AMD's Radeon Navi RX 3080 XT is rumoured to challenge the RTX 2070 for $330

Is AMD taking the fight to Nvidia with aggressive pricing?



Read more about AMD's rumoured $330 RX 3080 XT graphics card.

That sounds quite reasonable really, matching RTX2070 in perf & perf/watt but at a lower cost thanks to 7nm, these dies must be tiny by recent GPU standards but I'd guess AMD are still pushing them out of their optimum perf/watt curve for these SKUs.

These would be great news. The dilemma is to get it as soon as posible or wait until 2020 for Navi refresh or next-gen.

Great price point but I have a GTX 1080, so it wouldn't offer anything to me. Shame too.

The thing is....

Basically this is supposed to be around the same as the 2070. In what? DX11? DX12? because the Vega 56 is as good as the 2070 in DX12 and you can get one now for £250. So this card is cheaper for AMD to produce and it's going to cost $330?

I almost can't believe that "mid range" is now £300+. Not only that, but low end cards are really low end now. I was looking through a PC mag from 2010 or so the other day and when the Radeon 5870 launched you could get a 4870 for £110. Which to all intents and purposes was a high end card, if you were willing to sacrifice a tiny bit of DX11 in Dirt 2.

I also now own a PS4 rookie edition (didn't get the Pro) and the graphics on it are very good indeed. Easily as good as any "mid range" card. Hell, my XB1X does things mid range PCs can't. This gap will only decrease as the next gen of consoles arrive too. It kinda makes it really very hard to even want to bother. I got my PS4 with 4 games (two of which are £50 each) for £279. What can you get for that in PC terms? a mid range GPU with nothing else.

Crazy. The world has gone mad. How is it that Sony and Microsoft can make an entire gaming system based on X86 for less than the cost of a mid range GPU? you get about four times the amount of materials, plastic, a hard drive and god knows what else.

Also, 2070 is pretty horrible in price to performance compared to 2060.

I'm sure it won't be quite so bad for long after this comes out.

Be interesting to see how many Radeon 7 owners AMD burn if they release a higher end Navi this year to replace it only 6 or so months after its release.

With a 1080ti since launch then I am still pretty sorted.... would maybe pick something up to replace a PC that I am selling now (7600k + 1070).

Dependes on price.

You say that, but Intel didn't get the kind of skewering that many expected when they replaced Kaby Lake with higher clocked 6-core Coffee Lake processors less than a year later with a new socket, no upgrade options for Z270 and a similar price tag (assuming you got in early before prices increased).
