Navi wont be 1080ti performance so waiting for Navi is relevant only if youre looking for great price/performance ratio..

I feel people forget something; right now the 2nd strongest suite of cards with good 4k gameplay are only the Radeon7, RTX2080 and 1080ti.
We all know whos the 1st on top..

considering this, i think its normal for these to be expensive...

Obviously everyone want the good stuff to be not expensive but... be reasonable at least? As of today, these are all damn powerful card. Gotta pay to play...

nvidia on 7nm will def be nuts... not sure how AMD will counter that

People in here expecting GPU prices to drop 75%+ immediately following a Navi release that may or may not even exist are hilarious. What consumer electronics world are you living in to think like that?

I tried to sell an gtx1060 6gb at under 100usd recently and in the end the buyer backed out (reasonable as buyer needed something more powerful for there tasks). I got the GPU for free too. It's a slim possibility.

Good point on Amazon. However, bear in mind, even if you can find many 1080 ti for 550 USD, such is NOT at all the case in other parts of the world like, Europe.

For 550 E (around 630 USD), I'm lucky to find a miner second hand 1080 ti ! I already posted somewhere here I even found a non working, for parts only, 1080 ti for ... 250 E.

The market seems completely different whether in north america or europe ...

No, they're not. You can get 1080ti's all day long for $500-$650 each. The reference designs are around 5, the premium aftermarket cards, closer to 650. I could snag a 1080ti sli setup for around a grand, maybe less on a good day.

You can bid on international listings if the seller is willing to provide global shipping. I buy things from European sellers all the time.
