I'm hoping for a 3080 Ti with 16GB of memory release in Feb. Oh and hoping I can actually obtain one!
3080 Ti? RRP $999 - buy it (not just from scalpers, but also from common webstores) for just $1,399 - and this being the cheapest price.

Let's face it - this is not a free market, this is a crooked market.

It's actually classic free market. This is what happens when demand outstrips supply.

*cough*intentionally created by manufacturer*cough*

True, but not intentionally IMO, otherwise they'd have charged $1500 as MSRP. Nvidia is an incredibly successful multi-billion dollar company. They do their market research.

Nope. Not true at all. nVidia are always selling their own FE cards at MSRP from their own store and they are also enforcing their MSRP on those dealers who sell FE cards. The RTX 3080 FE may rarely be available but it's always $699.99 at BestBuy. Go check.

As far as the board partners are concerned, nVidia just supplies the GPUs and does not have any influence on the prices of the final product. The board partners have their own MSRPs and they have no influence on what the distributors and dealers do with the cards. The cards that are selling now have been manufactured many weeks or months ago. The prices we are seeing for AIB cards are no fault of nVidia, probably no fault of the board partners but all the way the fault of the distributors and greedy dealers who try to make a buck from the supply vs. demand situation. Same for AMD, of course.
I was referring to eBay, not the vendors.

You're not fooling anyone. You want it for MineCraft.
I went on a big MC binge at the start of the pandemic, so it'll be a while before I jump back in. That said, RTX MC looks absolutely gorgeous, even more so with hi rez texture packs. But with a 1080ti currently, it will be hard to justify an upgrade.

I think it's board partners' job to maximize profit too, they set their MSRP but segments product lineup up and down to produce higher end, more expensive SKUs the difference between them being in most cases slightly overclocked bios. Gigabyte did it with introducing Aorus Master and MSI with their Suprim. So they certainly contribute to the MSRP being inflated further from the FE pricing. Also I think they're producing more 3090s than 3080s given limited resources as the cards share a lot of parts in layout and sell out anyways, contributing to the scarcity of the more affordable but less profitable 3080s.

I really hope we see the next level of protest from the techtuber community with a straight up boycott of nVidia product reviews. They rely on them for so much free advertising and hype building, it's an ethical quandry, but IMO it has to be done. Either the techtuber community will band together and flex on nVidia, or big green has proven they'll just run over them.

Why are techtubers needing to punish NVidia exactly?

I hope they only talk about ray tracing and not raster performance since 1% of games on Steam support ray tracing. That's what gamers really want. They want to enable RTX features and tank their frame rate. I'm excited.

I hope they keep only talk about how they're losing ground to AMD but still charging a lot more for their hardware. Wry

Well, as "WE" all know, "US" gamers only care about the latest tech from nVidia especially when they're only available on 15 PC titles out of 100,000+. And obviously ANYONE talking about general rasterized performance should be dragged into the street and beaten with clubs.

I really hope we see the next level of protest from the techtuber community with a straight up boycott of nVidia product reviews.

Fuck I can't wait for AMD to keep the pressure up with the Navi 3x.
