Clock Speeds

If you prefer comparing the RTX 3050 to the RTX 3060 instead of Nvidia dusting off a card from 5 years ago, then the numbers are 3584 CUDA Cores versus 2560 here, and approximately two thirds the Pixel fill-rate with 85.3 GP/s on the 3060 against the 56.9 here.

Yup just another card that's stupid money.

BTW mining *is* starting to die. It's way less profitable than it was, and I have already seen quite a few lower end cards like the 3070Ti coming up for sale. Still stupid prices, and the gouging will continue until the flood that I reckon will come by summer.

OCUK now want 2 grand for a 3080Ti. IMO? they are doing the final gouging. Maybe hoping to catch people out before it all comes crashing down. Because when it does they won't be able to sell a GPU shaped stick of gum with the amount of second hand cards flooding the market.

As I mentioned in the 6500XT review thread their head salesman basically said they were gouging people £50 to make it "Not worth bothering for scalpers". Without realising of course that they are just doing the scalping as usual.

And oddly enough the prices did shoot up £50 the day after initial sale, but have mysteriously gone back down because I guess that one blew up in their face when they realised that people found out the cards were turd and not worth having like, at all.

So they are back down to £199 and still people are not buying them. Sadly though the 3050 seems to be so so. Like, better than total chite so people do want them hence the enormous gouge-o-rama.

I don't need a GPU (thank god) but if I did? I would be happy to be patient and wait like I always have with stuff.

Must dash. New 70" TV being delivered today for less than that 3050 on Ebay costs /rolleyes.Quote
