Graphics Cards: Do you still want to spend your money on the RTX 30 series?

Over the past few weeks, graphics card prices have been declining. The new generation is just coming …

Although the situation is slowly improving, the shortage of electronic components that have plagued us since the onset of the epidemic is still having a direct impact on supply and prices. Until a few months ago, it was almost impossible to get your hands on the latest generation graphics card and at best, you had to pay an obscene bill.

Graphics card prices finally ease


Take the example of the GeForce RTX 3060: with its position in the center of the range, it represents the choice of cause. Let’s just say, it never was like this! A few weeks ago, this graphics card sold for over 700 or 800, while it was shown by Nvidia at a list price of $ 329.

Although the economic situation is deteriorating due to rising energy prices, things are developing in favor of buyers. Distribution lines have strengthened, speculation is slowly calming down, and Ethereum prices are falling. As a result, demand is steady, shrinking even in some markets, and GeForce RTX 3060 12 GB can now be found for less than 500 euros or less than the RTX 3060 Ti € 600.

The RTX 3070 Ti has the same look: a few months ago its price fluctuated from 1200 to 1400, now it is around 800 [-33 %]. Tito for the RTX 3050, which went from 600 to 400 or RTX 3080, which costs between 1600 and 1050.

Is it the right time to explode?

Now that Sofel is falling, the question we ask ourselves is: Should we (really) take advantage of this price drop to jump on these graphics cards? Of course not … As you know, a new generation is coming, whether it’s Nvidia, the RTX 40 series, or AMD’s RX 7000.

Although no official date has been set yet, some sources suggest a presentation in the fall. If you can wait, it makes a lot of sense to do so. Otherwise, take advantage of price reductions.
