GPU prices rise in China

GPU prices rise in China

For some time now, the trend in China’s component market is always a good indication of what will happen here in the coming weeks…And unfortunately the news is not good for GPUs.

nvidia GPU shortage

Indeed, for a few weeks now, Nvidia GPU prices, mainly, have skyrocketed. The main reason is known and we already talked about it some time ago: the supply of RTX 30 GPUs was to undergo “a hole in the air” in September, some sources indicated that the RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 3060 would suffer a drop in deliveries of about 50%.

A combination of phenomena hits GPUs

Alongside this problem, which Nvidia says is purely temporary, other tensions among the chameleon’s partners have appeared on the assembly lines of the cards Finally, we must not overlook two last factors that explain this increase. Firstly, a rebound in mining in connection with the strong revaluation of Ethereum. But we can not help but think that some speculation about the future price increase of founders (including Samsung) has not a small part of responsibility in this story. According to figures from Videocardz and converted into €, the increase is very noticeable. In one month the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti for example has increased by almost 75€. The RTX 3080 and RTX 3070 have seen their prices increase by 39 and 50 euros respectively. As for the “small” RTX 3060 and RTX 3060 Ti the increase is between 25 and 45 euros. This trend will obviously have its equivalent in Europe in the coming days. It is difficult to say whether the levels of increases will be equivalent to what is happening in China. However, our sources at the main distributors confirm that there will be a big drop in card shipments in the first few days of September.
