    A 2080ti at this price would be tempting

    • +9

      I will wait for 3000 series for the same price

      • +2

        3700 should be at that price

      • +2

        But the 2080ti doubles as a heater

    • +1

      will wait for 3000 series for better performance

  • Lol it’s getting cheaper!
    They start clearing stock space for new 3000

    • +1

      Lol it's not about space

  • +26

    I’m here for the negs!

    • +14

      I'm here to reply to comments of people who are here for the negs.

      • +7

        I'm just here to neg and find bargains. I'm all out of negs :(

        • -1

          And I'm here to neg.

        • +18

          You shouldn't have put all your negs in the one basket.

        • +2

          That bible deal! Now I can't neg anything!

        • "I'm all out of negs, I'm so lost without you.."

          Air supply

      • i'm here to observe negs

    • +3

      inb4 negs because it should be $600. One person even thought $400!

  • +7

    There are so many of these deals and even cheaper on ebay used. Really no point in posting these deals.. too many.

    Best to have patience. Wait for the prices and verdict on 3000 and prices of 2000 will keep getting cheaper.

    • +5

      Having patience didn't work out so well for another popular release, the Ryzen 3 3300x.

      When benchmarks showed it as as fast as the Ryzen 5 3600 (then AUD $300) in games (sometimes a tad faster) for only $220 AUD RRP, it sold out so fast that the only places with stock were the ones who had it for over $260 for a while.

      So fears that a hugely hyped release like the GTX 3070 may not be available as cheap as we were told due to being sold out are certainly not to be dismissed.

      • +2

        I'm not looking forward to trying to buy a 3080.
        It took months to get a pair of 1080s and the 1000 series was not as hyped as the 3000 series.

        • Looking at getting the FE or AIB?

          • -1

            @IJustKnowStuff: FE has been confirmed as not available in Australia - please see my post on the previous 2080ti deal.

            • @aaronmr: FYI NVIDIA changed their mind and the Founders Edition of each card is available in Australia exclusively through Mwave. The prices were maintained from the Aus NVIDIA site. They are deciding who gets to buy them by raffle for fairness (you can sign up on their website now). I don't think they have a lot of stock though. It's not ideal, but at least there is an option now if you really were hell bent on getting one, and you get an Australian warranty to boot.

              The raffle closes 2PM AEST September 18, 2020 for the 3080.

              Edit: added raffle closing info.
              2nd edit: I'm dumb, sorry to reply to an old comment, you probably already know this. I'll leave the info here in case someone reads through the comments like I did.

          • @IJustKnowStuff: Not sure at this point. I'd like to see what the AIBs come out with and how they perform.

      • surely they'll make enough to satisfy the hype and the demand and to back up the claims that they're saying
        but then again, covid is going to make logistics and manufacturing a little bit trickier this time around

    • +2

      "patience"

      This is to trap those who doesn't have any

  • I am smiling :)

  • 3000 is a huge step forward

  • +3

    Now this is starting to get tempting. My 1060 is begging to be replaced!
    Must…. Resist….

    • I feel you man

    • +1

      I am still using geforce 750 Ti until today and smile and not so desperate getting the 2000 or 3000 series

      • 3070 would be 10 750ti's in sli… If 10x sli where possible

    • +4

      Just use this to negotiate, I was able to get a two weeks old 2080 super Strix OC for $700 yesterday

    • If you can wait until early next year, we'll definitely be seeing the 3070 at this price, which is likely to be what, a 30% performance increase?

      • I think the pricing has come out for 3070.. Starts at like AUD$810.

        • +6

          That's the FE edition that isn't coming to Australia. Most people don't think we're going to be seeing prices like that for a little while yet. With low stock and high demand. It will likely take until next year before prices stabilise back down to that.

          • @ONEMariachi: Ah gotcha.. Makes sense.

            • @clyde82: Fingers crossed, we might get lucky haha

              • @ONEMariachi: Hope so.. I saw a petition for them to bring FE cards to Aus the other day.. With any luck they will bow to the masses.

                • +1

                  @clyde82: I think the decisions is more likely due to low stock than not wanting to send it here, but it will be cool if that changes, they loo so sleek.

                • +2

                  @clyde82: Lol Australia "the masses"

                  • +1

                    @MaxDong69: Fine.. our masses.. Happy?
                    Geez, pick a better hill to die on..

                • @clyde82: Just get everybody on ozbargain to send Jensen Huang([email protected]) an email requesting for FE cards for the Australian market.

                  Perhaps he will revoke the decision or something. :)

                  • @yolow: We've broken websites many times with our demand, it might work haha

      • +3

        Still many comments from people not following whats happening right now and has happened previously but here for summary:

        1. Although it’s been reported the rtx3070 will sell for $809AUD the same was reported for the rtx2070 and rtx2080 - we know that did not happen, with third party and founders pricing sitting much much higher.

        2. There has been numerous reports stating that if you had trouble obtaining a 2080 or 2070 when they launched, expect worse with this launch. The same reports stated that they have anywhere from one third to one half of that precious stock level for the 3080 & 3070 launch.

        3. We aren’t getting founders addition cards either so we are stuck with third party cards only.

        I’m no marketing expert but with those points above combined I do not see how we will even get a 3070 for cheaper than a 2080 Super. I’m expecting $1200-1300AUD for mid range third party cards. Which I believe is supported by current 2080ti cards current pricing placing it just beneath a 3070

        • I'm assuming knee jerk reaction and didn't see the rest of the conversation that occurred?

          I’m no marketing expert but with those points above combined I do not see how we will even get a 3070 for cheaper than a 2080 Super.

          You're right, you are not a marketing expert with assumptions like this. Whilst markets drive pricing, they also always take into consideration the effect of importing and losing out on sales due to that. Even with exorbitant delivery fees, and import taxes, importing from overseas would still be considerably cheaper than your supposed guesses there. Reign it in a bit mate. I can see $1000 pricing, absolutely, maybe a little higher, but pumping it to $1300 for only the mid range is really taking it too far.

          • @ONEMariachi: lol, aaronmr is tryna say that there is a shortage of stock so that means both domestic and international stocks, even if you are willing to import good luck trying to find one this year at a reasonable

            • +1

              @ln28909: Just bought a 3080 for $1150 + import/GST, so roughly $1400

              • @ONEMariachi: nice score man, but do you reckon that everyone could do the same?

                • @ln28909: Who knows, don't think anyone can really say for certain though. All one can say with any degree of confidence is that it is currently possible.

                  • @ONEMariachi: exactly, so you have two options: buy a pretty decent card to use now, or use one of those antic cards like RX 580 and wait of could be 10 days or up to 6 months. Just depends on what you want I guess.

                    for me a 3080 at $1400 with a painful warranty process is not as good as a 2080 super for $700 with 3 years AU warranty

        • +1

          I’m expecting $1200-1300AUD for mid range third party cards.

          We need to be able to vote for LOL as well as positive/negative for posts like this.

          • @mickeyjuiceman: You can legit import 3080's for around that cost now. It's actually ludicrous to even say that aha

            (profanity) it, just bought one, legit costing me $1400 for a 3080, lol

        • .PLE simply would not be selling this card at the price offered if your over top assumptions were remotely correct.

  • +7

    Electronics always go down in value over time. As soon as you bought something it is out of date. New 30 series, Big Navi and next gen consols around the corner. Usually I say buy when you need it. In this case I wait … the 20 series is over 2 years old and did not go down dramatically in price to reflect its age. The deals are getting better but it is still old tech. I personally wait 1-3 months now to upgrade.

    • +6

      Yeah the prices as they were reflected a stagnant, monopolised market. I'm surprised that nVidia are disrupting their own market though and I suspect they are trying to cut off competitors at the pass. They must have some knowledge on potential competitor offerings or see this as an opportunity to lock people in on their proprietary ray tracing tech. Same shit really and if it works, prices will go back up.

      • +3

        I guess there will be a bit more competition now. The new consoles look stunning on paper. Big Navi around the corner. (+ looks like only the 3090 is suitable for crypto mining). They milked their cash cow for a long time … time to innovate. I am not buying right now. Old tech it is.

      • Price and release date point towards FOMO with people moving over to consoles as the next gen specs look incredible for the price. Building a similar specked Gaming PC would have cost 2-3 fold - until now…

      • I think they are doing this as their competitors are the Sony ( playstation 5) and Microsoft with their new xbox release.

      • +2

        The consoles are the competition.
        The huge step in console performance (7 year stagnation) is actually jumping ahead of anything currently in the PC market.
        So NVIDIA has the serious problem of losing a whole year of PC upgrades to consoles, many of whom might not be back for 3 years, maybe never.

        This agressive pricing is about getting people to spend their console money on a GPU upgrade before the consoles become available, therefore keeping market share in PC ecosystem.

        • +1

          I might actually be one who swaps over to the consoles … the price points for the next-gen consoles look so good that you can nearly buy 2 of them or one with some great games. And then just build a work PC with integrated graphics. Why do I need to spend so much money on a graphics card alone when I get a whole system. I guess never was waiting so rewarding - the whole technology was stagnant for too long with expensive prices. The virus helped to make the last cycle even longer.

          The performance increase of the new 30 series is impressive. So no way I spend the money on a 20series card right now … I rather wait 1 month or 3.

        • Ah spot on I didn't think of that.

  • This is really a good price!!! However the rtx 3070 is expecting to cost $800+ and will probably be similar/ more powerful especially in higher resolution.

    • +3

      True, but we can safely say we won't be getting an RTX 3070 for anything around $800AUD, with some even predicting prices closer to $1K. On top of that, stock will be extremely low, making the chances of snagging one on release near impossible.

      So if you are in the "wait & see" category, chances are you may be waiting a while.

      • Any OC 3070’s will surely be $1k+

      • +2

        I'm not, I actually bought a cheap rtx 2060 super for $480 a few months ago to keep me waiting :) price mistake but they didn't cancel the order.

  • +3

    of course there's bargains coming out of winter.. Nobody wants to buy a heater now.

  • -3

    700 and it is a deal.

  • do wait for the 3070 which is nearly a 2080ti…for a bit more. wait for the reviews and maybe consider this 2080 then as prices would drop further.

    Getting a 20 series now is just not right…you are better off waiting a while longer unless you really need a gpu now…

    • +12

      Lets come back to this comment in a week and see how many Australians get a 3080 for the advertised RRP.

      Crypto shortage fears: https://www.techradar.com/au/news/crypto-miners-could-flock-...

      No founders edition stock for Australia: https://www.tomshardware.com/news/rtx-3090-3080-3070-founder...

      • Yeah might take a while for the prices to stabilise, I agree. Maybe a month or three after realease, it all depends on supply and demand. Will happen fairly soon though.

        • +6

          Maybe during normal times, but this is covid. B550 motherboards were barely that popular, and it took almost 3 months for mine to arrive. I think we'll be lucky to see stock levels by March. And then by that time,

          'RTX 4000 series announcement will be right around the corner, dont be silly and pay RRP for old RTX 3000 series'!
          /s

          Australian retailers wont even commit to a release time, let alone preorders. This spells a very clear message out. Partner cards will be charging extortion rates and people will happily pay to get the very small stock we have access to.

          • @Kill Joy: Actually they explicitly confirmed a release time in that thread.. 11pm AEST on the 17th.

            I could extrapolate that like you did and say this spells a very clear message out. Partner cards will be charging acceptable rates and people will happily pay to get the very small stock we have access to.

            But I won't because I don't have a magic ball and neither do you.

        • +6

          There’s going to be a lot of shocked (maybe some no so shocked) people here come the 17th. With no FE cards available in aus/nz, third party’s are going to gauge the f out of the market. Expect 3080’s to hit above $1300.

          https://www.nvidia.com/en-au/geforce/products/store/

          • @tkotk: What's to stop people from getting a deal off Amazon US?

            • @chyawala: Stock levels have already been announced as in short supply. How many deals for 2080’s were there on Amazon us when they first released?

              • @tkotk: No FOMO here mate. Mentioned as proof of concept of ordering FE edition from US that no-one is talking about. Theres nothing to worry about, its not like we are being swindled and gazumped by a greasy real estate tactic. Come Oct, AMD will be releasing cards with similar performance and at a better price. Competition is good, and its only because of them and performance of next gen consoles does it help keep the prices honest. Otherwise they'd just keep on trying to fleece us.

                • @chyawala: US has stock issues too and they dont prioritize international orders. Thats how i got my B550, and like i said, took 3 months as I had to wait for second batch to arrive in US even though i ordered on they morning of release.

          • +2

            @tkotk: Yes. This. I'm surprised people are so confident of the price and availability.

            I don't know how, but I managed to get a 2080 for under $1000 about 6 months after launch. Did they EVER approach that price again???

            I'm definitely interested in the 3080, but I'll be waiting for the same price and I have a strong feeling I'll be waiting a long time. But I guess we'll see.

Which I believe is supported by current 2080ti cards current pricing placing it just beneath a 3070

      • +1

        Exactly my comments. Mid-tier 3070’s at best will be $1k, with ROG Strix etc closer to $1200/$1300.

  • Weren’t these over $2K like last week?

    • No that was RTX 2080Ti

      • My bad… I knew one of the good Nvidia cards were over $2K… the 2080 Super is meant to pretty solid still!

        Bring on that 3080… btw, JayzTwoCents has just uploaded a hands on https://youtu.be/zxJDdRgs7Lw

        Get ready to get creative with the new 12pin

    • That was the Ti .. these would have been over 1k

  • +4

    I suspect the 3000 series will be very rare when released. Great demand pushes up prices.
    The 3080 might suffer even greater as I have heard it makes a good etherium miner. 2018 all over again

  • I'm thinking the 20x0's with virtual link/usb-c port will still hold some value. Anyone else?

    • VirtualLink has been deprecated

      • Yeh I'm saying it might have value for people who still have a use for the port on the card

  • -3

    What is the point, $650 on a ti might be worthwhile for a few months.

  • +6

    Lot of wishful thinking in this thread.

  • What does everyone think the end value on these will end up being? $500? $600?

    • I doubt it. Far too many people get excited at a discount and will deplete stock before it gets that low.

      I do believe there'll be some awesome prices on used 2080 ti. I'm not in a rush and just keeping an eye out how low used 2080 ti go down to. Will definitely will jump on one if the price is right, if not will grab a 3070 oc, definitely will be staying away from FE.
