This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Whilst I appreciate this is more than most people want to spend on a graphics card, this is not a bad price for the RTX 2070S which has similar performance to the RTX 2080.

This also comes with the Nvidia Super bundle which means digital codes for Wolfenstein Young Blood and Control will be sent after dispatch.

Long delivery ETA though of 1-2 months at present.

Not sure, Box has it at closer to £600, think the cheaper price may be the result of some places price matching eachother?

Yea it's possible, I think the genuine RRP set by Nvidia is £475 but I'd rather have this card than one direct from them.

The benefit of the usual Amazon warranty is always welcome as well, for this kind of thing Amazon is my usual go to because it's hassle free if it breaks within the first couple of years of ownership.

Ahh cheers for that. I've just flogged my Gaming X 2060, was going to get a 2070 but to be honest I think I'm going to wait it out for the Sapphire 5700xt aftermarket cards. Save some money, lose the Ray tracing I've only used twice and get very similar performance to the 2070 super. Hopefully Sapphire will drop a Toxic version.

Looks like AMD are going to be laughing even more then. Damn they seem to be having some luck lately. Intel have been destroyed in the desktop space by them at every price point. Now Nvidia are having supply issues after AMD publicly came out and said they even baited them with their original prices of their 5700 & 5700xt cards and actually penciled in a price drop pre launch anyway. Whatever is happening at the minute I like that competition is heating up for the 1st time in years. We might actually get some price wars going on.

Nvidia have nothing to worry from the company Always Making Duds.

Nvidia have nothing to worry from the company Always Making Duds.

Nobody would assume they are worried. Just happy they may soon be forced to charge reasonable prices for graphics cards again or just simply lose sales.
I think AMD are giving Intel a run for their money with the new Ryzen, but Nvidia are still on top of the GPU space at the moment.

This card at this price is a good proposition, especially when you consider the 2080 was around £700-£800 for the same sort of performance for the last 12 months or so. This is especially well placed price wise against the other 2070S cards, the next cheapest on Amazon was £530.

Throw in the 2 free games which could be sold on, and the best retailer to buy this from, and at the very least this seems like a good bet for a bit of future proofing (for what that is worth for the GPU markets) at a more reasonable price than we've had recently.

I'm hoping this will update to include the other cards in August, as it runs until the end of that month, and the page currently lists the qualifying cards as ''purchases made in July''. There's also the danger that the cashback amounts will differ, or qualifying products you can trade in will change, though.

Hopefully it won't change too much - ebay is suddenly full of GTX1070s which is obviously pushing down prices - this tradeup makes my life a lot easier and might be better off than ebay anyway - £210 for my gtx1070 at the mo
Stuck between the similar spec but far cheaper 5700XT (£340 last on Amazon) or this 2070S for £475 but as of yet, not applicable for the trade in offer - not sure I would buy in the hope they add it to the trade in list if this is indeed a special limited offer

In addition, whilst Amazon warranty is good they dont have an option for payment spreading whereas Ebuyer/Box does.

1080ti better than this 2070 super, unless you want the inferior 8GB vram or want ray tracing that is useless at the moment at any decent frame rate, why would you sale your better card ? Only Asus top £639 2070 super beats your 1080ti

Better, newer and had this for going on 3 years now so felt a change was needed. Also seen a few comparisons where the 2070S beats 1080Ti, particularly in 4k but its minimal granted

Wait for prices to settle and for the big brands to push their variants. The 5700 and XT variants from AMD make this look very expensive.
Edited by: "MRP" 14th Jul
Wondering if it’s worth upgrading a 2070 to an 2070S this seems about the same price as when I bought the 2070 I own now.
Really want to upgrade my 970, but the lack of trade in option for Asus is making me wonder whether I wait or not. Incase prices go back up
AMD still need to be extremely careful, despite dealing Intel a major blow and giving Nvidia a bloody nose price wise....but;

They still released a blower card (which isn't the worst thing but if it's temp are anything like they are benchmarked :O) so many people are worried about thermals and some people have already brought waterblocks.

Driver support has been shoddy (like old AMD) and many community members and enthusiasts are frustrated with this.

HOWEVER - Igor's Lab have unlocked the card and some people have been getting 2 GHz on it, yes on the dodgy blower style, imagine the power of this on a traditionally better cooled AIB board! 😜

However, depending on the cost of the AIB cards this may skew things in Nvidias favour due to their better driver support in early life and market share, however I suspect the price difference could be around £100-150 between the two rival cards and with the "future proofing" of Nvidias cards with its DLSS this could be a great price based on that..

I keep flipping between the 2700S and the 5700 XT but I wish we had better cards (mainly from the AMD perspective) to compare and that's what's frustrating for my budget/empty case!

It seems DLSS is a very poor implementation compared to AMDs new image sharpening on Navi. Looking at all the reviews on the net, AMD is streets ahead allowing almost 4K visuals running around 1800p.
Ray tracing is for next gen at best. Nice to try out, but really gimps frame rates, so I don’t see it as future proof benefit.

To be honest the driver support has always been as much about market penetration as anything else. Nvidia used that position to have game developers do a lot more of the work and actively integrate features into software so they spend a lot less time optimising drivers. AMD doesn't have this chance as much as most of their GPUs are on consoles anyway so that is a different system and on PC they have to play catch-up to a greater degree and don't get the same traction with developers actively investing time in making things work with AMD from the outset.

Once they have better market penetration again and a bigger share they can if they are smart leverage that along with their console market share to push more actively to get better driver support internally and externally. And with more money they can afford to do it better and straight up poach experts from Nvidia who know how to do the soft side of driver development rather than just the technical side which AMD are fine at.

Don't get me wrong I totally agree, I'm on a fixed budget and AMD are giving me what I want in both CPU and GPU performance.

RTX is great for people who want an experience in single player games, wow look at that, this looks sick etc (myself included sometimes) but the 5700/XT is where I want to be. 1440p 144hz.

Now AMD have secured contracts for the next gen of consoles (slipped my mind) your point makes much more sense, market penetration will come hand in hand with developers working on a unified set of GPUs and we as a PC community will benefit from better ports or straight up crossovers with some higher textures for our PCs.

Exciting time to buy/look at the technology.
Don’t forget AMD’s image sharpening works on all games. Nvidia DLSS only works on supported game (and if I’m not wrong only if you enable Ray Tracing). I suspect Nvidia May have to open DLSS up now, assuming they can.
These technologies are great to run games on those 4K displays without having to spend the ridiculous amounts on a 2080ti

I can't see both sides of the debate? That's really presumptuous don't you think? I just asked for some sources about the sharpening and DLSS comments, if you are going to say something that isn't factual, why would I blindly accept it?

I mean, I am reading your sources and I came upon this section.

RIS vs DLSS.

RIS vs DLSSBefore we move on to look at performance, let’s throw up some DLSS footage captured using an RTX 2070. At 4K with DLSS enabled, the image is being upscaled from 1440p through Nvidia’s deep learning algorithms. DLSS in Metro is the best implementation we’ve seen and it’s much better than using Radeon Image Sharpening on a 1440p image, but it’s not as good as AMD’s sharpened 1800p.


That sounds like a massive win in favor of NVIDIA, no? The 1440p upscaling with DLSS looks better than 1440p RIS. There is quite a nice thing about RIS though, the performance impact is very small.

But let's not forget that ReShade already exists and other sharpening.. old.reddit.com/r/A…uh/

There is obvious issues with DLSS that RIS fixes, so RIS sounds promising. But so does DLSS. They aren't even counter to each other. RIS appears to only be usable / suitable for TAA games, and there are some other problems with RIS too, like it doesn't work with DX11.

Should come with two free games. 2080 performance. Highest boost clock of the non Strix versions.
