the sad part is people will buy it
I mean, idiots will spend over £1,000 on a fucking phone that will be out of date in a year I don't see the problem with a card you'll probably have for 5 or more years being that price.
Shit card and inflated price.
Blame the consumers. Imbeciles buying overpriced gpu's instead of saving your money. Why would nvidia lower prices?
I was able to get the version from Palit with one fan for 28 thousand rubles (360~usd)
Its worse than rx580, AMD on crack
i'll stick with my 6gb 1060
Stop acting like 550 euros is a lot of money, have you guys considered applying for a job? Cant just play videogames for the rest of your life
And all of that for 1660-ish performance
I don’t know if GPU in 2022 will better than 2021. We can only hope for a crypto crash.
wtf 550 for a card thats worse than a 1070 from 2016?!?!
Kinda glad I just bit the bullet early last year and got a slightly overpriced GPU when prices weren't absolutely terrible.
I bought firearm AK instead gpu
i have the 1070, i expected 3050 to be better but apparently its worse lmao
isn't that gpu worst than 2060 or 2070?
buying gpu is being dead brain
In Russia have price 350$. but they were sold in the store in a few minutes.
In brazil its 3 minimum wages, it's hard to have something better then a 1660-2060 here
can somebody explain why are laptops gpus for normal price? I am considering to buy notebook with GTX 3080 is that good? For 1.5K euros
i need new gpu what should i buy
actually cheaper to buy a pre-built pc xd
found a 5600x + 3070 + 1tb nvme and 16 gb ram for 1350 euro
remember a few years ago when we were able to buy a GTX 970 or R9 290 for 300-350€ to get really close to highend performance back then? Good times. GTX Titan X ruined everything, GPU prices exploded after that.
It's sitting on the same level performance wise as the $380 1070GTX from 6 years ago and since you won't find it at MSRP, you're gonna pay even more than you would for the 1070 in 2016.
It's insanity. Please don't buy that junk, that offers your abysmal performance compared to even RTX 2060. It's a robbery.
Get a desktop during sale with a gpu in it. I bought a full desktop in December for 899 euro feat I5 11400 and RTX 3060 and 16 GB 3200 MHZ + 512 M2.E SSD. I know not everyone can find similar deals but buying a piece of trash like 3050 at that price is beyond madness.
"I can totally see the extra frames bro trust me bro its worth it" KEKW PC players can be so goofy sometimes. I've seen someone complaining that a game "wasn't optimized correctly" because they could only get 270FPS very cringe
Literally get a 1080ti for the same price xD
Remember, Nvidia spent their ces presentation rambling about cloud gaming and gaming monitors. With rtx 3050 and rtx whatever tai being throw out in middle like a garbage information. The only reason rtx 3050 exists is to shit on rx 6500 xt even more. It is given fake msrp price and barely any stocks, just so to have reason to claim this is not paper launch. Rx 6500 xt is terrible yes, but at least it's real gpu and not a marketing stunt.
If you consider rtx 3050 for prices it is at, then just go for rx 6600 xt. Lot faster.
If not rx 6600 xt, then consider that Gtx 1660 super and gtx 1660 ti are around same performance. And rtx 2060 is faster than rtx 3050.
3050 1 vent will be spring 270$
Ive got rtx 3080 for only 800 Euro lmao. Got it in june 2021
But purchased it oike 7 months before and waited for them to have in stocks
Kekw we have no rtx 3050 in finland
1) be smart, don't buy into marketing
4 gig cards are less efficient for mining and they have less inflated price. Still inflated but not as much, look for one on used market and for ~150$ you should have a decent 1080p performer. R9 380 4 gig comes to mind, sure it's older but for most games it will run fine even for higher refresh rate monitors.
2) know the market, GPU mining is carrying the price
It's just profitable, rough math says that even with payout as low as they are in the winter you will pay off your card in less than a year, but with summer payouts you pay it off in 6 months and rest is pure profit.
Any GPU with 6 gigs of VRAM or more is gonna have an insane price. 1060 6gig I bought 3 years ago doubled in price
why would you get 3050 if you can get 3080 for 2500€
if buy something overpriced it should be top end atleast, buying something thats both overpriced and wont last long is idiocy.
Paid 399€ for rtx 2070
No need to pay more and downgrade.
