What do you think the least expensive RDNA2 will cost?
I don’t think there will be an affordable Ampere, based on prices of the 20xx series. So what could be the most affordable next gen card?

I would be one of those except I'm holding onto a 780Ti, I missed out on the 1080Ti which was definitely worth purchasing. The RTX Turing cards however left a horrible taste in my mouth, I despised the pricing. Sadly it seems not enough people had the same reaction because I don't think Turing was a failure for Nvidia meaning this pricing strategy likely worked. I tried to get a $400 5700XT last year...sadly somebody scammed Amazon and it was actually a Vega 56...which is better than my 780Ti but not worth $400. So I'm likely going to be buying into the new generation, but I'm very pessimistic with regards to the pricing. I fully expect Nvidia to still be in rip everybody off mode, and I'm not expecting AMD to return pricing to previous normals rather I only expect them to undercut Nvidia mildly even more so if RDNA2 ends up better than Ampere.heyyahblah wrote: ↑ They are still promising a September release date for gamers, but who knows how that will shift. Also Moore's Law is Dead is telling everyone to ditch their 2080Ti cards before RDNA 2 and Ampre kill it. It's crazy to have seen so many builds of people holding onto 970 cards on their new builds, or buying up RX 580 RX 590 cards when they would come up on sale for $300 (RX 590) just to have a GPU to hold them over. Unless you have money to burn I notice a lot of people holding back when it comes to GPU's.

With this unstable market, shortages, poor dollar exchange, COV19 and all the other B.S. going on ... who only knows. I would expect a 3070 card for $700 all in (incl taxes) hopefully even less than that. It's coming up on 2 years since the 2080 and 2080Ti series cards were dropped and used 1080Ti's were going for around $700 max $750 depending where you looked. I talked down someone to $670 and that was end of August 2018. Now because of the shortages the prices have gone up again, some as far as asking $800+ for almost a 4 year old used card. If I tried to sell mine now I would probably be up $100 or so, lol. It's really a depressing time for GPUs.
