    i was able to snag a 3090 fe back in october. would love to get my hands on a 6900 xt though. really hate nvidia's lack of open source support. when i saw the xwayland news i was hoping they started to open up but nope. really a shame. 3090 is a great card. nvidia's entire ampere lineup is super nice.

    We will have to wait for the all blockchain currencies to crash again before GPUs will be available.

    GPUs of any kind are currently out-of-stock in many eshops. It makes little sense to keep releasing new GPUs if they cannot be delivered to consumers.

    how are you sure? samsung employee in phoronix forum??? I have sooo many questions!

    Anything above 150 $ can't be considered cheap anymore. 90% of people won't buy a GPU above 200-250$ (max 300).
    Given how high the current gpu prices are, I think most people are willing to pay a lot more than 200 bucks to get a decent gpu. I'm certainly not rich, but managed to find 500 euros for a measly 3060Ti.

    RTX 2060: 350$
    RTX 3060: 329$ (Nvidia: Look, the 3000 series is so much cheaper than our vastly overpriced 2000 series! look!)

    Seeing a problematic pattern here at the end? Anyone?
    You have fallen a victim to nVidia's marketing dept, and you are comparing apples and oranges. It's something almost all IT news sites do as well - you are comparing the GPUs based on their marketing name patterns, expecting them to be comparable, which they are not. The price bump is a further evidence of that. What you should do is compare GPUs that have roughly the same power requirements - that's what clearly defines the segments.

    The GTX 1060 6GB has a TDP of 120W. The 2060 has 160W TDP. Do you see the 33% increase? What you should be comparing it to is the GTX 1660 (120W), which is much cheaper. The same applies to RTX 3060 (170W TDP). You are comparing prices of cards from entirely different segments.
