Is EVGA gearing up for the SUPER series?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I got a notice from EVGA to check their site on 6/26 if I own a 700 or 900 series card (I own both, as they are well aware).  They claim turning one in will bring a big discount on a RTX 20 series card.  I can't help but think they are trying to burn off stock of their current versions knowing many will opt for the super series and they'll have to lower the prices of current models anyway (or I could be wrong about their motives).  I'd rather spend the money for a super series 2080 as it has performance close to the current TI for about 800.  Still, it will be interesting to see what discounts they are offering and if other companies will follow suit.

 

If you wanted an 2080, would spend the extra 100 or so for the new super, or would you just stick with the base 2080 for less?

I won't, I doubt the 2080 subpar will be better value than the cut down 2080 since it only has 5% more cores and faster memory. Of course, who am I to talk about $800 cards when my whole system cost that much...

EVGA does stuff like that all the time, they also aren't afraid to firesale old GPU's, they had 980ti's going for $200 at one point around about the time of the scrapyard wars before last scrapyard wars, these 20 series cards are nearly a year old, they are probably just trying to increase sales numbers since no one is buying them.

I was hoping....  I figured some of the early reports could be off.  It was mentioned the super version of the 2080 would have the GPU from the TI, just not all the functionality.  

If that's the case, I will wait for the base 2080 to drop after the release of the supers.  I hope the base models drop more than 100.

Well if they make me a good offer for my old 760 and 960, they just might have a couple sales on their hands.

it's a win win really, i've always been a fan of their ti black for 999.99, if theres a discount even on that for turning in a 7xx or 9xx then it could be worth it.
