Sapphire NITRO+ Radeon RX 6800 XT SE 16GB Video Card
Vendor Part No: 11304-01-20G
Vendor Name: SAPPHIRE
Still $500 over RRP.
$400 i believe …
You are incorrect - this is an non-reference design.
The reference 6800xt started at $1049.
So even if this was a reference card, your comment of $500 over RRP is wrong.
yeh from what i've seen the AIB cards are actually a good 20-30% over MSRP which is near impossible to find now anyway… there's some controversy with the AIB's saying they are buying the chips for their cards are much higher prices which they then have to pass on and margins are tiny … although i doubt that at the moment with the shortages … either way it's crazy time we live in…
Maybe not exactly $500, sorry for my heinous inaccuracy.
OzB is not a place for heinous exaggerations when it comes to prices … even when warranted with the moronic GPU prices
@scud70: It's hardly an outrageous exaggeration. I didn't think the post you replied to required an /s but here we are.
@Azzazz: Lol true that
as ppl have said, reference card was $1069 so this is not that bad, maybe $200 but considering you cant find any and this card is on par with 3080 minus rtx then its not a bad deal
For a non-reference design I think it's a good price. Besides, it's a gaming GPU. Getting one that's not from a scalper is win if you can pay for it
Isnt this a scalper?
(Scorptec and pccg got it for 1399. both reliable and well known.)
They're all out of stock. Also, the MSRP for Sapphire cards are likely to increase very soon too, following other AIBs like PowerColor and Nvidia AIB cards.
I need a dam reference 6800xt and in stock for <$1100. It seems I may have missed the boat
Yes you have
Boat burst into flames and sank. Then blown up by a WW2 sea mine with the last of the GPUs in the world.
The reason it's in stock is because it's over-priced.
$1399 from PLE (pre-order) - 1.1% with Shopback cashback $1383.61
*the reason it's in stock is because people only want 3080
Nobody is preordering from ple with the expectations of actually receiving their cards anymore
What do you mean? I preordered a card that had the correct eta date.
Just go through discord and reddit, the majority of people hate ple now, sure their prices were great but they are just too unreliable
@ln28909: PLE is selling the 3080 Tuf for $1800. I don’t think their price is “great” anymore
@ozvictor: That's the new msrp for the card
With 3000 series, asus card is now super expensive while performing like a bottom of the barrel cards, I wouldn't touch them if I were you
@ln28909: that's… an insane price hike
Looks like I made the right decision to buy a 3070 2 weeks ago. PLE has increased the price of the EVGA XC3 ULTRA 3070 from $949 to $999
@scrimshaw: Yeah the tariff in the us somehow affected Australia really badly lol
@ozvictor: I just managed to score the 3080 TUF OC variant for $1550 on market the other day. Amazing for mining eth with the heat sync incorporated onto the ram.
@dsiritz: Can you get over 103mh with it?
@ln28909: Possibly… I'm on a stable 101.5 that also ends up keeping the fans from going nuts so I've left it at that.
i got mine within the promised timeframe
not their fault no one else had competing prices
For every 1 person that is satisfied, you have 10 that aren't
What ple did with their pricing and the unlimited preorder queue is unacceptable, ple is the bad guy here
It is their fault for setting up unrealistic expectations and then failure to deliver on them
@ln28909: they already honored majority of launch night orders
once again not their fault every other retailers had it for $200-500 more
@Freestyle: Yes so takes 3 month to fulfill orders on launch day while stillnaccepting preorder for the same items 2 months later, seem like it's not their fault here
its in stock as they only just got some 6800 xt stock in AUS, and if its anything like in the past they only send around 100 cards all up between all the retailers so miss out on this and wait another month for a chance again
ebay price is $1700 for a pretty much stock ref card
Surely no one is buying that, you can get a 6800xt for under $1550 from a retailer everyday of the week
Surely if we storm the store together, we can take all the cards for free??
This aint portland.
people still under the impression that 3080 should cost $1139 and 6800 xt should be $1049. But these prices never actually exist. Even a 3070 cost over $1000 for most models. Nvidia and AMD are the one to blame, the MSRPs they set are basically lies.
I don't think AMD and Nvidia are to blame here, their leaps forward caused an extreme demand for their products.
It's not too far fetched to think that they thought RRP would be a good starting point with the demand on the previous generation. Combine that with the currents effects of scalping, and people staying at home due to Covid wanting to upgrade.
no, they are to blame, AMD cant produce enough stock with new Ryzen and Xbox + PS5 launch (as you can see by their delays as well)
Nvidia is just tapering production to keep their prices high (and in turn AMDs)
there is no reason Nvidia cant produce adequate number of cards, they have the resources
Care to back this up with some sources
@ln28909: common sense? Nvidia is a 18 Billion dollar company
yet they cant produce enough cards ? like for real?
they are running the same scam since latter 1080ti days
amd on the other hand…they were always a small fish
@botchie: So with common sense, nvidia is holding back on their gpu production which is the main source of their revenue to sell less gpu and making people p$$$ off
That common sense is beyond me
@ln28909: who knows but how come they never have adequate stock?
when you are responsible for pretty much 90% of the gaming market what other option do ppl have then pay high price for a product if its hard to get?
I can guarantee you they would have plenty of stock if there were other options there, maybe 4-5 other card makers and ppl actually have the choice
I would hate to think how things would be if AMD wasnt around, we saw how much 2080ti was and what was the reason for that $2500 price?
Just look at ddr4 price when it first came out vs now
Nvidia pushed rtx and dlss with their 2000 series, there was a lot of r&d and risk associated with an innovation, hence a higher price
Now that the tech is mature with less r&d, its prices drop, natural cycle
Without nvidia, what would amd brings to the table, just look at their gpus, still has a long way to go before they can compete with nvidia
@ln28909: come on now
if your blind to scam thats 2080ti then theres no point to this
@botchie: I thought we're just applying common sense
@botchie: Nvidia doesn't own their own fabrication plant, they were producing their new line with Samsung's fab who have very poor yields and quality. They are now planning to move back over to TSMC who has been completely swamped with producing all of AMD's GPUs, CPUs and the two new consoles. Also Intel are booking space in TSMC too, which is a historic change cause by the failure to upgrade their own fabs.
So the reason for the low number of consoles, GPUs and CPUs is because the tech giants have put all their eggs in one basket and have bottle necked the production. The cost of TSMC's last fab plant was over $9 billion, the next one is expected to cost $20 billion.
This place is a rip off. Avoid.
Went into physical shop once, wouldnt sell GPU or CPU without buying a whole system.
It's their prerogative not to sell you a GPU on its own. It's not really a valid reason to feel ripped off.
Vote with your wallet I say.
Use the GPU stock alert discord for stuff like this.
Not a deal. Com. Au
