    Before Christmas I'll build my new machine which will be a beast (I7 9700K or 9900K with RTX 2080 TI). Hopefully here in France we will not suffers for Trump decisions, at least on that topic.

    I think brexit has a bad future for the UK where pricing is involved :(

    Not for long. Leaving the EU means we can import from countries outside the EU such as the Far East, the US, Australia, India etc etc without monetary or volume restrictions.

    In a few years we'll see the benefits of this through cheaper electronic equipment, cars etc.

    In the meantime the German car industry in particular is shitting bricks.

    These negotiations are a game of chicken but unfortunately this government couldn't organise a piss up in a brewery and we've seen from this Chequers deal that they're prepared to blink first.

    So basically by the time the 2200 cards are released we should benefit from cheaper imports from Japan in particular.

    I can't help thinking that the prices of new high-end Nvidia cards are somewhat artificial - that is, Nvidia takes what they can. When GeForce 3 was launched it was state of the art - most advanced gpu ever - a lot of the fastest ram available. Has anything really changed? Would Nvidia be able to make a profit selling 2080 Ti for $599? Maybe we'll never know - but I'm not sure that it's much more expensive to make a high-end video card today than it was 15 years ago, of course current gpus are more complicated, but the factories have evolved too... 
    Intel i7 7700K (4.5 GHz); MSI GeForce GTX 1080 8GB Gaming X (oc 2100 MHz gpu boost, 11 GHz mem speed); 16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3200 MHz; MSI Z270I Gaming Pro Carbon AC (VR-Ready) mainboard; Samsung 960 Evo M.2 SSD + Toshiba P300 HD; Windows 10 OS; Valve Index and Oculus Rift CV1 - the latter nearly always using super sampling 2.0.

    Good question. I'd love to know the overhead for producing one card but I'm sure the prices are higher because of the new tech and I bet a lot of components are out sourced. So in short I reckon there is a LOT of different suppliers to pay.

    hmmmmmmmmmmmmm now the dust has settled and i am over the shock i am beginning to regret not sticking in a pre-order for a 2080ti.

    i can still pre-order a 2080 vanilla for the same £715.50 of announcement day (albeit far more restricted on brand and shop basically the asus one from ebuyer)

    but the 2080ti has gone up a minumum of £50 unless i want the crappy blower.
    does anyone have a link for a pre-order for the 2080ti for £1050?  on announcement day i think MSI duke as well as Asus and gigabyte had ones at this price,, they are at least £50 more now :(

    2080Ti FE is officially out of stock. I fear a mining craze coming up :| Ughhhh We can't have nice things.

    Seems Bitcoin price is levelling off at a third of it's December peak, I'm hoping that's low enough to make mining with these cards unprofitable. I think price rises right now may just be down to supply and demand.

    I'm keeping an eye on system prices and availability with RTX cards too as they may prove to be a good option but just pre-orders being taken for now.

    My preferred store Umart has just gotten the Gigabyte RTX 2080 for $1349au (or $1399au for the slightly higher overclock Gaming model). That's $979us.
    It's only $10 more than my Threadripper cpu.

    My 1080 back in 2016 was $1169au. Looking at the historic exchange rates, on the day I bought it the price would have been $899us.

    Somebody shout loud if they see a reference 2080 Ti available in a UK webstore. If I don't buy one soon, I'll spend the money on something useless. Like the mortgage.

    I've been thinking the reference cards are the same design as the founders... just really like the look of them. Would I be wrong there?

    Yes, FE cards are only sold by Nvidia, you won't see that outer design anywhere else, when they say "reference" design it's the PCB and power delivery/memory layout, not the chasis. At the moment ALL third party cards are reference design, we wont see custom designs (custom power delivery, layout, additional sensors etc) for at least 6 months as the card makers have not had enough time.

    OK I got confused, my Titan is an EVGA card but has the same case/fan as the Nvidia direct purchase cards so I thought that's what they meant by reference design rather than the PCB alone.
