    I would have to disagree Steve, look at the prices below from EVGA
    Josey, those are the release prices for the Kingpin version.. It is a different animal from the rest of the TI's and always command that high a price.

    Mike, I have no clue where you get that. Have you even looked at EVGA's prices lately? The 1080 TI FTW3 I bought the day they were released is about $40 more now than it was when it was released. All the high prices come from 3rd party sellers, which the AIBs get nothing from. How are they profiting from the bitcoin induced high prices? Those $1300-$1400 TI's, EVGA is selling for $820-870.
    Hi,
    When I bought my 980 evga was 100.00+ higher than newegg had it for evga has always had Notify on products too same goes for my 1080 classified

    A quick search shows the reason for high prices. This is an older article but still holds true.

    Hello, @JLMaloney. Welcome to Windows TenForums.

    Yes, a rather seven-year-old article and unfortunate crisis. I would think they would have recovered by now, so not a factor for today. Shock news (no pun intended) always affects the market until they change the supply chain.

    I understand what you're getting at overall, Steve, but what are the price hikes from the previous models to the new ones? If there's a larger and sudden surge, then that would be an indicator of gouging. That's knowing that new models are, of course, always higher, but at what percentage higher?

    Also, it could be that the AIBs are passing on the blame to retailers/resellers, which is correct, but half-truth.

    Tony, a 5% price hike never has and never will be considered price gouging, and you know it. You must be the only person on the forums that is not aware that dram prices have gone up exponentially in the past year or so, driving up production costs. In some SKUs they have put in faster ram, further increasing production costs. There is no there there, and you know that. All you are doing is trying to start an argument... again. I don't have time to participate in your little games.
