If AMD sells their RX 480 at ~$200 USD in India, Nvidia probably won't receive many sales.

if AMD had got Vega ready by now then nvidia would have no choice but to price the 1080 competitively.

 

but as it stands nvidia has a few months where they can do what they want. The same thing happened a few years ago when nvidia launched the GTX 780 and original Titan. It was a few months before the AMD R9 290 and 290x arrived so in the interim Nvidia was able to charge high margins.

that's not how this works, your post has to get some following. My post was featured on a Wan show because everyone was talking about it.

That's not how it works either. Linus has a guy (Coltan) who adds topics to the doc and they pick the ones they want to discuss. I've had topics in the doc that they've skipped over in the past, it's just the luck of the draw. 

 

To be honest it's great when you make WAN, it's a great way of rewarding the user base but I don't even think about it when I post news. The news comes first and if it makes WAN, great!

My guess is they don't even want to ship cards worldwide until they can fully meet the demand in north america. Prices should go down when availability becomes better, hopefully.

Good, hopefully nvidia gets the message that this is not ok

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

80% more expensive in India? Damn right that's unacceptable, that's approaching daylight robbery tbh.

This looks more like a issue like the one Canada has. Don't expect nvidia to sell it to you for under 600usd. Meaning if 1000000 of your money is 600usd dont bitch about nvidia the price is the same everywhere bitch about your gov. or country for having a shitty economy/tax practice.

Hm... seems like everyday there's a new story about India supposedly getting "price gouged" by these electronic companies. What is the common factor across all these products? Selling in India. Perhaps they should fix whatever is going wrong at home before complaining.

A reference 1080 costs $890 here. The 980 used to cost ~$700.

This has always been the same. It's very annoying, but somehow only the US matters when it comes to price, so whatever.

I have yet to see any cards remotely close to the MSRP...in any global market or from Computex.

 

All AIB solutions have been at least +$50 from MSRP. We're paying at least $30 more from MSRP to get a custom cooling compared to previous generation. In terms of India, maybe the price is extremely high because of low supply rather than gouging? I don't know. 

 

I hope it's not the same for the 1070.

I don't even understand what the problem is.  The product is more expensive than you want to pay, boo fucking hoo.  The company can sell their stuff at whatever price they want, though in fairness you can complain about whatever you want too.  They want to sell it for $1 in country A and $1,000,000 in country B?  Looks like it sucks to be in country B.  So either don't buy it, or buy it from country A somehow, there are services that will buy something and send it to you if the company won't ship to your country.

If you can't afford it then go get a 480 or two. Show em price matters by buying the cheaper product.

I disagree with the author of the article that 699 dollars is a reasonable price in the first place.

 

I do, however, agree that the Indians are getting gouged here. An 80% price increase is beyond any sales tax.

the 980 ti launched at $649 so you would think that they would launch their xx80 card at a lower price point then their xx80ti card. the 980 launched at $549. the 1080 should be 549 and the founders edition shouldn't be more expensive. If nVidia really wanted a reference design out during the whole life of the card they should of just made a deal with the board partners to keep a reference design always for sale.

I think a lot of people would disagree with you on this forum. This forum is crazy about price/performance and Nvidia priced the 1080 as such.

Are you all sure this is Nvida's fault and not the Indian economy and trade laws with a US corporation or retailers gouging consumers?

 

The witch hunts going on here, lmao.

the 1080 is in the wrong price bracket. This is where nVidia MSRP's should be to me.

 

titan-$1000

xx80ti-$649-$699

xx80-$549-$599

xx70-$329-$379

xx60-$199

xx50-$149 

 

699 is not a fair price for a reference design of a card that would otherwise be 599(in my bracket, I take back what i said about the 1080 base price). When the 1080ti comes out it will fall in my bracket and people will look at it and then look at the 1080 'founders edition'  at that price and be confused. The founder card is just a money grab from the people can't wait a couple weeks and from people who think it is better because it has the word edition slapped onto it.

This is a problem with India not Nvidia. The indian dollar isnt worth much this is why you get something called inflation. If you couldnt figure something basic like that out its no wonder your country's economy is shite.

Yea... unfortunately angry forum members with pitchforks will cry out otherwise saying it's all about price to performance.
