It seems like we'll get:

The new Ampere-based GeForce RTX 3000 series cards will reportedly offer more VRAM on all cards, so we could see: 

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 - 12GB 
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 - 12GB 
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti - 16GB.


Maybe reduced power consumption due to 7nm. And maybe the best - if it's true:

NVIDIA is reportedly set to offer its next-gen GeForce RTX 3000 serieds at cheaper prices than the current-gen GeForce RTX 2000 series, which would be interesting. NVIDIA faced considerable backlash with the pricing on its GeForce RTX 2000 series, even though they still sold like hotcakes a price reduction is always welcome.

So glad to see that prices have started to get sensible again. Overclockers now have a 10GB 3080 available for £839.99 😯😎

 

Can't afford to get one right now, I'll get a new GPU in November or December. Either an NVidia 3080, 4080, 4070Ti or maybe an AMD RX 7800. By the sounds of it AMD have decided to compete with NVidia again in terms of power. About bloody time!

 

I'm going to have around £700 or so to spend, don't want to go much higher than that.

That 3080 price has been cut even further now. Went down to £818.99 (bit of a weird price lol) and has now gone down even further to £799.99. Linkage here if you fancy buying one:

The company KFA2 is a sister company of Palit, my 1080 is a Palit GPU and I've been very happy with it. Won't be long before it comes down to around £700 or so, maybe even a couple of months.

 

The proof of stake change to Etherium has been delayed AGAIN by another couple of months, was supposed to be June but now it's looking like September or maybe even October. Once this does eventually happen it'll make GPUs even less attractive to miners so we'll see prices drop even faster than they have been for the last month or so.

 

I'm still going to wait until November or December before I get a new GPU though. Seems a bit pointless buying one right now when there are new GPUs releasing from all three players later this year.

Just got back from a vacation and saw that Nividia has initiated a rather large price cut - seems effective in many shops already:

 

https://www.techpowerup.com/296824/nvidia-to-introduce-official-high-end-rtx-30-series-price-cuts

 

Quote: "NVIDIA is working with its board partners to introduce price-cuts for the higher-end of its GeForce RTX 30-series "Ampere" graphics cards, in addition to game bundles. This would see the flagship GeForce RTX 3090 Ti drop in price from $1,999 to $1,499, a 25% price-cut. The RTX 3090 (non-Ti) sees its price cut from $1,499 down to $1,299, or a 13.3% cut. The RTX 3080 Ti slides from $1,199 down to $1,099, an 8.3% cut. The RTX 3080 12 GB will finally be available at or below its MSRP of $799, while remaining inventories of the original RTX 3080 10 GB sticks to $699."

 

A 25% price cut may be the equivalent of having to sell one kidney instead of two, as some dude wrote in a post, but at least it's the right way prices are going.

EVGA just cut prices for the 3090 Ti with a massive $1,000:

- but beware with the 3090 Ti, it may not work with hmds using a DisplayPort:

Normal 3090 cards don't have this issue.

@RuneSR2  Ya, 3090's are down locally about aud$1,000 compared to when I bought mine ~19 months ago (~aud$2,000 vs $3,000).  I don't feel too bad since I've had soooo much fun with this gpu during that time.  I'm still planning on riding out the 4000 series and will look at a large overall pc upgrade with the 5000 series but you never know, lol!  Cheers,

Honestly 4000 series will still be wasted unless tv/monitors really make headway with higher refresh and higher resolutions.  Seriously 4k displays out there are really 200 to 120 hz, 8k if you have the cash are not widely available.
