The gaming flagship NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti for the first time since its launch has become cheaper than the recommended retail price of 1199 dollars. The Gigabyte Gaming RTX 3080 Ti can now be purchased for $ 1,099 on Newegg. Along with the discount, the model costs almost as much as the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT.
And Newegg sells a premium version with a clock speed of 1710 MHz (reference is 1665 MHz), three fans, RGB Fusion backlight and metal backplate.
It is unclear whether the price has been reduced forever or whether it is a temporary action.
Previously, NVIDIA generation Ampere graphics cards were almost impossible to find at the recommended price. The supply was affected by a shortage of components and high demand from miners. The next generation GeForce RTX 4090 and 4080 graphics cards should be released in October, so the reduction in prices for older models is not surprising.
