personally speaking, I don't come here daily to read about hardware reviews. I come here:
- to read the latest happenings/insights in the tech industry
- to ask/give hardware/software help when it's needed
- to get/give a few chuckles (some of the videos posted here at [H] are the most...
that's not the point. The point is while R&D is still going on and improving it until it actually is worth the $$$ people are paying for it, as though it's a done deal already - like what happened with physX

"As the company name is stylized, "nVIDIA" is pronounced invidia, a Latin word for envy. This sense is a "looking upon" associated with the EVIL EYE, also derived from the Latin invidere (to look in a HOSTILE manner)." - Quora website

I realize the 2080 Ti card is cutting edge and all such tech has always been way over-priced at release and so that those who have the money to burn can get their hands on the tech first no different than way back when when cell phones were the size of a shoe box.
But it's supposed to trickle...
using Nvidia's current pricing scheme pricing the next gen release 2-3 years from now will put the 3080 Ti at about $1899 upon release
1080 Ti was $699 on release, half of that is $3500 then add back in to the $699 and add a bit for inflation and we have the 2080 Ti's price at release ...
Because it's who they are (it's in the very name "Nvidia", look up the meaning) and it exposed Nvidia's real self, who they really are and how they intend to do business. Someone on this page said, " But then how can one sign a deal with the devil! " and IMO they are correct
these prices are what happens when two years of stupid high prices (due to mining) occurs and the Enthusiast crowd gets severely thinned out
as I said, marketing BS. You know, get them salivating for a GPU that costs the price of a still running ok used car
and therein lies a major problem ... no competition but maybe one of these days all the foolish buyers will wake up and stop buying. Then there will be plenty of cards available for miners, oh wait, will they still need GPU's a year from now?
Personally speaking, IMO the pricing is perfectly...
that's where you and I differ ... I take a man at his word until his word becomes a lie then he's shit out of luck far as I'm concerned ,,, it's called integrity and once ya loose it it's gone. He lied about the release price and lied about the release date but I bet in his mind he was just...
