Everyone is getting excited for the $2000 4080 you can't find in stores for a year.
It may be "worth it" to you but not remotely close for me and countless other casual gamers (about 65% of computers on the Steam survey have an RTX3050 equivalent or slower GPU) who just want something they can throw in their their PC to get their occasional gaming done.3060 12GB at $400. is worth it. Let alone at $300. lol 570?
Depends on how desperate the supply chain gets with getting rid of old stock. From what I have heard, this first round of official price cuts is just AMD and Nvidia getting ahead of the used GPU flood. Once all of the retired APAC mining cards hit global markets by the millions, the bottom will fall off of used GPU prices and retail will get squeezed. Better try to clear excess inventory of higher-end parts now at still ~100% gross margins instead of 200-400% than wait and struggle to clear inventory while eating losses like last time.HARD PASS on soon to be obsolete hardware. You get the most value by buying close to the launch, not buying the day before it is obsolete.

Give it a little more time, the retired mining GPU flood hasn't landed yet. The first round of cuts is to screw high-end buyers where the margin massacre will hit hardest. The cuts will work themselves down the product stack. AMD and Nvidia make no profit from second-hand sales and no-sales due to being priced out of the remaining market. They need to score those sales while they still can.Nvidia only dropped the prices on the top 3 cards.
Was forced to wait 22 months to get retail pricing so far and we are 2 months away from the release of the next generation which in all likelihood will come in around similar prices and give upwards of 50% more performance. HARD PASS on soon to be obsolete hardware. You get the most value by buying close to the launch, not buying the day before it is obsolete.
Something tells me the crypto-mining crash bringing the pricing house of card down is going to temper the manufacturers' ambitions a bit, as does massive inflation on daily necessities taking away normal people's disposable income.Just wait to see next gen to cost 50% more than these...
