Apparently the reviews are coming out on the 26th. And then release the next day. So at least you don’t have to scramble to buy something that you won’t be happy with.

This is how it should be done!

100% more than the AMD card, but its great budget option? It`ll also be more expensive than the 3060Ti FE card.... go go Nv!

I was being ironic. Especially for those frothing at the mouth at AMD for releasing a genuine 1080p budget card. People seem to want a 6600 xt for 250 quid. It's never going to happen.

yeah that way you get to see the reviews and then you can make a decision not have to order it before it go`s out of stock and then find out it`s crap and have to send it back. AMD fiddle

I'd rather have the reviews on release as will help with demand a little. It won't stop the scalpers or miners, but any less demand increases chances for numero uno.

I'd pay £250 max if the reviews confirm it performs like a 1660 ti. Ideally around £220 though.

It's MRSP is £239. It won't be being sold for £250 so no chance at £220.

Given the 6500XT is £225 on Overclockers and some of the cards being sold for £330 then I'd expect £300+ for the 3050. It's said to perform 20% better than a 6500XT and has 8GB of RAM so both demand and cost are going to be high.

1660ti performance is less than what most people were expecting, right?

nope. exactly where i expected it to be.
I dont think performance has been announced yet? But my guess is that it'll probably be between a 1070 and 1080 performance in old money.

the 3060 is barely faster than a 2060, and the 2060 is the same as a 1080.
i can't fathom why anyone would think that the 3050 would be any faster than a 1660ti at best.
