RTX 3060: the card that will shine this summer

RTX 3060: the card that will shine this summer

We told you about the contradictory information about a return to normalcy in the graphics card market a few days ago. We take advantage of our latest information to complete the picture and give you a little more material if you’re thinking of making a purchase in the next few days, especially of an RTX 3060… Who remembers today that this card was launched at… 335€?

Memories, memories……

A market still tense but less crazy

As we speak, there is no real improvement in the situation as far as Nvidia is concerned. As we’ve said before, the chameleon has not found a hidden production capacity during a visit to Samsung that would allow it to recover. The same goes for the messages about the RTX 2060 or the small GTX being discontinued: these cards have a different manufacturing process than the 30 series. However, there are several signals that we can clearly see a relaxation on some references. Here is what we can say. RTX 3060

Better on the RTX 3060, the RTX 3070 in tension this summer

The situation is easing for several reasons, but the main one is the return of a certain level of stock at brands and distributors. So beware, we are far from a plethora of stock but the information we have from distributors is clear: cards that were sold in a few hours or even minutes until a few weeks ago, require a little more time… See a little more effort from the resellers. That’s why brands and distributors are saying that they have to lower their margins. Because the most important information is there, there is no decrease on the part of Nvidia, it is well on the side of the brands and the distributors that the decrease is committed. RTX 3060 under 500€ soon? The card most “favored” by this situation is the RTX 3060. Not long ago it was one of the preferred choices of miners (with the 3060Ti), with the fall of cryptos, the switch to LHR chips… A certain amount of stock is available. We must add to that the summer, the changes of concern related to the exit of pandemic (vacations, restaurants, swimming pool …). According to our information, we can expect to find the RTX 3060 around 500€ and possibly even below from July. As we said, this situation is not the result of an industrial miracle or other. The supply (volumes) is still the same. On the other hand, the irrational demand that pushed some people to buy cards at double or triple their price is running out of steam. A situation that gives back choice to customers and the possibility to compare instead of jumping on a generous “drop” here or there. In these conditions, margins are falling and prices are returning to a normal level, still high but less crazy. On the other hand, in terms of production, it is the RTX 3070 that should suffer in July with a lower availability. For the latter, we will have to wait a little longer.
