    Vega 56 sold, got just over £475 after fees and postage.

    Now how long it takes to get a replacement... watching the 6700xt launch very closely.

    Re: Predictions on when GPUs will be back at RRP.

    I was curious to see what my Gigabyte model is going for, and just yesterday one apparently sold for £510 + £6 P&P - and that was on a Buy It Now.

    While interesting (yet still crazy), and it certainly offering a nice profit over the £320 (including faster postage) that I originally paid around Black Friday 2018, I have no intention of selling mine.

    Re: Predictions on when GPUs will be back at RRP.

    Seems the trend is upwards across all models, mine is the highest selling powercolor red dragon.

    Seems an air boost went for £525 on the 28th feb.

    Much like the crypto spikes selling a gpu to them is about timing, by all means I may have got £50 more next week or I could have got £50
    less next week, getting a £1 final listing fee promotion helped as the final total would fees would be £50+ normally.

    It seems Ethereum value is on the up again as is the difficulty, where is ends who knows.

    In my case having an R9 290 to put in helped as it isn't a slouch but to buy even on of those now is ridiculous as they are going for £110+.

    I'm still thinking about selling on my 1080Ti as the prices are fairly high. I gave it to the wife but i'm not sure she needs it

    Re: Predictions on when GPUs will be back at RRP.

    Personally, I think it will improve as the availability of GDDR6 RAM improves, but ofc only for the cards that use it (RTX 3070, RTX 3060 TI, Radeon 6000 series etc)

    So, probably in a few more months. AMD said there would be availability problems until later on in 2021.

    Otherwise, GPUs like the RTX 3080/3090 are gonna be really tough to buy (at RRP) for the whole year I think.

    Re: Predictions on when GPUs will be back at RRP.

    Well my plan for a 6700xt didn't work, one can't get one, two don't want one at that price.

    Seems the market as with the the 6700xt and MSI generally doing the same, whatever price they stick on them they will sell so why not charge more and make more money (I don't blame them).

    Interestingly it seems if I held onto my vega56 they have gone up £35-50 on average since I sold (not personally bothered as the £1 ebay fee compared to £50-£60 t would normally be).

    I am watching with interest as I know the bubble with burst and I sold before it burst, but how much more will it inflate?

    In other news I am reasonably happy with my R9 290, happy I figured what was faulty with it (the reason I never sold it), seems the card sags and the graphics corrupt, one empty can of monster propping it up and all is good with the world. I am considering getting an after market cooler for it as the stock reference blower isn't great and it appears it may be staying for a while.

    Prices might go up and come down here and there but ultimately graphical processing power is now it's own separate coin tied somewhat to the value of eth and bitcoin.

    Has bitcoin got anything to do with it now? I would say eth and other alt coins, I guess the value of bitcoin is the driver but surely nobody is mining bitcoin on gpus now?

    If bitcoin goes up, they all go up. Even the joke Dogecoin. There isn't a firm reason for it, people just seem to mentally lump all crypto together and apply "buy" and "sell" sentiments across the board. Quants constantly moving money from one currency to another probably has some tying effect.

    I wouldn't think too hard about it though, cryptocurrency seems more like a religion than a payment system at this point. Just substitute eternally waiting for Eth2.0 for waiting for your reward in heaven, and where you expect to talk about free will in relation to evil just slap in decentralisation. People who do not believe the power of ERC20 must be converted. But hey, a religion where the zealots can get rich quick will have some pull. Have you heard the good news? With crypto we are making the world a better place! Mark my words, they'll be knocking on the bloody door next

    Six months and counting beggars belief really

    Still no RTX-30xx cards for sale. Price gouging/scraping how long can it take Nvidia to sort the supply issue out? Can't even find any RTX-20xx for sale.

    AMD 6700/6800 just as bad.

    Re: Predictions on when GPUs will be back at RRP.

    Around July there will be major changes to how Ethereum rewards miners, and rewards will fall. Expect at least some graphics cards to hit the second hand market then at better prices, perhaps approaching MSRP soon as the mining return could up to halve depending on how the crypto market is in July (no guesses here).

    Or like when Bitcoin went ASIC they could just switch to something else. Raven seems quite trendy atm.

    Re: Predictions on when GPUs will be back at RRP.

    It does seem there is bubbles which effect.

    Sold my 290x(s) in a mining boom
    Sold my RX580 in a mining boom
    Sold my Vega 56 in a mining boom

    In each case I got a card at retail outside the boom or preordering on amazon etc.

    I will say this boom does seem bigger, with the 290x and RX580 I basically used for years and then sold for £20-£40 more (even breaking even after years is good), but the vega56 is over twice what I paid for it.

    Interestingly I occasionally spec/build Pcs for people I the last one I did was mid November 2020 and I put a new 5600xt in the for £235, with hindsight I should have bought 10 of them.

    Re: Predictions on when GPUs will be back at RRP.

    I feel so silly for selling my Vega 56 for "only" 250 in early Feb. Seeing reports here of returns of almost double that. Paid 380 UKP for it on release.
    But, if I never sold it, I wouldn't have got my new GPU as I wouldn't have been so motivated to watch the release tweets.

    I doubt the price will be back to normal this year, I think it will keep going for next few years
