    What is their mindset exactly? There's a shortage of cards due to a shortage of chips, let's split the small supply further?

    I don't know. I wish I knew who the cards were going to. Like I said in the other thread if AMD manages to make SFX a blanket API that somehow manages to upscale older games as well then we wont be needing new cards for a while. It has the unfortunate side effect is destroying the market if that happens though because once miners drop their mining cards and once production returns to normal the price the majority of people will be willing to pay will also be significantly less.

    Just looking at the 3080ti specifically the specs are 12gb vram and the core count is between that of the 3080 and 3090? So we looking at a 5% increase over the 3080 ...and a 5% decrease to the 3090?

    I see they upped the 3080ti by R1k and lowered the 3080 price to just R500 less than the 3080ti.

    I just need to ask the question again, who can afford this? Or rather who is buying this?

    There's a market for it. People with $$$. People buy R45k OLEDS for R10k consoles.

    R32k for a 3080Ti is bad but not crazy, especially if you had something like a 2070 or 1080ti which you could probably sell for R11-12k in this market.

    I think maybe these prices are just squarely aimed at scalpers? Personally I think I'm just gonna play the waiting game. I think I can upgrade my old 3770 in the meantime.

    It really is my hope that the market becomes flooded with these cards 2nd hand to prices half of that of MSRP.

    That's the dream! A 3070ti should be less than a PS5.

    MSRP of 3070ti is $600 whilst the MSRP of PS5 is $500...so definitely not gonna be cheaper.
