MSI may be underwhelmed by NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 4080 pricing, but they recommend the RTX 4070 Ti as a better deal. The MSRP for the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 GPU was $1,199.99 when it was announced. The price has not lowered since its release, which is surprising given that AMD released its graphics card series at a lower price than its competitors. On Twitter, the business promoted the new GeForce RTX 4070 Ti, saying that the graphics card is “not as awful as a 4080!”
The problem stems from the fact that price has yet to begin to fall, and stock is not moving. Other graphics cards’ prices are continuing to fall in various areas, including the United States and Europe, so it stands to reason that NVIDIA would want to be aggressive with pricing during the first half of the year.
However, both AMD and NVIDIA have had product problems in recent months. Temperature issues have been reported with AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX graphics cards, causing throttling and reducing performance.
With the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080’s expensive price, it’s no surprise that MSI is concerned about having a large amount of overstock due to exorbitant expenses and potential trust difficulties with consumers wishing to upgrade to the Ada Lovelace generation.
MSI GeForce RTX 4070 Ti series prices currently range from $839 for the Ventus 3X OC to $899 or somewhat higher for the Gaming X Trio GPU (depending on the seller) to $900+ for the premium SUPRIM series graphics cards. MSI currently offers all models of the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti graphics cards available at MSRP on their official website.
