A while back ASUS announced that it would be increasing the prices of its graphics cards and motherboards to keep up with the increased tariffs as well as the shortage of various components which is affecting the industry as a whole. Now, Zotac and EVGA have done the same, albeit quietly, increasing the price-tags of the GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards by as much as 20%+.
You can see in the data compiled by Videocardz that Zotac has hiked its graphics card priced by 12-15%, with some parts seeing an increase of up to 23%:
- GeForce RTX 3090 Trinity: $1,549.99 to $1,899.99 (23%)
- GeForce RTX 3060 Ti: $439.99 to $529.99 (20%)
EVGA’s price hikes are less noticeable, with most models seeing an increase of 5-10%. This brings the pricing of the RTX 3080s close to the $900 mark, the RTX 3090 between $1,700-1,800, and the 3070 a bit over $600.
After this price update, EVGA’s RTX 3060 Ti’s are quite a bit cheaper than Zotac’s offerings despite being superior both in terms of cooling as well as aesthetics.
