Can easily see AIB cards being close to double rrp, between £400-500. Madness.

The pricing is hard to guess as 1050ti and 1650 are tightly in the £200/250 mark, with the 1660 variants holding at £400 still(!), but it's only another £100 for the 3060. The 1660s are quite a strange one.

So yeah, £50000000

Hopefully this card will shake things up a bit if the rumours that Nvidia are expecting a big supply of them are true. This plus the Intel A380 hopefully releasing immenintely could potentially help drop prices across the board (or at least in the low to lower mid range segment).

The issue I imagine with the prices for the low range stuff is that the 1050ti and 1650/1660 cards aren't really being made anymore so I guess stock is just what's left floating around out there. If we actually get some brand new cards in full production at those perf levels things could improve.

nVIDIA's website still boldly claiming £239 on these. Presumably that's FE if it happens. Some news outlets claiming there will be a FE. Some claiming not.

Lots of mining channels want the 3050 by the truck load, super efficient

There is nothing efficient in needing more than double the mining rigs for the same hash power. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure it will still be wanted but it's far from being great for mining.
