What happened to the GPU market?
Back in December 2017, I bought a GTX 1080ti, a gigabyte triple fan model for $680. 3 years later, $680 would get me a side grade at best. And now the XX80ti models are GTX Titan price. Anyone knowledgeable about this kinda stuff explain to me what's going on here?
At what point will it be viable to upgrade this 1080ti? Look, it's not about the money, I could buy a 2080ti right now, but I'm belligerent to the idea, because I know for a fact I'd be getting fleeced by paying $1200 in 2020 for a GPU that's a 30% upgrade over the one I paid $680 for 3 years ago....
I'm looking at upgrading my Ryzen 5 1600x chipset as soon as the new Ryzen 4 series drops, and I'm probably just gonna slap my 1080ti in it, because I can't beat it for $680. This will be the first time I've ever reused a GPU in a new rig.
