It's certainly needed. I remember seeing something like that done on Pascal cards. I know there isn't really a competitor to run to seeing as AMD are having their own availability issues (due to allocating the majority of wafers to console SoCs), but long term this can't be earning any good will from consumers. I was lucky to get my 3080 last year and I probaby dropped off the weekly news about them since. But just recently starting to get back into the loop the prices and availability seems even worse than last year. It wouldn't really be hyperbole to suggest that RTX 4000 series rumours will pickup before 3000 become readily available off the shelf and at respectable prices.

Anyone who has already purchased them just won't upgrade their drivers, at least moving forward we should be good.
3060 isn't out yet, is it? The announced driver changes are only for 3060's right now as I read it

Still around $1400SGD, and it's out of stock.
Didn't realise SGD and AUD were about the same (1 AUD = 0.97 SGD), and that would have even been a great price for the FTW at launch here. Not sure what they are now. At launch the "budget" models like TUF and Ventus were around $1300-1400 from memory, with the premium stuff like FTW, Strix etc anywhere from $1600-$1800. My iGame Vulcan OC which is premium was $1699 (around $1750 SGD) I think.

For all intents and purposes it's basically 1:1

I'm still checking local retailers every couple of weeks for 3080 availability, but it's all trickles and pre-orders.

One place was 2-12 weeks for delivery..
How many stores are there in SNG? Can you look outside in Malaysia? Same story here still but if you really want one you have to be prepared to hustle and play the F5 game. I only got mine because I was proactively looking to snipe.

Sim Lim Square is the big IT thing here, they have heaps of retailers, plus online stuff like lazada.sg, but malaysia is just as bad for availability + import taxes..
