    Hah, I laugh at those prices.
    I wish RTX 2080 was $800 here too...in Hungary the cheapest RTX 2080 preorder is for the EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 XC GAMING for 291.000 HUF which is $1040...yes, $1040 for the non TI RTX 2080...
    As for the RTX 2080 Ti, so far the Inno3D GeForce RTX 2080Ti TWIN X2 is the cheapest preorder for $1530.
    Wan't to hear another joke? The minimum wage here is 50% lower than in the US, but dedicated fans are still preordering these cards even with these insane prices.
    Prices will probably fall after release, but still, they will be much higher than the US retail price.
    So if you see that $800 pricetag, don't forget that many of us have to pay more than $1000 for the same item.

    Are there any news on when they are going to release the benchmarks? Would love to see the comparison between the 1080

    Here's some more context and contrast between Nvidia series releases:

    Founders Farce: How Nvidia is delegitimizing their MSRP
    Overlord Gaming
    Published on Aug 30, 2018
    Nvidia has priced their reference Founders editions hundreds of dollars above their own MSRP specifications. This video explores the inflationary effect this has had on aftermarket, custom cooled cards.

    I don’t see an issue here at all. Nvidia reaps a higher margin off their FE edition cards which don’t historically sell as well as the aftermarket ones. If they want to sell above MSRP to increase their margins on the early adopters, and everyone is happy, who cares? If you want a good deal and don’t want to pay inflated FE prices, wait for the partner boards.

    The problem is the FE sets the starting prices for most of the AIB partner boards. And, then the AIB prices float up and up and up from there...

    There are / were only a sprinkling of sku's with less than FE priced AIB partner series 10 boards. So far there is only 1 Zotac 2080 for $749, the rest are all above $825. There are no 2080ti boards for less than FE.

    That Zotac 2080 for $749 is out of stock on newegg, right now there is only a single GPU for $789 most are higher priced 2080 GPU's over $825:
    https://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007709 50001315 50001312 50001314 50001402 50001471 50012150&IsNodeId=1&Description=2080 gpu&bop=And&Order=PRICE&PageSize=36

    This started with Pascal, as you saw Nvidia making excuses for in the video - and the media at the event calling them on their BS reasons for raising the prices - you did watch the whole video, right?

    Here's a chart with price comparisons and percentage increases from last gen 10 series to the 20 series:

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX Series Prices Up To 71% Higher Than Previous Gen

    "NVIDIA revealed the SEP prices of its GeForce RTX 20-series, and it's a bloodbath in the absence of competition from AMD. The SEP price is the lowest price you'll be able to find a custom-design card at. NVIDIA is pricing its reference design cards, dubbed "Founders Edition," at a premium of 10-15 percent. These cards don't just have a better (looking) cooler, but also slightly higher clock speeds.

    The GeForce RTX 2070 is where the lineup begins, for now. This card has an SEP pricing of USD $499. Its Founders Edition variant is priced at $599, or a staggering 20% premium. You'll recall that the previous-generation GTX 1070 launched at $379, with its Founders Edition at $449.

    The GeForce RTX 2080, which is the posterboy of this series, starts at $699, with its Founders Edition card at $799. The GTX 1080 launched at $599, with $699 for the Founders Edition.

    Leading the pack is the RTX 2080 Ti, launched at $999, with its Founders Edition variant at $1,199. The GTX 1080 Ti launched at $699, for the Founders Edition no less."

    fishy behavior..by NVIDIA...but not unexpected.....Please check Linus input after the 43 minute mark on NVIDIA only letting certain reviewers review and benchmark the new RTX cards....before official launch to everyone...........but its kewl.....i guess.......looking at it from their perspective...

    I am in no hurry to jump in, so waiting for a bunch of people to get their shipping retail hardware is fine with me.

    Yeesh... How much punishment are early adopters willing to take?

    I mean, I guess I understand if your pockets are deep enough and you sneeze at $1200. But for most people that's a significant investment. Personally, I'm waiting till things get more reasonable.

    I will end up with a laptop with an RTX 2080. Delivered to me at a low price, so none of this matters.
