Not as cheap as the EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 XC3 BLACK 8GB LHR $849 but it does have a back plate
I’m hodling for 5070… on sale once the 6000s are released.
I'm hodling for 7070 or 8080, lucky numbers.
Isn't RX 6x50 XT cards are coming next week? Followed by Nvidia cards and the new Intel(lol) GPUs much later on.
Another gorgeous deal for the big dollar extravagants
Not too long ago people were paying this for 3060 12GB cards :)
Is this a premium 3070 card? On the same tier as the rog strix or lower?
It looks like Gainward card, you gain award buy using it…
lower but better than the gigabyte, palit, zotac's of the world apparently
Decent cooler at expense of some fan noise, no OC by default but can take a bit
What does PNY stands for? it starts with a P…
"The first memory modules were traded between Paris and New York, thus forming the acronym PNY."
damn i thought it was related to PNG
Weren't these 1500 about a year ago?
These numbers are from the latest Hardware Unboxed 6 game (medium quality preset) average benchmarks for 2022 (https://youtu.be/gMUcZ7978rc?t=570). It doesn't take into consideration Ray Tracing, DLSS, etc I am aware 3k res isn't a thing, but I averaged the 1440p and 4k resolution performance stats. I personally run a 1440p ultrawide, so 3k is about right for me.
Btw another opnion for your table. While I understand the 3k thing as well as you using a 1440p ultrawide to justify it, that column is useless for me (and I believe most people will find that too).
I'm using M27Q before and Dell G3223Q as my main monitor, so if I want to find the best p/p GPU for my monitor, can I find it in your table? No. So should I think that "hey M27Q and G3223Q average resolution is 3k, so use it?". No, because only G3223Q is my main monitor and M27Q is a sub one, average two monitors with different used cases is absurd.
So I think it's better to add 2 columns for 1440p p/p and 4K p/p GPUs, and if the table looks messy then remove the 3K columns. As much as I appreciate your effort to make the table, that 3K column is more like for your own fetish rather than helpful information lol.
I just a 1440p ultrawide. A lot of people do with the Xiaomi Mi monitor deals that have come up.
If you don't like it just don't read the column?
Is not about I like it or not, but I don't use 1440p ultrawide so it's not helpful for me.
Yes, a lot of people using the xiaomi monitor. But then a lot more people using traditional 16:9 4K or 2K monitor, like the S2721DGF which is everyone favorite, is a 27' 2K monitor.
And finally, the very first thing I come up is to add 2 columns for 4k and 2k p/p. Then after that, I only said "if" it looks messy, then consider removing the 3K.
3k fetish lol
The reason behind the 3k is to also average out the 1440p and 4k performance, as some of the cards seem to perform comparatively better at 1440p than 4k and vice versa. Most people that are buying these sorts of cards I do expect are at 1440p at this stage and looking at 4k (or 1440p or 4k ultrawide) in their next monitor so are interested in something in between.
Also, you can work out your own $ per frame for each of the columns using basic math. I'll make you a deal, if you get 20 votes for your comment, I'll remove the 3k fetish columns and I'll do a 1440p $ per frame and 4k $ per frame on future postings. I'll even allow you to post your suggestion a few more times on subsequent tables I post and if any of them gets above 20 ill concede. :-) I'm interested in making it as useful as it can be, so happy to add more if people agree its helpful, but don't want it too confusing to look at.
is it too late to change my name to "3k fetish"?

I understand your first sentence: cards can perform better on 4k than 2k and vice versa. But then the "average, in between" logic from you is weird, though I understand it. Let's saying that a person decide to buy the S2721DGF for 6 months, then they upgrade to the 4k G3223Q and use it for 6 months. Only in this situation, averaging 2k and 4k to 3K is reasonable, cause you spend the same time on both monitors. But in reality, like 99% people will use the upgraded monitors for a lot longer. Take the same example above, it's more realistic for a person using the S2721DGF for like 6-9 months, upgrade to G3223Q and using it like 2-3 years. Then your "average" formula isn't correct anymore, because it should be weighted more on the 4k monitor rather the 2k. Assume that you know this, how can you know the exact number to correct the formula, since usage time ratio between current monitor/next monitor is unknown? I'm not even taking account that we are averaging two "random" 2K vs 4K monitors, without taking other factors in. For instance, M27Q vs M28U or M32Q vs M32U seems to be fair, cause the pairs are nearly identical and only the resolution is a notable difference. But then if we have a pair like S2721DGF vs G3223Q, does it looks okay? Probably not. IMO, avg FPS for 2K/4K is already a bit generalization, since the same resolution with different monitor size will produce different results. Now we even add an average 3K step to make things complicated.

is it too late to change my name to "3k fetish"?"
I know that I can work out on my own p/p, but you decide to put the 3K p/p so I, a person using both 2K and 4K monitors at one time is wondering "but why not 2K p/p or 4K p/p?" That's why I suggest adding the 2 columns, and "if" the table looks messy, consider remove the 3K columns with the whole paragraph I wrote above as the reason.
I think the discussion is a bit negative here, and I'm really sad about it. Through out my first comment, I mentioned several times how I appreciate your table.
I'm not a native English speaker, so the "fetish" part maybe a bit offensive for you, but trust me I'm just joking and didn't think about that much. If it's indeed offensive then I'm sorry. But then again the whole "deal" thing and you "allow" me to post my suggestion is a bit harsh, don't you agree? This is a community forum, I only voiced my thought about your table and give my own opinion about it. If you don't like it, just ditch it. If you don't want to see my comment, report/hide option is there. One last time, I appreciate your effort to make the table, sorry that my opinion os kinda negative to you.
I don't know why I wrote a 100 words comment, and your focus is "3k fetish" which can be ignored as it's irrelevant to my explanation. Then it becomes a "who get more vote is right" competition for just a suggestion? Guess I have enough time on OzBargain.
@Masticccc: No offence felt on this side and no offence intended in response, all good buddy and I take everyone’s suggestions seriously and appreciate yours and your thanks too. I’m likely gonna mock up the table with both $ per frames and will consider it for future editions.
Thanks again for the suggestion.
@Masticccc: lots of triggered nerds/advertising money here on ozb just ignore them lol
@Masticccc: TL, DR :)
rmh is the hero of all of these video card deals, appreciate your work!
Thanks conza, feel free to tag me in future gpu deals if I miss them.
you need to post deals like briefcase dude, not just post the table…
its the deal that matters lol
@non-LHR: is OzB hiring? lol
Backplate is useless
useful to throw it to barking neighbour's dog…
