Rumor: Nvidia will reduce the price of high-end RTX graphics cards

People love sales because modern gaming technology, or even electronics in general, can be pricey. Amazon Prime Day this year included several tech-related bargains recently. Everything was on sale, including video game gear and peripherals.

Many will sadly recall that this had specific Nvidia and AMD graphics cards, which were previously rather expensive. Fortunately, costs are generally down, and team green appears to wish to maintain this trend.

According to a recent article from PC Gamer, Nvidia may consider lowering the cost of some of its high-end Ampere devices. Hardware like the RTX 3080, RTX 3080 Ti, RTX 3090, and most recently released RTX 3090 Ti might decrease prices by up to $500.

Though they won’t be at MSRP, it seems that the reductions are being offered in anticipation of the impending Ada Lovelace line. Suppliers may sell more goods in time for the new architecture by lowering the pricing of these cards.

This development is intriguing since it comes just after Prime Day sales on graphics cards. The price of specific GPUs, including the RTX 3080 Ti stated earlier, was 26 percent less than usual, while the AMD RX 6900 XT was sold for as little as $900 with a 36 percent discount.

Despite how exciting these offers are, they represent the graphics hardware market’s more costly end. It depends on personal tastes if the 3090 Ti is still worth the discounted price when the Lovelace and RDNA 3 series are on the way.

It was reported that Nvidia would introduce the RTX 40-series in September. However, it’s been said that the tech giant would push out the launch of the next generation from team green until perhaps Q4 due to an excess of Ampere cards. Of course, at this point, it’s only a rumor.

In addition to the price cuts implemented by Nvidia, statistics reveal that graphics card costs have decreased by 57 percent since the year’s beginning. The GPU industry seems to be doing much better overall than it was two years ago.

As we approach the next generation of goods from teams green and red, consumers may be interested in keeping an eye on current-gen devices to see how much costs will decrease.
