Bitcoin drop and RTX 4080 being delayed, it might not be a good time to buy a new GPU. And unless you are getting one on sale, sit back and relax.
Bitcoin Drop and RTX 4080 Being Delayed, It Might Not Be a Good Time to Buy a New GPU
If rumors currently are to be believed, then it looks like NVidia’s most anticipated Lovelace GPUs will not be arriving soon, later in the year. It is not even necessary due to the fact that RTX 4000 is not ready to be launched. It has been suggested that the next-gen graphic cards might even arrive later than expected due to the existing stock of RTX 3000 cards that the company wants to ship off before it goes ahead with its release of the new GPUs.
What Is the Reason for the Surplus Current-Gen GeForce Card
The major reason for the surplus of current-gen GeForce cards is of course the market crash of crypto. The crash in crypto markets has led to mass sell-offs of mining GPUs and also a downturn in the sales for Nvidia. If this is the case then it will be the wise choice to not buy a GPU until later this year.
Amazon prime day is coming and it is about to come with a lot of tasty deals just in case you come across a GPU that is on sale and you want to get your hands on, do not hesitate. Amazon prime day might just be your best chance of snapping up a great deal on the best graphic cards just before the launch of the RTX 4000. This is because Nvidia will be slow to drop the price of its existing cards before the new generation is out.
And if you are getting a GPU at a cut-price this prime day, you should not get to start worrying about graphic cards for some time. GPUs already in the market will drop the price as soon as the Lovelace cards launch. With that being said, you will get an opportunity to save money or either grab a powerful new RTX card even if it means that you will have to wait till December.
