Normally, the price of an electronic product goes down gradually after it is launched, and it will usually be lower than the initial price before long, but the graphics cards of the past two or three years are an exception.
Due to the influence of the mining tide, even for graphics cards that have been on the market for a year or two, the price is much higher than the original price, flat and lower than the initial price.
Now, the world is finally returning to normal, although the overall price of graphics cards is rising, but at least it is not so outrageous.
At present, in mainland China and the United States, as many as five of all six models of AMD RX 7000 series and NVIDIA RTX 40 series new generation graphics cards have been broken, that is, lower than the initial price, while even the flagship RTX 4090 is flat.
In terms of AMD, although the flagship RX 7900 XT has not been competitive enough, the price is quite strong. At present, the lowest price that can be found is around 7699 yuan, which is only 300 yuan lower than the initial price.
RX 7900 XT has long fallen below 6,000 yuan, but after reaching 5999 yuan, it has not continued to decline for more than half a month.
In the United States, however, ASRock's RX 7900 XT Phantom version recently dropped to $779.99, the lowest price ever and 13% cheaper than it was when it first went public.
In terms of NVIDIA, RTX 4090 is still high, with a minimum of 12999 yuan, but at least the IPO price is flat.
RTX 4080 has a low performance-to-price ratio from the very beginning, and it is also the most ruthless price reduction of the new generation, with the lowest at about 8499 yuan, which is 1000 yuan lower than the first issue.
RTX 4070 Ti fell very little, but the latest RTX 4070, which broke out on the day it went on the market, was really unexpected.
The current lowest price and initial price of each new card are simply summarized as follows:
RTX 4090 RMB12,999 (RMB 12999)
RTX 4080 RMB8499 (RMB 9499)
RTX 4070 Ti:6299 yuan (6499 yuan)
4, 699 yuan (4799 yuan) for RTX 4070
RX 7900 XTX:7699 yuan (7999 yuan)
RX 7900 XT:5999 yuan (7399 yuan)
Of course, the market changes frequently, and the above prices are for reference only, but they are much better than those of the previous two years.
