Ooh, just like with their surplus of 10-series gpus!Maybe Nvidia and its partners are sitting on more stock than they'd like to and Nvidia decided to lower the target MSRP preemptively to keep inventory rolling smoothly.
There is that too, though nearly $300 for a lower-mid tier card is legitimately horrid IMO. GPU prices in general are still grossly out of wack for what you get relative to similarly priced 2-3 years old models that are still on retail shelves today.Clearly the reason they are dropping the price just prior to the 5600 XT launch is to make the 5600 XT look worse in reviews.
They didn't even have to do anything when the 5500XT launched. That one bombed on it's own.Clearly the reason they are dropping the price just prior to the 5600 XT launch is to make the 5600 XT look worse in reviews.
