They already had them for pre-order notices lol, they've got your address and mobile numbers now. :P (Luckily I've ordered with them...

I can imagine the PLE staff running across the warehouse to grab it and slap into a parcel before the customer realised their mistake.

And it's $1229. The answer is price gouging, EVGA is not participating in anti-competitive practices.

Because you can get the overpriced / inferior ones anywhere else, EVGA was only sold at RRP at PLE.
18/09/2020 - 16:25
Yeah of course, but we ain't getting the FE. :P

The "Ultra" is yet again only $30 more, so it could just as easily be in highest demand. Hence why I want a poll. :P

I wonder if we can get a poll to work out what cards everyone bought, maybe there's 4000 orders of the EVGA XC3 Black or the FTW3 Ultra?...
18/09/2020 - 11:27
Nah, they charged my credit card the full amount. I assume they stopped taking payments as they'd be sitting on several millions of...

XC3 Black = Base clock, no backplate. XC3 = Base clock. XC3 Ultra = +45Mhz base clock (and tested). FTW3 = +45Mhz base clock (and tested),...

First review is in, it's "slightly" worse than the FE on the performance front, but equivalent cooling and much quieter....

EVGA is also the best add-in vendor by a mile.
18/09/2020 - 00:56
I got email / text and it charged my card. No ship dates or anything like that though. Fortunately I've dealt with PLE in the past so I'm...

If you have to ask here, stick to indexes.

This is the cheapest 3080 you're going to see for a while, deal or not.

Grabbed it for family member at Lenovo AU, didn't need the 16GB and the AU warranty is a big plus, thanks for the tip! :)

It's a $45 stick of ram, just put it in yourself. Edit: Not sure if you can actually, the original 8GB is soldered.

Now a raffle, please move to forums so I win. :D

Benchmarks aren't released yet, the rumoured benchmarks suggest it's pretty damn good.
15/09/2020 - 18:28
The manual states it supports any combination of 4, 8, 16 GB sticks and there's two slots.
15/09/2020 - 15:26
19th for the coupon, unsure about the other one.
15/09/2020 - 14:12
100% but if you're going to play games on this device at all, the $120 upgrade is probably worthwhile. A gaming laptop might not be...

Is the only difference the CPU? Edit: It seems to be the case. I will agree with you, except that the onboard gpu component is marginally...
