MSI Wants Gamers to Know That The GeForce RTX 4070 Ti Graphics Cards Are More Affordable Than The RTX 4080 Graphics Cards.
The MSRP for the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 GPU was $1,199.99 when it was released. The price has not dropped since its release, which is surprising given that AMD released its graphics card line at a lower price than its competitors. On Twitter, the company promoted the new GeForce RTX 4070 Ti, saying that the graphics card is “not as bad as a 4080!”
The problem stems from the fact that pricing has yet to begin to fall, and stock is not moving. Other graphics cards’ prices are continuing to fall in several markets, 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 experienced product malfunctions in recent months. Temperature issues have been reported with AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX graphics cards, causing throttling and affecting performance. With the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080’s high price, it’s no surprise that MSI is concerned about having a large amount of overstock due to high costs and potential trust issues with consumers looking 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 slightly higher for the Gaming X Trio GPU (depending on the seller) and $900+ for the premium SUPRIM series graphics cards. MSI currently has all variants of the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti graphics cards available at MSRP in its official store, as shown below:
MSI’s entire 4070 Ti graphics card lineup is even available at a small discount over at Newegg, as seen below:
The world will have to wait and see if NVIDIA intends to reduce the price of the RTX 4080 GPU or if it will remain at the high asking price for several months.
