  Vikings OL Dru Samia tests positive for COVID-19 Vikings offensive lineman Dru Samia has tested positive for COVID-19. Contact tracing is being performed, and Samia and anyone deemed a high-risk contact will not be permitted to travel with the team for tomorrow night’s game against the Bears. © Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports Samia, a 2019 fourth-rounder, started four games for Minnesota earlier this year before returning to a reserve role. But the Vikings just released Pat Elflein and now find themselves without their top backup at guard. Plus, there is a good chance that there will indeed be high-risk contacts given the nature of O-line/D-line play.

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 follows the beloved Nvidia Turing by offering fantastic performance, while also keeping its price at the same point that However, as with any major graphics card launch, there will be dozens of aftermarket graphics cards from companies like MSI, Asus, Zotac and more.

Nvidia 's launch of the GeForce RTX 3080 graphics cards have left many feeling left in the cold as the cards sold out almost immediately. We could see some improvements soon, though. According to EVGA 's global product management director Jacob Freeman (via

Nvidia and AMD addressed the great GPU shortage today, revealing it may take many months before you’ll easily find a card like the RTX 3080 on shelves. They didn’t say how much a renewed Trump import tax on graphics cards might impact their prices — but now, Nvidia partners EVGA and Zotac may have done that for us

  Sure enough, EVGA and Zotac have raised prices on the Nvidia RTX 3080 and beyond

Both graphics card manufacturers have now raised their prices across the board, with EVGA following Asus’s lead by openly admitting at the top of its website that it’s making these adjustments. Zotac, on the other hand, appears to have quietly raised prices not once, but twice in recent weeks — and thanks to the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine, we can show you how both company’s prices have changed (at their own stores, anyhow).

Broncos DC Ed Donatell back home recovering after COVID-related hospitalization

  Broncos DC Ed Donatell back home recovering after COVID-related hospitalization Broncos defensive coordinator Ed Donatell required hospitalization after contracting the coronavirus, according to the team. The second-year Denver DC was hospitalized last week but discharged Sunday. Donatell, 63, has been battling COVID-19 symptoms since Oct. 31 and has missed the past three games. Donatell, who is in his third stint with the franchise, is one of a few Broncos staffers to have contracted the virus. Running backs coach Curtis Modkins did so in October, and offensive line coach Mike Munchak was in the team’s COVID protocol.

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 suffered a similar fate at launch, so it’s not like the company didn’t know this could happen. We've just spoken to Nvidia : “We are seeing unprecedented demand for the RTX 3080 . We have been in production since August and

  • Current EVGA prices
  • Previous EVGA prices (November 20th)
  • Current Zotac prices
  • Previous Zotac prices (January 3rd)
  • Previous Zotac prices (December 18th)

Here’s EVGA’s statement, just for posterity:

Due to ongoing events, EVGA has made price adjustments on the GeForce RTX 30 Series products. This change was necessary due to several factors and will be effective January 11, 2021. EVGA has worked to reduce and minimize these costs as much as possible. For those who are currently in the EVGA.com Notify Queue system or Step-Up Queue, EVGA will honor the original MSRP pricing through April 16th, 2021 if your purchase position is processed before this date.

Like EVGA suggests, its price hikes aren’t that drastic — only a $70 increase on most cards, and it’s nice that they’re honoring their trade-up program for a few months. The RTX 3060 Ti is just $460, the same a friend of mine recently paid at a Central Computers store for that exact card in the SF Bay Area.

Zotac, on the other hand, has raised the price of even its most basic cards by $90-$100, and far more than that for the RTX 3090:

  • from $440 to $500 and now $530 for an RTX 3060 Ti
  • from $540 to $600 and now $640 for an RTX 3070
  • from $750 to $780 and now $840 for an RTX 3080
  • from $1550 to $1580 and now $1900 for an RTX 3090

None of this matters unless you can find one, of course. For that, again, here’s the latest guidance we have from AMD and Nvidia.
