Used rtx 20 series gpus are readily popping up in the 2nd hand peripherals market by desperate owners trying to get rid of them as quick as they can. This seems like the result of rtx 3000 launch.

Not in India though. :(
We have customs and GST which would increase the price unnecessarily for 3000 series. :facepalm:

People won't sell off their barely 3-6 months old GPUs which they bought at higher prices during the pandemic.

EC2 G4 instances can work, they have Nvidia Tesla, so you will need to install a driver that is game compatible.
But GCP is a better option, here you can select CPU and GPU individually unlike AWS.
No, man, mumbai availability zone I get a 40 ms ping + 10 ms encode/decode latency to play, and that too from a bad local fibre connection (20mbps). its good enough for most games, not multiplayer or FPS. Stadia is the exact same thing, when google introduces stadia they just gonna add a software wrapper around this and call it a product. Infact when I launched division 2, ingame it actually thinks im playing on stadia lol.
Games like Witcher, shadow of tomb raider, etc. run fine.
Interesting. I haven't yet used my free GCP account. Can I try out something like this on a free account anyway? Clearly can't on AWS free tier xD

Saw some 2080s in the FB market place today that were being sold for around 45k,some rtx 2070s were also available for 33-35k.

Most owners of these gpus who had put them up for sale were being heavily trolled by others at their desperate attempts to get rid of their cards in the wake of the 3000 series launch.

With all the talk of ray tracing enabled cards thats been going around,i cannot help but wonder,are non rtx cards like 1060 etc already obsolete?


photo shows an rtx 2080 FE for sale-wish i had that kind of money to be able to pick up a gpu for 45k!

By the way, the poll doesn't make any sense at all.
Which part?
?
Is that some tool we have to setup?

I am looking to sell my 1070, that will go even cheaper now :lol:

Edit:

I voted the 3rd option because Nvidia proprietary drivers on Linux are kinda shit, also no RTX on Linux.

Parsec, Moonlight, Steam Game stream, everything will work.

not much if you provision spot/preemptive instances (which halves the cost) but your isntance can shut down at any moment

Why though? Its still a point of debate after launch that you consider this launch to be "the best ever. period" with the VFM argument or the awesome performance boost etc. OR do you consider it to be just build up of hype by nvidea. OR you are the guy who would buy AMD Custom Mountain Bike - SOLD OUT instead.

+1, its true for any tech product, thats why direct USD to INR conversion never work in India even though we are not paying for the shipping costs.

I don't know, most probably not, NVIDIA HairWorks didn't make AMD completely obsolete at that point in time, nor did it make the older cards obsolete. The increase in performance did.

Lol, reason is more than justified. I hope though rtx is supported ASAP. Its already time for 2end gen rtx (can we call 'em that?) rtx cards, and nvidea just won't bulge out. IMO nvidea thinks if somebody cares to buy the rtx card for *beta rtx* functions, they are probably using windows, and the small no. of ppl who bought rtx series to play rtx games on linux don't matter to nvidea THAT much.
