    Everytime I see anything about these cards I can hear my wife in my head saying no. I used to upgrade my PC once or twice a year. These prices are becoming a joke.

    $599 and 8GB VRAM? I can just see where an Ampere Super refresh,or the next generation will see a big improvement....VRAM capacity.

    Yep indeed...it's bonkers. £1049 MSRP for this is a heck of a lot - and scalpers will be charging double that.

    I almost wish that 4k gaming had never been pushed so hard - in reality you don't need these cards for 1080p or 1440p gaming, and both of those resolutions are perfectly fine for pretty much everyone...and we could still be buying (the already expensive) £600 top end cards and be just about content. Even with raytracing on.

    I'm not in the market for a 3080ti, but I will be watching the reddit/twitter show on thursday to see just how quickly they sell out

    Scalpers? AIBs will be charging double that!

    Mass public won't see or be able to get hold of these. They'll be snapped up !

    I saw on facebook this morning in the marketplace someone selling a 1650 nVidia at £450. It's just keeps on getting worse never mind the 3080's I've seen on there for £2000

    Meanwhile the Eth hashrate keeps dropping. Wonder what is happening to all those cards...

    So, are the FE cards LHR as well then, Nvidia did say at one point that no FE cards would be and only be AIB cards that would be..

    When did they say that? I thought Nvidia said new 30 series will be LHR and newly manufactured existing lines will be offered in both flavours; except 3090, which will not be nerfed. All of which was only going to confuse matters further.

    I don't remember them saying that either, as far a I can tell they only mention AIB in so far as their partners would be labelling existing models with the LHR moniker on the box, but all cards made from now on would be limited (except 3090).

    Just what we need when they can't even meet demand, more segmentation.

    Before anyone shouts at me, yes i know these chips wouldn't end up in lower tier cards but it's still frustrating to know they're trying to squeeze more profit out of silicon when it's impossible to get any GPU close to MSRP.

    As noted, it can be interpreted due to the looseness of the terms but it is a signalling that Nvidia may not bother. It'll be quite easy for them to utilise the same silicon with the LHR system with flag=on disabled.

    Not sure why they'd want to though, thorough kick in the teeth to AIBs or maybe because it's so low stock numbers run that it's irrelevant, it won't be enough to make a dent.
