The GeForce RTX 3060 Ti will be the cheapest RTX 30 series graphics to hit the market so far, at least until the release of the RTX 3060 and RTX 3050, but it looks like the graphics customized by the assemblers will not reflect the MRSP offered by NVIDIA, far from it …
The price of the custom RTX 3060 Ti will increase by up to 66%
NVIDIA indicates that the reference graphics (Founders Edition) will be priced at $ 399 / dollars when they hit the market tomorrow, significantly lower than the RTX 3070, 3080 and 3090 especially. However, now the prices for this model’s custom graphics will have been filtered out and we have seen that they are significantly higher.
According to Dateks data, NVIDIA Partners will charge between $ 484 and $ 664 for custom versions of the RTX 3060 Ti. It looks like NVIDIA hasn’t set standards (high and low) for this generation of graphics, so most custom RTX 3060 Tis assemblers will cost between 20-66% more than the benchmark price that NVIDIA gave. at the beginning.
Obviously, prices will drop over time, but since Founders Edition graphics are produced in small quantities, they will sell out quickly, and if the custom models have the same issues we’ve seen on the RTX 3070 and earlier versions without. go further, We could be faced with a new situation of out of stock which will not lower the price, but on the contrary.
What price will they have in Europe?
Likewise, you’ve already seen some of these graphics listed in various online stores, like Amazon UK where an MSI GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Ventus 2X OC (the most basic of the MSI range) costs 490 pounds (around 543 dollars), a third more than the Founders Edition costs. It’s also a comparable story in the United States, where while the Founders Edition will cost $ 399, the cheapest custom graphics are $ 449.99, 12% more expensive.
In Europe we are not going to get rid of it, and as you can see in the image we have placed above the prices will go up through the roof, like this RTX 3060 Ti from PNY (brand that is usually one of the cheapest, that says it all) listed at around $ 527, 32% more expensive than the benchmark edition from NVIDIA Founders.
Either way, these graphics cards will – unless we find ourselves in the same “find and capture” situation that we saw with the RTX 3070 – on sale tomorrow, and we will have doubts about the prices we expect. can find them.
