MSI RTX 30 cards actually getting cheaper
According to the latest report from the MSI factory, the company has reduced the pricing on its RTX 30 GPUs.
MSI is lowering pricing on RTX 3080/Ti series by up to 94 USD, claims a report from Board Channels forums. This is the first reduction reported in many weeks.
According to the post, RTX 3080 series will now be 300 to 600 RMB (47 to 94 USD) cheaper, while RTX 3070/Ti cards will cost 100 to 300 RMB (16 to 31 USD) less. At the same time, MSI is reducing prices on RTX 3060/Ti models by 100 to 200 RMB (15 to 31 USD). This means that the only card that did not receive a price cut is RTX 3090 Ti.
The price reduction only affects some models, while others will actually be more expensive compared to November. The report does not go into detail about which models specifically are affected by this price adjustment.
