NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 GPUs Too See Limited Supply This Quarter, RTX 4080 Price Cut Imminent

NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 40 GPUs are expected to have a limited supply this quarter while the RTX 4080 price cut might be coming soon.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 GPUs Will Face Short Supply This Quarter Followed By A Price Cut On The RTX 4080

In the latest rumor published by Chinese Board Channels (via MyDrivers), it is reported that the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 GPU lineup which includes the RTX 4090, RTX 4080, and RTX 4070 Ti, will face short supply through the remainder of this quarter. There's no reason explained behind the shortages but one can say that it might be due to the limited production of these cards through the Chinese New Year.

Now NVIDIA did happen to produce a larger number of RTX 40 GPUs early on so whether this will affect the availability of the cards is another matter. The RTX 4090 and RTX 4070 Ti had a decent initial supply while the RTX 4080 was produced in much lower quantities than the flagship GeForce RTX 4090. The RTX 4070 Ti being a recent launch has been very popular amongst gamers as data acquired by TechEpiphany from Germany's largest retailer shows. The report also suggests that the RTX 4070 Ti overall shipments are in short supply, accounting for just 8% of the total shipments.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 is once again rumored to get a price cut after supply gets better. The exact timeframe of this price cut is not known but it's long overdue as many similar rumors showed up in the past and the card hasn't been as popular as the other two RTX 40 offerings due to its perf to dollar ratio. The card is currently priced $200 US higher than the Radeon RX 7900 XTX which isn't super competitive since the XTX can outperform it in many games. NVIDIA might drop it to 1100 or if they are feeling even more competitive, to $1000 US but that remains to be seen.

Besides the RTX 40 series cards, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series cards will also see an update with the RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 more or less delisted and the RTX 3070 / RTX 3060 card prices are seeing heavy price adjustments due to the upcoming RTX 4070 and RTX 4060 graphics cards.

The RTX 3060 series cards aren't entirely getting replaced by the RTX 4060 but the standard 3060 cards will be replaced by the newer RTX 3060 GDDR6X models as the older stock eventually dies out. The GeForce 16 series cards will also be replaced by the RTX 3050 for the foreseeable future.
