Do 1080 ti re-sellers not understand how the market works?

Sure Nvidia is no longer making 1080tis and sure they WERE a much better value proposition than a 2080 when that card came out. But once it surpasses the price point of the 2080, what's the point? Who exactly is buying less powerful or equal cards for as much as $500 more? I just don't get it.

Who is buying the cards atm? Gamers looking for SLI. $500 is cheaper than a new $700 rtx 2080 at the same performance. Its a sellers market.

Hi,
Yep as long as people buy there is little hope prices will drop
Only when another version releases possibly prices will drop a little on prior releases and that's a maybe as far as how long it takes to drop a little then supplies will evaporate magically.

The market sets the price.


For a small subset of people, higher VRAM amount makes sense over RTX 2080.

I don't understand, where are they going for $500 more than a 2080? Some crazy ebay seller? I have been surprised that the 1080ti has fallen as low as it has. Look at the market place there are evga cards with 2 years warranty for $550 that the dude can't sell. Sure they were mined but still. The cheapest 2080 is $699? And is pretty likely to die on you.

But they are not going for $500. Not even close. I said they're going for $500 MORE than a 2080. They're all over $1,000 right now. The scaling doesn't justify that premium. You'd be better off paying for a 2080 and buying another during the next price drop.

I would say the sellers understand how the market works quite well. If they can set a price way above what new stuff costs, then all the power too them. I would do it too.
On the flip side, I don't have to purchase it either.

The price would come down if peeps would quit buying.

Everytime i upgrade GPU, i always endup giving mine to friend/office/colleague for free. Happened with an GTX660Ti, 680, 970, 1080x2, 1080TI and probably will happen with my 2080TI. Sometimes when I fix friends PC and something is wrong, I endup paying the repair costs if doesn't involve whole new rig. Mind you, these people are good friends and they help me out with other things in life. Maybe i am just the too generous person in general. However, more people should be like me and whenever possible, give it free to others.

This is my exact point, WHO exactly is buying something that is much more expensive and less powerful. Even if it does have more VRAM, it's 25% slower and GDDR5 instead of GDDR6. I agree with the scalpers mantra, if there was no market, they wouldn't sell. MY question is where exactly is the market?

People with crap tons of cash, or the retailers are just sitting on them and be damned in lowering the price.
I suppose they would rather have no sales than to lower the price.
