I've placed an order with Infinite Computing who will let you join their backorder list. It's going to be a couple of months I suspect until I get to the front of the queue, but it takes the stress out of it and means you've got a guaranteed card at some point. I'm also then looking when I can for a stock drop that isn't with one of the suppliers trying to ruthlessly scalp everyone by charging double or triple the RRP.

Given the current silicon shortage, I strongly suspect that your existing card will maintain reasonable value for most of the year.
Yeah I suspect so, just bugs me as thats the final step for my rig, VR headset is on the list but I dont want to bite the bullet until I know the difference between the 3080 and the 3090.

Reviews are in 3080 Ti is a rip off.

Basically the Ti is 71% more expensive than the 3080 (at MRSP prices) with less than 10% the performance boost.

Alternatively it's 95% of a 3090 at 4K or below, at about 75% of the price. Nobody buys a flagship card because it's good value for money- exactly the same was true of previous generation cards to varying degrees.

What if someone who owns a 3080 they could sell 2nd hand and get a 3080Ti for the same price?

similar to 3080 vs 3090. For gaming it was something like 7% increase in fps vs + 100% cost. Though the card did have other benefits over 3080 due to vram etc.

I still think if I am going to be able to choose (much chance), ill take 3090.

There's also the question of how cards hold up over time. The 2080ti was a poor deal at 50% price increase for 10% additional performance over a 2080 at released, but they now routinely top 30% faster in new titles with Ray Tracing and even more at 4K+.

Might try and nab a 3080ti today if by any remote chance there is an opportunity - step down in mining but if its near 3090 would satisfy my itch for a while.

Mayhem.....refreshing them all.

Finally got a 3070. So my old card is straight on Ebay to see what craziness it makes.

Agreed - the 2080ti is a great card. Very fast and only looks silly price wise compared to a rrp fe 3080 or rrp fe 3070. Both of which seem impossible enough to get.

Use the Telegram app/PC Desktop prog and join the FE PartAlert set notifications on. You can get Telegram for desktop off the site, don't use the Windows store version.

They post a link straight to it, you can't find it on the website, you have to go via Nvidia's shop this takes less time.

Don't give up, I did, then 10 minutes after the drop I tried the link again and the green button to add to basket was there. Where it had previously been missing with the price shown, or out of stock.

The green buy button can come and go for quite a while after the initial notification. It's also worth checking until the next morning as some orders will be cancelled and the stock released back for sale. Refresh the page often and hope you get lucky!

It's a ripoff compared to the 3080 'official' price - which is nearly impossible to get at that official price.

In terms of real world prices that people will pay to get cards, 3080s go for anything up to £1800 on eBay at the moment and even if you can source an AIB 3080 model from a reputable retailer (they sell out immediately) you are looking at around £800 or more usually so the official £1049 price for the 3080Ti is certainly within what people will pay.

Of course, that is moot and the 3080Ti will likely go for around £2k when it hits eBay. NVidia are just cashing in on the fact that their cards are selling for way more than they officially priced the first wave at and now they are getting their cut.

The world has gone completely bonkers. I just saw a couple of RTX 3070 cards become available on overclockers at £5k each!!
