Waiting for the enevitable
Current Arc is a first Gen get it out the door model. in that light it is a good starter for 10, Intel will iterate and get better quickly.
Nivida seems to have missed a few pointers. They are competing with consoles that cost about $400 all in, why would spend $900 on just a graphics card and then all the supporting hardware? only people that can afford these things are overpaid or Youtubers who get them for free.
PC shipments are starting to tank and there is no Crypto mining to support card shipments, Nvidia also have a massive surplus stock of the last model left to shift. Nvidia's answer to raise prices even further on the new model to help support the prices of the old model, but each sale of a 3000 is someone not buying the newer model. They are also cheating/lying on model names so they can again overcharge.
This started with the 2000 models that were around 20% over priced continued with the 3000 which was supported by excess demand and is now just running out of control.
Along with the excessive power requirements (add a new $300 PSU) and the loss of FVGA highlighting their poor partner practices, it feels like Nvidia's house of cards is teetering towards collapse in a perfect storm. Just needs AMD to come in low and hard for knock out blow.
Maybe ARM will buy Nvidia.......
