Starting next month, ASUS is reducing the price of its graphics accelerators by up to 25%. As the portal writes Tom’s hardwareA representative of the Taiwanese brand confirmed in an email that the changes will affect graphics cards of all price ranges – from entry-level to high-performance enthusiast models. An important clarification: the price reduction for ASUS graphics cards only affects the US market.
The price cut comes as the United States earlier lifted tariffs of between 7.5% and 25% imposed by the previous Trump administration on products imported from China.
“As a result of the US Trade Mission’s lifting of import tariffs for China, gamers and PC enthusiasts will be able toa company spokesman said in a letter.
ASUS is one of the leading manufacturers of graphics accelerators on the market, producing graphics cards based on NVIDIA and AMD chips. It’s also collaborating with Intel on non-reference versions of the upcoming Arc Alchemist series of graphics cards. However, in its statement, the manufacturer only states a price reduction for NVIDIA accelerators.
“The cost reductions concern the entry-level GeForce RTX 3050 and GeForce RTX 3060 graphics accelerators, the mid-range GeForce RTX 3070 graphics accelerators and high-end solutions in the form of the GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3090 models. Buyers can count on price discounts from up to 25% off select models this spring.”— commented the representative of ASUS.
Apparently, other graphics card manufacturers such as MSI, Gigabyte and EVGA will soon follow the example of ASUS. But again, these changes only apply to the US market, where laws were in place to increase import duties on goods shipped from China.
It should be noted that the cost of graphics cards in other markets also continues to fall. Earlier it was noted that in March in Germany and Austria, the average premium on graphics accelerators fell to 25%, which is a record low in the last 15 months.
