    Great, so how long until a 1080ti is sub 400-500 again?

      Well I wouldn't bother with the 1080 ti, 2080 GTX should be similar or little bit faster an more VRAM than the 1080 ti for around 500 ish launch price. Supply and demand problem for all current cards, but with whole new range launching soon, should help to alleviate it.

          Exactly, I was expecting the miners to go for the newer cards so there would be a wave of 1080ti's coming up.

            I thought there was talk of NVIDIA making the new cards unusable for minig like they do to the Quadros for gaming

            I think I may leave this forum, it seems to be full of the village people.​

              I am sure someone will mod drivers/or Bios to enable mining if Nvidia do lock the cards down
              I am not losing weight! I'm getting rid of it. I have no intention of finding it again!

                Sounds like they are keeping Volta for deep learning and Ampere for gaming/general purpose. Doubt they will remove mining due to it giving AMD an advantage for sales. NV CEO boasting lately how they providing more cards for crypto mining compared to their competitors, so why would they do that? if they intend on limiting crypto mining.

                  pascal refresh or from their top bins for extra clocks?

                  gddr6 to save them more and not eat into their margins leaving the real high end cards with hbm where the margins can eat it and not hurt so much?

                  they aint going to pull a whole new core from thin air and volta is their next core. but with the lead they have they can respin pascal again with faster ram/core clocks and eek out more profit from the old rope.

                  maybe even skip the high costs of selling hbm to the gaming plebs or at least delay it till it's cost has dropped even more for them.

                    Ampere is Volta just with tensor cores stripped and HBM2 support gone. Just NV taking out stuff no good to gamers basically.
