The semiconductor supply shortage has affected the final cost of several electronic devices. We have seen products retailing for up to 2-3 times their suggested price.
Surprisingly, EVGA is retailing the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti Black Gaming GPU at a discounted cost of $1899, about $100 below its MSRP.
A significant factor for said price is better stock availability. The current price is still not as affordable as one would like, but it is a change for the better.
Tech-enthusiasts are delighted, and many have already grabbed their hands on the Ampere-powered GPUs.
Similarly, the MSI Ventus GeForce 3080 is also retailing with a modified price, i.e., $849, compared to its initial price of over $1000.
This comes when specific GeForce RTX 3080 models, originally priced at $699, are selling for $2000. The increased prices are burning a hole in people’s pockets, and fans are unhappy.
NVIDIA seems to have figured out an effective supply chain to tackle the chip shortage issue. This could mean that the RTX 4000 series processors might be closer to their MSRP. The flagship GPU GeForce RTX 4090 promises a range of sophisticated professional applications, so along with the suitable price, it could be a steal deal!
