    KFA2 are part of the Galax brand, I think. I had a KFA2 GTX1070. I was impressed by it's build quality, but didn't keep it for very long when I realised what great value the GTX1080ti was, comparitively.

I don't have a crystal ball but maybe he does. We will see.But if you need a card now, just buy now and enjoy it. Time is money.


    The semi conductor chip shortage is all but over now for some industries (including GPU), so I don't need a crystal ball to make an educated guess that production will likely not shut down again as it had to in the beginning of the pandemic. Experts from basically all relevant industries predicted (and continue to predict based on the steadily increasing flow of new chips into the market up to present) that the shortage will ease in the second half of 2022, which we are seeing come into fruition as of right now. Some components for certain chips (mainly for the automotive industry) will likely continue to be in at least slight short supply until we run into 2023, but with production continuing to ramp up, it's likely the market will be flooded with them the beginning of 2024, making way for a down spike in prices.

    Ethereum moving to PoS will decrease demand for mining too, and scalpers will have to shift their excess stock, likely create a partial market flood.

    All indications point to prices continuing to fall

    I can vouch for KFA2, you normally only see them on the European market. They used to be famous for making single slot, low profile versions of certain cards when other manufacturers didnt/wouldnt. I rate them.

    Havent had to use their RMA process before though so cant comment on that.

    Hold out. Prices have steadily been decreasing, we're nearly down to RRP now. You might not be able to get a 40 series card at launch, but there shouldn't be the same shortage and inflated prices we've seen on the 30 series cards. At the very least, you will be able to buy a 30 series card for less than RRP when the new ones come out

    I have the Ti version of their 3070 card and so far so good. Temps with dual fans are decent. So would very much expect this to be good also.

I think i described the pads quite accurately... soggy bandages - they have fabric in them, The FE cards are lovely to look at, but are let down by cheaping out on these pads which nVIdia seem to have been using for years.. perhaps they bought them in bulk and still trying to offload them.. Either way they're unfit for purpose. I think you meant GDDR6x (not 5x), the 5x chips do get hot but they have no temp sensor on them but i can assure you they're getting hotter than they should.I had a Gigabyte Vision 3090 and the pads were even worse than the FE with similar temps on the ram. The pads on that resembled a stick of shiny chewing gum, and about as effective.Go watch some teardowns, and google FE thermal pads, i have experienced this first hand and have had 1 Founders card replaced by Scan already.This brand are ok actually, and besides the retailer are responsible for at least 12 months by law, you aren't obliged to even deal with the manufacturer at all during the warranty period... Know your rightsThe next gen of cards will be higher priced, TSMC announced up to a 20% increase in chip prices, once that comes down to consumer that will be closer to 30%, then the new cards will have more expensive ram and more GB's. Couple that with the fact that the new cards are bound to be scalped. Not an issue for me, but those thinking they are going to be able to just grab a new 4000x series card on launch day or shortly after are going to be sorely mistaken.


    The pads on the FE are rubbish but it's only an issue on GDDR6X models since it runs so hot. So only the 3080 and up. And some partner cards use em like you said.

    I changed the pads in my 3080 to Gelid Extreme and it dropped the VRAM temp from 95'C to 82'C when mining, and even lower for gaming.


    As for this deal, if it were a Ti it would be decent. But a base 3070.. Nah.

    Best enthusiast deal that's in stock today imho, is one I think you posted earlier, KFA2 GeForce RTX 3080 SG 10GB LHR GDDR6X. It's still £100 too pricey for me, but I can wait a little longer. I just found out that I've had my GTX1080ti for nearly 5 years.

    1070 is still a good card. 70-90 fps is absolutely fine. Hold your horses till the summer - till end of the year. Intel G cards and 4000 series are gonna affect pricing in a good way. Be able to grab one of them or a 3000 for a good price. Plus it'll give you a chance to save up for other upgrades. 8400 (my son has it in his machine with a RTX 2060 - my old machine) will bottleneck modern 3000 cards. PCIE 4.0 and a better CPU should be paired with modern cards to get the most outta them. Just my thoughts. (edited)

    That's not how it works.. The issue with inflated prices is fairly nuanced, but the factors causing people to pay way over RRP are coming to an end, and are all but resolved now. By the time new cards are out, supply should be caught up with demand, and they should be available for RRP. Also, the 30 series cards will drop below RRP with the release of 40 series.

    Anyone continuing to buy cards now for above RRP is just dragging out the process back to pricing normality

    Do you know the price, the perfromance or the release date?


    There's been no leaks regarding price, however, I think a 10% increase in the RRP from the 30 series cards is probably what we will be looking at. The 30 series cards actually dropped in RRP compared with the RRP of 20 series cards. There's no reason they could justify anything much more than that.
    There have been leaks regarding performance, though nothing close to full specs. It looks like the 40 series cards will have up to 71% more CUDA cores than the 30 series. This has led to speculation that the higher end 40' cards will likely require a very hefty power supply

You get what you pay for,. The AIB cards usually have better cooling and thermal pads. Not always though, avoid Gigabyte they cheap out.


    You're talking nonsense about the relative quality of the FEs and low-end AIB cards like this one. You might get a better PCB and cooler if you pay for a high-end model like the Strix or the Suprim X, but certainly not on these. The cooler on the FE costs way more to make and is of much higher quality than a card like this. There's absolutely no issue with the thermal pads on the FEs unless you're a mining gimp, and even then it only applies to the cards using GDDR5X, which doesn't include the 3070. The 3070 FE is an amazing card and whisper quiet. Still kinda regret selling mine.

    There's also nothing wrong with Gigabyte cards, or at least not any moreso than any other AIB. They're also one of the only ones with a UK-based RMA centre (along with Zotac). Enjoy waiting months to get your card back if anything ever goes wrong with a card from a brand like KFA2/Galax, since the card will need to be shipped to China for repair. They actually used to have a base in Wales, but it closed down years ago. Same with EVGA's UK location.
