I don't know how people know these stats or where they get it from without having a central sale price on every card database.

What about other sold places.

The launch was real bad timing on big Navi, AMD's allocation of 7nm was largely used up by the console launch.

Agreed, AMD clearly missed an open goal.

Instead of coming in hard and fast with big stock and allocation following the Ampeer flop launch , they came in weak and merk and totally balls it up.

how can you scalp a 3080 when the MSI Suprim X costs £1100, unless someone buys the card at £1500

Because not all 3080s are £1100. Those making large margins are usually the FE. Literally see people get confirmed order then eBay listings going up right after.

I don’t think the prices are much different. 2080 only had an MSRP of £749, that’s what I paid for my 3080.

Turing was scalped directly from Nvidia to the consumer.

The 2080 offered 1080Ti performance for 1080Ti money....only a generation late.

The 3070 and 3080 *at retail* put us back in line with everything that came before Turing, then Covid, lockdowns, and money-printing, blew up demand and hiked prices back to Turing's terrible value levels.

Agreed. The FE 3080 is only £649, which is decent value direct from nvidia. I wouldn’t be paying much more for a card with a marginally better cooler. Certainly not £8-9-1000 some vendors are asking and certainly not scalper prices.

I mean the custom 3090’s are nearly £2000. Direct from nvidia they cost £1399.
