NVIDIA and AMD GPUs Will Be Even Cheaper to Buy Later This Year, Green Team Prepares Aggressive Price Reduction Strategy
It’s only been a few months and we’ve seen the GPU market crash dramatically. Several factors led to this, such as the crypto crash, a declining PC market, and weak overall demand due to the anticipation of next-gen GPUs.
According to supply chain news, at the end of August, NV and AMD will take more aggressive measures to reduce the price of graphics cards, among which NV’s price reduction is larger than AMD’s.
Currently, most AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards sit well below MSRPs that were hard to come by for nearly two years, and now the same GPU makers are struggling to sell them. This weighed on AMD and NVIDIA, as evidenced by their second quarter financials, where the gaming dGPU segment is not doing very well and overall shipments have taken a hit. Now AMD and NVIDIA are deciding to further slash the prices of their consumer GPUs, with the green team apparently taking aggressive steps to eliminate their inventory. It is reported that another round of price cuts may hit the retail segment by the end of August, so we can expect graphics cards to get cheaper.
Currently, NVIDIA’s high-end graphics cards such as the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti are available at up to -47.5% off MSRP prices. If this report is close to the truth, then we can see a price drop of over -50% from MSRP. Additionally, NVIDIA has reportedly resumed production of its 12GB RTX 3080 graphics card to deal with excess inventory of GA102 GPUs, a chip used for a total of 5 different graphics cards.
So it looks like those looking for a new NVIDIA and AMD graphics card can expect even lower prices in the coming months, but it remains to be seen how this affects the launch and pricing of the GeForce 40 series GPUs. new generation.
