WOW is all i can say. never seen such drops but perfectly understandable considering what the 3000 series is supposed to perform as at decent prices.

the 3090 will still be stupid expensive but the lower cards seem like they are gonna have to drop a lot to compete with AMD's pricing. and of course they are this time around.

3 CHEERS FOR COMPETITION!!!

Just wonder how much was the profit for a 2080ti if they can still offer 50% discount. Also it gonna be tough for AMD to positioning with those price points, right now 5700x lose all its appealing

I'd imagine no profit - likely a loss. Trying to cut costs. If by some miracle they aren't losing money, it;ll be right on the edge.

Makes owning a 2080 Ti feel pretty bad.

I imagine there has to be a 3080 Ti in the works though, 3000-series pricing makes no sense otherwise. The 3090 is too much of a price hike over the 2080 Ti, but there's no reason Nvidia would send 2080 Ti users "down" to the 3080 when another card could be priced between those two options.

I'm sure there will be. The logic I've heard for this though is that people who can afford a >$1200 GPU will generally pony up for a 3090.

Doesn't have to be any profit margin. It's a loss limiter sale. If your $1000 inventory is about to eclipsed by a $500 product. You sell at $500 loss and still make $500, vs stock you can't sell in 2 months.

If you can get RTX 2080 ti for $500 it is a better card than RTX 3070 .. because it has 11GB VRAM VS 8GB only. Plus it supports SLI .
What I've read says that's basically an even match. slightly faster witht he 3070 but an older CPU would limit it. Finally, the 2080 ti is available now. The 3070 won't be for a month or two.

If (new) bleeding edge isn't that important, bird in the hand seems the choice here

8GB of VRAM will make many games crash in Ultra setting and 4K ... COD warzone already uses >10GB VRAM ... RTX3070 with 8GB only is not a good choice at all if you want to game on 4K , even in 1440P it consumes 9GB VRAM , I dont understand how on earth Nvidia released the RTX 3070 with only 8GB VRAM ... while it is aimed at 4K/1440P gaming.

I wouldn't be surprised to find out Nvidia is giving them some sort of credit towards a series 30 card for each series 20 they discount ..... Maybe split the difference for instance if it had a $100 markup they'll still make $50 after the credit is applied ...... Nvidia doesn't want their partners losing money

The only real advantage I can see for the 3070 is two things: a FE card might potentially be cooled really well, ray-tracing should be useable with it (though that isn't that important", and that there may be some things in the future that only work with the 3000 series. EG, a possible DLSS 3.0, or future versions of say, RTX Broadcast/Voice.

As always, newer architectures will age better over time. It may be an even match at launch, but a year or 2 from now, there should be an advantage for the 3070. Ray tracing should be faster out of the gate for the 3070, and if you plan to do any compute tasks like folding, the 3070 should be more efficient.
