Nvidia's RTX Super Founders Editions makess a mockery of early RTX pricing

Nvidia's early Founders Edition prices don't look good in hindsight.



Read more about Nvidia's RTX Super series pricing.

Navi will have to drop in price. Sure, £379 for a 2060 is bad, but then so were Navi prices for the same performance.

It would be nice, for once, if AMDs prices were literally to make Nvidia show their hand. I know, that's far too optimistic.....

We'll see. Either way I'm not interested in any of them. I think a Titan XP and Vega 64 are more than enough.

Do we have GBP prices for Navi? I thought that 2060-S pricing is $50 above the 5700 and $20 below the 5700XT?

The RTX customers have been taken for a ride, they clearly could have released the originals at a lower price if they can release a "super" version at nearly half the price less than a year later.
Great way to make your loyal customers feel appreciated. Watch AMD play on this like they did with the whole 970 saga.... This is why you should never support a monopoly.

Tbf GDDR6 pricing has came down a lot since Turing's launch(It was almost double GDDR5 per GB ) and 14nm is now super mature. I think anyone who bought an original Turing knows that tech gets cheaper over time. But if you'd bought one recently, yeah that would sting, these cards came out of nowehere. I think the RTX2060 price/perf was close to their limits(A chip that size is stretching it in a price point that low), but obviously above that they have and still are milking their position.

No UK pricing yet. US pricing is $379 for the RX 5700 and $449 for the RX 5700 XT.

nvidia milking the fanyboys.... tell us something new.

i had only nvidia GPUs for a decade or so.

it´s just that nvidia works better with the software i use (cuda is a plus).


but these latest RTX card prices are just such a bad oke.

Actually no. Manufacturing process is more mature now. They will have much better yields with the new batch of cards, and it is expected for them to be less expensive.

And yet the previous cards also were on the same manufacturing process and previous batches would have benefited from the reduced cost. Yet the prices remained the same. It's a terrible argument. It's just Nvidia price gouging.
