The prices of AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 graphics cards are currently experiencing significant declines in China, much to the delight of consumers. The overall trend of falling prices below the manufacturer’s suggested retail prices (MSRP) has been observed across various hardware components, presenting a fantastic opportunity for buyers.
Notably, both official price reductions and retailer discounts have been seen for NVIDIA, Intel, and AMD products over the past few months. In China, these price drops have been even more remarkable, with specific variants of graphics cards being sold at prices up to 20% below MSRP.
Take, for instance, the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT 20 GB graphics card, which recently hit its lowest price ever in the US at $762 US.
This represents a 15% decrease from its original MSRP of $899 US and a 10% drop from the new MSRP of $849 US. In China, where the graphics card initially had a high starting MSRP of 7399 RMB ($1063 US), prices have seen a significant decline. The XFX MERC 618 variant, for example, can now be found starting at 5899 RMB or $847 US, making it slightly cheaper than the US MSRP and reflecting a 20% reduction compared to the Chinese MSRP.
However, the most enticing deal can be found on Taobao, where the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT is available for 5499 RMB, equivalent to $790 US. This astonishing price represents a remarkable 25% drop below the MSRP. Chinese gamers are indeed in for an incredible offer, and it is anticipated that prices will continue to decrease for the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT until they match the deals seen in the US in the coming days.
Turning to the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 graphics card, the Manli Gallardo variant is currently available in China for as low as 7399 RMB, representing a substantial 22.1% discount from the MSRP of 9499 RMB. This brings the price down to $1060 US, nearly $50 US lower than the lowest observed price for US buyers at $1109 US. Consequently, Chinese prices exhibit an impressive 11.5% reduction compared to the US MSRP of $1199 US.
Moreover, Intel’s Arc graphics cards have also seen some price reductions. The Arc A750 8 GB variant, for example, starts at 1599 RMB or $229 US. This represents a $20 US decrease from the new US MSRP of $249 US. The Arc A750 offers an excellent option for value-oriented gamers and can be found in the US market for a similar price of around $220 US.
All in all, the current market trend in China presents a unique opportunity for consumers to acquire AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080, and Intel’s Arc graphics cards at highly attractive prices, signaling a promising time for tech enthusiasts and gamers alike.
