The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 has come close to the MSRP for the first time since the pandemic. This is in accordance with the rapid drop in GPU prices over the week. You can now get one of the high-performing EVGA XC Gaming Variant GPUs for $389.99 in the US which is just $50 more than the MSRP.
In the UK, you can get the Inno Twin LHR variant for 379.99 Euros which is 79 euros higher than the official price. Both the prices have come very near to the MSRP which gives an opportunity to gamers to upgrade their PC. You can get an excellent 1080p graphics card at an affordable price if you have a decent budget.
Some of them may not consider this option better and may even hold on for a while to get fresh GPU releases with next-generation tech from Nvidia and Intel. Especially those who are already using RTX 2060 might not go for an RTX 3060. You can witness the release of the RTX 4000 series and Intel’s ARC series later this year.
Nvidia also tweeted its new Restocked and Reloaded webpage which lists the available GPUs this week. The tweet also mentioned that more will be available in the US in the coming weeks. The prices of the graphics cards are falling by around $10 per week and there are some fluctuations. But the price drop is continuous and it is expected to reach cheaper prices within this year.
The manufacturing and supply chain of the GPUs are stabilizing slowly and this will increase the availability and affordability more in the coming days. Also, with the new generation GPUs released, there is a good chance that the existing cards will drop furthermore.
