"There are some really good deals on the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20 series cards such as the RTX 2060 which can be bought for as low as £299.99 or £30 cheaper than what it was originally being sold for. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 is listed for as low as £419.99 which is also a £30 drop in price. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 is down to £599.99 which is a £60 drop in price compared to what it was selling at previously. Finally, there’s the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti which is down to £979.99 from £998.99 so not a huge drop on the flagship card but still a decent one. Following are some of the deals mentioned over at OCUK:"

Well, it would be nice if I could buy the 999 priced 2080TI from evga.... I keep submitting my OOS notification, and in as little as 30 minutes when I see the notification, its already OOS.

If those Euro's convert directly to US dollars, then things are headed in the right direction.

A $300 RTX 2060 would be a downright good deal for a lot of people.

$400 RTX 2070/ $500 2080/ $650 2080ti and baby you got a stew going!

But that's not happening anytime soon...

All those PhD economists Amazon hires probably wanted to test their True Price™ AI evaluation algorithm. The neural net was trained with competitive pricing from the last decade though, so it turns out it's slightly biased towards consumers. Project was terminated.

Its pounds, it's a British website. So essentially its worthless info, British hardware is always more expensive than EU hardware and even more expensive than US hardware. EU has some ridiculous taxes and fees on hardware, so we always get screwed with much higher prices. Thank your EU governments for favoring high taxes. It's all of us who end up paying for it by being forced to buy more expensive products and then people wonder why their standard of living is falling. Look no further!

Still way too high. Wake me up when we get back to pre-crypto sane prices please.

Anecdotally, speaking with Micro Center staff friends and Fry's manager here in DFW, the 1660/1660ti/2060 have all been superb sellers. 2070 and 2080 have been anemic to disastrous, while the 2080ti holds up fairly well as a 'halo' luxury product.

I think moving to a 2060ti / 2070ti /2080+ revision that is $299, $399, $549 could really give uplift to their sales. I think, as said before, that the very lengthy timeframe that 10xx (and even upper 980/980ti) have been available has left a lot of buyers with $300-$600ish with nothing compelling to buy.

Yeah the big kicker that at a given price there is almost no movement in performance. So you are either a new buyer or you are deciding you need to spend a bunch more than your last card and jumping up to the 2080ti. I think Nvidia thought RT would be a killer feature and might have been if they had a really killer app that made it worth it and they would get more high end upgrades even if the general performance was more of a side grade. But I think this gen they really gutted their upgrade cycle buyers.

After missing in stock notifications from EVGA for about 3 months, I finally snagged one of the $999 Black 2080ti's a couple of weeks ago. It is expensive, but I got a good price for my old 1080Ti when I sold it last summer. So far I have had EVGA 780Ti, 980Ti, 1080Ti and now got the 2080Ti, this may be my last one as I am getting kinda old.

Old ? I am 65, and just bought 5, maybe 6 of the 2080TI's

Should be interesting to see how AMD reacts to any price drops on the 2080 or 2080Ti. Radeon VII won't look so good after that point.

I kind of doubt they respond at all.

Vega 7 is an oddball that is really really good for some pro uses, but not overly impressive or efficient for gamers. Given how expensive it is to produce, I bet they'd just sit on the price through EOL while they trickle to pro buyers, and the bigger plan for gamers is Navi.

That's possible. $699 likely doesn't leave AMD with a lot of profit margin. It's undoubtedly more expensive to produce Radeon VII than, say, RTX 2080. Radeon VII is priced where it is due to its relative proximity in performance to RTX 2080 (stock; personally I think Radeon VII is the better deal once you do some tweaking to both cards). NV has more wiggle room when it comes to lowering prices.

I doubt NV price moves will affect Navi since launch products probably won't eclipse $250 (and may not even hit that price level). If NV actually lowers 1660Ti prices, Navi prices might have to launch a bit lower, but it's hard to say. 1660Ti is probably not in need of a major price drop.
