Graphics cards have seen plenty of discounts in the past few days. The higher-end offerings have seen the biggest price cuts, while the mid-range GPUs are still priced a bit higher than most consumers would like.
Both AMD and Nvidia have seen significant price cuts. AMD has been a bit better in this regard, but Nvidia has finally started to catch up. Recently, Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3090 saw a huge discount, below $1000.
The MSI Ventus 3X OC RTX 3080 Ti is selling at a near 30% discount compared to its original price on BestBuy.
Regarding performance, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti fits right in between the GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3090. While the difference in performance between all three graphics cards is not huge, the extra VRAM provided by the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti over the GeForce RTX 3080 is very useful for 4K gaming. The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti comes with 12GB of GDDR6X VRAM.
At launch, the GeForce RTX 3080 was praised for its 4K gaming capabilities, but the limited VRAM capacity was always a concern. The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti fixes that problem with an added boost to specifications.
At this price, Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is a solid deal for any consumer looking to buy a high-end GPU. Similarly, AMD’s Radeon RX 6900 was selling for $699 recently, providing more options to consumers in this price category.
However, it should be noted that the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4000 series next-Gen graphics cards based on Ada Lovelace architecture are right around the corner. Nvidia’s new line-up is expected to improve over the last generation significantly. Perhaps it would be wise to wait for further price cuts on current-generation graphics cards.
Nvidia is expected to reveal more information on the upcoming GeForce RTX 4000 line-up at GTC 2022. For consumers who have not pulled the trigger on a new purchase, it might be best to keep an eye out for this event.
