August 12 news, according to “Moore’s theorem is dead” news, NVIDIA is helping graphics card manufacturers to clear the inventory of RTX 30 series high-end graphics cards to make room for the RTX 40 series.
According to the report, NVIDIA has directly intervened to help the graphics card maker clear its inventory of GA102 GPU (RTX 3080 and RTX 3090) cards, thus allowing the RTX 40 series to have a larger volume of pre-orders. He said that even with the help of NVIDIA, it will take several months to completely clear the inventory of RTX 30 high-end graphics cards. In addition, graphics card manufacturers will “own” mid-range RTX 30 cards, such as RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 3070.
The media believe that if the next graphics card inventory remains high, AMD and NVIDIA will take “aggressive action” before the end of August, prices will continue to fall.
MSI, Sotera, MaxSun and other graphics card manufacturers have said that during the period from August 8, 2022, to August 28, 2022, players can get a free GeForce RTX 3080 and above graphics cards, including GeForce RTX 3080, 3080Ti, 3090, 3090Ti graphics cards or computer units, at designated event stores, worth 360 RMB worth of Blizzard game credits. This activity somewhat confirms the news that “Moore’s theorem is dead”.
