All RTX 3090 Models/Prices at UK Retailers - Are retailers hiking up prices?

GPUs are out of stock, but are pre-order prices extortionate?



Read more about Nvidia's RTX 3090 pre-order prices.

I know OCUK keep putting prices up slowly but surely on the 3080's, Sole reason I will not buy GPU's from them anymore.

As much crud as OCUK gets for doing that, most other retailers are doing the same. I just checked a lot of RTX 3080 models and Box uk has higher prices for all of them.

It's a sellers market ATM, and buyers are willing to pay the extra money. It's market forces at work, plain and simple.

More like PC Gamer stupidity.


No one has any self control or patience these days.


Me? I'm just letting it all wash over me, laughing at the idiots being taken for a ride.



Maybe if I fancy one, I'll take a mosey on over to the Nvidia store next year in Feb/Mar time and pick a card up at my leisure with none of this pre-order wait time nonsense or any of the self induced stress and anxiety that new GPU launches seem to induce in people

In addition, why would anyone order now? Too late to have a reasonable delivery or launch prices, too early for supply to arrive and drive prices back to a reasonable level.
To make it as polarising as possible, the price hike could be called an idiot tax.

I'm quite happy rocking my 1080Ti Mk2 (FE 2080 to your average layman) on a 1440p 144Hz panel for now, if I choose to unburden my bank account it will be around March/April after the dust has settled and the AMD offerings have safely landed.

I'll then make an informed decision based apon my own needs rather than ego, sorry is that to much of a common sense approach?

No, because you might end up spending money on {PRODUCT}.

I ordered a 3080 on launch day at MSRP. Looks like delivery will be around 15/10.

Are prices likely to go back down on increase?
