      Could have bought a 3070 for $900 at the start of the year. Suppliers did a price jack.

          I bit the bullet for a leadtek 3070 or less than $1k. Spewing cos I could have gotten a inno3d for $900 but avoided that since they were $800ish.

          I've been mining to make up the lost money :/

    How does the 3070 get away with 8GB of RAM in a world rapidly moving towards 4k (non competitive) gaming?

      So you buy the next years model

      4k dlss quality, easy, the card can't do 4k natively anyway

      a world rapidly moving towards 4k (non competitive) gaming?

      People have been saying this since 2012. I remember people asked the same thing when the 780 had 3GB of VRAM. Almost 10 years later, hardly anybody is on 4K. Higher quality textures, higher refresh rates…etc. have all been much more central than 4K.

      If you want more VRAM, get the 6800 with 16GB. The option exists.

      • +3 votes

        The difference is 4k monitors weren't commonplace for gaming back then.

        I mean they still aren't now, but 1440p is now the standard for new high end monitors, and 4k monitors you might actually want to buy will come out this year/next year.

        • +5 votes

          Most people are on 1080p monitors according to steam stats

        • +4 votes

          I think 1440p will still be the sweet-spot for a few more years (at least for the usable life of the 3070) for gaming. 4K60 is good for work because of the increased real estate, but 1440p 144Hz (or similar) is still a far better gaming experience than 4K60.

          I agree that some 4K high refresh monitors may be coming, but I can't see a space for them yet given that even the highest end GPUs won't be able to push enough frames to make them a viable option.

        •  

          Meanwhile linux flexing that 8k gaming..

        •  

          I paid about $580 for a Samsung 4k 28in monitor in 2012 it's still going strong but I actually upgraded to a Samsung G7 Odyssey 32in just recently. The drop to 1440p is so much more worth it to game at 120fps plus and the Odyssey constantly sits around 200fps in most titles.

          The problem I always had with 4k is that no matter how old the monitor was it would always push graphics cards to their limits as games kept getting more and more detailed. Even today's 3080/3090 will start to bog down with the next generation of games. 4k 60fps is not as great as 1440p 120fps in my opinion.

      •  

        Consoles Are Always the push. Sure the PC are always onto it earlier and whatever, but consoles make features mainstream. Think about features like direct storage which are now coming to pc as a result of consoles, even though PCs have had ssds for ages that could have benefited from a feature like that. As such, it is not unreasnoble to suspect that 4k 60 will be the next hit, giving how much the ps5 and xbox advertise it. Furthermore, mainstream buyers seem to like "4k" as a buzz word of sorts.

      Vram? I've not seen any game push my 2080 with 8 in this area at 3440x1440.

          1440p is literally the sweetest spot for gaming right now - not sure what your issue is though

          •  

            @botchie: Samsung G7 Odyssey is pretty much the best monitor on the market. Having that 1440p at 240hz is something else.

            •  

              @Yawhae: Indeed, with a 6800 xt it's something else indeed

      •  

        Steam Hardware survey takes into account Cybercafes/businesses that also opt in to the survey, where for budget reasons they'd all be 1080p monitors.
        The data is diluted.

        It also doesnt take into trends which is where sales data probably would show a much more accurate picture that avg gaming consumer would be moving towards 1440p/ultrawides.

        •  

          Correct. I tried to point that out to him, but he doesn't understand. He thinks also that Steam HW survey understands what resolution people select in games, but it just takes your monitor's native resolution on desktop as an estimate.

    How long this will get sold out?

    •  

      Very soon, since there's no buy limit

      I know a few people that were planning to bulk buy at $1100 for a 3070

      •  

        You dont need to, gumtree and fb have plenty 3070 under 1.1k, brand new.

        •  

          Much easier to buy in bulk like this rather than try to find a bargain 1 at a time on gumtree, this card is like $8 a day already

      I was at a PC store picking up a GPU earlier, and in the 5 mins I was waiting 2 people called wanting to buy 10 or more mid-range cards, so miners are definitely looking to buy GPU's again.

    Hopefully they have at least a palit of these so they don't sell out too quickly

    Thanks, finally grabbed one.

    Not a bad price for a good 3 fan 3070. This model reviewed quite well. Much better than the Zotax/ASUS twin fan garbage you find at ~$1000

    Wow thanks mate! I just did an impulse purchase!

    I recently bought a brand new RTX 2060 and now used RTX 2060s!

    Need to sell em off! LOL.

    My 550w PSU cannot handle this I am sure :(

    In any case, this will be one of the cheapest RTX 3070 deal in the next 1-3 months I am sure.

      This one is comparable to XC3 ultra and only $30 more than what you paid. Not bad tbh, dare I say maybe the supply issues seem to be easing off the 3070s and the AMD cards.

      The 3060ti has been totally killed by miners though, since it hashes at the same rate at the 3070 miners are willing to pay 3070 prices for 3060ti's. Combine that with NVIDIA's already inflated 3060ti price in Australia.

      3080's also seem nonexistent

    •  

      I got xc3 ultra 999 from PLE yesterday. Delivery in 4 days. Should I cancel the order and get this one instead?

      •  

        its out of stock now anyway just keep the PLE one. had stock here and there but i see now theres no ETA =/

    •  

      Same boat. Initially paid $1169 for Aorus Master due to FOMO, then decided to return and got XC3 ultra instead, couldn't justify the $220 difference

    •  

      i bought that for 959, still okay given the price jacking everywhere - good card so far, 3440x1440p games run smooth.

  •  

    Again do you think my 550W bronze PSU will handle it. I have Ryzen 3700x (65 TDP) with stock cooler and run just games like CS:GO for now.

      Yes

    •  

      100% okay if running at stock, maybe even be fine with an OC

    • +5 votes

      Do you really need 3070 for your CS:GO?

      •  

        It's a much more pleasant experience to play cs go at 1440p with a 2080 ti than a 2060 super from my experience

    Good deal, but missed… I think I'm just going to pretend the 30 series cards were never released and revisit trying to purchase one 6 months or so.

      isnt that all tech releases

    •  

      I was in the same boat and kept missing all the deals and today happened to snag this.

      Thats a good approach but keep an eye out and you might get lucky.

      Palit predates brands like Galax by a long way. I remember having a Palit branded Riva TNT2

        Palit are the parent company of Galax. But yes, Palit is an old Taiwanese brand that's been around a while.
