GeForce RTX 3000 cards up to 20% more expensive

IN LETTER:

  • EVGA and ZOTAC increased the prices of Nvidia GeForce RTX 30XX series graphics cards;
  • the increases range from 3.9% to 22.6% and are greater for the smaller company (ZOTAC);
  • earlier the prices of their graphics chips were raised by ASUS;
  • the situation is a result of the introduction of a new duty in the USA on components manufactured in China.
  • Tom’s Hardware reports that EVGA and ZOTAC have raised the prices of RTX 30XX series graphics cards (previously ASUS made a similar move). In some cases, the increases reach over 22%. The main reason is the new 25% duty imposed in the USA on components manufactured in China. The differences are significant – especially in the case of the smaller company (ZOTAC), which could not afford to bear most of the costs on itself and had to pass them on to customers.

      GeForce RTX 3080 Ti 20 GB and RTX 3060 12 GB on the way; Super models in plans

    As you can see, the increases are really big and, combined with poor availability, can make the investment in a new computer or improvement of the old one a much greater burden on our wallets. The situation is particularly problematic in the case of GeForce RTX 3090 and GeFoce RTX 3070.

    It can be expected that the prices of AMD graphics chips will increase in a similar way, although we still have to wait for official reports on this topic.

    The increases will not only affect graphics cards

    Unfortunately, the bad news is not over yet – the tax in question will have a similar effect on motherboards. The editors of Tom’s Hardware expect that it can be particularly bad in the case of budget structures prepared for Intel processors (we are talking about the B460 and H410 chipsets), the supply of which is not sufficient to meet the market demand.

      RTX 3080 version with 20 GB VRAM is coming soon

    It is worth emphasizing that such strong increases take place at a time when most people tend to tighten their belts, or at least approach their money with a little more attention and caution, due to the uncertain situation in the world and the labor market. The above prices are for the US market (hence dollar amounts), but We will probably observe increases at a similar level also in Poland.

    We expect the price situation to calm down in the second half of the year. Now we still have to look at rising prices by producers and higher transport costs to Poland. We have no influence on it. We can still count on more favorable exchange rates – said Kamil Szwarbuła from the online store X-Kom.pl in a statement for dobreprogramy.pl.

    In short, it remains to wait and hope that the situation will improve – Much will depend on how the new US administration arranges its relations with China.
