SLIM PICKINGS FOR BETTER VIDEO CARDS

Sapphire Nitro+ R9 Fury

Digging around on fleabay that few video cards are being offered for sale outside very old cards with limited VRAM. It seems that with higher bitcoin prices cards are being put to work chasing a dream.

The RTX 2080 has survived for 3 years now and it has survived playing games galore. The card is designed for gaming which is what it does best.

While some cards are available prices are still outlandish. The RX 6900 XT is over $750 above MSRP. The RTX 3080 is now hard to find but the RTX 3080 Ti selling somewhat closer to MSRP. Most miners seem to want the low end cards which are really hard to find.

EVGA is not accepting waitlist clients as they are inundated with orders for new cards. This is not a good sign at all.

Looking over fleabay found cards are available at rather outlandish prices. Over $5000 for an RTX A6000 card with 48GB VRAM and the GPU is close to the RTX 3090 so extra VRAM is rather overpriced. Prices for RTX 3090 cards vary from $2400 and up which is still well above MSRP.
