Of course, manufacturers also have a reason may not be directly said, that is, the previous generation of graphics card inventory and pressure, the new generation of graphics card pricing to keep up with the generation of graphics card distance, otherwise not conducive to RTX 30 series of graphics card clearance, after all, still sell a few quarters.
NVIDIA's new generation of graphics card performance and price increases, everyone hopes for AMD, after all, A card has long been known to be cost-effective, but this year may be disappointed, AMD is in the same position as NVIDIA, facing the same pressure on pricing.
According to Wild_C, AMD will only release high-end graphics cards this year, and those will cost at least $1000.The NAVI31 core for the flagship card is likely to come in two product prices, with the RX 7900 costing $1,299 for 20GB and the RX 7900 XT costing $1,599 for 24GB.
That's even more expensive than NVIDIA. The RTX 4080 costs just $1,199 for 16GB, and AMD's RX 7900, which has 4GB more video memory, may cost $100 more.
If you consider the domestic situation, the price of these two graphics cards is even more terrible,Exchange rate conversion will be 9200, 11,000 or so, the tax price easily exceeded 10,000 yuan.
