Retailers In Europe Hike Prices Of The Upcoming NVIDIA RTX 3060 Up To $853

NVIDIA's upcoming RTX 3060 was an excellent value proposition. With 3584 CUDA cores, its performance was firmly positioned between the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti, and the $329 MSRP made it one of the best bang for buck cards around. Unfortunately for gamers, GPUs in 2021 remains a pipedream for most. Some European retailers […]

Well I can't really blame them. The demand is there and it's limited stock so prices are going up.

What I do have a problem with is that they went beyond doubling the price. Seems kind of like a low blow

Lol the gpu market is way too insane. I just gave up and bought a 30 series laptop. Really wanted to build my very first pc without having to drop tons of money for scalpers....

Gave up as well and bought 18€ GT710 1GB, and sold 3070 twice and 3080 once, and 5700xt once. The 30-series has unbearable amount of coil whine, and could not find a model without one. So I’m waiting the prices to come down and maybe grab an rtx 3060 closer to it’s msrp. I made my money back, from all the purchases and maybe a slight profit per card (like 30-40€ each, but always had to buy another one that was more expensive, until I eventually sold that with the same price I got it.) I sold 5700xt at a loss, but got my money back from the other cards. I just wanted 30-40% performance on top of my 5700xt, a silent card, but it all went to an upgrade hell. Now, some people are selling rtx 3070 at 1800€ here now, it’s insanity.

I have Switch, PS1-PS4 Pro, Vita, 3DS to play with and PC games up to year 2002 or so that still run ok. Once the chip draught is over I’ll play again on PC. Until then, the world can keep its overpriced GPUs!!!

I anticipated the shortages when the Pandemic first hit, and China was locking everything down, and welding the doors shut on peoples homes. That's why I built a new PC last February, and ended up getting an RTX 2080 Super. I knew the 3000 series would have a huge performance increase over the 2000 series, but I didn't want to get caught trying to buy a new GPU/CPU during the coming shortages.

Even with how awesome the 3000 series looks, especially the RTX 3060 TI for the price, it really doesn't matter, because they're sold out everywhere anyway, and people could be looking at the end of summer or the fall before they end up getting their hands on the GPU of their choice.

I hope the cryptocurrency mining bubble blows up soon. This is getting ridiculous...
