2080Ti is not very popular where I live

    I live in Sweden which is a high income country, so most people can afford 2080Ti.

    We have in stock mainly Palit cards which aren't bad but they are no Asus/MSI/EVGA.

    There are no other cards in stock and these are not selling very well.
    The price isn't jacked up. It's about $1300 for the cheapest one (computer parts in Sweden are pretty much always more expensive than in the US).

    The cheapest one has been in stock for about a week now and have only sold 10.
    Maybe people are holding off for Strix equivalent cards, but the price for those are already out and they are around $1550 which is quite a bit higher.

    Or maybe the 2080ti is one of the worst values the enthusiast GPU market has seen since.... ever?

    The halo card is never a good value from a price/performance perspective.

    Obviously but even with that in mind the 2080ti is especially bad. If it had released in the same price slot as the 1080ti is replaced then we wouldn't be having this conversation. Instead they damn near doubled it.

    Yeah but the cost of materials is much higher, plus DLSS and RTX features are soon to make it worth much, much more!

    The BOM cost is too high to try and sell at the 1080Ti price level. That was never going to happen.

    With that said I'm going to bail from the thread. This has been beat to death.

    Really doubt it. The problem is that RTX games aren't even launched yet and most of them that will be released don't actually do Ray Tracing, they only do DLSS which is just a fancy type of anti-aliasing off-loaded specifically to the video card.

    The value of the RTX series can only go down. I'm going to wait for the 30 series. The hardware crashing, bsod, ctd, stuck frequency and all that on a video card is terrible. If you read the hard forum poll, about 30% of users have issues with their 20 series card. That's a huge chunk.

    For that much money, why buy buggy hardware unless you are gaming at 4k?

    NVidia are putting people I know off PC gaming.
    Nobody has bought or intends to get one of this gen cards.
    I would have bought this gen if the price wasnt fkd, I have a buyer for my 1080ti.
    Poor him unfortunately.
    Lucky my new TV does 1440p 120Hz and looks great! So I can last for some time yet.

    I dodged a bullet by not wanting to be ripped off.
    Glorious show NVidia.

    Remember back in the good old days when high end GPUs were under $500? Good times, good times.

    Nvidia needs to realize, a shit ton of their target audience (gamers) for their gaming series cards are kids.... who I would imagine do not have $1000+ to blow on a gpu.

    If it wasn't for the fact that a lot of machine learning libraries use CUDA for GPU compute, I wouldn't purchase another nvidia gpu for gaming until they come back with reasonable prices.

    Why would it cost the same as a 1080Ti if it has Titan level performance?

    Go buy an AMD card.
    Most people play at 1080p anyway so, there are TONS of choices for cards that cater to 1080p. No one is forcing you to buy the top end. The fastest, the newest are always the most expensive.

    Don’t like it? Don’t buy it. Titans were never cost effective solutions either, yet you didn’t see this outcry over them...

    12 to 1500 usd for a ot een professional level card is retarded. I'm glad these are blowing up because they are a RIP off.
