprised by that is just silly. This is Nvidia now.

I've never been so happy to have a 10gb card lol. In a couple of year that setting or two to keep within 10gb are going to cost half a grand!

Yea I agree disgraceful.

They must have made sooooooo much money selling cards to miners, and then sell the few spare ones at rediculous prices to regularly consumers.

The ONLY reason I have a Nvidia card is because Gibbo sorted me on a forum members deal, so it was a no brainer.

As long as nvidias performance remains uncontested they will rake in the money from price rises.
All eyes and hopes are on intel now

What about AMD you forgot about them they really closed the gap in performance, not sure how long it will take intel to compete at the high end buy they could help in the low to mid end

at the end of the day hash rate sells cards and amd just cant compete.

They ain't that much better now with LHR even with the workarounds power use is higher

ETH difficulty is gradually going up so less rewards to go around add in possiblity of ETH going POS which ends ETH GPU mining

What happens next after that we will see

Bleeding heck man, that is an impressive deal as of 2022! ebay prices for non-LHR 3080s are three times that today.

Got it back in June but from France. Paid about £700 but got the import duty refunded about 4 months later.
