Prices for current video cards in China collapsed

Are The Chinese video card market is experiencing a natural price collapse due to a sharp and stable collapse of the cryptocurrency. A huge number of used NVIDIA Ampere and AMD RDNA 2 generation graphics accelerators fell onto the shelves almost simultaneously. This led to the fact that local retailers are forced to significantly reduce prices for new models that they cannot sell at the recommended price.

So, one indifferent user of the Chinese social network Baidu took the trouble to collect data on the prices of video cards into a general table. Based on this data, many stores are selling the new RTX 3090 Ti for just $1,415 (in Chinese currency), which is 38% below its recommended price. A similar story is with the RX 6900 XT from AMD-the video card is sold 37.5% cheaper than the RC.

We hope that the gray import program will also affect the video card market, and soon we will receive many relevant offers at reasonable prices on retailers' websites. After all, you should not rely on large Russian chains of well-known stores.
