    Re: Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3070 Gaming OC

    Why do the tech press insist on quoting MRSP regarding the Ampere cards? NO ONE has actually been able to buy one at that price.
    Nvidia are permanently OUT OF STOCK at that price.
    Just like the Intel 10900k at its supposed £485 MRSP.
    The tech press need to hold these companies to account over this, instead of blithely repeating marketing guff.

    Another paper launch with unicorn pricing.

    CCL probably have the last remaining GTX 3070 in stock (Palit Gaming Pro for £519.99)

    I agree, competition create a better product?

    Just "release" a product which comes close, hoping to damage the impact of their product.

    The problem is fanboys defending anti-consumer practices (usually with their wallets too) and the relevant bodies usually not having the powers or interest to intervene (in this case they likely haven't broken any laws per say)

    Re: Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3070 Gaming OC

    I'm interested in the Gigabyte Eagle card, as it's the only one that fits in 2 expansion slots. The actual differences are hard to spot due to marketing BS from manufacturers. And review sites are never interested in / get given lower end SKUs.

    I agree too, Overclockers have this listed on Pre-Order for £589.99, thats a £50 scalp. To give them a little credit Scan have it at £574.99 Pre-Order

    Re: Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3070 Gaming OC

    The only pricing we have to go on is what the manufacturer sends over to us. That is usually bang on the money, but that's not the case with RTX 30-series cards.

    Our plan was always to update the conclusion when some real-world pricing surfaced, which it has, so we do now make note of the £575 pre-order gouging. Let's hope AMD's partners can do better.

    Re: Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3070 Gaming OC

    OK, I'm the stupid one here, but on the first page:

    "Gigabyte drops the second HDMI 2.1 present on the RTX 3090 card, so you're left with a single HDMI and three DisplayPort.

    There's quite definitely two HDMI ports and two DisplayPorts. I think the sentence needs to be rejigged to indicate one HDMI is 2.1 and one HDMI is 2.0 (? I guess, I don't really know what spec it is).
    If the Earth is a sphere how do you travel to the ends of it?

    You are right. I wrote it the other way around. It's DP that's dropped from RTX 3090. Fixed, thanks.

    Re: Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3070 Gaming OC

    I'm properly disappointed with the AMD 6000 announcement, more precisley their pricing. Gone are the days where competition means better pricing it seems to me.

    Yeah the 3070 is great value if you compare it to the 2080ti, but its not a replacement for that card is it. We're getting gouged even at MSRP.

    5-600 for mid range cards? Madness I tell ye.

    I was planning on upgrading but I'm not sure I'll bother.

    Re: Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3070 Gaming OC

    Where are you seeing an issue with the AMD cards?
    Performance is there, and they have 16Gb on them soooo..

    Granted, if you cant buy either card, whats the point in any of it...

    the issue is both companies selling mid range cards at 600£, few years ago was 450£ (1070), before it was 300£ for 970... so give it about 2 years the price increases 100+£ instead of reasonable ammount

    Adjust for inflation, I wish I could still stick to my old max spend of £250 on a GPU, those days are long gone, as has my Geforce 256DDR...

    Re: Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3070 Gaming OC

    Technology has given us an expectation of getting more for the same money, but in many other fields that's not the case - if you want more, you pay more.

    If they kept selling all the old graphics cards and just asked us to pay relative to the performance (of say your old Geforce 256) then cards would be tens of thousands of pounds!
