The bots who took all the 3080's and kept you from getting one may have done you a favor.
Insta buying a 3080 before waiting on benchmarks from the other 3XXX or even worse before RDNA2 is shown next month is just as crazy as buying a 2080/2080ti in the last 90 days.
I get some people are...
Denver had 30+ this morning but a line all the way down the shopping center. I stopped counting at 100 people in line.
I know a BB here got 2 in stock and they went to employees.
I don't get the launch day rush.
Call a majority of us gun shy but we have heard that from AMD and "reliable" AMD sources before. From Hawaii to now, AMD always seems to be behind NV especially at the top tier.
Don't get me wrong, I would love AMD to smack NV around like in the past. Just won't hold my breath or get excited...
Anyone who panic sells the 2XXX series now deserves the hit they take.
We don't even know 3XXX availability and if there is a shortage you will find 2XXX creep back up in pricing. Look at the 1080ti card pricing. It initially slumped then shot back up when you couldn't find 2080 or 2080 Ti cards.
Since NV is trying to streamline their product naming I don't see a Ti fitting in.
What I do think will happen is super or refreshed models hitting in 9 months or so. This will also help combat RDNA2 if needed.
I will go with whatever is fastest in my budget. Actual numbers not leaks.
At this point I don't have a ton of hope from Big Navi, just due to constantly being let down by AMD, but lets see what the actual benches say.
Exactly! Like heroin or buying latest gen halo GPUs. It's not a problem, it's a luxury. :)
Unfortunately both lead to uncomfortable sit downs with your family.
Back on topic. It is still all rumors and speculation. Once the cards are in the wild then we will know the truth.
