Doesn't mean they will sell the 3090Ti FE maybe just a prop for all we know (nothing more than a 3090 FE with Ti added on), they said nothing about pricing and said wait till later in the month to hear what will happen. Maybe no FE 3090Ti FE too and maybe that's the end of FE models from them now, who knows with them. Also if they have a FE 3090Ti then expect a MSRP of £1999.99 it wont be less if they have real stock and if priced less they will be unicorn cards and only reviewers will have them and no normal person can buy one, apart from the 5 they send to each country to make it look like they had some to sell.:cry:


I'm sure the AIBS have something to say about the not normal amount of sales of FE models this time too, normally FE models have a very short selling time and go EOL really quickly.

We will have to see, I see another drop of FE for EU today , still dropping 3080 yet the AIB are EOL

Meh

FE and MSRP is where it is at.

Curious to see how much extra that 2GB of VRAM will cost :cry:

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…

No, this is the new normal, the process that began with people paying for e-peen with the Titans, and silly money for Turing, and still continues through covid/scalping has reached its logical conclusion. The GPU market has changed entirely, no low end price range at all, and no limit to pricing at the top end, of course 4000 series will now start at 2K.

There isn't really a mid range price either the minimum is roughly 600 for anything, that's not mid range. It's crazy I'm wondering how this will work out long term will miners and scalpers perpetually sustain this market, are gamers really buying that many of these cards, it doesn't seem likely that prices will ever go back to reasonable.

No I guess not, the old tiers have been obliterated. I don't think GPU mining is going to be around forever, there's better solutions and eventually the Greta's will rightfully kill it, I'm suprised they're not all over it already tbh.

I never though a £1400 GPU would start to look good value :rolleyes: When will the madness end? I'm guessing 2H 2023 if the C word doesn't take a turn for the worse.

in a future you will have to replace the whole computer, because there won't be a backward compatibility.

So I wouldn't be so optimistic.

No FE edition?

Must have missed that. Good news for the resale value of my 3080FE...I suppose.

Apparently this driver is unique to the 3080 12gb which seems a bit odd , just tried to download on nv website and still states only 497.29 as latest... has anyone tried this driver yet ?

It got pulled because for some strange reason it didn't work on any other GPU only the 3080 12GB.. Guessing they forgot the rest of the INF files while stressing that the 3080 12GB is about to get a lot of negative reviews thanks to its price..:cry:
