    Clearly not enough considering their sales figures for it were poor. This sort of gouging is starting to fail in phone markets and to a degree in the gaming industry.

    Eventually a level of ‘good enough’ is reached for most people.

    Though it’s a tad irrelevant for absolute best in market products, as there will always be a market for the whales among us.

    Accorded to JPR, Q4 2018 was the worst quarter in 10 years due to collapsed of crypto-mining but 3 months on after RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080 and RTX 2070 launched and moved out GTX 1000 series excessive stock saw Nvidia gained 81.2% marketshare, 6.9% increase compared to Q3 2018's 74.3%. AMD had the worst Q4 2018 with AIB marketshare collapsed to 18.8%.

    AMD's Raise The Game Fully Loaded 3 games Resident Evil 2, Devil May Cry 5 and The Division 2 promotion began on 15 November 2018 had not helped it.

    Q1 2019 will be interesting to see if Nvidia still gain marketshare with 2 free games in Jan and Feb and now 3 games from March for RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 2080, 1 free game of choice for RTX 2060 and RTX 2070.

    RTX was great for me when the second-hand market was flooded with 1080ti's and picked up a bargain on aorus extreme!

    My evga step-up queue matured today - i can trade in my 1080ti FTW for a 2080ti for around 650 quid. Running 3440x1440 and 7700k. I was on the fence at the time - mmm decisions decisions
