not where i am, 4080 and 4090, still 500-1000 too much, if not more, 7900 xt/xtx, 400-800 too much, if not more as well. prices have barely dropped at all on those cards, even the rtx 30 series is at least 500 too much in some cases.No surprise as prices for the latest AMD GPU's have already seen discounts on Amazon. The 7900 XT is $100 less than MSRP
This reminds me of a video that LinusTechTips did. "What? The most popular motherboard is a $100 one? The average gamer doesn't want to pay $500 for a motherboard?!"No one is buying GPUs because the prices are just too damn high. That's just it. The manufacturers are charging what consumers are not willing to play, especially when they can get em for less than half price on the second hand market. And that's exactly it. No one is going to buy GPUs again until the prices drop. $2000 for an RTX 4090. You can get a respectable point A to point B commuter car for that price. It's ridiculous. At some point, these companies have to figure out that if you set the prices too high, people stop buying. That's just it
IIRC, the RTX 3060 is the most popular GPU on Steam. If 1080P @60 FPS with high settings is the target then this card is a good match.This reminds me of a video that LinusTechTips did. "What? The most popular motherboard is a $100 one? The average gamer doesn't want to pay $500 for a motherboard?!"
Every review site seems to review only $200-500 ones
Yep.I have the feeling that the ones buying mid-tier GPUs are waiting for another round of price drops if they have a working GPU
