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

    30 minutes, that not bad going tbh...

    No FE drops in the UK for a while, I am due away again from Friday so get ready guys as there's often drops when I'm out of the country lol..

    I managed to get a 3060Ti when they launched, then sold it to a mate for £300 as I was building a PC for one of his kids, he gave me £350 for it AND ordered me a 3080FE so I managed to get the 3080FE I wanted to start with defore Scan changed the rules, and gave him the difference, its getting damned tempting to sell the 3080FE but with things how they are I could easily sell the card but then not be able to replace it, and given I'm not travelling as much now (trip out for 2 weeks from Friday and then 2 weeks just before Christmas) I'm getting a bit more time in front of the PC so makes less sense, see how much more they go up and now much more the temptation rises before all these new cards land..

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

    My guess is that it will be years. For those paying attention to worldwide shipping problems, the Air Freight rate for HKG-US hit a new high in September at $9.74/kg. This compares for $5.26 last year and $3.44 in 2019. Inflation is here, and the first signs of the economic disaster that we were warned about last year. What do you think that will do to the Crypto market, as faith in national currencies is reduced?

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

    both scan and ebuyer had some at £299.99, eitherway gone now and I decided not to bother as I couldn't send the message £300 for a lower midrange card is ok.

    The R9 290 lives on

    I noticed there hadn't been any FE drops in a while and below is only a rumour so it take it with a pinch of salt.

    The only thing I would say about that rumour is that what Nvidia really want is the max profits to them. Currently AIBs, distributors and retailers are scalping and *poor* Nvidia aren't getting that extra cash.

    So while Nvidia longer-term they don't want to kill the golden gamer GPU goose, longer term is mostly alien thinking, so while obviously Nvidia want to re-engineer MSRP so that they get the majority of any extra profit, in the short term at least.

    Well, maybe, but nVidia don't need to 'engineer' MSRP to do that. Arguably, it's in their interests not to. They just need to increase prices to their board partners. nVidia profits go up, board partner prices go down, and the board partners carry the heat for real-world price levels because contracts prevent them disclosing their cost price, even if commercial sensitivities didn't.

    eBuyer are doing an MSRP roulette on the 3070Ti for 18 people who don't mind signing their life away to Gleam:

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

    Well CEX must know something... and it's not good

    There is no official price tracker for them (AFAIK), but I've been procrastinating swapping my very slow Radeon 260X 1GB (£21 in voucher!) for a 1050 2GB. Those have moved since I first though of it: £90, then £95 last week, and £100 just now. I'm sure others have moved too (last week a lot cards moved +£10) but that one struck me.


    970 4GB (well 3.5GB) went from £145, to £150 to £160, 1060 6GB went from £245 to £255 recently. To think I sold mine for under £100 last autumn hoping to buy back in later
