Four of the best graphics cards have just received decent price reductions at US retailers Newegg and Amazon. Consumers can save up to 25% on selected MSI GeForce RTX 3070, GeForce RTX 3060 Ti, GeForce RTX 3060 and GeForce RTX 3050 graphics cards.
Although Nvidia’s latest GeForce RTX 40 series graphics cards have been in the market for quite some time, DigiTimes’ recent report states that Nvidia has not increased their production. Alternatively, it may be that Nvidia partners have a large inventory of previous-generation GeForce RTX 30 series products that they need to offload. Additionally, Twitter user Sebastián Castellanos recently spotted a series of Ampere graphics cards on Newegg being sold for less than their MSRP.
The GeForce RTX 3070 was launched in 2020 with an MSRP of $499. The MSI GeForce RTX 3070 Ventus 2X 8G OC LHR, which usually sells for $539.99, is now down to $449.99 on Newegg. This graphics card is currently the cheapest custom GeForce RTX 3070 on the retail market.
Consumers who do not want to spend more than $400 on a graphics card can still find refuge in the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti. The MSI GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Ventus 3X 8G OC LHR, which is based on the latest GDDR6X SKU, is now being sold for $314.99 with the promo code VGAEXCMSET449, down from its normal price of $449.99 and well below the original MSRP of $399 for the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti.
The MSI GeForce RTX 3060 Aero ITX 12G OC is already available for $279.99, allowing you to save 23%. The graphics card is based on the original GeForce RTX 3060 with 12 GB of memory. The MSI GeForce RTX 3060 Aero ITX 12G OC is an ITX graphics card that even fits into the most compact systems. The graphics card is available on both Newegg and Amazon.
Meanwhile, the MSI GeForce RTX 3060 Ventus 2X 8G OC is being sold for $259.99, $80 cheaper. It is based on a slightly reduced variant of the GeForce RTX 3060 with only 8 GB of memory and a narrower 128-bit memory interface. However, the graphics card still has value for gamers on a budget, as the MSI GeForce RTX 3060 Ventus 2X 8G OC is priced at less than $260 on Newegg and Amazon.
Finally, there is also an offer for the GeForce RTX 3050. The MSI GeForce RTX 3050 Ventus 2X 8G OC has been reduced to $219.99 on Newegg and Amazon. The graphics card had an MSRP of $249. While it is not the fastest, it is still a viable option for gamers who do not need a lot of power or who want something better than integrated graphics.
So far, the discounts seem to be limited to MSI's GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards. We have not seen similar offers from other providers such as Gigabyte, Asus, or Zotac. However, if retailers are struggling to move Ampere stocks, we would not be surprised at all if other brands start to offer discounts on their inventory.
