    I checked in the morning (around 10am) and it was $1,999.. I sent them a message asking if this come with gift set like the previous deal and seems the price went up by $100. Should not have hesitated :(

It is depicted in a multitude of Old Norse sagas and mythological texts.[2] Some researchers have suggested Asgard to be one of the Nine Worlds surrounding the tree Yggdrasil.[3] In Norse Mythology, Asgard is a fortified home to the Aesir tribe of gods located in the sky."

      It is shocking to see the GPU prices keep rising. So much for the GPU prices will crash when the crypto market crashes. Unless crypto market is meant to crash even more?

      I really doubt it. It's the gamers' turn to hoard the Video Cards. Especially those who didn't get a chance to buy one (or two). lol

      •  

        It's currently the gamers hoarding cards, mostly always has been.

        I'm being a bit loose with words here, but it's just very high demand from everyone (still mostly gamers) outstripping supply and causing shortages. The crypto market is big yeah and it has an impact, but the regular gamers market is significantly larger and is contributing massively to the pressure on manufacturers.

        It would be nice to have one group to blame, but there isn't really one to point at. (This is all mostly according to the LTT video on the topic, and given their contacts I'd take their word for it)

      •  

        I just want the GPU, nigh impossible to get a reasonably priced 3070.
        Curious to hear the opinion of the neg vote…? lol

        • +2 votes

          I was thinking keep the 2060 super system because the rest of the parts are a couple of generations old and get rid of the 3070 while the market is high but if you need a 3070 do the opposite. As for the neg dunno people see the word resell and i guess neg but ill + it cauz its reasonable to me if you wanna its your item.

          •  

            @XiTaU: Ah yeah, I see what you're saying, but I did a new build with the intention of upgrading to a 3070 (2060 was from a older build); I just didn't buy one when the prices were semi reasonable.

      Probably one of the more reliable ways to get a reasonably priced 3070 atm. I sold my 3070 this week for $1600 on Gumtree and I had buyers within the first hour (probably could have gotten more).

      • +1 vote

        Jeez. That's the same price I paid for my Asus TUF 3080 OC. Absolutely nuts.

        •  

          Yeah it's nuts. I paid $900 for that card last year and passed on a chance for a Vision OC 3080 for $1500 thinking it was robbery.

    •  

      Lots of people trying to do exactly this with the old BPC deal and the various Dell XPS/G5 deals. I don't think they're actually shifting very quickly if at all on the used market. But still probably a better way to go than just copping it in the neck for a 3070 by itself at ~$1700 or so.

      I'd wait for the 3070 Ti release next week and try to nab one of them.

      I believe it's a dongle. Better off getting this for a similar price.

    Since GPUs and gaming aren't a necessity, if you have the patience I reckon just wait, GPU prices are getting more ridiculous day by day. Can't believe people are lining up in the US to buy a 3080 Ti when it's pretty much daylight robbery by Nvidia (10% better performance than 3080 for $600 USD more)

          A lot of people working from home has lead to an increased demand for home desktops. Combined with the greater than expected performance uplift with Ampere, a global silicon shortage, profitable crypto mining and gamers who skipped the poor value Turing architecture and you have your reason.

With Windows Subsystem for Linux I have everything I need in Windows 10. The laptop would have I guess 1/4 to 1/3 the performance of my Desktop. I can't go back to using such a poorly performing machine. When I'm working, I need my PC to ask "how high" when I say jump, not to sit around spinning its little rainbow wheel for a bit and give me a bit of lip.

              •  

                @Gamer Dad Reviews: What do you do that needs massively more power than a modern Macbook, especially with the new M1 models out now? I use my couple of years old MacBook Pro for everything and while admittedly its a maxed out spec, and I use 3x 4k monitors at my office desk. But i run half a dozen large businesses (retail and accom) and do a decent amount of video and high res photo editing on the side and I just never, ever find that my computer slows me down at all.

                I know that there is work where a more powerful machine is really required (eg 4k/8k video editing), but why would your work provide you with an underpowered MacBook if that is what you need to get your work done? I am genuinely interested in what you do for a job.

                The only common use case I can imagine is gaming, where PC is obviously far superior to Mac.

    During the last deal I got in for the preorder, until 2 weeks later they quietly changed the description of the GPU to be LHR (lower hash rate)
    Cancelled order then, so buyer beware. For more info, check the previous post

      Yep, they did change to LHR but as far as I am aware everyone who received the system got a Non-LHR card including me, so not sure if it was a miscommunication with the supplier.

      But right on your part, they shouldn't be changing description in a sneaky way without informing the customer.

    • +1 vote

      They weren’t LHR cards in the end. I wasn’t happy with the build I got though as the parts were not as they listed. Sneaky changes were made. XPG ram for one.

      •  

        True, would you take that risk for a $2k purchase that was actually confirmed to be LHR by their support at that time tho?

          I did take the risk, and still wasn’t happy with the build to be fair.

              @Johnny L: I sold the whole thing on FB marketplace for what I paid, just hanging out for a 3080 deal now…

    •  

      Expect most 3070 and 3080 pre-build sales to be LHR going forward. Non LHR will fetch a higher price, while they are still produced. As Nvidia is going to produce LHR and non LHR cards side by side for now I would guess that there will be less non LHR stock.

      I am sure labeling and descriptions will catch up soon.

    Wow, i didn't realize GPU prices have inflated even further past few months. Beyond outrageous price gauging by the board manufacturers and distributors.

    Decent deal, Dell XPS desktop with lower end parts would be about $2100.

  • +1 vote

    looks decent if it’s not the LHR card

    •  

      If you are only gaming then why does that matter?
      Eth is scheduled to move to Proof of Stake and then the whole LHR Eth limiting will be irrelevant. Can still mine other coins.

      •  

        ETH PoS has been talked about for years, it's still a while off, an educated guess would be mid to late 2022, I think Vitalik (ETH founder) went on a podcast recently and stated end of 2022. EIP1559 will have more of an impact, but then see below
        LHR as you said is not as powerful as touted because other coins are almost as profitable to mine currently (ERGO (actually more profitable than ETH currently), RVN etc…)

        Regardless @maluouphix listing description states "Gigabyte RTX 3070 Gaming OC 8GB Graphics full power version"

  •  

    lhr or not?

      From the Specs page:

      Software- Optional
      WIFI- Optional

      • +1 vote

        So does "full power version" definitely mean non-LHR? AFAIK the LHR new cards draw the same amount of power as before, nVidia just limits the hash function. Having said that, on Gigabyte's website there is no indication that they have a LHR RTX3070 yet.

    Bought 1 with the upgrade to 32Gb. Have been stuck gaming on a NUC since my PC died 16 months ago. Looking forward to playing something released in the last 10 years.

    FYI: Called them and they said about two weeks to build and send them out.

    The Gigabyte Z390 UD ATX LGA1151 Motherboard has an additional 4-pin ATX power connector but the EVGA GD (2019) 600 W 80+ Gold Certified ATX Power Supply does not. This connector is used to supply additional 12V current to the motherboard. While the system will likely still run without it, higher current demands such as extreme overclocking or large video card current draws may require it.

      realistically, a 9900ks will do everything the vast, vast majority of people would ever want to do…

        So the fact that I have to ask is that I'm not the vast, vast majority.

        •  

          What are you doing that a 9900KS won't achieve? the only real step up from here is a ryzen 5800X (even a 11900K won't be a marked improvement over the 9900KS).
