So....3080 PAPER EDITIONs all over ebay with actual bids....i mean no one is really that stupid.....right?

People are using bots to bid on items with 3080 in the description and ebays turned a complete fucking shitshow. Most of the cards aren't real and neither are the bids.

There's a single guy on reddit that wrote a bot that is bidding on every 3080 which is why you saw one go for 80k

I imagine there will be a lot more fucking with scalpers too.

FB Marketplace in Boston has them at around ~$1500. I'll just pass on this gen if that's how it is.

Im not going to pass on this gen as I’m running a 970 but I’m definitely not buying from anyone other than a retailer. I’ll just wait for it to come into stock is all. Either the evga Xc3 or whatever AMD has if it’s competitive. I’m just nervous about drivers with them, I hated that shit 15 years ago and smooth drivers is why I have been exclusively Nvidia for so long.

I dunno I have a hard time believing people where sitting around with $30k to buy these up.
Why not? These guys are professionals and there is a steady influx of high-demand electronics that they can use their pre-existing tools for. Someone buying a mere 10 of these cards can flip them for a huge markup which you can then use for the next electronics release.

I don’t. If I knew I was going to double my money on every purchase I would have no problem putting $30k on my credit card knowing it would be paid off in a week. That’s if I had no cash from previous flips, which is probably all someone with an effective bot program does. Shoes, electronics, etc.

Think of all the star citizen ships you could own if you were an unethical scalper.

He makes it sound like you might actually be able to get one next month. If you really want one just keep trying every day at the various places because they are restocking frequently.

For reference, the GTX 1080 came out May 27th 2016 and it took me until the second week of September to actually get the one I wanted in stock at MSRP.

in 4 months all this shit will be found at slight discounts below MSRP, you've waited fucking years most likely anyways might as well try to exercise a little modicum of restraint.
Need to wait for newer CPUs anyway.

My guess is we never see any 3080 actually at MSRP. Nvidia will say it's AIBs fault

These are different times. People were selling used 20X0 series cards for their MSRP and above a few months ago.
