Does that mean people should be giving their 1070s and below away?
Yeah, that's why I'm mulling over selling mine at all, or at least waiting until after they launch. I suspect most people just heard Jensen say 3070 beats 2080ti for 499 but a) we haven't seen actual fps numbers, and b) as you said supply issues may make things a paper launch for a few months so I could wait it out.
On the flip side, when reviewers do post benchmarks, it could make that 3070 beating 2080ti performance a big reality in which case my card's value might tank even more regardless if it's a paper launch.
If those are local offers I would definitely take it without thinking twice, but if you have to deal with fees or returns when they see the numbers that show up online before they possible even get the card in hand it becomes a hard decision for me.I"m getting offer's of 650-700 so I may bite. Sucks, but I don't think anyone expected nvidia to price so low and offer the performance they claim. So if I get 650, that'll pretty much cover a large majority of the cost towards a 3080.

Yeah, local deal. Was offered 650usd, so I think I may take it. I honestly think the prices will tank a little more once benchmarks are released, and while it's possible prices may hold or go slightly up due to demand or supply issues, I'd rather not take that risk.
Although I would normally say jumping from the previous generation to the current generation does not always make sense, especially if the 2080 ti is still running all the games smoothly for you, in this case the performance leap would probably be too great not to do so because if you add a bit extra you can get the 3080 and skip the next generation.
So do it at $650, if the buyer shows up.
Catching a falling knife. I think $650 is at the handle. Wait until benchmarks come out and you will catch the blade.Yeah, local deal. Was offered 650usd, so I think I may take it.

It is what it is, nobody expected nvidia to price so low. When I bought my 2080ti back in late spring (for 1300 usd) I fully expected to take a loss when selling it, but I figured I could get $7-800 for it, and I probably could have had I posted it over the weekend. On one hand it feels like an insult getting offers in the $400-500 range, a few offering 600, but I get it. Why would anyone buy my card for over 5-600 when the 3070 is touting greater 2080ti level performance.
And... I feel like the re-sale value of the 2080ti will only drop a little more once all the reviewers post the FPS numbers, since at least right now while places like DF can show performance, NVIDIA has blocked them from showing the actual FPS.
Take the $600 and run. Even if the 3070 is slightly slower than a 2080ti why would anyone pay even $500 for a used card when they can buy a new 3070 for the same price? Lets also say the 2080ti is 15% faster than a 3070, why wouldnt someone buy a 3080 @$700? Newest tech, new warranty etc. The 3080 @ $700 is really the back breaker
Until very recently the 1080ti averaged over $440 for sale on eBay completed listings. It launched at $600. It says hi.The more you wait, the more cards will be available for sale but the demand will not increase... this will drive down prices over time. This will be especially true when folks will get their hands on the 3000 series and dump their old cards at the same time.
In my area, one week ago, there was one 2080 Ti for sale on Kijiji... now there are 10... this number can only grow as folks get informed on the 3000s.
In my area, folks are asking $1000-$1200... If I was one of them, I would lower my price to $900 + negotiable... which would look like a great deal for someone that is not well informed on the upcoming series... or absolutely need a good card now.
Advice needed here.
I got *four* 2060 Supers (deep learning research), purchased 6 months ago (370 bucks each), blower design, perfect conditions. How much can I ask for each of them?
My point is about the 2080 Ti, not the 1080 ti... not sure why the 1080 Ti is relevant here??Until very recently the 1080ti averaged over $440 for sale on eBay completed listings. It launched at $600. It says hi.
Where did you get the cards for those prices? Sounds a little low for me. But if you did get them for this price it was an amazing deal.Here’s my $.02 looking at it from the not hardcore enthusiast side.
If your on a 1080p monitor the 3070/3080 is total overkill and most people still play on 1080p. Out of 20 of my discord friends 2 play at 4k 60, 5 of us 1440p 144hz then the rest are 1080p 144hz. Most of them use what I would consider shit cards, rx570/580. I had 2060 super my buddy 2080ti, one other guy a 2070 and the rest were on gtx 1060 6gb cards.
A 2080ti for $350 at 1080p 144fps is a good deal, especially for esports games and those are the most popular played games out right now. It will run those no problem for a few years just fine if I had to guess. Not too mention most people are on a budget and can’t afford to drop $700 on a 3080
These new cards are marketed towards 4k gaming, I could care less about 4k since the good monitors are expensive and I’m not willing to fork out the cash for 4k 120/144hz and 4k 60 is a no go after using 144hz for years.
I currently use a 1440p 144hz monitor. I bought a 2080ti for $350, I was using a 2060 super that I sold for what I paid for it. I play DBD, cod, bf5, the golf club and siege. My framerate went thru the roof in these games and for the price I got it for I feel like it’s a good deal. The card was 3 months old, I bought it from a friend and it has a ton of warranty left on it. I had $800 put to the side for a gpu upgrade but I really didn’t need it. The 2060 super played my games just fine. I put the $450 I saved up in a can that I’m gonna use to upgrade my whole pc to the next socket change
Im building a pc for my friend to get into pc gaming and away from consoles. He has a 1080p 144hz monitor and I know he won’t upgrade it. I got him a rtx 2080 super for $275 that has over 2 years warranty left. Once again totally worth it. He’ll be happy as a pig n shit when he sees what 144 Fps is like compared to using a ps4 slim to play games
Not everyone needs to go balls to the wall and that’s how most people are. Seeing 2080ti cards for $400 is great to them as it’s more power then they can probably even notice on a 1080p monitor.
I get where you guys are coming from but honestly most people have shit computers and this price drop will be amazing for them to upgrade to a used card that shits on what they currently have and not have to spend a ton of money in the process. I feel bad for the guys that bought 2080ti cards for $1k or more. Your taking a serious beating right now.

AMD does not have anything to match this is my guess. They are going to need to play price games to compete. To me the 3070ti looks to be the sweet spot depending on priceImho the prices are reasonable which makes me think AMD has something competitive coming out as well. Nvidia wouldn't leave a dollar on the table if they didn't have to.
