Mirage : from the RTX 3060 finally at 330€?

Mirage : from the RTX 3060 finally at 330€?

The RTX 3060 to 330USD in North America?

Clearly the echoes we get from wholesalers and other retailers do not bring us this message at all. However, on the other side of the Atlantic, at BestBuy and Newegg (the largest North American distributors) leaks seem to indicate good news. These two American distributors are nowadays often the only places that offer graphics cards at the prices announced by NVIDIA on certain references. If we refer to the leak on the product page, we could find RTX 3060 from Gigabyte and EVGA at 330 USD (but obviously only from Newegg). The cheapest card listed by BestBuy so far is the EVGA RTX 3060 XC with a price of 390 USD. It seems that these distributors have a privileged agreement with Nvidia (a bit like LDLC with us). Does this mean that Nvidia will try by one means or another to enforce the announced public price ( 330€ with us ) ? RTX 3060 prix

A mirage with the complicity of some dealers?

The other possibility, unfortunately the most likely, is that these cards at 330€ (330USD at the American retailers mentioned), are immediately out of stock … A story that will bring back memories to some. Usually, distributors at least pretend to launch graphics cards at their “target” price and then let inflation take over. However, according to our current information, the starting price of the RTX 3060 at the brands does not allow at all to respect the price announced by Nvidia at the beginning of the year. The last prices that we have mentioned show a wholesale price excluding tax, much higher than the public price… Resellers are thus not responsible for all evils. Finally, our sources at the manufacturers tell us, as for the other Ampere references, that the Nvidia public price is absolutely not sustainable given the purchase price of GPUs and the various prices on ancillary components. In this story it is obviously not forbidden to say that the reseller and the brand have a slightly heavier hand than usual on the margins. But it seems nevertheless that from the start, the equation presented to the public by Nvidia is not tenable. This dupe game is clearly wearing out the whole mode. But this time, the minors will not be able to be pointed at.
