    Hard pass at that price. Amazon is losing its mind. They have a Samsung 980 Pro 2tb listed as “51% off” even though they are listing the “list price of $379 reduced 51% to $179” when Best Buy lists the same model number 980 Pro 2tb for $279 reduced to $189”. Amazon is flat out lying about list prices and jacking up prices for the holidays.

    They can keep their overpriced items.

    The price is fair imo because…

    #1 It’s a brand new kingpin card with the original box and accessories.
    #2 You’ll be getting a card that hasn’t been used and abused.
    #3 EVGA no longer makes video cards, so this is a good opportunity for anyone to buy a piece of evga history.

    Amazon isn’t setting the price on the cards. The cards are listed on the evga amazon store, so evga is setting the price here, but clearly the cards are in stock at amazons warehouse, so they won’t be shipped directly from evga.

    For being sold from evga store, does it still get warranty "as if" brand new back in the time?

    Should get a full 3 year warranty. I’m very surprised they are selling them as you think they would still be using them for rma.

    Sold by Amazon, Shipped by Amazon. That isn’t set by EVGA, that is set by Amazon.

    Even when scalpers were able to list their cards on Amazon, before they were blocked, they would show on the EVGA store. The brand shows on EVGA store, even when it isn’t set by evga.

    Perfect example, go to the evga store, click the 3070ti that is listed for $845, sold and shipped by someone not Amazon or EVGA, and evga doesn’t set the price. Amazon bundled the brand name, nothing to do with the brand linking to the brand themselves.

    Most likely. It will be a great collector for someone, for sure.

    While interesting from a collector's standpoint, I don't think many people will be willing to part with $800 for a 8 year old card. It's not really old enough to be considered a "collectors item" and not nearly worth the price to play any modern games on. So in my opinion it's in a weird no mans land of irrelevance/obsolescence. Maybe in another 10 years it'll fetch that asking price......

    I actually just got done playing with one of these. 
     
    With evga not making gpu's anymore, and not being able to get a 4090 KP because of that, I said forget it I'll just buy an older one to play with. The card is absolutely stunning to look at. It's a great collectors piece for sure. It's my favorite KP out of all of them. I'm glad I actually bought it as I was feeling a little guilty not owning a EVGA gpu anymore after I sold off both my 3090 Ti FTW3's. I won't be selling this 980 ti KP as I plan to keep it forever as a memento.

    $785 was a deal as I received a gpu with 81.4% ASIC quality which evga was selling for $1049 back then... https://www.evga.com/articles/archive/00944/evga-geforce-gtx-980-ti-kingpin/default.asp
     
    1520/2079 on normal vbios with stock max allowed volts of 1.212. 
     
    Nvidia is forcing 980 ti users to use 1.212mv all the time on the latest drivers... https://www.reddit.com/r/overclocking/comments/wbjx8l/i_can_no_longer_change_core_voltage_on_my_card/
     
    I wasn't able to adjust my voltage slider either, so I ended up using the classified tool to figure out what nvidia was doing, and they are making all 980 ti users use max volts 24/7. 
     
    Guess they want users to upgrade. 
     
    Yes, I still have my gigabyte 4090. I was just playing with the new KP.
