I bought into RTX last year and was quite satisfied with their 2060. Recently I got into VR and while for the most part it performs much better than expected, in certain cases (DCS Im looking at you) it doesnt do it justice unless you turn off most of the eye-candy.

So before I jump back into the fray, im definitely waiting for what AMD has in store. I was surprised that Nvidia has priced their cards this aggressively, which can mean one of two things. They got some intel that AMD's next graphics cards are actually NOT gonna suck for the first time in decades OR they are going to be releasing a lot of Ti, or Super versions or whatever down the line.

To think I've had 7 flawless years with my old HD5850. Not a single driver hickup. It's now in a buddy's computer and even after 4 years without driver support, it still chugs along without problems with it's 2016 driver and plays pretty much whatever he throws at it on Win7, including emulators, often dreaded by AMD GPU owners.

It's not that they can't do decent driver support... I really wonder what happened to fuck up their record after such a flawless streak, cuts in the driver department perhaps?

AMD still fucking the chicken on those Windows drivers:

I wish I could tell you that was happening on my 5000-series product...but I can't. So I guess "the chicken" is safe, eh?...;)

No, it isn't, because it is mostly definitely happening on my 5700Xt under Windows 10.
So let me get this right, you're saying that the issue that they say they are having is actually the issue that you're having.
Wow, that's mind-boggling in so many ways.
I hope amd's next gpu is halfway decent so I don't have to buy Nvidia to go along with my new AMD CPU.

Financial institutions are required to file a form reporting any transaction or series of related transactions in which the total sum is $10,000 or more.
I doubt much laundering is happening.

Plus we are seeing on eBay people selling the cards for 10K.

Either people with more dollars in their bank account than functional brain cells, or money laundering on a huge scale, one of the two. Or both.

I don't get what's going on with that. There are cards on eBay with dozens of bids and currently sat at over £50,000 ($64,000). Is it fraud / money laundering or just really rich people that must have it now?

If they spend that sort of money for a 3d card they won't be "rich" for very long...;) I think money laundering is more likely!
I hear it's sweeney trying to get them all to sell as exclusives!

I just want to know which GPU (provided you have a strong CPU) will hold 1440p/60Hz Cyberpunk 2077 with ray tracing, DLSS, etc. and 1440p/144Hz in Warzone/PUBG.

Maybe people are purposely bidding very high with no intention of paying. As an FU to the seller who can't sell it until it is relisted.

This morning I got a blurb from NewEgg...."Come see the new 3080's from nVidia!"--then it said "see availability"...;) Availability was, predictably, "out of stock"--no reviews-- on all four GPUS they had featured. That's really exciting, there, NewEgg...;) If you have none to sell, why bother?

Downloaded and installed 20.9.1's yesterday. Will be waiting on the RX-6000-series from AMD next month. Zen 3, then RDNA 2--should be a fun October!

It was a complete shit show this morning tiring to get a card. A friend of mine tried like hell, but ended up with pages cant be loaded and similar crap like that.

Plus we are seeing on eBay people selling the cards for 10K.

NVidia should have put an end to that kind of manipulation and scalping.

Glad I got a 2080 Super, I can wait this shit show out.
