Wow, 1080s just barely a year old and they come out with this. Talking about catering to the crypto morons.

No, it's almost three years old. By the time we actually see any 2080/1180 cards, most likely over three years old, 34-35 months if they actually hit April which I doubt.

Whether that has anything at all to do with crypto currency is just speculative. Typically Nvida just does its own thing. It's not like AMD has made anything competitive in the higher end market in years. Vega 64, yeah, but that was just GTX 1080 performance with more noise, more heat, and GTX 1080 Ti pricing after AMD's pricing scam. The only reason to buy a Vega 64 over a 1080 was your monitor.

It hasn't even been 2. 1080 was release May of 2016. It's hard to gerrt excited about new graphic cards given the supply problems.

I'm hoping production can be ramped up to the point that it brings some sanity back to the market, but I doubt it.

A little cousin of mine just ordered parts for her first custom PC. A 1060 was pushing $400. That's insane to me. I bought a GTX 960 a couple years back for $200. 16GB of DDR4 is going for a little under $200. I got 32GB for under $250 back in 2013. The rig came out around $1,500.

I wanted to upgrade from my 960, but I bought a One X. It's good enough for now.

yea my local fys just got in some 1060s and put up cards in place. So they can better manage them. Manger said he got 1080s and 70s coming in next week but those been already sold. So its matter of friends selling for friends to get around the one per person orders. Supply is keeping up, its just crypo horders buying them in bulk and hoping to cap on the market and resell them at higher prices. Smart but stupid as it inflates the market even more then it is. puts PC users out of the curb because some jkas wants to mine an over inflated fake market.
