More marketing nonsense. Of course!

"NVIDIA has refined the quality of ray tracing and feature sets such as DLSS and in several titles while AMD's first show in the ray-tracing era has yet to be publicly demonstrated.

NVIDIA states that notebook gaming is one of the fastest-growing markets and is even growing at a faster rate than the desktop segment. Jensen stated that there are currently a total of 200 million active gamers around the globe who are running NVIDIA GeForce GPUs, & while most of them are desktop users, the notebook segment is increasing every day."

It's almost laughable how we see the same old crowd and familiar faces upvoting/"liking" what they want to see.

Right. When you can buy both new consoles and still have several hundred left to get a few games versus one 2080 Ti, well... I don't know what to say.

$500 console with an APU more powerful than 2070 vs max q laptop with 2080 that costs $2000. Hmm..
The performance of the next gen consoles are looking like a retarded Ryzen 3700 missing L3 cache with 64 compute core GPU with 12 Tflops of FP32. At least according to the rumors. So my belief is a RTX 2060 with basically any Ryzen 6 or 8 core CPU will be equal to the next gen consoles. Don't let this stop Nvidia from lowering prices because people will buy these consoles with the current pricing of GPU's from both Nvidia and AMD. Honestly the RX 5700 should have been a $250 GPU, and according to PCPartPicker.com they're a good $50 away from reaching that price.

I guess we'll see which rumors are right about performance. But nonetheless they are a huge step up from what's available now and we all know they probably will fall into the $500 range which is really good for that level of performance. Current gen cards are a rip off but at least AMD is a bit closer to reality now with their pricing. I honestly was going to wait till Ampere released sine I've already waited a year but the itch got so bad that I found some guy on Craiglist today that was selling a brand new ROG Strix 2080 Ti and I convinced him to give it to me for $800..I'd say I got a fucking great deal considering it's brand new:

I would NEVER pay the retail for this card which is something absurd like $1280 + tax on Amazon right now.

Why would someone be stupid enough to sell you a "brand new" 2080 ti that goes for nearly $1400 with tax for only $800? There has to be way more to that story...

That's more cu and fp32 performance than the 5700xt which > 2070, how are you predicting 2060 performance?

Dude had a bad run of luck lately. He drove his car into a flooded road and screwed his engine up. I thought he might be some shady dude trying to pull a fast one but he was your typical computer nerd when I met up with him at Starbucks. I just got done ordering the WB + backplate for it:

Next-gen consoles showing some really nice visuals would be great and maybe even have a bigger effect on Nvidia than AMD.
Why buy a $1500-2000 video card when you can buy a $500 console which has better graphics?

The answer to that is simple for me: Ability to upgrade, 240 hz monitor, Steam, Origin, cheaper games, Xbox games already on PC and with better game sales and most importantly of all, mouse and keyboard support and not being walled in.

Consoles unfortunately will always have a place but from what I see, MS and Sony will be shifting away from selling hardware only to a more hybrid approach like Stadia in the future. It's why Sony has already partnered with MS for Azure so the future of consoles will be even more tied to the PC than the other way around.

Well it's brand new... so they probably stole it, maybe a porch pirate, not sure if some place like Fry's wouldn't have these cards behind a bullet proof glass case considering the cost so no 5-finger discounts, but who knows... maybe some stores are stupid. But yeah that card is as hot as the price he got it for.

Out of curiosity I know video cards prices kind of spiked when there was a mad dash to mine with them so demand well outstripped supply as a result Nvidia and AMD could charge more for their cards, or more to the point resellers could charge more. However it seems like prices never corrected themselves, I don't think the demand to mine with these cards is as large is it? or is it still going crazy? Either way, used to be when next gen cards came out you could get a generation older for a considerable discount, and 2 generations older for practically dirt cheap. But still looking out there 1000 series cards are still expensive as fuckall, and hell the 900 series cards are still way too fucking expensive, I mean hell looking at the 970 gtx I have, I see it's still going for over $400, and I didn't pay that when I got it new almost 4 years ago. So the greed of some people? Trying to milk what they can out of it?

You can't adjust settings on alot of consoles games so you are stuck with fixed FOV and fixed graphics settings.
If consoles could change that it would be great and a better user experience for gamers.
Also Windows based games run windows in the background on top of the launcher while consoles can bypass it.

You would think so but he showed me his Amazon order and he still had his brand new AW monitor in his trunk hoping id buy it.

They said in the past Windows PCs are gimped by the OS because it hogs resouces but with modern PCs I don't know if this is really a problem with more memory and faster components.. Consoles are streamlined to just have the basics to run the game kinda like the Linux of PCs.

Yeah being stuck on whatever performance and settings they give you kind of sucks. Some games have some absolutely horrible looking effects such as the screen space reflections in Resident Evil 2 and as far as I know you can't adjust that. And there are too many games that end up in no man's land as far as performance goes.

Showed you on a phone/screen? Or the print out in the box that he stole from some dude apparently building a new system? :D

But I stand corrected. I still wouldn't pay $800 for video card either, that shit is just way out there. Prices are supposed to go down as technology advances, not go up!

Phone/screen lol. When i was making the deal over txt w/him, I was sketched out thinking he might try to rob me so I had him send me his parts list before i saw the emailed receipt in person. $800 is the most I'd pay though I think a 2080 Ti shouldn't cost more than $700 new but we have a ton of people willing to pay $1200+ these days and NVIDIA knows it (so does AMD). I don't think we'll see prices drop down to normal levels again for top cards.

It wasn't Nvidia and AMD that was spiking the prices then. It was the retailers. Where do you see 970s going for $400? They hang around the use market for $100. If you looking at new prices then yes they stay up there at some places and only a dumb ass would pay that for a 970.

Yes new prices, I get you can get used cards for real cheap, but my point is new cards used to be significantly cheaper if they're 2 generations old i.e. 680 was much cheaper than 880, even 780s were cheaper the only real difference was when the Ti and "Super" (or whatever adjective) variants came out it tended to keep prices higher but still not as high as the current gen, and the new price for the card is more expensive than the new price I paid 4 years ago which I bought new right after the Kepler(?) chipset was launched (1000 series) and I did it because the 970 dropped in price as a result.

And yeah, you'd be dumb to pay $400+ for a 970, when you can get a 1070 for about the same price, or hell the 2070 isn't that much more (a tad more) which is half the point I'm getting across, why the fuck are these cards still so expensive? Retailer greed I guess? You see Evga B-stock still selling for close to MSRP which is fucking retarded.

Please explain more about this.

Screw the article.
Well, young Neetoz'd, wetness is not actually a function of water, but a function of the brain's interpretation of sensations on our skin! In truth, there is no 'wetness', but a blanket perception of change in temperature that is accompanied by a lack of pressure. Wetness is further enhanced by your body's awareness of the effect the body's own temperature has on the overall change in temperature!

You can read more about it here! Good luck, young Explorer!

$500 console with an APU more powerful than 2070 vs max q laptop with 2080 that costs $2000. Hmm..

Not really. AMD has yet to comment on just how much hardware acceleration we will see in Navi 20. Could be as low as the 1660 Ti (simultaneous int+FPU should be fairly easy). Cold be closer to the RTX (RT + Tensor), but I'm not holding my breath.

Only shader flops are known. Everything else is just a wild guess.

Also, pretending that RTX performance/dollar won't rise considerably with the release of Ampere is just telling us you're not thinking at all. Because obviously, NVIDIA has nothing in the pipeline to shake-down the already two-years late AMD to RTX, and obviously it's going to just bowl over everything:rolleyes:

great price, for a card that doesn't transfer warranty from the original owner
