Reports are coming from Japan that the price of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 will continue to rise over time. It should be remembered that this graphics card went on sale on February 25 at a recommended price of $ 329, but at the moment of truth it could only be purchased at prices around $ 519-539, while in our country it did between $ 700-750.
Today, there is nothing in stock, and stores around the world are selling small number of graphics cards in pre-assembled PCs. Without going any further, if we go to the Amazon or Newegg and put “GeForce RTX 3060” in search bar, there will not be a single dedicated graphics card, we will only get similar products already installed into a desktop or laptop.
If this shortage continues long over time, and demand continues to be the same or worse, then it is logical that the prices will rise. Specifically, according to the Japanese website Hermitage Akihabara, they revealed that a local store sold 20x Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 graphics cards in just 1 hour despite the extra cost, and they also announced that during the interview they were able to meet a representative of the agency, who revealed that “The price of the GeForce RTX 3060 will continue to rise in the future,” so things will get worse with time. Also there is no Founders Edition of GeForce RTX 3060 either, which you can purchase from official website of Nvidia.
