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

    This is a bit like reading tealeaves but this boom crypto boom has been going string for a while now, I think by the autumn we will have had another bust so maybe some good black Friday deals.

    I doubt they will ever return to MSRP. Even the 20 series launch cards went much smoothly, and after a few months, their prices for AIBs were always 10-20% above initial launch price

    I don't think prices will be back to "normal" for a while if ever for this generation. In the previous crypto boom there wasn't an unprecedented silicon shottage as well as a pandemic causing shipping times and prices to skyrocket.

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

    I honestly think they will be back at RRP by early next year. By then ETH will have gone proof of stake and enough gamers will have bought cards to reduce demand.

    Well it seems the 6700xt is now available to buy at retailers, just the price gouging to drop now.

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

    Whenever the RRPs are inflated to match demand. Do probably the launch of the geforce 4000 series and rx7000 series.

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

    Well as they aren't all selling out it would seem the demand isn't there at those prices.

    By definition if they come back to msrp I would have swapped a vega 56 for a 6700xt for free or very little cost.

    Still my R9 290 is doing fine so no rush.

    When miners eff off it will improve. But as Nvidia showed with Turing after the last mining craze,it could mean the newer GPU SKUs are prescalped.

    They'll shoot themselves in the foot if so and end up with unsold stock.

    I hope so,but I can't say if any degree of commonsense exists in the market anymore. Its a good thing I still like playing older games TBF!

    While we would think so, what the GPU shortage (and console shortage etc.) has shown is that there are plenty of people willing to pay scalpers just was previously there was plenty willing to pay inflated prices for Titans "because they are worth it"?

    Since millions of gamers have managed to get their hands on 3000 GPUs (from the Steam survey, plus the JPR story) and millions have been able to console, that the shortages are not just due to mining. Having said that, there's ETH network hashrate chart thing
    https://2miners.com/eth-network-hashrate
    And since Sept it has gone from 220,000,000 MH/s to 560,000,000 MH/s. Since a 3060Ti does about 60ish, that's currently equiv. to almost 10 million 3060Ti, or the increase since Sept is about equiv. to 6 million 3060Ti GPUs.

    Well mostly instead because there's a shortage compared to demand. My comment was talking about a post-shortage situation like last time. But I see what you mean - yes, if nVidia decide to massively increase prices then I'm sure there will still be a few people who buy them, I just don't think the majority will.

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

    Slowly seeing stock appear, I still think a big reason is miners who have inflated value on their coins are happy to keep paying over the odds/scalpers. Starting to see complaints about the lower hash rates on new GPUs from Nvidia, whether or not they'll be an easy bios fix remains to be seen.

    I think what's frustrating is I've seen around 100 cards (also including 1650/1660 super) in the last 3 weeks from Currys/Ebuyer mostly go to scalpers, frustrating.

    What's 6700xt rrp? I keep seeing no one buying them when they are priced at 650-750.

    IIRC it was meant to be £420 for the RX6700XT. You can get hold of the GTX1650 GDDR6 now from a few retailers from £210 onwards.

    I am happy to pay around £450 or a little more depending on the model.

    Seems they still aren't telling at the £750-800, many retailers now showing stock.

    Isn't the 6700xt not the best for mining due to the design ie the 5700xt is better? this may be helping things.
