I probably won't buy a 3090, but there is definitely a market for a $1500+ halo card that is clearly much faster than anything else (unlike the Titans). I expect them to sell out quickly even at marked up prices. Lots of people are stuck at home these days with nowhere else to spend their money, and there is high demand for anything related to PC gaming. Even if AMD has a real competitor, they will charge high prices for it too.I keep thinking about the 3090 and "why now".
It just doesn't feel right for them to release such a huge power sucking card without another motive.
- Is it that there are trying to move the whole product stack up a price bracket?
- Or is it that they know where RDNA2 is landing and they needed to do this to ensure that they still have the halo card?
