@JEMC Yep. Its Nvidia setting price points and seeing what they can get away with. Thankfully the 4080 has been largely a flop at that price point, but the 4070Ti's seem popular which kinda sucks. And that sets the stage for the 4070.
At this point, it would be very easy for AMD to win a ton of marketshare by simply launching their new cards with a ∼20% performance increase gen over gen at the same price points those cards were.
As imagine a 7800XT that's ∼20% faster than the 6800XT, making it faster than a 3080 in everything but ray tracing, for $649. That would make it $100 cheaper than the 4070, if the rumor is true, while giving roughly the same performance (if not more) in all but RT escenarios.
Oh, well, we can dream.
....and I thought I did well selling some random TF2 skins I randomly had on my Steam account for £40 each a few years ago, I don't know where they came from since I haven't played TF2 before but it was a nice bonus.
That sucks, but I'm sure you were quite happy when you got £40 a piece back then.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 (Ti) Founders Edition has been pictured as well
We've had so many articles comparing the scaling of the 4090 on different PCIe situations, all coming to the conclusion that x16 PCIe 4.0 lanes are more than enough for it, that I don't think a card that's 1/3 of its power will be bottlenecked by those x8 lanes.
It sucks, of course, but I don't think it will matter much unless you put it into an old system with PCIe 3.0.
As a side note, you're on holidays with the family! Don't post hardware news!
