With the release of the 30 series' stats and claims that a 3070 ($499) would get you better performance than a current top of the line GPU, How does everyone think this will effect the used market?It is my opinion that used GPU prices are going top drop massively. Why would anyone pay anything close to $500 for a used card that can be out performed by a 3070 for the same price? I understand that you may have spent $1,000+ on a card and if you want to sell it, there is no more incentive with this new series.Am I off base on my assumptions?
Thanks for your reply, Michael B. I 100% agree with you on a used card being worth less than $500. For any incentive to buy a used card, I'm thinking a fair price, generally speaking, would be somewhere in the $2-300 range. once you get above that I think the consumer would be more inclined to shell out a little extra money for not only a better card, but a new condition one. It takes out the risk from buying a used possibly over temp, over clocked mining gpu. I know not everyone abuses their rigs, but also not everyone is honest either when selling second hand.I don't know if the current market is reflecting my current outlook, Im curious to see how much time It will take (or not if I'm wrong) to see drastic dips in used prices.
Speaking of which, will we see refurb'ed 2000 series at Micro Center? Any kind of estimate as to the price points?
