      What IS the MSRP for cards? They've been skewed for so long I just don't know anymore

      • +32 votes

        $529.

        • +38 votes

          Damn, still a fair way to go

        • +18 votes

          This is true, however, we never saw anything below $730ish here in Aus. Suspect $529 (or similar) won't happen any time soon but if we can at least get back to $700ish, push 2060 down to $500, that would be a start.

        Doesn't really say much for the distributors if the MSRP is $399 (USD), and our retail is between $900 - 1200+ AUD.

        Surely the distributors / suppliers are getting these things at or around MSRP and with the constricted supply, operating on a supply and demand based valuation, and passing those costs on to most retailers / consumers.

        Would be extremely interesting to see the breakdown of pricing at all stages of the supply chain (manufacturer, board partners, distributors, suppliers, retailers).

          you are forgetting import duty, GST, and probably something else our grubby politicians add in to the mix, cant ever compare us to aus

            @botchie: Import duty
            GST
            Port charges
            Freight charges
            Company tax

            Just the tip of the iceberg for additional monetary costs

    Yeah only about 2 times the MSRP now /s

    • +3 votes

      Yeah, doing the USD / AUD conversion on EVGAs own website $399 USD works out to be around $550 AUD.

      • +11 votes

        I'd settle for $600, maybe $650, even though I used to set my budget at $500 tops.

      • +5 votes

        Never a straight USD/AUD conversion from the USD MSRP, have to include things like tax and import fees etc. It's the same way with all electronics.

        • +4 votes

          So, maximum 20% on top for those. That's $650.

        • +5 votes

          No matter what way you cut it, we don't get just import fees and such.

          There's always a secret 30 - 50% tax I like to call the 'Get (profanity)' Tax.

      Got this exact model for $759. This is a bad deal. You can get a lhr 3060 for $829. This is a LHR card, eVGA just don’t state it.

        Aren't all 3060's hash rate limited or something?

          This is the 2.0 card. The version 1 could be unlocked by 470.05 driver

          •  

            @CrazyBargainCatcher: Oh ok, I had no idea there was an unlock for them. Hopefully all these LHR cards keep the prices coming down

            •  

              @dmouse81: Yea, version 1.0 can easily be circumvented by the driver. Some developer "accidentally" uploaded a version of the driver without the limiter lol.

      •  

        Yea, this is a bad deal.

        •  

          Isn't this a KR rather than a KL variant? I thought it was KL variants that were hash rate limited?

    Is this a good graphics card to run fortnite guys ? Sorry i know nothing about pc

    • +2 votes

      overkill

    •  

      go on YouTube and search Fortnite GPU benchmarks where they show the performance of each GPU for that game; and yes, the 3060 is overkill for Fortnite.

    •  

      Yes, but it's overpriced and unnecessary if that's all you want to run. You could get away with something half the price, or possibly CPU integrated graphics.

    •  

      Depends, for a basic playable experience? A decent phone or cheap laptop could work.

      For competitive(consistent 240fps, broadcasting, etc)? Will probably have noticeable dips when shit gets real in tournaments & scrims-the 3070 should give you a little headroom.

    30series purchase should start with 3060ti.

      I think the 1080ti beats the 3060 in performance.

        1080ti is faster , and you could get them for near this price during sales in 2017. That's how crazy it is that this is consideted a bargain now

      They need to make the hashrate limit stick and crypto needs to crash hard for that to happen unfortunately.

      Its the invisible hand of the market. Gamers value the cards differently to miners.

        How hard? Months ago Bitcoin was 60k, now it's like 30k isn't it? That's a 50% drop

        • +2 votes

          a year ago it was 13k. all relative i guess!

        •  

          I've been a miner since 2013. Mining is still very very profitable. I'm not mining Bitcoin by the way, no one uses GPU to mine Bitcoin, well technically they can, they wouldn't get much profits though.

          Months ago Bitcoin was 60k, now it's like 30k isn't it? That's a 50% drop

          What's your point? 1 year ago to this day, it was $9536USD, 3 years ago to this day it was $7518 USD, 5 years ago to this day it was $2750 USD, 7 years ago it was $280 USD. We can quote prices all day lol.

          Bitcoin was one of the best performing assets in the last decade (property returns are not even in the same universe by the way) and I'm sure it will be one of the best again in the next decade (2020-2030). You can screenshot this and remind me in 2030 haha.

        •  

          90+% drop like in the bear market I reckon. During 2019, I was still mining, but it was very close to break even, sometimes at a loss when I turned off my rigs.

    Disappointing they dont list LHR on their description. Mining or not, we have a right to know if the hardware we are buying is handicapped in anyway.

    • +1 vote

      Aren't all 3060s LHR? You could probably just get the driver update that disables it anyway if you wanted to mine

      • +2 votes

        All 3060s should be LHR, however there's a difference between version 1.0 and version 2.0. The first version of the limit can be easily circumvented via a driver, while its a little hard for version 2.0.

        Its a bit of a grey area I think. Its definite to the 3080 where there is a clear distinction between the LHR and non-LHR version.

    •  

      They do this for 3060ti/3070/3080 now. 3060, 3070ti and 3080ti are all LHR standard from what I'm aware of. Yes early 3060 you could circumnavigate but they were intended to be LHR.

  •  

    For those waiting for MSRP or the price to drop significantly further, you may have to wait abit longer or it will never come at all. The drop in prices has stalled, the market has found a new equilibrium.

    Despite the fall in crypto prices, it is still profitable to mine with these cards, so the there's demand from miners outside of China for these cards, hence prices are unlikely to go back to MSRP.

    •  

      Probably need to wait until etherium fully moves to proof of stake and becomes more profitable on other rigs for them to go much lower sadly.

      •  

        Well, Ethereum is just one of hundreds of coins which can be mined on graphics cards. This is why even the LHR limiter wouldn't be effective as it only targets Ethereum. When Ethereum moves totally into proof of stake next year (if its not delayed again), miners will switch to other coins.
