GPU Prices Plummet as Stock Normalizes to Pre-Pandemic Levels – CNET

The past two years has been a frustrating mess of scalpers, bots and expensive Best Buy Totaltech memberships actings as intermediaries between GPU buyers and a shiny new RTX 3080. Well, after months of frantically clicking “Add to Cart” buttons to little avail, the GPU shortage might finally be coming to a close.

Websites such as Best Buy, Overclockers and Micro Center are showing the latest Nvidia and AMD GPUs in stock, as reported earlier Monday by PC Gamer. This means that as long as stock is available for buyers near their local stores, they can go in and pick one up. 

Not only that, but board partners such as Asus have said that they will begin cutting prices by 25% starting in April. 

“As a result of the latest tariff lift on Chinese imports from the Office of the United States Trade Representative, gamers and PC enthusiasts will see lower prices on Asus GeForce RTX 30-series graphic cards starting on April 1st, 2022,” an Asus representative told Tom’s Hardware.

Asus didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
