ASUS slashing GPU prices by up to 25% starting April, but only for the United States (for now)

Not an April’s Fool joke. 

Since January this year, we have been reporting on the downward trend in GPU prices. There is a noticeable double-digit price drop on a monthly basis now, with a good outlook for GPUs to reach the original MSRP at some point in the next two months.

The government of the United States has confirmed last week it is dropping tariffs on some PC components from China, that includes graphics cards. Following this decision, ASUS confirmed it will be lowering prices of its GPUs in the country up to 25%.

In an email sent by ASUS representative to Tom’s Hardware, the company promises to lower the prices for various SKUs from low-end to high-end series starting from April 1st. The statement only mentions GeForce RTX 30 GPUs, though:

As a result of the latest tariff lift on Chinese imports from the Office of the United States Trade Representative, Gamers and PC enthusiasts will see lower prices on ASUS GeForce RTX 30-series graphic cards starting on April 1st, 2022. […]

Lower prices will affect entry level GeForce RTX 3050 and RTX 3060, mid-range RTX 3070 and high performance RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 graphics cards.

No other board partners have thus far confirmed to lower the prices, but it is very likely that other companies are to follow this trend.

It is important to note that US tariffs do not directly affect the prices in other countries. However, when the US tariffs were introduced, the GPU prices have skyrocketed around the globe. With that in mind, there is a good reason to expect this US price cut to have a global impact in some form.
