  • Weekends are Question and Answer time. Skip your questions gaily across the comment section like a stone across a pond full of frogs, and I'll serve up what answers I can tomorrow.

  • When are we likely to see graphics cards at anything approaching reasonable prices again? (WCCFTech)

    Well, here in Australia, the answer seems to be today:

    I've confirmed this with a couple of retailers here; prices are down close to 40% since last week. If I wasn't in the middle of buying a house I'd be buying a new desktop. (Despite the fact that I already have two laptops with RTX 3060 graphics.)

    AMD prices have not adjusted nearly as much, so instead of the 6700 XT competing against the RTX 3060, it's now facing the RTX 3070 Ti. Which is not a good matchup for Team Red.

    Pricing on the top-of-the-line RTX 3090 has also barely moved, still marked up by about 100% over MSRP. But from the RTX 3060 up to and including the RTX 3080 there's been a seismic shift. (Which also leaves the recently re-introduced RTX 2060 more expensive than the much better 3060.)
