    There's a lot of people with the cash to burn that just want the best. But those people are the minority. I could easily buy one many times over but there's no way I'm spending that much on a graphics card, I want to retire at some point lol. TBH a lot of people are going to just be waiting until October for the 3070 or even looking forward to 3050 and 3060. I'm guessing we probably won't see a card without RT in this gen.

    Even the 2080Ti is going to be a good used buy if they end up staying lower than the $499 they are asking for the 3070. By the looks of EBay they are still going for $600-750 which seems crazy, you'll be able to get a 3080 for about that much soon.

    Yup, that's me, waiting for a 3070 because that looks like its price-to-performance ratio will make it the best value. I could buy something higher, but I don't see there being enough benefit. And I'm still keeping my fingers crossed that AMD might soon announce an even better deal than the 3070.

    3080 has better price-to-performance ratio than 3070. It has 48% more CUDA cores, 70% more memory bandwidth, and 2GB more VRAM while costing 40% more.

    Do you guys think the reason there is no 3080ti is because NVDIA is reserving it just in case AMDs BIg Navi beats 3080? It seems that team green is following the release path of the GTX series.

    It's definitely a strategy. They can't launch too many products at once. There's a few reasons for that. I'm guessing the 3090 is priced more than 2x the cost of the 3080 simply due to yield. Any chip that doesn't make it as a 3090 is just used with disabled parts of the arch as a 3080. I'm guessing 3070 yield is probably decent and they will launch a 3060 or 3070 Super/Ti when they build up enough silicon for those depending on yield. I can't see them launching a 3070Ti with just 8GB more memory as has been rumored, there has to be more to it than that at 3070 performance levels. You only really need the memory for going above 1440p realistically.

    There's always multiple reasons: yields, marketing strategy, competitive analysis, revenue potential. They know what they are doing, and they know there's a segment that will overspend on the 3090 to have THE BEST, doesn't matter if it's more than 2x the cost of the 3080. Pricing on the 3070/3080 seems reasonable and probably driven by how much they know about what AMD is going to do.

    EDIT: Oh, I forgot they are also leaving room for a 3080Ti/Super.. obviously..

    I should have said the 3070 likely has the "best value" for folks who don't want to break the bank--supposedly beating 2080ti performance for less than half the price, and having a much more reasonable energy cost compared to the 3080 and 3090. Still, it's possible the 3080 will have a better ratio. Either way, I'd wait for the benchmarks to make sure, since everything is mostly guesswork until they come out.

    With 3090 at $1500 they have made room for 3080 Ti at $1000/1200 depending on how “Big Navi” Radeon graphics do it. Same also between 3070 and 3080. Perfect strategy to keep average prices up.
