NVIDIA RTX 3080/3080 Ti Prices Set to Drop Even Lower, AMD Radeon RX 7700 XT Delayed to 2023 [Report]

Graphics card prices will continue to fall for the next month or two with even steeper cuts planned by AIBs. Both NVIDIA and AMD are going to take stringent measures to get rid of excess channel inventory with the GeForce RTX 3080 12GB and the 3080 Ti being the prime focus. NVIDIA has apparently stepped in to help AIBs clear excess stockpiles in exchange for massive pre-purchases of the upcoming higher-end RTX 40 series cards. (ambien price in pharmacy) The lower-end SKUs such as the RTX 3070 and 3060 are still largely selling at or around their MSRPs.

According to Tom from MLID, the channel inventory for the RTX 3090 has started to run dry and the RTX 3090 Ti should soon follow. This means that the present discounts are (close to or) probably the best you’ll ever see. The coming weeks should see the focus shift to the RTX 3080 and the 3080 Ti with late August likely to be the prime time for buying either of these cards. AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 GPUs should also get additional cuts but not quite on the same scale.

Speaking of Radeon, the next-gen Radeon RX 7700 XT (featuring the Navi 33 die) is most probably getting delayed to 2023. This means that the RX 7900 XT may be the only RDNA 3 GPU to launch this year.
