      Piggybacking here to mention there's not a single comment about recent 3060 Ti deals.

      It's an 8-12% performance drop compared to this, and it's regularly going for 25-30% less…

      RTX 3070 and 3070 Ti are the mid-range vanity purchase in the current lineup.

      • +8 votes

        Vanity purchase seems like a weird description, as unless you use it for work, aren't all graphics cards purchase a vanity purchase of sorts?

        •  

          Vanity = epeeen

          •  

            @foursaken: I think FabMan means vanity = high resolution, high FPS and high graphics setting. Not the design of the card looking flashy and full of RGB.

        Thanks.
        I just looked up the founders edition RRP. USD499, so about AUD750 with GST added.

        I hope one day cards get back to sensible pricing.

        • +9 votes

          FE pricing is completely irrelevant in Aus. Only AIB pricing matters.

        • +8 votes

          RRP in Australia was 809
          Not that there were many if any of them available at launch anyway

        • +1 vote

          RRP was $809. So about 40% extra on price.

          Pretty good for a 3070, the 3060ti is still better value but this card is a killer for 1440p

        •  

          As local retailers also need to make something and none were available at this price, seems like a false yard stick.

          I get where you are coming from, but I don't think you will see this product St that price ever (even when the 4xxx come out).

          Since launch AIB's have come out and said they will be charging more then MSRP due to tariffs in USA (yes this will carry over to those outside the USA) shortages and so on. Quick google will find stories about it -

            •  

              @Auspcbuilda: How much would a 3080ti have been at launch if all this crazy stuff didn’t happen ?

              I’m thinking $1,700 - $2,200.

              Would that have been close ?

          •  

            @Auspcbuilda: All graphics cards that come to Australia have to go through the USA first and incur a 25% tariff now? That seems like madness, why don't they just send them another way??

    •  

      It was possible to get 3070 with two fans under $900 in December/January.

    Won’t be long until Nvidia’s profits start dropping and they quickly rethink LHR.

    • +3 votes

      I think it's distributors that were jacking up prices, not nvidia. Nvidia also makes cruise ships of cash. If that drops to tug boats of cash….no matter how you look at it, it's still boatloads of cash!

      • +3 votes

        Unfortunately, that's not how shareholders think 😋

        • +1 vote

          I would imagine most people on the board of a large tech company would be looking at their company's net revenue, rather than what individual SKUs are selling for at online retailers.

          Nvidia's profits shouldn't be changing much at all, since they weren't the ones price jacking.

      •  

        According to AMD RAM costs twice what it did a year ago, logistics is way more expensive than a year ago, so it's not just price jacking.
        Still sucks though.

      You can’t please one side without upsetting the other. Gamers may not have as much purchasing power as miners, but they have existed for as long as GPUs has been around. Nvidia had to do something since their first attempt to LHR was half baked. They threw a bone towards gamers but I don’t expect more from them anytime sooner

    •  

      If Nvidia releases non LHR 'mining' cards at scalper pricing, they will make even more money than before, selling to both gamers and miners

      • +1 vote

        they have mining specific SKUS for it now. No need for them to cross contaminate

      This cards will clearly cost 800+ AUD very soon. Why do you think everyone says HOLD? Retailer screws us with +50% price over RRP because someone is buying video cards for such ridiculous prices.

      • +1 vote

        I believe the retailers know the price of GPU cards are going to drop significantly, so rather than waiting for stock to arrive and then advertise at lower prices later, they try to sell them now at higher prices, locking the orders in with those impatient customers while the stock is still a few weeks away from arrival.

            @dmgmelba: Agree. Not everyone is a miner and planning to sell them a few years later. I usually hand my old build down to my father to use (for basic office apps and web browsing).

              @edfoo: exactly. LHR would be perfect for that sort of use case.

    where does this model fit in the lineup? looks pretty beefy but seems like a cheaper one.

    for example there was that MSI Gaming X Trio a while back for 1200 that seemed like a higher end model(also non-LHR for what matters)

    but again the proper price for these should be the around 1000 range depending on the model.

          I agree, and I think everyone who wanted 3080 cards in Australia waited to some extent… but some waited and paid $1200, some $2000+

      Honestly it is a punt. The crypto market can take off and in Dec, this price will let you view a card for 1 hr.

      •  

        admittedly this is a good buy at the price, considering the last 12 months

        the only thing holding me back is that say in another few months if 3800's get down to like 1400-1500 - i would much rather getting one of those

        still slogging away on my rx480, but gotta pull the trigger soon. just upgraded my monitor to 1440, so i def need the performance boost soon

  •  

    I regret selling my non-LHR MSI gaming trip for $1400.

    •  

      It's ok my friend. I sold my Asus TUF OC 3080 for $2200 after paying $1500 off a scalper 6mths prior and mining with it in my down time. I'm holding out for the 6600 XT on the 11th - hopefully a good cheap solution to high fps e-sports gaming.

    Man there's a lot of herd mentality going on here.

    Ethereum prices are on the rise again and GPU price drops have stalled worldwide expecting another 3 months at least until stocks are back up.

    Honestly, at this rate the prices won't come down until the new AMD cards come out.

    If you want a card now, don't wait, this is the best price you'll get currently for a decent 3070. Everywhere else is 1400 MINIMUM.

    •  

      6600 xt coming out on the 11th should be a good value proposition.

  •  

    I went for the 3060 Ti at $850, I think bang for bucks it makes slightly more sense, at least for my 1440p use case.

    Agree with @JarryS88. People, just do what you want to do.

    •  

      Hey what one did you get? It was between an Inno3D and Asus Dual Mini right? How are they? Can't find reviews on the Dual Mini, nobody is covering it. But it is the more interesting card because of the smaller board and cooling, wondering how it stacks up.

      •  

        I went for ASUS as they seem to be using quality components (VRM etc) this gen. It was a pre-order, they "should" be in on the 18th but we will see. Hopefully the fact that they are LHR means the estimates are reasonably accurate.

  •  

    Great price and great card! I have a Palit which is almost the same thing. Highly recommend!

  •  

    Such a good deal but my monitor does FreeSync through HDMI :(

  •  

    Pulled the plug on the 3080 non lhr (gainwind). Couldn't hold after more than a year (time is a blur for me). The downside is it is LOUD. Upside, mining to offset the cost of the card from MSRP.

    •  

      What are your settings and hashrate? I've heard it can easily push past 100MH/s though with loud fans.

      •  

        I am not trying to mine with the card and ruin it in the long run. I use my PC and mine at the same time. So it is a pseudo room heater. Core limit 975 mem 9501. Getting around 80
