Let us move on and start our testing with computing-related benchmarks.
On eBay: from $850 to $1,100 and more (depending on how speculation-daring the scalper is).
On Amazon: from $1,200 to $1,500.
On Best Buy: at $750 but unobtanium (sold out).
On NewEgg: $1,050.
CONCLUSION: Pass. Wait for 2022 or 2023. While waiting, if for “normal” desktop use, buy an AMD APU, continue to use the “old” card(s) from your stash or go with a used sub-$200 RX570 or equivalent on eBay. Eventually you will be able to get a high-end workstation graphics card (if that’s what you are looking for) some time in the next 24 months at a “normal” price.
Tres bonne carte graphique pour jouer en
