2080 TI Black 1429$ cheapest in CAN

Deal Link:
Price:
1429.99
Savings:
150$
Retailer:
Newegg.ca
price is 1,429.99$ for this card. In USA the card cost 1099.99$ which is around 1 455,68$CAD

Since i'm from Quebec I only pay 5% tax from newegg. I paid 1429.99 + 5% tax - 1% ebates = 1487$ + i get anthem and BF5 codes which i will sell on some website.

Only get this card If you want a 2080ti because it is REPLACEMENT ONLY. There is no refund available from newegg.

The card is alright, I didn't need other fancy fan or triple fans option with this. I get 70celcius on gaming and 35celcius idle.

It's technically a discount, but somehow I still feel ripped off.

That's a great price, considering I paid $1299 for a 1080ti last year.

How is paying 25% more for just about 10 - 20% performance on top "A great price"? I can understand it is still the best we can do but I can't call it "Great".

It's a great price, considering I nearly paid the same for a 1080ti.

I mean compared to other 2080ti sure this is a very decent deal, best deal out of 2080ti. That is mostly it.

The performance improvement over 1080ti isn't enough for me to actually do something significant. It will let me play at 4k with a few extra quality turned on. Or maybe it will give me some extra smoothness on 144hz. Some RTX features that can't really be used easily at the moment. That is about it.

There are drawback, though. 14nm right before 7nm become mature. HDMI 2.0 right before HDMI 2.1 become mature. Still No AV1 decoding. Etc. You are paying for a clearly stopgap product that the next gen will have a lot of features you really don't want to go without.

Personally I would wait. Not because of the steep price but mostly because some features I considered critical to the longevity of the card (Namely, HDMI 2.1) missing.

RTX is 12nm.

If you need the power for gaming for the eye candy, just buy it. Better technology is always around the corner. You will never buy anything waiting for the next big thing.

Seems that Nvidia is struggling with their new rtx. Maybe price will go down?

The top line slide for the quarter was "driven primarily" by a 45 per cent drop in gaming revenue to $954m, "weaker than expectations heading into the quarter", said CFO Colette Kress on an earnings call with financial analysts.
