Exactly. I suspect the downvotes might be because it's Gigabyte, but you never know why people really downvote.

What do you mean? Just click on the little i to find out why. With limited options, sometimes it might still not be clear what the reason is but in this case it's very clear people just don't like the price. Regardless, though, people are indeed way too obsessed with silly downvote counts.

27% of down votes think it is Not a good price
Don't know what price they want to make them happy

Still good card with good price imo , you can spend a little more to get the TI version

The only time I *ever* look at downvotes is when an OP complains about it. Otherwise I completely forget it's there. It's hilarious to me every single time somebody gets butthurt that people don't like their deal.

In the case of video cards, particularly right now, there are two camps: the "omg prices are finally dropping after SO LONG with insane prices, I'm gonna buy now!" camp and the "Prices are absolutely going to plummet even more, it's silly to buy now" camp.

Personally speaking, this deal seems warm-ish to me, but thankfully I've got a 2080TI borrowed from a buddy that I can use till the 40xx cards come out in the new year.

There's also the wider available 6700 XT which is a bit worse but close to 100$ cheaper.
That and rt cores, and the software/driver advantage nvidia still has.

This is a new card, so it won't be burnt out for mining. You're making a point for taking the deal.

However, the 4xxx series is supposed to launch shortly, which is a good case for waiting.

No Price will make those people happy as if it was $369 people will still said "prices are dropping and it will get lower still".
Or wait for 4000 series or wait for Black Friday, etc...

I found this video interesting... makes me think prices will not get much lower.
I will most likely be looking to the used market as I have noticed an up tick in the one GPU line (Gigabyte Vision White) that I'm looking at buying in my city.
Used prices are still high as people are not stupid and are still listing mining cards at a close to new price.

Didn't downvote but it's not a great price considering what's happening in the GPU market.

Big next gen unveil coming up and ETH 2 merge happened last night so expect a ton of cards to flood the market (they already have and will continue).

AMD 6900 XT's have been going on major discounts in the US, it's already under $900 in Canada and dropping fast. 3070 LHR's have at least another $100 (if not more) to go from this price imo.

Unless you have dirt cheap energy cost, are not all card not profitable right now? Whattomine is not accurate.

Last rumour I saw was that we're unlikely to see anything but 4090 by end of year, with others coming early in 2023 (4060 last), so that retailers can dump the existing 30xx stock. I haven't been paying *that* close attention, though I saw that Nvidia has an event scheduled for next Tuesday so I'm guessing that's when we'll find out more? Just took a quick gander at Kijiji to see what the 3080ti market was looking like across the GTA right now, and if this doesn't give a perfect encapsulation of various views on the market I don't know what will:

Yes, it's still uncertain what nVidia will release by the end of the year, maybe just the 4090, but there's still a chance we might see the 4070 and 4080 before the holidays. In any case, I'm hoping they'll at least announce the specs for 4070 and 4080 at next week's event.

Also, I believe AMD will be releasing their new cards before Xmas, and they should be quite an interesting offering, with hopefully much better ray tracing performance which should narrow the gap with the equivalent nVidia cards.

I'm not sure what you are getting at with this image but you need to scroll down to get actual 3080ti listings.

Ethereum has moved from proof of work to proof of stake. Essentially with POW they needed the processing power of many GPUs to validate each transaction on the blockchain. With POS, cryptocurrency owners validate blockchain transactions based on the number of coins they stake. This means no more GPU mining, less power consumption.
