    OCUK has 3080s in stock for £1200 so I doubt anyone is going to pay 2.5k for one or 1.4k for a 3070 for that matter.

    3080FE are still selling for stupid money on ebay , just take a look at Sold listing and will see that one sold today for £1700 with the avg selling price being £1500+ .

    The Eth merge has been pushed back to at least June next year so the prices will not be changing any time soon it seems.

    Miners are not the only reason for shortages, there is massive demand from everyone. Its just forumites like to blame an easy target

    I know mate everything is up at the minute but mining does play its part in the prices going up and down on gpu, HUB do a monthly feature on gpu prices and they do seem to rise and fall with the price of crypto especially Nvidia cards ... but fear not I'm not some anti miner tbh id rather the merge didn't happen... fingers crossed ;)

    I thought LHR could be largely bypassed now anyway so miners can just buy w/e.

    Was going to be 4 months after london fork, but they want more time for apps etc. Merge wont instantly kill mining, as they want miners to keep doing the verification *,proof of work* till its filly bed in

    Yep can mine 30% ETH and 70% of another coin BUT the full hash rate cards ie 3080FE are still more profitable when mining ETH on its own so will always be in more demand until they work out a 100% ETH unlock for the lhr cards.

    People blame miners but dont forget Nvidia themselves are playing a part in the shortages if rumours are to be believed.

    The 3080 remains an elusive beast

    I was conflicted as usual but decided not to go for it. The games I play working perfectly fine on my 2070 Super and still seeing so many people on here desperate to upgrade from something years older.
