NVIDIA will lower the recommended price of the most powerful RTX 30 by up to 25%, according to leaks
When the RTX 30 were announcedin addition to its performance, the price reduction that NVIDIA had applied regarding the RTX 20 was also surprising. However, the increase in cryptomining together with the scarcity of components and other factors such as the lack of stock made their prices in the market were much higher than usual.
It seems that with the fall of bitcoin and the decline in demand for these graphics cards, prices stabilize again and are already beginning to drop. Just yesterday we saw an RTX 3090 Ti for 1,899 euros, price impossible to see just a few months ago, and now it has been leaked that NVIDIA is proposing a new reduction in its official prices of the most powerful RTX.
In this waythe RTX 3090 Ti would go from a recommended price of $1,999 to $1,499, a discount of 25%. The RTX 3090 would drop $200 to $1,299s from the $1,499 that was the official price. On the other hand, the RTX 3080 Ti drops from $1,199 to $1,099. In addition, the 12 GB RTX 3080 is placed at $799, a graphic that had no official price until now.
In the case of the RTX 3080 and lower models, the official prices are maintained, although it is even now that we can see that the graphics cards reach those levels after the general price increase last year.
In addition to the stabilization of the situation, another factor that could be behind this supposed decision to lower prices would be the accumulation of stock due to the drop in demand and the imminent launch of the RTX 40, which would be delayed until December to release to the current stock RTX 30.
