Nvidia RTX 3000 graphic cards he may see further price cuts as August arrives, or it’s the latest rumor from the grapevine.
How VideoCardz (opens in a new tab) I noticed that this theory was emitted by a Chinese source (ZOL (opens in a new tab)by My drivers (opens in a new tab)) and it is believed that Nvidia’s price cuts will continue – and indeed that we will see deeper sell-offs in a few weeks to shift Ampere’s stock.
The story at ZOL – add your own skepticism to it all – is that price cuts will become “more aggressive” in late August and not only for Nvidia but also for AMD. It is claimed that Team Green will make more price cuts than AMD in an attempt to further boost RTX 3000 sales more than the RX 6000 (Nvidia GPU and so they are already much more popular in the current climate).
It is not clear which models Nvidia could lower asking prices for, but we can count on lower-end GPU prices, which has already happened – just look at a huge discount recently seen on the flagship RTX 3090 Tifor example.
We hope the prices will be lowered for cheaper Ampere graphics cards as well, such as RTX 3060 and 3070; significant price reductions in this regard could represent serious opportunities to gain (eventually).
Analysis: Wait and see, this is our advice (again)
While we must be careful with the source here – more than the mere gossip mill nuggets – we are a bit more inclined to allow a further benefit from the doubt given that this is obviously in line with what is already happening and with what is widespread . projected for Nvidia GPU prices in the near future.
This would not be a surprise given the repeated rumors about it Excess inventory of Nvidia RTX 3000 graphics cardsas well as the need to balance helping partners clean up inventory with deciding when to market next-generation GPUs (pushing RTX 4000 too quickly, and this will further reduce sales, which is already problematic, as we have seendue to the cryptocurrency failure and the cost of living crisis).
Of particular interest is the prospect that AMD will engage in similar price cuts, and that this could become a discount battle to sell the current generation of products ahead of their successors.
In any case, we advised people to wait for bigger price cuts from Nvidia, and this grapevine chatter underlines that even more. It’s certainly worth waiting a few weeks to see where prices are moving with Nvidia graphics cards – and indeed AMD – and find out how much truth is in the rumors of greater drops. After all, what do you really have to lose by not buying now and just wait a minute? Our suggestion is little, while you can gain a lot in terms of potential savings.
There is also the possibility that with the kind of speculation being consistently felt in the GPU world, more pronounced price drops will become a self-fulfilling prophecy as more people will wait and as a result there is a greater need to stimulate declining sales.
