Sapphire RX 580 8GB - £218 delivered @ Amazon.fr *LOWEST EVER PRICE*

95
Found 22nd Jul 2017
GPU prices are still through the roof, but this seems a reasonable price for a decent GPU.

Currently showing OOS but can be ordered, Amazon take cash only on dispatch. Looking at Partpicker these are still £280+, so hopefully represents a decent deal for those wanting one.

For an 8GB card this was the price of a 480 prior to huge inflation.

Per usual:
Order by choosing to pay in EUR, use a payment method with no fee like (download) Revolut or Monzo, top them up in GBP and they'll convert it for free.

Amazon are notorious for delivering ahead of their initial estimates, they take cash on dispatch (unlike most) and therefore I don't see the risk of ordering for the cheapest price around.

If you need it tomorrow it's not for you. If you want a foot in the door and are happy to wait a week or three, why not. Can always cancel it.

By all means find and post a cheaper one.

Good price tho for an 8gb ...
amd, eeeuuuww. vega is as flop, and so is this, a re badged 480.
I've got a 480, it's a good card, using it with OR and everything runs perfect.

They are being snapped up for mining of Ethereum. People making money from virtual currency. Hence no one has stock. Some GPU are going for double their normal price. It's crazy. Note it's only certain models. I think they need 4-8gb memory for them to be useful for the above. So 2gb models could be much more cost effective. I am Suprised AMD and Nvida don't up their prices.

Aside from the fact that's a completely different pocket the money is landing in?

Their mining based cards will be released fairly swiftly and should hopefully stop this happening in the future.

The manufacturer's don't appreciate the mining craze either, it destroys the market, floods second hand markets with current SKU's and causes imbalance with pricing.

Yes they're selling them, but it's not good for controlling the market through supply and demand.

If anybody orders one, keep us updated on your delivery estimate. I'll update the OP so people have an idea of the wait time.

They won't drop beneath this price anyway. So just comes down to preference of card.

"People making money from virtual currency" is the sentence to be wary of. Most miners won't make money or enough for it to be worthwhile. Best thing to do is just buy the currency as long as you can afford to lose the initial investment. Ethereum was £276 or so a couple weeks ago, then there was the Korean hack and it got dumped down to around £146, it's been going back up since slowly. If you'd picked the right moment in the past couple weeks you could easily have made much more money than any mining would have given you. Miners are now dumping GPUs so the prices on GPUs will come down. Again if you'd played it right you could have made money selling the GPUs as well. There's no such thing as easy money with trading currencies but it's obvious from the volatility that if you timed it right you could have made some decent money.

I didn't buy at £146 as I was hoping the currency would dump down even further. It might be time to buy now it might not, something could easily happen next week and wipe the currency price right out. The trend for successful crypto currencies over the long term has been on the up. I'd buy in at some point I think but only with money I can afford to lose.

I really hope the end of the boom of this new currency people are mining is the start of a price drop to what many of these cards should've been months ago. I was hoping to get a 1070 at some point, but they're still in an awful price range.
Original Poster
There's always another currency. The boom people refer to is ETH, but there's like 20 alt coins now, and at any one time people will need GPU be it AMD or Nvidia.

They wouldn't make mining specific GPU lines if there wasn't a CONSTANT need.

There is no mass dumping of GPU's right now, and I've seen no evidence at all to support that.

Heat! Got a 4gig RX480 a while back for £150 with doom and been very happy with it in my budget set up alongside a G4560 chip.

Not sure how much better these are but heat for the price!

People will blame Nvidia for keeping GPU prices high but the real blame lies with AMD's inability to produce a worthy rival to Pascal cards. Vega is a total disaster from all things seen thus far, making these cards more expensive than they could be coupled with the little mining boom recently

No, it says free delivery in France. The price of the deal includes standard postage to the UK.
Somebody also blamed high GUP prices on high memory costs ..Also I think the miners now need 4gb+ cards because the XXXX has to fit in memory ??

LOL, clueless. Please don't ever invest your money in shares or currency.

BTC/ETH and all of the others are still WAY above centralised currencies, 2500% growth in under a year?

futurism.com/cry…uy/

Perhaps it's people like you selling their GPU's after all

Not sure where you are coming from but thanks for the insults.

Just passing info that the gpu mining crazy has finished for the time being when main stream internet media reports it's dead, especially with the dag increasing and also proof of stake etc,it's dead.

The smart money bought the currency (eth) at the bottom and sold a month ago at the top. The noobies that bought gpus to mine are the shoe shine boys

I hope and you hope they deliver in a few weeks, I have had one on pre-order since June and still nothing. The last thing I got told was end of August AMD should be sending out stock. I even tried ebuyer and novatech, same response Im getting.

Hopefully the mining crazy will die down a little to stop this or IF AMD and Nvidia get those Mining cards out.

You'll be charged the GBP rate for the price you ordered at at the time of dispatch.

Why would you pay with a UK card though? Use Revolut or Monzo, 15 minutes work and you're setup for good.

On this deal alone it'll save you £10 or so.

I think you've missed the point there. He's saying the mining craze has passed (which it has) not that you can't still make money on the price of ETH and the like. Like all cryptos they get harder and harder to mine, and ETH passed a threshold recently that made it much more difficult.

Thanks a lot! Just never used it before and heard people complain about issues while using it.
