Nvidia's RTX 3090 Ti reportedly has an MSRP of $1499

Will this be a real MSRP?

Nvidia's RTX 3090 Ti reportedly has an MSRP of $1499

Nvidia's RTX 3090 Ti reportedly has the same price as the RTX 3090

Nvidia's RTX 3090 Ti will be the company's most powerful gaming product, promising users over 40 TFLOPs of computational performance and faster 21Gbps GDDR6X memory modules. That said, the graphics card is not much more powerful than the company's RTX 3090, at least on paper. 

Reports have emerged stating that Nvidia's RTX 3090 Ti will only be 10% more powerful than the company's RTX 3090 at 4K, with CapFrameX suggesting that the graphics card will have a 450W TDP and a 2GHz boost clock.

If these reports are accurate, Nvidia's RTX 3090 Ti will not be a major upgrade for RTX 3090 owners. With this in mind, it makes sense why MEGAsizeGPU has claimed that Nvidia's RTX 3090 Ti will have the same $1499 MSRP as its predecessor. That said, premium models will cost more than Nvidia's MSRP.

Graphics cards are slowly dropping in price

Over the past few months, GPU prices have been steadily falling, and while most models are still not available at prices close to their manufacturer's MSRPs, they are much more affordable than they were previously. With this in mind, and the RTX 3090 Ti's expected performance levels, it makes sense for Nvidia not to aim too high with their RTX 3090 Ti's MSRP pricing, especially when AMD reportedly has an RX 6950 XT on the horizon. 

If today's pricing trends continue, graphics cards may soon lower to pricing levels that can be considered reasonable. This is great news for the PC gaming market, as the past year had effectively pushed the idea of budget PC gaming out of existence.

Nvidia's RTX 3090 Ti reportedly has an MSRP of $1499

If Nvidia pushes for higher pricing for its RTX 3090 Ti, we expect the RTX 3090 Ti;s launch to be filled with negative press stories. With electricity prices rising across the world and inflation rising, launching a graphics card higher pricing with a minor performance upgrade and high power requirements will generally be seen as a poor move from Nvidia. To say the least, gamers are sick of high GPU prices.

Being honest with 4000 series coming at the end of the year why on earth would you buy one so you can get a 5% boost on 3dmark has to be the most pointless card in years.Quote

gpu prices are going down : No, not at least for me. Scalping is still a big thing here in Spain. With PCcomponentes doing its August with huge scamm/scalping prices.

More over, this price is not to be believed. Prices will be much much worse, even if noone is buying them. This price is the price of an RTX 3080ti. RTX 3090 here are more in the 2000€ (2200$). RTX 3090ti will be more in the 2500€, almost 2800$ here

i don't know where are you seeing this drop in GPU prices, maybe in USA, but not here.Quote

I'm sick of high prices and higher power consumption cards. Opposite of the way it used to be. More power for more performance rather than less power for the same amount of power.Quote

Yeah, I'm so with you on that one. Pulling 400-600W just from a single GPU these days are just insane. The days of the 1080 Ti are gone basically...Quote

Its just a phase, similar to what happened with the NVIDIA 400 series, AMD caught NVIDIA off guard, they tried to make MCM work within a year to compete with AMD but apparently failed, so they needed to come up with a never-before-seen gargantuan die to compete with AMD's MCM performance, which in turn killed their power efficiency. But they are still working on an MCM design. Hopefully RTX 5000 series will come with an MCM design soon after and bring power consumption down to earthly levels. I for one am skipping RTX 4000 entirelly, I can already see the piles of dead RTX 4XXX GPUS with cold solder joints, defective RAM modules and blown out VRM components.

If NVIDIA ends up losing the performance war they want to make sure it's for as little as possible, but of course they will try to keep the performance crown even if they need to release an RTX 4090Ti SUPER with 1000W Power draw and you need two PSUs to power a system with it.

In a way it's a good thing, it will delay NVIDIA's plans to raise their GPU prices, AMD will probably try to keep prices as is so they can gain market share liek they did with Ryzen.Quote
