Nvidia and AMD solved today’s serious GPU shortage, and it revealed that it may take several months to easily find a graphics card like RTX 3080 on the shelf.they No It is said that Trump’s reimbursement of import taxes on graphics cards will affect its prices-but now, NVIDIA partners EVGA and Zotac may have done it for us
The two graphics card manufacturers have now increased their prices across the board, and under the leadership of Asus, EVGA has raised prices by publicly acknowledging these adjustments at the top of its website. On the other hand, Zotac does not seem to raise prices quietly in recent weeks, but raises prices twice. Thanks to the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine, we can show you how the prices of the two companies have changed (in any case, in their own store).
This is a statement from EVGA, only for future generations:
Due to ongoing events, EVGA has adjusted the price of GeForce RTX 30 series products. Due to a variety of factors, this change is necessary, and it will take effect on January 11, 2021. EVGA has worked hard to reduce and minimize these costs as much as possible. For users currently in the EVGA.com notification queue system or upgrade queue, if your purchase position is processed before this date, EVGA will be priced at the original suggested retail price before April 16, 2021.
As suggested by EVGA, its price increase is not very big-most cards only increase by $70, and they are very happy that they can honor their redemption plan for a few months. The RTX 3060 Ti is only $460, and a friend of mine recently paid the same fee for the exact card in the SF Bay Area at the Central Computer Store.
On the other hand, Zotac even increased the price of its most basic card by US$90-100, far exceeding the RTX 3090:
- RTX 3060 Ti ranges from US$440 to US$500 and is now US$530
- RTX 3070 ranges from US$540 to US$600 and is now US$640
- RTX 3080 from $750 to $780, now it is $840
- RTX 3090 from $1550 to $1580, now it is $1900
Of course, none of this matters unless you find one. To this end, this is again the latest guide we got from AMD and Nvidia.
