NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3090 Ti Founders Edition, released in March, is currently listed for $1599.99 on the US Best Buy site, $100 more than the GeForce RTX 3090’s $1,499.99 MSRP. Check out all the details below.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti FE Available for $1599
According to the latest report, the NVIDIA partner responsible for selling the RTX 3000 Founder Edition GPU series SKUs has just lowered the price of the RTX 3090 Ti model. The GeForce RTX 3090 Ti graphics card launched in March with an MSRP of $2000 is now officially available for $1599.
The GeForce RTX 3090 Ti Founders Edition is still listed at $1,999.99 on NVIDIA’s US official website, therefore it seems that the $1,599.99 is a promotion from Best Buy’s website.
As one of NVIDIA’s authorized distribution partners in North America, Best Buy reacted to the price immediately. Obviously, NVIDIA has a very high chance of starting some promotional plans for the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti in the near future to speed up the selling of the inventory.
On the other hand, the GeForce RTX 3090 Founders Edition already shows “Out of Stock” on the Best Buy website.
At the current suggested price of $1,999.99 for the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti Founders Edition, it is very difficult to sell it in the market. After all, the current demand for graphics cards is much lower than the supply. In addition, there are still a lot of mining cards and second-hand cards in the market.
Best Buy is an official partner of NVIDIA that sells the Founders Edition models exclusively in the United States. You can, however, say that the MSRP has officially been reduced by $400, which is true, except that this is not an official price drop but rather a discount from the auction site. It might be possible that Best Buy is not selling these cards are a loss, but has instead gotten into an agreement with NVIDIA to lower the price. Hopefully, this is a permanent reduction.
